I booked this hotel on trip advisor because of the good reviews. I went in blind. Everyone was right, very clean and comfortable, I joined the rewards program and saved. The value of a amazing breakfast and convenience of having the beach across the street and a beautiful park out back, and a pool and a hot tub was worth... More

Nothing but good things to say. From the friendliness of the staff to the cleanliness of the room, it was great. We had requested a high floor bayside room which they honored. The room was immaculate and had everything we needed. A refrigerator a little larger than a mini, a microwave, and cabinets. The rain showerhead in the bathroom was... More

Great nights sleep in very comfy bed. Crisp clean sheets. Lots of large towels. Two pools and an excellent hot breakfast. Well worth the price we paid. Can't wait to go back. Thanks to the staff! Halls were quiet even though hotel was full.

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel this past weekend. It was comfortable, clean and fairly quiet. The free breakfast was good, but definitely crowded from 9-9:30. It's nice that the hotel is only one street away from the beach. Several restaurants within walking distance.

Winging it with two toddlers worked out really well! On such short notice, it was affordable, clean, and only one block from the beach. The 24hr convenience store within was so helpful. While still in your pajamas, you can grab a quick bite at the breakfast buffet to hold you off until you venture off later. Last but certainly not... More

Really enjoyed our stay in July, quiet and away from the hustle and bustle A. lot of stores and places to eat nearby. The Hamburger restaurant in back of the Hotel was great. Clean rooms and pleasant staff. The free breakfast was a really good deal. Far from the boardwalk, but we just drove and parked for only $5.00. Would... More

This was a surprisingly well kept "secret" off the beaten path. I needed a quick get away from the hustle and bustle life in DC. From the moment I signed in the Guest Services Manager, Paige Small was very professional and organized. Her positive attitude started my whole trip off on a positive note. Especially, after getting lost a couple... More

Great hotel sitting bay side in OC. The hotel sits adjacent to North Point Park in Ocean City and is a very short walk to plenty of restaurants and a 5 minute (or less) walk to the beach. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The entire staff was friendly from the minute we checked in until the minute we checked... More

We visit OC every summer and usually stay with my parents in Hidden Harbour. This year there were too many of us and we ended up with two rooms at the Holiday Inn Express for four nights over the 4th of July weekend. First, I have to compliment the staff. The general manager, Marie, responded quickly to my emails and... More
