Trip with kids. Hotel Staff was super. Beds were so uncomfortable that after 3 nights, I ache all over. I think the location stinks, too. I have never been to OC before and did not realize how far from the boardwalk we would be.

Enjoyed staying at this hotel. Really clean and comfortable. I've had a totally restful stay. I would definitely recommend staying there to anybody if you are not looking for any ocean view from you room window.

My familiy (husband and 3 kids) stay in this hotel about 4 times each year during the off season to visit with our Family who lives on the shore. We just LOVE this hotel! It NEVER NEVER disappoints. It is remarkably clean and the pool is amazing. The off season price can't be beat!

I loved the place and the location is convenient , however it is far from the boardwalk. Ledo's pizza, subway , a burger joint called Abbeys and a park surrounds the hotel. The park is where you can feed the ducks and there is a great trail for going on a walk. The park also has a fishing pier. Abbeys... More

We stayed at this hotel over New Years in order to take advantage of it's close proximity to the Winterfest of Lights and the New Years Eve Fireworks at Northside Park in Ocean City. It's awesome because the Park is directly behind the hotel. The hotel itself is very clean but a bid dated. The furniture and décor looks like... More

We stayed here on our honeymoon and so happy about it! We booked a suite and the extra space was very nice. The staff was so friendly and accommodating, the hot breakfast every morning was amazing and offered everything you could want, and the location was perfect for us. We don't like a lot of hustle and bustle, so this... More

We are Platinum HI members, but first time to this HI Express. Very clean and comfortable and rates were reasonable. Good location at north end of Town adjacent to Northside Park. Staff was very friendly and accommodating, and you could always count on a hearty "Good Morning!" at the included breakfast each morning. Recommend renting bikes from PMI Rentals right... More
