Possibly the largest pool in Ocean City. Very close to the Boardwalk and Beach. Although the rooms are not large, and the bathrooms are small, the rooms are clean and comfortable. Our family of 4 enjoyed our stay. We will return here. This is a 5/5 relative to other family hotels in the area. The price was fare for being... More

This is a very nice hotel really close to the boardwalk, which surprises me that it's cheaper than most of the hotels in Ocean City. The rooms are very clean and well up to date! One complaint I have is that the bathroom is small, but usable. The pool is great, heated pool, so you could go swimming in September.... More

Well maintained property within a block from boards and beach. As long as you set your expectations that it is a motel not hotel. Good for shorter stays and if weather is nice you're not spending much time in the room. We had a room on 2nd floor facing pool which is fine since we went after Labor Day and... More

The staff is sincerely friendly and accomodating. Room was clean, and ridiculously close to the boardwalk. No frills, but so what? You don't come to Ocean City to hang out in your room. For the money spent, this was probably the best value I've across in all my years of traveling. Harris House, thank you!

Background: I traveled with family to Ocean City to compete in the OCNJ Half Marathon. We found this motel through a combination of searching TripAdvisor and oceancityvacation.com. Booking/Check-in: I made our reservation via a phone call and needed to mail a check to complete the reservation. We arrived after check-in time (3pm) and our room was ready. The Motel: The... More

We were very pleased to find that the previous reviews were accurate. Harris House was truly in the best spot, steps from the boardwalk, beach, arcade, bike rentals, restaurants, everything. Rooms are nothing fancy or large, but very clean. Staff was very helpful and kind. The pool was very clean with plenty of lounge chairs. And all for a very... More

The location and proximity to beach and boardwalk is the best part of staying at the Harris House. The room was very basic and the bathroom was very small. It was very clean. Refrigerator and microwave were a nice touch. The staff was very courteous at check in and check out. There is a pool but we did not use... More

We stayed at Harris House from 8/24/8/25 in a street view double room. First of all, the location of this property is amazing. Steps from the beach/boardwalk and diagonal from Manco and Manco pizza. Across the street is a Jilly's arcade and bike rental. We also discovered Clancy's by the Sea, right on the boardwalk between 12th and 13th, excellent... More

We came down for the weekend and didn't want to leave! The employees were helpful and very nice. Check in was quick and the rooms were very clean and comfortable. The entire hotel grounds were kept nice. The location was awesome, steps from boardwalk at an excellent location. The heated pool was fun and not too crowded. Plenty of room... More

Great location, wonderful pool. Stayed in a 1st floor poolside room. Just a few steps to the boardwalk. My 4 year old son had a blast at the pool and the arcade next door. Everything at the location was kept spotless. The parking lot can be a bit tight with a big vehicle but we always found a spot. We... More
