We chose this motel due to good reviews and location. Right behind the boardwalk and beach on 14th street. The room was clean and comfortable. Really enjoyed sitting outside our 2nd floor room, just watching all the people going to the beach and renting surrey or bike rides across the street. The pool was very refreshing and well kept.

We just spent two days at the Harris House Motel. The rooms were very clean and it is right behind the boardwalk with easy access to the beach. The rooms have a microwave, fridge and TV as well. If you want to rent a bicycle, just walk across the parking lot. Everything is so convenient!

The motel is very clean and super convenient, just steps away from the boardwalk. Park your car once (free parking) and you never need to move it again. Beach passes included. Clean pool. Friendly staff and guests. No frills though the rooms have all the basics (tv, fridge, microwave). Coffee in the lobby in the morning. That said, you are... More

The room is real clean and the pool is crystal clear. Steps from the boardwalk and the parking is great. My wife and I stay here often. We come down the shore to see the 9'th street concerts every year. And part of the fun is talking to Michael who works in the office. When we pull up and see... More

We had the pleasure of staying at Harris House Motel May 21, 22 and 23. We were extremely pleased with the cleanliness of our room, the shower was great and the beds were very comfortable. When I needed an extra blanket, it was on it's way to our room before I finished requesting it. The Boardwalk was a very short... More

We stayed here for a wedding we attended, and couldn't have been happier, staff was extremely friendly, someone was always cleaning, great pool, centrally located steps from the Ocean City boardwalk..no frills, no elevator, so bear that in mind, but would certainly stay here again, very pleased

I stayed here last august 4 one night. It had a very good location; it was right next to the boardwalk. The rooms were your average hotel room. It had 2 beds, 1 tv and a bathroom. It was pretty clean. The pool was nice and warm and the staff seemed courteous.

Had a fantastic end-of-season beach weekend! Harris House staff (especially Michael) was friendly and accommodating. Rooms were very clean & nicely sized. Furniture was all in great condition and the beds were nice and comfortable. And the location is perfect -- only steps away from the Boardwalk. Can't wait to go back!
