i enjoyed staying @ Harris House, very clean. Grounds were kept tidy & pool area as well. Air conditioner was a bit on the noisy side, but did its job. Check in was fast and were given information on area. Very good location. Our family enjoys Ocean City & this hotel was a good choice. Thanks Again.

This motel is at a great location, located just off the boardwalk. It is clean and the staff is very nice. However, our room was located on the first floor street side of the motel and the noise is unbelievable. At night you hear people walking past the motel as they come off of the boardwalk, which makes it very... More

My experience was fabulous, so let me start with the negatives, or rather the least positive things. Later on, I will talk about the fabulous location and the truly wonderful staff. The room itself is roomy and great, with flatscreen tv, fridge, microwave, comfy beds, and nice bathroom and shower. The WIFI is free and reasonably fast. Ask for the... More

You get a great location, right off the Boardwalk. Rooms are clean with comfortable beds. Our only request is that the pool be open later in the evenings. If you have lots of luggage, you may want to stay on the 1st floor.

Thanks for the extremely positive review. Our policy right now is to allow swimming from sunrise to sundown, which in the height of the summer is about 8pm. However we hear your request and at the end of this season, we will discuss potentially leaving it open later in the evening.Hope to see you again soon and we are so... More

I just spent one night at Harris House but enjoyed my stay. I arrived early in the day (a few hours before official check in). When I called to see if I could check in early or if I would have to find a parking space elsewhere I was informed to stop at the hotel. I was also informed that... More

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

Hi Mary - glad you enjoyed your stay! The free parking is one of our favorite things we have to offer guests, one spot for each of our 74 rooms, without having to leave your keys at the front desk. FYI, free wi-fi is available throughout the property. If you stay with us again, just ask for the password at... 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
