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!

I stayed at the Harris House this past weekend with my boyfriend. It is an average hotel but overall I did enjoy my stay. There were some things I didn't like but there were things I really did like! PROS: 1. The location is perfect...steps away from the boardwalk and beach. 2. The pool is a pretty decent size, extremely... More

Lynn at front desk very accommodating to a couple requests we had and it is very much appreciated. Our room was very clean and comfortable with two double beds. Yes the bathroom space is small, but that's no reason to give this motel an excellent. The bathroom was spotlessly clean. All the staff we met were friendly and eager to... More

The Harris House Motel came highly recommended by a friend of mine. He said so many nice things about it that I had to take my family there for our annual trip to the shore. Their mini-week special cannot be beat. It is, hands down, the best value in Ocean City. You get a very clean room, superb location, excellent... More

We normally stay at our daughters house but with siblings and Grand children coming from afar it made sense to stay close and give the kids room to play, our week at the Harris House was more than satisfactory, very clean( our housekeeper Katrina did a great job), very friendly( staff from desk to service). We had a room on... More

Very clean, very friendly and helpful staff, next to boardwalk and good price. This is not a five star hotel, but it's a great location at a good price. We had a problem with out AC unit and a staff member was at our room within minutes - literally less than 5 minutes. Pool was nice, parking was good, and... More

Booked this place for the weekend for a much needed shore getaway. Very clean and less than a block from boardwalk and Mack n Mancos is right there as well as beach access and public bathrooms. This place is way nicer than the ocean front hotel....that is unless you enjoy bright blue astroturf on all the walkways ;-)

This was my second visit to Ocean City. I stayed elsewhere the first time but went to see the Harris house while there. I liked what I saw and decided to go there for my family summer trip. Had a great time. Rooms were very clean. The entire staff from reservations, front desk and housekeeping were accommodating and friendly. We... More

My family and I visited Ocean City NJ a few years ago and I remembered seeing the Harris House when we visited. It looked clean and neat. We had a great experience this past week. Great pool, clean rooms, friendly staff, plus it is so close to beach. Hotel is right off boardwalk. Would highly recommend!
