My Sister and my daughter and nieces have stayed in your facility for the past several summers. Everything is always wonderful. The staff is courteous and friendly and accommodating and the place is always clean and neat. I would recommend the Harris House to anybody. It's in a great location and is a wonderful place to stay.

Thank you first and foremost for the comments about the rooms being nice and clean - our housekeeping staff works hard and takes great pride in their rooms, and we have a double check system so that nothing is overlooked. As for the location, we agree that 12th street feels "in the center" of everything. Over the years, much of... More

If you keep in mine your 1/2 block from the beach & boardwalk, the cost of the room per night is easier to take. They allow you to park in the lot even before your room is ready and stay parked until about 3 after you check out. Very nice group of employees....big smiles from them all weekend.

We have stayed at the Harris House twice. Both stays were consistently fantastic. The rooms were so clean, I doubt you can even find a corner of the room with dust. The staff is very accommodating and responsive to any needs that may arise. The location is right off the boardwalk, and the price compared to others of this caliber... More

My wife and I have vacationed, for many years in Ocean City, NJ. We had decided to find a new place to stay. While looking, we had come across Harris House. We had passed it many times during the years, but never thought to give it a try. Our reservations was very quick and easy. If fact, Harris House sent... More

Location is amazing. Can't beat it. Right on the beach. So easy to walk back and forth from beach to room when the kids inevitably forget something in the room ;) Steps from restaurants, shops, ice cream, crepes, pretty much everything you need. Rooms are clean. Staff is great. Pool is a great bonus - and is a good size... More

We stayed here on a Saturday night for a short family getaway. The motel's location is ideal, Just steps to the Ocean City boardwalk. Our room was basic with 2 full size beds, a full bath,a small table and 2 chairs, a microwave and a fridge. And of course air conditioning. The room was very clean which is all I... More

Thank you so much for the positive review! We love to hear that you were able to pop back to the hotel from the beach when you needed a relaxing nap or refresher. That's the perfect way to take advantage of our beach-block location. We hope to see you again next time you visit Ocean City, and thanks again for... More

Each year we have spent a weekend in Ocean City, New Jersey and have tried different hotels each year. We have been focusing on hotels in the$125-175 price range per night. This is the best one that we have found at this price point. Standing from the balcony of this hotel, you could throw a frisbee and land it on... More

This motel, complete with heated pool, is right down the ramp of the boardwalk. We stayed there last weeked (their opening of the season). A few minutes after we checked in, I noticed the sink didn't work. Less than a minute after I called the front desk, the maintenance man was at the door. He fixed it quickly and I... More

Hi, Thanks a lot for that review. Going by your Senior Contributor status you are clearly someone who takes travel seriously, as do we. I was the manager who double-checked on the sink for you, but honestly that is the nature of every staff member we have on board at the Harris House. We've been family run from day one,... More
