Our family recently stayed at the hotel for two nights and we had two rooms. Both rooms were very clean. The rooms are nice, we had the south ocean view rooms. These rooms had a gas fireplace in the corner which was a very nice touch and the wall-mounted flat screen TV with DVD player was also a nice modern convenience. The beds, although small since they were doubles in lieu of queens were comfortable and outfitted with decent linens which I believe are standards for Holiday Inn properties now. The rooms were also relatively quiet, little noise could be heard from the hallways and adjoining rooms.
The rooms also had a small kitchenette and they were very small. There was a small table for two, but practically useless since it is right up against the wall and no where really to move or expand it. The kitchennette and bathrooms, although clean and reasonably maintained are showing their age. A revamp to the kitchens and bathrooms would go a long way.
The common areas - lobby, indoor pool, restaurants are all very nice, clean, and well-kept. The outdoor grounds are impeccable and the outdoor pool area with tennis court, pool bar, sundeck, and beach hammocks look like an awesome place to enjoy the sun during the warm months.
We have stayed in many Ocean City properties, including some of the best including the Hilton and Courtyard by Marriott properties. You cannot expect the same level of accomodations at this property, but for the price difference it certainly is a good choice. You can expect a clean and comfortable room and is generally above average when compared to the majority of other lodging choices in OC. The staff from the front desk to housekeeping were all friendly and professional.
