My husband surprised me with a weekend getaway to Ocean City. Oddly enough, he'd never been there in the years that we been together...and me - not back since I was a kid. Let's say the excursion whether god or bad would've been interesting. I was a little leery, when he finally had to tell me where we were staying (he got a little turned around). I guess for me "Holiday Inn" doesn't resonate a vacation stay/sleep here - maybe it's "Inn." At any rate, I screamed a little inside, but oh well. However, surprised from the start - the check in experience was easy and they were welcoming. The lobby desk was arrayed with a gigantic basket of bananas and oranges. They informed us about their in house fine dining restaurant and gave us a coupon to use, during our stay. We were also told about the other bar/grill on site and open & close times. It was nice & they mentioned that my husband didn't need to do anything else, because he booked through Expedia.
We had a King, Garden view room and it was cute. Nice kitchen area equipped w/apartment sized fridge, stove, cookware, etc. I believe our room could technically sleep four - the sofa may have been a pull out. There was a patio, which was nice, because from my room I could see the Tennis courts and the outdoor pool. Not that these activities were in use yet, end of April was a little chilly for me. The bed was comfortable and the room was clean - trust me. I'm kinda phobic about bed bugs and whenever I travel, I pull back the sheets and check the edges of the mattress for traces. Yuck, but - if something looks fishy, I'm outta there! (LOL). We scoped out the place went to the fitness center, the indoor pool and jacuzzi (there's a small game room too). There was a wedding there, as well - so we ventured to check out the OC. :-)
Make sure if you come to Ocean City, MD you also go to some of the other spots for the traditions of eats in the area...(I'll just add a review). ;-o
