“Enjoyed the stay VERY much!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

The hotel is on right on the Boardwalk. Fantastic location! As a Priority Club member we asked for an upgrade to an ocean front room and got it with no question. It was terrific! I was boardering on rating it excellent but it is a few years old now and a little worn just here and there. The beds were very comfortable but not over the top and the furniture very nice. The room was huge -- it was like a small apartment. The entire staff was so very courteous, friendly and helpful! We ordered room service which came exceptionally quick and the food was delicious and bountiful. I want to stay here in the summer as the pool area looks fantastic. If you get a chance to stay during the off season, the prices are incredibly low compared to during season - which of course is typical. I will definately return.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

The 5 of us stayed here Memorial Wknd 2012 and we had a great time. The rooms were very clean, and we had a beautiful ocean view room with a balcony. The 2 double beds in the room were comfortable and the couch in the living room converts to a sofa bed, so the 5 of us were very comfortable with ample room. The kitchen area was a bit small but very clean and efficient. Pots and pans are provided upon request, so my friends and I took advantage of this as we made our own breakfast and quick lunches everyday. The only issue I had was the jacuzzi tub would get backed up often and the maintenance man would take forever to come fix it, and when he did show up, he was a bit rude. The staff is somewhat friendly, the front desk folks definitely do not know how to smile or be polite. Location was great, as it was walking distance to stores like CVS, fast food spots, liquor stores, restaurants and diners. The beach is literally less than 2 minutes away. The restaurant in the hotel served good food. The hotel offers free parking for one car, so if you have more than one car in your group, street parking is hard to find. Overall, the hotel room was nice and met our expectations, although I feel it was overpriced, but because Ocean City is a tourist/ family area and we stayed during Memorial wknd, I won't complain.

We stayed here for Crusin Weekend the first weekend in October 2012. Location is great, we had a king suite with a jacuzzi in the room. Room was clean but cold and uninviting. The jacuzzi is in the bedroom and all of the floors are tiled. No carpeting so it felt like we were in a display room. The price we paid was over $500 for two nights. Since we waited too late in the season we had very few choices, thats on me. The other thing that this place lacks was parking. There are not enough spaces for the rooms and parking spots are tight. Most of the parking is under the hotel and there is a separate parking lot two blocks away. We had breakfast in the restaurant and it was fantastic. Being is an ocean front room topped the weekend.

My wife and I stayed here on a whim. It was my birthday and we wanted to do something different. We live in Va., so we did a little gambling at Ocean Downs and then came to the hotel. I was a little undernerved at first about parking and it seemed like we where coming in a back entrance.The front desk is on the second floor, which was different for me. Anyway we got a suite and let me tell you it was breath taking. It was huge, full fridge, oven, a bathroom you could live in(3 shower heads) and 2 large rooms. It also had a spa tub in the bedroom. There are 2 restaurants we ate at the casual restaurant. The food was awesome and so was the atmosphere. We will be back for sure and take this experence with us when looking for hotels in other cities. Good Job Holiday Inn !!

My boyfriend and I loved our stay here. The bed was very comfortable, and the room was spotless. We stayed on the 11th floor and had an amazing view of the ocean. Even though our room was near the elevators, we never heard a thing from outside the room. We will surely stay here again in the future!

We stay here every January for 4 nights with family, we always get the same two rooms on the second floor. It was nice to see that the TV's had been upgraded to flat screens. The pool seems to have gone downhill in recent years. It was definitely not as warm as in years past, and this year it was very cloudy. Pots and pans could use an upgrade, as could carpet. Overall however, our stay was very enjoyable, front desk was helpful as always. Housekeeping is excellent. Any shortages of towels or linen needs are addressed very timely. We did experience noise from the excersise room at midnight one night and the front desk quickly took care of it (I guess in a Karma kind of way, the next night someone complained about our loud talking!). At any rate, the rates are very reasonable, food is still above average for a hotel restaurant and the overall experience is a very positive one. We will be back next year for sure.

Room Tip: Avoid floors 4 and 9 as 3 and 8 are smoking floors and smoke rises!

For the past 2 years, My family,friend and I have been staying at The Holiday Inn in OC and it is great. The 1st year that we stayed there we had rented an oceanfront suite which was beautiful and was perfect for my friend and I to sit on the balcony at night and have sodas and watch the waves and the people walking on the boardwalk. The pools were great because there was a kiddie pool with a waterslide,mini lazy river and a whirlpool that seemed to be popular with the kids and was always crowded!
My family's summer vacations have always been amazing in OC.
