“GREAT PLACE TO STAY”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2012

Great view of the ocean--Parked the car (they provide a pass)- never had to drive--- everything in walking distance--the pool was the largest I had swam in---But the Front Porch is the best-- it is a nice place to just sit and people watch or to look at the ocean--you meet the nicest people--then you dont have to leave the hotel hjust go to the resatraunt that is on the premises

Tried Harrison Hall based on the location and a friends recommendation from a stay several years previously. First, the good. Staff was friendly. Location is excellent on the boardwalk and beach. The wide front porch is a nice place for people watching except for all the smokers. Now the not so good. The physical facility is showing its age and lack of updating badly. Carpets are dingy. Bathroom fixtures very dated and showing use damages. Plumbing for shower could not control the mix of hot and cold very well and made for an interesting hot and then cold then hot shower. This could actually be dangerous.

Overall, this seems like a facility waiting to be sold to a large chain hotel for tear down and rebuild.

Found this hotel online and let me just say, looks can be deceiving! Aside from housekeeping, the rest of the staff was horrible! The first night of staying there the shower wasn't working and wasn't draining any water. They didn't have any maintenance there to take care of the situation. The room was dirty and smelled like mildew. They only had one elevator for the entire hotel and was barely big enough to fit two people inside with their luggage. This place is definitely over priced! The only thing we liked about this place was the view from the porch, whenever you actually found a chair to sit on. Overall, the trip was amazing but the hotel was horrible. Would not recommend this place to anyone!

I've stayed in several hotels, in Ocean City, over the years and this one is by far the best. The hotel is clean and staff members are friendly. The hotel has a pool and a bar outside and is so nice when you don't want to deal with the sand. Everthing you need is within walking distance. I couldn't have ask for a better vacation; I have recommended this hotel to all my family and friends and they too have had great experiences. I definitely will be returning to stay in this hotel again.

Room Tip: Ocean view is beautiful.

what a find! the staff and other guests are friendly and you can't best the charm and the amazing porch! location is perfect and unless you go to the beach to hang out in your room there's no reason the rooms aren't big enough. we will never stay anywhere else!
