We arrived in Ocean City looking to relax and enjoy two days for my birthday. We cut our stay short and stayed one night. Pictures on the internet for this hotel are extremely misleading. They have been accurate when the hotel was new but are now far from what you find inside. When checking in I asked for a room with an ocean view and was told that they had not ocean view rooms left. I was told that we would be given a high floor so that we could at least enjoy the ocean view from our balcony. On our way to the room it became painfully obvious that we was not staying in three star hotel. Once in the room there was a musky smell, the care was dirty and wet. If you are looking for a quiet place, this is not it, because the air conditioner kicking on and off and the noice from people opening the sliding door to their balcony there was no piece and quite until about 2:00AM. No exaggeration, every two or three minutes someone was opening a sliding door which could be heard from our room with our door closed. The bed and pillows are extremly uncomfortable. Will never stay at this Holiday Inn again. Don't be fooled from the photos on the internet.

Celebrated our 50th anniversary here last weekend. We have been staying here in Sept for years. Got the top floor ocean front room. We realize this is an older hotel, but found it to be clean, peaceful and always appreciate the friendly folks who take care of us. Will be back next year. Thank you Holiday Inn...

I say bring snacks, because you will have the munchies your entire stay. The elevator, hallways, front desk, room, and balcony reaked of marijuana everyday. I'm pretty sure it is still illegal in Md, and I highly doubt that many people have a prescription. The room smelled like a musty damp basement right after a big fat doobie got smoked. The kitchen and bathroom were dated, and need some love. I work in an urban area that reaks of marijuana daily. I go to the beach to get away from that. What you charge for a room under these conditions is a crime. Folks dont do it, book elsewhere unless your good with secondhand marijuana. Maybe you should change the name to The Stoner Inn, charge those outrageous rates and get that group all in the same building. Now that would be a party.

4th time visiting Ocean City, this hotel is definitely a little bit far from the boardwalk. Great views great outdoor pool swim up a little bar. Indoor pool as well, open until midnight. Room was clean full-size fridge, private balcony, nothing super extravagant but definitely satisfied with my stay would go again. House keeping were veryyyy nice, we stayed in room #321 second week in sept. They don’t come in your room each day to clean but they do leave a list to ck off what you need each day and they didn’t miss a beat. Italian restaurant attached to hotel it was ok pizza was def pretty good.

My Family & i came down on a whim for my Mom's Birthday. We stayed 4 wonderful nights in COVID! The place is somewhat outdated, the service was amazing, we didn't really need much, but just informative and accommodating. The rooms on the 7th floor have an entire kitchen, which we weren't expecting, full fridge and microwave! We had an amazing time & stay. Even after i read negative reviews before the stay, i am glad i didn't listen to those reviews. We will definitely be back. Even the restaurant at the hotel was good Tour of Italy. Ocean City is a hard place to find a restaurant without waiting hours! Great vacay, thank you Holiday Inn! In COVID i brought my own cleaning supplies too as you can see.
