I booked a last minute trip for a few nights in September. Reservations were very easy to make and the price was reasonable. The motel is in a great and convenient location, my room was clean and the staff was very friendly. I had a wonderful time and will definitely return.

I went to ocean city NJ last week for a Lucinda Williams concert. The motel was easy to get to and very well located. The room was very clean and adequate space for two friends to share. The amazing thing to me was the next day they called me because I had left my metro card ( the senior card... More

Hi -Thank you so much for the kind words about our staff, and also for mentioning the cleanliness of the rooms!

I rarely write a review while I'm still utilizing the service, but this is an exception. From the first contact with the hotel, I've been impressed. The booking process was easy with an email to the hotel to get the best rate. I was visiting the area for work, and it necessitate several items being mailed to me in advance.... More

Great location! Very clean room. Excellant staff. My daughter wanted to stay on the board walk in the action and this hotel is just behind the stores on the board walk.

Great location- one block to boardwalk and beach @ 12th St. Public restrooms and shower/foot rinse at beach access. This is a good solid 3 star place at the shore. It's not fancy but it's well located. Extremely clean, offers free on site parking and free beach tags for use during your stay. It's a "shore motel," meaning it's older,... More

I was pleasantly surprised with Harris House and would definitely stay again! Perfect for my 2 teen sons and me. When we arrived at 1:30 p.m., I asked if I could park in the parking lot. Front desk staff said, "Absolutely. And we can check you in if you like; although, I can't promise that your room will be ready,... More

Rooms are perfect size with a little table and microwave. Bathroom is small, but good enough for those not wishing to live in your room. Room was clean and AC cool! Very close to beach, boardwalk right next door. Walk everywhere. Pool is warm and inviting after day at beach. Pool would be great if there were lights at night.
