We have stayed in this hotel for several years now. It is really close to the beach and boardwalk. It is also an easy walk or bike ride to several restaurants and shopping areas. The rooms are really clean and maintained well. Each room has a microwave and small refrigerator. We had two rooms on the 12th Street side this... More

Just back from a mid-July stay at the Harris House Motel. A few years back, I reviewed this motel, and as I stated then, it is an average Jersey Shore motel but with great proximity to the boardwalk and beach. A few other positives worth considering follow. • It is kept very clean—the staff can often be seen sweeping the... More

We have been staying with the Harris House for several years. I'm a power chair user and travel with a Hoyer lift and shower chair. Usually, we couldn't get our lift under the bed. This year, they put a different frame on the bed to accommodate the lift. The staff came into the room and asked if we needed any... More

It was our first time going to Ocean City, for a quick getaway. We loved Harris House rooms were spotless, new bedding, new carpets. Pool was big with ample lounge chairs & they even lend you towels. Cleaning staff did a great job cleaning our room & providing extra blanket & pillow. Front desk staff, especially Mike was extremely nice,... More

This was our 3rd time staying at this hotel. They really keep the hotel clean and well maintained. We love being so close to the boardwalk and the beach. The pool was very nice also. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. We loved it so much we are considering coming back before the end of the season.

We really enjoyed our stay here! We were approximately a 30 second walk to the beach. Everything was nearby! Staff did an excellent job of cleaning our room daily! Outdoor pool was a huge plus. Only reason we didn't rate it 5 stars was because it was a little dated! Price was very reasonable and we would definitely stay there... More

Just leaving the motel. We stayed this weekend and the weekend prior. I love the location- walking distance to the beach and the boards. And the friendliest front desk personnel you will ever meet. Pool is great. We have always had a first floor room and have never had problems hearing people above like at other places we have been... More

We took a quick 2 day getaway to Ocean City in the middle of high season, and this place was perfect! Its only half a block from the boardwalk, the rooms were clean and fresh and the staff was friendly and accommodating. This was our second stay, and we'll definitely be back again.

Thank you so much! The phrase "clean as a whistle" makes us all kinds of happy inside, since that is our A #1 top priority. Our housekeeping staff cleans and double-checks each room, so that rarely is anything overlooked. And the same holds true for the grounds and pool, as you mentioned, which are cared to by our maintenance staff,... More

We absolutely love coming here with our 2 young kids. It can't get any easier being this close to the boardwalk and having a pool. You can walk to the beach in 1 minute. And the hotel staff is so friendly and professional. We couldn't recommend it more! We travel with our 2 and 5 year old.

Thank you for the kind review, and for pointing out that you can walk from our property to the beach in less than 60 seconds. Our location has always been a very big attraction for our guests - we feel that if we provide clean, safe accommodations and superior customer service, the location speaks for itself. We are grateful you... More
