We have been staying at Harris House for years - close to the beach, very friendly and helpful service, and family oriented. They are sensitive to the needs of their guests and make every attempt to keep their motel clean and quiet. On our most recent visit, we had the opportunity to meet and interact with Juanita (housekeeping services). She...

First of all, thank you for your continued patronage of the Harris House. It's guests like yourself and Michelle P. above, who come back year after year, that allow us to be a thriving business. As for your kind words about Juanita, we couldn't agree more -- she has been working with us forever and always manages to form close...

This was a great place to stay for the price. We stayed for a long weekend in June. The staff was very accommodating, even allowing us to keep our beach tags a couple extra hours on the last day since we experienced a rainy day the previous day. The room was a basic motel room with small fridge and microwave....

Great hotel right next to the boardwalk, conveniently located, no need for a car. Inside the room, very clean, comfortable beds, furniture a bit dated but still in good shape, and practical for the purposes of a beach visit. Sink is at the end of the room, so it's separated from the main toilet/shower, which is a big plus. Bathroom...

Hi Dale, Thanks so much for the 5 stars! It's nice to hear someone comment on the landscaping, we take a lot of pride in the flowers, lawns and garden beds that line the property all the way to the boardwalk and beach.One thing I would like to mention is that we actually do not allow pets in the Harris...

This was our first stay at Harris House. I found the hotel via Hotels.com. My boss lives in OC on the lagoon and we go into town every year for the Nights in Venice weekend. We have been staying at different places every year b/c we haven't found a place that has everything we want until now. Harris House is...

We have been going to Ocean City for the July 4th holiday the past few years. Each year we have stayed at the Harris House and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The hotel is nice and has a great pool. I enjoy the beach, but the pool allows another fun alternative. Also, the location can't be beat. It's right on the...

My Sister and my daughter and nieces have stayed in your facility for the past several summers. Everything is always wonderful. The staff is courteous and friendly and accommodating and the place is always clean and neat. I would recommend the Harris House to anybody. It's in a great location and is a wonderful place to stay.

If you keep in mine your 1/2 block from the beach & boardwalk, the cost of the room per night is easier to take. They allow you to park in the lot even before your room is ready and stay parked until about 3 after you check out. Very nice group of employees....big smiles from them all weekend.
