“Pleasant one day stay”
Reviewed October 18, 2010

We had a larger than normal group so we had to squeeze in on the two beds in order to fit. It was an ok stay. We didn't really stay very long as we were out most of the time. We just wanted a place to stay in overnight and have somewhere where we can shower and clean up after being in the beach. The beds were comfortable and big enough for three people to sleep on. Everything was clean. It is a good place to stay if you're just looking for somewhere to crash after a day on the beach.

The second we walked into the lobby I knew it was a mistake!!!!! THE SMELL OF MILDEW was overpowering,,,,, we got to our room old very dated smelly...... The veiw was ok but the noise was annoying ,ppl lettin their kids scream off the balcony just not what I was looking for. I thought we could listen to the ocean noises not ppl yelling and kids screaming....we had to close our door to block out the noise...The kitchen not enough stuff to cook with no silverware drawer it was in the cabinet.. When WE GOT HOME WE HAD TO WASH EVERYTHING IT SMELLED!!!!! We called for towels and have our trash picked up so we could leave it took them an hour to come up...They said I will send them up right away NOT TRUE I worked in hotels all my life and this was quite an experience....So you read this and see if you want to stay.....

Excellent accommodations, affordably priced, very clean and well laid out. This hotel offers the best of the best when it comes to being comfortable at the beach. 2 Great restaurants, a pool bar, snack bar at the pool too! Have a nice tropical drink while lounging in the outdoor pool... and while the kids are in the children's pool.... or, go inside to the indoor pool and jacuzzi. Also, it wouldn't be the beach if you didn't go and relax on the very clean semi-private beach they have to offer. Also, there is a fitness center, business center, game room and a conference center for larger business groups. They do take part in Holiday Inn's Priority Club, so you can use the points you've collected at this hotel, and of course, add some!!!!

We came here the day after Labor Day for 3 nights to celebrate our Anniversary. Since we planned to go to our favorite restaurant (Reflections), I thought we would just stay at the Holiday Inn. Our room, #709, had a south ocean view because it was cheaper than a full ocean view but it turned out better than we expected. In the morning, when we had our coffee out on the veranda along with the newspaper, which was delivered to our room every morning, we did not have the sun in our eyes as did the ones with a full ocean view. We overlooked the tennis court, swimming pool and the ocean. Our room was large with a king size bed, electric fireplace, sofa bed, and in the kitchen, we had a full size refrigerator, stove, microwave, dishwasher, toaster and even an electric can opener along with the dishes, etc. Although they were a little outdated, it was great to be able to eat your left-over dinner the next day and it did not have to only be microwaved.

I thought that our room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was a little on the small side but our bedroom/living room area was very large.

The hotel had everything you could possible need -- 2 restaurants inside (1 casual and 1 top quality), a place at the pool to get a burger, etc., a swim-up bar, hammocks to lay in at the pool and plenty of lounge chairs and plenty of parking. We enjoyed talking to Yovar who is the bartender in the inside bar, which is very nice.

You might be able to go to The Hilton or the other Holiday Inn and get a more updated kitchen but you won't get it for $147 a night, which is what we paid.

I would definitely go back there to stay.

Ocean City was wonderful, but this hotel was the pits. First, their web site (from the description to the picture) is totally misleading. The only true picture was the color of the hotel and the look of the lobby. It was the ONLY thing updated. It does not take much to please myself and the others in my party. Usually give us a clean room and a bed and we are okay. This hotel was anything but.... The balcony was filthy (sand and dirt all over the table and chairs), there was mold in the bathroom tub, food on the carpeted floor, broken ice bucket and ice cube tray, there was no safe in the room and the "safe deposit boxes" were not private at all, the pool was filthy, the sand under the swings was littered with cigarette butts and cups, the indoor pool was dirty, smelled musty, was cold and the surface around the pool was uneven and if you were not careful you could trip and fall. It was just so disappointing for a Holiday Inn. It is not the experience we thought we would have at all. Really investigate the hotels before booking... we learned our lesson for sure. I would go back to Ocean City MD in a heartbeat, but I will NEVER stay at this Holiday Inn again.

Don't listen to the reviews that said this place was dirty! Our room was very clean and we were all pleased with our stay. Our only complaint was with the pool. It was a little small and on a Saturday became very crowded with the swim up pool bar. The picture of the pool was a little misleading but the rooms are much nicer than they appear. Overall, a nice place to stay and to relax,.
