Holiday Inn Hotel & Suites Ocean City
Ranked #12 of 104 Hotels in Ocean City
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 2, 2012

My family of 4 stayed here over Memorial Day weekend. The last time we were in Ocean City we did not have a good experience so I was hesitant to come back. We enjoyed our stay this time around at the Holiday Inn and Suites. This hotel is located directly on the boardwalk. We had an ocean front suite with 2 queen beds and a pull out sofa bed. We had a private balcony that was furnished with a table and chairs. We had a full kitchen with dishwasher. It was nice to be able to make quick meals for breakfast and eat out on the balcony. The room was a little dated but very clean. The location is perfect. We parked our car and didn't drive for the rest of the weekend. There is a CVS within walking distance, but if you want groceries such as lunch meat and things of that nature, you should get them on the way in because there are no big grocery stores within walking distance. We were able to walk to the end of the boardwalk to ride the rides and play games every night. I'm guessing it was about 1.5 miles to the end of the boardwalk from this location. There is a tram car you can ride for $3 dollars each way/person if you don't want to walk. My little one loved the activity pool. It has a shallow entry so you just walk right in. It was heated so he didn't mind going in. There is a spa tub near the activity pool. You need to be 15 in order to use it. The other pool was not heated and was pretty chilly when we were there. You have to purchase your alcohol through the pool bar. They don't allow outside alcohol in. The pool hours were also a little strange. The activity pool closed at 6pm and the other pool closed at 8pm. The hotel gives you passes to get towels at the pool. If you hand in your towel you get the towel pass to use the next time. The indoor pool is next to a restaurant/bar. It was a little chilly also. The only downside to this property is the price.

Room Tip: Request a room on the 4th floor or higher for a complet unobstructed view of the ocean.

This hotel was a great choice for us! we like upscale clean hotels & we don't mind paying a little extra for piece of mind.we stayed on the 14th floor with a wonderful view of the entire boardwalk & the ocean.this,along with the ocean breeze were spectacular.the rooms were modern, very clean & a good size for the 3 of us.there were even enough towels for us.this is usually a problem at other hotels I have stayed at. The king bed was very comfortable, no back pains!& the pillows were labeled soft or firm.I like firm & my hubby likes soft.we ordered breakfast from room service & it was prompt, with friendly delivery service & we had no complaints.the kitchen was well stocked with plates, glasses, pots & pans & utensils.we were very happy with this hotel & we will definitely stay here again on our next trip to oc.

Ocean City isn't upscale so it's no surprise this hotel isn't either. But it met our needs. We traveled with our 2 year old daughter and it was a fine stay.
The front desk staff isn't rude but they are not helpful or accommodating in any way. We should have been given a brief rundown of hotel amenities(like parking) but it was sort of "here are your keys. Bye" type of attitude. Being a former hotel manager,I prefer uniforms for employees (except management) and some standard of professionalism. Although the front desk staff looked fine, i prefer uniformity so you recognize them as staff. The restaurant staff & maintenance did wear matching shirts but looked sloppy from the waist down, just
unprofessional in my opinion. We ate breakfast in the restaurant each day and it was pretty
good. Some of the staff was great, others lacked service.
The room was fine. Yes, some things were dated or needs attention (I.e. Pealing wallpaper) but overall good. The view is wonderful, bed & linens were as good as any, ample size living & kitchen, very much met our needs. The whirlpool tub needs to go. My toddler is scared of the shower and it was hard to bath& wash her hair in the whirlpool tub. And it's just dated& tacky in my opinion. The bathroom was large with ample amenities. The air conditioner could have been colder, especially since we went early in the season. Hate to think how hot it would be in mis summer.
Overall we had a good stay. Happy hour prices were great! If we were to return to Ocean City, which I doubt, I would stay here. Ocean City was a close place for us to drive our toddler to this year...which is why we chose it. We had a good time but will not choose Ocean City in the future.

Room Tip: Ocean view rooms around 8-12 are best on any floor.

Stayed there Memorial Day weekend. The ocean view from the balcony was perfect and the rates were fair. The layout of the suite could not have been better - living room area, full-size kitchen, large bedroom w/king size bed and a Jacuzzi tub, great shower, 2 large flat screen TV's and free Wi-Fi. We had no problems finding a parking spot in the garage - which was a huge plus!.
I was surprised at the furnishings - they were a bit pedestrian. They served the purpose, but sort of reminded me of college dorm furniture.
And for a non-smoking hotel, the cigarette smoke that wafted through the air conditioning was overpowering.
An okay stay.

When this hotel first opened we started staying there and were immediately impressed by the staff as well as the facility itself. There is plenty of parking no matter what time of year you stay. The rooms are as clean and well appointed today as they were the day they opened for business. The have a great restaurant that is open late for dinner every evening that serves consistently great food. The staff of the hotel seems to remember you from stay to stay which is a neat trick considering the number of people they deal with daily. And the cleaning staff is always willing to let you sleep in without disturbing you and then sneaks in when you are gone to work their magic on your room. For us, it is the only place to stay in OC Maryland!

Room Tip: You might want to get a corner room....the showers are just a bit bigger.

We were there in low season -- early April -- so I don't know what the summer rates might be, but it was perfect for me,(the dad) and three high school juniors on spring break. Right on the boardwalk and convenient to everything in OC. The ocean view from the 12th floor was great and the full size kitchen was perfect. Kitchen was well furnished with pots, pans, plates, silverware, etc. Even had a dishwasher! The outdoor pools weren't open when we were there, but it looks like it would be a great place for a family with small children, too.

We try to stay at this location at least once a year. The staff is very helpful and met all of our needs. They also upgraded us to oceanfront.

Room Tip: Our room had a jacuzzi, a very nice touch!
