We stayed for just one night 4/14 and everyone we encountered was extremely friendly and helpful. From the 5th floor housekeeping ladies to the breakfast room staff everyone was super welcoming. The front desk agent and front office manager went above and beyond to help us make the most of our short time there. We were able to check in...

Hotel was perfect for our needs. Good location that was very walkable, including a less than 5 minute walk to the beach. Hotel staff was very friendly. Room was clean and had a keurig, microwave, and fridge. We were on the 5th floor and had a view of the ocean, which was awesome for the sunrise. The breakfast in the...

This hotel is north, 127th St. It is quiet and clean, big free parking and easy access to the beach. You walk 2 blocks across the street. Good option if you're on a budget. Would use again in the future. Obviously if you are carrying lots of stuff to the beach, bring a little wagon because you can get tired...

Room was great. Breakfast was not as good quality as most Holiday Inn Expresses. The waffle machine was broke. They were always out of eggs or sausage. My room was next to a room with very loud children. I asked if I could change rooms and they said ok. On check out they gave me a fair increase for that...

The hotel was very clean. The rooms were nice and clean and comfortable, I was impressed by how clean the rooms were. The beds were comfortable, not overly plush but I am picky when it comes to that, but comfortable all the same. The hotel staff was friendly and very helpful. Breakfast in the morning was a large selection and...

Recently stayed for one night prior to a fishing trip . Upon arrival the woman at front desk was very friendly and the check in process was smooth . The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. Nothing special but was fine for what I needed.

My wife and I have been staying at the Holiday Inn Express every time we've been in Ocean City, for many years. Almost from the time it first opened. And we have always enjoyed it. Clean, quiet, reasonably priced, as it pretty much remains today. One of the first criteria for us when we travel, is that the hotel have...

Nice hotel. Not on the beach but a very small stroll. Close to nice places to eat and also a shopping center. Located on the quite side of the beach meaning not close to boardwalk. If you are looking to be on the boardwalk then its 15 minutes ride. Northside park behind the hotel is very nice for walk and...
