My boyfriend and I stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in Ocean city last weekend and had a pretty good experience. The staff was super nice from the moment we checked in to the moment we left. The cleaning staff was also friendly when we saw them in bf he hallway. The only complaint I have is that there was... More

On the plus side, I requested a quiet room and was given a bay view room. The staff were friendly and attentive. The location wasn't bad: the beach at 127th street was clean and not overlooked by huge condos. The bus stop was right out front. On the negative, there was thick dust on the top of the headboards. We... More

My girlfriend and I recently stayed here for three days. We liked it! The price was very reasonable, the staff were attentive and kind, and it was a very clean hotel. We had a nice view of the park and bay outside our 3rd floor window. We were able to pick up on an odd scent when walking into our... More

We were staying only for 2 nights and booked and extended room bayside. The first night I took a shower, I slid and fell into shower because it had not been rinsed off before our stay.

This hotel is in a great location and it's very clean and comfortable at a great rate for OC. Breakfast is included and the food is really good and there are plenty of options. The staff is friendly and helpful. You can't go wrong staying here.

I love Northside Park on the bay in Ocean City, MD. It is NOT like the busy boardwalk area and not noisy. I travel to OC 2 or 3 times a year and I always make a point of going to this park at least one of the evenings to take a walk and watch the sun set out on... More

Had the pleasure of staying here for 4 nights recently and I must say the staff is wonderful, helpful and outgoing. This hotel has an indoor and outdoor pool that are both a nice size. While this hotel is not on the beach, it's just across the six lane roadway from the beach so it's only 1 block away. I... More

The staff was polite and went the extra mile to take care of our family and a fax some business paperwork for me. Initially, we were told that early check-in was not available but right as we were walking out we were told we could check-in. The room smelled fresh, and was clean and updated.

The hotel is very clean and housekeeping did a nice job everyday. Free continental breakfast was decent every morning. The WiFi is slow which is something the hotel should improve. Other than that this hotel is great for the price! It is only a 15 minute drive to the boardwalk. Will consider staying here again in the future.
