This is a hotel in need of updating. Rundown and old feeling. Lobby is odd and unwelcoming.Not like the pictures online. No view of ocean when I had requested one at booking. When I complained they blamed Hotels.com for not communicating that. (I have a copy of my initial reservation that shows I was getting ocean view. I'll never stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Went for an Ocean Downs casino night...won enough to do Ruth Chris nearby... So location, location, location... Only complaint about HI was the stained carpet in the room...Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great weekend getawy"
We have stayed at this hotel many times and will stay here again. There is a full size stove and refrigerator in every room, two hot tubs and an indoor pool. The hotel itself has always been clean and the staff has always been friendly. We have stayed in many other hotels in Ocean City and this is one of the best. It's right on the beach and close to […] an indoor mini golf course and a bowling alley which was nice seeing it was cold, windy and rainy when we were there this time.

This trip was a weekend get away from my wife and I. Fortionately we are not very picky however the room was a little disappointing because it smelled like an old shoe. The room was on the second floor which barely cleared the treetops an occasion when you would see a wave it was big enough. NOT the ocean front room that I had expected. Overall I would […] rate the room experience as it D D+. I would not recommend this hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Best Time Ever !!!"
This was truly one of the best hotel stays that I have had in my life. The staff was friendly...quite frankly I am speechless as to how nice they were. I would like to take a minute to say "Thank You" to all of the nice employees at the Holiday Inn that made my trip so unique and special. I will definitely stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very nice hotel but needs a serious upgrade"
Heat is not working. The room front door need to be fixed. The wallpaper needs to be replaced.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Will Not Return"
The woman working the desk was very courteous and helpful. The beds were reasonably comfortable, the room was mostly clean, but the room was outdated and in need of basic repairs. There was chipping paint on the ceiling, the bathroom door did not shut properly, the extra safety lock on the front door did not work properly, and the bathroom fan was very […] noisy. There was also a clear plastic cup on the porch that was filled with cigarette butts. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"A five-star hotel by any measure!!!"
To be honest, I was a bit concerned when I saw that this property has only three of five stars, but Holiday Inn Ocean City was simply amazing!!! We had an ocean view room (southern exposure). The room featured a private balcony with sliding glass door. The balcony had a glass table and two comfortable chairs. The room was climate-controlled and had, […] in addition to heat and air-conditioning, an electric fireplace that was attractive and functional. The king-size bed was super-comfortable, as was the sofa and chairs. The kitchen area (!!!! totally unexpected but there is was !!!) had a full-size stove with oven, a large refrigerator, a microwave, a dishwasher and cookware as well as dishes and cutlery. The view was spectacular! And the staff were professional, helpful and friendly! This hotel deserves 5 stars without question!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The room was very clean, spacious and didn't have that funky musty hotel smell. The only downside was not being able to leave the balcony screen door open. We had a non smoking room, but the cigarette smell wafted in from other vacationers smoking on their balconies. I would definitely book here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good room and housekeeping but rude front desk"
Paid for this room in advance through hotels.com but front desk froze $25 on my card for incidentals without my knowledge. When I found out, they said they corrected and refunded, but that is still not true, two days later. The room was fine, great ocean view and the housekeeping staff is great. They should promote the housekeeping staff and change […] the front desk staff. Overall the room is at least a 4, but the front desk experience makes it a 3. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Typical beach hotel"
We were very pleased with the ocean front view. We were surprised at the expedient manner in which the staff responded when we arrived and found the hall lights outside our room were not working ... staff responded immediately. The room is typical beach accommodations with the resulting wear from sand and water.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
A beautiful spotlessly clean hotel. The most comfortable bed and pillows i have ever slept on. An ocean front view that was breathtaking. On rainy days we enjoyed the workout room, and an indoor pool that was sparkling clean. check in was easy and hostess friendly. Some of house keeping staff (a large man in particular) was not only rude and did not […] acknowledge hello but became angry when I had to step on his wet floor. The housekeeper for our room was accomdating and friendly. The restauraunt "A touch of Italy" is probably one of the most authentically Italian restaurants in OC. The menu has a wide variety of wonderful dishes, veal, lamb, homemade pastas, served in the style of Northern Italy. All in all a great experience Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great- ocean view not included with Expedia deals"
Asked for a king through out booking and got two full beds- not exactly great for a weekend getaway with the wife. Hotel was OK otherwise- great location and amenities are sufficient.Genuine Expedia guest review
Did not know about "Cruiser" Weekend event! Then it rained all weekend. Left one night early and when I asked for a credit Christine at the front desk said "NO"! Not "sorry no" or "why?" Very disappointing. I would have returned this coming weekend if offered the 1 night I already paid for! Italian restaurant was wonderful. Great service and food.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The woman checking me in was rude and quite short-tempered. She was rather abrupt and unfriendly. Accomodations were fine, the Holiday Inn i stayed at in Baltimore later in tbe week was far superior abd staff extremely friendly, it made the Ocean City HOLIDAY INN feek like a Motel 6 in comparison.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great first experience with this hotel."
Fantastic--first time at this hotel and will definitely be back. Hotel staff including front desk, housekeeping and groundskeepers were all friendly and helpful. Room was comfortable, clean and beds were great.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Everything was wonderful!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great place to stay in Ocean City, MD"
October 2-5, 2014 The hotel has a central location. A walk over the dunes to the beach. Nice room, balcony, kitchen, frig, micro wave, safe, king size bed. There are two hot tubs and an indoor pool and outdoor pool. My wife and I enjoyed our stay and would stay there again and recommend it to our friends.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Funky but close to beach"
the front desk wasn't friendly or nice I could get past that but when I got in the bed that was the main disappointment.. when I lay down the foot of the mattress was higher then the head of the mattress and it was stinch that you smell immediately when you lay down.. this made me very uncomfortable.. couldn't wait to leave after that.. my kids wouldn't […] even sit on the sofa.. Funky.. worse then butt smell. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Ocean City Mini-vacation"
I set up my reservation on an on-line website. I went to the wrong holiday inn, which was very elegant. The staff called to the other holiday inn, about 6 miles away. When we arrived to the reserved hotel, a staff member asked if I was with another group. It was clear by the demographics that I was not. I jokingly said yes. She then ignored me. The […] front desk staff needs re-training on handling customer that are frazzled and stressed from their travels. She did not adequately answer my questions and I felt unease with the sub-pair handling of my check-in. I asked if there was available beach view, at which time she informed me if I prpe-paided I could not get a beach view.If the room had not been pre-paid, I would have left and stayed elsewhere. There were many vacancies available due to the post summer time frame. Regardless of the poor front desk handling of our arrival-the room exceeded expectations. The hotel offered eating, indoor swimming/jacuzzi,mini-kitchens, and beach access. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"End of Summer Getaway"
Ocean City was a nice getaway for us that was roughly 10 hours away. The beach was very nice and not so crowded at this time of year. The ocean was very rough during the afternoon hours with lifeguard restrictions due to the rip current. We drove a few miles to the boardwalk attractions in the evenings, but had the option of taking the bus at a reasonable […] price. I believe many of the folks from our hotel opted for the bus. This was our second visit to Ocean City. The first being over 30 years ago. We found the city to be clean and felt safe during our stay at the Holiday Inn. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Need new beds ,otherwise nice place very clean and nice friendly staffGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We vacationed with a toddler for a few days and the hotels was perfect for families. There is an indoor pool and outdoor pool. An arcade and direct beach access. The view is beautiful. Will definitely stay here again! Highly recommend.Genuine Expedia guest review
Nice ocean views even from a lower floor (3rd). Only one comfortable chair in the room. The couch was horrible to sit on to read or watch the TV. The bed was not very comfortable to sleep in and the AC was not strong enough to cool the room enough.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great great location"
Loved the view of the ocean from our balcony. We were able to walk the beach all the way to the board walk. Took a bus back howeverGenuine Expedia guest review
resturants in facility were great. view was nice.Genuine Expedia guest review
Clean room with lots of amenities. Enjoyed the pool and hot tub. Very happy with free breakfasts and a hot buffet vs a continental breakfast. Pleasant staff.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice but pricy"
In house restaurant was top notch Italian. Hotel was average, bed and pillows where terrible. Not what I would of expected for the price paid.Genuine Expedia guest review
Booked through Expedia with the request for a beach front view which my itinerary said I had and when I arrived I was on the first floor facing north looking at a building right across the street and the hotel said I couldn't upgrade because I went through Expedia! I won't do that ever again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"All in one"
Good location and has restaurant, bar, pool, beach all right there. Pool can get a little rowdy if you have children but overall not a big problem. Staff was very nice.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We were told breakfast was included and they told us it was not and found out all too late as they gave us our gift cards the night we were leaving so this was very bad and cost us far more than what we would have spentGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good for adults. Not kids."
Room was clean but carpet was old. The outdoor pool was always packed with drunk adults. Not a good place for kids. Back exit to beach was stairs only. Arcade was old and broken. Gym was not a gym. Few weights and a crappy universal machine. Not enough handicap parking. They made to arrangements to help.Genuine Expedia guest review
The room on the first floor facing the ocean (but the view was blocked by the sand dunes that was the only negative part) was just exactly what we needed. My toddler could just get down from the patio to the sand area and play while we stayed on the patio enjoying. Great services. Clean roomGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Stay at Ocean City"
While hotel is older and could use a little upgrade, it is a very nice property with everything to make your visit to the Ocean City beach a great time. Hotel is lacking nothing including large clean room & bath, game room for kids, pool w/ bar and food, plenty of chairs and only a few steps from a great stretch of OC beach. The best kept secret is […] restuarant on the property, Touch of Italy. I've eaten Italian food everywhere including Italy and this food ranks up there as the best even if a little higher in price range than some may like but well worth the price making this Holiday Inn a Great place to stay. And you can purchase many foods & deserts to take to your room for later or breakfast? Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
