Love Ocean City and this is one of the best places to stay Clean and comfortable.Indoor pool was well maintained without the usual chlorine smell. Enjoyed our weekend stay and will certainly consider for a more extended stay next summer.

Great location, easy to get in and out. Great beach, pool, pool bar, hammocks on the sand. I believe all rooms have ocean view. My pics are from room 216! The Italian restaurant and pool bar go above and beyond!!

A very reasonable beach location, it is about 200 metres from the ocean. Basic accommodation, great for short stays. This is a very popular part of the long beach-side suburb, surrounded by apartment buildings.

Pros - Free Breakfast- average selection (can be improved if they add variety of options like bacon) - I would also like to complement the staff member- she is an older age lady, I forgot her name. She was very nice and she makes sure everything you need is met. - Free parking -

You can never really underestimate the power of free breakfast! Take the cost of each person off the total price and its a sure budget. Waffles! Or you can make a breakfast sandwich! We had a pretty bad time at another Ocean City hotel, and were very happy to hear the Holiday

Does this hotel have rooms for families with 5 adults and 3 children?
I doubt it. Please call the front desk (not the reservations number). They are really nice there.

If I remember correctly it has an indoor and outdoor pool. They are side by side, one just is encased. I can't say anything about the hot tub as we didn't use the outside pool so I can't remember if they have one or not. You can give them a call and ask. For us with a toddler and a slightly older child the walk was fine. Basically you cross the parking lot and there is the street light to cross the big busy avenue. Then about 2 blocks of condos and then cross the sand until you're where you want to set up on the beach. Check it on google maps, street view or satellite!
