“Very Nice Stay”
Reviewed 7 January 2014

We stayed at this hotel over New Years in order to take advantage of it's close proximity to the Winterfest of Lights and the New Years Eve Fireworks at Northside Park in Ocean City. It's awesome because the Park is directly behind the hotel.

The hotel itself is very clean but a bid dated. The furniture and décor looks like it's from 1999, but it's spotless and that's what really counts. It was decorated for Christmas while we were there which was great. Also (and I can't stress this enough), everyone in the hotel was super nice. The front desk staff, the cleaning staff, the maintenance people, the breakfast people, they all said hello, how are you, have a nice day, etc. I thought I was on a cruise ship for a second.

I'd definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: If you're staying over New Years Eve, get a room on the backside of the hotel and you can see th...

This hotel was nice! We were here for the Extreme Cheer & Dance Competition from Norfolk/Portsmouth VA and walking thru the door seeing the Christmas decorations was warming and heart felt!!! It was beautiful! Check in and check out was fast and pleasant. The room was rather small but the view from 409 was breathtaking !!! The winterfest was open and from our room the Christmas lights were beautiful and the sunrise was too! Free parking, free wifi , and free breakfast!!!! The women in the dining area were AWESOME!!!! They were friendly, helpful and had smiles that made you feel right at home!!! No fitness room but walk trail behind the building and no revolving door but overall LOVED MY STAY!!!

Poor service at check in. I think I irritated the front desk with questions. No fitness room, really?
Worn flat pillows. You get what you pay for. Highly recommend staying at ocean front holiday inn down the street

We stayed here on our honeymoon and so happy about it! We booked a suite and the extra space was very nice. The staff was so friendly and accommodating, the hot breakfast every morning was amazing and offered everything you could want, and the location was perfect for us. We don't like a lot of hustle and bustle, so this being a few miles north of the chaotic boardwalk was ideal. It was a short walk to the beach, and the beautiful park and pier behind the hotel offered beautiful sights on our nightly walks. Can't wait until we can get back here again!

We are Platinum HI members, but first time to this HI Express. Very clean and comfortable and rates were reasonable. Good location at north end of Town adjacent to Northside Park. Staff was very friendly and accommodating, and you could always count on a hearty "Good Morning!" at the included breakfast each morning. Recommend renting bikes from PMI Rentals right next to hotel and tour the park and nearby Montego Bay community!

Room Tip: Ask for rear facing room on higher floor to enjoy Bay views!

We recently stayed here and I would recommend this hotel to anyone. One of the best breakfasts offered by a hotel I have ever had. Eggs, bacon/ham/sausage, pancakes, and more to choose from. The coffee was very good and the previous reviews were correct, the cinnamon rolls are awesome. Our room was clean, plenty of towels, the beds were comfortable. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We had a room on the 3rd floor bayside, the view overlooked the pool and North park, we could also see the bay. it was nice. I would stay here again and would tell family about it as well.

Room Tip: If choosing to use the beach bus while there, the stop is right out front.

The hotel was nice, clean, and comfortable. It's a block away from the ocean. They could use some automatic doors from the parking lot, and more luggage carts. Had to wait 15 minutes for a cart when we checked in, only to find an employee using one to stock supplies in the kitchen area. This and all hotels in the area are obscenely overpriced. Lots to do in the area, but my advice when dining out is to take the 5 minute ride north from here across into Delaware, where there's no sales tax. It makes a difference.
