“What a gorgeous hotel, just steps from the beach”
Reviewed 24 June 2011

The Holiday Inn and Suites was a beautiful place to stay for our vacation in Ocean City. You literally walk out of the hotel, go down a flight of steps and you are on the boardwalk with the beach just a few feet farther. We stayed in a two-room suite with a full kitchen which was very luxurious. My husband and I had our privacy and the kids had everything they needed in the living room with a pullout couch. All the staff was very friendly and attentive.

The only complaint I had was about the housekeeping staff. For some reason our room was never cleaned when we came back in the afternoons. We were at the end of the hall and they must have been planning to clean our room last. Twice we had to call for them to come and clean in the late afternoon (3 pm or so) and once we just called for extra towels. We probably could have resolved the issue if we had talked to the front desk but we just kept expecting our room to be cleaned when we came back from the beach after lunch.

We were still very happy with our stay and would stay there again - just make sure we talked to housekeeping about when the room needed to be cleaned.

Our family stayed in an oceanfront room. It was very nice. Rooms were clean as were the pools. Great view. A little pricey but worth it in my opinion. Close to everything. Personnel was friendly and helpful.We were very pleased with our stay and would definitely stay here again.

This hotel for the price IS NOT WORTH IT.It's more money to stay than the Hilton? this is an average hotel,nothing spectacular.The rooms aren't as nice as they look .The bathroom looked nice but you had to be in their a long time to get the soap off and rinse the shampoo from your hair,the jucuzzi tub did not work.The beds were uncomfortabel,and so was the sofa in the living area.We could hear the people up stairs from us. the blackout drapes was not thick enoght on the sliding glass doors, the sun woke us up at 6:00a.m. every morning.The nice thing is the hotle is ocean front and on the board walk,and the pool area was nice.

We stayed here for our family vacation and it was the best time! We had 2 handicapped people with us and they were able to walk out of their room to the pool and beach. It was great! Grandma could watch the kids play on the beach from a shady spot by the pool! The kids loved the mini waterpark at the hotel! We have been to ocean city many times but this was the best! We are already planning our return trip for next year! We will stay longer!

Just spent 4 nights at the Holiday Inn in a suite. Our room was spacious, clean, and wonderful for our family of four. Only negative, was that we were on the 4th floor, near the street (not the ocean) so we got the noise from the hotel air conditioners beside our balcony, and the noise from the street (heavy, loud, traffic/horns/mufflers) whenever the ac units weren't running. We complained, but there were no other rooms available.

DEFINITELY request a high floor and ocean front. As nice as the ocean front would be, I'd hate to be on the first few floors there, since they over look the two pools, which were also incredibly noisy during our stay.

The pools were amazing. Two areas...one for adults, and one for kids. The kids pool had two slides (suitable for little ones) and a crazy whirlpool area that my tweens thought was great. We couldn't get them out until they were so tired they could hardly stand. Worked for us :)

Our immaculate suite included a wonderful king-sized bed, flat screen TV and DVD player in the bedroom, a queen sleeper sofa, Flat screen TV, VHS player, and table and 4 chairs in the "living room" and a full size fridge, oven, stove, microwave, toaster, dish washer, and coffee maker in the galley kitchen between the two rooms.

The bathroom included a whirlpool tub and rain shower head. It was great, but I can't imagine anyone with mobility challenges getting in and out of that shower (in the jacuzzi tub) without assistance. The sides of the jacuzzi/shower were very high.

Fresh fruit in the lobby daily :)

Overall, I think the best place to stay on the boardwalk...and perfect views of the Air Show from the pool and beach directly in front. Felt like VIPs!

Room Tip: Request a high floor, ocean front

The suite was big, with a separate kitchen and living room, and a big tub with a rainfall shower. Check-in went smooth, and we got free parking very close to the hotel. Location is great right on the Boardwalk. Pools were nice (one sort of kiddie pool, separated from a more adult pool). Although our suite was on the first floor and just steps from Reception, it was very quiet.

We got an excellent deal through Expedia unpublished rates -- only $104 (plus taxes and fees) per night. Because of that, we did not manage to get a suite with a view, but our suite had a very nice terrace (with table and chairs) that opened out on to the pool area. This could have been a problem had the pool been open late into the night, but it closed at 6 PM -- probably because it was Senior Week at OC and the hotel did not want a bunch of drunken high school kids in the pool area late at night. That worked out great for us.

Room Tip: Use Expedia unpublished rates

We spent four nights at the Holiday Inn Hotels & Suites during the first week of June 2011 and we could not have asked for more for our family trip. We had our five-year-old triplets in tow and they were thrilled with the kids' pool which, I must say, was fun for adults, too. The hotel itself was clean and staff were friendly. We used Priority Club points for our stay and had one of a few corner rooms without a direct ocean view but, frankly, spent much of the daylight hours outdoors and this made little difference for us. The room was spacious with separate living/dining area, a small kitchenette and nice bedroom with a great balcony. If there would be room for improvement, it would be two separate bedrooms vs two beds in a single area as there was no separation from the kids at bedtime. Wirelss internet access was fast and flawless. Room included two nice widescreen LG TVs with a DVD player in the living area. Housekeeping was prompt, friendly and thorough and the applicances and kitchenware helped us save $$$ on meals throughout the trip. The hotel sits right on the beach so all we had to do was descend a staircase to be on the sand. Parking was tight onsite but we always found a spot and there are two overflow lots across the street. I will always remeber those early family vacations from my childhood and I return from this one satisfied that this trip is a memory our kids will keep forever - and this great hotel was a large part of that experience.
