We normally stay at our daughters house but with siblings and Grand children coming from afar it made sense to stay close and give the kids room to play, our week at the Harris House was more than satisfactory, very clean( our housekeeper Katrina did a great job), very friendly( staff from desk to service). We had a room on the 12th street side, (quieter, away from parking lot, but also away from pool), the right location at the right price. it was a plus that we could do midweek to midweek.

Room Tip: interior rooms face parking lot and pool, 12th st. rooms face, (wait for it), 12th st. which has boa...

Very clean, very friendly and helpful staff, next to boardwalk and good price. This is not a five star hotel, but it's a great location at a good price. We had a problem with out AC unit and a staff member was at our room within minutes - literally less than 5 minutes. Pool was nice, parking was good, and could use pool/shower prior to check in. Would absolutely stay again.

Booked this place for the weekend for a much needed shore getaway. Very clean and less than a block from boardwalk and Mack n Mancos is right there as well as beach access and public bathrooms. This place is way nicer than the ocean front hotel....that is unless you enjoy bright blue astroturf on all the walkways ;-)

This was my second visit to Ocean City. I stayed elsewhere the first time but went to see the Harris house while there. I liked what I saw and decided to go there for my family summer trip. Had a great time. Rooms were very clean. The entire staff from reservations, front desk and housekeeping were accommodating and friendly. We had four rooms and they were able to get us close together. I would definitely return there.

My family and I visited Ocean City NJ a few years ago and I remembered seeing the Harris House when we visited. It looked clean and neat. We had a great experience this past week. Great pool, clean rooms, friendly staff, plus it is so close to beach. Hotel is right off boardwalk. Would highly recommend!

Our family has been coming here for several years for long weekends in September. The staff has always been very friendly and accommodating, allowing us to check in early and use the facilities and pool after checkout time. Very convenient location, especially if you have young kids who like Castaway Cove & Wonderland Pier. Prices are very reasonable. Not fancy and could use some updating, but still kept clean and well maintained. Free coffee in the lobby.

Room Tip: Call early and book a primo location (ie. close to pool.). No elevator.

So glad to have you and your family as repeat customers each year! We appreciate the compliments, in particular your praising of the cleanliness, which is our mantra. The housekeeping staff works extra hard and each room is subject to our double-check system, wherein the head housekeeper reviews the room a second time before any guest checks in. We look forward to providing you a great vacation getaway spot for many years to come! -- The Harris House Staff

Stayed here for almost a week. Loved the daily cleaning service. Last year rented a condo and I never will again. Harris House is my favorite. Clean, good price, and great location. Kids loved the pool. We will be back!

We're very happy to hear you enjoyed your stay, and especially that the kids loved the pool -- "the biggest in Ocean City", but who are we to brag? : ) For stays of 5 or more nights, be sure to check out our mini-week specials for even more competitive rates. Hope to have you back again, and thank you for the positive words! -- The Harris House Staff
