Reviewed 29 June 2014

The room is real clean and the pool is crystal clear. Steps from the boardwalk and the parking is great. My wife and I stay here often. We come down the shore to see the 9'th street concerts every year. And part of the fun is talking to Michael who works in the office. When we pull up and see his motorcycle parked there we know we are going to be treated like gold.

We come to Ocean City few times every summer, and if we stay for the weekend we know we will be staying at Harris House! Home away from home. Cannot beat the location, clean, comfortable rooms friendly staff. Simple no frills stay and that's what makes it affordable and attractive time after time. If you are looking for a perfect place to spend your beach vacation look no further! Thanks Harris house staff! We will be back at the end of the summer!

We had the pleasure of staying at Harris House Motel May 21, 22 and 23. We were extremely pleased with the cleanliness of our room, the shower was great and the beds were very comfortable. When I needed an extra blanket, it was on it's way to our room before I finished requesting it. The Boardwalk was a very short distance away which was very convenient. I would definitely recommend the Harris House Motel to anyone planning a vacation in Ocean City, NJ.

We stayed here for a wedding we attended, and couldn't have been happier, staff was extremely friendly, someone was always cleaning, great pool, centrally located steps from the Ocean City boardwalk..no frills, no elevator, so bear that in mind, but would certainly stay here again, very pleased

Room Tip: no elevators, no on-site restaurant, but mere steps from the Ocean City Boardwalk

I stayed here last august 4 one night. It had a very good location; it was right next to the boardwalk. The rooms were your average hotel room. It had 2 beds, 1 tv and a bathroom. It was pretty clean. The pool was nice and warm and the staff seemed courteous.

Had a fantastic end-of-season beach weekend! Harris House staff (especially Michael) was friendly and accommodating. Rooms were very clean & nicely sized. Furniture was all in great condition and the beds were nice and comfortable. And the location is perfect -- only steps away from the Boardwalk. Can't wait to go back!

I stayed at the Harris House this past weekend with my boyfriend. It is an average hotel but overall I did enjoy my stay. There were some things I didn't like but there were things I really did like!

PROS:
1. The location is perfect...steps away from the boardwalk and beach.
2. The pool is a pretty decent size, extremely clean, and never too crowded.
3. The rooms were a decent size and clean and the beds were pretty comfy.
4. The maid was helpful when I needed something.
5. The AC, refrigerator, and hair dryer were great.

CONS:
1. Throughout the night, the wall (I believe) made a constant tapping sound that made it hard to sleep. I'm not even sure where the sound was coming from but it was annoying.
2. Although the shower was warm with good pressure, the wall vibrated when I took a shower which was weird.
3. The walls were very thin and the neighboring residents screamed a lot so it wasn't very pleasant.

Thanks for the warm words! Making the most of your day is definitely important to us, and if we can accommodate early arrivals, we do. Our focus is clean rooms and friendly customer service, since the prime location speaks for itself. It always means a lot to us when we hear our guests were able to enjoy Ocean City, as we truly think it is the gem of the Jersey shore. Come back and see us again!
