They do not greet anyone and I am as IHG Spire elite member did not receive any welcome gift or comp drinks during check in procedure. One wow factor...

This is the 2nd time that we have stayed at this Holiday Inn Express Ocean City. The location is only 2 short blocks to the beach and very convenient to shopping and restaurants. There was also a bike rental place only 2 blocks away on the ocean side. We could therefore ride through many of the back streets where there...

Great location. Cross the street is the beach. Back of the hotel is a nice park. Our room is quiet and clean. But it is also damp just like other reviewers mentioned. You really need to lower the temperature setting to get some of the moisture out. Maybe they are using the wrong type of air conditioning. It appears they...

What I will remember about my time at this Holiday Inn is the friendliness of the front desk staff especially the Manager Keisha. Keisha is a credit to the facility, extremely friendly and highly professional. This hotel is right across from the Northside Park which is a beautiful park.

On the plus side, I requested a quiet room and was given a bay view room. The staff were friendly and attentive. The location wasn't bad: the beach at 127th street was clean and not overlooked by huge condos. The bus stop was right out front. On the negative, there was thick dust on the top of the headboards. We...
