We stopped in Ocean City for a quiet restful night during our drive back from Florida and found this fantastic hotel. We were greeted by a friendly front desk employee who made checking in quick and easy and even asked us if we preferred a lower floor or higher floor. We got a 14th floor oceanfront room!😄The room was spacious , clean and quiet. Our stay was everything we had hoped for and I would highly recommend it to everyone I know.

Our stay was cut short by our disappointment in this hotel. Although 3-stars by rating, the room was low-class, with old and yellowed outlets, worn and damaged doors; it was not cleaned well (white residue on the floor, on the fixtures). It had a sad mood. As premier members of this hotel, and early arrivers that afternoon, we had hoped for an upgrade; we were told the hotel was sold out, but this was obviously not true, as the parking lot was half-empty that night. We had a view of the dingy hotel balconies next door, instead of the ocean -- with the hotel half-full. We were disoriented throughout in relation to hotel amenities: there was no welcome from the hotel staff or clue-in about restaurant services (was there a discount for those staying at the hotel? a menu for room-service?), the room was without any paperwork of any kind -- no TV guide, no local attractions, no room service, no map of the hotel for laundry, nothing of the kind. It was like we were "on our own!" in a 3-star hotel. Our room key didn't work EVERY time we went back to our suite (and no, we didn't put it by our phone or credit cards or key fob, as we were asked every time). It was also noisy in our room, with anyone in a room nearby suddenly "part of our conversation." The design of the front seating area, where the pull-out couch is, means that the whole rather room space is without carpet (presumably due to sand from the beach), which makes the room cacophonous and echoey, and everything said outside the door or in the room next door can be heard. The kitchen area was helpful, with its full-size refrigerator, although it is outfitted with cheap dish ware and utensils. And although it is a room for four people, there are only four chairs for the dining area. Needless to say, we were not so happy with the amenities or the room quality (or lack thereof), but it was the mood of the place that was the saddest: old and depressing. As we checked out halfway through our stay (and we were leaving because it was so disappointing), we were NOT asked how our stay had been. I am sorry for the staff if they are exhausted from the pandemic (so are we), but I had hoped for better service, and have been treated so much better at most IHG locations, this was an anomaly.

We really enjoyed our week at the Holiday Inn Suites! The location is great, right on the boardwalk. We really made good use of the kitchen and the sun rising over the ocean every morning made for an unbelievable view from our balcony. The staff here is very helpful. We will be coming back to this hotel next year!

We had a fantastic time here. The bed was comfy and the view of the ocean was perfect. There are three pools, a nice bar and restaurant, and the staff is so helpful and friendly. Perfect location to the beach. I watched the pool lifeguard, he was wearing a Penn State sweatshirt. When a little boy went under the water in the pool was moved quick! He looked like he wasn't paying attention, but boy was he! Kudos to this young man.

As everyone says, this is a good location in terms of the beach, boardwalk and restaurants. Our problems: there were just enough non-mask wearing people to be frustrating. Saying something to the people didn't work (got that indignant "How dare you suggest I wear a mask in an elevator. It's my right not to.") and saying something to the staff didn't work - they have signs, but they cannot enforce it. Also, we discovered dirty dishes put away in the cupboards with the clean and in the bathtub area, a half used shampoo container. Not the end of the world, but for a chain claiming to be doing elevated cleaning due to COVID, made us skeptical. We found that even with the AC, damp bath towels just were not drying. On the plus side, when we called for extra towels, they were delivered very quickly. So all in all, "average" seems fair.
