This was our 3rd time staying at this hotel. They really keep the hotel clean and well maintained. We love being so close to the boardwalk and the beach. The pool was very nice also. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. We loved it so much we are considering coming back before the end of the season.

We really enjoyed our stay here! We were approximately a 30 second walk to the beach. Everything was nearby! Staff did an excellent job of cleaning our room daily! Outdoor pool was a huge plus. Only reason we didn't rate it 5 stars was because it was a little dated! Price was very reasonable and we would definitely stay there...

Just leaving the motel. We stayed this weekend and the weekend prior. I love the location- walking distance to the beach and the boards. And the friendliest front desk personnel you will ever meet. Pool is great. We have always had a first floor room and have never had problems hearing people above like at other places we have been...

Thank you! We're so glad you have chosen the Harris House as your vacation destination at the Ocean City beach, and we're thrilled that your trip was so enjoyable. As a desk clerk myself, I'd like to extend a personal thanks for the "shout out" in your review. We have all been working together for many years and we truly...

We took a quick 2 day getaway to Ocean City in the middle of high season, and this place was perfect! Its only half a block from the boardwalk, the rooms were clean and fresh and the staff was friendly and accommodating. This was our second stay, and we'll definitely be back again.

Ive stayed in ocean city twice at 2 other hotels but this motel was the best choice i made. Its steps away from boardwalk. Easy beach access. Clean as a whistle!!!! This includes the room, pool, and grounds. Very nice people at the desk as well. Quiet at night but not much during day so if u have kids that...

Thank you so much! The phrase "clean as a whistle" makes us all kinds of happy inside, since that is our A #1 top priority. Our housekeeping staff cleans and double-checks each room, so that rarely is anything overlooked. And the same holds true for the grounds and pool, as you mentioned, which are cared to by our maintenance staff,...

We absolutely love coming here with our 2 young kids. It can't get any easier being this close to the boardwalk and having a pool. You can walk to the beach in 1 minute. And the hotel staff is so friendly and professional. We couldn't recommend it more! We travel with our 2 and 5 year old.

We stayed here for a quick 2 night getaway. The location can't be beat, about 50 feet from the boardwalk! The staff is friendly. The room was very clean and was cleaned thoroughly during our stay as well. There is a good size pool that was great to use during our stay. The room had a microwave and fridge. The...

Nice place - very pleasant staff - close to beach and boardwalk. Changing/bathroom facility was clean and great help in extending your visit for a few more hours. Pool was slightly heated but clean and well maintained.

We loved the room and location for our first stay at the Harris house for Memorial day weekend. Unfortunately there was a large group which spend the day drinking so much that they were too rowdy around other families and kids. They would grab other people's kids, we're very rough, we're drinking straight from glass wine bottles around d the...

Hi, We are extremely sorry to hear that a single group caused you any heartache at our motel, especially after you were kind enough to note that you loved your room, loved our location, and feel our property has a lot going for it. Let me just say first and foremost, this group was not at all indicative of the...
