Harris House was just the place to stay with family. Right off the boardwalk, very clean and well kept. The fantastic pool and the short distance to the beach were exceptional benefits. The refrigerator and microwave in the room made our stay very comfortable as well as the crib provided for a little one. Plenty of evidence that COVID-19 was taken very seriously. We rented a scooter from a local vender and were provided an easy place to plug in for a charge. I would recommend this hotel for a family. Fantastic Stay!

Thank you for this extremely positive review, and specifically for mentioning how clean and family friendly you found the Harris House! We do take cleaning extremely seriously, and have intensified our already rigorous standards in the wake of COVID-19. We are happy to report that not a single guest or employee contracted the coronavirus during the summer of 2020, and we plan to enforce our comprehensive protocols once again for the upcoming summer of 2021. We're also happy to hear you enjoyed easy access to your electric scooter, which we provide parking for up front, right outside the office for safekeeping. Again, thank you for choosing the Harris House for your stay, and we hope to provide you with clean, safe accommodations right beside the beach and boardwalk the next time you vacation in Ocean City! Sincerely... Mike B.

I've been very skeptical about traveling anywhere since the pandemic but my daughter and I decided to go to the Jersey Shore overnight to get out of the house for a bit. From the outside, the Harris is your typical motel but on the inside the room was very clean, simple and nicely decorated. Its not a 5 star hotel but I don't think its trying to be one. Besides the fact that its clean and afforable, its steps away from boardwalk. You can't beat the convenience. I would come again and recommend to others.

Hello - thank you so much for this detailed and extremely positive review! Like you, we also had hesitations about what this summer would bring, however after researching the data and diving into the guidelines provided by the CDC and the hotel industry as a whole, we put together a comprehensive series of safety protocols that have worked incredibly well. We are so happy to have been able to provide you with clean, safe accommodations right by what many consider to be the best beach in all of America. Thank you for giving us the ultimate compliment - that you would stay again, and would recommend to others. We can't ask for higher praise, and we thrilled the motel met your expectations. Again, thank you for taking the time to provide this feedback, and we hope you have a great 'rest of the summer'.

While we have never stayed in a motel, with Covid restrictions we made a last minute decision to go to Ocean City for the weekend. Only found this motel available and it had decent reviews. The staff is very nice and accommodating and we had an issue with the water not draining quickly in the tub and they came right away and fixed it. While the room and bathroom definitely needs updating ... it smelled cleaned and we felt safe. It was very close to the beach, and in the center of everything. Did not give 5 stars because it was pricey for an old room. Would consider going there again if we can’t travel out of state. Would recommend.

We had a wonderful time staying at Harris house, so close to the beach and boardwalk, the pool was great! Everything was so clean! I had an emergency with my daughter she was transported in the ambulance and one of the owners actually drove me to the hospital! Now that’s great service ❤️

We have been staying at the Harris House for over 25 years. We were concerned about Covid-19 and weren’t sure if we should vacation this year. Am I glad we did!! This place is always welcoming and amazing. The staff is so accommodating, friendly and helpful. They always work with us when we come with a lot of family members. Mike and his staff are the best. My 86 year old Dad didn’t want Covid to stop him from seeing the ocean one more time, and he couldn’t have felt safer with the precautions in place. You will not be disappointed staying here. Great people, great prices, fantastic location and amazing staff!

Room tip: Rooms on 12th street side have great view of ocean.

Thank you so much for this thoughtful and inspiring review! Just like you, we also were very concerned about COVID-19 and that is why we delayed our opening by four weeks, time we used to do a deep dive into all of the necessary precautions and protocols we would put in place, for the safety of our guests, and our staff. And now, to hear that these safety measures helped you and your family feel comfortable and secure in the midst of this pandemic is truly the ultimate reward for this season. Cleanliness and safety have always been our #1 concern, but this year in particular, we wanted to rise to the occasion and create a unique, safe environment at the beach that would help people truly feel they got away from it all, at least for a few days or weeks. In particular, we wanted to thank you for all of the warm words about the staff, many of whom are long-standing members of our team and are on the exact same page when it comes to cleanliness being the single most important aspect of our motel. And finally, to hear that in even the smallest way, we were able to facilitate something as touching as your father seeing the ocean again... that gives us chills and is a story we will share with the entire staff. There is something magical about Ocean City, and it beings with what is right there in the name: that most beautiful and powerful Atlantic Ocean, which has a way of soothing the soul and carrying us all far away from our troubles, at least for a little while. That families can come to the Harris House and experience the ocean just steps away, right outside your door, fills us with immense pride. We are touched beyond words by your review, and hope to see you again the next time you visit Ocean City. Again, thank you!
