Good location for kids; nice pools. Nice laundry facilities. Price increases significantly each yr. Used to receive $100 off a weeks stay but no longer. Getting too expensive with no incentive. Rooms are showing wear; doesn't seem to be much upkeep. Noisy at times too.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by idaddo Very clean with excellent maid service.
My wife is always quite picky about the cleanliness of the hotels we stay in. For once, she had NO COMPLAINTS! She found the room and bathroom up to her standards and even remarked during our stay about the great maid service we were receiving. GOOD JOB, Holiday Inn!!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by CC Squared Great location, staff, horrible food and Beverage
We stay here every year with my family. My son is 9 yrs old, loves the pool. Great location to everything, and staff is generally friendly and helpful. We had never eaten here before and opted to try their "fine dining" option at Hemmingways. What a embarrassment for Holiday Inn. Our service was good, but have never bad such poor quality food and drink at any basic restaurant in any hotel, or even lesser level food and beverage operations. Chef Mike (microwave that is) was in use for most food items. Never saw wings and ribs on other "fine dining" menus, usually this is bar food. But even that simple bar food was microwaved, dried out, bland, and very disappointing. What a shame for such a otherwise great property. I hope that F&B reads this objectively and understands that we want them to be good. Also, drink mix needs to be upgraded, perhaps to Island Oasis. The mix they use is cheaper and it is sour with after taste. Being a ocean front summer resort, there is no excuse for poor quality mixers and the price point. Pool service and lifeguards have improved since last year, a considerable feat, given the pool for quality employees shrinking. They understood and spoke great English, since they were locally born and raised, friendly. There were a few problem kids causing havoc for the others and the lifeguards addressed it head on. Bravo. Views of ocean and beach, boardwalk from room (high floor) always wonderful, room clean, beds comfortable. We will be back as we do each year, but will most likely go back to cooking breakfast in room, taking other meals out and sticking to bottled beverages at pool. That is unless the F&B steps up their game, then there is always room for redemption there as well, at least I hope so. It would be great to have good food and drink to match the great location and gracious staff.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pauliebaby Just the best place in OC to relax and be pampered
From top to bottom the very best place to stay in ocean city MD! Clean classy hotel, friendly and hard working staff, beautiful setting.
Family oriented, safe, massive kiddie pool that our entire group (28 ppl) hang around all day with the little ones.
Hats off to manager Brian, who always makes things effortless for us every time we visit the place.
This was our 14th summer there, and it's the only place we will ever stay in OC....Highly recommended!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Dee131 Nice location for families
It was nice that my tween and teenage children could walk the boardwalk for food and entertainment. Although the room could have been cleaned better. Very dusty on furniture.

We have been to this Holiday Inn on the Boardwalk now for the fourth time and each time it gets better and better! The cleanliness of the room was drastically improved from last year( I did complain in an email to the management). We couldn't be more pleased with Terri. The front desk staff was extremely attentive and friendly. The location is ideal! Right on the boardwalk what can one family ask for. The kids pool is a total bonus. This is the first year we really ate a lot of lunch at the pool. The service at the pool was great! These girls work! We had a corner suite ocean view which is great. The floor had new carpet and the furniture in our room was new. VERY NICE! I would highly recommend this hotel and give it a 5 star.
