This property was beautiful and convenient. The room was comfortable for 2 adults and 3 teens. We had a Southern view which was amazing. The pull out sofa was not comfortable & was not made upon arrival; we had to call the desk for linens which were brought to us very quickly. The stove in the kitchen needed some help (the burners were not connected).
There is shampoo, mouthwash and lotion- no conditioner. :-( If you forget to bring something (or anything... ) there is a CVS just over a block away - they have also have eggs and oj as well.
We used the adult pool. It was very nice. There was one thing that was very upsetting tho. For as much money these suites are there should be security at the pool entrance. We spoke to many UNSUPERVISED children who's parents sent them from the beach to the hotel to swim (and they were admitting they were not staying at the property). They were loud and there were many of them.
The parking lot under the hotel was awesome, because it was close and could leave our "beach gear" in the car, but again we noticed many "beach goers" with no parking pass, were parking under the hotel and saw them leaving in the late afternoon. For how limited the parking is this should also be monitored.
There are wrist bands for the pool and parking passes for the cars; I am not sure why they use these if they aren't being monitored.
All in all, we had a great stay & would recommend the property.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Mollykm00 Ok. Mostly below average. Nice beach.
Beds were comfortable, view was great and location is good. Hotel is a little run down. "Kids eat free" is a joke. The Mac and cheese was boxed, the "fresh fruit" was a few bites of canned fruit cocktail in syrup and the dessert was a freezer pop. My burger with "fried onions" was a pre made frozen party with canned onions and my husbands brick oven pizza was probably a frozen pizza. There were several flies around while we ate. The bathroom could have been cleaner and the shower was a weird jacuzzi tub. They asked how my stay was when I checked out. I said it was "ok," and the staff responded "that's great." We would not go back to this hotel, but we also would probably not go back to ocean city. It was ok, but for the price there are much better beach vacations.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lulu P Don't waste another minute looking elsewhere....BOOK IT!
Stayed over Father's Day weekend all in 1 room with my hubby, daughter, son in law & 2 grandchildren 4 & 2. Room was OUTSTANDING! Excellent views of the Ocean beach, Boardwalk & city thru to the other side of the marina. Queen beds with queen pullout sofa. Full kitchen & fridge which was great for all the yummies from eating out and Boardwalk treats. Holiday Inn by far has the best pools on the entire boardwalk. They have the greatest family pool with 2 slides, a lazy river & whirlpool thingy area that is loads of fun for adults & kids alike. A large, clean jacuzzi. Elevators were great and not much waiting for the amount of guests staying. Large, clean Indoor pool next to the in house restaurant. Staff very attentive, kind & ever so honest. There's an older housekeeper on the 5th floor "Felicia" who is Angelical...my son in law mistakenly left his very expensive smartphone charging in the room after we checked out. As we we were in the elevator leaving, we hear, hold the elevator & it turns out to be FELICIA. She saved us so much headache if we would have had to recreate everything had we left without the phone. Carpets clean, suite was roomy & showers were the best with 3 rain heads in them. I watched the pools being cleaned right after closing. Bottom line, as I mentioned in my title, don't waste another minute ..... RUN & BOOK IT! Holiday Inn on 17th St. superseded the expectations of a beach hotel, they maintain this location as if it was the best oceanfront hotel in the Caribbean. I will never stay anywhere else in OC. Holiday Inn Mgmt should be very proud of their location, staff & employees & how comfortable they make guests feel. Thanks for making this a great family memory for years to come.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LOR2 THE HOLIDAY INN AT 17TH STREET PROVIDES QUIETNESS
WE WORK BETWEEN 50-60 HOURS A WEEK AND WHEN WE GET TIME FOR A VACATION, IN THE EVENINGS WE LIKE QUIETNESS. AFTER ENJOYING THE BEACH AND WALKING THE BOARDWALK WE CAN RETURN TO THE HOLIDAY INN LATE AND HAVE QUIETNESS AND PEACEFULNESS AS WE SLEEP. WE HAVE BEEN STAYING AT THE HOLIDAY INN FOR ABOUT 10 YEARS. WE ARE ALWAYS SATISFIED WITH OUR STAY, THE ROOMS ARE CLEAN, THE STAFF ARE ALWAYS HELPFUL WITH WHATEVER YOU SHOULD NEED.
