We have stayed in Ocean City MD nearly every Summer for the past 20 + years. We have stayed in different Hotels Oceanside and have visited 17th st & Atlantic many times. I find that the quality of the rooms (Kitchen, bathroom) are in need of some improvements. During our stay only 2 burners of the stove top were functional, the dishwasher was not securely attached and nearly tipped out a few times. A majority of our stay was during rainy weather and we were told we had availability to free wireless internet. My 4 children could not connect through their wireless devices and my laptop could not connect even through ethernet cable. We called the front desk who dispatched maintenance but after multiple attempts, I just gave up.
Next year I will have to think twice and maybe consider other options. For paying top dollar for these accommodations, I expected better.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Adequate
While we were only there for 2 nights, I did think it was pricey for what it was. The bed was extremely worn and uncomfortable (backache material) - creaking and sinking deeply wherever you sat or laid down. Good for kids - nice pools that are taken care of.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Allen777 Great Location
My family and I found very friendly hotel staff at this location. the room was below average condition, smelled bad and could have been cleaner. Service levels at outside and inside bars were below average. Bartenders were not interested in serving drinks. The pools were nice for the kids. This was the only reason we stayed at this hotel. Not sure if we will be back.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TNT01 Stunning Full Ocean View with Spacious Balcony
Clean, oceanfront room. Not your average disappointing beach hotel. Balcony has table for 4 with plenty of additional space. Think breakfast on balcony. Cannot beat location with being right on the boardwalk. Amazing ocean view. Pools were clean and easy access to beach just steps beyond pool. Tiki bar could have been improved with live happy hour music. Boardwalk trolley and strip bus very nearby. Will return...no complaints.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Woodbridge2013 We Keep Coming Back!!
I think this is the 8th or 9th year in a row that we have returned to this property! Only one year did we "experiment" with a different location and it just wasn't nearly as fun/nice. What we like about it is:
1) We can get an ocean front room close enough to hear the roar of the surf.
2) On the boardwalk - we walk out of the hotel and are immediately on the boardwalk for a stroll to see all the shops and restraunts.
3) The ocean is really close to the hotel so it is a short walk across the sand before hitting the water. The farther south on the boardwalk you go, the farther away the water is. So for those near the southern end of the boardwalk, they have a very long walk - not us.
4) Great kids pool!! Sometimes I had to make the kids go to the beach because it was so much fun #lazy river, slides, whirlpoo, etc#. There is a separate adult pool too. Plus an indoor pool for rainy days.
5) One block away is a CVS to snacks, sunscreen, etc.
All in all, it just works perfect for us, so we keep coming back!!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jamie123 a great get away
We used our reward points for short weekend getaway. It was better than we had expected. The restaurant was great, the best burger I have had in years, and the prices were very resonable. Thank you for a great weekend.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RobinF 7 Years & Never Disappointed!
Just vacationed for 10 days at the Holiday Inn & Suites and booked my next stay while driving home! This was our 7th year in a row vacationing at the HI and had another amazing visit. Off season or during peak times like this 4th of July trip the staff & the accomodations never disappoint us. It's nice to see a hotel so well maintained year after year!
The rooms are clean, comfortable and extremely spacious! The pools are the best in OC. This hotel has 3 pools, 2 outside & one inside. All pools are exceptionally clean and the pool decks have plenty of unbrella's and lounge chairs. The Poolside service is affordable and makes it ever so convenient to grab lunch or a drink without leaving the oceanfront pool deck.
I honestly can't say enough about all of the fantastic family times I have been fortunate enough to experience year after year there. Our children are now between 17-21 and still want to vacation with mom & dad at the Suites because of all of our great times and memories made there thanks to the upkeep of the resort and the very friendly staff who work hard to make sure you leave happy!
The location is ideal because it's right on the boardwalk yet out of the downtown craziness. The rooms allow for a great nights rest and the atmosphere is always pleasant. We feel so safe & secure there that our children are now beginning to stay with friends without us at times and I always have peace of mind because of the clientele that stay there and the good job management does of keeping things orderly & respectful for all guest at all times!
Definitely an A+ resort for all ages. We have vacationed in the summer, had long off season weekends, celebrated many birthday milestones and had family reunions on site and have always been impressed with the food & service. I have referred many people and have never had one friend be sorry.
I would highly recommend this full service hotel and believe it is definitely beyond any others at the beach. With the awesome staff; oceanfront boardwalk location; the large, clean and tastefully decorated rooms; the fantastic pools; the fine restaurants; onsite laundry rooms; a gym that keeps expanding and the courteous valet staff you are guaranteed a GREAT time!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by fabulous55 Last minute beach trip
decided late to make a quick trip to the beach - mid-week. found this hotel at a great price in a great location on the boardwalk.
- chose it because of the chain reputation.
- this is a clean, well maintained property in need of some cosmetic updates in the room decor.
- i had a terrific "suite" - queen bed with wonderfully comfortable mattress and bedding, corner jacuzzi tub, galley full size kitchen, dining/den area. bathroom had a terrific corner shower with 3 shower heads - very relaxing after all day in the sun.
- all employees were polite, restaurant staff were all very good and food - (i only ate my breakfast there using the $10 upgrade) was excellent.
***i had a beach front room with a balcony on the 7th floor. minimal noise from boardwalk even though it was "senior" week. but great sounds all night from the ocean waves!! best part of the room.*****
WOULD GIVE an EXCELLENT for room and comfort if the decor was updated.and IF they PROVIDED A BETTER TASTING COFFEE for the room coffee maker, LIQUID CREAMERS instead of the terrible powder packets that taste like ground cardboard and a choice of teas.

I was truly amazed by the solitude of our room even though we were near the elevators. Front desk and housekeeping were very accommodating. It was an enjoyable stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AnnieO81 met all my expectations
this hotel is awesome, I have stayed at this hotel on 3 different occasions and every time I have stayed it has been everything
I would expect in a hotel. it is steps away from the ocean and very convenient to go back and forth to the pool and ocean if you have children or grandchildren. The rooms are very clean and
roomy. Try the restaurant inside for breakfast it is great. The staff
is great also!

We just had a 4 day stay here. The location is great, the rooms (suites) are a perfect value and provide beautiful views. In the end, it is all about the people. From the top on down, the property manager Chris B. and his staff are pleasant and professional and go out of their way to help you as the guest. We will return next year and stay here again.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by psu1411 Condition of property is declining
We have stayed at this hotel for the last 3 years. This year was the most disappointing of all. The conditions of the rooms have declined considerably. The screen door to the patio was very difficult to open, rooms were not cleaned on a consistant basis and actually had to be called 1 day since our room was never done, the bathroom lights were flakey, the toilet broke and my husband had to connect the flap back to the handle, the sleeper sofa my child slept on was broken. By the time these items were noticed we did not want to move rooms but the front office was informed but nothing was done except - "sorry and thanks for being a priority club member." We paid a considerable amount of money to whcih I would expect that same level of room condition. We will seriously consider staying at another facility next year if things don't improve.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by NMPct Not worth the price
I recently stayed at the Holiday Inn Oceansuites hotel in ocean City, MD with my husband. I was encouraged to book a room as there were only 2 rooms left per the person on the reservation hotline. I paid A lot of money. I was told I can get breakfast for 2 for a small amount of money. The lady failed to tell me that it was a voucher, not the entire breakfast. The check in staff failed to give me that voucher until I asked 3 people about it. And the hotel didn't even have black olives for breakfast.
I am sorry but the room was not worth all of that money. I have photos showing the rust on the refrigerator, closet floor, sprinkler above the shower, what looked like to be dirt on the shower floor, the jacuzzi had a broken panel. These items made it difficult to believe it was clean. I could not sleep well wondering about the cleanliness. The table on the balcony was not clean. The pool had sand in it. It really was not to the standards of a room for the money I paid.
I am sorry for the negative feedback but it was very disappointing. I wish I had stayed at a nearby hotel for less cost and similar amenities.

The rooms are very large: A full kitchen, 2 queen beds and a large living room with a big flat screen TV and a sleep sofa. The 2 ocean front outdoor pools are amazing - and the pool side bar and food service is such a great feature. Everyone at the hotel was very helpful and friendly. We had a great time!

We had a blast at the Holiday Inn! It was so nice, the pool was very awesome for the kids, with the whirlpool and slides. Great view of the beach and boardwalk. Close to everything! Staff was super nice! Room was clean upon arrival. We are very happy with our stay and look forward to going again! Indoor pool and weight room was nice. Not too happy with the playroom, a pool table or futsal or ping pong table would be much more fun!

Hotel is expensive - but you are paying for a prime boardwalk location, a great kids pool, with additional outdoor and indoor pools. Staff is great. Rooms are a little outdated, but you are not in your room very much anyways. Great balconies overlooking the ocean. Check out day is a great convenience as you are allowed to use the pool and beach after checkout and they provide you with a changing room (small room with bathroom and shower) for when you are ready to leave - great convenience and value.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by mtcrystal Clean rooms & balcony a bonus!
We used points for a birthday mid week getaway. Wish we would have known it was 'senior week" whole area was over run with 17/18 yr olds.
Room was clean, great for larger party. We got an upgrade but didn't use the kitchen or living room. Would have much rathered a room with King bed and balcony. The point base was disappointing as we have used less points to stay in gorgeous intercontinental properties, in that respect we were disappointed.
No gifts or perks ( besides upgrade) for Platinum members.
Jacuzzi tub with shower was a little dated... a nice tiled large shower would suit the space much better.

We stayed June 1, 2012 - June 3, 2013. It was cold on the beach, but we had a wonderful kids pool with two slides that was heated and the kids could enjoy the water. They have a lazy river, but the pull was a little strong for the young children, but the pool was well supervised and safe.
The bar was fun, the food good and two suites were just right for 5 adults and two young children. Close to boardwalk fun but not noisy.. We took the train down and back to the rides at the beginning of the boardwalk. Great weekend and can't wait to go back!!!
