I love this hotel for the space, the view, the relaxation, but do not love the peak season rates.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by venturer A bit of spring fun and winter bliss
Stayed for 4 nights/days with 3 kids. Fantastic oceanfront suite and view. Very clean and quiet. Nice fitness and game room. Loved the vending choices as many hotels offer soda's only. Weather was 50's but trip ended with a winter blast of minus degree real feel and snow. The staff offered an extra night at a half off rate so we could stay safe as a blizzard was moving through my hometown. Had so much fun. Food was so good I felt as if I was doing something wrong; without a high price. The pool was a tad cold or maybe the room needed more heat. I travel a lot and this hotel ranks high. I only wish the summer rates weren't so high so we could enjoy this hotel during warm months. Great memories...

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by SteveDorsey Clean, but not worth it
Essentially, one of the most expensive properties in OC--even in winter. Oceanfront views are excellent and staff are friendly. Prices for food in the restaurant aren't absurdly expensive. Rooms are comfortable and clean. However, rooms have definitely seen better days. Rust stains on outside of refrigerator, and a beige hot tub in the bathroom with a disgusting plastic shower curtain and a shower head poorly cut out of a tiled drop ceiling--like in an office building. Kind of feels like you'd see the same bathroom in a hospital room. Parking was an issue--reservationist made it clear parking passes were required, but the front desk staff said they weren't needed. Maybe that's why it was so full. Indoor pool water was a bit murky. And gym equipment was akin to what you'd find in a motel. Overall, hotel is on-par with others nearby. You can find equal quality for half the price not too far.

My husband and I have been staying with you every Christmas Day through New Year's Day since the hotel has been built! We love it!
We both have battled cancer and have beaten it thus far, so we are doing all we can, while we can! We walk the boardwalk, we read and just flat out stop and enjoy one another's company! I manage a conference center and my husband is a Pastor, so we are on the go and on call at all times.
The Holiday Inn & Suites will always be our favorite place at the ocean!
Thank you and all of your staff, for treating us so well!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by pejav Horrible Bed
My husband and I made a last minute decision to get out of town for New Year's Eve and wanted to go to the beach. We decided to stay at this hotel since we had stayed here several other times in the past and always came home refreshed. The only King room available was the handicap accessible room so we booked it. The thought of having a walk in shower was very appealing to us because climbing in the tub was always a major ordeal.
Everything went well until we retired for the night and found ourselves rolling to the center of the bed!!!! Needless to say, we woke up tired because it was miserable.
When we checked out we told the individuals at the desk about the bed and what a horrible nights sleep we had and they told us that we were glad it was brought to there attention and would get a new bed for that room. My husband and I are not people looking to get things for free but we were very surprised that they offered us no compensation for our horrible night sleep. Not even a reduction in our bill. These rooms are expensive and when you pay this price for a room, the beds should be comfortable.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sandy feet Great hotel, huge rooms!
Wow! This place has the largest rooms I've ever seen in a hotel. Ocean view and big balcony, full size kitchen with full size fridge. This is a true oceanfront resort hotel on the board walk in OC. Perfect location, clean and priced great. I will stay here again and I do recommend this hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Billkh Our annual holiday visit.
We have been visiting every year at Christmas time for the past 11 years. This year was just as nice as all the others. Staff at the front desk is always very friendly and accommodating, some even know us enough to welcome us back! Love the location, restaurant and indoor pool for our kids.
We will be back again next year!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Dalesmailbox Great room , great view
If we had to complain about anything, it would be the bed. The mattress was well worn (or just way to soft and saggy for our liking) .... Gave us a back ache and stiffness each morning, and a somewhat sleepless night from flip-flopping trying to get comfy. I'd also recommend full size firm pillows , especially for the King Upgraded Suite we had. Those little half size flat pillows were pretty worthless :(
Over all... A 4 out of 5 for the room. (A fix on The bed and pillow issue would push it to a full 5!)

We are from Northern Va and spend a week in OC each year. We had stayed at several hotels until we found Holiday Inn. HI OC is the only hotel we will stay. Everything about the hotel is great. I am retired military and stayed all over the world and HI OC is one of the best.

The hotel was lovely and it was a nice place. My family loved it. Was nice to have a kitchen to use also. The kids loved the pool and it was nice to have full sized towels. The staff was awesome especially Natalie. She made out stay the best.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by nodriveslow Nice place and location
Stayed here with the family for a post Christmas get-away.
Overall, a very nice place.
Enjoyed the room size and having a separate L/R with the pull out bed.
Location of pool is a bit strange (right alongside the bar/restaurant)
Housekeeping gave us new towels even though we did as the sign said and had them on the towel racks (they did forget to give us a new floor mat)
Would stay here again if the price is right (reg prices are just a bit on the high side considering time of year)

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Air Show Bill Best OC destination
Once again we had a fabulous time at the Holiday Inn and Suites at 17th St in Ocean City Maryland. We make this resort our pampered get away for a night or weekend in the off season, and of course every year for the OC Air Show in June. I hesitate to say that winter is the off season, as at this resort all amenities are open in winter, except for the out door pools! Chef Frank at Hemmingway's always prepares great food and his staff is as good as it gets. It was nice to be recognized immediately upon our arrival by several staff members. The pool bar bartender Patrick and our server at dinner, Melissa took care of all of our needs. Room service for breakfast was quick, hot and delicious. We visit Ocean City regularly and look forward to spending time at this property due to the top notch service and attention to detail of all staff. Staying at our Condo on 94th street is great, but we just don't get pampered the way we do at a holiday Inn. My wife, children and I can't wait for Summer. See you at the OC Air Show in June for the Air Force Thunderbird's!
The Blue Angles will fly in 2015- GO NAVY!!!

It had been a few years since I stayed at this hotel, but still a wonderful. The hotel is beautiful, rooms very spacious. I commented to my husband how comfortable the bed was, unlike many hotels. We were ocean front & the hotel sits right on the boardwalk. Didn't use the indoor pool, but have in the past. Outdoor closed (December). The day we checked in we had lunch & cocktails at the bar. Food was good & the bartender was very attentive & entertaining. Overall a great experience. I will stay there again & would recommend it to anyone.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Nunchie Disappointed
Was so looking forward to our stay - had heard so many wonderful things about this hotel. Have always stayed at the one on 66th street. What a let down for me. When making the reservation I requested an early check in of 1p.m. The reservationist said she would note that request in the remarks section. I also called the hotel and was told they would do everything they could but the hotel was full that weekend. When we arrived at 1:15, the young gentleman told me our room was not available. I told him I had requested an early check-in as I was watching and listening to other people checking in early and receiving rooms. Miraculously he finds a room (208) - wish I had known the view of the ocean was obstructed by canopy poles and a tarp covered pool. That's what I get for requesting an early check-in! Will not stay here again - not worth the money. Will continue to stay at the Holiday Inn on 66th Street!
I expect more being a Rewards Club Member.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by VeghS Great view, rooms a bit dated, but restaurant surprisingly good
We stayed at the ocean front suite. The view from the balcony was nice. The room was OK, with full kitchen, but the furniture and appliances could use an upgrade. The jacuzzi is a nice touch, but again the rest of the bathroom, including the shower curtain, is rather 'roadside motelish'. The real surprise, however, was the restaurant: truly great food at reasonable prices! My IHG Gold Ambassador membership did not buy me much though... I would definitely consider staying in this hotel again, especially with family.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Beneboy59 The greatest experience ever
This was the greatest experience ever. We stayed here from 11/14 to 11/16 of 2013. The room was a suite with a spacious bedroom, king bed, balcony overlooking the OCEAN, 10th floor, room 1010, free washer & dryer 2 doors down the hall, big living room with sleeper sofa, full kitchen, dinette area in the living room, big flat screen tv in the bedroom n living room, dishes, pots & pans, dishwasher, full size refrigerator, you can cook in room, eat at the restaurant downstairs, or room service. Oh by the way, the bathroom is to die for, it has a juccuzi tub with the shower head recessed in the center of the ceiling. A must experience for the lover in you. Oh yes, not to for get. If you are a collector of SEASHELLS, as your standing on the beach facing the ocean look to your right. There are 2 areas that have formations of huge rocks, around the base of the are shells you will have to work at getting out, but well worth the work. The view from the balcony will leave you breathless. Ocean view only, so don't book the souther view if you want to see the ocean. Enjoy, and have as much fun as we did.....

I took a mini vacation and was looking forward to a relaxing couple of days. I was also looking forward to watching the Redskin game on Thurday night. I flipped the channels in my room and no Redskin game. I went downstairs to the bar and no Redskin game.
If you are football fan, and it is game night, you might want to avoid the Holiday Inn!
