Ocean City, MD is a resort beach town located in the mid-Atlantic less than 20 minutes from the border of Delaware. During the summer, this ordinarily small community of about 7,000 year-round resident swells to well over a quarter million weekend visitors.
But it doesn’t have to be summer time to stay in an Ocean City hotel. Hordes of travelers visit this idyllic beach town gem for its lush, challenging golf courses, abundant bay and deep-sea fishing, Casino at Ocean Downs entertainment complex, and the family-friendly Delmarva Discovery Center. Explore authentic shipwreck recreations and other seafloor treasures at the Ocean City Life-Saving Station Museum at the boardwalk’s south end inlet. This museum is one of the last places to learn about the U.S. Life-Saving Service, the predecessor to today’s Coast Guard.
Have a history buff in the family? Take a tour of the town’s historic sites, including the 1870 Victorian Italianate style Costen House, which features original, 19th century medical instruments from Dr. Isaac Costen’s collection. Visit Furnace Town Living Heritage Museum, which consists of 25-wooded acres with indoor and outdoor exhibits like a weaving house, blacksmith shop, an iron furnace and other meticulously restored 19th century structures. Naturalists can take a stroll on the mile-long walking trail, part of the bordering Nassawango Preserve, an off-season birding and environmentalist destination.

We booked the OceanCity Holiday Inn because it looked the best in the pics online and had pretty good reviews. Overall we liked the hotel, great location away from all of the booze crowd. The hotel[More]
has a cute outdoor patio and pool and immediate access to the beach. Parking is ample as well. Compared to other costly hotels we would possibly stay here again. Our rate was $260 per night, where my friend stayed on the crowed boardwalk with the booze crowd and paid $350 per night. Ron Jon surf shop is across from the hotel, as well as Sweet Frog Froyo, so that was nice. Also, Taste of Italy, the Italian restaurant which is attached to the hotel, is pretty excellent. We ate here several times and were happy with it. I recommend trying this place for great Italian food or an outstanding artisan pizza.
Cons: The hotel is run down a bit. Our safe would not work but was fixed, our front door handle just fell off but was fixed, our key card hardly worked but eventually we were able to get in our room after 2 mins of trying (on numerous occassions) and the light in the bathroom was hanging out of the ceiling. The indoor pool is not heated. [Less]
