I have stayed her 2 times. I tried the holiday Inn on the beach at 6600 coastal highway and we did not like it as much. Our room was dated and drafty. Seemed like it might have been the older part of the hotel though (was an Ocean front room). Much nicer room at the Holiday inn express.

We went last minute down the Ocean for an over night stay. While I wanted to get an Ocean Front room someplace I found that most of the hotels were closed and the ones open were booked up with a Convention in town. We were able to find a room here facing the bay and it was nice. Staff were...

Horribly disappointed! My family has stayed here each December for the last 5+ years, but this will most certainly be our last stay at this hotel. We checked in around 9 pm Friday night. At 11pm, my son discovered bed bugs on the beds. Upsetting, but I understand it happens in the hospitality industry occasionally. We then changed rooms/floors, nothing...

We used IHG points for a quick getaway at the end of the summer. We like the north end of Ocean City so this hotel is in a perfect location for us and we enjoyed using the park immediately behind the hotel for morning walks. There are several good food options in walking distance as well. Our room was fine,...

My wife and I stayed at the Holiday Inn Express over a weekend. Because we visited Ocean City in the off season, we received what ended up being an excellent rate for such a nice hotel.

I chose this hotel partly because it is quite close to the Delaware state line where there is no sales tax. I also did not want to be too close to the boardwalk & the noise that goes along with it. The hotel is bayside so you have to cross the street to get to the ocean but behind the...
