We decided to not stay overnight in OC, so I was able to score a reward night here. Conveniently located near the Outlet Mall and shopping. A few places within walking distance. The West Ocean City Harbor is probably less than a couple of miles from the hotel. Quite a few bars and restaurants there. Our room was comfortable, everything worked and we had a good nights sleep.
This hotel was advertised as a "new" Holiday Inn Express. It may be a new HI however it was definitely not a new build. Our room (206) had a completely updated bathroom and new furniture however the carpet was definitely not new. The lobby had a new paint job and new furniture but the floor was tired. My SIL stayed in 213 and her bathroom was very old and dated. I assume they are in the midst of renovating everything however I wouldn't anticipate much changing over the busy summer season. It took me a long time to find a suitable property in Ocean City. I found many of the options (including motels, hotels, VRBOs, condos, etc) to be very tired and dated, have limited parking options (we were arriving by car so that was important). I got a great rate ($85 a night in June) so overall I was pleased with the property although it was nothing special.It is a good location and walkable to things. We used the exercise room and it was adequate although one day there were no towels. They also only had a water fountain. The breakfast did have a lot of options and the staff was very friendly. Parking was plentiful. Overall a nice stay.
