fresh journey
"Easy access, nice view but the guy in the restaurant was too grumpy with attitude. Otherwise, all was good."
Verified Guest from Reading, PA US rated Holiday Inn Ocean City 9 out of 10 on November 28, 2011
A Great Place to Stay
"The room was clean and well-kept, and the view was magnificent! The fact that it was an efficiency made it great for saving our money for parasailing and jetskiing instead of buying pre-cooked meals. Housekeeping services the rooms pretty late, so there's no rush to get out of bed each day, and every evening there was a knock at the door with someone wanting to know if we needed anything. What a wonderful vacation!!"
