Score from 234 reviews Very good
Heating and AC unit too loud kept us up most of the night
WiFi, location, room, parking.
Only one ice box in the entrance. No ice boxes on the floors.
The staff was helpful and friendly very close to the beach and houses a nice restaurant we had a very nice time at the beach
Housekeeping totally missed our room the one day. Didn't do the room at all
front desk staff was very rude....
Location was excellent. Staff was friendly.
The room had a mustiness. We were glad it was a nice day. We were able to open the door and leave it open to remove some/all of the smell.
Location (on the boardwalk)
Sink didn't drain properly and our room location was above the dumpster and were woke up by it the trash removal days.
The staff was courteous, professional, and responsive. We had problems with the people in the next room blaring music loudly in the middle of the night and smoking (it's a non-smoking hotel). The staff took quick measure to address the problems. The room was very clean and the bed was very comfortable. The view from the balcony was terrific! The bar was nice and the drinks were worth the money.
The hotel is aging and high-use. The lobby furniture was noticeably sagging and soiled. The ceiling in the room was warped and some ceiling tiles were loose. We were three in a room and the sofa bed was beyond uncomfortable. The mattress was so thin the springs were nearly visible.
Nice clean room with an ocean front balcony! Staff is the best! Ashley goes above and beyond and is an asset to Howard Johnson's. Thank you for making my moms first trip to the ocean a wonderful experience. We can't thank you enough. :-)
No complaints at all!
Great hotel right on the boardwalk! Room was small but comfortable. Mini frig, microwave and coffee maker. There is also a small safe apparently because we were charged $1.50 per day for it! They have ocean front rooms and also balconys on the side as well but unless you are on the fifth, sixth or seventh floor, doubtful your view will be very good because of the building next door.
Lobby is so dark, dated, not be beachy at all, kind of depressing. We were supposed to have an ocean front room, we did not.
The staff was very good and housekeeping was excellant. Location on the boardwalk was very good. I would rate it at a 6 out of 10.
Rooms were small and bathroom was very, very small. Both needed updated. Bistro Restaurant attached to Hotel was sub par. Food was just OK and priced high for what it was. Rooms were damp smelling. Shower/tub drain would back up with 2-3 inches of water. Said something to front desk and they immediately call maintenance in to fix. It worked ok for 24 hrs and started to back up again.
Amazing view right on the boardwalk. Super comfy king size bed. Large flat screen TV. Very clean. Friendly staff. Nice bar/rest downstairs. Great beach access.
Separate garage with no elevator. Fairly small bathroom.
Went there for bike week 2014 and had a marvelous time. Slept like a log and great ocean and city views
Proximity to boardwalk - bus facilities - just a great place
Couldn't figure out how to put ironing board down!! Not mechanical! Coffee took a long time to brew!
Convenience to beach Staff was very friendly Parking garage was great Balcony was very nice
Wifi was slow Bathroom was small Room was sort of expensive
I was on vacation with my family, and just about everything Howard Johnson's had to offer - location, room, amenities, etc. was great.
Just one hiccup - I was informed that I was scheduled to check out a day earlier than expected. I did not have my bookings.com confirmation email with me. But, the staff did find my family another room. I don't know what happened but my initial booking with Bookings.com was correct, Howard Johnson's had it wrong in their system.
I liked the location and the staff were friendly. Food in the restaurant was good. What view we had was ok.
The bathrooms were very small and the exhaust fan didn't run. The hot water didn't last too long we had four people in the room and shouldn't have to take "speed" showers so everyone could have hot water. When I booked the hotel I asked for full ocean views and an upper floor. When I got there the front desk person said your hotel never received the message and usually doesn't. I was put out because I didn't get a full view and that was one of the reasons I booked a room with your hotel.
Pro: Excellent access to the beach (mere steps away); oceanfront room with balcony where I could people watch those on the boardwalk; personable ch eck in/out staff and a very nice room. Con: Slow elevator; hot tub/pool room could have been cleaner...water looked gross; coupon books should be near front desk instead of down by the pool area.
Con: Slow elevators; hot tub/pool area could have been cleaner plus the hot tub/pool water looked gross; rules in pool area are not followed (saw a diaper child in the pool!); coupons should be on the 1st floor vs the ground floor.
My first trip to Ocean City, I enjoyed the hotel and the staff were very courteous. The hotel is located right off of the beach and has its own parking garage. I will definitely stay here again.
I love the side view of the beach and easy access to boardwalk and other facilities close byi
I can hear the kids making noise next door as I tried to sleep so we had to sleep with the fan blowing all night to block the noise.
It was a bit pricey.
Location. Updated facility. Clean. price was just ok.
No gym or work out room
The staff was Very helpful & nice ! Very Professional !!
I Did Not like the desk clerk said she would call me when our room became available ! We arrived early, called@3:00, she said, I didn't call you, So it's Not ready !! We waited until 4:00 & the nice New clerk said it had Been Ready !! Stain on bed ruffle ! (Blood) !!
August is the prime rental season and this hotel has higher prices as everyone does. It is right on the boardwalk, with plenty of parking...2 very nice features. The rooms are small but very clean and comfortable. We were upgraded on 3 of the nights to a higher floor and had a nice view. On the last night we had to move to a room right next to the elevator. It was a little bigger, which was nice, and we did not hear the elevator (as some had commented on earlier). The air conditioning unit made a nice "white noise" to drown out anyone talking outside of the room. The staff was very helpful, towels were changed out everyday and overall for the time of year it was a good value
Rooms were a little small, and it was a little pricey, but any of the hotels will be much less expensive in september.
Staff was very friendly and very Helpful with suggestions for dinning out. The view from the room was amazing.
My First night there was a awful smell in the hallway which was somewhat corrected the next day, didn't like the fact that I had to go 3 floors to get ice, the shower in the bathroom was small and the hotel restaurant both service and food was horrible. Not what I expected for an ocean front room
Too small and absolutely no counter space for toiletries and the shower had a lot to be desired not good water pressure at all! If you have a water saver in the shower head you are doing yourself a disservice cause it takes twice as much water to get shampo out of your hair therefore using more water!!!
