Location is the Key!

Our weekend stay at the Howard Johnsons Express in Ocean City, MD was exceptional as far as value and location. Rooms were clean and with an Ocean View to top it all off, amazing!

Excellent Hotel

Location a little far down the boardwalk but this can be viewed as either an advantage or disadvantage, as it is therefore much quieter! Right beside the beach, rooms beautiful, very spacious with kitchen area. Definitely reccommend this hotel to anyone!!

Great Ocean View

The hotel was clean, the staff that checked us in in the afternoon was nice. However, when we left the parking lot to go out to dinner and drove back, there was no parking spot at the private parking at the hotel. The girl working at the night Shift staff didn't care that there was no parking slot available. she told me to park my car outside in the public parking. Luckily we found a space in the public parking but had to wait sometime for someone to come move their car. Overall the hotel stay was good and the view was great.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

This hotel has a good ocean view and balcony to sit and relax. You could see the ocean and waves but just a few blocks down where the major hotel stripes are located, you have the view of the rocks.
