    A older Boardwalk Hotel but looked remodeled, Clean, Very good location for everything. Very confortable Bed, View from the side room was good, 6th floor...And I will have no problem staying again.

    Minor but vending and ice machine were on bottom floor.

    Easy to locate and perfect location.

    Parking was slightly confusing. Maybe because I was tired late at night.

    Guest rating

    The rate of the room.

    The hotel had a very bad odor. Outdated and bare minimums in hotel room. This room was right next to the elevator. Two steps from elevator and you were at our door. The elevator chimed everytime it opened (which was heard easily through our room door). This room had a connecting door and we could hear children laughing and jumping on the bed in the room nextdoor. Not at all our idea of a weekend getaway. We checked out immediately and asked for a refund which was stated we would be given, yet we haven't received a credit for the first night's stay which was charged upon reservation. A complaint was made to the Howard Johnson Customer Service center.

    The location is great. The restaurant was convient, food was good and prices were good. was wonderful. The staff was friendly. Parking was convient.

    The water in the pool and hot tool looked questionable to me so I did not use it. That was disappointing. I was also surprised that when housekeeping came I did not get clean glasses they washed mine? Mattress was not that comfortable. Having the ice machine in the basement was inconvenient and not sure of the security on the ground level if that door is locked after a certain hour and a key card is needed to get in

    Very good

    You have to understand that this is an Ocean City hotel and in Ocean City, especially on the Boardwalk, the hotels and motels are generally grimey, mildew ridden poorly kept poorly managed dumps that the management worries little about being able to rent the rooms for. This HoJo is obviously trying hard to dispell that image. It was clean, the staff was friendly and when there was an issue with the toilet it was promptly fixed. The rooms are small and the remodeling is of contractor grade and not fancy but you don't get a room on the boardwalk at OC to stay in your room. The view from our 7th floor side room was absolutely fantastic. Don't get me wrong, this isn't the Ritz. I would never stay in a hotel of this minimal amenity and quality level anywhere else, but in Ocean city, on the boardwalk, I will probably never stay anywhere else! Oh, and by the way, the breakfast at the connected restaurant was excellent. I could even drink the coffee.

    housekeeping was very friendly. good location. loved the microwave and frigerator. loved the bigger showers.

    I travel alot so here it is vending service was not on the ground floor like posted in elevator. your candy selection had no chocolate to offer. ice machine broken. only had one trash can in whole room. had to hang clothes on shower curtain because no clothes rack in room. and no iron in room. also hard to use bathroom no place to place curling iron, makeup and etc.

    The Howard Johnson was very nice and the staff was very nice too. The restaurant/bar looked beautiful but we did not go in as we were only there overnight. Our room was smaller than expected but it was otherwise nice, clean and had a good view.

    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.

    Superb

    liked being right at the ocean, ocean front room, close to boardwalk activities and food/stores, staff very polite and friendly and made you feel welcome. Cleaning staff did a good job. liked the side porch w/rocking chairs! The beds were extremely comfortable. Liked having fridge/microwave and coffee pot in room. Very handy.

    I did not like the 2nd floor room/balcony as the balcony view blocked most of the front of balcony by roof line which is not the case for floors above. Water from above (probably AC units) dripped down onto roof most of the time and the space between roof line and balcony full of trash that had accumulated. Paying for an ocean front room this was disappointing.
