Harris House gave us beach tags to use for the day - a nice extra we weren't expecting.

Great place to stay

Pros: location and cleanliness
Cons: parking
Location: stores, restaurants
My family and I have stayed at Flanders and Watsons, however compared to Harris House they are overpriced. The facility was in an excellent location, only 1/2 block back from boardwalk. The staff was always concerned about the room and cleanliness. I would stay again and again. The only item to improve upon is parking. The spots are tight so one needs to be careful with the car doors.

Thank you so much for the amazing review! We appreciate you taking the time to write it and for all your warm words. You are right, we are always extremely concerned about the room and cleanliness- if you've looked over some of our other reviews you can see just how important that is to us. Parking wise, we do have 1 spot for all 74 of our rooms, which gives us one of the biggest parking lots in town -- you may find some of the spots near the boardwalk end have a little more room. We look forward to having you come back and stay with us and again, thank you so much for your review!

Nice hotel and close to everything

PROS So close to everything "tourist-ey". Beach, Boardwalk, bike rental, restaurants, fishing pier, etc. Very family friendly, Beach tags included with room. Pool is nice, room was EXCEPTIONALLY clean. Lots of channels on TV for when you want to unwind after the long day. CONS Could have used a few more bath towels, WIFI signal was weak, and difficult to keep connected, More pillows would be nice. (We remembered to bring our own from our previous stay)

Thank you so much for your extremely complimentary review! We love that you found the room "exceptionally" clean, that is our utmost priority. Should you ever need more towels or pillows, please don't hesitate to call the front desk, we will bring up as many as you need, or add additional to your daily supply. Again, we appreciate you taking the time to write this review and we hope you will come join us again for another stay!

Appreciate the comments -- we have 74 parking spots for 74 rooms, so every room is guaranteed a spot. Because we are so close to the beach and boardwalk, we love for our guests to be able to pull their car on to the lot for the weekend and potentially never have to use it again during their vacation! Also glad you found the rates affordable - we work hard to provide our guests with an awesome vacation at a fair price. We're thrilled you had such a good time at the Harris House. Thanks again for your review and patronage, we really appreciate it!

Great spot right off the boardwalk.

Pros: Neat, clean and right on the boardwalk at 12th Street.
Cons: Towels by the pool.
Location: Full and immediate access to boardwalk. Ocean City proper within easy walking distance. Bike and surrey rental station right across the street.
Took the grand kids (2) to the shore for the weekend. Enjoyed the ocean and the boardwalk, and had a great pool to use in the 'down' time. Rooms were clean and well maintained. Staff was accommodating. Had a great time.
