Historical Traveler Reviews Harrison Hall Ocean City
We stayed there several years ago and it was so bad we checked out, forfeited our money, and went to the motel next door...I hardly know where to begin...it was absolutely filthy..even found a cigarette butt on the floor...my daughter had her train case stolen containing "personals" plus her brand new roller blades and all of her cd's...our door was locked all the time!! Had to call the police...didn't receive an apology from the management ...they said nothing and tried to claim that we left the door unlocked..although we had our suspicions on who took the stuff, there was no proof...I wouldn't stay at this place again if they paid me!!!!!!!! If you go, beware...remember..you get what you pay for and it's no bargain...don't let the internet pictures fool you like they did us...they only photograph the front porch...try Phillips a few blocks down!!!
We had the misfortune of staying here 2 summers ago. We had reservations for a week, stayed 3 nights when we FINALLY found a room elsewhere.
This was the filthiest place I've EVER stayed. I was afraid to walk on the carpets without shoes.
The service was horrible and we had a theft from our room from one of the maids.
We weren't expecting much as the rates were cheap, but we were at least expecting somewhat clean.
Would NEVER return...would rather sleep in our car.
I stayed may 22, 2004 and I paid alot of money and received a room the size of a closet and a huge hole in the wall right next to my bed with a old tv and alot of noise .Very bad experience
Nice place to stay
We stayed at the hotel in August 2003 and loved it! The rates were great, the staff was very polite and helpful and the location was worth it's weight in gold! We plan to return the second week in May 2004 and love the chairs on the front porch. We don't spend much time in our room when we're there and think it's very affordable for the location.
this was a tipical beach front hotel it was built in the 1950's what does people expect!!!!if they want ramada they should have stayed there and paid that rate.
Not too bad!
Harrison Hall has wonderful staff who are eager to help when needed.
Although the hotel does need some work, it is clean and quiet. We have stayed their for almost 3 years now during both the May and Oct. car shows, as well as Springfest and Sunfest. For anyone not worried about staying in a 5 star hotel and want a cozy room, this is the place for you.
have to agree with this rating, we checked in and immediately checked back out...carpets were filthy...suppose the lobby should have made us aware...
Disgusting, horrible, what a complete dump!!!
Gross, gross, gross! Anyone who stays there has been had - by their deceiving web site and by their pamphlet that must have been about some other place. My husband, daughter and I had the unfortunate experience of staying there last year. Dirty sheets, TV whose color was basically orange no matter what you watched, rug stained with something we really did not want to identify, bathroom that would have made ANY truck stop look like a palace, elevators that were so old it took minutes to get anywhere. The room was so incredibly tiny it wasn't even funny. And we had even paid the high price for a "ocean view." What a joke! If we opened the window all the way and craned our necks out, we could almost see through the black panes and filthy screens. The great pool, well, I hope you like sitting on the cement, because we could not find one lounge chair that was not broken. Hey, it could have been worse though: we met some people who had a flea infested room. If you are thinking about staying here --DON'T, DON'T, DON'T!!! I wish I had read about this place before. It should be criminal to rent a place like this!
We had been planning a family vacation for some time and were so excited to take my parents for thier first trip to the ocean. Thanks to the decieving pamphlet for Harrison Hall, our vaction was a nightmare.
Walking into the first floor, we immediately knew we'd been had. It was filthy, it stunk, and got even worse when we checked into our rooms.
The lights did not work, the toilet got stopped up the first time we used it. The room stunk so bad I had to go out and by fabric refresher just so we could stand it. The volume on the T.V. did not work right.
The bathrooms are tiny with a very small shower that had NO hot water and the shower curtains were covered in mildew. The sheets wre not changed during our stay and everytime we walked out the door there was trash sitting in the hallway, and it piled up and stayed there the WHOLE weekend we were there. I would'nt recommend this place to a family of RATS. It was absolutely HORRIBLE!!!!!!!!! If there was a -10 rating this place would get it.
Too bad one star is as low as you can go. Just returned from staying at Harrison Hall. The rooms look like they have never been re-furbished since the hotel was built. We had no hot water for showers, a trickle of a shower, antique plumbing, water dripping in the ceiling (from somewhere), paper thin walls, carpet 50 years old, loud ac (which only worked if it was on high cold), and an elevator small enough for 2 suitcases that took 10 minutes to travel 2 floors. Never again..........................

10'x15'... the past 5 years, 2 bedrooms and 4 floors of our home is now crammed into a one cinder-block cell, the mail has been stopped (doubt I'll miss it) and tenants who will be kindly paying our mortgage for the next 12months are now moved in and we're officially "homeless".
Bethany Beach is where we'll be calling home for the next few weeks, until we jump out on the road at the end of July.
I could think of worse places to lay-low for awhile.
... cookies we put down the windows, and preceded to take turns napping in the car. It was quiet, and we had a great breeze off the ocean. To many late nights, and missed sleep are starting to catch up. By now it was time to go check in at our hotel. We unloaded the car, and left again to go visit Assateague Island Lighthouse. It was one of the nicest lighthouses we've seen thanks to fresh paint in the last year. After driving around the wildlife refuge we ended ...
We got up this morning hoping to get in a couple of tours today. We managed to get on a 10:00 nature bus tour on Assateague Island. We went to a back area to the north side of the island to see some of the wild ponies. The return trip was the most entertaining when we rolled up on a group of ponies as two were going to town trying to expand the herd. Explain that to the children. As we left the sex show we encountered a ...
... that I have such supportive friends and family who encourage me to get out and explore!
So as I continue packing today and tomorrow, I'll be thinking about the adventure I'll be having this semester, and about the wonderful friends and family I have who are just as excited and nervous as I am. And don't worry, I am bringing lots of pictures of you guys with me as a constant reminder of how much I love you all and how awesome you all ...
The next day, we take Woody on a field trip to the Dogfish Head Brewery located in Milton, DE where my brother lives. Heading into Rehoboth, we find our favorite "Happy Hour" restaurant “Claws” is closed for the season. So we head over to its sister restaurant “Fins”. We dive into a bountiful selection of fresh Oysters on the half shell. ...
