Directions

The Holiday Inn is on the Coastal Highway at 66th St.  You may reach it by travelling down the Coastal Highway from Delaware, or by travelling east on US 50 from the Chesapeake Bay Bridge.  If you are taking the latter route, enter Ocean City on MD Rte. 90, not US 50. Rte. 90 crosses the inlet just below 60th St., whereas US 50 crosses below 1st, giving you a long ride north through the heart of OC.
