Unprecedented impact of COVID-19 | Jackson Hotel Management's entire hotel portfolio remains open for business
UPDATE: 5/14/2020: The Holiday Inn Express & Suites Ocean City is re-opening on Friday May 15, 2020, and both Ocean City hotels will be taking business from all guests who choose to safely visit Ocean City. Welcome Back!
UPDATE: 4/3/2020: Based on the recommendation of the Ocean City Mayor's office, we have decided to temporarily close the Holiday Inn Express & Suites Ocean City effective today. The Comfort Inn Gold Coast in Ocean City will remain open and available to essential travelers only. We look forward to our leisure travelers returning soon, but for now we will only accept essential business in Ocean City, MD.
As we all face the unprecedented challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, Jackson Hotel Management would like to share that our full portfolio of hotels remains open for business. Our teams are here to help anyone in Virginia or Maryland that might need a place to stay, work, or rest; including medical professionals and other first responders working to reduce the impact of COVID-19, and industrial crews working to keep major infrastructure projects moving forward.
All of our hotels are offering flexible cancellation policies.
The public area renovations began this week at the Holiday Inn Express & Suites Ocean City in Ocean City, MD. The lobby, breakfast area, and great room flooring upgrades are in progress; as are the upgrades to the front desk and lobby convenience store. It is a small first step in a big "Formula Blue" project, but we are excited for our guests to see and experience all the changes we have in store for them.
