Ocean City, MD

Holiday Inn

The Holiday Inn and Suites located on 17th Street in Ocean City, Maryland is a 14-story oceanfront hotel on the
Boardwalk. The massive building features 210 guest suites, each offering a full kitchen and luxury bathroom with
Jacuzzi bathtubs. There are indoor and outdoor swimming pools, restaurants, a health and fitness center and
game room. Gillis Gilkerson constructed this hotel in three phases, overcoming a number of logistical challenges

What Our Clients Say

“The building is 100 years old and has continued to deteriorate for the last 40 years. To be honest, I wasn’t very positive about trying to save the building in the beginning.I thought it was a waste of time and money. When Gillis Gilkerson started working with our engineers and demonstrated experience with this type of project, I was relieved to say the least. They had contractors lined up and everything went according to plan. I would be tickled to work on another project with Gillis Gilkerson.”

~ Bob Donnelly,
Snow Hill Public Works Director

“The original roof was only seven years old so finding out that we needed a whole new roof – the hard way – was disappointing. The team from Gillis Gilkerson addressed every single concern we had from the very beginning. They even called me on July 4th when we had bad storms in the area and asked if they could get inside the church to make sure everything was safe and secure. Now that’s commitment.”

~ Bruce Glisson,
Executive Pastor,
Allen Memorial Baptist Church
