(OCEAN CITY, Md.) - Ocean City Hotel Week is back to offer visitors last-chance deals on hotel and motel rates as the summer season comes to an end.

Recognizing that ever-growing people-driven economy, last year the Ocean City Hotel-Motel-Restaurant Association launched Ocean City Hotel Week. Susan L. Jones, Executive Director of the Association stated, "This program is designed to mimic Restaurant Week. It will deliver the great deals and the value that consumers have grown to expect."

This special promotion will feature free night stays and beach bargains. Along with great deals on accommodations, there are a number of free activities. When you visit in the end of the season, you will find more space to spread out your beach blanket as the crowds begin to thin. Renting a bike or taking a morning stroll on the boardwalk is the perfect way to begin your day.

Hotel Week begins on Sunday, August 28 and runs through September 11, excluding Labor Day weekend. For further information, call 1-800-626-2326, ext 2.
