  3. Hello, I’m looking to relocate from Fayette County, Pa to Berlin, Md. There is my Fiance and 12 year old daughter and myself. I have heard that some hotels will allow you to stay at the hotel while you work there. I was wondering if there are any hotels in ocean city or around ocean city that might be hiring that may help with housing? I have experience in housekeeping, waitress and as a cook. I also worked other jobs as well. My fiance is multi talented. He can work security, construction, electrical work, plumbing, lawn care, etc. Any advice would be greatly appreciated… Thank You!!
