I think you will be fine given how far off the coast the actual eye will be. I was in an ocean front hotel on the top floor as Hurricane Bob came by OC, just about 90 miles off the coast and a very strong hurricane as it passed by (Cat 2 or low end 3). Me and the family were a bit squeemish about staying but since the projected path kept it off the coast we decided to stay. A bit of a nail biter as it progressed by but overall no real problems other than a dripping ceiling in several spots. As the eye passed by the strongest winds were blowing offshore which kept the waves/surge under control too. Overall a memorable fun weather event for this weenie. Here is a recap of that 1991 hurricane that I posted in our hurricane thread a couple of weeks ago:
"I was in Ocean City for Hurricane Bob. There were big Hurricane Warning signs erected on Rt. 50 heading into O.C. trying to persuade folks not to enter. Evacuations weren't mandatory though. It was a very strong storm for O.C. with a lot of wind driven rainfall. Our top floor condo was dripping water in a few spots from the ceiling. I think the winds were mostly offshore at the height of the storm which spared the city from major wave damage. Winds were strong and gusty. The metal railing on our balcony was making wailing sounds during the worst of the winds. Of course we had the Weather Channel on most of the time back when watching the WC was kind of cool.
Edit - I forgot to mention how cool it was watching the sky change as the storm was approaching from the south during the day. The wind and rain was mostly a late night and early morning event."
