The Oceanfront has the feel of a quaint throwback to the 50's but, with important adjustments for today. The room was small and well cared for. The bathroom is tiny by more modern standards but, it works. This is not a 3D printer motel/hotel. It has distinct personality with lots of surprising little touches.Whoever oversaw the tiny details did a... More

There is a smell is the elevators, not as strong as last year's trip, but not enough to keep us from booking next year. Maid service is the best. Those ladies and the male porter... More

The bar and restaurant are really bad but they don't run or manage them. But there are many other placed to eat and drink within minutes on the boardwalk. The rooms have always been clean... More

As this was our first visit to Ocean City, we were no sure where we would be on the Boardwalk. It was a perfect location. Just a nice walk to the Pier and lots of shops and restaurants along the way. The hotel was clean and had a spacious lobby. We did have breakfast several morning at the hotel restaurant.... More

I took my mom and daughter to OCMD for Mothers Day and couldn't be happier with our stay! We arrived early and they switched our room so that we could check in early. The staff was very friendly and accommodating! Our room was super clean and very comfortable. We visit OC at least once a year but this was our... More
