Just came back from a weekend at the Inn on the Ocean with another couple. This was our 8th successive year. Not much has changed in that time - which is a great thing. The location is superb, the front porch is so relaxing (there is always a breeze), the rooms are very nice and the breakfasts are wonderful !... More

Leny and I enjoyed a wonderful weekend at the Inn. The minute we entered the house we were filled smiling faces and warm welcomes. The rooms are spectacular and morning breakfast to out of this world!!! Vickie and hubby make you feel as though this IS YOUR HOME. It is on the boardwalk but you never feel like you are... More

We live a half an hour away from Ocean City, and visit there fairly often. We had noticed this gem of a property along the boardwalk and have had it in mind to stay for some time now. We finally made room in our schedule and spent two nights there this week. We stayed in the Oceana Room - the... More

We actually went in June 2014 but that was not an option to select above. Overnight for couple time. Great stay as usual. We got married there in Nov. 2007 and renewed vows in Nov. 2012. The wedding and renewal visits were amazing. The owners treat us very well and seem truly interested in our family. Always a great stay,... More

This is the third time I've been to this cozy B & B in the Veranda Room, with its private veranda right on the boardwalk and a perfect view of the ocean. The owners are so friendly and accommodating. They provide everything you might need for the beach, including bikes for the beach walks or sidewalks. Gourmet breakfast is included,... More

I always read the reviews carefully - especially the poor reviews. For this stay I read some older reviews about the rooms not being well maintained. I thought that since they were older reviews that the inn keepers would've fixed. I was wrong. The bathroom floor in one room was coming up. In the more expensive room the molding was... More

There is no excuse for our rooms not being up to your expectations. We do apologize. Our housekeepers really try to be sure everything is spiffy. I need to be more conscientious in checking the rooms. Occasionally, the steam in the shower will loosen the wallpaper. I think it might be time to reevaluate wallpaper in the bathrooms. If you...

This is the only oceanfront B & B in O.C. Very nicely set up with two oceanfront rooms (Expensive in the summer..Perfect for winter ocean watching) and 4 other rooms off the ocean. All rooms with new bathrooms (ours had a Jacuzzi tub) and nicely furnished. Very nice front parlor and dining room. Vickie was so sweet and serves a... More

Thank you for your review. So many of our guests make new and lasting friends. We even have guests who now travel together. All the rooms are great but I have to agrre that the oceanfront rooms are my favorites too. Though the Tapestry Room with the new multiple head shower is a close second. Come back soon. More

We've visited this B & B twice and can't wait to go back. The location is outstanding right in the heart of the boardwalk yet you don't feel like a sardine in a cheap Boardwalk hotel. The rooms are very nice and well kept, the owners are kind and inviting, and the food - amazing! My one tip would be... More

A winter getaway is always restful. Thank you for your kind words. Spring is upon us, Breakfast is now served on the oceanfront porch and the dolphins swim by almost daily. Come back soon for another visit. Returning guests are offered a 15% discount before June 22! More

We just finished our Thanksgiving stay at the Inn. The owners were very responsive via e-mail and I was able to ask questions to them beforehand. Vicki was very welcoming throughout our visit and I saw maybe three people helping her throughout the time we were there. Her husband is honestly, a bit grumpy and I think unable to do... More

A charming respite on the boardwalk in Ocean City, Maryland. Old fashioned rooms and hospitality. Vicky is a fabulous cook. I've been coming to the inn a long time and each time I'm amazed of her breakfast creations. You don't even know you are on a busy, bustling boardwalk except when you lounge in the wicker rocking chairs on the... More
