This is a quirky place which seems to have many repeat customers who love it and come from hours away to recapture a certain charming boardwalk experience of yesteryear. I hesitate to give a negative review to a small place run so personally and obviously beloved by many others, but as a new customer, I'm giving it 3 stars as... More

Just returned from another wonderful weekend at the Inn. My husband and I have stayed at the Inn for 10+ years and it is always fantastic. Our room was immaculate as all the rooms are. The owners, Vicki and Charlie, always make sure their guests are happy. They are just a wonderful couple and will do whatever they can to... More

Beautifully decorated home with formal furnishings & antiques creating a homey feeling. Breakfast is the highlight of the day- hearty & gourmet. You won't need lunch & maybe just a light dinner. Most of the guests we met have been coming back for 15 years or more! The home is non-smoking & no kids. Beach towels, beach chairs & bicycles... More

We are always welcomed and feel so at home relaxed. Many stays and more to come! The breakfasts are well worth getting up. The porch is a haven to wind down a super day on the beach. The Inn is so comforting to return to after a day full of entertainment. We love you, Vicki & Charlie!

We attended a wedding here. Vicki and staff could not be more helpful and gracious. Right on the boardwalk, steps from the beach. Food was interesting and special. Well prepared and nicely served. Furnished in Victorian period. Lovely sitting room with fireplace. Large porch to sit and rock! A treasure to enjoy for a short get away or long stay.

We stayed here 3 years ago and had a wonderful vacation. So, we returned on Labor Day weekend. We stayed in the same room and were pleasantly surprised with the upgrades in the bath. Parking is at a premium and the reserved spaces for the inn are difficult to negotiate. We had a friend stop by to visit us at... More

Ocean City, MD was always my "go-to" beach growing up. I have so many good memories...I hadn't been back in at least 15 years and decided to take my honey for his birthday...wanted it to be special. After doing a little looking around, I decided on this place--such a lovely location, right on the boardwalk! It was perfect for us--I... More

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.

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
