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

We stayed for three nights in the Oceana Suite which looks over the boardwalk. Beautiful views of the Atlantic Sunrise. Vicki was fabulous, very accommodating and kind. Her breakfasts were incredibly good and she was very attentive to my husband's special diet. There is always fresh coffee available (both made by Vicki and a Keurig) and cookies in the afternoons....

A classic B&B located right on the Ocean City Boardwalk just a half mile north of the major attractions. Every attention was given to making the stay pleasant, relaxing and enjoyable. Bicycles and lawn chairs available for the asking to take full advantage of the boardwalk and beach. The breakfast and afternoon cookies are something to look forward to.

The Inn on the Ocean was, by far, the best place I have ever stayed in the 58 years I have been coming to Ocean City. Our hosts, Vicki and Charlie Barrett, provided us with elegance and comfort, indulgence and nostalgia in an adults-olny setting right on the Boardwalk. Our room, the Veranda Room, was beautiful and comfortable with excellent... More

We visit Ocean City Maryland every year and 2 of us fly cross country from California each year. We are great friends- all registered nurses- and we were looking for something with more character and we have to be on the boardwalk, ocean front- and this was it! Great views, incredible service with all the amenities- beach towels, beach chairs,... More

I had a day to myself before meeting up with friends, so stayed at the BEAUTIFUL Inn on the Ocean. Loved the house and its furnishings. I stayed in the first floor Victorian Room and it couldn't have been any nicer. Loved the warm cookies in the afternoon and the yummy Eastern Shore breakfast that Vicki provided in the morning...
