I just completed a weekend stay at the Atlantic Oceanfront Inn and I would say that this place is ok, nothing more. The main reason I choose this hotel is that I wanted to go drinking with my friends at Seacrets and this hotel was only a few blocks away, so being within walking distance of Seacrets was a big...

This is an older small hotel right on the ocean. The rooms are pretty standard with a small kitchen and 2 very comfortable beds. We had a side view room and had a decent view of the ocean from our balcony. The staff was very hospitable. We had no problem finding parking at all hours of the day/night. We did... More

We have stayed here before. A good mid week value. Definitely shows its age. Room was OK., clean and adequately equipped. Great location on 45th street right on the beach. Small but decent swimming pool. Old style air conditioners very noisy.

My son and I just got back from our much needed vacation to Ocean City. We stayed here and I have no complaints. The room and bathroom were very clean. I pulled the sheets up and checked the mattresses, they looked brand new. We had an ocean view room which was great. I don't understand the bad experience others had,... More

Personally, I do not like staying in a hotel/motel; all my life, I have rented a house. This was my first visit to Ocean City MD, which I had planned to stay with my daughter; we did stay with her for one night, when I decided I wanted to extend my 'mini' vacation, found this Inn....the room I got was...

We stayed here for 2 nights and had a memorable experience. The hotel is steps away from the beach. The rooms are more than your simple hotel room. They have a small kitchennette with cooker, fridge, microwave. You can prepare simple meals. The ocean front view from the balconies is amazing The staff were very pleasant and the hotel is... More

We stayed here for a long weekend during the off season. The staff was friendly and accommodating. We found this to be a wonderful oceanfront location and for the price we paid, feel it was a good value. The hotel is older, but the room was spacious and clean. The small kitchen center was convenient. If it were swimming season,... More

Check pricing on this if you are coming to Ocean City with family. I stayed here as part of a "block" for an athletic event and we were off season. the room was 160/night and though Ocean City IS a resort town, it was not a peak travel time and the streets of ocean city were far from populated and...

Dear valued guest, we thank you for your business and your review alike. The lobby and guest lounge were renovated a little over a year ago, but it should not appear rustic. The hotel itself is typically well received by all of our guests, it is surprising that you found your stay to be less then excellent. The Oceanview does... More

My husband and I stayed last weekend for our 15th Wedding Anniversary and to attend the St. Patrick's Day celebration. The location was perfect and the beach view was breath taking. We had a suite on the 5th floor and the walls where so paper thin that you can hear the next room opening and closing their drawers. Each door... More

Dear valued guest, we apologize for the perceived quality of your stay. We are flattered that you decided to spend your 15 year anniversary with us. We typically do not get complaints in regards to noise but our front desk staff member should have offered a room move to alleviate any of the issues you were experiencing. Additionally, we have...
