Great B+B. Always very clean. Nice rooms. Mr. Brown is super nice and a great host. His cooking can't be beat and there are always local treats in the afternoon as well as breakfast. They even let you use the downstairs bathroom after you check out if you need to get changed after the beach. Can't say enough good things... More

We've enjoyed staying at Brown's several times; it's become the only place we consider when going to OC, NJ., and earns and deserves the "Excellent" rating we give to all categories. Its proximity to downtown, boardwalk and beach works well as we move through our 70's. Harmon is a delight to talk with, is so gracious, and breakfast is a... More

We've been staying at Browns for 10 years. Harmon, the owner, is a kind man who is always very welcoming and interesting to talk to. The rooms are clean, and the house is only a couple of blocks from the beach. Breakfast is always great. We keep coming back because we always feel welcome here. What a lovely home... You'll... More

The family running this B&B is amazing and made sure we were fully accommodated. The 85 year old owner is full of wit and so warm. He told us to feel free to run around in the house in stocking feet and while we stayed to consider the house our home and use all the rooms. Great front porch for... More

This was our first stay at Brown's Nostalgia. We were not disappointed. It is an old fashioned bed and breakfast with clean rooms, good service, and excellent breakfasts. Our host was really friendly and hard working. Free parking is provided to the rear of the house or on the street in front. The boardwalk and beach are a short 2... More

Stayed for our 20th anniversary. Lovely home and charming hosts. We felt "at home" here and will definately be back soon! Marjorie and Harmon (the innkeepers/owners) are great hosts and fun to talk to. The room was very nice and all is clean. Close walk to the beach. Breakfast was AWESOME and the coffee is some of the best I... More

What can I say? We spend a lot of time in Ocean City and we stay with Browns Nostalgia whenever we can. We've stayed in other Ocean City B & B's but have never felt at home the way we do at the Browns Nostalgia. The first time we ....

Perfect location, a short walk to beach and boardwalk. Their beautifully maintained home was clean and comfortable. The owners (Harm & Marjorie) treated us like family. They truly love what they are doing. And the breakfasts....INCREDIBLE. We love the huge wrap-around porch where there is ample seating provided, as well as the off-street complimentary parking where you have access to... More
