This hotel was in a great location, right on the boardwalk and the beach. We had easy access to the beach, restaurants, and the town. What makes this hotel so nice is the staff. Everyone we interacted with was friendly and helpful. John, the general manager, was nice, outgoing, and worked to make our stay enjoyable. He really cares about... More

This is our 5th year staying at the OceanFront. We picked it mainly for it's perfect location but have come back over and over because of John and his staff. The place is basic but always clean and being right on the boardwalk and the beach is wonderful and so convenient. We've never had any complaints and even when there... More

This was our first stay at this location and we were very happy with the accommodations. We had a slight hiccup when we first arrived because our room wasn't ready yet. We were 3 hours earlier than the advertised check-in time but had called a week earlier and were told it wouldn't be a problem. We went to grab lunch... More

For the second year in a row our family of 10 did a two-day getaway. The Ocean Front Motel gives you an Olde Ocean City experience. The motel is clean and right across from the beach. On the second day we endured rainy and windy weather. John was very helpful in suggesting places to take the kids and affordable restaurants.... More

This place is a wonderful find! It is a small motel with friendly, personalized service given by John and his staff. The rooms are basic but kept very clean. The location is unbeatable right on the boardwalk close to all the shops and steps from the beach. There are also great ocean views from the deck. And the rates are... More

It was a great stay. But I think he should add in a pool so that way if visitors don't want to go to the beach that day they can go in the pool.The housekeepers were nice and polite as well as the manager.

Ran to Ocean City for a quick getaway and the Ocean Front Motel was perfect for our one-night stay. The room was clean and the bed and pillows were very comfortable. John, our host and proprietor, was very friendly and accommodating. We were literally on the boardwalk and steps from the beach. We even got to borrow a couple of... More

Love this motel. Clean and affordable place just steps from the beach and boardwalk. Also nice view of the beach and ocean from our room. The general manager John was very helpful in recommending things to do in the city and even remembered us from our last trip. This was the 2nd year my family and I stayed there and... More

Literally a few steps from the boardwalk and beach, the Ocean Front Motel is all about location. No pool but two sundecks allow for all day exposure to sun. Rooms are basic - beds, frig, TV. Light breakfast offered is OK. General Manager is very friendly and helpful. No frills place but certainly a good value.
