I was with my family last year to spend a night in this place. It is not a luxurious place BUT a clean, decent and affordable place to stay right on the boardwalk. My family booked a week stay in this place again and we are all excited. I HIGHLY recommend this place.

We made last minute reservations to go to the beach, unsure of Ocean Fronts quality and were pleasantly surprised! We were a bit late checking in, however, John waited for us and was happy to help us settle in. He was kind and welcoming as was the rest of the staff. The location is absolutely perfect. Away from the busy... More

The location is fantastic! It is at the end of the board walk. Away from all the noise of the rides and games, yet close enough to stroll up the board walk and be right in the middle of all the action. A very short walk and you are on the beach. The room was a good size and very... More

Location can't be beat: right on the beach @ 14th Street, so you are a quick stroll to all that the boardwalk offers without being in the midst of its noise and busyness. Property is old, but well-maintained for the most part. We paid less than $80 for a regular room. The room was large with a microwave and frig.... More

I am not a huge fan of this hotel, rooms were clean, but dated. The facility was right on the beach, but not much in the way of facilities for a beach. Considering what was available in this town, this hotel is a good choice for comfortable and clean, but kind of boring. Would recommend if necessary to stay in... More

The Ocean Front Motel in Ocean City, NJ is a clean, comfortable place, at which we have stayed a couple of times now. Each visit was a pleasure. The general manager is very friendly and courteous, and our rooms were clean and comfortable. And the prices are great!

My husband and I just spent the weekend at the Ocean front motel with our 2 year old. We lucked out and got an ocean front room which was a pleasant surprise! The hotel was clean and the location cannot be beat. It's a very basic motel (no frills or fanciness) but it was perfect for our purposes of just... More

If you want to stay in a motel reminiscent of the way motels used to be down the shore (before the takeover of overpriced condos), Ocean Front is the place. You can not beat the location: right on the boardwalk just far enough away from the madding crowd and the beach entrance is right where you walk up the steps... More

Our stay here was really, really nice! Such a convenient location, right on the boardwalk, and right next to a beach entrance. The rooms were very clean and the owner and staff were super friendly and helpful, made us feel right at home! We will definitely stay here again the next time we come to Ocean City NJ! My family...

I wrestled between giving this an Average or Very Good rating, and settled on Very Good simply based on the fact this exceeded my expectations from what I read on other reviews. We booked a room for 2 days on a weekend in August just a few days ahead of time, got a boardwalk/ocean front room, with a parking spot... More
