We stayed at the oceanfront hotel with our family of four. Cannot be the location! Right on the beach. Perfect view of the beach. Rooms are clean, but a little small. Two minute walk down the boardwalk are plenty of restaurants.Can definitely see ourselves coming back in the future!

Loved our three day stay. Very clean. John and staff is friendly and helpful. Perfect location because it is right on the boardwalk and beach is steps away. Deck is wonderful for relaxing and enjoying sunshine while watching the ocean.

Close to the beach, the boardwalk, and huge variety of good food! Dots Bakery is the perfect place to purchase breakfast...every day we made our Dot's run and then enjoyed good coffee and donuts on the deck enjoying the sea breeze! The staff is pleasant and John, the Manager, goes out of his way to be helpful!

First time visiting New Jersey for my wife and I. What a great experience we had and Ocean Front was a big part of it. We had never visited a boardwalk, but had heard good things about the Ocean City Boardwalk. Location was excellent for a full beach/boardwalk experience. John and his staff were excellent, always smiling, and very accommodating.... More

Spent a few days at the Ocean Front Motel with my family, and loved it! The general manager, John, made our stay very relaxed and enjoyable, and went out of his way to help us feel welcome. Every room has an ocean view, and is literally steps away from the boardwalk and beach. The ocean view deck is an awesome... More

Upon check in I had a huge issue discerning what payment(s) had been processed through expedia for our stay. My receipts said one thing, and management had no record. It just seemed ...weird. I've never had this problem before and it was a buzzkill right off the bat. I did find the room clean and orderly. Based on reviews, I... More

Right on the boardwalk and beach. Clean, friendly and comfortable. John is very helpful. Anything you need he was there for you. They even have chairs, floats and other things they lend you for your beach day. Next time we are in Ocean City we are definitely coming back to stay.

This was our first time in Ocean City, NJ. This hotel was clean and close to everything-Boardwalk and the beach. The room had a refrigerator that came in handy to keep our toddlers drinks cold. We stayed for 3 days and have no complaints. We would come back again and would recommend it! The restaurant they had was convenient too,... More

The owner John is an awesome host. Starting with information about a place to use the restroom, shower & change& where to park for free after check out time to a place to eat within walking distance at a reasonable price. John was always kind, courteous & even helped people find a place to stay once his place was full.... More
