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

We stayed here for a family vacation. The hotel is tired but clean and the staff were always helpful. While we didn't expect the Ritz at this price point there were some issues that we didn't expect; there were nasty sharp exposed bolts all along the bottom of the door that we had to stop our youngest from stubbing her...

After an average experience of another USA Motel, we were not quite sure what to expect this time. But we were pleasantly surprised! We had a nice and clean room. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Its also great to be right at the Boardwalk, but away from the noisy places closer to the centre. They have free Beachtags... More

It's tough to beat the location of this motel! Right on the boardwalk, where all the action takes place. The room I stayed in was nice and clean. Only concern that I had was with the tub, which was discolored (shades of yellow), but I'm sure clean. No mildew smell, which is common at some of these places so close... More

The place was clean and had very good simple accommodations. If your are expecting high end, fancy, this is not the place for you. Just go elsewhere!The accommodations are simple, clean, and with a simple, but pleasing feel. Don't expect a pool, a breakfast with a lot of 'extras', or 'dressed up' staff. This is a BEACH environment, with: close... More

This motel is in a great location. It is on the boardwalk, yet away from the noise of the attractions. The price was good for this time of year. The rooms were clean. The hotel is very tired looking though. The furniture is old and mismatched., especially on the 2 decks The ice machine is a cooler in front of... More

The motel has a great location with direct access to the NJ board walk. There are also sunning decks on the front and back of the building . Despite these positives the place is pretty beaten up and out of date. The rooms are very small. The interior of the room needs a ton of work. Our AC made an... More

This place was very nice as others have stated. Very good location. Room was nice, air conditioner was a bit weak in my room. No pool for those who have children, but with the beach so close my daughter wasn't concerned with the missing pool. No elevator and was tired climbing steps with beach items, but it was good exercise.... More
