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

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.
