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 Despite these positives the place is pretty beaten up and out of date.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

As shared by many this motel is right on the boardwalk and convenient. The room we had was clean and met my expectations for a motel at the shore. Parking is tight but manageable. John and his staff have always been cooperative and helpful. Looking forward to another visit in 2015.

We received the reservation from Expedia and immediately sent a confirmation with all the information you need. Check-in and check-out date and time. Cancellation policy and etc. Please pay attention to that !!! When the guests arrived we did... More

This is a great location right on the beach front and at the end southern edge of the boardwalk. Easy access to the beach and an outdoor shower to rinse off before coming back inside. The only slightly odd part was the parking situation - very tight spaces and they were very particular about where we parked and the timing... More

From the moment we pulled into the parking lot, John was there to greet us and help us with everything. Could have not asked for a better stay anywhere. Steps from the boardwalk and the beach and on the quiet end of the boardwalk. Beds are extremely comfortable and our room was right next to the deck which was perfect... More

Decided on the spur of the moment to head down to the Jersey Shore. We selected the Oceanfront Motel at the south end of the boardwalk with direct boardwalk access to the beach. Hotel was somewhat dated but very clean. Office staff both upon arrival and departing were friendly and accommodating. I believe it may have been the owner on... More

This was our second visit to the Ocean Front, and have to say once again, was not disappointed. From the perfect location, to outstanding customer service it was great. Perfect location on the boards and a 2ft walk to the beach.

Very clean and right on the boardwalk! Staff was very nice...however there's no way to get ahold of them without leaving your room. There were no phones or clocks in the rooms. And the staff wasn't there at night time if you would need something. And our bathroom door didn't stay closed.
