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.

Can't beat the location, right on the boardwalk, at the end of the commercial part of the boardwalk, and the price was what you'd expect to pay at a super 8 type motel miles from the beach. It was clean, the staff were friendly but everything was very dated. It all worked, but no coffee in the rooms, the ice... More

There is nothing negate I can say about our experience here. Very helpful, very clean room, wonderful wonderful view of the ocean! Directly on the board walk. This was by far the best place we vacationed for our 2 weeks that we were traveling! Keep up the great work!

We had a sleepy 2 year old in the car who needed a change and a nap. While check-in time was 3:00, we wound up getting there earlier than expected - at 12:30. While our room was expectedly not ready, the staff was more than accommodating in giving us an identical room that we could check into 2 1/2 hours... More

Clean and comfortable rooms with great TV. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The parking is undercover so the car does not get too hot. The days we stayed turned out to be rainy so we were in the room a lot of time but it wasn't bothersome. When possible, we did go out on the sundeck and enjoyed... More

Clean, affordable and exactly what we were looking for during our last minute trip to the beach. We made reservations the same day we needed them and even arrived very late (after midnight) and the manager was very accommodating. Semi-private showers outside the room to rinse off the sun and sand was perfect for our 3 and 4 year olds... More

Great location, and clean rooms. Owner/Manager, John is awesome! Large sundeck facing ocean, right on the boardwalk. Better rates than other motels in Ocean City. I have stayed a few different times and have reservations to visit again in October!!

We were extremely pleased with the location and cleanliness of this hotel. The owner was so nice to my son, sharing in his excitement of being at the beach and boardwalk. He was always around making sure everyone had what they needed. The parking is great. We had a perfect stay.

I have at stayed at Ocean Front several times over the past few years and have always enjoyed my stay. This is an older motel but is in great shape and maintained very well. The staff is very welcoming and friendly. In the off season pets are allowed at no extra charge. The location is so convenient being right at... More
