The Ocean Front Motel is right on the boardwalk/ocean front. Located convenient to food, businesses, but at the same time is down the beach far enough to enjoy privacy. Everything you need for your stay and CLEAN. Manager is friendly and responds to any questions/needs promptly.

We stayed at the ocean front motel on saturday night. John the manager was great, extremely helpful and courteous. The rooms were very clean, the location is great (walk right onto the beach, and right near all the attractions. Will definitely look to stay here again and recommend to all my friends and workers.

A friend and I decided to spend the night in OC recently because of unusually warm weather. After inspecting a room at another motel that we made reservations for we decided to find some place else. We went to OC and started looking for motels that were opened. We stopped at Ocean Front and couldn't have stayed at a better... More

Every year for the last nineteen years, my family and I have been going to Ocean City, NJ for a full week or more of vacation. We stay at Ocean Front and would not consider staying at any other motel. The location of this motel is ideal. We have been staying at this hotel since the children were in strollers.... More

This is the place to be its right on the beach and boardwalk. John takes pride in his guests. There is the boardwalk right there with shopping, restaurants, and terrific site seeing. I just love being there and being and being welcomed. The rooms are worth the night stay. I will be coming back just to see John. There are... More

We stayed here on the Columbus day weekend. The location is great, right on the boardwalk and across the beach. It is on a quiet part of the boardwalk. The manager was friendly and recommended a couple of good restaurants. We had lost our car keys and the manger actually mailed them back to us. This place is not very... More

I took a chance and booked two nights after reading this place was ranked #3, found out first hand that this place was a dump. It should have been listed last. What can I tell you, parking spots were tight, rooms were cramped, bathrooms out-dated, towels were hard & old. Breakfast was a joke, stale English muffins, thrift bake goods,... More

If you're looking for a great location you can't get much better than this hotel. If you're also looking for a clean and smoke free room look elsewhere. The room was no where near as clean as it could be and although we had a smoke free room all the smoking on the deck got into our room and without... More
