I like this motel very much. It has the privacy and comfort one can expect to find in a bigger hotel and the hospitality and personal attention of a B & B, with quite reasonable prices. The location could not be better, right in front of the ocean, about a block away from the commercial part of the boardwalk (therefore... More

My husband & I stayed here last year and decided we had to bring the kids back this year. We could not be more pleased. You could not ask for a better location... walking right out onto the boardwalk or onto the beach (without the big price tag). Plus, the customer service is unmatched. We arrived early, were able to... More

We could not believe this place! John, the Manager was Awesome! The location is perfect and it was so nice to be able to walk onto the beach in 10 steps. I was hesitant on booking a room at this place because of the price. Cheaper is not always better. In this case we could not have made a better... More

JOHN CAPALBO was so helpful on our stay. He helped us find resturants, let us have beach passes with a deposit which was fully refundable, gave us a safe place to park. He was so friendly....Thank you Tina

Every time I would meet someone who was staying at the Ocean Front they would say the same thing. We found a little piece of heaven. The staff and manager are the most courteous and caring folks you ever want to meet. We're going again in a few weeks and then again in Sept.

My husband and I stayed here with our 1-year old for 2 nights, mid-week, early June, so the place wasn't fully booked. Good thing b/c our next-door neighbors left their large dog alone in the room all afternoon, barking mournfully. There was no way our baby was going down for 2 naps per day with all that barking, but luckily... More

Manager John was a very arrogant and nasty man. The rooms - inside and out - were dirty. Motel was old and worn out. The parking situation was terrible. Unless you have a sub-compact car the spaces are not big enough to park. Very unpleasant experience. We would never stay there again.

I have been staying at the Ocean Front motel for the past 4 years. The location is no less then perfect. I can sit on the deck and sip my coffee in the morning wine in the afternoon and enjoy the beach and the boards. Heading down to the beach is as simple as crossing the boardwalk on to the... More
