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

The Ocean Front was perfect for what we needed - three days and two nights of beach and boardwalk in beautiful Ocean City. For the price (we took advantage of a 20% discount by booking on-line 2 weeks before), we were very pleased with our ocean front room. I brought my large SUV, was fortunate to find a spot immediately... More

Stayed with family for 2 nights in August. "John" was not friendly or accomodating at all. He spoke to us with an attitude. Parking was a nightmare and we were afraid to move our car after squeezing it into the parking lot. The room was dirty. The bedspreads had dried gum, cigarette burns, and red stains (possibly blood?). The bathroom... More

My sister-in-law, Gayle, my son, Derek, and his wife, Susannah and I stayed at The Ocean Front Motel the weekend of 7/24-7/27. Gayle and I returned the weekend of 8/1-3. We only chose the Ocean Front Motel because the manager, John Capalbo, had returned. Everything was just GREAT. John certainly made our stay delightful. Gayle came all the way from... More

The trip started with a terrible parking situation. Good Luck with that. Went to get the free baked goods for breakfast. Disgusting!!! Even had to climb over a motorized something or other to get to the table if I wanted to eat. (which I did not - went out to breakfast each day) Went back to the room to make... More

How this Motel is ranked 3rd for Ocean City is beyond my comrephension. We also stayed in Ocean City for the weekend of July 23-26, 2009. IT IS BAD. No other way to put it. When we booked our reservation over the phone, John told us Friday night would be $130 + taxes and Saturday night would be $190 +... More

The Ocean Front Motel did not meet our expectations for a $300 plus ocean front room in any way whatsoever. When we arrived for a two night stay on July 22nd there was only one parking spot left and I could tell we were in for a rough time. If I pulled into the spot the only way out of... More

He is exceptionally serviced oriented and friendly. The location is fantastic, right... More

While looking to do a quick night away with the kids in Ocean City, I decided to check out the Ocean Front Motel based upon the positive reviews on tripadvisor. When I saw that the motel was offering a 50% off special up until July 4th, I figured I'd take the plunge. We arrived around 2:30m pm and saw only... More
