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

We had a very pleasant stay at the Ocean Front in Ocean City, NJ. It truly is oceanfront! The rooms are basic, but clean and pleasant. The view is terrific, and large decks overlooking the boardwalk, dunes and ocean make you feel that you are sitting on your personal house deck, sipping a drink or having a continental breakfast, which...

We decided to book a last minute trip for just one night to Ocean City since another set of travel plans had been canceled, and I booked a room at the Ocean Front for $72 including tax (2 doubles/4 people, not an ocean view room). I decided on Ocean Front because it had access right onto the boardwalk/beach and the... More

We have stayed here two years in a row and have been extremely satisfied. The rooms are clean and accomodating and the price is right for Ocean City. The best part of our stay here has been the manager, John. He has bent over backwards to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable. We have appreciated his friendliness and his personal,... More

This hotel is ocean front. Great veiw from many of the rooms and the sundeck of the beach and ocean. Clean and comfortabe rooms. Parking is tight, but remember it is also free. John, the manager, is on site all of the time to answer any questions and/or take care of any thing. Planning on going back in early fall.

The location is the winning ticket with this hotel. Room is older but was clean and adequate. Parking is tight but doable and John allowed us to keep the car parked there for awhile after checkout. I would have used the deck area more but the smokers in the facility seemed to occupy that area quite a bit.

My family and I had a wonderful experience staying at the Ocean Front motel for the weekend. This was my third time at the motel, having stayed there in the height of summer last year and in the April off-season earlier this year. It was a great option, considering we were able to get two nights for the same price... More
