Updating my prior review, before I get there tomorrow, for a two night stay. The person on the desk was very friendly. They are again running a three night special after Labor Day weekend. Since I was only staying two nights I did not qualify for that rate. However they gave be a rate almost $20.00 per night less expensive... More

Been staying at the Forum many years and the staff is the best! Always free to help and give advice on where to go and where to eat. Clean rooms, yeah place is old but clean and that's important to me. Will be coming back in future years.

My first time at OC New Jersey. The rooms were about as clean as one could hope for in an older motel, so that was a big plus. The interior needs some updating, in my opinion. Nothing in it says (or even whispers), 'I'm on vacation at the beach.' Also, the windows and doors are poorly insulated, so a lot... More

The Forum Motor Inn, in Ocean City New Jersey is a good choice for a family vacation. The rooms are very clean and equipped with a large safe for your valuables. The pool is a very good alternative to the beach, which is only a short block or two walk. The Inn has an excellent restaurant which serves breakfast, lunch... More

We have been coming back to the Forum Motor Inn for many years with my children/grandchildren. We love it! It's a fabulous location - a block from the beach right in between the two piers. Even though it's near the action - it's a very family place so not noisy and crazy as some places are. There is a wide... More

We have stayed at other properties in OC and this was the best. We did a quick last-minute stay and I am so happy we were able to get a room. The staff was VERY accomodating. We got in very early and even though we could not check in, they gave us beach tags and a parking pass as well... More

Stayed here over 4th of July weekend. Was a great location - only a block from the boardwalk and beach. Free parking for 1 car per hotel - which is great. We parked our 2nd car a couple blocks away. Wish this hotel and others would give the number of beach tags with the number of people registered, but the... More

The Forum Motor Inn is a great place for a family weekend in OCNJ. Great location, friendly staff, exceptionally clean and well cared for. You don't go to Ocean City looking for a tall, chain hotel, you go there so you can give your family the same memories you had as a child and the Forum Motor Inn is happy... More

My husband and I stayed for three nights last week for the first time. The staff at the front desk is very pleasant and helpful. Our room was a King room on the third floor. The woman who booked our stay said this would be private and quiet, and it was. The beds are VERY comfortable. The bathroom is small,... More
