We have stayed here two years in a row. Location is great, staff is great, friendly, and accommodating. Room is clean and standard spacious; the separated bathroom/sink are is a nice touch for a family of four sharing one room.

We have stayed at The Forum in each of our three recent visits to Ocean City. The Forum is a place that I came to with my parents many years ago. It is only a block from the beach, it is run by dependable, nice people, it has a nice pool and a small restaurant that serves good breakfasts (we... More

Words can't explain how much my dad and I love staying at the Forum. My dad has vacationed in Ocean City for over 50 years and eventually stayed at the Forum every year. Then 24 years ago, when I was born, my parents took me. The trips eventually turned into a daddy-daughter vacation and it's a tradition we hold to... More

Great maid service...they do a wonderful job. Pool thoroughly cleaned every morning. Jeff (one of the owners) personally drove us to our boat reservation which we would have missed because unfortunately guests had parked behind us, blocking us from leaving. And picked us up when we were finished and had our car unblocked. I've stayed here before and I'll definitely... More

The best thing about the Forum is the location. It's one block to the beach/boardwalk and has an onsite restaurant which served delicious food. Great ice cream place next door. It's also one block from the Sindia Restaurant which we highly recommend. But the rooms severely need updating. The carpet is worn and the rooms are dark and unwelcoming. The... More

Each year, I try to get the hubby and daughter to OCNJ for Jersey shore fun and we don't always have time/funds to do a weekly house rental. The Forum is a good choice if you don't want to break the bank paying $400+/night. We always try to go the end of June and the pool is usually chilly but... More

I gave this property a 4* overall rating because the location and service were great but the property is dated and needs some updating. The property seems to be maintained AND clean but simple things like some fixture upgrades would greatly help. The location is right in the thick of things in ocean city and the property has a nice... More

Torn between 3 and 4. Not much competition in town but there are way better lodging options outside of ocnj. Excellent location near boardwalk, lunch, breakfast, shopping in town. Very clean, great maid service, friendly lobby staff. Parking is not so good. Most spots are double, so you pull to the front and if someone parks behind you, they leave... More

We loved this hotel and cannot imagine staying anywhere else in Ocean City. We are a family with kids aged 10-15 so we loved being close to the action. The front desk staff were genuinely friendly and made an excellent first impression. Our room was comfortable - nothing fancy but just what you want in a beach hotel. We loved... More

Spacious, clean rooms. Very friendly, helpful staff. They worked with us when we arrived before check-in time, allowing us to use the pool and changing rooms. Great location to the boardwalk and downtown but not noisy. Beach tags provided with the room.
