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

The rooms were very clean with a closet and room for luggage. We also asked for a rollaway bed which was provided at no extra fee. There was a cafe attached to the hotel which was very convenient and also provided food to go. Later in the day, I saw they provided poolside service. Our room had a small refrigerator... More

We've stayed at the Forum several times over the past ten years. The fact that we returned says that we liked it. The staff was friendly and the rooms were neat and clean. The hotel is close to the beach and the downtown area. It does tend to get crowded during the summer, so plan ahead.

We needed a place for 1 night at the beach. I choose this place based solely on the ratings from tripadvisor and price. Ocean City, NJ doesn't have any chain hotels to choose from so its hard to know what you are getting into. The location is within a short (5 minute) walking distance to the beach and boardwalk and...

I have stayed at this particular hotel for 3 summers and I have been totally impressed with the accominations, pool, cafe, parking, and staff. Holly, Merideth, and the other gentlemen at the front desk as well as the house keepers are excellent at their jobs and they are always friendly, professional, and willing to do whatever the customer needs. They... More
