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

Stayed for 2 nights last week of June. Needed a hotel with pool for a quick getaway to the shore before the rush of peak season. People at the front desk were nice, friendly, and welcoming. Check in was quick and room was ready when we arrived. Carpet was clean, bedding was clean. Looked like new comforters no stains or... More

We have been coming to the Forum for a long time in June before the prices explode. (We are on a fixed income :). Great service and greater owners. Love it here. 1 block to the beach & a central location.

We have gone to the Forum almost every year for the last 10 years and they never disappoint. Close to the beach/boardwalk with a restaurant on site that now serves poolside. A great respite after a long day at the beach

We just returned from our annual OCNJ vacation and stayed at the Forum for the third time. This motel is a true gem and a flashback to an earlier time. Despite the age of this property, it is beautifully maintained and as clean a place as I've ever stayed. We met all three siblings, who are second generation owners of... More

My family had a wonderful stay at this motel. It offered everything a motel should. Mini fridge, microwave, good location, comfy beds & clean. Oh, and don't forget the pool. If you need someplace clean to lay your head down after a long day at the beach, this is it!
