This was a great place to stay. Immaculately clean and convenient to the beach/boardwalk. I read a review that said the beds were too firm...and they were a little on the firm side...but something like that is a matter of preference and I slept wonderfully. I had a bad experience with a hotel at a different shore point just last... More

The hotel wasn't anything special, it was just ok. The room needed some updating, lighting was a little dark. Other than that, the room was clean & it was in a great location, very close to the boardwalk & beach. It was also within walking distance to a lot of restaurants & ice-cream places.

We have been going to the Forum Motor for over 10 years. The service is outstanding. The staff always looks out for their guests and recommends good places to eat. Our child is two years old and there are plenty of kids for her to play with in the kid pool or the big pool. At the end of the... More

My family and I just returned from a trip to Ocean City, NJ. I planned this trip last minute and used Trip Advisor to find a hotel; we just did an overnight stay. This motel is a great place to stay for families. It truly is just one block from the beach and 2 blocks from the Wonderland amusements. The... More

We chose this hotel because of the other reviews on this site. Yes - the rooms were very clean and in good condition for a property of this age with the use it must get. This is a motor inn and not a 5 star hotel, and as long as you have that expectation you will not be disappointed. I... More

We really had a great time here. It is a family run hotel and they "care" that everything is right about your stay. The pool is great for swimmers..about 50ft. and the young kids enjoyed the kiddie pool while the older ones were in the game room playing videos and ping pong...Very clean and the coffee shop has new managagement...very...

My wife and I spent two nights here this month. The hotel is clean, its only a block away from the boardwalk and their staff is incredible. The owners care about their guests. We checked out on a Sunday and asked if we could leave our car there for a couple of hours so we could go to the beach.... More
