I came down for a quick and relaxing stay in Ocean City. I had never seen the town before and it is a very nice place to visit. It rained the first day but I managed to walk the entire commercial part of the Boardwalk and the downtown, which are right near the B & B. The location is just... More

We needed a vacation and are too busy to take time off, so we decided on one night down the shore. We found a room at the Northwood Inn and have never been happier. Marj and John were wonderful inn keepers, I could ramble on about the peaceful rooftop deck and the amazing home-cooked breakfast, but what made this inn... More

The B&B was most comfortable and extremely clean and well maintained. We especially enjoyed the roof top veranda in the morning and evening with views OC and the ocean. It was relaxing to have breakfast up there or relax in the evening with a good book and some refreshments. The hosts were very kind, accommodating, and suggested other points of... More

The Northwood Inn is a charming bed and breakfast and the owners make you feel right at home. They made delicious, home-cooked breakfast (walnut french toast with bacon and banana bread - yum!) and set out cookies in the afternoon. The owners were friendly and helpful. They provided us with beach tags and offered us beach towels and bikes, at... More

It had been many years between visits to the Northwood Inn in Ocean City, NJ, But we were pleased to find that NOTHING had changed between visits. That's part of the charm in OCNJ! It's like a step back in time. Marj & John greeted us with warm smiles and chocolate chip cookies! The rooms are immaculate & cheerful. Breakfasts... More

Nice B&B within walking distance of the beach. Owners are very accommodating and attentive to your needs. The breakfast was out of this world. The extras that are included is very nice. Beach passes, use of bikes and a common fridge, parking was easy and access in and out was never an issue. We will definitely be back to visit... More

The lovingly restored Queen Anne home was beautiful and restful. Marj and John served a wonderful breakfast (loved the blueberry pound cake with lemon glaze!) before we set off on their complimentary bikes for a ride on the boardwalk. At the end of the day we relaxed on the rooftop patio. We can't wait to return!

This was the first get a way we have had in years. Almost forgot how easy going and family like these two sweet Innkeepers are. Their home is relaxing and very clean. We watched the sunset on the rooftop and we were up there 6 am as well. Our room had a king size bed which we appreciated and very... More

John, Marj and Coakley(dog) were very friendly and accommodating. The house was very inviting and we had a great stay. Hung out on the porch a bit at night after walking around. If I make it back to oc, we will definitely stay here again. There are many bikes to choose from if you want to ride the boardwalk in... More

My dad flew in for the weekend and needed a place to stay. He usually enjoys bed and breakfast like environments but with the plethora of options he was a little overwhelmed with the choices. He finally chose to go to Northwood Inn and we both agree that it was a great choice and the best choice! We stayed in... More
