I've been staying at the Port-o-Call since I was young and now as an adult, and I'm always pleased. The rooms are clean and updated, each with a mini fridge which is great; the location is on there boardwalk but away from the crowds and seagulls; plus there's ample parking. The new Adelene restaurant serves delicious food every day breakfast... More

What a wonderful oasis in the middle of the jersey shore. Felt like we were in the Caribbeans. Very friendly and attentive staff, clean, attractive rooms and centrally located to all of ocean city's attractions. Wish we could have stayed a little longer. Definitely will make plans to go back!

Stayed here with family for one night on last minuet notice in July 2014. This was our first time in Ocean City. Normally we try to stay in the Point Pleasant, Sea Side, LBI or Wildwood area's so we know what Jersey Shore hotels are about and what to expect. The Port O Call was a very pleasant surprise. We...

I've stayed at the Port-O-Call Hotel several times and it's a very nice, well-kept property. The hotel is close enough to the action of the boardwalk yet far enough away from some quiet privacy. The staff is extremely accommodating. The rooms are clean and well maintained. The pool area is nice and clean and has new, soft cool-decking as of... More

I grew up going to Ocean City and fondly remember the Port-o-call for their brunches we used to go to with my family when I was a kid. I decided to take my own family down for a weekend and stay here and we were not at all disappointed. It appeared that the port-o-call only hires incredibly friendly people to... More

We go to this hotel every year because we love it so much. Under this general manager, the staff are incredibly friendly and do everything they can to make our visit a great experience.

We really enjoyed our stay at Port O Call. The rooms were very clean and the service was good. Honestly I think its probably one of the best hotels in OCNJ. The location was quiet yet we walked to everything on the boardwalk. I have seen a few say Beach Club is closer to rides and all and I agree... More
