Our first time staying at this hotel. We were not disappointed. The hotel was very clean and accommodations were second to none. Outdoor pool was clean and enjoyable. The restaurant in the hotel was impeccable and reasonably priced for being a resort. We will definitely book another vacation there. Thanks

Loved the we could let your teenagers walk the boardwalk with no problem. The hotel is clean, beds were comfortable and loved having a balcony. We... More

Great property. Looking forward to a longer stay next time. This hotel is lovingly improved on the off season and it shows! It is in perfect condition. Every room has a great view. We attended an event in the redone Adelene Restaurant. Views, food and staff all enjoyable! Wifi spotty, only constructive critique I can think of.

Port O Call is a large pink 9+ story hotel on the Boardwalk toward the southern part of Ocean City NJ. The staff appears mostly from Croatia and are friendly and attentive. The pool is well maintained and the ocean just on the other side of the boardwalk. Beach passes are included with your fee and you can obtain additional... More

House keeping spotty as well. Checked in to find a spoon from the restuarant left in a drawer from a previous guest, spoon still there three days later. And housekeeping is slow.... More

We had a wonderful time during our recent stay - Sunday, August 2 until Wednesday, August 5. What a surprise I got upon checking out to find a daily resort fee of $12.50. No where in the info sent to me mentions this charge. The checkout lady said it was for use of the pool and Wi-Fi??

Really excellent stay from start to finish. Our room was ready upon arrival and while the room isn't overly large its plenty of space for a family of 3 or 4. The beds were very comfortable and the bathroom is nice and clean with a good sized shower. The one minor issue I had was the sink was so low... More

We went for a long weekend, a family trip with several members of our family. The rooms were spacious and very clean, staff very friendly as well. We definitely felt the prices were reasonable. Great Boardwalk for walking, biking and for the kids to roam on, also very clean. Lots of places to eat.
