Just got home from the best week of the summer at the Port O Call. We are ready to go again if the weather holds up after labor day! Yes, you could rent a house but most don't have pools and maid service. It's great that it's a bit away from the rides. Love the clean family friendly boardwalk. The... More

First time at the Port-O-Call and it won't be the last! Beautiful hotel, exceptional service. By far the best hotel on the Jersey shore. We enjoyed breakfast, lunch and especially dinner, just amazing. The pool was always crystal clear and the perfect temperature. Our kids loved staying right on the boardwalk and close to the rides.

What more needs to be said...the location adjacent to the beach is ideal. It's the tallest building actually on the boardwalk, just down a very small bit from the actual hustle-bustle of all the shops and eateries and convenient for the young, the active, or the aging beach-goer. The staff couldn't be more friendly and helpful, providing just the right... More

Beautiful hotel, hospitality excellent! Family friendly!! Rooms desperately need venting fans in bathrooms for condensation and other obvious reasons. Great location! Rooms are at the higher price end.

The hotel is very well located on the beach at a walking distance of the commercial boardwalk (which is very family oriented). Our ocean front room was spacious, clean and renovated. Since it's the only hotel surrounded by houses, the beach is not too crowdy. The staff is friendly and attentive.

We love OCNJ and I've been coming to OCNJ since I was a child. We can rarely get away for a whole week, so we find ourselves in the difficult position of trying to find a place to rent for a few days that is clean and comfortable. We have stayed at Watson's for years, but it has gradually gone... More

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
