Wow! Just spent a weekend at the Port O Call with a group of 80 women and we had a fabulous time. Our group has been going there for several years now because we love everything about the hotel. From the level of their professionalism and efficiency to their pleasant demeanor, every member of the staff is to be commended.... More

My wife and I love Ocean City. We were in AC to see a show at the borgata and decided to stay in Ocean City for the weekend. This hotel was great, very reasonably priced, super friendly staff, and the room service was great too! The hotel is right on the boardwalk but what we loved was that it was... More

The room was very comfortable and had a great view. Everything was very clean and all the rooms have a balcony. The location is great because the boardwalk and beach are very close. The pool is large and very clean. The service was very friendly; they let us extend our stay one night even though it July 4th.

Anyway, we contacted the Port-O-Call through the internet, and there was the perfect room: ocean front at a reasonable price. We have vacationed at... More

I grew up going to Ocean City every summer as a child/teen. The Port O Call has been around a long time, but it is in great shape. We booked a Bay view standard double since we would be arriving after dark and departing fairly early in the morning. Imagine our surprise when we opened our door and found we... More
