Our recent visit to the Port O Call was a wonderful swan song for this summer. My mother, husband, and I were among other travelers on this Sunday-Tuesday getaway in September. Our families have always vacationed in Ocean City and we appreciate the combination of nostalgia and modern innovation that this hotel provides. The management was courteous and very accommodating,... More

We decided to mix things up on our annual OCNJ September weekend trip and stayed at the Port-O-Call. My wife has stayed here with friends during the offseason, so we knew it would be a nice place. We booked ocean view room and were high up on the 7th floor. I loved being able to just see the ocean from... More

We had a room with a balcony, which was very nice. The room was roomier than I remembered from past visits. I did not like the shampoo, conditioner & soap mounted to the wall like a Holiday Inn. Turn down service is a plus, along with juice & cookies for the kids. Room service tray never picked up from night... More

Dear Lisa, Thank you for your review! It is nice to know that you are returning guests and we appreciate your feedback. We are making strides in our efforts to become as "green" as possible. Several years ago, we decided to install shampoo/soap/conditioner dispensers in our shower/tub areas. In doing this, we were able to eliminate a massive amount of... More

Off season is the time to see Ocean City, so we spent mid-week at Port o Call. Service was very good at this elderly matron on the boardwalk. Everything is very well kept up, just showing its age. Wish the restaurant Adeline(?) was open for dinner every night. Swimming pool is nice if you don't want to walk to the... More

Great place to stay for a few days in Ocean City. The location is perfect for families. It is clean and the staff were nice. They had some nice touches like a Keurig in the room and the turn down service. The rooms are not very big, so for a week long stay it might feel too cramped, but for... More

What a great time. It was our first time in Ocean City and I did a lot of research on hotels, condo and house rentals. The Port o Call is not inexpensive, but it allowed for a very relaxating vacation. My two young girls, (7 & 10), had a blast and met lots of friends. Nice family spot. Everyone at... More

First time in OCNJ, luckily for me and my family we picked POC Hotel. Excellent location because its a short walk away from the busy part of the boardwalk. The beach was amazing because it was a lot less crowded because there were no immediate pay and park. We had the luxury of walking Just 5 mins to get to... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for your review! I hope the first time in Ocean City and the Port-O-Call will not be your last. In today's world, outstanding service is sometimes lacking and not a priority. At the Port-O-Call, we believe that customer service is the backbone to success and that is why it's so important for us maintain our high... More

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
