I loved staying here and would definitely do so again. Every single room has an oceanfront view with a balcony, which is TO DIE FOR! The room was very spacious and housekeeping was awesome. We saw our housekeeper every single day and she made sure we had plenty of towels and everything we needed. The front desk staff was great.... More

Overall was it was a decent stay. Nothing to really complain about. Rooms weren't too bad. Hotel seemed to be pretty clean. Wasn't right in the center of everything but it was walking distance. I would stay at this hotel again

Before I start I want to get one thing clear i am by no means a picky vacationer, give me a clean room and friendly staff and I'm a happy camper. I have done other reviews and feel I'm very fair. Don't get me wrong this could be a great hotel but very hard to look past its flaws. Front... More

I do not recommend this hotel. The rooms are average size and are in desperate need of a renovation. The bathroom did not look clean and had an awful odor. With the exception of one or two employees, the staff was not helpful. The location is ok. The view from the balcony is the only good thing about this hotel.

To start off the only good thing about this hotel is the location. The front desk staff was not attentive to customers . Felt as if I was bothering them if I asked a question. The rooms need updating . They were dirty and all the cleaning staff did was make the beds. There was hair in the tub ,... More

The Oceanfront Inn is indeed ocean front, located on Atlantic Avenue and 29th Street, right beside the Hilton Hotel. I agree with most of the reviews on this hotel. Yes, it's a bit dog-eared, yes, the front desk staff is not the super-friendly type you find in finer hotels, yes the elevators are slow, yes it needs a little renovating.... More

Reasonable price for an oceanfront hotel. Front desk staff wasn't friendly at all, maid services and all others were great! Wanted to extend our stay for one more night but was told by young lady at front desk there were no rooms available but during check out we were offered by another front desk employee that there was. Confusing but... More

Two weeks ago, I booked a room for one night at the Oceanfront Inn at the last minute after leaving another hotel in the area. My friend and I whom I travelled with decided to extend our trip, so I extended my stay for an additional two nights. The front desk staff was excellent, friendly, and helpful. A gentleman named...

Stayed for a week. The employees were super friendly & helpful, especially Clinton. The whole place was very clean, and the housekeeping staff did an excellent job. The location is perfect. We are already planning our trip here for next year! Only drawback: no microwave to heat up leftovers.

We have been coming to the Oceanfront Inn on and off for over 15 years. We were just there the 23rd thru the 27th and once again had a wonderful time. The location is perfect within walking distance of several free outdoor live music venues, restaurants, shops and of course right on the ocean. Neptune's, which is the restaurant inside... More
