The hotel is oceanfront. The staff was friendly and accommodating. The restaurant on the bottom floor has indoor and outdoor seating and the food is very good. The hotel pool was clean and well kept. Overall we were very pleased with the accommodations.

We stayed 3 days and it was okay. All staff was very accommodating and nice. Location was great, view was great, watched dolphins from the balcony each morning, and the restaurant in the hotel, Neptune, was very tasty. There were no microwaves in the rooms, which seemed odd and limited our taking leftovers back to enjoy. There was a lady... More

All hotels are mostly beach front, this was about 240 per night with tax. We were disappointed that we couldn't check in till 4 so we stayed on the beach till then. The air conditioning work great, rooms at aS clean and shower is nice. We did purchase ed the breakfast package but not sure if it's a deal or... More

Just checked in for our long weekend stay and we are NOT off to a good start. The ladies restroom had 2 clogged toilets, which only left the handicapped, family stall available. (Not what you need after a long 5.5 hour drive 😕) We check in and our request for an upper floor couldn't be honored without true explanation from... More

My Son and I have been staying at the Oceanfront Inn every year since 1998! It is our greatly anticipated beach vacation "home away from home." Every staff member, from housekeeping to the front desk personnel, have always been accommodating, friendly and courteous. We are treated with much hospitality -- like family, friends and honored guests...The view from our private... More

I have stayed in many four star hotels but the view and sounds from our balcony were superb. This is an older hotel that has seen better days but it is comfortable and clean. We slept with our balcony door open and experienced the sounds of the ocean. The beach is inviting and clean. The sand cleaning machine runs between... More

We had a great weekend and stay. This is an older beach hotel so I didn't expect a squeaky clean room. It was perfect for our stay during sand soccer. The room was very clean and the staff were very friendly. We didn't have a chance to use the pool but it looked clean and well attended. I wouldn't hesitate... More

I selected this hotel for its location and rates - excellent beachfront location beside Neptune Park, a parking garage, indoor pool, restaurant on the first floor - and very competitive rates. Oceanfront Inn was easy to find, its parking lot easy to get in and out of. The lot isn't especially large, but the parking garage is across the street.... More
