“Good Value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

Stayed 3 days in one of the remodeled oceanview rooms. The rooms were nicely decorated and very clean. Stayed on the top floor [ the 5th ] and the view was great. Ample parking and a nice small outdoor pool. Excellent location to the beach and access to the route 90 bridge. Room had a full sized fridge, a small sink , small stove and microwave. Rooms were very quiet and the staff was very friendly and helpful. Especially Chelsie. Would definetly stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for one of the remodeled rooms on the highest floor possible.

We stayed here September 5 - 7th. The hotel and our room was clean and friendly. It literally is a few steps to the beach. The staff (Chelsea) was great. She provided us with good tips and suggestions for our stay. While the hotel is older (character) it is not falling down or showing signs of wear. It is definitely worth staying here for a few days. The location is good and the boardwalk area is not that far by car or bus.

Dear valued guest, thanks for the great review! The Atlantic Oceanfront Inn does have great character and a "boutique" feel. The Carousel Group began managing this hotel in 2011 and has since been proud of the results and customer feedback. We do offer an exceptional location, directly on the beach and just a few steps to great dining, nightlife and all Ocean City has to offer. Thanks again for the review, and thanks for being our guest!!

Sincerely

Very nice hotel, clean, friendly staff ..We stayed just four nights and had great days at the beach.Good location for a quiet vacation, but also within walking distance of restaurants,stores,bars.and the bus to take you to the boardwalk. Our room was on the fifth floor and the ocean view was fantastic.

Not new by any means, but a very nice hotel. We stayed Monday through Friday, and many rooms were empty. Our oceanfront room, 403, was right on the ocean, beautiful view, just perfect. The staff was very friendly and accommodating, and we have no complaints. Plenty to do within a short walk, but we came for the beach, and that is where we spent most of our time. The fridge was large enough for all our supplies, the microwave was handy, and the ice machine on the first floor was always full. Our second time in Ocean City, we love the ocean and we will be back!

Room Tip: Oceanfront room was awesome, right on the ocean, no restaurant below, excellent!

My friend and I wanted an inexpensive place to celebrate our 60th birthdays for just a few-days' get-away. We want something clean, reasonably priced, on the beach, and within walking distance of food, music, and bars. We got all of this for a price we couldn't beat! Even though we were not beach front, we had a great view of not only the beach, but the bay and the beach access. We had a balcony with great views and people watching all rolled into one! We didn't have to move our car because we could catch the bus if we wanted right on the corner. The place is not a 4-star resort, but our visit was absolutely perfect for us!

Room Tip: Rooms on the beach access side have great views of the beach, bay, and people-watching.

I must say after reading some of the negative reviews I can't believe they are about this place ! We had booked our 2nd stay there, then got to reading some of the reviews, well we packed prepared with cleaning supplies and bedding. Upon arrival our oceanfront suite was ready for us, the office staff were very friendly. Our suite was clean, refrigerator was already cold, air conditioning on and the view was fantastic. During our 5 day stay the Staff was very accommodating to any and all of our requests. The location is perfect and we will stay there again.

Room Tip: If you are planning on cooking take a knife and kitchen towels.

Wanted an affordable two-day trip the beach on August 28, 2013, Check-in was available when I arrived which was terrific. The room smelled stale when I opened the door. The place is in need of an upgrade the decor. I had a great view of the ocean and a short walk to the beach that wasn't crowded.

Overall, it was a good stay. Also, I had dinner delivered from Belly Buster restaurant and it was really good.
