My fiancé and I stayed here for a long weekend at the beginning of September. This is a lovely little hotel. Great location, great view from our room, and clean. Beach access was great. The only thing is parking would likely be challenging to find during the busy season, as parking spaces seemed a bit limited.

2nd time staying, will not return, 2 burners on stove didn't work, refrig/freezer stunk terribly of fish, smell absorbed into food, maid service was lousy, i.e. took wash cloths and didn't replace, had to call front desk, took dish cloth didn't replace, asked her for a new one, said she didn't have any, never bothered to get one, had to use paper towels for dishes. also don't seem interested in rewarding returning guests in any way. will stay elsewhere in the future.

Room Tip: stay on 5th floor

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!!

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!
