I found out that I had the weekend available just over a week ago and I wanted to make a beach trip out of the weekend with the family (wife and two kids, 3 and 1.5 years old). We have been to the beach with our parents and kids once or twice, but never just the four of us. I could not find any hotel within walking distance of the beach that wasn't an outrageous price and was beginning to lose hope. Somehow, I ended up on a website about the top beaches in NJ and Ocean City was #2, with Ocean Manor B&B listed as a "place to stay." I reviewed their website, read some reviews on here and gave them a call. The price was unreal for the location and I had a feeling "something couldn't be right," as in, there must be a catch, right? Well, I was dead wrong. Sure, our room wasn't a five star resort setup and it was barely large enough for my little family, but, it worked out wonderful. I mean, it was a beach vacation, the only real utility in an accommodation is for sleeping and showering because the rest of the time is spent on the sand or boardwalk. The beds were very comfortable and the shower had great pressure, so, check and check. Everyone that worked there was so pleasant and the "community" balcony on the first floor was great for early morning coffee (Starbucks around the corner opened at 6:30) and breakfast. I am still in shock at how close we were to the boardwalk/beach and that we didn't have to pay an arm and a leg for that location. I admit, I was worried about how the weekend would turn out after reading some of the negative reviews on here, but, man, am I glad I just went with my gut on this one, trusting the positive reviews more. We will never stay anywhere else when we go on a beach trip to Ocean City, because the Ocean Manor "had us at hello!"
