We just returned from our annual OCNJ vacation and stayed at the Forum for the third time. This motel is a true gem and a flashback to an earlier time. Despite the age of this property, it is beautifully maintained and as clean a place as I've ever stayed. We met all three siblings, who are second generation owners of the Forum, and they all place a high priority on service. As noted by others, the mattresses are a bit firm, although that is to my liking. The on-site cafe is wonderfully convenient and will even deliver lunch to you poolside! The location is perfect; just one block from the boardwalk. We started each day at the Ocean City Bicycle Center, located just across the street. When we returned, housekeeping always had readied our room. My only complaint would be the very narrow parking stalls. They are way too small for most vehicles.
We look forward to staying at the Forum and hope to do so for many years. Great place.
