“Not bad for off-season”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2012

My wife and I stayed in early May 2012 for 2 nights. The rooms are clean, the staff is very friendly, and the location is nice. The beds and pillows are not comfortable at all as the review below noted. The price was reasonable for this time of year but I would never pay the prices I see listed for the summer.

We stayed this September for several days in room 223. The first thing, there was a discarded
bloody band-aide in the shower, the toilet keep running, the area carpet had large stains on it,
and the curtains had holes in them and the floor lamp was falling apart. The positive,the pool was warm, George's breakfast spot just up on the boardwalk is great, the hotel is in good location, but I guest some of the owners furnish the rooms better than others,this room needed work. Try and stay away from the lobby, mechanical noise.

This is our 5th year at Ocean 7 which is located (literally) steps from the 7th street beach and boardwalk. We stay over Labor Day week when the crowds are less and we always stay in an "ocean peek" room, which has a good view of the ocean. The staff is wonderful and we cherish our yearly mugs which have our names, dates of stay, and name of hotel. The hotel is near all the boardwalk attractions and eateries. The room (2 double beds and a small kitchen area) is a little small, though, with not much room between the bed and closet. The bathroom is small, but adequate.
They have a different system for tipping the housekeepers. Most people are accustomed to leaving a tip for the person who is going to make up the room, but at Ocean 7 there is an envelope with the maid's name on it and the tip is supposed to go to the maid who already did the room for "today." Since they change maids, I guess this makes sense.
We have every intention of staying at Ocean 7 each time we are in Ocean City. When we walk back to our room, we always comment about how Ocean 7 is the perfect location and how happy we are that we decided to stay there.

Room Tip: An "ocean peek" room is cheaper and gives a great view of the ocean.

We’ve stayed several years and twice this summer. The accommodations are excellent and the staff is outstanding. The location is great; not only is it close to the boardwalk, but to the big attractions: music pier, wonderland pier and George’s, a great breakfast spot. We’re making it our place to stay in Ocean City.

We just returned from our trip to Ocean City, New Jersey, as usual we hated leaving ! Our stay at Oceans 7, as always was EXCELLENT. Stephen greeted us by name, It was our 4th time there. The room was immaculate ( we always request rm #320 ). My son has reservations for next week, it will be his 4th time there as well. God willing we will be back next summer.
