I cannot believe we didn't discover this beach treasure until 3 years ago! The Inn is on the Boardwalk at 10th Street, which is a quiet area, but not that far of a walk to where all the action is toward the inlet. Owners, Vicki and Charlie Barrett, welcome you into their gorgeous Inn where each room has its own... More

The owners are friendly and location is great! Common rooms are stunning. We rented the top floor ocean front room with balcony and upgraded bathroom, which was the priciest at the Inn. While comfortable, the white wall to wall carpet appeared grey in areas from dirt or stains and needs replacing. Very dingy. The outdoor balcony furniture is not nice... More

Just finished our annual long weekend visit to Inn on the Ocean with our best friends. This place never disappoints us. The breakfasts continue to be wonderful, the innkeepers are always more like family and the breeze on the porch is so calming. Just love our yearly visits. Already booked for next year again. Highly recommend a visit to this... More

I stayed at the Inn on the Ocean over July 4th weekend -- it was my first trip to Ocean City. The ambiance in the home and the personal care my family received superseded any expectations. The meals were personalized and delicious. Every detail was taken into consideration. In a place where there are thousands of visitors we were made... More

My 3 sisters and I had a lovely stay here. We rode the complimentary bikes on the boardwalk and walked to several great restaurants suggested by the Inn. Vicki cooked us a five star breakfast on Sunday morning that rivaled the Greenbrier - egg soufflé, a scrumptious mushroom, sausage ragu over a cheddar biscuit, roasted cherry tomatoes and a beautiful...

This old-style villa is located right by the boardwalk. If you can get the Oceana Suite, you will also have a perfect view of the ocean from your bed! Other rooms offer more partial sea views, but are still very nice. Our friendly hostess cooked up a tasty and varied breakfast that set us up nicely for the day. The... More

My wife and I really liked the local ownership factor. Their service to my health related conditions was nothing short of excellent. My mobility scooter even had a covered outside parking place during off season rentals. We enjoyed the small first floor room which enabled me to not have many steps to use my scooter just off the front porch.... More

This is a quirky place which seems to have many repeat customers who love it and come from hours away to recapture a certain charming boardwalk experience of yesteryear. I hesitate to give a negative review to a small place run so personally and obviously beloved by many others, but as a new customer, I'm giving it 3 stars as... More

Thank you for all your comments. Somehow this review slipped by us and we apologize for the delay in responding. Our bed and breakfast is situated in a great location. The house was built in 1930 as a summer cottage. Essentially the floor plan is the same then as now. Some of the bedrooms are large and ocean front and... More
