So many try to create a warm and friendly atmosphere. At Browns it just seems to come naturally. This charming B&B is conveniently located near everything in Ocean City and within walking distance of the family's iconic boardwalk restaurant and its much-storied doughnuts. I now feel as if my family has a place "Down the Shore," because now I do.... More

We stayed at Brown's for a long weekend in July for my husbands birthday and although it rained almost the entire weekend, we still had a wonderful time. The room (we were in room 8) was small with a queen bed and bathroom but we had enough room to put our luggage and all our things. It was very clean!... More

Stayed at Brown's during a short vacation to Ocean City 15-19 Jul 2014. We liked it because it has a feel like you are staying in someone's private home as opposed to staying at a B&B with other transient people. Mr. Brown and his family (three or so adult children/in-laws and at least one adult grandchild that work at the... More

Great B+B. Always very clean. Nice rooms. Mr. Brown is super nice and a great host. His cooking can't be beat and there are always local treats in the afternoon as well as breakfast. They even let you use the downstairs bathroom after you check out if you need to get changed after the beach. Can't say enough good things... More

We've enjoyed staying at Brown's several times; it's become the only place we consider when going to OC, NJ., and earns and deserves the "Excellent" rating we give to all categories. Its proximity to downtown, boardwalk and beach works well as we move through our 70's. Harmon is a delight to talk with, is so gracious, and breakfast is a... More

We've been staying at Browns for 10 years. Harmon, the owner, is a kind man who is always very welcoming and interesting to talk to. The rooms are clean, and the house is only a couple of blocks from the beach. Breakfast is always great. We keep coming back because we always feel welcome here. What a lovely home... You'll...

The family running this B&B is amazing and made sure we were fully accommodated. The 85 year old owner is full of wit and so warm. He told us to feel free to run around in the house in stocking feet and while we stayed to consider the house our home and use all the rooms. Great front porch for... More
