We booked the Ocean Front on pretty short notice for a 3 day visit with our adult kids and grand baby. We love Ocean City and usually rent a condo for at least a week, but this year our summer only left us a short visit. The Ocean Front was one of the few places with availability and it was... More

I would like to say that I have never been more disappointed in a motel choice or their response to my concerns. Despite my use of various review websites prior to booking, I was in no way prepared for what awaited me and my family. I saw words like "clean" used to describe an establishment that can only be described... More

A no frills motel which was clean, convenient and had spectacular views of the ocean. The motel is located at the end of the boardwalk activities and was the perfect location for our family. Quiet, but close to everything. Outdoor showers/hose were useful. Parking under the motel was tight, but much better than finding parking on the street. The rooms... More

Fab location, right on the beach and the rooms where very comfortable. It was a very quiet location and the beds etc where very good. Loved sitting on the deck looking out at the sea. I could have happily stayed here longer

There are only four rooms that are ocean front, the rest are ocean view through a crack in the window if you position yourself in the right location. The rooms were clean and staff was friendly and helpful. For a $60 refundable deposit you got two beach tags. The breakfast looked ok but we didn't take advantage of it; bagels,... More

This place is barely adequate. The cleanliness was fine, but it is a bit run down. The beds were hard and the TV only got one station. I may not have known how to use the controls (there were two of them) but there were string pulls coming out of the bottom of the TV and no instructions at all.... More

We booked this room the same day of staying. Called hotel and they said $250 a night however their website quoted $219. Booked online, took 35 minutes for a conformation through a third party. Room was ok, mouse trap behind dresser creeped us out, electrical outlet in bathroom was extremely loose, didn't use due to fear of being shocked. Deposit... More

Stayed here in 6/2016 with friends & family, was looking forward to vacation on the nj shore. Disappointed with the motel, yes it's right on the beach, major pro but motel is very outdated, dingy & dirty. Electrical outlets missing plates, extremely unsafe especially with children, shower rods falling, bed/bedsheets felt dirty.. Will not revisit this motel again... The owners... More

This hotel is at the end of the boardwalk, so it's quieter than most hotels. Clean and comfy digs. A great value. No frills. Better for couples and small families. Larger families would feel crowded and miss the amenities a more upscale hotel offers.

In an incredibly expensive resort community, the Ocean Front served well. Clean with no frills, walk up to upper floors, but great location, this motel right on the boardwalk was just right for a quick overnighter on a short trip to visit ailing family. Generally rates in Ocean City are through the roof, especially in season, but the Ocean Front... More
