If you are looking for a nice place to stay in Ocean City, NJ that is affordable, close to the beach/boardwalk, with excellent service,than look no further than the Ocean Front Motel. It was perfect for our weekend getaway. The rooms had just what we needed for a comfortable stay. The manager, John, could not have been more accommodating. He... More

We found Ocean Front Hotel at the start of the summer. We booked our first stay in June of 2010. We weren't sure what to expect because Ocean Front was so inexpensive compared to every hotel in Ocean City. We were pleasantly surprised. The location is fantastic, the rooms were clean and the staff was extrememy friendly. John runs Ocean... More

The Ocean Front Motel offers the best prices on the boardwalk at Ocean City, NJ. There aren't a lot of frills, but you're paying for the proximity to the beach, with an access point directly across the boardwalk from the motel (which is great for spotting when the beach ticket nazis leave their post). The motel does offer free wireless... More

This motel is very accommodating and has just what we were looking for. It is right on the boardwalk and you can sit on the deck and overlook the boardwalk and the beach. Being right at the edge of the main boardwalk shops, you can either have quiet on the beach or the deck or walk right out into the... More

I checked in and John the manager was right there. He said if you need anything don't hesitate to ask. My stay on the bordwalk was very pleasant! I would definitely stay there again! I am a person with MS, John even locked my motor scooter in his office at night. The maid came when it was time, there was... More

I've been going to this motel for about 8 years and have seen the progress that John had made in renovations... The rooms are clean and the continental breakfast is great. Parking spaces are a bit tight but John always makes sure that a spot is available. I can't see spending $100/night more for another boardwalk motel when this place... More

The Ocean Front Motel is a nice place to stay. the rates are reasonable, and the location is excellent - right on the boardwalk. All the rooms are non-smoking, but smoking is permitted at most other locations in the motel. So non-smokers like us have a bit of an issue. But over all, we are well pleased. John and the... More

We have never stayed at a Motel 6, but it would probably be a major step up. No elevator access. Very narrow and uneven steps. Way over priced for the quality of the place. Would never stay there again.
