The rooms are clean, the staff is friendly/professional and you can’t beat the location. We had three rooms together, poolside, all identical motel type rooms. They were a decent size with sitting area. Plenty room for luggage. I always love motels/hotels with bathrooms that have separate rooms for sink and toilet/shower. The bathroom overall was somewhat small but easily workable... More

We jus got back from a 2 night 3 day stay at the Forum. The rooms are extremely clean you can smell it as soon as you walk in the door. The front desk staff were friendly not overly but if you needed anything they seemed very accomidating. The pools are nice the baby one be careful though since the... More

My friend and I stayed at the Forumn in Ocean City due to the reviews from Trip Advisor. The room was clean..nothing special. I was surprised by the front desk. I had expected them to be very friendly and helpful. They were courteous but not helpful and barely looked up when we passed the desk. I would just give this... More

We arrived Monday afternoon and we not allowed to check in until 2:00pm and had to pay for entire day...$251.00. We were charged for four days. Had to leave the hotel Thursday morning but was charged for the entire day. The people who checked into the same room we occupied after we left the motel were also charged $251.00 for... More

Pros: * Very, very friendly staff * Clean * Nice pool area * Good location * Reasonably priced ($200/night) in comparison to some of the other motels Cons: * Like most motels on the Jersey Shore, this one is in need of a MAJOR face-lift. The room decor and furniture is from the 1970's, bathroom is old, and there are... More

I couldn't wait to get home to write this review. My girlfriend was flying in from Kentucky and I was making all the plans. Needless to say I was a little nervous, I wanted everything to be perfect. She hasn't been in Ocean City for about 30 years and I wanted her experience to be a good one. The Forum... More

Our family of 5 (3 children under 10) stayed 3 nights in a room with two double beds and a cot. The motel is older but the common areas, our room, and bathroom were well maintained and very clean. The beds were comfortable and the linens were clean and newer. Our room 305, had a semi private balcony and the... More

We decided to get away from the heatwave, felt more by us on the mainland, and called The Forum to see if any rooms available that night (found out that the web doesn't show anything less than 3 night bookings- but just says "unavailable"). They did and "Holly" was very helpful, friendly and professional both on phone and at reception.... More

The positives include the location to the boardwalk, the friendly staff and the pool. The negatives are the outdated rooms (1970's), darker hallways, street noise, cost +200/night. IMHO, the hotels/motels are all over priced for the value received. We checked out the Port O Call and others and I can honestly state that The Forum was the better value as... More

Another awesome stay at the Forum. Great location close to both the beach and boardwalk in the center of town. This time we stayed in a suite. Great room! Awesome pool and very convenient coffee shop located right at the hotel. Very convenient for a quick breakfast or lunch! Can't wait to return next year!
