In a town full of small motels, this hotel stands out. You couldn't possibly ask to be in a better location. The views from our ocean front room were amazing! Rooms are very large, easily accommodating all four of us. Nice little lobby restaurant for breakfast. We didn't use the pool, but it looks fun!

This was a last minute trip to the shore.

Port o call delivered....great location on the boardwalk, simple walk to beach, great breakfast at Adelene, and... More

Options when booking were ocean view or bay view. Due to the length of our stay and the price difference, we chose bay view, figuring we would have a nice water view either way. I'd never been there before, and apparently bay view is code for parking lot, because nowhere from the entire building is there a bay to be... More

We had a bay view on the 8th floor. This place towers over most others for an unobstructed view of in any direction.

The Port-O-Call is a wonderful place to stay. The staff is great - the hotel is keep spotless, and this has been the case for the 8 years I've been staying here. This past weekend the staff went the extra mile to make a quick family getaway spectacular. Thank you - we had a blast.

This was our first visit to OC. We chose this hotel based upon the reviews on here. The hotel is very, very nice. We requested (paid for) and received a high floor with a nice view of the bay off in the distance. This provides great sunset views which we enjoy.

We reserved a deluxe oceanfront double room at the Port-o-Call. It was a great location, the hotel was nice and clean. The view from the room was awesome. Room 908 is perfect. Will come back again soon.
