Okay people. Rate the hotel fairly. The hotel is not keeping a secret when you book. It is two double beds with double pillows. It does not offer breakfast. Read the amenities before you book! If you want a queen bed, stay in a hotel that offers queen beds. I stay in hotels about half the weekends of the year.... More

Great views of ocean with very easy beach access. Walk to many good restaurants. Hotel staff friendly and helpful. Room was very quiet - never heard another person, even though hotel was nearly full. Great deal, and we would definitely stay here again.

Pros: The view is AMAZING. The staff is very friendly and we felt welcome. It's an old hotel, but it was clean. The heated, indoor pool is very nice. Cons: The beds are awful (two, full-sized beds) and the pillows are worse. There's no free breakfast, we paid $25 for two bagels and some horrible pancakes. The room was non-smoking... More

Hello Amanda! Thank you for your review of The Oceanfront Inn! Thank you for bringing the smoking to our attention and now we can properly ventilate/clean the room. Our hotel is 100% non-smoking but unfortunately, some guests feel the need not to listen and still smoke in our rooms, and it comes at a cost to them, and the comfort... More

We stayed at The Oceanfront Inn for 2 nights. We arrived about an hour before check in time, hoping for early check in. This didn't happen, and we waited for over an hour, but the front desk did switch us to another room that was already clean, knowing we had been waiting that long. Our room was clean and suited...

Our family would not consider any other place to stay at the beach. The location and facilities are the best but most of all we love the people there. Many of the folks have worked there for years and they always take great care of us. The only place for us to stay at the beach !!!!

We arrived 9/2 in the middle of Tropical Storm Hermine for the Springsteen show the next day. Saturday Morning we found out it was postponed until Monday. Panic now sets in as I try to figure out what I'm going to do. I go down to the lobby where Jennifer listens to my plight. I ask to cancel for Saturday... More

Don't expect an upgraded fancy hotel, this is a basic hotel that is clean and affordable next to the ocean. They do try to keep the place updated, however it still has an "old" feel to it, if you are looking for an economical place to stay, this is it, the location is fantastic, next to the beach, 31st stage,...

We had a great time. The hotel is in a great location and steps from the beach. Everyone was so friendly. The room was fine for being a beach place. I think it's a great value too for being right on the beach. Free wifi was also a plus. We will definitely return - perfect spot for watching the sunrise... More

We had a nice room on the 6th floor that had a great view of the water and the boardwalk. The hotel is in the perfect location, right in the center of the boardwalk. Very easy access to the beach. I will definitely stay here again.

We can't say enough about this great place to stay. Super friendly staff, clean rooms, easy access to beach. We were there for 4 days and did not have one complaint. If anything could be improved, it would to include free breakfast. Other than that it was everything we wanted and more.
