As a resident of Ocean City, I recommend many hotels to friends that are coming to the beach.
Some of our friends want the 'high-end' - others are just looking for a nice, clean room.
If you are looking for an inexpensive room; a downtown location; a well-managed and controlled hotel, then Ocean Manor will fill the bill.
It's one of the older hotels in the "Old Town" section of OC, so the rooms and bathrooms are very small.
Again: If you're looking pretty much for a place to just drop your luggage, take a shower, walk the Boardwalk, and get a good night's sleep, it'll work for you.
A bonus: The absolute best three redneck bars in town are right up the street (The Clam, Snapper's, and the Cork Bar).
They also have the cheapest and coldest beer in town, and just might be the friendliest bars in town, too.
