“A Better Place along the Boardwalk cannot exist!!”
Reviewed July 26, 2010

I wanted to give my daughter a great graduation gift. That definitely happened with this trip to Ocean City, MD and a stay at Inn on the Ocean. The owners, Vicki and Charlie, were sweet, funny, and very helpful. Josh, the Innkeeper, was kind and quick to respond to any questions/needs. The breakfasts were out of this world and were a surprise every day. Being literally on the boardwalk and ocean was a special treat and worth the extra expense. The veranda was perfect for early morning and evening enjoyment. If I had to give a negative comment, I guess it would be that having a larger room would have been nice. However, considering this home was built in the 1930's, we had no problem enjoying the coziness. The next time I go to OC, MD, I will definitely be staying at Inn on the Ocean. It was truly a joy!

Every year it only gets better. I have stayed at Vikki & Charlies cozy little Inn for 5 straight years and would not even think of staying anywhere else. You are in the heart of all the activity in Ocean City. The porch is a wonderful place to read and watch people pass by on the boardwalk, which the Inns deck connects too. We have stayed in almost every room and they are nothing short of immaculate. The breakfasts are out of this world and carries you through most of your day. All your beach gear is there for your use along with an endless amount of beach towels. There are bicycles there as well.
If you remember visiting a favorite Aunt & uncles house and how welcome you felt there thats what the Inn on the Ocean is all about. You will not find a more perfect view of the ocean either.

We just returned from our 5th stay to the "Inn on the Ocean". Our experience has always been wonderful! Vickie and Charlie have always made us feel very welcome and
really make you feel as though you are visiting family. It is hands down the best place to stay when you are visiting Ocean City. You will never want to stay anywhere else again.
The breakfasts on the beautiful front porch are delicious and the view of the ocean makes for a perfect way to start your day.
Vickie and Charlie have always been extremely accommodating. If you are looking for
a perfect getaway I'd highly recommend staying here!

This is a bed & breakfast right on the boardwalk in ocean city. Its very cozy & romantic coupled with the convenience of being by the beach. The breakfast is phenomenal.

Go there!!! This B&B is a fun place with comfortable rooms, nicely decorated, free parking, great location right on the Boardwalk, and great breakfasts. Bicycles and beach umbrellas and towels provided. The innkeepers are warm and friendly, very helpful, know the area well, and go the extra mile in helping guests enjoy themselves. An occasional feature is the "murder mystery dinner," a participant party with the meal built around a murder that the attendees must solve . . . one of them being the guilty party. Excellent spot for a romantic and/or fun getaway. We have been going there ever since the current innkeepers took over (8 - 10 years ago?) and will keep coming back until we are put in a "home for the aged."

As regular Bed and Breakfast visitors we can say without a doubt, if you do not find yourself completely satisfied at the "Inn on the Ocean," you are not going to be happy anywhere.

From the evening wine and appetizers with the other guests at 6:00 PM daily, to the last breakfast before checkout we felt the perfect balance of attention and privacy. The cooking is wonderful, the rooms cozy and well appointed.

"Inn on the Ocean" is perfectly located on the Boardwalk. If Vicki and Charlie are hosting a Murder Mystery Dinner during your stay you are in for a treat.

Convenient parking to wireless internet, it is all taken care of.

Thank you for a wonderful stay, we will be back soon.

Steve and Carolina.

We have been repeat customers at this Inn because of its charm, its excellent location and the gourmet breakfasts on the porch. We noticed last year that the innkeepers seemed a bit short tempered; he was rude at times and she seemed to have an attitude. We decided we would try again this summer; unfortunately we felt as though they were doing us a favor by hosting us. This year also we felt the Inn was getting a "little long in the tooth." Our room had peeling wallpaper, was in need of fresh paint and the the baseboard heater covers were rusted. It is too expensive a place to have these shortcomings.

We appreciate our guests' opinions and when changes need to be made, to be sure we are the "oasis" we promise to be, we make the changes as quickly as possible. We have checked each room and made the necessary renovations and refreshing that needed to be addressed. We definitely did not intend to be rude and we appreciate your comment. We hope you will visit us again soon.
