“Great Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2013

I was working in Ocean City for about six weeks last fall and stayed at the Oceanfront Inn the entire time. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful everyday. The proximity to the beach was amazing, and there was still plenty of restaurants, bars, etc within walking distance. Since I was there long-term, the kitchenette in the room was extremely helpful so I didin't have to eat out for every meal.

The Atlantic Oceanfront was my home for about a month while working on the crew of a movie shooting in Ocean City. The folks at this hotel could not have been nicer. I was greeted not only with hot coffee morning and night (sometimes on a film you need that night coffee), but with a friendly face who knew your name at the front desk everyday. By the end of the month, we were planning Halloween costumes with the staff. Steps from the beach, it was the PERFECT place to spend those last months of summer, and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a nice, clean, friendly place to stay in Ocean City.

Our first vacation in years. Everything was walking distance the room was great. The beach was steps away. No crazy, loud people. I was able to escape from my teens to the tiny crab shack across the street to have a beer and some outstanding little necks and crab legs with my husband and of course bring some back for the kids too. The place was great overall, the only problem was the parking, if someone parked wrong in their spot you were stuck trying to figure out where to park for the night since the front desk can't help you other then to tell you to park at the hotel next door for a fee (that was crazy, I almost lost it) then he managed to sqeeze us in a corner till morning (must have been the look on my face that helped him figure it out). The other issue for some people would be the fact that the pool is not attached to the hotel. We did not care since the beach is steps away but someone with small children may mind having to cross the parking lot entrance to get to the pool. The entire staff was also very nice and respectfull. We all had a great time and we will go back.

Room Tip: You will not be able to see the ocean from any room on the fist floor.

Dear valued guest, thanks so much for choosing us for your first vacation in years! Our quaint hotel is located right next to the 45th st. Village which has a ton of great restaurants. Belly Busters is also a great option which is also just a 5 minute walk away. Unfortunately our parking is limited to one car per room stay, and August is one of the busiest times of the year so we do apologize for any issues which you may have encountered. We pride ourselves on great staff and it makes our day when our guests compliment us on them! We certainly do hope it doesn't take you years to go on another vacation and if you choose to come back to Ocean City we would love to have you as our guest once more! Thanks again for staying with us on beautiful 45th St.

The staff was very friendly and helpful, room was bigger than expected, location perfect. We wish we did not have to leave. The room had a small stove, a refrigerator, and a really nice little deck. This was an impromptu little fishing trip and we will certainly return. Janet at the front desk was awesome.

This was our 3rd year to Atlantic OceanFront Inn in Ocean City, Maryland and once again it was nice, and relaxing stay. It was an extra surprise to see how they have made some changes for the better! The staff was very professional, friendly and polite. They went out of their way to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Our room was excellent which was an Oceanfront Balcony View!! The only problem I had was that of the hallways having musty mildew odor. Other than that our stay was nice and would go back again next year. Thanks Janet for your kid words about my son's stay!!! See you next year!!

Room Tip: Rooms with Oceanfront View on 5th floor are the Best Rooms to have!! Beautiful Beautiful Veiw Ever...

We had planned our trip since May of 2012...couldn't wait to get away and relax. Our Motto for the five days was "No Husbands, No Kids, No problems!" and that is exactly what it was. No problems. The room was great ocean front view, the staff was so polite and helpful. Beds were comfortable and the room was clean. We plan on staying here again. Just not during bike week. We were greatful that our hotel was tucked back in off the main road because we didn't hear the bikes, like we did when walking on the main street. Carina and Janet thank you so much for your help and information and getting things we needed ie extra towels because of the 5th person there and the sheets for the pullout sofa! See you again :)

Room Tip: Planning ahead and booking ahead saved us. We walked in the lobby and overheard a couple and the rat...
