Ocean Front Motel
Ranked #11 of 31 Hotels in Ocean City
Reviewed June 25, 2013

We were very pleased with our first stay at the Ocean Front Motel in Ocean City, NJ. We arrived early, but were able to check in immediately. All the hotel staff we met greeted us with a smile, and were always helpful. The room was clean and comfortable, and the hotel is located about one block south of where the boardwalk shops start. This seemed to reduce the amount of outside noise at night compared to hotels further up the boards. All in all it was a great visit, and we're planning to go back again later in the summer!

This hotel caters to all who stay. Excellent service. We were only staying for two days but decided to stay for additional days and had no problem getting those days. Rooms were serviced every day of the stay which was very nice.

Room Tip: No matter what room there is still a view of the ocean.

We just spent a wonderful weekend in Ocean City hosted by John Capalbo, who couldn't have been nicer or more accommodating. When we left the room he was always on the property checking on the well-being of all of the guests ready with a bright smile and a suggestion of what to do and where to go. Ocean Front Motel is a welcoming atmosphere where our family (including our two foster children 7 and 9) immediately felt right at home. It is a standard hotel room, with two beds, bureau, mini-fridge, microwave, large closet....However this was all perfect for the four of us since we didn't spend much time in our room being so close to the largest swimming pool in New Jersey, and the most exciting vacation destination, the Ocean City Boardwalk! Now for the magic: Our kids were so excited to be going to Wonderland Pier and experience the attractions and shared their plans with John who said "wait right here", and came back with a coupon book containing 1 free ride on the carousel! That's not all, he was so kind to take a photo of our family and later surprised us with a Beach Memories photo frame to help us never forget the wonderful time we had in his motel. Thank you John. Book your stay here with confidence that you won't be disappointed.

We just returned from staying three nights at the Ocean Front Motel. We really enjoyed the experience. The location is perfect - right on the boardwalk and beach. Shopping and restaurants are steps away. I loved being able to look out at the ocean from a comfortable lounge chair on the patio, without getting sandy. The rooms are clean. The beds are comfortable. You're provided with a refrigerator, microwave, flat screen tv, and hair dryer. They provide a lovely continental breakfast consisting of coffee, tea, bagels, English muffins, Danish and donuts. The price was very reasonable. The best part of the Ocean Front is the staff - they are very friendly and accommodating. Although you're not staying at a 5 star hotel, John, the manager, treats you like you are. John has a very nice way about him - nothing is ever a problem, or a bother. The weather was beautiful on the day we checked out, and we hated to leave. John encouraged us to stay the day and enjoy the beach. He allowed us to use their patio, shower, and restroom facilities for the day. We will definitely be returning.

Great location, clean, comfortable place to stay while enjoying the beach and boardwalk. I requested a room with an ocean view and had fun just looking out at the ocean from my bed! Fridge, microwave, cable and functional basic furnishing make this a good choice. It's half the price of the big place next door so a good deal.Friendly folks working there helped to make me feel like a welcomed guest. I wish the front window opened to let in an ocean breeze but at least the side window in the bathroom opened. No phone in the room, which is odd but not a problem for me.

Room Tip: Corner rooms are nice and with the second floor you can keep your blinds open and still not feel lik...

The ocean front motel in Ocean City New Jersey is the best deal on the beach which it is on . The price is very good and the General Manager John Capalbo is the best he will do anything to make your stay a very happy one. The motel is on the boardwalk and beach, what a deal.I wouldn't stay any place .The whole staff is great. The location is perfect. One thing I love to do is sitting out on the deck it is real nice. I will be there most weekends this year.
