Northwood Inn
Ranked #3 of 20 Ocean City B&B and Inns
Reviewed August 17, 2006

The Northwood Inn has been our favorite getaway for over 10 years! We love the charming decor, impeccably clean rooms and nice variety of amenities. Marj & John Loeper are wonderful innkeepers, and offer lots of great suggestions for restaurants and current activities in the Ocean City / Atlantic City areas - they'll even help you get reservations! The delicious breakfasts and Marj & John's warm hospitality will keep us coming back again and again!

We have stayed at the Northwood Inn every year for about 10 years now. My husband & I take a quiet 3-4 day weekend & recharge our "romantic side" of life. The Inn is beautifu, quiet, private, clean & extremely accomodating. Marj & John are as friendly & helpful as ever. but also give you complete privacy!
They go out of their way to be available to answer questions about local eateries, attractions etc. They have a long history in the area & know it all! The rooms are just incredible, fresh smelling, clean & quiet. Any little extra you need is there, from DVDs,wine bucket,bicycles,local menus etc! The breakfasts are varied, clever & delicious! Breakfast tables are set for couples or a bigger table if you bring friends. We like to privacy of a table for 2, with the morning sun pouring in over the breakfast porch!
It's cozy, clean, modern, romantic, comfortable & well located! We have given gift certificates to friends from here several times & NO ONE has been disappointed! You should go or send someone you LOVE it's a TREAT!

This is a great b&b in Ocean City and Marj Loeper takes great care of her guests. She bought us a NY Times every day and made arrangements for us to take great subs on our trip home to Seattle! The Inn provides bikes, beach chairs and beach towels and has an outdoor shower, so it's very easy to have a great beach vacation withouth lugging the country store with you.

My only criticisms are that the rooms are small and the breakfasts are carb heavy although when I mentioned this to Marj at the end of our stay, she said she would have been happy to provide yogurt, cottage cheese, etc. had we asked.

I've stayed here twice, separated by 10 years, and it was exactly the same (with the addition of a hot tub) this July as it was on my last visit.

This past summer my husband and I had at the good fortune of staying at the Northwood Inn in Ocean City, NJ. From the moment we were greeted by Marj, the innkeeper we knew we had come to the right place for a relaxing, enjoyable few days. The Northwood is a beautifully restored home with all the amenities and comforts one could ask for... central ac, impecably decorated guest rooms with private baths, rooftop spa, butler pantry for guests convenience, and delightful common areas to enjoy. We enjoyed delicious self serve, continental-plus breakfasts during the week and on the weekend we were served a fabulous, full breakfast. Both included assorted cereals, teas, coffees, melons, fruits, and freshly made baked goods. The Northwood cookbook is a great keepsake to try Marj's wonderful recipes once we were at home. It was great chatting with Marj and John and to see photos and hear stories of how John restored the Inn while learning interesting facts about the history of Ocean City.
An added bonus was making an appointment with Rebeca, the onsight massage therapist, truly a royal way to treat oneself and soothe away muscle aches and pains. We enjoyed great places to dine on and off the island thanks to Marj and John's helpful suggestions and making our reservations. Having beach bikes to use whenever we liked was another added treat.
Our visit to the Northwood was truly a memorable one, we look forward to returning to the lovely Northwood Inn this fall and to enjoying Marj and John's warm hospitality.

We were greated with such warmth that is was no wonder so many people had recommended this bed and breakfast. The innkeepers were friendly, funny and great to talk to about the area we were about to explore. Each morning the breakfast was fresh and delicious. We especially loved the lemon muffins!! When it came time to find a place for dinner we were able to go through numerous menus to find what felt right for that night. We look forward to making this a yearly adventure and will be sure to share the Northwood Inn with our friends and family.

We checked in under the assumption (because of the name) that this was a bed & breakfast...as we sat there waiting for breakfast, we soon discovered that "breakfast" was OJ, coffee and lactose tolderant/sugar/fat-free lemon muffins...which you must get yourself.

The inn keeper was to say, less then accomodating and not very friendly. She sent us to a "California Type" restaraunt - in her words - turned out to be a Cajin Grille with food that will keep you off the beach for a day.

They forgot to mention the fact that if you leave your window open (even in 95 degree weather) you will shortly return to a bug infested sleeping quaters.

The Bike option was a nice effort, unfortunately, they too are very Victorian in age as is the Inn itself.

Ocean City is beautiful, and there seemed to be a ton of very nice places to stay - even this one from the outside, but I would say don't go in.
