“Pleasant surprise”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

Although my family has vacationed in Ocean City for years, this is the first time we've stayed at this hotel. It was pleasant surprise. All staff were pleasant and helpful from the time we arrived until after we left (they even mailed me my phone charger that I had left in the room). The room was immaculate and an abundance of fresh towels was supplied; the hotel mattress was the best I've ever slept on. The location is perfect; the ocean view from the dining room was appreciated; although the food was mediocre (and a bit pricey), the staff was excellent. The only disappointment was the lack of the morning newspaper (I read in another review on this site that it was supplied). Will definitely return to this hotel.

Room Tip: Would recommend the south side, 2nd floor. There is a view of the ocean and boardwalk with a privat...

The best thing about this hotel is the location. We parked our car in the lot (one car permit per reservation) and never moved it. You can walk everywhere. Fun to sit by the pool and see/hear the ocean. The hotel staff are very friendly and accommodating and the room was clean (not meticulous, but clean). The only down side is that there is no microwave in the room (small mini fridge) and when we requested a bottle opener, we had to take our bottle to the front desk because they only have one in the hotel. Would have been nice to have a few more perks!! The restaurant is convenient but very expensive - breakfast for myself and 3 small children was $47.00 - only ate there once. Plenty of other restaurants in town!!

Room Tip: Full ocean view rooms are right by the pool and restaurant - not sure about the noise level!!

Been coming here for the last 17 years and plan on going back this year, Rooms are clean, fresh and the mini-refrig. provides a a nice touch. If you want to experience a great breakfast (or lunch/dinner), stop by the restaurant on the lower level. Always a delight.

Go back to a simpler time of walking the boardwalk, sitting by the pool and hearing the roar of the ocean from your window and that is what you will get when you stay at the Beach Club Hotel in Ocean City, NJ. Nice, simple, clean rooms with a flavor of the shore. A newspaper to wake up to in the morning, with coffee downstairs to greet you to a beautiful sunny day. Breakfast in the diningroom or on the deck facing the ocean make a great start to the day. Maybe a walk out to the pool to relax or a walk up and down the boardwalk to shop and take in the scenery. All is not far away, as the location is perfect for all enjoyment, but not the noise of the center of the boardwalk. Feels like you have stepped back in time to the quiet, enjoyable simple, yet comfortable place to be. My husband and I had our wedding on the beach just a few steps away from the hotel, on a beautiful sunset evening. They had rooms to accomodate our small group and made our stay wonderful. We will never forget the occasion and how nice the staff was to us. I would recommend this as a great place to stay for couples, families and anyone trying to soak in the South Jersey experience.

Room Tip: Get a room facing the ocean for the complete experience

I went back in July and this resort has always been great. I have never had a complaint at this hotel. This is the only place I would ever stay in OC. They do a great job with turning over the room every day and they give you plenty of clean towels. There was even a safe in the room which my husband liked because he could lock up his laptop. They're nice rooms, have plenty of space and there is just a nice feel to the rooms that brings back good memories. They don't try to trick you in the photos and exaggerate how luxurious it is or how big the pool is.

This is was our second last minute get-away with family at the Beach Club Hotel. Rooms are even better than before-decor has been spruced up and bathrooms re-tiled. The place is spotless and staff is efficient and pleasant. The hotel is directly on the boardwalk. For that reason I would NOT recommend ocean view rooms-first floor you are basically in a fish tank for the boardwalk gawkers or swimming pool patrons to stare into your room unless you leave the curtains closed. We chose the less expensive city view rooms which were whisper-quiet away from the traffic. If I want to view the ocean, I'll go outside!
My only complaint is no microwave. I frequent a lot of hotels and, unless they are super fancy, they all have microwaves. Our room did have a single serving coffee maker and refrigerator, though. Being gluten intolerant, I like to travel with and make my own oatmeal for breakfast (which I have down to a science in a microwave). We were not able to get a microwave even after calling down to the front desk. Otherwise I'd give it 5 stars for location, friendliness and cleanliness.

Room Tip: Don't request ocean view first floor- EVERYONE can stare in your room unless you always keep cur...

We just returned from our third annual trip to Ocean City in September. We have stayed at the BEach Club each year and we've never been disappointed. The location is perfect - right on the boardwalk and steps from the beach but not too close to the rides and amusements so that it's really noisy. Yes, the rooms are a bit dated but they are spotlessly clean. The beds are comfortable. One amenity we took advantage of this year: after checking out, we received a key to the common areas of the hotel, allowing us to use the changing rooms, showers and restrooms even after we checked out. We only had to move our car out of the hotel's lot (there is public parking next door). There's a bike room to keep your bikes locked up - nice not to have to keep them on the bike rack on the car. The staff was friendly. My only wish is that there were sheers on the windows, as well as black out curtains to let light in while preserving privacy. We'll be returning for a 4th year next Fall.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a pool view - you can also see the ocean. Not too noisy - the pool closes at ni...
