Reviewed June 4, 2005

Just came back from a 4 night stay at the port-o-call with my wife and 2 children ages 2 and 4. The staff at this hotel was outstanding. After a minor incident with our room we were quickly moved to a different room and from managment to housekeeping, maintnance, hotel staff everyone went out of their way to first take care of our situation and then to be sure the rest of our stay was perfect. (thank you Glen ) ALthough the rooms were a little dated ( bathrooms were perfect ) this is truley a great family hotel. As far as were concerned this is the only choice in a area that dosent seem to have many nice hotels. This was our first visit to ocean city we usually go to oc maryland were there are many hotel choices. The grounds and lobby area of this hotel our perfect and the housekeeping is the best iv ever seen( we travel 5 to 6 times a year) Thank you for the candy on our pillows, my daughter still cant stop talking abou it. We would highly recomend staying in this hotel if visiting oc,nj.

Spent Oct. 1-3 at the Port-O-Call Hotel for my wedding anniversary. Both my wife and I greatly enjoyed the hotel (my wife had stayed here as a child). Everything was done the way it should be done -- right down to real creamers in the tiny refrigerator in the room to use with the complimentary coffee machine. Nothing like getting 2 newspapers outside the room when you wake up and sitting on a balcony with coffee, newspaper, and the ocean. WELL DONE!

We just spent a perfect vacation at The Port O Call. The room was exceptionally clean and comfortable; the bed linen of finest quality; room service far above average; the balcony perfect for two to enjoy the view of the ocean, swimming pool, and boardwalk. The quality of the food and service in the restaurant had improved since our last visit.

We stayed at the Port o call it was OK. As a child I always looked at this hotel and dreamed of staying there. The reality did not meet the dream. The balcony was actually scary as it was very high but very small felt like I could tip right over and DOWN!, Also the walls are paper thin so if you have rude neighbors and in this world that is almost a certainty. We had neighbors int he next room who got up at 5:30 am and thought nothing of having a party laughing, talking loud that it woke me up and I felt I was right in the conversation with them. So once again the reality does not liveup to the dream.
