There are only four rooms that are ocean front, the rest are ocean view through a crack in the window if you position yourself in the right location. The rooms were clean and staff was friendly and helpful. For a $60 refundable deposit you got two beach tags. The breakfast looked ok but we didn't take advantage of it; bagels,...

This place is barely adequate. The cleanliness was fine, but it is a bit run down. The beds were hard and the TV only got one station. I may not have known how to use the controls (there were two of them) but there were string pulls coming out of the bottom of the TV and no instructions at all....

We booked this room the same day of staying. Called hotel and they said $250 a night however their website quoted $219. Booked online, took 35 minutes for a conformation through a third party. Room was ok, mouse trap behind dresser creeped us out, electrical outlet in bathroom was extremely loose, didn't use due to fear of being shocked. Deposit...

Stayed here in 6/2016 with friends & family, was looking forward to vacation on the nj shore. Disappointed with the motel, yes it's right on the beach, major pro but motel is very outdated, dingy & dirty. Electrical outlets missing plates, extremely unsafe especially with children, shower rods falling, bed/bedsheets felt dirty.. Will not revisit this motel again... The owners...

This hotel is at the end of the boardwalk, so it's quieter than most hotels. Clean and comfy digs. A great value. No frills. Better for couples and small families. Larger families would feel crowded and miss the amenities a more upscale hotel offers.

In an incredibly expensive resort community, the Ocean Front served well. Clean with no frills, walk up to upper floors, but great location, this motel right on the boardwalk was just right for a quick overnighter on a short trip to visit ailing family. Generally rates in Ocean City are through the roof, especially in season, but the Ocean Front...

This motel was nothing special -- no telephone; no ironing board. Had to run the water for @5 minutes in the shower before the hot water started. It was very basic. That being said, it was clean. Beds were comfy. Owner was nice (especially when I requested my room be changed from "ocean front" which consisted of a window to...

This is a motel, people. Motels don't have fancy decorating or amenities. They are basically a room to spend the night, or nights, in an economical way. The Ocean Front was very clean and suitable for our one evening stay. Small coffee pot in room, small packets of shampoo and soap. Not much of a continental breakfast and it wasn't...

I had decided to stay in Ocean City NJ for a Concert near by, Madonna in Atlantic City. The pricing for the room was great. The owner was very friendly and room was very clean. Also the maid service was superb.
