We mostly just stayed here while we went out to the beach and boardwalk, but the hotel is still a good place to go. Literally RIGHT NEXT to the boardwalk, and the surrey rental place. We have never gone to a different hotel when we have stayed at Ocean City.

This is the second year in a row that we've come north to hit the shore in Ocean City NJ and stayed at the Ocean 7. We love it! Right off the boardwalk at 7th Street, it's right in the middle of the action for beach, food, Wonderland and putt putt golf. The hotel has a pool, reserved parking, beach...

We stayed at the Ocean 7 for one night with our granddaughter. We booked a "decorator suite" which had a living area with a couch, small table and TV, with a separate bedroom with two full size beds. We were able to park onsite even though our room was not ready when we arrived at 12:30, but we were able...

Once again - A wonderful stay at Ocean 7. We had a room facing the pool which was great because the children could use it and we were close to room if we had to run back. The room was clean, even able to check in a little early. The pool was refreshing and clean. The staff was nice, close...

Listen, you are not going to an Atlantic City hotel, you are going to a Jersey shore motel. I was pleasantly surprised by the Ocean 7. Rooms are spacious and most importantly, clean. Location could not be any more ideal. The front desk and housekeeping crew were diligent and very pleasant to interact with. They give beach badges for your...

Thanks! Really! thanks -- I want to clear a point in case anyone misunderstands- Our umbrellas are really nifty clear 'bubble' umbrellas for inclement weather, you can still cruise the boardwalk and see out But they are not beach umbrellas for the sun.... Glad you enjoyed it... Marke

This is not a fancy hotel by any means but it was clean, comfortable, quiet and the AC worked great. It is a stone's throw from the boardwalk & beach. The kids enjoyed the pool and the staff was all super friendly. It was not cheap as we stayed right in the middle of August but it was great as...

The hotel is a good solid 3 plus star shore hotel. It gets 4 stars from me for exceptional customer service, spotless rooms, A/C that worked well and was QUIET! Best perk- if you arrive @ 1PM or after on your check in day you can park on site and use your beach tags before check in- check out day-...

The location of this place is perfect. Just steps to the boardwalk and all the activities. Pool was nice and clean, but the pool towels were stained and ripped. The room was ok, not great, not bad. The motel needs some refurbishing. It's strange that no shampoo is provided, but there is a sign saying that if you need any...

Thanks! Yes, we in fact use towels no longer nice enough for the guest rooms as our pool towels it's a cost saving measure-- rust stains in the laundry or tears- pool towel!

Thank you very much! Parking is assigned, and anyone with a larger car would be better served by letting us know in advance.. it does limit rooms (of 73 spaces, 12 are in spaces built for 1970's cars) but it can improve your visit if when you book you ask for 'open air' parking only.... (if you ask for it,...

We only got one night. It was a Saturday, and I was a little upset with how much my husband paid for the room for ONE night. But let me tell you, it was worth every penny and then some! The place is SUPER CLEAN & non rusty like most ocean side motels. The staff were all incredibly nice and...

Thank you... I try and tweak lots of refinements in to maximize vacation value.. -I know we have the most liberal beach tag policy on the island and anyone who wants to stretch out checkout day in town/on the beach is recommended to discuss it with the desk BEFORE their last night....
