The stay was full of pleasant surprises. Free parking in front of the hotel, very nice welcome package even we only stayed one night, the hotel was located next to the boardwalk and beach where there was a direct access to from the lobby. Absolutely great room and view. Great experience... especially for that rate.

Firstly, you should know that this review is slightly delayed. We stayed at the Oceanfront Inn August 6th-1th in 2015. I meant to review the hotel as soon as we got back to Oklahoma, but life happens. Anyways, the Oceanfront Inn was wonderful for our vacation to the east coast. Here are some simple pros and cons that we experienced:...

Thank you Cheyenne for your very, very fair review of The Oceanfront Inn. Thank you for taking the time to let us know about your experience and how you feel our family owned hotel did well- and not so well! We're working this upcoming year on the rooms. Since you were here, we have new balconies, pool area, lobby and...

We found this online when our original plans to travel further South to another state fell through because of a time constraint. The value was excellent! We had an oceanfront room With a balcony. There is so much within walking distance, that we never got into our car again until we had to leave. The rooms were clean, the showers/water...

We stayed at The Oceanfront Inn in April 2017 for a kids' sporting event weekend. I knew we weren't going to be in the room much, so I searched for an oceanfront property with an indoor pool that wouldn't break the bank. My family was extremely pleased with The Oceanfront Inn! Yes, it's dated, yes, the toilet paper is thin...

This hotel is getting 5 stars for their location to the shamrock marathon as well as their accommodations to the runners. The location is literally on top of the finish line which means you can go to your balcony for the best view of the finish line. Also very close to the start line for the half and the full!...

When the Best Western Plus Oceanfront kept cancelling my reservations for this past weekend, I rebooked at the Oceanfront Inn. Excellent decision. Very nice, spacious, clean rooms. Fabulous staff - so accommodating. The fact they don't have a free breakfast buffet doesn't matter to me, I bring my Keurig!

I was at Virginia Beach for a conference and was swayed away from the conference hotel with Oceanfront's promise that every room had an ocean view. The hotel staff were the most fun and helpful, especially Clinton who checked me in. There was a slight issue with some missing paperwork for my company's credit card but he made it really...

Hi Shannon! Thank you for your excellent review of The Oceanfront Inn! We're sorry about the blankets!

Stayed here as a family due to a sporting function one of our children were competing in. Where do I start?
