Our favorite beach stay is at Ocean Front. A few steps to the boardwalk, and then you are on the beach. We like not having to move the car during the stay. We take bikes along to get around, or one can rent them. Eats are close by. Cozy, small, continental breakfast. Great times here.

We decided to on short notice to see if we could get a hotel room close to the boardwalk. I was a little surprised to ind that this hotel had a room available on short notice. The price was steep, but I figured it wasn't going to be cheap staying on the boardwalk in the middle of the summer. We...

The view outside our bedroom! Met our friends here who always stay in this place during Labor Day week. They have new management and just as friendly as the previous owner. Like what i said in my previous review... this place is really economical and so relaxing to stay.

We stayed here last Labor Day and again this year. Many improvements. New AC, new HDTV, but same old time shore place. Great location. Nice staff. Room clean. It's where we will stay many Labor Days to come.

Our lifelong friends had asked if we wanted to tag along with them to Ocean City on Labor Day weekend and since they offered to foot the bill of the room, how could we turn that down? Owners were pleasant and accommodating. Motel is on the southern side of the boardwalk just before it widens to all of the boardwalk...

I liked this place. Rooms are clean but basic. Ocean views plentiful. Can walk to numerous tourist attractions and places to eat. Management friendly and helpful. Everything worked but definitely no frills here. The weather was too hot to enjoy the beach.

We booked the Ocean Front on pretty short notice for a 3 day visit with our adult kids and grand baby. We love Ocean City and usually rent a condo for at least a week, but this year our summer only left us a short visit. The Ocean Front was one of the few places with availability and it was...

I would like to say that I have never been more disappointed in a motel choice or their response to my concerns. Despite my use of various review websites prior to booking, I was in no way prepared for what awaited me and my family. I saw words like "clean" used to describe an establishment that can only be described...

A no frills motel which was clean, convenient and had spectacular views of the ocean. The motel is located at the end of the boardwalk activities and was the perfect location for our family. Quiet, but close to everything. Outdoor showers/hose were useful. Parking under the motel was tight, but much better than finding parking on the street. The rooms...

Fab location, right on the beach and the rooms where very comfortable. It was a very quiet location and the beds etc where very good. Loved sitting on the deck looking out at the sea. I could have happily stayed here longer
