My husband and I tried to stay here 9/2020. The parking spaces were extremely narrow, and when our Ford fusion couldn't fit in several of the spaces, the manager berated us and told us to leave. He threatened to call the police while yelling at us without a mask on. We called the police, because the manager was behaving erratically. We received a refund and took our business elsewhere. The whole place was shabby and smelled like cigarettes.

This was our first time at OCNJ and we picked it based on reviews. The staff was nothing short of amazing - Leanne, John & the others who helped couldn’t have been more friendly - we had sooo many questions with covid & hurricanes & they couldn’t have been more patient with us! We loved the extra little room for my son who likes to wake up very early & he could shut the door & play without waking everyone up. We loved the location because when you walk out the door you’re on beach and boardwalk - how perfect. The lifeguards were also amazing here - we loved this little family get away before school started - everything was open like the amusement parks, mini golf, escape rooms and more ! Thank you ocean front motel

This place is a “find” in Ocean City! Very Good for a family. Perfect location and clean. Very reasonable (under $100 a night). We especially liked the Ocean-facing deck with its lounge chairs and tables and chairs on which to enjoy your own picnic. Unfortunately, no included breakfast because of Covid restrictions. So we ordered takeout and enjoyed our meals on the deck. John, the manager, was a delight with whom to engage and very helpful and accommodating. Thank you, John! By the way, most of the activities in Ocean city were up and running. We enjoyed go cart racing, miniature golf, and peddling our surry. Excellent getaway!

John the owner makes guests feel right at home with his generosity and kindness. I was lucky to land a room in 103 with a beautiful view of the crashing waves. The room was clean and well put together. Would highly recommend to those planning to stay in the heart of the boardwalk and beach.
