The Pros: - Location. Location. Location. This place is at the far quiet end of the boardwalk and right on the boardwalk. Everything is walkable. The bike rental place is right on the corner and tons of places to eat both on the boardwalk and center town is a quick walk away - Very clean rooms - Friendy staff and...

Stayed at the Ocean Front for a couple of days at the tail end of the summer. It was very reasonably priced and I had seen it from the boardwalk during walks and thought it looked okay. Pros are definitely location, literally right on the boardwalk and within walking distance of food, rides, etc. The room was typical motel type...

As what i mentioned in my review last May 2015... me and my fam bam are back in this place and this a whole week vacation. We love the place because it is beachfront and few steps away from the boardwalk. The beachfront deck is just so awesome that when you sit there facing the beach... it is just soooo...

Let me start by simply saying how sad this motel turned out to be. I thought location location location. But not in this case. It started with our arrival. There is limited parking and if you are lucky enough to find a spot you certainly can't move your vehicle after that. The spots are so tight they are mostly designed...

We started off on the wrong foot. My wife thought she booked the motel two blocks down on the boardwalk. You know, the one with the pool. When she discovered the error, it was too late to cancel. There's a 14 day cancellation policy on specials at this motel. Anyway, we were taking our eight year old granddaughter on a...

My husband and I went here on our honeymoon. It's an older hotel, and you can see that in the architecture. But it's very clean and the staff is very nice. There aren't a lot of amenities, so if that's what you want this isn't the place for you. But there is a deck that faces the ocean that provides...

Headed to OC for a short 4 day mini vacation and wanted a place to stay on the beach that was "affordable for OC" and Ocean Front fit the bill. Lodging in OC is expensive. Hotel location is good, located 1 blk from where the busy section of the boardwalk begins and beach access is right there. The hotel is...

We stayed at the oceanfront hotel with our family of four. Cannot be the location! Right on the beach. Perfect view of the beach. Rooms are clean, but a little small. Two minute walk down the boardwalk are plenty of restaurants.Can definitely see ourselves coming back in the future!

Loved our three day stay. Very clean. John and staff is friendly and helpful. Perfect location because it is right on the boardwalk and beach is steps away. Deck is wonderful for relaxing and enjoying sunshine while watching the ocean.
