One of the best things about this place is its location. It sits on the boardwalk and is only a few steps from the beach. Easy off-the-street parking on site. The manager, John Capalbo was very friendly and always there to assist. The motel is easy to reach in Ocean City.

This is the ninth year we have enjoyed staying at the Ocean Front Motel. The service is great here. John and his crew work hard to meet our every need. The prices cannot be beat for being on the oceanfront, and we are within walking distance of all attractions in town and the boardwalk. Being on the far end away...

Ocean Front Motel is in an ideal location. Located at the southern end of the Ocean City boardwalk when your evening boardwalk stroll is over you end up at your motel without having to walk the city streets to get to your motel. All of the most desired Jersey foods are in close walking distance. The ocean is just a...

We have come back to this motel over and over again. We love being right on the boardwalk and sitting on the sun deck. It is not the fanciest place, but it is clean and close to everything. John, the manager is very accommodating. Parking is tight, but not impossible. We will continue to stay here again and i would...

I like this motel very much. It has the privacy and comfort one can expect to find in a bigger hotel and the hospitality and personal attention of a B & B, with quite reasonable prices. The location could not be better, right in front of the ocean, about a block away from the commercial part of the boardwalk (therefore...
