The hotel is a good solid 3 plus star shore hotel. It gets 4 stars from me for exceptional customer service, spotless rooms, A/C that worked well and was QUIET! Best perk- if you arrive @ 1PM or after on your check in day you can park on site and use your beach tags before check in- check out day-...

Thank you.

The location of this place is perfect. Just steps to the boardwalk and all the activities. Pool was nice and clean, but the pool towels were stained and ripped. The room was ok, not great, not bad. The motel needs some refurbishing. It's strange that no shampoo is provided, but there is a sign saying that if you need any...

Thanks! Yes, we in fact use towels no longer nice enough for the guest rooms as our pool towels it's a cost saving measure-- rust stains in the laundry or tears- pool towel! I am sorry about the shampoo, we do have it at the desk-- I'm astonished.. we also have shower caps, toothbrushes, toothpaste, razors, sewing kits, eyeglass repair...

Thank you very much! Parking is assigned, and anyone with a larger car would be better served by letting us know in advance.. it does limit rooms (of 73 spaces, 12 are in spaces built for 1970's cars) but it can improve your visit if when you book you ask for 'open air' parking only.... (if you ask for it,...

We only got one night. It was a Saturday, and I was a little upset with how much my husband paid for the room for ONE night. But let me tell you, it was worth every penny and then some! The place is SUPER CLEAN & non rusty like most ocean side motels. The staff were all incredibly nice and...

Thank you... I try and tweak lots of refinements in to maximize vacation value.. -I know we have the most liberal beach tag policy on the island and anyone who wants to stretch out checkout day in town/on the beach is recommended to discuss it with the desk BEFORE their last night.... We're in a neat situation zoning wise, there...

I brought my teen kids, preteen niece and my Mom with me for an overnight trip. We got the suite which had 2 bedrooms, bathroom, mini kitchen with stove top, microwave and fridge.

Pluses and Minuses to this property visit. Ocean City is an alcohol free family place to be in Summer…the boardwalk is jammed w/kids if all ages enjoying typical ferris wheel and roller coaster rides in between stops for pizza, french fries and smoothies then mini-golf, laser tag before moving on to gelato, monkey bread and/or fudge. What a Summer scene!...

Thanks for the kind words... And thank you for the suggestion for the beach chair--- the vast majority of rentals in those units, it's not applicable but I can and will update the emails that go with those rentals... thinking I can do more with it for 2017 though.. acquisition..... Hmm.. thank you.. Mj

We stayed here for one night only, wish we could stay longer. We had a good stay here. The staff were friendly and the room was nice, clean and big. They gave us a custom made mug as a souvenir when we leave.

Another wonderful stay at Ocean 7. As always, the staff is very friendly and accommodating. We stayed in a basic 2 room suite and it suited us just fine. We have found Ocean 7 several years ago and have a fun collection of coffee mugs to remind of us of all of our stays. Looking forward to our next stay...

All things considered, we had a good stay here. I'd rate the hotel room about 3 but the staff is a solid 5.
