Ocean Front Motel
Ranked #12 of 31 Hotels in Ocean City
Reviewed 13 October 2017

Location was really great -- right at the end of the boardwalk but still close to restaurants and attractions. There is an entrance to the beach right in front of the motel. The free parking was a bonus, but got a bit crowded on Saturday night so was a tight squeeze. The place would benefit from some updates. They still use keys for the rooms, not cards. And only one window could be opened in our room (in the bathroom) and it smelled a bit musty and always felt a bit damp. The bathroom needs more places to hang things, also.

The room was always well-cleaned, though. And there is a fridge and microwave, which definitely helps when traveling with kids. It was very quiet there all three nights, and according to the No Vacancy sign it was full.

The motel itself is OK but I expected more from a motel on the boardwalk. Made reservations for a day trip and when we arrived and figured out that the motel did not have a pool, we told the manager that we did not want to stay and wanted to find a place that had a pool. The manager laughed and said "you came to the beach for a pool?" Not that it's any of his business but after the beach we like to relax in a pool. He told us that we could not cancel our reservation despite the fact that none of the paperwork they sent to me stated that. He then stated that we do not advertise that we have a pool, which is correct, but somehow when we looked at the property we just assumed they did. Our fault but I do not think we should've had to pay for a room we didn't use since they had other vacancies.

We have been staying at the Ocean Front Motel every summer since 2011 and always have an absolutely extraordinary time! This is due to the warm welcoming of all the staff. Because everyone is so hospitable to us and meeting our needs, we never have to worry. We feel at home here. AND, the location is ideal with the boardwalk and beach only steps away!!

Fantastic. We have stayed here in the past and we will again in the future.. the location is perfect.. the staff is very accommodating.. The rooms are clean, and kept up well.. there is a refrigerator and microwave in every room.. my husband and I rented two rooms for our children and three grandchildren... There was plenty of room and just outside our rooms was a common area to sit out and watch the people walk by on the boardwalk... There kids could play games while we sat and enjoyed the views...A great family vacation.
