"Nice hotel in the heart of Ocean City"
Its an older hotel but clean and the room had a flat screen television with a good channel selection, a microwave and refrigerator, was disappointed in the free WIFI, it was extremely slow and you had to purchase faster internet. There was also a nominal fee for ice which was more of a nuisance than a financial hardship. Overall we had a good experience and enjoyed the rather large and clean pool. I would definitely recommend and plan to stay at this hotel again.

Good for short term stay; place to sleep, really. In the middle of everything so quite convenient. Bathroom very cramped, but overall room clean and well kept. Ptoperty is old, and probably due a face lift.

"Wonderful, friendly staff!"
This hotel was very clean and a close walk to the beach. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. We felt very comfortable there during our stay. The lights in the room could have been a bit brighter. The room was a good size and we had enough room to walk around and had a table to dine at by the window. This is not a luxurious accommodation but it is clean pleasant and I would definitely go back. There is a café on site and there are also other options for dining within a very short walking distance. A great bike rental shop is right across the street.

"Super convenient to Boardwalk and Beach!"
Great location, very friendly staff, convenient to boardwalk, beach and restaurants. Didn't use the pool as it wasn't very hot when we were there but it looked clean and a lot of people were using it. Only downside we noticed is the mattresses and pillows were pretty uncomfortable. Bring your own pillow. Other than that it was an overall very pleasant experience.

"Great central area."
Greeted promptly, reviewed hotel policy & payment in timely manner. The room was somewhat dated but clean, comfortable & spacious. It's a shame the little cafe attached to the hotel was closed for the season, but other eateries were nearby. My only complaint would be the noise is heard from one room to the next. I don't know if better soundproofing if possible but would certainly be beneficial.

"Very nice mid-range accommodations"
My family of 3 stayed here for a weekend trip to the beach.The room was a nice size for us. The beds were comfortable and firm. Everything seemed very clean- not once did I find something that made me think "hmm, I wonder if this is safe to touch." The maid for our floor said hello to us every time we walked by, and it was nice to see such friendly staff. Front desk staff were also very friendly. Really, I have no complaints. It was a nice mid-range place to stay. Our little balcony was a nice touch, even though it only faced a street. We needed to un-plug the microwave and phone since our toddler kept messing with them, so families with young children should probably go through the room and un-plug these items for safety reasons since they are at counter height.

Nice clean hotel. We stopped for couple nights to relax and swim in the ocean. Neat great customer service. Room was clean had fridge and microwave. Nothing to complaint about. 3 minutes walk from the beach and boardwalk. Ocean City is a dry town. It is best place to be kids but for adults only tge attraction was ocean. Price on food better in the city or even hotels restaurant. I would recomend this hotel.

"Hôtel intéressant pour petite famille"
Un personnel accueillant dans un hôtel propre. Nous vous rappelons qu'Océan City est une ville au l'on ne retrouve pas de magasin avec alcool, Il faut traverser le pont pour s'en procurer, que l'alcool est interdite sur la plage ainsi que sur le bordwalk. L'hôtel est à un coin de rue de la mer. Deux laisser-passer pour la plage sont fournis avec la chambre. Il faut payer les autres à raison de 5$ par jour ou 10$ par semaine Très bien situé.'

"Freundlich!"
Das Hotel ist etwas älter, aber total sauber (das Zimmer war etwas muffig am Anfang aber konnte leicht gelüftet werden). Wie im Motels üblich sind die Zimmer zur Straße hin orientiert. So kann man das Auto direkt vor der Tür haben. Das Personal war total hilfsbereit, z.B. kann man das Pool und die Strandduschkabinen auch nach dem Checkout verwenden (praktisch bei Rückflug abends). Das Hotel ist 3 Blocks vom Boardwalk und der Strand ist einwandfrei. Das Restaurant serviert ein großes amerikanisches Frühstück mit griechischem (!) Flair. Sehr familienfreundlich.

"Clean! Great Location! Great Owners!"
07/23/15 lauriefusco11 Shelton, Connecticut
Great maid service...they do a wonderful job. Pool thoroughly cleaned every morning. Jeff (one of the owners) personally drove us to our boat reservation which we would have missed because unfortunately guests had parked behind us, blocking us from leaving. And picked us up when we were finished and had our car unblocked. I've stayed here before and I'll definitely stay again.

"Badly Needs Updating"
07/22/15 paa9
The best thing about the Forum is the location. It's one block to the beach/boardwalk and has an onsite restaurant which served delicious food. Great ice cream place next door. It's also one block from the Sindia Restaurant which we highly recommend. But the rooms severely need updating. The carpet is worn and the rooms are dark and unwelcoming. The small old refrigerators also need replaced. Ours did not cool well and was too small. Do not understand why the owners refuse to update and refurbish the rooms. This place would be a gem if they did. The only reason we stay here is the location. If the rooms are not redone, we will not be returning next year. The place is too run down.

"Great service/Great location!"
07/14/15 LJB29 Quakertown, PA
Each year, I try to get the hubby and daughter to OCNJ for Jersey shore fun and we don't always have time/funds to do a weekly house rental. The Forum is a good choice if you don't want to break the bank paying $400+/night. We always try to go the end of June and the pool is usually chilly but it's clean. They also provide beach tags and 1 free parking space. It is not luxury, if you are looking for 5 star opulence you will not get that here. If your looking for a nice, clean, laid back place to stay that is family friendly, then this place is where you need to be. This year the weather did not fully cooperate and I was not feeling 100% so 2 days before our weekend, I called and asked if I could cancel Saturday night and just stay Sunday night. Jeff at the front desk was very professional and friendly and put the change through for me no questions asked. Because of the friendly, professional service and overall efficiency, I highly recommend a stay here!

"3* property 5* location 5* people"
07/07/15 Fred R Haddonfield, New Jersey, United States
I gave this property a 4* overall rating because the location and service were great but the property is dated and needs some updating. The property seems to be maintained AND clean but simple things like some fixture upgrades would greatly help. The location is right in the thick of things in ocean city and the property has a nice pool with nice deck areas to boot. There's a restaurant in the property that serves food at the pool. The ping pong table room is also a nice touch.

"Gets the job done"
07/04/15 Wyatt134
Torn between 3 and 4. Not much competition in town but there are way better lodging options outside of ocnj. Excellent location near boardwalk, lunch, breakfast, shopping in town. Very clean, great maid service, friendly lobby staff. Parking is not so good. Most spots are double, so you pull to the front and if someone parks behind you, they leave keys in lobby and some one backs that car out if you need to leave. No thanks. Can't hang towels outside and good luck drying them indoors. Dryer available for $2. Also.. .25$ charge for ice is annoying. Rooms are not spacious, beds are not comfortable. Overall an OK place to stay. Most folks that like ocnj and the forum seem to like it for the nostalgia. Adequate for price, but not a 5 star hotel by any means.

"Great Location, clean and comfortable rooms, friendly staff!"
07/01/15 greengirl11 Doylestown, Pennsylvania
We loved this hotel and cannot imagine staying anywhere else in Ocean City. We are a family with kids aged 10-15 so we loved being close to the action. The front desk staff were genuinely friendly and made an excellent first impression. Our room was comfortable - nothing fancy but just what you want in a beach hotel. We loved the pool. There is a small restaurant that offers poolside service - we did not try it, but it looked quite convenient. We were only there for two days so we didn't have time to try this food with all the other food on the boardwalk. My daughters loved the small arcade and my husband and son were thrilled to find the ping pong table. Bike rental right across the street. Delicious ice cream shop right behind. Excellent beach hotel.

We just came back from another visit to Ocean City, NJ. We love staying at the Forum Motor Inn. The staff is so friendly and helpful. The rooms are very clean with comfortable beds. They pool is kept sparkling clean and is very refreshing for an afternoon swim. It is located just two blocks from the boardwalk and is very convenient to restaurants nearby. We will definitely be back soon.

This "motel" has the perfect location. One block from the beach, but close enough to stay away from the noise. They have a very nice pool for cooling off after the beach, and a small cafe off the lobby for a snack, lunch, etc.
