"Close, clean, and cheap!"
About a 3 minute walk to boardwalk! Staff was great! Very friendly, helpful, and genuinely wanted to make sure you had a great stay. Beautiful pool. Rooms were nice and clean. Little diner in front of motel and you get a discount.

"First stay at the Forum Motor Inn"
Normally I can stay with family when I visit Ocean City, NJ, but we had an overflow of family so some of the family stayed at the Forum Motor Inn. I liked that the room had two entrances - one was inside and the other to balcony overlooking the pool. The room was a nice size and included a microwave and small refrigerator (but no coffee pot that I could see) Even though it was on a busy street, I was surprised how quiet it was in the room. The hotel manager (possibly the owner) was very solicitious and when there was a minor issue it was fixed immediately. I liked that they had a restaurant adjacent to the motor inn - you could even order room service or have the meal delivered pool side. Tip for parking - there is also a lot across the street and there is a 15 minute space right in front of the lobby that you can use to load and unload your luggage. Once you are parked, you shouldn't have to use your car. You are within easy walking distance of the boardwalk, beach and other attractions. There is a big pool and a kiddie pool right outside your door. One thing I'd wish for in the future - lower price, but that may not be possible with getting a room in OCNJ during a peak July weekend.

"For a motor inn, very clean and professional."
I haven't stayed at a motel or motor inn at the Jersey shore since I was 21. The Forum was very professional with a lobby and staff, an attached small restaurant and a nice pool that seemed to be cleaned every day. It is one block away from 8th St. entrance to boardwalk. I have read other reviews about cleanliness and I don't think it's for lack of trying, but more based on keeping up with busy periods during the summer and whoever may have stayed in room last. It is in a good location, has a nice pool and a great breakfast/ lunch place directly across the street, "The OC Surf Cafe". We ate there once each of the three days we stayed and everything was great.

"One Night"
We checked in late, around 1230 am. Nothing was open except McDonald's and Wawa so that was disappointing. Only complaint I would have since I didn't stay there long enough to use all of the amenities was that the beds we had in rm 301 were extremely hard. Maybe they were new mattresses but I woke up with all sorts of aches and pains.

We enjoyed our stay, reception, maid, on up to hotel owner was wonderful. Very clean, well maintained. Location is great, restaurant on premises, pool, free parking. We wanted to use the beach on our last day, they told us to keep our car there, and that we were welcome to use their showers, towels, blow dryer, etc if we wished before we headed home. Awesome place you will not be disappointed.

"not worth price"
Room was clean and close to beach but for 100.00 less I would have walked an extra block to the beach and boardwalk. For that price I expected much higher ammenities and quality of bed. The mattress felt like a board and pillows were flat.

"old hotel that needs updating"
The room was expensive for what it was. The bathroom shower was a joke. Only half the water came out of the shower head & the rubber mat on the tub floor was slippery & outdated. There was no coffee pot in the room & when I inquired about it, they told me only the suites got coffee pots. I asked if I could pay extra for one & they said they had no extras. I was also appalled that I had to PAY for ice in the room! The price we paid a night, I thought we'd at least get free ice! There was a pingpong table in the rec room, but you had to go buy ping pong balls at the front desk in order to play. Overall, the room just felt very old, dark, & outdated. The only plus was the location, just one block from the boardwalk. I will not choose to stay here again. Very disappointing.

"Nice motel would love to stay there again"
We stayed one night in July, and we loved it. It was perfect for us, one block to the boardwalk, bike rental and just a few blocks to Oves for breakfast! The staff was so nice. We got there early, and although our room wasn't ready, they let us park in their lot, which saved us $10 parking fee. They provided beach tags for both days (saved us $20), and let us park there the second day even though we checked out (saved us another $10). Although we didn't use the pool it was very nice. The room and bathroom were very clean and beds were comfortable. We hope to be back!

"Very clean and great service"
Booked this last minute for a long weekend get away. Little nervous about the age of the hotel but all the reviews were so positive so we decided to give it a try. I am so happy we did. The staff could not have been nicer or more helpful. The room was the cleanest room I have ever stayed in at a beach hotel. Great location just 1 block from the boardwalk. We have 2 toddlers so the pool and especially the kiddy pool were great when we were done with the beach. My wife was never a big fan of the Jersey shore before this trip. Now she can't wait to go back.

"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.

"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.

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.'

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.
