Nice location on the beach. Ocean front view was nice. Not to far from boardwalk. Front desk girls were polite and friendly. Very clean rooms. I was happy and surprised our room was ready earlier then normal check in. We would come back to this place again. We had a wonderful time.

We stayed at the Atlantic Oceanfront in from 8-10-13 and were booked to stay till 8-17-13 but we were having such a great time we stayed an extra night and checked out on 8-18-13 instead. We really enjoyed our stay at this little gem in Ocean City for sure, our hotel room was on the 5th floor ocean front and the view was absolutley incredible. Our with was so picture perfect we would shut the air-conditioner off at night and sleep with the sliding glass doors open, theres nothing like the sound of ocean to put you to sleep. The front desk staff was awesome any request or need we had was handled in a very timely matter, EXTRA SPECIAL thanks to Chelsea for making out stay so great. The only thing that needs worked on is the parking, not enough spaces for the cars staying at the hotel. Other than than that we loved it and plan on returning again next year for sure. Thank you to everyone at the Atlantic Oceanfront Inn we had a wonderful time in Ocean City.

Room Tip: If you want a perfect view of the ocean stay on the 5th floor you'll love it!

Dear recent guest, thank you for choosing the Atlantic Oceanfront Inn as your beachfront vacation accommodations! We work hard every year to update and expand upon our hotel and improve customer experience. There is no better location that directly on the beach, and we are so happy the weather was beautiful for your stay. Chelsea is a valued staff member who loves the beach and loves being able to see the beach from the front desk. We do apologize for your parking inconvenience, we only allow one space per room reservation, but there is plenty of street parking surrounding the hotel. Stay tuned for great rates and book your vacation early to save big! Thanks again for being our guest, we look forward to having you again for your next Ocean City vacation!

This hotel was AMAZING !!! Directly on the beach, close to everything. 5 min ride to the boardwalk. Great for families. Far enough away from boardwalk so it's still quiet. But close enough to get there really quick. I am in Love. Chelsea at the front desk is so amazing and soooo helpful. We were there 3 days and it seems like she never went home.

This was our 1st stay at the Atlantic Ocean Front Inn and I have to say I was quite impressed overall with the experience. It had a great location and Oceanfront dunes view room that made it very quant and affordable. It was a simple walk to the beach and a short ride to all the OC attractions. I would place this as an average hotel that is all about location and affordability. The room we had offered a kitchenette with 2 queen beds which made it perfect for a family of 4. Some of the cons for this hotel included the parking, lack of staff and the age of the hotel. There is limited parking, which in my opinion should be limited to 1 vehicle per unit. Chelsea at the front desk was trying to multitask three different problems, guest complaining that she didn't get what she booked on Expedia, some one wanting their 2 complentry chairs and someone trying to check in. We arrived at 3:30pm and our room was still unavailable, which makes me want to believe that they are just understaffed. Some of the beds could use replacing since the are visabilty sagging in the middle, along with updating of the bathrooms. Overall great experience, just get them more help and little updating and it could be a diamond in the rough.....

We had our stay from 8/10-8/13 and I cannot say enough good things about this place. The staff was warm and friendly not just to myself and my husband but to our 8 yo and 1 yo, the young lady who checked us in and was there for a majority of our stay struck up conversations with the kids which says a lot in my book. The entire staff was friendly and inviting, we never felt like an inconvenience when we would ask for something. The room (#403) was great! Sure there were some things that had normal wear and tear but nothing gross or neglected. The only thing that was a little annoying was the sliding door to the balcony. It was hard to get going and pretty noisy if you weren't careful and from the sound of it it seemed like other rooms were the same. Having said that, it certainly wasn't a big deal, just something to note. Our room also didn't seem to have a lot of spare outlets. We were able to make it work but again something to note, you may want to bring an outlet multiplier. The view was incredible too, their location really worked well for us. Enough activity that you didn't feel isolated but not so much that you were inconvenienced with constant noise.

ETA: There are some concerns regarding the elevator's safety inspection being out of date since April 2013. I did check and they do have a current inspection that passed but they have not hung it in the elevator yet so please do not let that stop you from booking here! They also supplied us with a crib (pack n play) for the baby which I was pleasantly surprised at how clean it was and it was comfortable enough that the 1 yo slept with no issues.

Room Tip: Try to get a room on the 4th or 5th floor if you can as they really do have the best view! Bring an outlet multiplier if you have one.

Dear valued guest, thanks so much for choosing the Atlantic Oceanfront Inn for your family vacation accommodations. Our staff is some of the best in Ocean City, including our property Manager Matthew. He takes his job, and the experience of his customers personally. We believe that happy staff will in turn make our guests happy. Thanks again for the clarification on our inspection sticker, we definitely don't let anything like this slip through the cracks.

Thanks for your review, we can't wait to have you as our guest again!
