“Can't be beat”
Reviewed 11 September 2013

We've enjoyed staying at Brown's several times; it's become the only place we consider when going to OC, NJ., and earns and deserves the "Excellent" rating we give to all categories. Its proximity to downtown, boardwalk and beach works well as we move through our 70's. Harmon is a delight to talk with, is so gracious, and breakfast is a treat. The wrap-around porch is wonderful for sitting and drinking coffee before breakfast or reading a book when the weather doesn't cooperate. An Ocean City treasure. Bill and Betty from Easton, PA

Room Tip: We like Room 3 for the king bed, the brightness, and the sitting area by the five windows.

we only stayed one night at the end of april, pre season, and found the place delightful....Harmon, assumingly the owner, was very sociable and helpful with directions around town...the room was more than adequate, comfortable, spacious,quiet, and had a private bath with jetted tub...A location, less than 2 blocks from the beach didnt hurt either...Its located on a corner with a beautiful view of very clean, old buildings, and parking was free in the rear lot....I guess because of the preseason, Harmon left us keep our car there for the afternoon while we walked the boardwalk....He even prepared us a special egg and sausage breakfast due to our dietary no carb diet.....delicious...fresh fruit, juice, eggs and sausage...I would stay again

We stayed one week at Brown's Nostalgia and my husband and I had the best time. The house is so charming and Mr. Brown is one of the nicest folks you ever want to meet ! The place is always neat and clean and whatever you may need , just ask. We have stayed at many B & B's and the breakfasts are " ok " but here they were FANTASTIC ! . I told Mr. Brown that our only complaint is that he was giving us way too much food ! Every day was something different for breakfast... piping hot and so good you will want the recipes ! We would stay there again in a heartbeat and I have already told a few folks about this wonderful , charming place and they plan on going in the near future ! We look forward to our next stay at Browns . I forgot to mention that he is also in a very good location... close walk to town and the boardwalk ! This place can't be beat !!! Sharon and Tom Skibbee

Room Tip: Every one of the rooms at Browns is charming... you can't go wrong choosing any of his rooms.

We've been staying at Browns for 10 years. Harmon, the owner, is a kind man who is always very welcoming and interesting to talk to. The rooms are clean, and the house is only a couple of blocks from the beach. Breakfast is always great. We keep coming back because we always feel welcome here. What a lovely home... You'll never be disappointed here.

The family running this B&B is amazing and made sure we were fully accommodated. The 85 year old owner is full of wit and so warm. He told us to feel free to run around in the house in stocking feet and while we stayed to consider the house our home and use all the rooms. Great front porch for relaxing in the mornings and evenings. Tons of board games and bikes to use. Super close to the boardwalk and restaurants and they recommended several non-touristy restaurants that were good. Very clean. Comfortable beds. Breakfasts were delicious!!!! Decor is charming, even if dated. We had a great time and it was wonderful to stay in a family-run home that is over 100 years old.

This was our first stay at Brown's Nostalgia. We were not disappointed. It is an old fashioned bed and breakfast with clean rooms, good service, and excellent breakfasts. Our host was really friendly and hard working. Free parking is provided to the rear of the house or on the street in front. The boardwalk and beach are a short 2 blocks away. For a relaxing break, we enjoyed the front porch rockers.

Stayed for our 20th anniversary. Lovely home and charming hosts.
We felt "at home" here and will definately be back soon!
Marjorie and Harmon (the innkeepers/owners) are great hosts and fun to talk to. The room was very nice and all is clean. Close walk to the beach. Breakfast was AWESOME and the coffee is some of the best I have had in Ocean City.
