“Friendly, family-owned inn with a great location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 August 2014

Each year our cycling club "takes over" this wonderful inn and uses it as home base for our multi-day rides. The large wrap around porch makes a great gathering place for socializing. It is about 4 blocks from the beach and very near many wonderful restaurants. Street parking is often available and, if not, an inexpensive public lot is across the street. Some rooms have private baths, other use common restrooms and shower. All rooms have a refrigerator. Rooms are configured from one to three beds to accommodate singles, couples, and families. Even after check out time you can make use of the common showers - great to be able to soak up those last rays of sun on the beach. As with any older property, it is showing signs of wear; but still a great place to stay. A bonus this year was the addition of free wifi.

Room Tip: If a private bathroom is essential for you, be sure to ask for a room that has one. Otherwise there...

My daughter and I stayed over the weekend. Originally it was only available for one night but due to cancellation we were able to make it two. Very clean, we had a private bath but would consider hall if we had to. Loved the fact we were given beach tags and were welcome to clean up after using the beach after checkout.
Not the place to go if you can't do steps, lots of them and narrow as well.

Friendly, family owned, we will consider again!

Room Tip: 3rd floor wouldn't have anyone waling above you.

A great value, considering how much other places cost. We had a hall bathroom, since we reserved late, but it wasn't bad at all. The only time we had to wait for a bathroom was around dinner time/end of beach day. The rest of the time there were plenty of bathrooms to go around. There's a full bath, a shower/tub-only, and a powder room with sink/toilet, so usually one of them was open when we needed it. The location was really nice-about a 15 minute walk with elementary-aged kids (faster without kids). There's municipal parking right across the street, for a quarter an hour, up to 8 hours! The rooms are basic, but clean. I like that there are bunks in some rooms for kids to stay with parents, rather than sharing 2 double beds like we usually do at other motels. The only complaints are the blinds didn't block out the sun completely, so in the morning the sun woke us early and the A/C unit was kinda loud (but I find that is true in most motels).

Room Tip: Call early for private bath, if you want one.

I've been staying at Luray Manor in Ocean City, NJ for 20 years during my summer beach vacation.It's a Victorian type hotel with a big wrap around porch great for socializing with your friends.It is conveniently located at 7th St. and Central Ave. in the prime downtown area of Ocean City near the boardwalk and all the local restaurants.The owners (John and Ruth) are just so nice and make me feel like family every time I go there.You won't have a TV in your room but all the rooms are air conditioned with strong window mounted air conditioners.Rooms are also equipped with a small refrigerator/freezer so you can bring your favorite food into your room ( I prefer to eat my daily bowl of cereal in my room and forego the long wait for breakfast you'll typically find at the local restaurants). There is a TV in the downstairs parlor area and this forces you to get to know and socialize with other vacationers ( a good thing!). The rooms are clean and fresh bath towels and soap plentiful. You'll find the extra towels and soap (at no charge) conveniently located on each floor of Luray. Just toss your old towels in the hamper and get new towels as often as you like. The owners are nice enough to even let you use the hallway showers and free towels and soap AFTER you've checked out ( check-out 11am) so you can still spend time at the beach the day you check out. Luray Manor is simply the most affordable, nicest place to stay in Ocean City since. It's only 4 blocks from the beach and boardwalk and directly across the street from a low cost public parking lot. Finding a free parking space in down town area of Ocean City can be difficult but this particular metered public parking lot always seems to have space.All you need are quarters for the meters. I believe it's no more than @ $1 or $2 to park there all day (parking hours between 9am and 6pm; before 9am and after 6pm this lot is free).This makes it very convenient when you want to drive off the island to places like Somers Point, etc. for fine dining and music.When you return just park in the public parking lot across from Luray which is always pretty empty after 10pm. You should book your vacation at Luray early because if has such a good reputation that rooms get booked early in the season.

Room Tip: You have a choice of getting a room with a private bath or using the hall bath / shower rooms which...

We made a last minute reservation here and discoverd it is such a find! It's not fancy, but I found the owners and the grandchildren so eager to make everyone feel welcome, ie, asked when we wanted to check in vs. telling us when they could have us, lending us beachtags on our last day, and invited us to use the shower after check out and after the beach so we wouldn't be sandy on the drive home.

Small toybox in the common room and child size adirondack chairs on the porch made this a hit with my you son.

Room Tip: FYI - no TV in rooms.

We just came back from our stay from Luray Manor and found the place cozy, clean and the owners were friendly and accomodating. Great location for the family, extremely clean and we would definitely come back again.
