very comfortable accommodations

Posted Sep 21, 2014
Pros: People were very considerate and friendly. Had an elevator and free parking so all good there. Would certainly return
Cons: Everything suited us for the time we were there, Small restaurant on site, good service, mediocre food. Tried one breakfast, one dinner.
Location: Right in the center of town.One very long block to the beach, boardwalk and amusements, and four blocks from the main shopping area on Asbury Ave..
very nice accommodations. Only dislike was the bus noises outside of motel at the lights. Small refrig adequate but no freezer. Did keep cans cold. Small micro very handy

Very nice motel and staff. Lot's of nice small restaurants nearby and at the hotel. Did not like paying 25 cents for a bucket of ice.

Location

Posted Sep 13, 2014 on Hotels.com
It was a truly pleasant 4 days. Only a block from the beach and easy walk to city shops. The service was good and room clean. It could definitely use a spruce-up in bathroom. Would have liked to see a coffee and tea maker available. Otherwise a good stay, will book again next year.

The hotel staff was fabulous!! They were so friendly and everytime we needed them they were there in less than 5 minutes. Location is good. Just a block and a half from the beach and the middle if the boardwalk!

Older Hotel, but quiet & clean

Posted Aug 16, 2014
Pros: Close proximity to the boardwalk is a great feature!
Cons: An upgrade to the rooms and renovation would be nice ......
Location: Boardwalk has alot of shops, cafes and restaurants within walking distance, as well as a McDonalds and Dunkin for those on a budget.
Forum Motor Lodge is a very nice, clean quiet hotel very close to the boardwalk. A short distance of one block gets you to the beach. Staff were very courteous and accomodating. Hotel was clean and neat but is definitely a much older hotel than I thought.... example bathroom fixtures and tub/vanity were worn and in need of an upgrade. Another thing to keep in mind is their outdoor pool CLOSES at 6pm! This was disappointing cause after a day at the beach, an evening swim would have been nice. Was not aware of the 6pm closing each day! Also, beach passes are provided for a 3day stay or longer but only 2 per room even though we had three in our room, Had to pay for the third adult each day to get a beach pass.

Thank you for your very thoughtful review and compliments. We would like to point out that we normally close the swimming pool from 7PM to 8PM depending on if there are guests using it after 6PM. Chlorinating and cleaning are done in the evening so it is sparkling for you the next day. Thank you for choosing The Forum for your vacation in Ocean City NJ. Hopefully we will see you again soon!

Great location and great service. The only complaint is that the bathroom is on the small side and there is no room to put anything especially if you needed to get changed in the bathroom when multiple people were in the room. Also could have used another outlet. Was a little challenging when trying to charge things for four people.
