Great Location, Great Beach!
Posted Jan 19, 2017
I read all of the reviews prior to our visit and was worried we were gonna have a really bad experience. The problem being that there are no other hotels in the area on the beach, so we went ahead anyway, albeit with lowered expectations. Much to our suprise the OCEAN PLACE wasn't too bad at all. The staff were very friendly from the time we checked in to the time we checked out. Our room, which was on the 5th floor, where they had permitted smoking AND pets at one time, was clean and odor free. It was clearly dated but nice nevertheless. The tiki bar, the restaurants, the lounging area by the boardwalk were beautiful. The only real problem we had were the guests! Rude NY/NJ'ers who treated the staff and those around them like crap. As they say - the worst thing about NY/NJ is it's full of New Yorkers/New Jerseyites. Lastly, the beach chairs and umbrellas were brand new and very comfortable!
I would recommend this place to anyone - provided they realize it's still a work in progress. I'm looking forward to seeing the whole place re-done....it'll be my new favorite place north of MD.
