We went here for a 2 night get away with our two young children one is 2 years old and the other is 5 months. Rooms were big enough for a pack and play (which we brought) and still had some room to walk. Room was very clean including fridge. The pool was large and the kiddie pool was perfect... More

The location of the Forum is great- close to the boardwalk, beach, and the yummy OC Cafe, which is right across the street. The staff is warm and friendly, and the cleaning staff do a good job keeping up with the room. The room itself, although clean, could use some updating and the air conditioning is very loud! If you... More

We stayed here for a couple days in early June and the rooms were spotless as well as the lobby. Great location walking distance to everything and very relaxing couple of days. I would highly recommend the Forum to anyone. We parked our car when we checked in and didn't need it again till we checked out. Great location and... More

For the shore, this is a great place to stay. A few blocks away from the boardwalk & very convenient. The rooms are large, a nice pool & a great family run place. We have stayed here many times and they are very consistent. Don't expect the Ritz, just a clean safe place to stay.

It was a fantastic stay, the front desk were awesome, very informative on everything you ask them. The rooms were great, comfortable and very clean . Will stay there again for sure. Angie's restaurant on grounds was good and they even had pool side orders.

Our room at the Forum was very clean and comfortable. Usually I don't sleep well when away, but these beds were very comfortable and I slept well. A parking spot was provided as were beach tags.we really enjoyed swimming in the pool and being a short walk away from the beach and Boardwalk. I would stay here again.

My wife and I stayed here for a few nights in June. When looking at the various hotels in OCNJ it was difficult to decide where to stay. We decided on The Forum for its proximity to the beach, boardwalk and having a pool. We arrived, were greeted with a warm and inviting welcome, through explanation of the process, parking,... More

The Forum Motor Inn is a special situation, so it's "overall rating" is hard to peg. If you are looking for a property with clean rooms close to the beach / boardwalk, and a friendly informative staff, this may be the place for you. After all, it's all about location and the choices in Ocean City are pretty narrow. More... More

We've stayed here on numerous occasions. The rooms are clean, although dated. There was a fridge and a microwave in our room. The king-size bed was comfortable, and the pillows were generous. The showerhead is a water saver, and if you're tall like me, you have to bend a bit but it works. The hot and cold water handles turn... More

Stayed here at end of August. Clean, central to everything, and super friendly and accommodating make this an absolutely wonderful place to stay. My children (and myself) loved it, and the kids already want me to book the exact same room for next year!
