Love staying at the Forum. The family owners are terrific and the rooms are top notch, Close to everything including beach and boardwalk. Fun around the pool after th beach in the late afternoon. There's a small game room for the kids and a quiet sundeck on the top floor.

After reading Trip Advisor reviews for Cape May, NJ and Ocean City, NJ, I had decided to pick a Cape May hotel as my first choice for a one night stay in September. Sorry, all booked up. Okay, second choice, The Forum in O.C. The other O.C. hotels where I‘ve stayed in the past were the Port O Call and...

For this type of property this place was excellent. The rooms are clean, good sized and they have a little mini-fridge and microwave in the unit. The staff is super friendly. This place is not the Ritz and does not advertise to be. If you are looking for a high end hotel this is not the place for you. If...

My daughter and I just stayed at the Forum Motor Inn last weekend for the United Methodist Youth Conference at St. Peter's Church. We had a wonderful stay. The room was clean. The bed was extremely comfortable. The pool was immaculate. The onsite cafe has great breakfast food and is reasonably priced. We ate their both mornings. I can't say...

We stayed at the Forum Motor Inn this summer for the first time. The room was very clean and quiet, the beds were firm but comfortable, the location was great, and it was convenient having a good cafe on site. However, what was most incredible and outstanding was the service. They went above and beyond. We will be back next...

We've been staying at the Forum Motor Inn for at least the past 7 years. The staff is wonderful and the rooms are always clean. The pool area is a great place to relax and the boardwalk and beach are a short walk from the motel.

Stayed here for two nights. Close to beach, boardwalk and downtown OC. Instead of holding a cash deposit for beach tags they just charge your card if you don't return them...I love this idea because other hotels hold $25 per beach tag, I want my cash handy. Pool area is nice with lots of seating and there are chairs outside...

This centrally located (one block from the boardwalk) motel has been a staple in Ocean City for decades. Despite its age, however, it's well maintained. Even though the dated architecture cannot be changed, the exterior looks good with management obviously making sure it stays refreshed. The same can be said of the room we occupied - the furnishings appeared relatively...

When I called (in July) they had availability for just one night during the weekend. I didn't have much luck with other hotels so we booked it and I hoped it would be a good place. We had a great stay! The rooms and bathroom were clean. The staff was very helpful - we needed an extra blanket and towels...
