The hospitality of the hosts, Vicki and Charlie, is exceptional. Parking is convenient behind the Inn. Breakfast is tastfully plated and enjoyed one breakfast out on the porch because of the nice weather. Enjoyed sitting on the porch in rocking chairs to people and ocean watch.

Superb Porch and Deck

5 of 5 stars

Excellent room and very quiet. Parking in alley is good but a little tight. Superb porch and deck right next to the boardwalk. Great location , plenty of shops all around, all within walking distance. A little pricey - but it's august on the oceanfront. Breakfast was excellent!

Vintage Boardwalk B&B

5 / 5
5 of 5 stars

What a vintage boardwalk B&B. A true hidden gem among the many choices of hotels. This cottage like B&B is the perfect pick for couples looking for a romantic weekend get away. From the quaint Victorian style rooms and decor to the wonderful hospitality you will feel right at home upon arrival. Vicki & Charlie go out of their way to make you feel comfortable. From the framed welcome board with your name on it, bowl of Hershey chocolates, freshly baked cookies, bags of popcorn, sweet tea, coffee, ice cream, bowl of mints and gourmet breakfast there is nothing left to want. They also offer bikes, umbrellas, beach towels all free to use as you please.The house is on 10th street and is a perfect location for the boardwalk. It has a wonderful porch with ample seating (rocking chairs) with nice accent lighting at night. If you are looking for a romantic get away look no further then the Inn on the Ocean!

Never Disappoints

Just returned from our 11th annual weekend at this fabulous place. We fell in love with it the first time we stayed there and haven't been disappointed for the last 11 years. The location is outstanding, the breakfasts are "to die for", the rooms are very comfortable and the innkeepers, Charlie and Vicki, are great!! Just sitting on the porch each morning, watching the beach, looking to spot some dolphins and sipping coffee makes you want to return. For anyone who has never been here, you will love it !!!

All Time Favorite Place To Stay

5 / 5
5 of 5 stars

One of my all time favorite places to stay. I feel like I have come home when I stay with Vickie and Charlie. They make you feel like part of the family. I have Celiac and Vickie always makes sure to take care of me. I do hate leaving good reviews for places I love as I am selfish and don't want the word to get out how great this place is.    But, they have everything you need for a trip to the beach; beach chairs, towels, umbrellas, bikes, refrigerator in the basement. The breakfasts are outstanding and sitting on the porch eating breakfast with a view of the ocean is the best. Then sitting on the porch, relaxing and people watching is one of my favorite activities. If you go away disappointed, well then you just can't be pleased.

Very Nice

The Inn was just what we wanted for a weekend getaway. We arrived and were greeted by Vicki who told us where to park and gave us our parking tag and room key. We had the Veranda room which connected to the front porch of the Inn. It was a charming room and adequate for the two of us. Vicki made a homemade breakfast and her husband Charlie assisted with serving us on the front porch. The Inn was quiet and comfortable. It's a very nice place for a couple's getaway or for a single person who wants a little R&R and sit on the porch and read or watch the tourist stroll the boardwalk.

Best Christmas Present Ever

5 / 5
5 of 5 stars

For Christmas last year my wife and I decided to give ourselves a mini vacation in Ocean City. She picked An Inn on the Ocean because it was the only B & B on the boardwalk. It turned out to be a great choice! Our hosts were amazing people. Very friendly and accommodating. The Inn was beautifully decorated and the best feature was the porch on the boardwalk. We were served a delicious breakfast their each day and had the opportunity to meet the other guests. The beach is out the front door and across the boardwalk. The Inn provides bicycles, beach chairs, beach towels and beach umbrellas for guests. Private parking is provided behind the Inn. The room was nicely furnished and the bed was comfortable. We had a great time there and will be staying again.

Vickie and Charlie are excellent hosts

Vickie and Charles are excellent hosts! They are warm and always helpful. The house and the rooms look exactly as shown on the pictures! The house was Beautiful and clean, the rooms were well equipped - downstairs they have bikes, beach chairs, and umbrellas, with a refrigerator/ freezer with ice. We fully enjoyed the homemade breakfast which was delicious and it was great to meet other couples from around the country. On our last day we went to the beach early and missed breakfast, Miss Vicky brought us breakfast on the beach- We feel that was over and above nice!! We would definitely recommend "Inn on the Ocean" and would stay there again

We were very excited to find such a sweet place right along the boardwalk. Although we were a little disappointed in our room - Hunt Room - there were many other qualities that shouldn't be overlooked. Along with the outstanding location, the inn had the best breakfast of our entire trip. You don't want to miss it! They also offered beach chairs, bikes, and ice-cream. This is definitely a place you should consider on your next visit.

We just spent a delightful weekend at the Inn. We were the only guests on a mid Nov. getaway. We felt like family after we left. The owners were so helpful with suggestions. The breakfasts were sinfully scrumptious. We have been to B&B's all over the world and this is right up there with the best.

Amazing B&B right on the water

This bed and breakfast is hands down the best one my husband and I have stayed in. The house is amazing. We stayed in the Oceania Room, which is on the second floor with the balcony facing the ocean. It was so relaxing to sit on the balcony and watch the water, so peaceful and quiet. Vicki is an amazing cook, she totally accommodated my dietary need. I have celiac and cannot have gluten. We definitely had plenty for breakfast each morning. I would highly recommend this place!! We will be going back.

We stayed at this wonderful bed and breakfast for 2 nights last week. Our kids treated us for our 40th anniversary and paid for the nights but left it up to us to decide where to go. We are so happy that we choose An Inn on the Ocean in Ocean City, MD! Our room led right to the porch which led right to the boardwalk and the ocean was just a few feet away! The breakfast served by the owners, Vicki and Charlie, were delicious! We also met some wonderful people while there that we will remain friends with forever! Treat yourself to a romantic getaway and stay at An Inn on the Ocean. You will love it!

We love this wonderful B&B on the Boardwalk

5 / 5
5 of 5 stars

I cannot believe we didn't discover this beach treasure until 3 years ago! The Inn is on the Boardwalk at 10th Street, which is a quiet area, but not that far of a walk to where all the action is toward the inlet. Owners, Vicki and Charlie Barrett, welcome you into their gorgeous Inn where each room has its own theme and are all beautifully appointed. They serve a delicious gourmet breakfast every morning either in their dining room or on the covered porch in good weather which is a real treat. Included in the price guests are invited to use the Inn's beach towels, beach umbrellas and bicycles; and free WiFi. A refrigerator for guests' use includes an ice machine with ice cream treats in the freezer. And you'll always find some type of homemade goodie in the dining room every afternoon. Ask Vicki about their murder mystery weekends which include a delicious dinner- a lot of fun! Sit in the living room to read or relax; or enjoy the rocking chairs on the porch while watching the ocean and people strolling by. This is our "place to stay" in OC-- perfect in every way.

Just finished our annual long weekend visit to Inn on the Ocean with our best friends. This place never disappoints us. The breakfasts continue to be wonderful, the innkeepers are always more like family and the breeze on the porch is so calming. Just love our yearly visits. Already booked for next year again. Highly recommend a visit to this great place !!!

I stayed at the Inn on the Ocean over July 4th weekend -- it was my first trip to Ocean City. The ambiance in the home and the personal care my family received superseded any expectations. The meals were personalized and delicious. Every detail was taken into consideration. In a place where there are thousands of visitors we were made to feel as though our well being and satisfaction were the most important. If you are planning a trip away in a quaint B&B look no further, it doesn't get any better.

This is a wonderful place to stay. The room was spacious, comfortably and came complete with a new bathroom. Our hosts, Charley and Vicki were so nice and I want to thank them for their gracious hospitality. The breakfasts were out of this world. If you are not into the commercial, run of the mill rentals in OC then this place to stay.

My 3 sisters and I had a lovely stay here. We rode the complimentary bikes on the boardwalk and walked to several great restaurants suggested by the Inn. Vicki cooked us a five star breakfast on Sunday morning that rivaled the Greenbrier - egg soufflé, a scrumptious mushroom, sausage ragu over a cheddar biscuit, roasted cherry tomatoes and a beautiful fruit salad! We ran into an old friend at church before breakfast and brought her back to the inn. Vicki set a place for her and served her as well! What a gracious host! Thank you, thank you.

This old-style villa is located right by the boardwalk. If you can get the Oceana Suite, you will also have a perfect view of the ocean from your bed! Other rooms offer more partial sea views, but are still very nice. Our friendly hostess cooked up a tasty and varied breakfast that set us up nicely for the day. The house is very personally decorated, and it is easy to feel right at home. The veranda on the front of the house offers a great place for sea and people watching with a cup of coffee in hand. We expect to come back!

Just a short note to say thank you for hosting my family this past June. The birthday dinner was superb and the hors d'oeuvres were utterly fantastic. After our wonderful stay, I think you should change the name of your house to "Palace on the Ocean' or rather "Home on the Ocean". All of my family said that they really felt at home in your wonderful home filled with French provincials, old America memorabilia and unusual artifacts throughout the Palace and in all the rooms. The veranda, with all the wonderful chairs is a place to be if you are people watching. Boy the bikinis are getting smaller and smaller! Even at my age, though I am on a diet, I still like to read the menu. All of that is memorable for me, but what I enjoyed the most is my wonderful hug from a fantastic lady.  

With affection, George E. Aubin

PS: Who said there is not a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, it's at 1001 Atlantic Ave. in Ocean City.
