Lovely and charming house, extremely nice hosts, room and bathroom totally clean, excellent value, would stay there again and would recommend to friends and family. Traveled solo and had no safety concerns. Other guests very nice. Quiet by 10 PM. Thank you Brown's!

We had a great time in Ocean City. The Bed and Breakfast is close to the boardwalk, which was very efficient. Harmon and all of the employees were super nice. Breakfast each morning was very good. We will definitely consider staying there again.

Best and safest B&B we have been in.

As aways, Harmon, members of his family, and his employees were gracious and helpful, making our short stay delightful. Have been staying at Brown's for years and have never considered looking at another B & B in Ocean City.

Great time at Browns...

This is our second time at Browns. One this and the last trip everything was Excellent. The room was perfect and the house was quite clean. Breakfast is always special at Browns. This time it was French Toast with caramel and bananas on day 1 and day 2 was a sausage and egg quiche. Very peaceful and pleasant environment.

Great location in OCNJ

One of the friendliest places to stay at the Jersey Shore. Not only is Harmon a wonderful host, but also his attitude spills over into all his guests.
