About Us

Restaurant. Bar. Boutique hotel.



When it comes time to plan your vacation there’s a new and modern choice located along the Jersey shore called daddy O. This is not your typical “sleepy” overnight spot, as cool as its name, daddy O is a 22-room boutique hotel that boasts a modern, urban chic interior. Complete with a restaurant, bar, outdoor dining and a rooftop bar, daddy O is located just five doors from the ocean on Long Beach Island!

Enjoy lounging on the sun deck or strolling on the sandy beach while staying at daddy O. Savor delicious contemporary American Cuisine in daddy O’s stylish restaurant. With amenities like flat screen televisions and wireless internet connections in each guest room, along with luxurious amenities including ultra plush mattresses, fine linens, and rain showers in the marble and natural wood decorated baths, daddy O is the perfect destination for a weekend escape in any season and ideal for week-long visits to the shore.

The year-round hotel was created with comfort and style in mind. You’ll notice this when you arrive by the keen attention to detail and style – from the streamlined hallways with “runway” style wall mounted led light fixtures to the distinctive glass-enclosed wine cellar linking the restaurant to the hotel lobby. Guest rooms feature contemporary wall sconces offering incandescent and halogen options at the bedside, and the ivory colored leather furniture and ottomans have been used throughout the lobby areas and the rooms.

Outside, the vintage seashore architecture is visible in the cedar shingles, red roof, white board and batten-like, old-time construction with a wrap around porch. There is a rooftop sun deck/bar with ocean and bay views. The deck is available for hotel guests as well as private parties and receptions.
