This was our first time staying here. My Dad & Mom stayed previous in the year and loved it. We came for the off season, family time, small get away, and free fishing. We decided at the last minuet to come late Thursday night instead of arriving the next day. We arrived at around 12:00 am. The staff was helpful... More

First of all, we are saddened that you had such a bad experience after years of excellent service. I responded to this same review from on our Facebook page just last week, but am unable to retrieve it for some reason. I did try to find your name in our system, but it seems the reservation was not made in... More

I stayed there 1 week for a reunion and the Morehead City Seafood Festival. They went out of there way to accommodate by vision disability. Rooms were clean and efficient. Good temperature control and Wifi. Will definitely return.

Ok... It's been a few weeks since my husband, 18 month grandson & myself stayed there. My husband still talks about the nasty smell in the room (like wet dog) the roach he seen & the NASTY, NASTY, NASTY, did I say NASTY carpet. It would turn your feet BLACK. (He said he's stayed there twice, his first & last)... More

To start with, when I made the reservation, the ladies were very nice, polite, and helpful. I had called a few other hotels in the area and they acted like I had inconvenienced them by calling. When we got here (despite the problems we had on the road...grrr) the room was nice and clean, the shower was GREAT and the... More

This motel has been here since before I was born. It is dated, and in many ways it is obvious. However, any flaws associated with the age of the location are compensated by so many other things. It is still family-owned, and the staff is so super friendly. They obviously care about their jobs and their guests. It has a... More

My family and I have stayed at the Oceanana twice now. My son loves all the playground! This is NOT a 5 star motel. It is old and is in need of repair. We stayed in one of the Down East rooms. The bathroom is in desperate need of an exhaust fan! We had another couple with us so when... More

This is not a chain hotel and it was so nice to have the friendly staff greet us! We really enjoyed the stay! It is an older place however they have done a really great job to keep it up too date (except the old "key" open door! HaHa!) No really, it was nice and the doors to the rooms... More

My family and I spent the weekend down there. The office staff said that we had one of the updated rooms but just a coat of paint and two new picture of sea shells don't do this room any justice. The carpet was nasty and black, the shower was build for short people and it was rusted around the edges.... More

My Dad has been staying here and fishing on the pier for over 40 years. Now, my sisters and I take our parents (for the past 9 years) so we feel like family. They rooms are kept really clean. We enjoy the closeness of the staff, beach, and most of all just meeting up with friends from near and far.
