Doesn't even supply cheap shampoo or hair dryers. Fan in room covered in layers of dust as if never ever cleaned. Hardly any electrical outlets. Loud. Didn't expect much but didn't expect it to be such a dive either

We’re sorry you did not enjoy your stay with us. It seems you stayed in one of our standard rooms that has not yet been renovated. If you decide to give us another chance, please ask to see one of our newly renovated rooms. We do provide shampoo and hair dryers to our guests upon request. Our office staff is... More

Just returned from Atlantic Beach where we spent one night at the Oceanana. We were supposed to spent two but we felt one day of fishing was enough for our family. We were looking for a bit more luxury than the Oceanana had to offer too so we checked out a day early. They were very gracious about refunding our... More

Way too expensive even for a Holiday for what you get in return. We had room # 235 which had not been remodeled yet... it appeared as though less than half of the rooms have been remodeled? They had different doors. Room 235 had the old wood paneling on the walls and something boxed in on the ceiling. When we... More

We're sorry about the problems you had with the room. Thank you very much for bringing all this to our attention, we have addressed each issue accordingly. It is not usual for our staff to be unfriendly, and even though I am happy no one was rude to you, any treatment that is less than friendly is not acceptable. I... More

We stayed here for a long weekend while we were going diving. The hotel looks pretty dumpy from the outside but the rooms were nice and clean. The hotel was conveniently located to nice restaurants and the beach. I would suggest trying amos mosquitos or island grille while you stay here. We are not a fishing family but it seems... More

We recently stayed at The Oceana for a surf contest. Customer service was great. The hotel is working on updates. Our room was clean. If you are looking for a 4 star hotel don't stay here. The breakfast provided by the hotel was continental but very good. We stayed here because of the convenience and location of the hotel where... More

Spent the 4th of July at the Oceanana with our "Oceanana Family"! As always we had a wonderful time. We are a group( about 50 of us) of family and friends who share our vacation time every year at the Oceanana. The motel was built in the 1950s but the family has put forth effort to update the buildings. The... More

Stayed for 2 nights in a 2nd floor standard room facing the main parking lot and enjoyed the recent upgrades of new furniture, new AC unit, new flat panel tv, larger refrigerator and most importantly, new doors with a key card and steel handle. The old sliding doors were charming in their own way but they didn't always close completely... More

I am 37 yrs old and finally went on a vacation with my husband, mom, and dad. They have stayed there before. This is a wonderful place to go and fish off their pier as long as you want to and not worry about your room. We stayed in May. My husband, 2 daughters, and I are going back in... More

The staff is great, the location is perfect, but the actual building itself needs a LOT of work. For $100 a night in a small, non-oceanfront room, I want to be able to actually wash my hair IN the shower, not having to lean over the side of the tub and use the faucet. (The shower head is approximately 5... More

We checked into room 111, the one bedroom suite, on a Saturday evening. It had been a long day and we went straight to the room...no walking to see the beach at all. My girls immediately took their shoes off and started running around the room and within 10 minutes the bottoms of their feet were black, and you could... More

We're sorry you had such a negative experience at our motel. We have our rooms treated regularly, but occasionally a critter will escape our efforts. We apologize you saw one. According to our records, you turned in your keys and notified us you just wanted to leave, at which point you were apologized to and, according to our records, we... More
