We didn't know what to expect from this motel as we booked it last minute (day before we were arriving!) But we were pleasantly surprised!! The motel was clean & accommodating to all our needs. The staff is FANTASTIC!!!!! They were so nice & friendly & welcoming to not only us but to our puppy (Duke) that we brought along!!!... More

First and Priority for us is Dog Friendly! We have a Great Dane and English Bull Dog. These two adore the beach as much as we do! We are respectful of the seasonal beach restrictions for dogs allowed in places such as the beach so we make it a point to go late April/early May as to avoid the majority... More

I stayed here for several days with my dog for the 10th Annual Doodle Romp. The room was simple but clean. The outside deck was perfect for us to gather with our dogs and snacks in the afternoon. Management was great. I have already booked a room for next year.

The Atlantic Oceanside is a quaint little hotel that is accomodating dogs. My boyfriend and I have spent two weekends here. I don't agree with the terrible reviews. Unfortunately, the hotel cannot control the behavior of other guests or dogs. Since it is a dog friendly hotel, guests needed to understand that dogs bark and play with one another. If... More

We have stayed here several times of the years and once again felt it was a nice pet-friendly hotel in a great location. They welcome any size mutt which is a plus for us. The staff is pleasant and helpful even offered to make me a fresh pot of coffee in the afternoon. The rooms are not fancy but very... More

My wife and I booked a room during the Sea Witch Festival with our 70 pound Lab/Shepard mix dog. Check in was easy, and we were supplied with maps, time schedule, etc for the activities planned for the festival. This hotel is very pet friendly, and we were pleased there was no issue on weight limit for our dog. We... More

This was my second time staying here for Greyhounds Reach The Beach...we had a GREYT time! The rooms are perfect for dogs, friendly staff, easy access to the beach, and also a nice deck patio for socializing. We had a very relaxing stay and hated to go back home. The only complaint I have is that there isn't a coffee... More

We stayed at the AO for Greyhounds Reach the Beach, 2014. The staff is professional and hospitable, the rooms clean and everyone is so dog-friendly! Vending from the third floor was a bit of a hike since there is no elevator, but that did not stop success. Love this place, the nearby BAKED Coffee Bar (Pam and staff were so... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here one night with our two dogs. Its nothing fancy, but its a good place to stay if you have pets and you're on a budget. The microwave was pretty old, but at least its something. There was a mini-fridge as well so that was nice. The hotel is a short, 3 min walk to... More
