I had booked this room 5 months prior to our stay. When we showed up, it was a lot more dated than the pictures showed. I had reserved and paid for a bayfront room, but when we got there we were told that they overbooked and upgraded our room which was more money. When we got to our room we... More

Absolutely horrible. We arrived at our check in time and had to wait 2 hours for our room to be ready! Not only that, our room was nasty and the front desk was mad at us because they were running behind! I can't stress enough how bad this place is. I've never written a review, but felt it was necessary... More

would go back again, I just wish they would clean up the garbage in front of the rooms, it has such a beautiful view, but the sand in front is drowning with old cigarette butts, bottle caps, and age old paper,

This was my first time staying at the Oceanic and I fully intend to come back again! We have been coming to Ocean City for years and just discovered this place. The staff were friendly and organized. We got there a little early and they said the room would be ready shortly and it was. Although the room is small,... More

The Oceanic Motel is in a perfect location to enjoy the night life and day time activities in Ocean City. While the rooms could use new carpeting and a fresh coat of paint on the walls, our room was clean and served its purpose for our stay. The pool was a nice break from the hot summer weather, and the... More

I've never been accused of being a clean freak. I know that a beach motel is supposed to be sandy, but this was more than that. It was dirty and it forced us to cut our vacation short. We arrived a bit early, and asked if we could check in. The staff said no, but our room would be ready... More

We stayed at the Oceanic Motel for one night on July 13 (though we booked a room for two nights). The motel does have a great location, including a short walk to the public beach, and I liked the free, abundant on-site parking, but that's about as good as it got. We booked through a third-party website, so I'm sure... More

I've stayed in a lot of cheap motels on the Jersey shore, so I was not expecting this place to be fancy or anything. But this motel is so disgusting that I have only been here for a half hour and I am already thinking of leaving early . There Is mold on the ceiling. The entire room reeks like... More

We have stayed here for two years in a row. This is a great hotel. My husband, myself and 2 sons, ages 15 and 12, stay in an inlet Suite. Plenty of room. May not be the fanciest looking hotel in OC but it is a great place to stay. So close to all the attractions. The staff is amazing.... More

We all know that rooms in Ocean City are expensive and can really be hard to come by in the heat of the summer. When looking for an affordable room for a girls weekend, we were drawn to the pictures on the website of the private beach, and of course- the price was right. Now, the website does warn you... More
