The motel is located at the inlet, so you can't ask for a better view. The hospitality was divine. If you fish, you are at ground Zero. Room was ok. Family friendly, 4 kids here. All the outside amenities were awesome. But the room was just a room. So, If you plan to stay the day away in your room,... More

My room was freshly painted, had a newer carpet, and the whole place had a well-cared-for atmosphere. The total experience was a pleasant surprise, especially at... More

I stayed here Memorial day weekend 2014. First the location is perfect, literally they are at the tip of the boardwalk and after I parked the car I did not need it again until the day that I left. They have deals with a couple places to save you some money, there are picnic tables and hammocks out back so... More

The most fantastic views and experiences in all of ocean city. This place is a treasure. Nothing like it anywhere. Not fancy. CLEAN. Friendly. Comfortable. Bring your binoculars. You will always see something new.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Many a fish story has begun at the Oceanic Motel. Located at the southernmost end of Ocean City, we overlook the Inlet and Assateague Island with their famous ponies. All rooms are air-conditioned and come with refrigerators. Guests are welcome to take a dip in our outdoor pool, fish off of our pier or relax on our private bayside beach. If the ocean is what you crave, the beach is only a short walk away. ... more   less
