stayed at the oceanic now for a number of years. if you're idea of vacation is to sit in your room, drink your mamossa, and drown yourself in social media, do yourself a favor stay away. if you work hard every day for a living, and want to get away to a clean but small place to SLEEP & SHOWER,...

The hotel is facing the bay and Assateaque Inlet. 24 hour fishing pier. Walking one block to beach. Trimpers is across the street. Hotel is old but our favorite spot for annual vacations. You can relax in the hammocks and watch the fishing boats or play in the bay. The pool is small and unheated but that feels great on... More

First of all the smell there is horrible. You want into your room and stumble into the bed right away. The shower is like a very small box that doesn't even allow the room for movement. The manager there thinks that she is always right and will not help you in any way. She even raises her voice at the... More

I wish I could give zero stars... Location is the only plus of this crappy motel. Here is the cons: 1. It stinks around 2. Manager is rude, she has no idea about customer service 3. Shower is not just small but tiny, you can't wash your hair properly. 4. Sink is the size of a book, literally. 5. Bathroom... More

Ok, where do I begin? Upon opening our door to room #26, we were inundated with approx 15 flies. Thankfully they supply you with a fly swatter. We took off our shoes and stuck to the sticky, carpeted floor. I actually got down on the floor and baby-wiped the entire carpet it was so gross. I then began to wipe... More

The location is perfect. Could not ask for a better location close to the boardwalk but far enough away from the madness. It was very nice to wake up every morning and look out the window and see the inlet and watch the boats and fisherman. However, The room was small which is fine but it was dusty and had... More

My wife and I love going to the Oceanic in OC every year. With that being said I think they could throw a little money at the facility and at least fix up the bathrooms a bit. We'll be back next year either way though because it's the coolest place to stay in all of Ocean City. We love it.

Don't let the photos fool you the rooms are outdated, dirty and small. If we didn't already pay for the room we would of left. Thank goodness we brought our own towels and soap and sheets. The bed skirt was filthy I wore my slippers even in the very tiny shower. Don't stay here they show pictures only of the... More

***MOLD****FILTH***BUGS**** Ugh. So my family and I were visiting OC. We decided to stay an extra day. Our current hotel (The Francis Scott Key Resort which was very nice) was booked. So I quickly booked us another spot. I chose the Oceanic because I thought I got a good price and the location is perfect. Right on the inlet (beautiful... More

Here's The Good And The Bad! My son and I just got back from our vacation, where we stood at the Oceanic Motel! Let's start off with some of the negatives! First, the place is very dated. They need to take time to paint the walls and ceilings. The rooms are very small. If you are a bigger person you... More
