I go here every year,at least once..I love the ambiance! Great music,food,swim up bar,jacuzzi,etc :) perfect place to relax and catch a tan with friends. Especially love the pool hours!!! The only turn off (and it's a huge one) is the woman behind the tiki bar..she's usually the main bar maid,which I think takes away from the experience. Every experience... More

My wife and I stayed at the Oceanic from 8/18 to 8/22. We booked through Priceline.com for the "special" rate of $160 per night. When I returned home, I looked at the brochure from the hotel, and the room we stayed in was $105 per night. Went to the Oceanic website, and their pricing was $105/night for the class "B"... More

As for the pool, we can assure you that we would never permit that behavior, but your concerns are understood. We will absolutely continue our... More

On our 3rd night it rained and our ceiling began leaking on one of the children!! The problem was reported and we were told to give them a little bit and they would... More

Longtime visitor to the Oceanic but this past visit I had a bad experience. The motel advertised a price of $95 a night for selected weeks, however when I called back in July to book the room, was told because of concert events rates are subject to change and for the week of August 24-29th, the price increased to $125...

Just got back from the Oceanic Hotel, and me and my fiance had a WONDERFUL time. No idea what the negative reviews are about. You can't go to the shore expecting a 5 star resort; It's a beach town!
