From the moment Sharon greeted us at the desk until check out, we were thrilled with our experience at the Oceaneer ! This is everything we want in a beach trip! A "quaint, Mom & Pop" motel with a beautiful view of the ocean. Our room was clean and comfortable and peaceful. Only minutes to Fort Fisher and the Aquarium.... More

My grandparents have been vacationing here every year for nearly 15 years. two generations of grand kids and great grand kids have spent their fourth of July vacation here. Every friendly staff, great location, wonderful rooms, ocean front and very affordable. We have stayed in every room type they have. Will continue to visit every year.

There's nothing bad to say! Every time we stay we're treated like family. The rooms are clean & comfortable with a coffee maker, fridge & microwave in them...plus a keurig in the office :-) ; the location is top notch & the beach is only steps away! Lots of great restaurants close by too. The owner, her family & staff... More

The lady at the desk was very nice at check in. The hotel and rooms were pretty good. The beds were a little too firm for my liking but slept ok. The only complaint I would have is the bathroom door, it wouldn't shut all the way. We were on the 3rd floor and had a great ocean view. This... More

We have stayed here sever times over the years. It's nothing extra fancy here but always clean and it's oceanfront. The staff is awesome. It was my GF birthday weekend and the lady and the desk made a special gesture by bringing her a ballon and tying it to our porch chair!! It's that kind of attention and family atmosphere... More

First time staying here. Found it to be very clean! Good view of the ocean from the second floor. Great access to the beach! Would definitely stay here again! My only complaint would be the wi-fi kept going in and out.

Happened upon this facility as I was traveling through North Carolina. It does not get any better than this. The beach is literally steps away as is the pool. Room was clean and comfortable. Sharon, counter staff, was friendly, professional and very informative as to where to go to eat and things to do in the area. Highly recommend whether... More

Most incredible staff, we've been coming here for 3 yrs. Wouldn't stay anywhere else in NC. Love the fact it's on the beach, and the pool is always clean. The office staff is the most helpful and acomidating. We love them all.

Stayed here for a week in June of 2013 and loved it. Yes its dated, but you are at the beach, how much time do you spend in your room? It was great place to sleep, shower and drink coffee before heading out for the day. Staff was very helpful and cordial. When we had an issue it was handled... More
