I looked at some other reviews on another site after booking this room and was nervous about the room but it had a beautiful beach view from the window, very short walk to the ocean, nice clean room including fridge and microwave. Bathroom was also very clean. Management and maintenance were very kind and helpful as well.

When I'm headed to the beach, I always try to keep an eye out for bargains (especially when it comes to lodging). As the granddaughter of a former resident of Carolina Beach, I feel like I know this place like the back of my hand and nowhere conjures up nostalgia quite like the Oceaneer. The woman at the front desk... More

If you want a swanky, expensive, tasteless, cold place to go this is not the place. It's old, comfortable but clean, friendly, 50 ish. You're not a number. You're a guest. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Everything works well. You get personalized service. The view of the ocean is great. Rooms don't face the ocean, they face the coastline.... More

This was our go to place for many years (15+) in Carolina Beach. Although it is one of the older hotels in the area, they ALWAYS provided us with great customer service and clean accommodations. However, on our last several visits, it was obvious that the clientele had changed, and not a place we wanted to frequent any longer. Was... More

Oceaneer rooms are just steps away from the sea. Views of beautiful dunes and sea oats and flowers. Room was clean and comfortable with a refrigerator, microwave and coffee maker. There was a family atmosphere. Staff was warm and helpful with restaurant suggestions. Also free WiFi for downloading your beautiful beach photos! Easy access to both Carolina Beach and Kure...

I stayed there once, it was dark & dingy, I did have a ocean view, but lots of people walked backed and forth all night, taking pics & being loud the entire time. Very little furniture. The mattress was not comfy, rather thin & lumpy. The pillows weren't soft and comfy either, they were rather thin. Bathroom was old and... More

I had a hard time deciding how to review this hotel. my husband said it was a dump. I thought it was a good price for a reasonably clean room on the beach. we had a a room on the end close to the beach. Great view over the hall deck - and many other guests thought so as well.... More

So excited to be back at the Oceaneer. My home away from home! And this time they have added new blow dryers and new curved shower rods to the rooms. This place is always updating and cannot wait to see what they do next. I was extremely happy with the way it was, keeping it a mom and pop family... More
