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

The beach front motel was very convient and the pool was nice, but there were some major problems. My friends and I called ahead to check on the kitchen available for the suit we were in and was told "Everything was provided". But, the pans/silverware etc. were dirty and even after being washed they still had black rubbing off on... More

The stay we had here was amazing and there isn't enough words to say how great this place and beach is!! At first I didn't really think this motel would be this great, but in the end I didn't want to go home! I wish to come back here this year. Also I suggest to eat at Old Salties.

We have stayed at this hotel on 3 or 4 occasions for multiple days at a time. The staff is wonderful. The service is excellent. The rooms are clean and everything works, if a bit dated. This is an older property and that is apparent. But, this hotel offers great value and you get what you pay for. The pool... More

Tried this motel and had a great time. Right on the beach. The staff was so nice and the rooms were nice. Pool was great. Walked out of my room and down their walkway and stepped right onto the beach. The price was the best I found on the oceanfront. I will definitely return.
