Worked fine for me,her and the dog.This is an older stay facility but the door locked,ac worked ,plumbing functioned along with the TV. We found staff helpful and room clean enough for royality. Tis.tis. LOL. The ocean and seafood are the attraction for us. The weather was great. Other quests here at Oceanhouse were so very friendly too. Yes we're... More

My wife and I just checked out today, August 21, 2012, after a 2-nights stay. Booked a newly renovated oceanfront room with king-size bed (got room 102) in advance over the internet at what I consider a pretty hevty price. The receptionist was very charming and wonderful upon our arrival. The room, however, was an absolute shocker, to say the... More

We were here once before, and enjoyed it, so we decided to stay there again on our way to Virginia. I guess it was prime time for al the hotels , everything was at it's highest price.. We didn't get a view of the ocean, or even facing the ocean, but it was a nice clean , but a little... More

Let's face it, it's a [-]. It's real old; staff is less so and passably nice only (contrary to other reviews). Will work in a pinch if you are not any kind of germaphobe and you are (a) booking last minute or (b) too cheap to pay $50 more for Ramada 2 blocks down. Add dogs and it's a lock.... More

I just returned from this property today. For the price it was much better than I had thought it would be. The staff were very friendly and helpful. I had 2 rooms (side by side) and they were both clean and comfortable. I love the easy beach access and location of the motel in general. I would recommend The Ocean... More

I paid for an "ocean front" room and got a sand dune and glass that was disgustingly dirty. The chairs were falling apart. The bed linen smelled mildewed. A few guys in the room a few door down had a huge scorpion/bug in their bed! The planks on the deck leading into the rooms are rotting from the air conditioners... More

My husband and I came for our yearly anniversary getaway. This is the first time we stayed at ocean house. Service was great. The rooms were dated but many of the accommodations are unless you stay in a new rental home. We loved that the patio had a path directly to the beach. They had grills which we thought was... More

Check in was pleasant, people were friendly. We were early and our room wasn't ready, so they switched our room; which was fine because it was a bigger room. Excited to see the rooms, we went up the stairs and that's when I could see this motel is not maintained and very dated. Nails and screws sticking up out of... More

Very disappointed after seeing the internet information and picture and then finding out what our room was really like. Would never go back again to this motel. Only redeeming qualities were the price and proximity to the beach. Bring your own alarm clock, kleenex, and hair dryer as they are not provided for you. Glad we were only there 1... More

If you your bottom line is price then this is the place to stay. The bed was not comfortable, the toilet wasn't bolted down properly, everything was pretty much falling apart. For what we paid this is about what is to be expected... just a place to sleep and shower. For me the thing that made me most uncomfortable was... More
