Ocean Crest was absolutely delightful, but what made the trip was the front desk clerk Jennifer. She was beyond sweet and very helpful, she is a fine young lady. However not all was as sweet and professional as she. The rooms are very affordable and worth every penny, waking up to the ocean was simply enchanting Plus the parking lot... More

Stayed in Oak Island to recover from minor surgery that was done in Southport, The area was wonderful, but staying at the Ocean Crest Motel was the best decision that we made for the trip! The friendly staff and owners (who was so helpful to meet any needs that we had), the excellent private balcony room and the direct access... More

We stayed here for a 4 day weekend in December. The staff was friendly, the place was clean, and parking was easy. Breathtaking ocean front views next to the pier. Couldn't have been more than a hundred feet from the ocean. Well worth the stay.

My husband and I took a long overdue trip to Oak Island so we spent some time at Ocean Crest Motel. Although the building itself maybe easily overlooked, don't! We enjoyed our stay here not only for the friendly folks in the office, but mainly for the private balcony facing the beach. We spent considerable time on the balcony to... More

We liked this motel for its great location. It's worth the money. As other reviewers have written - nothing fancy here but, good size room with almost everything that you need available in the room and helpful and pleasant staff! Our coffee machine was not working and the staff replaced it with a new one. There is no microwave in... More

We had an oceanfront room with balcony. For the $110 per night we paid, it was a really good value. It came with a small refrigerator and other items you would expect to find. It. Is an older hotel that has been well maintained. The folks at the desk were ever so friendly. We came for a wedding and it... More

Don't get me wrong, this is a good, average older motel for the money. But nothing special. We went on Labor day when the prices dropped and stayed 3 nights along with my Mother and Father-In-Law, who were in the room next door. First, when they say check in time is 3 PM, they mean 3 PM, not any sooner,... More
