We have been staying at Ocean Crest for the last ten years. Twice during the summer we stay for a week in the two story town house. The town house sleeps eight with two full baths and upper and lower ocean front decks. Ocean Crest is not The Mariot so if that's what you're looking for you need to go... More

Stayed here in July for 3 nights for a weekend wedding. The location is great. We chose this location due to the excellent reviews. Unfortunately, we were VERY disappointed. We booked a non-ocean front room, which we later learned meant a lot of other down-grades as well. We were placed in the green roofed building, which is separate from the... More

This was a great place: clean, comfortable rooms, friendly, helpful staff and the view of the beach is simply wonderful! We were able to spend quality time with our 7-year-old grandson (he loves to fish) and family to make memories...It's so convenient to local, good places to eat, fish and shop. We were there a week in November and had... More

My sister and I stayed in early December. Our room was clean and fresh, beds were very comfortable, and the view of the beach was great. The staff was so friendly and accommodating. Please know that this is not a fancy resort, if that's what you want. It is truly a bargain, we were expecting to pay more. Returning for... More

We had a church group made up of couples that stayed in the Ocean Crest Motel. The guys fished and the ladies shopped and enjoyed going out for lunch, walked the beach and rode bicycles. Several of the guys also played golf - Oak Island Beach is a favorite for families and this is the 14th year for our church... More

we had a great stay. everyone was so friendly. they treated us like family. in the evening, I would go to the lobby to use my computer , but ended up chit-chatting with sherry, the sweet girl at the desk, most of the night. the price for the stay is great, if you stay for 7 days, you only pay...

Hotel is not fancy but Sherry and (yikes... forgot name of owner) .... were very accommodating. They bent over backwards to make my stay great. I will come back here if I am ever able to get back to the Atlantic Ocean again!

The Ocean Crest is not fancy. In fact, it is just about as bare bones as you can get in 2013. It is however, in a great location next to the pier, convenient to the new bridge bringing traffic in from Hwy 211 without going into Southport, has an incredible view of the beautiful beach of Oak Island, and is...

I hadn't stayed here since 1997 when I booked our stay (typically the whole family rents a house, but we did not this year), and I had some reservations due to that stay and some of the more marginal reviews here. I'm happy to report that they're generally wrong. First of all, manage your expectations; this is not an ocean... More

I love this motel. We stayed in a private balcony room facing the beach. We were on the top floor so there wasn't a roof over our balcony, which is great since it lets in the sunlight and you don't feel closed in. The room was nicely decorated. Let's face it folks, this hotel isn't a "resort" hotel! However, just... More
