“Ocean City's best kept secret!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2011

This was my first time at the Oceanic and it will not be my last. I had a great time and was so relaxed it was hard to leave. The staff is great...very friendly and pleasant and always available if you need help with anything. Joyce, the owner/manager was wonderful so down to earth and friendly. The atmoshere is tranquille and relaxing and the sunsets are amazing. The hotel is also situated in the perfect location...steps away from the boardwalk which has so much to do from shopping to rides or sun bathing or just to get a bite to eat. Not to mention the Jetskiing also just steps away. No need to drive anywhere. There are also grills and tables throughout the property so you can buy food, grill it up and watch the sun set while enjoying the great company of friends and family. I have to say, I've stayed at hotels that were much fancier but not as relaxing. You really feel like you are home here and the staff really does their best to make you feel that way.

Thank you Joyce and the rest of the staff at Oceanic. As Arnold would say, I'll be back, lol :-)

This motel stands out from the rest. Its on the end of the boardwalk which makes it perfect for starting your stroll to see the sights. The owner Joyce is great and personally involves herself with all her guests. She treats you like someone other than a guest. Now for those that ride motorcycle the plus sides are of course Joyce is a biker herself and welcomes us with open arms and knows we are not all trouble makers as some hotels make us out to be. The rates a good and the rooms are clean. The service can be trusted when you leave jewelry and money laying around. Not sure what else to say but see you next year Oceanic Motel.

The hotel is great close to everything. The staff are really helpful. The owner is so lovely she's always making sure all the guest are having a good time. The view from the pier is amazing and close to all the shops on the boardwalk.

My husband and I took a getaway to Ocean City, Md. We've both been there a couple of times during the on season, so this was our first time experiencing the off season. It was really relaxing, did a few activities and just relaxed. We wanted a nice place to stay near the boardwalk, but didn't want to pay top dollar price. We found our place when we booked a room at this motel. The staff was friendly and accommodating. The rooms were cozy and comfortable. It was a small room, with pretty much your standard bedroom and bathroom. We were out during the day so it was a nice place to come back to in the evening. It was relaxing hearing the waves and got a great view of the bay. We would for sure come back again! :)

And again and again. We have stayed here numbers of times. Always greated warmly by Joyce, Angie and staff. The location is great! The bordwalk and beach are within walking distance and if you enjoy fishing this is the place to stay! The fishing pier is free when you stay at the Oceanic and that also is in walking distance. We vacationed here with friends and family and even made friends that also frequent the Oceanic. Great location and great staff, what more can we say? Looking forward to our next visit!

We live in Northeast PA and after the long snowy cold winter, we look forward to coming to the Oceanic every year for some sun and fun. We have been reserving rooms for more than 5 years, and stay twice a year. We love this place it's affordable, and has everything we need. We just need a room to sleep and shower. The rooms are small, but are always clean and comfortable. There is so much to do by the Oceanic, you don't want to just stay in your room. The views are awesome, and if you like to fish this is the spot. The Oceanic fishing pier is free, just go to the office to get passes. The boardwalk is also just a short walk away .The Staff is great. Joyce makes us feel like we're family. We have recommended the Oceanic to many of our friends,and they have been happy with their stays also. With the gas prices today, this place is great because it's walking distance to many of the area attractions.
