If you're looking for glammer, this might not be the place for you. But if you are a fisherman looking for a room just to sleep in, it's perfect. Our room was small with two double beds,small bathroom a fridge and t.v. When you walked out of the room, you are looking right at the inlet. Walk out and you're ready to fish. There are larger rooms available. You have free access to the fishing pier. They have anything you need. Rental rods,bait {frozen and live}, tackle and free advice on what to use and what's biting. We spent all of our time on the pier. We caught flounder,puppy drum,blue fish,taug. It wasn't the right time for stripers but they do catch them from the pier. When we arrived they gave us a 20% off coupon for Harrissons raw bar and restaurant, which you can walk too. The boardwalk is within walking distance. They have coffee in the office in the morning. Everybody at the Motel that I spoke with were very polite,pleasant and helpful. I'm already making plans to return. I just have to figure out what I want to fish for.They also have a very nice pool and free wifi. The sunsets are amazing,

My family and I have been staying at the Oceanic for about 10 years now. We come twice a year for the Car Shows in May and October. The location is superb! You cant beat it. We spend the weekend in the parking lot watching cars. TheBoardwalk is within walking distance so there is no reason to drive anywhere! There is a microwave and a fridge in the room and if we want to eat out.. the Boardwalk is right there. "We" encompasses about 6 different families, and probably 30 people, and my family are the relative new comers.
I agree with with Curt W. Joyce, Angie and the rest of the office staff treat us like family, and Alice is the best!!
The room has two double beds in the bedroom and a pull out couch in the "family room", which is perfect for my self, husband and son. This year they have added free wifi!
We will continue to come back as long as they let us!

We stayed here one night, because our usual hotel decided to only be open for the weekend this year during the car cruise. We had a small room with a queen bed that over looked Assateague island, it was on the second floor. The room was small, but clean. The only problem i had was that it was such a tight squeeze to fit between the sink and wall to get into the shower, i mean this bathroom is super tiny. We have a four year old and we just let him skip a shower, because it was too tight for us to be in there with him to help him. Oh well, when your at the beach who cares. I would just opt for a bigger room next time. Location and activities make up for the tiny bathroom at this hotel.

This was the 2nd time we stayed at the Oceanic. I was hoping that they would have improved it since the 1st time we stayed....boy was I wrong! We paid extra for a "queen" room with a "queen" bed. What a waste of money! There is no way that bed was a queen. We have a queen-sized bed at home and know the difference between queen and double/full. It was also a tiny room. If they call this a queen, then I'd be very curious to see what the "regular" rooms were like. There were also ants and other bugs in our room, it was obvious that the sink had not been cleaned and there was no way that the shower could be cleaned since the shower curtain hung at least 12" onto the floor of the shower stall. The walls were dirty as well and the bed sunk down in the middle. Two of the three nights that we stayed, there were issues with noise. We will definitely NOT stay at this filthy place again unless they do some major renovations! Just not worth the price.

Room Tip: Choosing a good room? Well then do NOT stay at this motel! Maybe then you'll be fortunate enou...

We've been staying here for about 23 yrs. Obviously we love the place. You can walk to just about anything you want to see or do and can go fishing right out your door. We always go for Sunfest and stay the following week. Crowds are gone and most everything is still open on the boards. Sure it's an older motel but rooms are clean and nice. The staff is excellent, Joyce, Tamara , Angie, all the office staff, just like family. Housekeeper Alice is a sweetheart. They all strive to make your stay enjoyable.
We see lots of the same people year after year who stay here. That says alot about this motel. As long as the Oceanic remains here we will continue making great memories!
Sunrises and sunsets are awsome!! Nice pool,bayside cove, palm trees, hammocks.
Can't wait to return! Thanks Oceanic family for GREAT TIMES!

Room Tip: Communicating rooms are great for a week long stay. You have more room to "stretch out".

This is the best to stay, we have been staying here for Sunfest for the past 12 years that says it all. It is not the Ritz , but then we are not Ritz type of people. If you want the personal touch, being able to grill out if you want ,fish or just hang out This is the place for you. In all the years we have been staying here if there is ever an issue then Joyce and her staff would take care if it right away. We will continue to stay at the Oceanic with Joyce and her staff as long as the gang makes our yearly trip to Sunfest. Thanks again Joyce and staff for another year of great memeories. PA will be back!!!!!!

Room Tip: love bayside rooms
