If you're staying in the OceanCity area to spend 90% of your time 'exploring', I recommend this place. True, this is my first over-night stay in the area, but for those of us who want the biggest variety of scenery and things to do into 24hours, I think this location must be in the top 5 locations to 'drop anchor' . Do yourself a favor and check a 'map site' to check out the Oceanic's location from an aerial view. That said, if you need a place for an extended stay that 'taunts' indoor/outdoor pool, computer room, built-in convenience shop, brass-plated luggage carts, continental breakfast, etc....pick somewhere else (there's 100's). The Oceanic is a motel 'on the ocean'. What I liked: 2 min. stroll to the Boardwalk and the ocean; every kind of watercraft passing right past your doorstep; 2 blocks to partake of any kind of water excursion you could think of. As far as my ratings: Service...wasn't looking for a lot, everyone was helpful and pleasant. Value...good, again because of the LOCATION, not the amenities. Sleep quality...clean dbl bed. Cleanliness...very clean. Location...the best. Rooms...I was a little worried what I would find after reading other reviews, but it was what I expected...some fixtures were old'ish, window-sills needed painting, air conditioner noisy on start-up; but everything was clean, including sheets, shower, dresser, refrig, carpet...and everything worked properly....which is why I rated the room 'very good'. No, there is no microwave...rooms are small, no room, it's at the 'office', which is very nice and has lots of fresh,hot coffee. Fitness Room...you've got the boardwalk, beach, water-sports. Restaurant...Oceanic offers discounts at some that are 200 feet away. Other....parking lot and grounds are maintained and in great shape; pool is outside,small, but in great shape (and right next to the inlet with view of Atlantic and harbor). Overall, needs work, but maintained well, hammocks looked new (try them out). So OK, need a big place for a week with ironing board, hair dryer, room service, lots of quiet room-time...you made the wrong choice friend.......BUT if you're looking for clean place to crash with atmosphere galore within walking distance (did I mention you can see the Assateague wild ponies across the inlet, with binoculars, if you're lucky), don't hesitate to book a room at the Oceanic.
