we spent 2 nights here... close enough to walk everywhere, the beach, the pier and several restaurants. The people are wicked friendly and the grinders at the store are really good. The room was comfy, and very clean, but if you are a light sleeper, there are railroad tracks right behind the property and when the freight trains go through,...

Stayed at Moby Dick on 4th of July weekend for the first time and were pretty pleased with the overall experience! It's a neat little motel located on the main road that's a 60 second walk to the beach and fairly close to all the other attractions OOB has to offer (Carni, pier, nightlife etc...) We had two rooms attached...

The room is plain but most importantly very clean. I enjoy the closeness to the beach. The owners are wonderful and treat each guest as such! The sandwiches are great. Nice to order breakfast and lunch right there! I stay there because I love it there!

We thought we would go to the money dick's for lunch. There is a small store and restaurant in the hotel. I got a steak and cheese sub, and hubby got a pizza. Both tasted great! Later we went to get a few snacks like chips and pop and the man said we can't buy anything here unless you spend...

Stopped by for a take out lunch in the variety store. My husband and I both got burgers and fries. Both were very good and not greasy. Appreciated how friendly and accommodating the staff was- would definitely stop by again! Looks like they had a good selection of items you would want at the beach.

I am writing this review on the Moby Dick store, not the hotel (I've never stayed here). However, given the treatment I have received in the store, I would absolutely stay with these wonderful people in an instant. Each time we came to the store we were greeted by the owner or a member of his family. The owner is...

Awesome family owned place! Not on the beach, but just fine!!! Very clean & nice staff! Great deli/pizza place too & huge breakfast sandwiches!!!! Just an FYI- bring your own hair dryer & pillows from home. Pillows in the room could be former.

We visited OOB and stopped in the variety store to get some water and decided to get a grinder for dinner. Well, let me tell you it was one of the "BEST" we had in a long time. We did not stay at the hotel but grinders are Slammin and the gentlemen that made was very very nice!!

Stayed here summer 2012 for 4 nights. Hotel room looked clean at first glance. Upon getting settled in the room, we noticed that all around the window was mold. The air conditioner didn't work as good as it should have. Go in store to check in, owners are very nice and helpful. Hotel has wifi, depending on the room you...
