We are just leaving from a 4 day stay. We parked the car and never had to get back in it, close enough to walk to the beach with all chairs and coolers in hand. The fishing pier was a ton of fun with my kids catching tons of fish and crab. And the pool was perfect to cool off... More

Great location and staff, pool is nice, but the motel needs TLC. Room was tiny and the bathroom was even smaller. The carpets are gross. The wifi is horrible. Free parking is limited. The sunset view on the bay is absolutely amazing. It's unfortunate the condition of the motel takes away from the pros. I will not return.

Myself, son and boyfriend recently stayed here. We got an inlet suite...room 12. The ad was misleading because we are not right on the inlet...there is a whole parking lot between us and the inlet, so when there are cars parked you really can't see it well. The room was grungy and out dated. Although we did not have any... More

We actually stayed here 2 years in a row. Trying to get back again this year (2016). Second time around we sprung for a bay view room and what a view we had!! Plenty of room for me and my wife. Bought food and drinks to keep in the fridge and cook in the microwave. The front desk staff was... More

Room was very clean and the staff very nice. Room was extremely small, wouldn't suggest for anyone with small child. Nice view of bay and pool was clean and very inviting in appearance. Only stayed one night so it was perfect for us. Definitely would suggest this place for anyone who isn't spending much time in the room.

We stayed 2 nights, loved the idea of backing up to door and unloading luggage and coolers. Frig and microwave worked, room clean, Linens clean, donuts in the office every morning with coffee. TV remote did not work but upon calling a man came and fixed it the next morning. Watched the Penquins playoff game before they got to the... More

First off, don't go off the pictures they show. Most of those are outdated or not accurate. The front desk wasn't very professional. The kid was friendly, but not overly knowledgeable or quick. The room itself was ridiculously small. You can fit about three people in it at one time. Seriously, it's that small. It's old, outdated, the ceilings and... More

I've stayed here multiple times. It is what it is. Small clean rooms walking distance from all the bars and boardwalk for an inexpensive price. They are always friendly and in fact this time Expedia screwed up our reservation and they went out of there way to make it right and find us a room. If you want a fancy... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Many a fish story has begun at the Oceanic Motel. Located at the southernmost end of Ocean City, we overlook the Inlet and Assateague Island with their famous ponies. All rooms are air-conditioned and come with refrigerators. Guests are welcome to take a dip in our outdoor pool, fish off of our pier or relax on our private bayside beach.
