Old construction , updates and repairs never made. Cleaning had been done but one cannot see the difference before and after. Bath tub rusted through, linoleum is old and curved on sides, short many inches to the edges. Old small fridges which had bad odor. Bed linens and towels are old, blankets with holes. Maids are using old vacuum cleaners,...

Pros: Great price. Our door opened to the bay with a beautiful beach area. Great location for walking to the boardwalk. Free paper, coffee, oranges and bananas. Always found a parking spot. Cons: Room was filthy. Blinds were broken, dusty and stuck half open. Bed was so old you rolled toward the center. Bathroom was so small you had to...

We choose the oceanic hotel over the internet, and were not disappointed. It is a beautiful place to be, surrounded by, the ocean and bay. The boards and beach are with in walking distance, less than a block. Very friendly atmosphere, with helpful staff. It was an all around great experience. Can't wait to go back.

I have stayed in my share of shore motels, but this one is by far the worst. I can't imagine that is even up to code: no GFCI outlets in bathroom, chipping paint, floor tiles coming up from shower, drop ceiling tiles coming down in bathroom, rotten door frame that made lock jam, the list goes on and on.

We stayed here July 5 through July 8. I was a little nervous about how the hotel was going to be even after reading some of the reviews, but I was not disappointed. Overall you get what you pay for - this isn't a high end hotel, but you're not paying a high end price. The room is dated, older...

My parents have been staying here for years. (About 5-7 yrs.) They love it!! My dad likes to fish and this place is located right by the inlet. Also, you can get free passes to fish on the pier located just behind the motel. Just ask the office at the motel for them and they will provide you with them....

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.
