While the hotel itself is older and looks it for the most part, we still had a positive experience. The hotel is right on the beach just like the more expensive places, but half the cost. The rooms were clean and the staff very friendly.

Wow, love the new look! My favorite place to be on vacation year after year. You guys are always updating and I love it. New mattresses, more seating around the pool. Great job! Wonderful staff as always, from office to housekeepers.

This was an pretty decent ocean front motel but needs some updates. I'm not that picky, but there are a few things here that need improving that wouldn't cost a whole lot. The room rate of $135.00 is fair for this hotel. First off, the location of this hotel can't be beat! Get a room on the second or third... More

The reason we ended up at this motel is because I did not carefully read the reviews and also when I was making our reservation I thought it was $145/night, but that ended up being the total amount for two nights (plus tax). I am sorry but there was nothing good about this motel, except that you could access the... More

So, this is no 4star hotel by any means but if you are on a budget and looking for a clean affordable hotel, this is definitely the place. The room was spacious with small fridge and microwave. The room is somewhat dated but for me it's fine. The staff are friendly and easygoing. The access to the beach is amazing... More

So let me first say I'm coming back and I'd stay here again. This is because I'm a realist. I also have real expectations. I grew up in the beach. It is not fancy. The people aren't fancy. That said I'm making this for those that have delusions of beach life because you come here once a year. Positives: It's... More

We wanted affordable and on the beach and we got just that. The pool was nice, the beach was close by and easy to get to. That said, I agree with a number of the complaints. There were people drinking and smoking in the pool, drunk guests being loud, it is really far from the main area of town so... More

I looked at some other reviews on another site after booking this room and was nervous about the room but it had a beautiful beach view from the window, very short walk to the ocean, nice clean room including fridge and microwave. Bathroom was also very clean. Management and maintenance were very kind and helpful as well.

When I'm headed to the beach, I always try to keep an eye out for bargains (especially when it comes to lodging). As the granddaughter of a former resident of Carolina Beach, I feel like I know this place like the back of my hand and nowhere conjures up nostalgia quite like the Oceaneer. The woman at the front desk... More

If you want a swanky, expensive, tasteless, cold place to go this is not the place. It's old, comfortable but clean, friendly, 50 ish. You're not a number. You're a guest. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Everything works well. You get personalized service. The view of the ocean is great. Rooms don't face the ocean, they face the coastline.... More
