We have stayed there a couple times and will again this year. Restuarants the beach and shops in walking distance. Love that they have a beach area right outside your door. You can fish and grill all without having to go anywhere. We are taking our little 4 year old there this year so he can fish and watch the dolphins. Staff was all very friendly.

Room Tip: We like the rooms facing the water and the fact that there is a beach area right outside your door!

We have stayed at the Oceanic every year for 15 years. Some rooms are small , but I don't go to the beach to stay in the room. Joyce and her staff are GREAT !!! they take care of any concerns and make your stay enjoyable. Fishing , beach , restaurants,and jet ski, etc within EASY walking . The sunsets breathtaking. since we go at the sametime each year ...many return vacationers..it's home sweet home. We have had my Dad , our grandkids and our kids everyone has had a good time. It's fun for all

Room Tip: The communicating rooms are good for a group ( 4-6 maybe 8), the bay rooms are good for couples

We stay at the Oceanic twice a year, once in May and end of September. We love it there and wouldn't want to stay anywhere else. The location is great, everything is in walking distance, the boardwalk, restaurants, fishing,etc. The staff is great! They make you feel at home. The rooms are comfortable and reasonable with great views of the sunset from the Bay and Inlet rooms that we always try to book.

We booked this motel in advance based on its location, amenities and price. When we arrived we were so upset. The website was so misleading. The good reviews are obviously exaggerated. The place was awful. We stayed only because we could not get out of our reservation but we were so afraid to touch anything in the room. We had to ask for clean sheets immediately, after checking them we saw they were stained and had hairs on them. The staff was rude. Obviously everyone else staying there felt the same way because nobody stayed in their rooms. The patio was filled with people all day and night which made sleeping at night impossible. It smelled musty with a blanket of lysol which made it hard to breathe. I would never recommend this motel to anyone. We had fun in Ocean City, MD and got some amusement laughing at how stupid we were to stay in such a bad motel. It is a shame that the owners have such a great location and run such an awful establishment. One thing we found too late was youtube videos. Type in oceanic hotel mattress video.

This hotel is amazing for a few reasons... one is the price! Wow you can stay here for a week what it costs to stay some of the other places for a weekend. We find ourselves coming back to this hotel often mainly because of the low cost but also because of the location. Every side of the Oceanic has a beautiful view of the bay. The best part is a short walk along the bay and your on the boardwalk without ever crossing a street. They have such a peaceful little spot away from the boardwalk but close enough that you won't miss any of the action! The rooms are small but that's the only complaint I'd have, the staff are some of the nicest people in Ocean City and everything is clean. The parking is easy and the pool is fantastic. We've stayed here many times and we'll be back again and again.
