“Great Location”
Reviewed August 9, 2010

Ok so the location was great close to the beach, bay and boardwalk, but with that location came noise our room was right in front of a parking lot where cars would shine their lights all night and there were spotlights right outside our window. I found an easy fix take some thumbtacks and tack your beach towels over the windows. After I did this I slept soundly! The beds were average quality and the sheets did come off the bed but overall for the price the room was no all that bad luckly we had a larger room with a sitting area with two couches and two double beds so we tended to have neighbors with kids who didn't drink at the bar all night! Overall it was good experience and although the room is older and outdated the location was excellent!

The only reason i gave it one star is because you cant give it zero stars. The motel room was totally dirty. This hotel seriously needs to be shut down bulldozed and turned into a parking lot or something. There were stains everywhere!!!! EVERYWHERE!!!. The sofa bed had a brown stain the size of a pizza on it. NO JOKE http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xarfCFqsC_U Check it out. The other mattress had what was a yellow hardened substance on the mattress. FLIES were also everywhere. It came with a complementary fly swatter. Which came in handy. The bathroom had a gigantic yellow stain covering most of the floor. The TV was horrible not all of the channels worked and it was always fuzzy. The hotel staff was very rude and wouldnt help you at all. During our stay someone got robbed and we were in the office when they were trying to alert the staff. The staff member refused to get off the phone and help the customer. The only one who would say hi to you was the maintenance man who was nice. There is no excuse for anyone to stay at this hotel. Pay attention to the reviews because they are legitimate. Do not spend hard earned money on a ruined vacation at the oceanic motel. AND NO WIFI . . . DONT STAY HERE. WALLS ARNT THICK EITHER

I have been going to OC yearly for many years. The last 4 years we have stayed here. I find that the motel staff are very friendly and helpful, The pool is very nice and clean. Some of the rooms are a little small, but never have I stayed here, that the rooms are dirty. It could use a little up dating, paint job and new carpet. The location is great, walking distance to everythindg. Free passes to the pier for fishing. If you want the Hilton , then you should pay for the Hilton. If you are looking for a nice little place to stay at the beach....This is the place

We traveled to Ocean City over memorial day weekend, we were 3 adults 2 children. We stayed in room 15 our room was small but we fit. The first problem was the living room tv would not stay on & in the middle of the night it would turn on on its own. Housekeeping did a good job cleaning our room except that the fitted sheets on the beds would not stay on the elastic was stretched we assumed that once she changed our sheets the problem would be resolved but it wasn't so we bascially kept waking up to fix the sheets. The other problem we had was that our bedroom windows faced the back of a restaurant which left 4 spot lighs on all night so our room was very bright and there were no curtains only blinds. The worst problem was we went out on a Saturday and when we returned there was no where to park, the entire lot was full when we complained we were told sorry but they rent jetskies on the weekends & they let the jetskiers use the parking lot.So here we were paying customers over a holiday weekend & they allow other people to park who did not pay to stay there.

Every year we stay at the Oceanic one of our friends told us about Oceanic 3 years ago we have been going every since . Its affordable the rooms are cleaned every day. Staff is very friendly. Nice view , close to the boardwalk , quiet, peaceful, easy access to fishing and free access to the fishing pier.

listen for $33 a night you can not expect the hilton. I'll just give you the run down of our likes and dislikes.

Dislikes:
the "small" rooms are very small, they have bigger rooms but they cost more
no way to shield the windows from the morning light
the walls are thin so if you plan on sleeping past 8am bring ear plugs
the A/C was not the best

Likes:
LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!!!! it doesnt get any better than this
The private beach was small but we loved it
free fishing off the pier (normally its $6 per person per day) you have to ask the front desk for passes
the room was clean, did not see any bugs or anything nasty
we had a bayside room with beautiful views
the small rooms are not large enough for families that means that there will be no screaming kids in the room next to you
they have picnic tables and grills so you can save on your food bill, lets face it eating in restuarants 3 meals a day gets expensive
the pool looked nice (we did not swim in it because it was too cold out)

I've stayed many places in OC but after staying at the Oceanic I wouldn't stay anywhere else

Iam a return guest along with many otheres at the Oceanic, it may not be new but it is where you want to be. If you love the beach and are there for the view and convience this is the place. A short distance to the boardwalk and the inlet and bay outside your door. I have stayed at many other hotels and have found them to be cold and sterile. The staff and management go out of their way to be friendly. The rooms may be small, but clean. Although it is far from new it has the friendly atmosphere that I do enjoy.
So if you are looking for the jacuzzi, riding the elevator to the 10th floor and being ignored by the staff than this is not the place for you. And lucky for you there are a lot of those places to be found.
If this is what you want from your visit to the beach than I hope to see you there and you can become one of the many return "Ocanic Family"
