Reviewed April 23, 2009

My family and I have been comming here for over 15 years, and we always rent several cottages. They're private and located away from the hotel noise. They have ample parking, the staff is friendly and helpful. Yes, it is an older hotel, but the service makes up for any of the little things that aren't quite "perfect". The pool is great and the only complaint I could have is that it's open to the public and it's hard to get a lounge sometimes. The hot tub is wonderful!
And having a "club" on the corner when you have a family is really convenient. You're never to far away from the babysitter & kids.
Can't wait to go this year...Look out Loretta and staff......We're comming back!!!

We stayed at the Oceanic for the weekend 9/6 to 9/9. We chose this hotel for the location and pool area. We happened upon it last year and loved the Tiki swim up bar and poolside entertainment. This year there was NO entertainment at the pool and they closed the pool for a private party on Friday night. I don't care if this group booked most of the rooms. If you stay at a hotel then you should be able to use the pool for the hours posted. Other than that we had a good experience. The room was clean, always had plenty of hot water. Just know that if you book a 2 room efficiency you will have a view of a cement wall through one little window in the bedroom. there is no AC or window in the living room/ kitchen area but it wasn't awful just a little stuffy and dark. There are no house phones in the rooms either. I thought that was a bit strange. Would we stay there again ? Probably. Just for location though.

we have stayed at the Oceanic every september for bike week for the past 12 years. we also come down during the summer for a long weekend with the kids when we get the chance. we have always had a great time. the owners are pleasent. the location is perfect. granted, its not the newest place in the area. but it has the old time shore charm you don't get at the new places. it has a good ole bar in the bottom level, and a swim up tiki bar at the pool and hot tub. you can see the ocean and it's 200 feet from the boardwalk. we've never had a problem here. there is parking enough and the staff has always been helpful. you want perfection, go stay at the Trump plaza. you want old fashioned shore that I grew up with, stay at the Oceanic. you want to go to the shore and hide in your room, stay home. shore rooms are for showers and sleeping a few hours.

The Oceanic Hotel was very old and in need of major updating. The pictures on the web site and brochure were very deceiving and nothing like what you really got for your money. The hall way & elevators were very dark, dingy, and dirty. There were stains all over the carpet in the hall ways & elevator. Plus neither the hallway or the elevator were air conditioned. The whole builing smelled of stale cigarette smoke. The rooms were very plan & drab. Our room had stains on the carpet, a torn shower curatin, and taped together remote control, no phone, coffee maker, hair dryer, etc. The pool & hottub were always cloudy. Plus anyone off the street could come in and use the pool for a $5.00 fee which I did not like. This is especially dangerous for people with little children. The only good thing about the place was the swim up Tiki Bar, the barmaid Britt who was very nice, and the lice bands that played by the pool every day. However, with the alcohol being served and people who were not hotel guest running about it made it a bad place for people with children. The other bad thing for people with children was when the live band palyed fro 2:00 PM to 6:00 PM every day the music can be heard through out the entire hotel including the rooms. This makes nap time impossible for parents with small children. Don't waste your money on this place, as it's not worth what they charge.
