great location but otherwise not worth it

The staff was amazingly friendly for the most part, and you honestly can't get a better location. The view was absolutely breathtaking. On the other hand, our bathroom was covered in mildew, and had no fan (it got extremely humid when we showered because there was no vent fan). The room looked half ransacked when we checked in- the TV had been left on, the sheets were not straight and the end table was very messy. Maintenance was great, our AC wasnt working well when we got there and it was very quickly resolved, and he even checked in with us layer to make sure it was ok. There was trash under our bed, and we even found a pair of sandals someone before us left. Housekeeping didn't seem to do a good job... we requested no service during our stay, but we saw him at a nearby room, and his cart was outside the same door for 2 hours. Who knows what he was doing?!? We booked a smoking room, just to arrive to find out the entire motel has been non smoking for 3+ years, which was important to us, not so much to other people, but if you're a smoker, beware of booking a "smoking" room. The AC didn't keep our room very cool... unless you were sitting right in frono of the ac unit, you couldn't really feel the air. The units should be in a window next to the bed, to keep it cooler during the night. Our sheets were also damp our second night there due to the humidity in the room. I'd consider staying there again due to the amazing view and convenient location, but I will be prepared to clean the room myself upon our arrival.

First vacation in 3 years

The oceanic hotel is in a great location. It boasts a private beach, however it is not a great location by a fishing pier. The pool is great! The rooms need some updating, the beds were really old. They need to do a better job with the housekeeping. The room smelled moldy.

Great place for simplicity

If you get a bay view room you will be very impressed. The actual rooms aren't the nicest but a bed, shower, and tv is all you really need since you shouldn't be in the room much. I loved waking up and walking right outside to see the sunrise and the bay water 5 ft from me. I would stay again in a heart beat.

Anniversary Get away weekend

Me and my wife planned a last minute get away for our Anniversary which happened to fall on Memorial day weekend so most of the Hotels I stayed at down there were booked, found this one. If you are looking for a hotel that has a great price, unbelievable views and a super friendly staff and your fine with just average rooms and amenities. This is your stop. a two minute walk to the rides on boardwalk and the beach with a 10% off your breakfast at the dinner across the way....you cant beat it. Me and the wife are definitely going back!

Great birthday from my husband

Older hotel from the 50s I was told but very well kept. The staff was wonderful always a good morning when I saw them. They all went out of there way to make our stay wonderful. Hotel is at the beginning Ocean City, everything you want to do and need is in walking distance. Water views from the inlet and bay, fishing right outside your room and free passes to the fishing pier, grills to cook on, play equipment for the kids even sand. A small beach on the bay to have fun in. Loved are stay there!! Thank you to the staff for making my birthday stay wonderful!!!

oceanic motel, good value

do not let the two star rating deter you from trying this motel. the management is super nice. cleaning staff is very cordial. conveniently located to boardwalk and beach as it is right at the inlet. plenty of free coupon books at check in. also a 20% off coupon off total bill at the exclusive Harbor watch restaurant located next to the motel. great view, very relaxing. not upscale but then neither is the price. spend money you save on boardwalk fare.

Oceanic Motel Review

The room was small & the bathroom was even smaller! Some days the staff would vacuum up the sand in the room & other days they wouldn't. Still, I would probably stay there again because it is cheap & convenient location. Staff was very friendly.

We enjoyed the fishing on the Bay Bee which is just across the Rt 50 bridge. Take the first left after crossing bridge & go to bait shop across from Mickey Finn's Restaurant. Also had dinner at Mickey Finn's & food was excellent. We recommend the crab cakes!
