Great location, you get what you pay for. Building-wise it’s a bit outdated but other than that, no complaints!

I loved the location, you could walk anywhere from the hotel. I enjoyed waking up and walking out to sit on the Motels personal beach. They could use more seating, on the weekend their was no outdoor seating available- all the fisherman had them. The bed was unbearable, I understand you cant be picky but it was bad! There are no curtains and they need new blinds ( gross dirty and you can see though them), you could see in our room from the outside. But the people were amazing, the staff made you feel like you were family visiting from far away. I would stay again and hope for a better bed!

I placed the “do not disturb” sign on my door, and when I came back from the beach there was a staff member in my room. He acted flustered when I asked what he was doing and didn’t answer. When I told the front office they said he was just new. Upon my return to my room I found $20 missing. I asked the staff member who was in my room where my money was and he took me to it. He had taken it. When I told the office they didn’t think it was a big deal. Will never stay there again.

Nice hotel close to boardwalk, beach, and lots of restaurant nearby. Bus stop is with in few blocks and short walk. If you are looking to rent Jet Ski it is right next to the motel.

Close to everything which is nice, but room was entirely too small. Bathroom was the size of a closet. No tub, only stand up one person shower. Ok if you stay alone or don't mind being cramped up. Two older ladies that work there are very nice and polite. Younger guy not so nice.

My husband had to work out in Ocean City, MD..instead of driving back home that night we ended up staying the night. At the last minute I had found this Motel for a decent price within the hour we were leaving. When we first got there the lady at the office couldn't find our reservation and told us we had to wait for a different person to come back within an hour. She took our info and credit card info in case they never found our reservation they would have to charge us again ..they did give us a different room, which was a little bigger. Eventually we were called back and everything was in order. The room was small but clean. There were 2 double beds I believe, a chair with an ottoman, a microwave, and a refrigerator. The bathroom was small but again it was clean. I had read reviews right before booking and saw where a few people were talking about how they had to ask for soap and toilet paper...so I brought my own which they did have available in the room. The air conditioner was a window unit which was ok if you pretty much sat on it, it was warm that day but wasn't so horrible it was better than nothing, plus we didn't stay in the room much because there is seating outside of room and more importantly near the water. The office had coffee, apples, and bananas available plus there were a few drink machines selling soda for $1 which I was amazed by :) We never went near the fishing area or store but there were many people in that area who looked as if they were having a good time, as well as the pool area. For the price it was pretty good

Room was small and outdated but exactly what we expected. Actual hotel area was very nice, amazing views, friendly staff, will definitely return

It was a relaxing weekend getaway for my husband and I. People were friendly.pool was clean.rooms could use a little updating but overall was nice.

This is a great location right on the inlet. You can watch the boats come & go, fish off the jetty or walk to boardwalk & beach. We didn't have to drive the car the whole weekend, close to restaurants and things to do. Rooms are small and old but clean.

So close to the beach...it was awesome! It was my sisters first time at the beach and she had such a wonderful time. We went parasailing..which was right outback!

the room was about 10 x 10 bath 3 x 3. very old and not kepted up to date. Peeling paint in bath and around door frame. My husband and I could not walk around the room. I would not stay there again!!! and would not recommend to anyone!!

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.

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.

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.

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!

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!!!

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.

I do Apologize your wing had two doors to it and one had a DND and the other had maid service. He thought it was his tip but he did put it back
