The staff was amazing and very friendly! The location is perfect. I was afraid the noise from the rides close by would be an issue, but that was not the case at all. - The website, however, is very mi...sleading. My boyfriend and I made it work, but the room was incredibly small. All of the reviews were correct when they described the rooms & stated that the entire place needs renovated. There are some stains, paint was peeling, and there was rust. The room was clean, though!! The rooms are just very outdated and make it seem as if they were dirty. We double checked and looked for bed bugs - none of which were found. We did not have any type of problem with any ants or flys (mentioned in numerous other reviews). I will admit at first I was sketched out.. but it grew on us and we would stay there again! Hope this review helps! See More

My husband and I love it here. It's reasonable and you can't beat the view. We love to fish and this is the ideal place for us. Staff are great too! Now, the rooms are small. If you get a family, you're better off, otherwise, it's hard to change your mind in the small rooms. But hey, how much time are you in the room anyhow? I'm looking for somewhere to shower and sleep. other than that, we're out and about! We stay here every year! See More

It is a decent place for the price, could use some updated decor and the bathroom made larger. Parking was a horrible, we left to go eat dinner and came back and there was now parking went into the of...fice to say something only to find out they share a parking lot with 3-4 other business. If I pay almost $1000 to stay here on vacation I should have a parking spot to park in, what is the point in parking permits if you just let people park in your lot that are not staying in your facility. It make you not want to drive anywhere for fear of not having a place to park when you get back. The staff was friendly however we will not be staying here again. See More

Ok let's start with the positive...the location is awesome. Right at the inlet and just steps from the boardwalk. It's reasonably clean. The staff is friendly and helpful, and the views of the bay and... the inlet are very nice.

The problem is the place is very run down. There's paint peeling from the ceilings, bowed paneling on the walls, and frightening wiring. Modern travelers carry a bunch of electronics, but there are only 2 outlets in the room and they're already crowded with a rats nest of wires and extension cords. Looks like a total fire hazard and could be easily remedied with some lamps that had outlets in the base.

The rooms are tiny. Like prison cell tiny. If you have more than 1 person in the room you'll have to constantly dance around each other. The beds are extremely uncomfortable and sink in the middle. There is nowhere to put anything and nowhere to hang your wet clothes.

Not a great experience overall. The only reason I didn't give it 1 star are the good things I mentioned above.

Had a fantastic time. Close to everything that's fun. Friendly staff. The sunsets are to die for. The pool was clean. One time, the soda machine ate my dollar. That was my only bummer. thanks, again, ...for the wonderful time!!! 👍👍👍 three(3) thumbs up. 11 out of 10 would come back, again. See More

The only thing good about this Motel is the location. The rooms were small and disgusting and way overpriced. They were dirty and bugs everywhere. Definitely in need of a major makeover. Never stay ...there again. I think they just need to tear it down and start all over again because it is a great location for a nice Hotel. See More

RUN RUN RUN! This was the worst hotel ever. It was dirty, bed wasn't changed, roaches and we got bug bites just standing in the room. We asked for a refund and the rude lady at the front refused to... call the manager because it was 10 pm. I cannot express how horrific this place is. We left and had to find another hotel. See More

After a very rough check in experience, we were dreading the week ahead. We have stayed here before, and this was a complete shock to us. The staff last year was awesome from check in to housekeeping... and maintenance. However I had the absolute pleasure of taking to Joyce and Angie about everything and all was smoothed over and taken care of. I also want to shout out to Beverly and Red. Beverly is hands down the sweetest person, and an awesome cleaner (coming from a former Operations Manager of a big name hotel brand) and Red is sweet and always came running when he saw either me struggling with our stroller, or my grandma trying to go up or down stairs. We stayed at the Cottages at the Oceanic, and I could not tell you all of the great things about this place. Tons of space (my party was my mom, aunt, grandmother, my husband and our 3 kids), 1 1/2 baths, a nice size living room and kitchen- a table big enough to sit comfortably for dinner, and an awesome balcony! The property is not 'fancy' but it entails all you need for a nice relaxing beach vacation, and you can not beat the location! We are more of 'pool people' than 'beach people' and this location allows us to play in the sand without lugging all of our stuff out on the beach. There's a fishing pier right next door that you don't need a permit at, and a pool to die for. Every time we come back here, they've added something to the property. There is a playground for the little ones with quite a few things to play on. The only drawback is the flies. Which, for the view and the location I will deal with the flies. I know my family enjoyed their stay here this past week and didn't want to leave today. If only I could live there all the time . If you need a place to stay, Oceanic has it all! See More

I couldn't wait to come to this place cause it was close to the inlett and great place to fish. When I first arrived to my room I went to the bathroom and seen a huge terd sitting in the toilet and wh...en I tried to flush it it would not go down. Then later I sat down Indian style in the floor and poured out my bag of m&Ms on the floor and accidentally ate about ten flies. By 7:00 I was ready for bed and when I lifted the covers off the bed there was a condom with dry semen in it. I started to gag cause it smelled like it had been there since the 80s. I picked the condom up and took it to the front desk and layed it on the desk and said I found this under the covers. The fat lady just remained in her chair and said that shouldn't of been there and I was like no duh. She picked it up and threw it away and gave me molded apples like that was suppose to make it all better but it was a very nice place to fish that was it See More

We always have a great time here. We have a girls week in July and we bring our hubbys in September to fish. Just want to give a shout out to Beverly who is an amazing person. She always has a smile o...n her face when she sees us and usually a hug comes with it. We love stay6on her floor because she goes above and beyond for her guests. And Angie is a God sent in the office. We always are greeted by our name like we are part of the family. We have never had a problem with check in or out. (Maybe out because we don't want to go) as far as the negative reviews I don't know where some of them come up with them. I think they want a free stay. Well maybe they should go and try it at another hotel and leave this one alone. See More

For 200.00 a night I really expect something cleaner. I always stay here and know its an older place but I like the location but this time I'm disgusted. The fridge smells so bad like fish that we can...'t even open it or use it, there's filth all behind the nightstand, mildew all over bathroom and we had half a roll of toilet paper. Also no sheets for the sofa bed. So filthy I really don't want to even stay here but I've already paid for four nights. also room is so filled with flies that they left two fly swatters by the TV for us.o h forgot to mention only one outlet works so I'm walking over an extension cord that's plugged in to get our TV to's draped across the room between beds.sparks came out of the outlet when I tried to move it. Ants are all over the room as well. See More

We stayed here this past week from June 5th through the 8th. I have nothing but wonderful things to say about staying here. The staff and other guests were very friendly and treated us great. We ev...en made friends with our neighbors in 67 (we were in room 66 bayside). We spent our mornings and evenings on the deck talking and admiring the breathtaking view. The rooms were small and older but very clean and cozy and honestly that's what we loved about it. It was charming, like staying in your grandmother's guest bedroom. Everything is so close and you just never tire of the fantastic view. We did not want to leave and we are planning to go back with our children. This is our new favorite place and I know we will be visiting as often as possible. We highly recommend staying here, especially if you love that home like atmosphere that also has the benefit of being a little bit of a paradise. See More

Filthy. Great location, but noisy from boardwalk rides at night. Filthy rooms. Bathroom light only worked intermittently, flies in room no matter how many we swatted. Had to ask daily to have garbage ...taken from room and for clean towels. Asked others and they said their rooms weren't cleaned daily either. I have pictures to share! What a shame this place is so run down and dumpy because of it's location and great views. See More

I had high expectations for my long weekend getaway up until our only toilet clogged up at around 10 pm with no employee on duty who was willing to fix it until Sunday morning. The only resolution was... for us was to go all the way to the office bathroom during the night after arguing and pleading with the second and third shift desk clerks for three hours. I'm normally fine with staying just about anywhere except for the places that have owners/management who skimp on 24/7 on-call maintenance to fix problems as simple as a toilet that cannot be unclogged with a plunger. Motel guests shouldn't have to worry about where they will have to go to the bathroom during the entire middle of the night, especially on a weekend. If I would have known that I couldn't get a broken toilet fixed at 10 PM, I would have picked a different motel. See More

Our stay here was terrible. The room was extremely dirty and filled with Ants. It saddens me after reading some past reviews that these problems have existed for years and they fail to do anything a...bout it. They just opened for the season this month it really baffles me how these rooms can be so dirty. We were NOT the only guests to have these problems, after speaking with other guests they expressed the same concerns. While we were checking out and explaining to the office about the dirt and ants there was another guest in the office who also stated they had ants. The response from the office was...."Oh ok"....seriously...that's all you have to say. So that sums up their concern. We will never stay here again and I hope other people stop staying as well, maybe they will then put some effort in to making things right. See More

This motel wasn't what we were expecting! What we enjoyed most was the location and the view of the bay. The room was so small it made it hard to move around in. The bathroom was tiny, you could barel...y get showered and changed comfortably. It definitely needs major updating. Its a shame because the location is great but the rooms are awful. See More

My husband and I actually got married on the beach of the Oceanic. The place would be soo much better if they put some money into it. We went several yrs and 2004 we married there after a few yrs of s...till going there we decided it was time to move on. They don't improve the rooms and they really need to. It's sad because the view is so nice but not worth the rooms. See More

Friendly, Always willing to help you if you need something. I have gone there since I was a kid and I am 66. I would not stay anywhere but there. Close to the beach and board walk. All your needs are... right there in walking distance. Including Fishing, and Ammusement rides. If you look close you can even see the wild ponies. Watch the fishing boats come in from their bi g catch of the day See More
