Many a fish story has begun at the Oceanic Motel. Located at the southernmost end of Ocean City, we overlook the Inlet and Assateague Island with their famous ponies. All rooms are air-conditioned and come with refrigerators. Guests are welcome to take a dip in our outdoor pool, fish off of our pier or relax on our private bayside beach. If the ocean is what you crave, the beach is only a short walk away.

Save money to spend at attractions. This is a basic stay and the staff is friendly and helpful. Heck, just what you save in parking fees makes this a total bargain! I will definitely be back. The view is awesome and a short walk to the boardwalk and beach makes this perfect. Pool well maintained and property clean.

Ive been down at the oceanic three times this year. Always a good time! Location location location this place has it!! From the friendliest staff to watching dolphins in the bay or going up to the beach for the day or getting on some boardwalk rides or fishing the inlet there is so much to do. Yes its an older hotel. Who spends time in their room? Cant wait till next year.

This cute little vintage style motel was recommended to us by other birders for its location close to the inlet and the beach, and it did not disappoint for that. However, it was super run down (examples, one light we had to plug in every time we wanted to use it because the switch was broken off, another we had to unscrew the bulb if we wanted to turn it off because it had a short. the furniture was worn and stained, and the bathroom mirror had not silvering around the entire edges so it was hard to use. It did have a fridge and microwave that enabled us to eat breakfast in our room. Rooms open onto the street so we could park right in front of our room and it was right off the boardwalk so walking down the midway was fun. The price was great, so the overall quality did not bother us, but if you want anything fancy or up to day, this isn't it.

It is maybe a little higher than 3 stars. The view of water is great. It is real close to a nice boardwalk. But you could not enjoy view from balcony because all the smokers. Maybe a designated smoking area on beach. The room was real small. The bathroom was only about 2.5 feet wide, but I understand they have bigger rooms. The room is clean and I did not see any bugs. The place is in serious need of renovation. Maybe renovate and charge more. Room needs blackout curtains. Way too much light in room from outside lights. I dont think I would stay again unless renovate. Staff was great and motel was easy to find, easy to get to and get back on road after stay.

HA. Dump pretty much sums it up. Should be condemned. The pics I posted tells it all. Was really surprised to see the nice pics on the web site for such a decent price. But then again...If it sounds to good to be true , it probably is. Shame on me for being so naive.

We just returned from a visit to OC. We read a lot of reviews before picking the Oceanic. We knew it was old but we were fine with that. With that being said we were on the whole happy with our stay. The two negatives were housekeeping and mold. Our second day we were outside and a Spanish speaking man came by with towels on a cart. He was very nice and he used translator on his phone to communicate. I brought out our towels for him. He never entered the room. The following day when we returned to the room there were clean towels. Our last day there we received no clean towels so I went to office to get them. We noticed that there was black mold on the bottom of the bathroom door. That was really gross! The pool was very nice. The Oceanic was a mixed bag but as I said earlier. I would stay there again if the housekeeping was more consistent. The location is great!

This is the best location in Ocean City. The rooms are a little small but some have been updated and I’m sure they will eventually update them all. The staff is always pleasant. We have/are staying here 4 times this year and I hate leaving and am always looking forward to the next time. This is not a 5 star motel but it suits us just fine.

Room Tip: Inlet view rooms are the best. Bay view rooms get a bit hot in the afternoons when the sun is...

nice view of the ocean from the rooms, parking is a little tight, rooms were clean but outdated. once you get the past the outdated part and enjoy what's outside your room that the ocean is right there makes this place a must stay. the boardwalk and amusement rides are about a 1-minute walk away.

My husband and I found this gem of a place a few years ago and now make it an annual anniversary trip. We love the view and close walk to the boardwalk. The staff is very friendly as well. 10/10 recommended!
