Accommodations are Spartan but you don't go there for 5star, you go there to enjoy the view and fishing opportunities! The staff is always professional and courteous. Every year I plan a trip here to kick off the fishing season.

My dad and I have been staying here for 4 or 5 years now. The staff is lovely, easy parking and there is always free coffee and fruit in the check in area. But what I love the most is the "private beach area" (that's what I like to call it). You walk out from your room and there is...

If your looking for thrills in the room you will be disappointed, however its was clean and had a comfy bed. Old and Outdated but the location was absolutely perfect for our needs. I would stay here again.

I stayed in an Inlet view room, It was small and the bathroom is very small,but the room was very clean. The staff was very friendly and free coffee and fruit is provided in the lobby. Also, the view can,t be beat. I always enjoy my stay at the Oceanic.

The location of motel is perfect, the view when sunny is lovely. THEN you open the door to the room and it all goes down hill from there..... I have travelled around 45 of the states in America and have experienced some bad motels and this is in that category, The rooms could be lovely even though they are extremely...

Being close to the beach was the only thing that seem to be a good thing. Inside definitely needs a make over. Once walking inside, the carpet was very dirty with stains and a very strong musky smell. The furniture was old except for the refrigeration and microwave, TV's were flat screen which was good. One of the beds headboard...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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. ... more   less
