Our family have been coming here for more than 20 years. Hubby loves to fish and our kids when they were younger would always have a good time.

The title says it all.. Location. Location. Location.. This hotel has been a choice of ours while visiting OCMD for the past 6 plus years.. The location is superb.. If you enjoy fishing and jetskis you can't get any closer than this and the boardwalk is a few steps away.. The rooms are a bit on the "older side" so... More

We have stayed at the Oceanic many times over the last several years. It is very convenient for those who love to fish or for those who just want to sit on the beach or boardwalk. If you are looking for glamour this is not the place for you.... It is an older motel but the rooms are clean. We... More

If you're looking for glammer, this might not be the place for you. But if you are a fisherman looking for a room just to sleep in, it's perfect. Our room was small with two double beds,small bathroom a fridge and t.v. When you walked out of the room, you are looking right at the inlet. Walk out and you're... More

We stayed here one night, because our usual hotel decided to only be open for the weekend this year during the car cruise.

This was the 2nd time we stayed at the Oceanic. I was hoping that they would have improved it since the 1st time we stayed....boy was I wrong! We paid extra for a "queen" room with a "queen" bed.

We've been staying here for about 23 yrs. Obviously we love the place. You can walk to just about anything you want to see or do and can go fishing right out your door. We always go for Sunfest and stay the following week. Crowds are gone and most everything is still open on the boards. Sure it's an older... More

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
