My family and friends rented the bottom 3 bedroom cottage and let me tell you, it was our first and LAST time at the cottage. From the Internet and pictures it looks like a great place to stay. When we arrived and looked around, this is what we found..... Floor is uneven and anyone who has balance issues, could easily...

Recently stayed September 15-18, 2016. Rooms 21 & 22. Its hard to believe this room was a far cry better than last years room above the office! Dirty rooms all around. By this I mean the carpet is nasty, the baseboards all around are horrible, probably mold growing. Not sure the air quality in the rooms is good. Does this...

If it weren't the flies in the room, which conveniently they provide a fly swatter, it was the ant's or dead flies in the bathroom. oh yeah, the bathroom -- the entire bathroom is no bigger than a closet. If you are a bigger person, like me, was VERY difficult to use. We had 2 double beds and I thought...

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...

First I have to say that this is an old motel and needs a little TLC. It is what it is. We don't go to the beach to stay in our room so it's fine for us. If you are looking for a luxury room this isn't it. We've been staying here for 5 years every summer and just love...

Staff was very friendly/accommodating Cheap motel for a SHORT trip BUT....Room was pretty dirty, it could use a thorough cleaning Location/view was the only worth but I guess you get what you pay for Only stayed 3 nights or we would have checked out before we even checked in

We are just leaving from a 4 day stay. We parked the car and never had to get back in it, close enough to walk to the beach with all chairs and coolers in hand. The fishing pier was a ton of fun with my kids catching tons of fish and crab. And the pool was perfect to cool off...

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
