Reviewed 20 June 2011

This place is such a hidden gem. People are cool and they are there to make your stay comfortable. Right from the Bar to the front desk, everyone was, well... Cool. The Pool Bar is the highlight and they serve food right there in the Hot tub. If you want to have fun after the beach, it can't get any better than this. Talk to Fred at the front office, he's the best.
Forget the bad reviews and go with an open mind, you'll have fun!!!

I stayed at the oceanic hotel 2 weeks ago, I go twice a year for the carshow weekend and always stay at this hotel, the location is perfect, close to the beach and boardwalk. Love the pool and the hot tub. The staff is so friendly and helpful. My room was comfortable, had a nice view , can't say anything bad , have neen staying there for about 12 years for the carshows and irish festival , its a real nice time.

The rooms were very dark, the hot tub was green and the pool area had broken chairs at the tables.
We were disgusted by a situation we experienced by the pool and didn't want to stay another night. When we talked to the manager about checking out, he said we would NOT get a refund, but yet he totally agreed with us wanting to leave this hotel.
Do Not book this hotel if you want a clean room, pool and a fun experience!!!!!

I have been going to this hotel for many years. This hotel just got new owners and they have ran it into the ground. If you have come to this hotel pre 2010 season your thoughts might be that its a nice place, dont be decieved the new owners have turned it into a slum. Upon checking into our rooms we were met by a very nice lady who just didnt have all her wits about her. she wasnt even sure if our rooms were cleaned yet and check in is at 2pm we got there at 5pm!! Well turns out our rooms were clean however the maids orget to tell anyone. should have known then that their maid service is less than par. After being in our hotel for a night my 2 1/2 year old found a test tube shot glass with dried liquor on it. when asked were she found it she said behind the bed room door. which means the maid never even closed the door to look behind it. I went straight to the front desk and complained that this was still in my room. I was given the opportunity to stay a nite at a discounted rate. i agreed that was fare. then after being there for two days we started noticing bites on ourselves, we thought they were just regular misquito bites. on the fourth day my friend found one crawling on her bra that was in the dresser!!!!! we went online and looke dup bedbugs and sure enough thats what was there.immediately we went to the front desk and we were greeted by Ken a two faced fake. ken came to the room to look at it and when he had arrived he insinuated that we had brought the bed bugs to them!!!!!!! All my friends ripped their clothes out of the drawers and were looking for more bugs when he flat out stated that how we lived was a disgrace because of all the clothes everywhere, and that it was obvious that we brought them there. Then we pulled out the sleeper sofa and found sheddings all over the mattress, which proved they had been there for months. Then after all that he said he would find us another place to stay and offered 5 ppl a room with two twin beds and had the nerve to get mad when we said that wasnt adequate. so he found us another room in a near by hotel that was absolutley attrocious. so it being 3 in the morning and having my 2 1/2 year old still awake at this hour we slept on the floor and beds of the small two twin bedroom. we got in there at 430 after washing all our clothes. and they had the nerve to not tell the maid that the room was occupied and to leave us so we got woken up at 10!! then they only want to give us 2 nights refund because we were leaving and only had two nights left. Ken actually used the words well your on you rown have fun!!! to me at 3 in the morning when i told him we needed another room.
So everyone this once decent hotel now is infested with bedbugs and wont even admit they have a problem so its only gonna get worse!!!! If you dont want bedbugs in your house do not stay at the Oceanic Hotel across from the convention center in WIldwood,NJ

All rooms have been examined by a licensed exterminator, sanitized and certified bug free.
September 2010. No bedbugs were found. It is customary for us to sanitize on a regular basis.

I stayed for two nights. They advertised pool side grill as an amentie, but your not allowed to use it. The two ladies and the two guys that handled the front desk were very helpful, but the manager (John) was very rude. The rooms were very old and dirty. The hallway had a foul odor. When you're paying over $500 for two nights, you expect better service and nicer rooms.

Reading earler reviews really turned us off, but my daughter had already booked the place so it ws a done deal. While it was old, it was kept up it fit the bill. The furniture was old and somehwat worn, but the room as clean, the linen was clean, the carpet was new. The bathroom was adequate, towels suffuicent. (The bath faucet did not work but the shower faucet did. The pool DJ ended at 6 pm so there was no loud noise , There was no smell off mildew in the rooms or hallways, something that we often find in shore hotels The loctaion was close to the boardwalk, beach and rides, but not so close that you could hear the noise from the rides. This was a decent value for the money

Overall our stay was really nice.... i was going in kinda scared because of the other reviews on here... but it turned out to be a really nice place to stay.... it wasnt a hilton or anything like that...nothing facny... it was just the normal beach hotel you would expect to find... our room was clean.... it was quiet at night.... our room had a pool view and in the afternoon you could hear the music from the pool playing.. but the pool parties seemed to end at 6.. and they didnt start until around 2 or so.. cool place to stay!

ps the pool was awesome!
