The location of this hotel could not have been better, but I was less than thrilled with our stay. The hotel was recommended to me by a friend, but I think there are better priced hotels that are actually nicer than this one. But...you have to be willing to give up the location. We did love being close to the art walk. Our room only had a ceiling fan so the room was stuffy. Aveda products a plus! The other up side is they do not require a two night stay!

The Hotel Oceano is really all about location. They are one of the few hotels that actually do not require a 2 night stay (at least in April) and they are right across the street from the beach. Plenty of shops and restaurants nearby as well as Sambos. Short walk to State Street and the wharf. The hotel is really just okay. Room we stayed in was not carpeted other than an area rug and floors were quite dirty. No A/C, simply a ceiling fan which was fine with us. Did not use pool and tried to use their bikes but by 7:15 am they were all checked out. A little inconvenient in the sense that if you need anything you have to call for it. Need ice, an attendant brings it. If you do not tip him you are a tool, so the ice cost me $2. Parking is also a pain here. Spaces are tight so better not bring anything larger than a true compact or you may end up with dinged doors in the morning. Also depending on the location of your room, it could get noisy. We were right by a staircase and there was lots of traffic going up and down all night so a restful night we did not have. Overall, stay here for the location only.

Pros: yummy breakfast, location, very helpfull front desk

I've stayed her once before and in comparison to this last time, it was like night and day. The first time I stayed there, I had a nice room (with a flat screen on the wall) on the top level near the front pool with a view of the ocean.

Pros: Location

Cons: Parking, guest service, outdated rooms, price

After a nightmare B&B experience at The Orchid Inn, finding the Hotel Oceana was a relief. The staff was helpful and accomodating. The rooms were clean, spacious and tastefully decorated with newer fixtures and a refrigerator in the room.

Pros: Clean, Comfortable, Ocean Views

Cons: Stains on carpet, Charged Afterward for Mini-Bar We Did Not Use - Had to call TWICE to be removed

Very cute little hotel - layout is kind of confusing though. We got there, the people were friendly, the view was nice. Definitely not a place for the summertime though because the rooms ventilation system is horrible so it would be

Pros: cute, romantic, affordable

Cons: too close together, no AC, SUPER small showers

.

For the price, I was expecting more from this hotel. The view of the ocean from our room was nice though. The balcony wasnt exactly private though. The location of this hotel truly couldnt be better because not only is it near the oceans, but it is also near restaurants and some shopping. The service here was terrific.

However--the room wasn't very big and some of the staff were snobby.
