This was our fourth trip. We again reserved a premier suite on the ground floor, as they are renovated and spacious. The staff is warm and welcoming, as always. It's our home away from home, and the best fit for our spring vacation. Units are cleaned thoroughly and the 24 hour free coffee is marvelous. The pier is of course...

The basics in a motel at the beach. A place to put your head at night, private beach, beautiful weather, pier fishing, and companionship. Awesome trip. Will be back. Staff wonderful with beach chairs and umbrellas. Seashells were awesome.

The only reason I didn't put 5 stars, is because it is an older motel in need of some renovation, which they are working on. We stayed in a one of their"budget" rooms at buy 2 nights get one free(pre-Memorial Day special)and was very satisfied Room was very clean and even had a newer flat screen TV.

Oceanana is nothing fancy but it is a staple at Atlantic Beach. They have their own beach front access with complimentary chairs as well as a pool. They are right beside a fishing pier which comes in handy, and the pier house also has really good food. They are also right down the road from Fort Macon National Park. Oceanana...

I had been looking for a fairly inexpensive weekend get-a-way from the everyday hustle and bustle of a hectic working environment. A co-worker of mine told me about the Oceanana Family Motel in Atlantic Beach, NC. The motel has been around for many years and it shows, but what it lacks in appearance it more than makes up for in...

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. We will take another look at our furnishings right away. Even though we uphold the "retro" theme, we do not want the furniture to fall into disrepair. Thank you again, we hope you decide to make another get-a-way soon.

As unbiased of a review as I can give I would simply say that it all depends on what you're looking for when it comes to a place to stay at the beach. They advertise rooms that have been renovated, and other rooms that haven't been renovated, for a lesser price. I decided to go with the renovated, two double...

Thank you for your honest review. Even with the renovations, it's still a facility built in the 50s. However, an uncomfortable mattress is not something we want our guests to experience. Would you mind giving us a call to tell us which room you stayed in? Had you called the office, we would have been happy to replace your mattress...

The rooms are nice and very clean. People are very nice and friendly. I loved staying there. The pier is right there, if you don't want to fish all day go to room and rest. Just a great place to stay.
