Verified Reviews of Oceana Inn

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Just Meh"
Overall Score3.0/ 5
The pool is filled in even though ALL of the advertising for this hotel shows a pool. The breakfast is cold cereal or oatmeal. Our view from our room was a fence where some person had pooped and wiped their butt with receipts and then stuck them to the fence between this hotel and the neighboring property. and the housekeeping staff walked into the room while I was working with a do not disturb sign on the door. One of the staff at the front desk is very rude, all the others were very nice but the guy that checked us in late at night was not very nice and not accommodating at all. The room was not bad, the bed was comfortable and the hot water and heat worked well. Distance to the beach is just a little more than you might want to walk, but not terrible.
