So uncomfortable

I cannot believe the price they charge for this place! The mattresses were old, creaky and uncomfortable. The floor is old and badly needs replacing and I don’t think was clean, the bottoms of our feet were dirty from walking around in there. The owner should be embarrassed at the quality of what they offer!

Rip off

Pros: Nothing.
We were very disappointed with our stay. The room was in disarray. The door jams were filthy. The shower ran water all over the floor. And the price was way too high. Plus we had to give $100. deposit for damages that might be caused. But how do you cause damages to a room that is already substandard?

Needs a redo....

The Oceana Inn needs some work, updates. Dead pillows, beat mattress, rusty doors. "Breakfast" was white toast, or raisin bran, or frosted flakes with coffee milk and juice. That's it. Spider was a roommate.

Next time I will do more research

I arrived to a surprise 100 down payment I wasn't prepared for. Each day I had to get my keys reactivated at the front desk which was inconvenient. The owner was very cold and unfriendly which made me feel uncomfortable to bother ask them for anything extra.
