“Once Again, Wonderful Stay at Oceanus”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 May 2011

This was our 2nd time staying at the Oceanus. Once again, did not disappoint. Got a great package deal for the last wknd in April. Clean, no frills rooms, with cable TV on a rainy weekend. Everything is walking distance. Friendly and helpful staff. Will plan another getaway soon! The outdoor pool area is relaxing and quiet. No smoking a huge plus!

Stayed April 2011, travelled as a couple

I've been visiting Rehoboth and staying at the Oceanus since 1993 and have nothing but good things to say about this motel. The location is perfect, staff are always friendly, and the rooms although basic beach rooms are always clean and ready for you when you arrive. The outdoor pool is the perfect place to relax after a day at the beach, or if you're not in the mood for the beach crowds. I would recommend this motel to anyone visiting Rehoboth, and I look forward to returning again and again!

We stayed here for a wedding weekend. We were in a king room with a pull out sleeper sofa. I found the rooms to be clean - not immaculate but very clean. We had an issue with a musty order in our room due to the humidity so they put a machine in the room to clean up the air.

The rooms were smaller than we anticipated. We had to put the coffee table under the bathroom sink in order to open up the sleeper sofa. Final negative was the rooms were very dark and could have used more or brighter lights.

Positives: LOCATION is amazing. You could walk to the beach. The hotel is right off the main strip. The hotel is QUIET. We didn't hear anything and we were RIGHT next to the pool. Staff was VERY friendly and extremely helpful with any questions or concerns.

We will definitely stay here again if we return to Rehoboth Beach!

Was recommended by a friend and we're glad we listened to her...great location, only 2 blocks from the beach/boardwalk and 1 block off Rehoboth Avenue. Park and forget it! Great restaurants and shops nearby, lots of people watching. Rooms were clean and spacious and comfortable. Had a refrigerator as well. Would definitely return!

I thoroughly read reviews here before selecting this hotel. Based on what I'd read, the hotel met my expectations. Our room was east facing on the first floor directly across from the pool. And if we looked hard on a clear day, we could actually see the ocean from our room. I called to make the reservation and was hesitant about getting a room right next to the pool. I was concerned about the possible noise. But during our one night stay there was no noise to speak of at all. I ended up appreciating the proximity to the pool for the convenience. I don't usually use hotel pools. But this one was very inviting - clean and well kept.

The staff was very pleasant and welcoming as others have said. We actually stayed on the property, in the pool and parked in the lot, about an hour or more after we checked out. And we weren't harassed about leaving.

The room was clean as expected. Nothing extraordinary about it at all. The beds were comfortable. It looked exactly liked the pictures on their website www.oceanusmotel.com. The rooms had a contemporary look which was nice.

The greatest thing about it is the location. Every restaurant you could want is within walking distance. The boardwalk is 2 (long) blocks away. But it's the part of the boardwalk where all the action is.

What I liked least? I don't like motels. I prefer hotels with rooms that open to the interior of a building. But for a motel, this place was just fine.

We only stayed one night but the front desk staff was wonderful and so friendly. Normally I'm not a "motel" kind of girl but we wanted something close to the action for 1 night and this fit the bill and budget. Great price! And the pool area is very simple and clean and nice. Our only drawback was construction going on at the motel next to our room so that woke us up nice and early. That was a huge drawback but it's probably done by now. I would reccommend staying here if you are visiting Rehoboth Beach.
