Reviewed 10 October 2011

Friends and I have just returned from the Oceanus and again we had a wonderful experience! The staff is so welcoming (thank you Ellen!) and has been for over 18 years that I've been staying here. Rooms look like they've recently been updated as well as the wooden staircase and pool patio...it's nice to see that the owners are reinvesting in this wonderful motel. Comfy beds, free WiFi, and coffee in the morning! The cool nights cooled off the pool a bit too much for our tastes, but it was still nice hanging out around the water. Also, great views of the surrounding area and the location is by far the best...quiet enough at nights, yet close enough to everything. Can't say enough good things about this motel!

Stayed here for the first time in Sept. Very good basic beach motel. Very clean and a good price for Rehoboth rooms. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The distance to the beach is about 2 blocks . I liked the location because it was very easy to walk to most shops and restaurants. Would stay here again.

Stayed here the weekend of September 24th. Overall a great stay even though we weren't really in the room all that much. Oceanus is your basic beach motel. Outside entrances to the rooms which form an L shape around the swimming pool. It wasn't really beach weather so I can't say what the pool was like, but it looked like it would be nice on a warmer summer day. Rooms were basic, but clean and quiet. Staff was friendly.

Can't beat the location of the Oceanus. One block off of Rehoboth Ave. Walking distance to all of the important stuff (beach, boardwalk, Dogfish Pub, and shops). Stoney Lonen is decent and right across the street. Just a block or so to some other good places on Rehoboth Ave. Just can't beat the location. Would definitely stay here again in season or off season.

We had a great stay at the Oceanus, it is located two blocks from the beach and very comfortable. The staff was so nice, we felt like family after only two nights!

Room Tip: We had a king room on the first floor, it was very quiet, clean and comfortable.

My boyfriend and I have stayed at the Oceanus at least a dozen times over the past five years. The rooms have recently been refurbished with fresh linens and big screen tvs. Always spotlessly clean and comfortable. We love the pool and the location.

It had been many years since we last stayed here, and I'm glad to say, its still as good as we remembered. Realize the summer beach season is over, but the review can still be helpful. We had a double bed room on the 3rd floor. The room was very clean and had a microwave, small fridge, and flat screen tv. All the rooms are non-smoking and free parking is available on site. The beds were a little soft. The motel also has a pool right outside the rooms which closes at dusk. The staff at the front desk is very friendly and helpful. The motel is less than one block in from the main drag, and two blocks from the beach. Easy walking to everything, beach, stores, and restaurants. The motel is a great value as you can't beat the location, room, cleanliness, etc. Would stay here again

I stayed at The Oceanus with my life partner & another couple who are our friends. We got separate rooms, ours was a King Bed + a love seat (sofa) on the 3rd floor, and theirs was a double bed on the 1st floor. We thought our room was nice, very clean, and I liked how the sink was granite. Their room was better looking as it had hard wood furniture for the bed's headboard, 2 dressers, and for enclosing the fridge & microwave. All of our beds were very clean and comfortable. The pool was also clean, not heated but it wasn't too too cold, and at dusk into the night it lit up with purple lights which was cool. The pool was only open from 10am-Dusk, I do wish it was open later but I understand why it's not. (noise could bother others and they would need big overhead lights for it to legally be open late.) The motel staff was VERY nice, they even let us keep our car in the lot for a couple hours after check out, so we could walk around and shop without paying for meters :) For the price, cleanliness, and being a short walk to Rehoboth Ave, surrounding streets, and the beach, it's definitely worth the price!
