Wow the newly renovated Oceanus Motel is a great place to stay. This was our first visit to the hotel and we found it super clean, serviced with a very friendly staff, and great location. We have stayed at the Oceanus sister property across the street, the more upscale Bellmore Inn, but honestly the lower priced Oceanus was much cleaner.... More

We stayed the week of the Jazz festival 10/18-20/2013. The motel was close to the beach, the rooms were clean and well maintained and the staff was helpful and pleasant. I would gladly stay there again.

Stayed at the motel for the Seawitch Festival. The staff was friendly. Rooms were very clean and up to date. Refrigerator and microwave in room. Free coffee and tea provided in the office. Very convenient to the Main Street, shopping, restaurants, beach and boardwalk. We parked the car and walked everywhere. This place was also the most inexpensive in the... More

This great motel is only two blocks from the boardwalk and great value for money. We booked direct with the motel, which was cheaper than booking via any discount sites. There is no elevator, so if you don't like steps, have a lower floor. We liked the third floor as it was quieter. Room 300 is on the end and... More

I decided to make a one-night visit to Rehoboth, my first in 40 years, and feared I would stay in a chain motel on ugly Route One. Imagine my delight to find a reasonably priced room at the Oceanus -- clean, spacious, a couple easy walking blocks from the boardwalk! Reasonably priced? I paid 1/3 the high-season price. Very helpful,... More

We chose this motel based on positive reviews. The motel is clean and quiet and the staff very helpful and friendly. We reserved two rooms and spent two nights and enjoyed the stay very much. The location, while not right on the beach, is right near all the usual tourist facilities, which made it convenient for a short trip like... More

Went here based on TA reviews and their great 5 night special (Sunday night through Thursday night). Glad we did as everything was perfect. Nice clean room on the third floor was very quiet, even though we were next to the road. This location gave us our own fairly private sitting area at the end of the outside hallway. Nice... More

Very clean, great service, many extras in room (larger than usual refrigerator, microwave), free parking and just a short walk to beach and town's main street. Also, were extremely nice and allowed us to change our reservation at last minute due to death in the family. All this at a wonderful rate.

When you read online reviews of the Oceanus, what do they all say? It's clean. And … clean. And did we mention that it's, uh, clean? Why does everyone point to the cleanliness? Because that's pretty much all there is. Mediocrity, thy name be Oceanus. Clean mediocrity. A certain safe, bland, middle-of-the-road, nothing-to-recommend-it-but-nothing-to-criticize-it-for motelishness. We stayed for two nights in... More
