This motel is not anything fancy but does offer a great location and place to rest after a long day out and about at the beach. This was my third stay here in three years. Located at the end of Wilmington Avenue, this motel is a perfect location to stay in Rehoboth. Since this beach town is easily traversed on... More

I picked it because of reviews and photos on this site. It was exactly what I expected. This not a fancy place, this is a beach place! Great location. Good restaurants steps away from my room. Basic, comfortable,very clean room. As everyone says, the bathroom is way too small but the sink/vanity area is big enough. Room could use a... More

The Oceanus is a great motel with parking available. It is close to everything in town including the beach. Although they do not provide breakfast, they do provide good morning coffee. Employees were extremely helpful in finding locations for auto repair and venues for our sports. Would stay there again.

The location is perfect. The rooms are clean, the pool is immaculate. The staff is friendly. You cant ask for a better place. Its perfect... More

My girlfriend and I (yes...I'm also a woman...) wanted to head to Rehoboth for a long weekend, so she made reservations here. She's stayed here before with no issue. After an afternoon on the beach, we jumped in the pool for a swim before heading to our room. Not ten minutes into our time in the pool, the manager called... More

We would like to take the opportunity to explain that we are family friendly motel and that we hold all of our guests to the same standards no matter their sexual orientation, race, creed, or other factors. This guest was not merely kissing her partner, but rather making out with her in the middle of the pool. When this was... More

We have stayed here before and decided last year that we would prefer to be on the beach. So we paid double for a beachfront hotel. The room we had was slightly bigger and yes it was great to sit on the balcony and watch the ocean, however, I truly enjoy staying here more and that's why we came back... More

A pleasant motel and very well situated right off the main drag. It's not the best place I ever stayed but it was friendly, clean, rooms are okay size with good facilities (microwave and fridge in our regular room) and it's a motel...so I couldn't really ask any more from it.

We love this motel and have stayed there the last two years. It is very clean and airy. It has very new and very nice furniture. The comforters and bedding are colorful and the beds are comfortable. There is no old, dingy and marked up furniture in this motel. The owners clearly make a point or keeping the place top... More

Overall our stay was pretty good. Friendly staff, love the pool, nice location. The room was clean but there was a musty odor. Biggest complaint would be the noisy air conditioner. We would stay here again though.
