“If you want a clean place to stay this is your place!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

Just got back from a 4 night stay at Rehoboth Beach. Location was perfect, we parked our car there and walked everywhere. Check in was easy and staff was very friendly. Walked into our room and it smelled clean! No musty smell at all. I always bring sheets and lysol with me and I did not need either of them. Pool was clean too! I have no complaints about this place and I am fussy. Cleanliness is the most important quality to me when looking for a place to stay. Thank you ... We will be back!

Thank you for taking the time to review our property! I am so glad to hear that you enjoyed our stay & that you found our rooms to be exceptionally clean to your standards. Our housekeeping staff works very hard to ensure that our guests have the cleanest rooms in town. Like you said our hotel does not have a musty smell like some of the other beach hotels in the area. The location of The Oceanus is great as well with everything you need within walking distance. We look forward to you hopefully returning to stay with us in the near future. Best wishes from everyone at The Oceanus!

The location was great. The room was not clean. The check in was efficient. The check out was also efficient for the motel. We received a call at 10 minutes after 11am (check out) to get out of the room. The staff was very focused on their needs not the customers. Even though it was a great location. We will not stay there again. It was not worth the price.

Room Tip: Make sure you dont get the room with the window facing the hallway.

Thank you taking the time to review our property & i am pleased to hear that you found our location to be perfect. The hallway room in which you booked was thoroughly explained to you over the phone when you made your reservation. You were explained both the location & view of the room, as well as the price. We never rent our hallway rooms out unless the guest is completely aware of its location. Upon check-out our front desk staff offers a kind reminder to guests that have not left by the 11 am check out time. We do so in a kind & friendly manner. I am sorry to hear that you did not find the value you were looking for in our property. We do wish you the best in your future.

What can I say? Well they have the most wonderful staff in town. Very friendly and always with a smile for everyone. They have always made feel alt home and when it is time to check out I feel so very sad to leave. I look forward to my next stay there and it cannot wait to arrive back home. And that is how I describe the Oceanus as home. To Shirley and Ellen thank you for bright warm smiles and happy faces. Wish everyone there a great day and I will be back soon.

Just stayed 2 nights (Friday and Saturday) at the Oceanus and had a wonderful stay. The hotel is in walking distance to both the beach and the center of Rohoboth. Only had to use the car once. Made reservations at two local restaurants and not only were able to walk there but went back to the hotel during the time we had to wait for seats.
The rooms were very nice, quiet (even though they are on second street) and the beds were very comfortable. We have stayed at other hotels in the area but this is the place to go. Unlike the other hotels which had a musty smell (common for the beach), their rooms were clean and fresh.
The pool was well kept for the time you don't want to fry on the beach.
All the staff members we met during our stay were very friendly.

Oceanus was a great beach motel. Located a few blocks from the beach and right behind the main drag, close to restaurants and shops. Don't expect a lot of amenities, it's a pretty basic motel. But the pool is nice, it's clean, and the staff is very attentive and helpful. Plus prices were very reasonable in the summer compared to other hotels in the area.

Room Tip: Ground floor rooms have some foot traffic near the pool, so get one on the 2nd or third floor for mo...

We just got back from our week at the beach and the Oceanus Motel and we had a blast. We are a family with 2 young children (4.5 & 1.5) and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The rooms weren't enormous but sufficiently sized for 2 adults and 2 kids. We had a room with 2 double beds. The pool was well maintained and never too crowded. The staff did a great job keeping the room clean and our requests (more towels and tp) were answered immediately. The bathroom was very tiny which would be my only "complaint" but really not that big of a deal. Perfect walking distance from everything (beach, boardwalk, restaurants, etc.) and we didn't have to move the car once. I can absolutely see us coming back next year!

This was our first time at the Oceanus motel, but it won't be the last. The staff is great (thanks a lot Ellen) , the rooms were spotless, and the pool area was perfect for escaping the very hot weather.
The motel is just a 10 minute walk to the beach and a 1 minute walk to Rehoboth Avenue where you will find lots of shops and restaurants. We never needed to use our car during our stay, as we walked everywhere. We look forward to coming back next year.

Room Tip: Room 200 was very private /a great location
