“Great Location. Great Motel.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

Our family has been staying at the Oceanus Motel for more than 25 years. The staff's service is outstanding, the rooms are clean and have been recently updated, and the location is great for walking around town. There are countless restaurants close by, some directly across the street. It's just a short walk to the beach and boardwalk.

Room Tip: When you stay for more than one night, you typically are given a first floor room. If they aren'...

I had stayed at the Oceanus a few times before- but only for one night, and I was very pleased. We brought Mom along for a long weekend, and I knew she would like it here. Well, our expectations were met and exceeded! The room was absolutely spotless and we were amazed that even the bathroom fan was clean as a whistle! The pool is lovely after a hot day of walking and beaching. The nice thing is that it is so close to everything- beach, restaurants and shopping.
Stay here. No need to look further.

The Oceanus Motel in Rehoboth Beach, DE is a great place to stay! We've stayed there for several summers now and it's the one place we really enjoy and would recommend highly to anyone. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. The staff is friendly, polite and very accommodating. They offer wonderful, affordable package deals throughout the season and beyond. The Labor Day package is a great bargain. Less crowds and usually good weather make it a truly enjoyable experience. Highly recommended!!!!

This is a wonderful hotel - it is well maintained, the pool is sparkling clean and so are the rooms! The front desk staff are friendly and helpful. The hotel is located just 2 blocks from the beach and one block from many shops and restaurants to choose from. You can walk to the beach, no problem. It's convenient to everything, but quiet. I highly recommend this hotel if you are staying in the Rehoboth area - we'll be returning.

Room Tip: We had room 200, which is on the second of 3 floors, on the end. It was nice because there is no fo...

I am so pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us, thank you for taking the time to review our property. The location of The Oceanus is ideal, close enough to everything, but still set back enough to enjoy some peace & quiet. Rooms 200 & 300 are our most popular rooms due to the reasons you described. With everything within walking distance you never have to move your vehicle. We all look forward to you returning to stay with us again in the near future. Best wishes from all of your friends at The Oceanus Motel.

We stayed 3 nights and had a terrific stay. The accommodations were clean and the room was in good condition. The motel is centrally situated so the beach, restaurants and shops are only a short walk away. Once we arrived we never had to move our car, other than to drive to Lewes to go fishing on a head boat. Not having to drive is truly a big deal, as parking can be difficult. We watched folks leave the beach to drop more change in their meter. This motel is just 2 blocks from the sand. The pool looked fine, but we never used it.

Bottom line is we will return to Rehoboth and will stay at the Oceanus!

Great location, clean, decent size room, free parking (we didn't move the car at all during our entire stay- everything was in walking distance), nice swimming pool! Loved having a microwave and mini refrigerator in the room. We will be back!

My only piece of advice is if you are traveling with a little one, which means you're bringing a lot of extra stuff, try to reserve a first or second floor room since there is no elevator.

Heading into our final day of a 5 night stay here, and yet again we've had a great time. The staff does an amazing job here keeping everything running smoothly, and as always, the room and the property is spotless. A special shout out to Shirley who goes above and beyond, and has a heart as big as the ocean. Can't wait to come back.

Room Tip: There's no elevator, so if you have trouble with stairs, choose a first floor room.
