“Very nice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2012

My husband and I spent a long weekend at this motel and had a lovely time. The rooms are nothing fancy but they are comfortable and walking distance to everything-- which is important during the summers in Rehoboth! The rooms were clean and the beds were comfortable,my only complaint would be the loud AC unit. Nice place for the money!

Always clean rooms and courteous staff. Location is excellent. The pool is great to come to take a dip after a day on the beach. Pig and Fish restaurant on Rehoboth Ave is awesome too. Will definitely return.

I hadn't been to Rehoboth in about 3 years, and was excited to return. In the past I had stayed at the Oceanus, and loved it. I travel with my 13 year old son, with special needs. We were both happy to return to the Oceanus. The staff even remembered us! The remodeled rooms looked great. As always, the room was clean, the staff very friendly, and the pool very clean. It's centrally located, making it easy to walk everywhere. And everytime we've been there, the guests we encountered were friendly as well. I hope to back in the fall!

We decided to go to Rehobeth Beach, DE last minute after going to DC & we chose this motel to stay at. We were please with the fact that they updated the rooms since the last time we stayed here. I hate hotels & motels that don't put money back into their rooms. This hotel is nice for several reasons 1) nice pool 2) close to shopping district 3) only 2 blocks to beach. Be careful of some of the name brand hotels which say they are at Rehobeth Beach but are really 4 or more miles away & on Highway 1. The 2 things I was slightly disappointed in was the bathroom smelled a bit like urine & if the parking lot is full in the front you have to park in the alley. This is behind the hotel & you can't see your car from your room which I feel isn't safe. In addition the restuarant behind was constantly getting deliveries & made it hard to get in & out. Just so you know what to expect to for a room here with a King bed & pull out couch in August $230 a night including tax. Which I think is a little high but you only live once as the saying goes. The one thing missing from Rehobeth Beach in general is they need more mini golf courses.

Nice hotel with updated rooms, lots of shops and restaurants within walking distance. Only problem we encountered was finding it. Their actual address does not work in an gps systems, not even onstar. They need to put a notice in their website to tell visitors to plug in the address of 207 second street to their gps, that will get them here. Overall a good value compared to other hotels I had researched.

My husband and I stayed at the Oceanus with our son (9 months old) for a week. The location of this motel can't be beat (the only way it could be better is if it were right on the beach). Everything you could possibly want is walkable (shops, restaurants, the beach). The facility was clean and well maintained. Finally, and perhaps most importantly, the staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. We will definitely return to the Oceanus!

Hotel was extreamly clean and the staff was so friendly. The hotel was pretty crowded but we didn't hear a sound at night which was great. Its in walking distance to the avenue as well. Pool was very clean and it lights up at night! Great Place!
