We just returned from a great weekend in Rehoboth, thanks in large part to the Oceanus Motel. We usually rent a house further South for a week, but decided to take some shorter trips this summer. One of those trips had to be to the shore, and Rehoboth is always our favorite spot to travel to close to Philly. We originally booked a room outside of town, but based on past experience hated the thought of drivng in and fighting for a parking spot. Oceanus came up, and fit the bill based on what we read online. Once we got there, we knew the good reviews weren't just fluff. This is a beach motel -- L-shaped 3 stories overlooking a pool and parking lot. Nothing fancy, but absolutely nothing wrong with the place. We had a top-floor room which you could actually see the ocean from. The room appeared to be new, with nice carpeting, wallpaper, clean and new furniture, tiled bathroom, operational and clean smelling wall A/C, etc. Large & clean micro-fridge (also appeared to be new), and a nice TV with plenty of channels. Lots of clean towels and extra bedding. The property itself was also immaculate. Freshly painted stairs, nice tropical flowers on each floor's landing, and a very well maintained pool with clean and comfortable lounges. Staff was always friendly and constantly cleaning & maintaining (even though everything seemed fine as it was). We wanted to park the car (free parking) and leave it -- and that's what we did. The motel is located a short block off of the main shopping street, and the street the motel looks onto also has a lot of restaurants & shops (in addition to Grotto Pizza, we ate at Fish + Pig and Henlopen City Oyster House, and loved both). Wilmington Street is 2-blocks long from the boardwalk up, and dead-ends at Oceanus. My only warning is that it is a long 2-block walk with beach chairs & kids' stuff, but we survived it fully intact. Just plan accordingly. Couldn't say enough good things about the weekend and the time we had. Will be back next time we are looking for a long weekend beach stay.
