We chose this motel based on positive reviews. The motel is clean and quiet and the staff very helpful and friendly. We reserved two rooms and spent two nights and enjoyed the stay very much. The location, while not right on the beach, is right near all the usual tourist facilities, which made it convenient for a short trip like ours.

Went here based on TA reviews and their great 5 night special (Sunday night through Thursday night). Glad we did as everything was perfect. Nice clean room on the third floor was very quiet, even though we were next to the road. This location gave us our own fairly private sitting area at the end of the outside hallway. Nice location, clean pool, walked to everything we needed. Everyone was very friendly, morning coffee in the lobby was a bonus.

Finally made it to Polkamotion and asked friends where to stay and the recommended Oceanus. Well, I am glad they did. We had a second floor room which no surprise was very clean. The morning staff is great to talk to and the free coffee was good too. It is so convienent to the beaches, the main street and the convention center. I hope to still there next year once again for Polkamotion. The only thing for my wife is that the smell of the disinfectant they used brothered my wife's breathing a little. Maybe before we come next year they can use something different for the room we get.

Very clean, great service, many extras in room (larger than usual refrigerator, microwave), free parking and just a short walk to beach and town's main street. Also, were extremely nice and allowed us to change our reservation at last minute due to death in the family. All this at a wonderful rate.

When you read online reviews of the Oceanus, what do they all say? It's clean. And … clean. And did we mention that it's, uh, clean?

Why does everyone point to the cleanliness? Because that's pretty much all there is.

Mediocrity, thy name be Oceanus. Clean mediocrity. A certain safe, bland, middle-of-the-road, nothing-to-recommend-it-but-nothing-to-criticize-it-for motelishness.

We stayed for two nights in a room with two beds. The beds were comfortable enough. The linens were clean enough. We can't remember what color the walls were. We can't remember what kind of carpeting there was. All we know was that everything was clean. And neatly folded.

We would not be afraid to stay at the Oceanus again. But we would never go out of our way to stay there. The prices weren't great. The pool is small. The rooms are bland. The coffee is bad.

The location, however, is pretty darn good. Right at the corner of the main drag (Rehoboth Ave.) and 2nd St. A pretty short walk to the beach. Right around the corner from the bike rental place. Close to the bookstore. Close to a whole bunch of shops and restaurants.

Oh, I just thought of one decent feature of the room. The small fridge/freezer and microwave came in handy. Not every place has those, I guess. And a lot of places aren't quite so clean. Did I mention that our room at the Oceanus was clean?

We are glad that you enjoyed your stay & found our rooms to be clean and our location to be perfect. The Oceanus Motel has always prided itself on offering affordable and clean accommodations to our guests. We are not a luxury property, but do offer our guests a clean and comfortable place to stay in Rehoboth which to many of our guests matters the most. If you are looking for a clean, friendly, and comfortable place to stay in Rehoboth then The Oceanus is the ticket. On you next stay I recommend that you check out our sister property The Bellmoor Inn & Spa which is more upscale and may tailor to your needs better. We hope that you can return to stay at one of our properties in Rehoboth Beach again.
