My sister, cousin, aunt and I are currently staying here. The staff is wonderful, the rooms are clean and the pool is very nice. It is just a short walk to the beach and all the shops and restaurants. I would recommend staying here to anyone not looking for a condo and the rates are great!

Do Not Recommend Staying Here, Especially If You Suffer From Allergies Or Migraines . . . Upon Entering The Room - The Nauseating Stench Of Mold, Mildew, And Dampness Hits You. There Is No Getting Rid Of The Smell. It Is impossible To Sleep With The Smell. No Sleep = Headaches = Sick.

It was walking distance to everything. In the past, I always assumed motels were seedy and gross places. The Oceanus has definitely changed my...

Decided to make a last second attempt at finding a reservation for my a family celebration and found a great 20% off deal, which allowed me to stay two extra nights. Convenient location to beach, Rehoboth Avenue, and stores. Nice pool for post beach relaxing. Great stay!

We stayed at Oceanus Motel for four nights. It was within walking distance to the beach, restaurants, shopping, and the boardwalk. Our family of four had a great time, and will surely stay here again.
