16Passport should be valid for at least 6 more months + you have a valid GCC (UAE) visa. If you have a professional title (e.g. Engineer, Manager, etc) you will get visa on arrival at the border. If you have some doubts regarding this, better to apply in the Oman Consulae in Dubai (or Abudhabi), within a matter of a day or two you will get the visa stamped. One main advantage in getting visa early is it saves you time at the Oman border.
To get visa at border, first you get UAE exit stamp (Mayzad UAE border post) before you go to Oman border post at Jebel Hafeet. See googlemaps, these are clearly marked.
Many travel forums (e.g. Tripadvisor, or this forum, or others) will help you find the different types of accommodation you need.
I felt Nizwa rooms may be costlier, compared to Salalah furnished apartments.
