A friend and I went to Lewes for a quick trip and stayed at the Vesuvio. The location can't be beat. We walked around Lewes admiring all of the flowers (miracle-gro take note) including the lovely park at the Visitors' Center, into town for pastries and coffee, half-off happy hour, and dinner. Our room was immaculate. Décor is '70's. John,... More

My husband and I stayed here the first week in August. It is not a luxurious, but it met my three criteria which are listed above. The price was reasonable and it had a refrigerator which I like. I think when we stayed last year there was also a microwave - perhaps they have them in some rooms. It is... More

I stayed in the Vesuvio Motel in August for 2 nights. The motel is centrally located but the noise of the traffic over the drawbridge is very annoying at night. The rooms are very clean but the furniture and bathrooms s very old and half broken. The towels are threadbare and they do not provide toiletries such as shampoo, conditioner... More

I selected "very good" overall because of the location -- right in town, short walk to everything (including the beach and bicycle rental place), plenty of parking. There are a few caveats though, and some might find that these brought the rating down closer to "average" for them. First, as other reviewers have noted, the decor and facilities are no-frills...

My wife and I stayed there for two nights this week. We found the room to be very clean and the location of the hotel is very good for shops and restaurants. However it has a few big drawbacks. There are no blackout curtains on the windows, which makes it very bright in the room at night. We solved the... More

If you are looking for a basic clean no frills place to park yourself for the night, the Vesuvio Motel just might meet your needs. This motel looks like it’s right out of the 1960’s. The guest rooms are on two levels - you can park your vehicle right outside your door if you are on the first floor. All... More

My husband and I have been going to historic Lewes, DE for the last seven years. In 2006 our son and his family rented a house for the whole family and the same year purchased a beach house on the Bay . Our ever growing family has had to find additional lodging when we are all there together. We always... More

We just spent another great week at the Vesuvio Motel. We were welcomed as always by John and Karen. We came 3 times this year and hope to be able to come one more time before the year is over. The Motel is just what we need, the room is large and has cable TV, and is well kept clean.... More
