Yes, it is outdated, a little worn around the edges and no elevator, but it is the perfect beach motel! Walk to the beach, rent a bike and explore the area, especially Cape Henlopen. Lots of great shops and restaurants all within walking distance. Nice pool, rooms are spotless, mini fridge and coffee or tea round the clock in the... More

Ok, yes, this property is not brand new - but the rooms are good size, spotlessly clean, attractively decorated, have comfortable beds, loads of towels (even beach towels for the pool), private balconies, a mini refrigerator, and good size flat screen TV. AND, the room rates are half what we were quoted for nearby (newer) motels. I thought the pool... More

We've been coming to Rehoboth for years and found the Beacon in Lewes because it takes reservations for single weekend nights. It's GREAT for the tournaments, don't let SATB tell families where to stay. The Beacon does not have an elevator and has funny pastel colors in the hallways, pretty funky. It has a nice pool and deck for gatherings,... More

We go to Lewes every summer, and we always stay at the Beacon! The hotel is nice, I love the pool -- it's outside on the 2nd floor, which is awesome. The best part is its location. It's within walking distance of both the bay and the historic town. It's also minutes from Cape Henlopen and the Tanger Outlets!

Went to Lewes to look for some property and did not make an advance reservation. There was a large wedding party in town so the two best hotels were full. We ended up spending one night at the less than bright beacon. The room was clean, but worn/dated. The furnishings had to be at least 15 to 20 years old.... More

We needed somewhere to stay to catch early ferry to Cape May. This was convienant to ferry and downtown Lewes. 50's beach motif but clean & friendly and perfect for what we needed. A little pricey for it's age but it had the desired location.

This hotel is in need of a major makeover. The furniture looks like it was taken from an 80s Florida retirement home. The hallways are dark and dingy. Everything is in need of painting. The bathrooms are cheap and the soap in the bathroom looks like it has been re-wrapped from a previous guest. Carpet needs replaced, burnt iron marks... More

Beacon staff were friendly and pleasant, the room was fine--quiet with quick access to the beach. we read the other reviews and brought our own sheets and will probably bring our own pillows for comfort next time, but you can't been the price and location for quick...

The location of this motel could not be more perfect. While the rooms could use a bit of an overhaul, they are clean and the staff is extremely pleasant. The swimming pool is fantastic. All in all....well worth the price.

We've stayed at the Beacon every year for the past 12 years. We like the prices, the size of the rooms when you upgrade to a queen suite, it easily can sleep 6. It's very close to the Lewes Beach and the ferry, however we go to Cape Henlopen State Park. Downstairs are a few shops and a deli, also... More
