stayed at the Beacon hotel for one night. So #1, they don't require a 2 night stay which is very convenient. The Beacon is also cheaper than other hotels in the area. we had a king standard room. the room was clean and nicely furnished. the bed was fine. the hotel is within walking distance to town and the beach....

This motel is close to DE Bay, walking distance, it's very clean, rooms very nice & the people who own it are nice, friendly& professional. It's also close (few miles) from Cape henlopen state park which has aa great beach!! We'd stay here again!

Was recently at this motel as I was passing through the state. The staff here was super nice and polite, but the place was extremely outdated. The cost per night is very reasonable, but don't expect too much. The beds were terrible and the power went out in the entire place for a couple of seconds during my stay. If... More

The Beacon Hotel has a great location on the Delaware shore with a view of the salt marsh out front. Lewes is an adorable beach town that is very walkable. Just behind the Beacon Hotel I had an easy walk to down town and the wharf area. The hotel has retail shops on the first floor and the hotel rooms... More

We were part of a biking tour on an April weekend, and enjoyed the stay here. The rooms are fairly basic--what you'd expect at beach areas--but large and substantial. The entrance is very modest from the front parking lot in the middle of a strip mall. There are 2 lobbies with comfortable chairs on both sides of the reservation desk.... More

We had booked this adorable Bed & Breakfast but there was a error and we were greeted at the Beacon Motel like we were family. The lack of elevator was a shock for us overpackers but we managed to get our luggage up and down without much duress. The room was average at best. We discovered Lewes which was an... More

I was a little skeptical when we arrived at the motel. Wasnt sure what to expect as we usually stay in a chain hotel out on coastal highway. The lobby was very homey and family/group friendly. The room was neat and clean, although ac unit was a bit noisy. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful with questions and recommendations.... More

This hotel has some good features: location: close to "downtown" Lewes shopping, beach and Cape Henlopen State park, it's clean, quiet, has ample parking,it appeals to families with small children and the front desk staff was friendly and helpful. The down sides: It is so outdated with décor! The lobby is "junky"- over run by trike bikes and toys. I... More

We were in a pinch as the hotel we'd reserved in Dewey Beach did not have our reservation, and EVERYTHING in the area was sold out! We called the Beacon & were relieved to snag their last room. We loved the friendly staff/owners. Very personable. Overall we enjoyed our stay as we would not have discovered the charming town of... More

Lewes is the best kept beach resort secret. Basically, it's a boater's town with access to the Delaware Bay and the Atlantic Ocean. It's a beach resort with a real-town feel. Small, not overly commercialized, quiet, but loaded with great restaurants and upscale shops. The Beacon is an older, recently renovated hotel with a homey feel. It is quiet, clean,... More
