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

Stay here several times a year. Always the same great family that runs the business. As stated by others, smack dab near the middle of town, very accessible to all adventures. Great pool for the family everything is very well kept. Not a chain motel, so you get friendly staff who all have "skin in the game"...very clean. Families with... More

Plenty of good parking. Close to beach and Cape Henlopen and town. Took 20 minutes in heavy traffic to get to Rehobeth. Clean room , amenities, towels , fridge, and tv. Would give 5 stars if they would update their bedspreads( underside pilling from washing) Nice pool and area which the children enjoyed until sunset.If staying for a longer visit... More

We were first time Beacon Motel visitors. The motel was within walking distance to food, stores and attractions. The room was clean and neat. The bathroom was well equipped with towels and soap. We would definitely visit the area and this Motel again.

Yes, it is outdated, a little worn around the edges and no elevator, but it is the perfect beach motel!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
