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

We stayed at the Beacon Motel for one night b/c we needed a place for only one night and that can be difficult in Lewes in the high season. The Beacon impressed us as a throw back to the good old days. It is not a chain. It is very clean and individual and the staff are helpful. We would... More

We had two double rooms for three nights starting 7/10/13. Clean, comfortable with a great location. Close to everything including beach and dining options. Staff is friendly and helpful even allowing my three grandkids to ride bicycles in the lobby during the rain. Pool clean and plenty of chairs and tables with umbrellas. Will return.

The Beacon is a reasonably priced motel, no frills, comfortable beds, clean, very accomodating and friendly lobby staff. It is one of only four hotel or motel choices in downtown Lewes and just a short walk across the canal to the major area for dining and shopping. We did not use the pool but it looked clean and inviting. There... More

We went to this hotel having found it recommended in the Lonely Planet. Great location and really friendly staff- like a home from home. The pool is great and there are some lovely restaurants just in walking distance and you are just minutes from the beach too. Comfortable room with a balcony too.

We had a positive experience, but we were only there to sleep. Staff were very friendly, hotel is dated but clean, rooms aren't cheap on the weekends for what you get, but they don't require 3 day stay. Would stay again (during the week), location is awesome!
