The Beacon was real easy to find and a decent value during high tourist season on the beach. It wasn't far from the beach, within a mile or so. We appreciated the deli and rental shop on the first floor of this hotel. We didn't make it in to the pool, so I can't say anything about that. The room... More

My fiance and I stayed at the Beacon Motel in Lewes, Delaware the first week of August 2008. We arrived on Sunday and left on Saturday morning - I think our bill was around $975 for the week. This was a nice motel with clean rooms and friendly staff. It is within walking distance to the public beach and downtown... More

Stayed at end of October for a birthday/anniversary getaway weekend. Pleasant, large, very clean room. Lots of towels, plenty of hot water, comfortable bed, fridge, coffeemaker. Try the deli in the same building for an inexpensive but satisfying breakfast (lots of locals eating there). If you like fabric, stop by Mare's Bears Quilt Shop, also in the same building (along...

We have recently returned from a weekend in Lewes DE. We stayed at the Beacon Motel. The motel is clean and the staff very friendly and helpful, but you do have to get their attention because they are hidden from the front desk area in a back office. We stayed on the 2nd floor, no elevators! So be careful if... More

We just returned from a delightful stay at the Beacon Motel in Lewes. The motel was quite adorable - roomy and very clean. It was close to the historic and shopping district, and also the beach. The staff was quite helpful in giving information about eateries, etc. The only drawback was that they have no elevator. Since I have difficulty... More

I was really disappointed with the Beacon Motel. The location is about the only good thing -- it's right between downtown Lewes and the beach and walking distance to restaurants and shops, with a sandwich shop/convenience store and a bike rental shop on the ground floor. It feels run-down from the moment you walk in the door, and it gets... More

This motel as a real pleasant surprise! We did not have a lot of money for a room and were afraid of what we might have to settle for! This place was a gem! The rooms were colorful and clean! The staff were all very friendly and cheery! Even the cleaning people seemed like they were having a good time!... More

I stayed at this hotel April 20-21, 2007. I was in the area for a wedding and this was the least expensive option. It was a great location to the downtown area and the room was very clean. It was a great value, however, it was not in peak season. During peak season, I'm not sure of the value. The... More

Recently stayed at the Beacon Motel for a little getaway with my 8-year old daughter. Terrific place for a weekend at the beach. Our 1st time to Lewes, DE - absolutely loved the town. It's adorable with cute little shops & a great restaurant - Striper Bites; which is within walking distance of motel. Motel rooms are spacious - downside... More

It's a really nice hotel. The rooms are clean, comfortable and very attractive. The staff was nice and helpful--we got a great recommendation for breakfast. The setting is nice and you are right by the town bay beach. There are nice restaurants within walking distance. There's just one problem: No Elevator! All the rooms are on the second floor or...
