“Quaint...”
Reviewed June 16, 2014

Hotel Rodney is a lovely property situated right in the middle of "downtown" Lewes - easy walking distance to everything, weekend parking in the bank lot behind the building, great bar. So much going for it. Do not discount the comments about small rooms. We selected a Deluxe Room thinking that the queen sized bed and description would give us a bit more room. If you want to spend any time in the room you may want to go with a suite to get adequate space. And the creaking floors! It's a delightful, old building but with every step we (or our upstairs neighbors) took the floors creaked noisily. So maybe get a suite on the top floor.
The staff is pleasant and friendly, the bar was great for watching some World Cup action and the proximity to the shops and restaurants of Lewes is perfect.

Room Tip: Go larger and top floor

I had the chance to stay at this Lovely Boutique Hotel last week (June 2014). I found the Staff to be friendly and helpful. The Room which was a Corner Deluxe was spacious, clean and comfortable. I had every amenity one would need.
The room was tastefully decorated and the bed was very comfortable. The view from the Corner Deluxe overlooked the Historic town of Lewes which was perfect. I highly recommend this Treasure to anyone who insists on cleanliness, tastefulness and a nice getaway. The Town of Lewes is beyond charming and each time I leave the town I can't wait until my next trip back.

This is one of our have to trips every year. It is a beautiful little quirky hotel in the middle of all Lewes has to offer. The rooms are always clean and the beds are amazingly comfy. Also on one trip it was an occasion and they gave us a bottle of wine at check in. They always have a friendly staff, a new restaurant on site which had a great brunch, they even have bicycles they will loan you at no cost. There is an on site gym, not much to speak of but hey its included. One of our favorites and can't wait until our trip next year.

Room Tip: I always try to book a room away from the stairs. They are beautiful but a little loud and creaky.

Received a gift certificate for a weekend at this hotel. Corner room was nice. Bed is small. Fridge but no microwave. Great location in the heart of Downtown Lewes. On the phone the service was great. Not the same level upon arrival.

My daughter and I stayed in a suite and it was perfect. We both had our own tv, sitting area and big bathroom. The room was REALLY clean, the blow dryer was a good brand, nice coffee and high quality bedding. The staff was friendly and it was fun being right downtown. Wonderful experience!

I had to stay in Lewes overnight due to extreme weather conditions. My room was comfortable, very clean and well decorated with the amenities anyone would need.
The Guest Representative was attentive, pleasant and helpful. Perfect location for a getaway in a quaint, historic town and perfect for the business person as well. Many restaurants in the area to chose from within walking distance to the Hotel. Definately will stay at Hotel Rodney again.

Stayed one night in January. Room was very comfortable. The room was small but fine for one person. Bathroom was fine as were the linens.My room was at the top of the stairs and next to the elevator so there were noises so I would not want that room when the hotel is busy. It is an older building that has been nicely renovated yet still has old charm.Parking is limited but again wasn't a problem in January.
