I've been going to Lewes/Rehoboth for many years and staying with family but this is the first time I ever stayed in a motel/hotel. We stayed from Thursday 8/18 - Sunday 8/21 and the rate was VERY reasonable. We arrived around 5:30pm, walked in the lobby which was big and nice. The fish tank was really neat and the chalkboard...

Very nice motel. Not a 5 star motel but very nice. The people including the maids are very nice. The room and motel are very clean. They had a fridge in the room and a balcony. There was also an area near the elevators to sit and relax. They have an outdoor pool which the grand kids loved. They even...

My family and I were looking for a place to stay near Rehoboth Beach. And although, not that it's walking distance to Rehoboth, Lewes is a cute town all on its own. The Beacon was the ONLY hotel we could find that was under $500/night, and within a 10 mile radius from Rehoboth. The hotel was a pleasant surprise. We...

First time staying here. Very clean and wonderful staff from the front desk to the cleaning staff (they were super nice). Location is fantastic! Walk 1 block to downtown Lewes or there blocks to the beach. We will go back!

We have stayed here several times the past two years and our only complaint is our disappointment that we didn't discover it years ago! The location is what makes it perfect as you can walk or bike to town and to the beach. And it is only a short drive into Henlopen State Park. The staff are incredibly nice, and...

Not fancy but everything we wanted. They are in the process of renovations so I don't know what's coming but the bathrooms have been upgraded. The rooms are a good size and include refrigerators and a small balcony. There is a good-sized outdoor pool on the second floor with a large patio and lots of lounge chairs. Because it's elevated,...

Exactly what we needed for a family of 5. Room was very clean, beds were comfortable and it was great that it had enough beds/spaces for all of us. Price was reasonable. Would stay here again. Says renovations/updating is beginning so that will be nice. Please don't take away the capacity to sleep 6 in a room- it's a rare...

The folks here accommodated us on every request...early check in, a different room when our assigned room's AC went on the fritz, and letting us keep a bag of electronic devices in the office so they didn't have to spend the day in a sizzling hot car while at the beach. There were strong storms expected to pass through and,...

The Beacon is a great value! Located just over the bridge from downtown Lewes and close to the ferry terminal and Cape Henelopen state park. The staff is always very friendly and accommodating. The room size is more than adequate and all the rooms have balconies and refrigerators which are nice features. Very clean and well-maintained. The best news of...
