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...

We stayed here for a wedding for two nights. The hotel is older but its great for a "beach motel". Very clean, spacious rooms and the staff is wonderful. If you're looking for more luxurious accommodations, it might not be your fit but it is a little gem in a great town at a great price.

We stayed at the Beacon Motel for 5 nights in late June 2015. We couldn't reserve a king room for all five nights due to availability so we changed rooms to a standard for the last night. Some here have criticized the motel's decor for being dated. I found it to be cheerful and "beachy". Some here have criticized the...

Nice family run hotel. It's not the Ritz but who cares. It was perfect for our needs. The front desk could not have been friendlier or more helpful. Checkout was at 11:00am but we weren't ready to leave for a few hours and they let us keep some food in their refrigera tour until we were ready to go.

We have stayed here several times, due to either the only place with vacancy's or the price when it's a quick one night stay. Don't know if I will return, the appointments and décor are lost in the distant past and look like everything came from a yard sale at the beach. The last stay seems to be my breaking...

Incredibly friendly and accommodating staff. We booked two rooms at the last minute. The staff went out of the way to get us side by side rooms with an early check in so we could get ready for a wedding. This hotel is quaint. The decor is not updated but it is very clean. It is kid friendly with several...

Popped into this motel spontaneously this summer for one night. Room was clean and great location in Lewes. Staff very nice. Big outdoor pool that was really nice! Room had mini fridge and balcony. Not fancy place but clean and well maintained.

We recently stayed with our two little ones. The lobby is so family friendly with a giant chalk board for kids,rocking horse dolphin, little bikes, a table of puzzles, and an intriguing large fish tank (you will appreciate this on a rainy day!) The housekeepers are extremely nice, always smile, ask if they can help you, and are always busy....

This hotel has a great location, but was definitely tired. The beds and furniture were well used and need replacement. But the room layout was great and most rooms had a balcony, which I enjoyed a great deal.
