Great Location, we have been coming for over 5 years, walk to the beach about a half mile great walk no parking to pay at the beach that way. Walk to historical Lewes and boutiques in quiet streets just a block away. Located right across the Warff and boat marina. A nice family place. We just spent another great week at the Vesuvio Motel.
I spent 3 nights at the Vesuvio Motel and could not have been any more pleased. The room was large, clean and well maintained. I checked in when the owner was away and he left the room key in an envelope taped to the office door. I spend many weekends on the road, staying at mostly national chain hotels/motels, but this motel ranks right up there. John is the owner and is always there for his guests. I am returning to the area the end of July and have already booked my room. A friend recommended the motel and I was more than pleased. Second street, which is the restaurant and shopping district is only one street away, so you can walk and leave your car in the spacious parking lot.
We just returned from Lewes, DE where we spent 3 nights at the Vesuvio Motel. We were looking for a reasonably price ($75-$145 depending on season and day of the week) when our son's beach house was full. The Vesuvio was perfect because we liked being in town near restaurants, shops, farmer's market, art show and the 4th of July activities. The hosts (John and Karen) provide a comfortable, clean, attractive place on a great location (no worries about parking!) on the Lewes-Rehoboth canal next to some of the historic Victorian homes for which Lewes is famous! The public bay beaches are free and within walking distance and the ocean beach is 5 minutes away in the State Park ($4-$8 for a car full of people). John is always available to help or just to chat! We look forward to our next stay.
This is the BEST motel at any of the Delaware beaches. You truly are treated like family. Mr. Vesuvio is one of the nicest people I have ever met.I am looking forward to yet another weekend in Lewes....I would never stay anywhere else!
Thank you Mr. Vesuvio!
The vesuvio is a family run business, and when you stay there it feels as if you join their family. I can't say enough about how wonderfully they treat us. We fish out of the Angler's marina with Captain Ted, one year the weather was wicked and I was unprepaired, needless to say John lent me his personal raincoat and I fished in complete comfort!!! A very big thanks to the vesuvio family.
Val and all of the L & M Club
My daughter and I have stayed here and it is the only place in Lewes we will stay. We look forward to our yearly visit with the wonderful and friendly owners and can't wait for our visit this month-08/09. In our hearts they have become family. They try, and succeed, to make their motel very welcoming to all who stay with them. To stay at the Vesuvio Motel only adds to our visit.
As far as the price goes, I can not remember from year to year what the rates are, but I know I have never been displeased with the price. I am close to the beach, the shops, and a price can not be put on how friendly and caring the owners are.
My family and I stayed in the family-owned and oriented motel a couple years ago and have never forgotten the experience. The owners are very kind and helpful...like family. The location is great, with access to all you would want to do and see in Lewes. While we often camp, when we are looking for accomodations in Lewes again, we will choose Vesuvio!
We have stayed there twice and both times the rooms are very clean, the owners are very nice and helpful. The location is just a plus it is within walking distance of everything that Lewes has to offer. I would stay there any time.
The rooms are being remodeled and are looking wonderful...They have gone up in price to 108.00 but well worth it for where they are located...the owners are very friendly...the rooms are clean and if you want to check out later their very understanding and will allow just leave a tip for the maid...very nice motel in a small town that's quiet...
