We visited Lewes for a quick side trip from D.C. The rooms were spacious and very clean. We had a lovely view of the canal from our balcony. Breakfast was excellent. Location was very convenient to everything. The service was unbelievably accommodating. I don't think I have ever dealt with a better staff! My only disappointment was that we were...

We had stayed at other places in Lewes and decided to try "The Inn" this time; we will never stay anywhere else! Perfect location, wonderful amenities (umbrellas when it rained, beach chairs and towels for a day at the beach, on site bar and restaurant <but independently owned>, complimentary continental breakfast, "bottomless" chocolate mint dish in the lobby, and more),...

I like to go to Lewes once a month to enjoy the restaurants (Agave & Nectar Cafe favorites)and pleasant strolls through the village and along the canal. Have been staying at the Inn at Canal Square as their location is perfect. From my very first contact with Monica, who told me the staff at Inn at Canal Square was one...

We had never been to Lewes and I chose this hotel because of other peoples reviews on trip advisor. I had several extensive conversations with Lou at the hotel, and he helped us to choose the best rooms for each of our family groups. We had ages 7 to 75. When we arrived, Lou shook my hand and greeted me...

We wanted to get away for a night and head to the shore. Since it was last minute, we were delighted to be able to get accommodations the same day. We were assigned a room on the 3rd floor and we could see the water. The description of being able to see the canal is a little misleading as there...

This hotel was quaint and lovely overall, but staying on an upper floor, facing the canal is highly recommended! Sitting on the balcony watching the boats sail in and out of the canal created a serene and beautiful setting. The continental breakfast was delicious. Lots of seasonal fresh fruit, unique pastries, nuts and cheeses and other treats that you don't...

Lewes Delaware is a boutique town that has preserved its history going back to 1680. In this context, this hotel is a boutique gem with wonderful taste, excellent personnel, very nice rooms, and an excellent breakfast. We had a great view of the harbor from our room.

We recently returned from a very pleasant stay at the Inn at Canal Square. Our check in with Lou was easy and informative. The entire staff was friendly and did a great job.

My husband, daughter and myself recently stayed at this lovely inn. I loved the decor and relaxing atmosphere. I especially loved how clean our room and bathroom were. Breakfast was your basic continental style. Hoping to get the chance to stay here again, since we loved this little town.
