The inn could use an update. The front staff were not friendly. I am going to look for a different place to stay next time. If you need a pet friendly place then come here if not find another place to stay.

This was a very nice beach hotel - only about 12 rooms. Rooms had fridge and microwave balcony with seating (upstairs). Tile floors. Bikes available. Parking on site. Cheezy breakfast. Pet friendly. Room air conditioner. We came from Cape May which is basically closed down this time of year. Rehoboth was hoppin.

My husband and I had a great time with our two dogs at the Canalside Inn. The owners are very friendly and accommodating. Our room was comfortable and very clean. The continental breakfast was a wonderful opportunity to meet other guests. The location of the inn is very quiet, but also very convenient to Rehoboth Avenue, the main street in...

I loved the Canalside Inn. It was a beautiful room and most of all we could bring our dogs. It was on the canal and very pretty. I would rather stay right on the beach, but I had a hard time finding a place that is dog friendly. I thought it was on the pricey side for not being on...

Canalside Inn is directly off the main artery into Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. It is on a quiet, tree-lined street, within walking distance from some restaurants. The hotel caters to adults-only, and has a requested "quiet time" of 10pm for all guests. They are "dog-friendly" for well-behaved dogs. My room was clean, bright, and tastefully-appointed with modern, Ikea-like furnishings. Continental breakfast...

Location was very quiet, and property was nicely decorated and very clean. The walk to shops and the boardwalk was about a mile, the bed was low and soft - not good for bad backs. Furniture was the same, including the single day bed in the room. Toilet was low...hard for those with bad knees. Shower was great - a...

We stayed in early October and got a rate less than charged by the fancier chain hotels on Coastal Highway. Our room was big enough and nicely decorated, but faced the back of the hotel with no balcony. The hotel website implied (as I recall) that all rooms have balconies. It also implied free bicycles which were not in evidence...

We loved our stay at the Canalside Inn. We had one of the 1st floor studio kings, which opened up onto the front veranda overlooking the canal. We ate breakfast at a cozy outside table in the morning and watched thunderstorms on the comfortable couch seating area at night. Would definitely stay there again!

Right off the bat, was not happy that hotel policy is non refundable deposit (50% of room rate), period. Better make sure it's what you want. I can understand no refund of deposit within a reasonable time period before the booked date. The accommodations listed on their website are misleading.
