Stayed one night in this quaint inn and wished we were staying longer. We had the corner room overlooking the marina on the 4th floor. The room was very spacious, clean, quiet and comfy. We loved the decor! The complimentary breakfast was plentiful. They offered fresh fruit, varies breads, hard boiled eggs, pastries, yogurt and cereal. The employees were very... More

Stayed there last year and am going back again this year. Reasonably priced, perfectly located. Charming without being cute. Staff is attentive. Free parking. Right on the canal. The room was large with a king bed and a nice sitting area. The breakfast was simple, but good and the best part is you can walk to everything in town (town... More

The rooms are good sized with king beds and a small sitting area, the baths are a separate sink\mirror and than tub toilet behind a closed door. The breakfast was simple but good and... More

We spent two evenings here at the start of our two week trip down the east coast. Although I had read the positive reviews , we were very pleased and surprised by this unique and lovely Inn. All of the elements added up to an Inn that I highly recommend and will visit again. From the canal front location, the... More

The location on the canal is perfect. The hallways have nicer antiques than most collectors. Service is just right. There when you need it, otherwise unobtrusive. We had a Harbormaster's room facing the canal and with a small patio. How lovely it was - worth the extra cost.

We had our management meeting here and the staff was fabulous and incredibly friendly. The meeting room was the perfect size for our group (24). The accommodations was lovely and very comfortable. The location was great with shops and restaurants nearby, and a 15 minute walk to the beach. The food was outstanding. Freshly baked scones for breakfast and the... More

The Inn at Canal Square is right on the canal and in the midst of the best shops and restaurants -- it is situated at the best side of the canal. There, you are located where the most independent, foodie-type restaurants, interesting shops, and quaint, strolling-around, small-town feel is. The OTHER side of the canal feels remote from where you... More
