We wanted to visit Lewes before the actual tourist season began. We were able to get one of their last rooms available.. The furnishing was a little dated and dark. If you wish a canal view, you must request a canal front room in the building on the canal. The main building, even with balconies, have views only of the... More

We had an excellent stay here at the Inn. The individuals at front desk were acceptionally knowledgeable about the area and the activities we could partake in. Room was comfortable and immaculate with a view off Marina and surrounding flowering cherry trees. Lewes is a quaint and beautiful town! The breakfast provided was also wonderful. A spread of fresh fruits,... More

We stayed one night at the hotel (May 3rd,2015) and I loved it and would definitely stay again when I am in the area. The room was lovely, with a comfortable, king size bed, and very clean. We were on the 4th floor overlooking the canal, with a small balcony we sat out on, enjoying the view. The hotel robes... More

The Inn at Canal Square has a pet friendly room that we have been visiting for many years with our miniature dachshund. The bathroom has been updated nicely with granite counters and a nice walk in shower. Our room had a water view...steps away from Gilligan's and convenient to everything walkable Lewes has to offer. The tulips were in full... More

Spent a couple of days at the hotel and it was excellent both in terms of quality and value. Great room (with separate bedroom and living room) and spacious balcony. Very good location right next to the quaint town centre. Highly recommended

Found ourselves staying overnight in Lewes, Delaware, scheduled to take the Lewes-Cape May ferry the next morning. Called for a room while in transit and we were treated as if we had been there a dozen times. The hotel is on a canal, and we had a lovely room overlooking part ofthe canal as well as part of the parking... More

Over the last 20 years, my wife and I have been staying at inns, hotels, and casinos from Bar Harbor to Orlando. We discovered the Inn at Canal Square about 10-12 years ago. One visit and we were hooked. There have been only a few places over the years that we have gone back to multiple times; the Inn at... More

This was our first stay at the Inn at Canal Square - a winter weekend escape from the cold and snow. We were very impressed with the hotel. Beautiful furnishings, spotless room, nice view, and above all, very friendly and personable service greeted us. We've overlooked this hotel for many years, but it will now be our primary go-to in...
