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. We had a nice spacious room with a balcony on the fourth floor, giving us a nice view of the Lewes & Rehoboth Canal. Housekeeping did a... More

My son, husband and I stayed in a Harbormaster Room on the fourth floor for 4 nights. The room was spacious and extremely clean. Our room was very quiet, we could not tell anyone else was staying at the inn. All of the staff were super friendly and helpful. Breakfast is provided and you can also borrow beach chairs and...

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.

My wife and I stayed there for the past 2 nights. We were very pleased with the spacious corner room. It was clean, nicely decorated, parking was adequate and staff was helpful and friendly. The Inn is just a block off Main Street, an easy walk from the Inn. It also sits right at the canal and marina. They serve... More

We were lucky to have booked the a harbor front king room for one night over the July 4th weekend, and was delighted by this wonderful inn! The location was perfect for checking out the historic town of Lewes, Delaware by foot. The room and bathroom were very clean and comfortable, and the staff was very gracious in helping us... More

I stayed there because I was accompanying friends who were celebrating their 60th anniversary. Relatives with a house nearby had planned a party lasting several days, so there were many family members and friends around. I should point out that only a few of us stayed at the Inn; most stayed with the party planners at their house. Anyway, my... More

The perfect spot with the perfect Inn; gracious hosts, wonderful breakfast, central to all activities in the area and easily walkable to most; this is the place to stay in Lewes. We were on the flourth floor and had great views of the canal and nearby boats, there is an elevator, the roo was spacious and had a small balcony.

What a wonderful hotel. We reserved our boat slip and docked right in front of the Inn. They also are dog friendly. Lou was great at the reception desk and a wealth of knowledge. Great clean room and a fabulous restaurant just two steps away. Just a 30 second walk to Lewes shopping district. We will definitely come back!

We stayed in the Inn many times over the past year, while visiting Lewes and house hunting there. Every visit was lovely, and we came to know the staff well because of their warm and generous hospitality. The breakfast is loaded with very fresh fruit and pastries, with the usual continental breakfast fare. The buffet was always well stocked and... More
