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...

For what appears to be a privately owned hotel, this place offers some wonderful service, and real homey and comfortable environment. Walking into the hotel is like walking into a beautifully decorated Living, cozy and inviting. The smell of LILIES is overwhelmingly beautiful, and I was told is one of the signature features all year long! I, for one, LOVE... More

My husband and I stayed at the Inn at Canal Square for two nights in early December. We made reservations on the phone with Lou, who could not have been more accommodating. He was knowledgeable about the hotel and the area and extremely service oriented. We were greeted by Ron, the afternoon/evening desk Manager. He too was personable and eager... More

We stayed at the Inn at Canal Square and were delighted with all aspects of our stay. From the pleasant greeting by the Desk Clerk as we walked in, to the clean, spacious and comfortable room, to the truffles on our pillows, to the breakfast bar in the morning, everything was just right. With a partial view of the canal... More

This is a beautiful place. Breakfast was delivered to our room at the precise time requested and it was wonderful, fresh and delicious. Our room was large and overlooking the marina from the balcony. It was beautifully decorated, spotless and the bed was so very comfortable. The only drawbacks were the wifi was intermittent and the TV was a little... More

We were impressed from the moment we stepped in the door. Robert welcomed us as he checked us in. Our room was large and nicely decorated. We enjoyed the balcony and the view of the canal. Breakfast was also impressive with a lovely selection of cut fruit along with the usual continental options. It was great to be canal-side at... More

We had visited Lewes back in August and had an awful time (see review for the Sleep Inn), but visited Lewes proper a lot and wanted to come back in fall. So glad we did. This is the absolute best place in town! Cannot ask for better location - on the right side of the bridge so all you do... More

From the extravagant but tasteful continental breakfast, to the extreme privacy The Inn offers, this property hits a home run. The Inn is decorated by a master's hands to ensure each guest truly knows they are seeing something special. The Harbor Master rooms are spacious and offer grand views of the canal, yachts, and the beautiful scenery that the first... More

A Great Location. Thought it overpriced for accommodations. Realizing this is a Historic Town and Tourist Attraction I expect rooms to be pricey. I also expect more ambiance on the interior. Here you are paying for the location. Rooms above and next door were anything but sound proof. The easily accessible walk along the inlet is a pleasure.
