My wife and I booked one night at the Inn for a quick get-away, and we were not disappointed. The staff was very friendly and informative upon checking in, our room was spacious, comfortable, and had a nice balconey overlooking the canal, and breakfast the following morning was a grand spread of fresh fruits, baked goods, meat and cheese, hard-boiled...

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

We visited on a weekend in January, recommended by friends who were also staying there. We arrived an hour before the registration closed, but no worries, we were greeted pleasantly and check-in was simple. They even let us keep the car in the courtyard because it was cold and rainy. Our room was comfortable and nice, just what we were... More

We have stayed at the Inn several times in the past however this stay we noticed a few things that could be updated to improve the rooms. But first, the positive which is that the hotel is in a great location within easy walking distance of shops and restaurants. It's also about a twenty minute walk to the bay beach,... More

Located on the harbour, this quaint hotel offers comfortable, clean lodgings walking distance from downtown Lewes and a number of excellent restaurants. Our room had recently been renovated and was excellent. This was our 5th stay and if anything we found recent improvements had made our stay even more comfortable than on past occasions.

We have stayed there several times for one night at a time. It is consistent with clean comfortable rooms. Nor brand new but it works for us. The best part is you can walk anywhere you want to go in Lewes.

We spent 2 nights at the inn, staying with friends in the Captain's Quarters. It has two bedrooms with attached bathrooms on the upper level. The main level features a lovely kitchen with granite counter tops and new appliances. There is a living room with working fireplace and another bathroom with a washer and dryer. The owners furnished the Quarters... More

The inn is in a perfect location at Lewes. The beds are old with lumpy mattresses and the bedding is better in a mid level chain hotel. I woke up with backaches each day. The front desk staff is less than friendly. When I was checking out, she spent the entire time on the phone asking her friend what she... More

Thank you for choosing the INN at Canal Square and please note that the concerns you express are taken seriously. Your concern regarding the mattresses/bedding seems a bit unusual in that we replace all mattresses on a regular basis (not less than biannually). Had this concern been made known to us during your stay, I am certain we could have... More

We spent 3 days here. Very comfortable and nice room. Location is just great! Close to everything so you just walk around to shop and eat. View of the canal was wonderful, especially at night from the veranda. We found the staff to be extremely helpful.
