I like to go to Lewes once a month to enjoy the restaurants (Agave & Nectar Cafe favorites)and pleasant strolls through the village and along the canal. Have been staying at the Inn at Canal Square as their location is perfect. From my very first contact with Monica, who told me the staff at Inn at Canal Square was one... More

We had never been to Lewes and I chose this hotel because of other peoples reviews on trip advisor. I had several extensive conversations with Lou at the hotel, and he helped us to choose the best rooms for each of our family groups. We had ages 7 to 75. When we arrived, Lou shook my hand and greeted me... More

We wanted to get away for a night and head to the shore. Since it was last minute, we were delighted to be able to get accommodations the same day. We were assigned a room on the 3rd floor and we could see the water. The description of being able to see the canal is a little misleading as there... More

This hotel was quaint and lovely overall, but staying on an upper floor, facing the canal is highly recommended! Sitting on the balcony watching the boats sail in and out of the canal created a serene and beautiful setting. The continental breakfast was delicious. Lots of seasonal fresh fruit, unique pastries, nuts and cheeses and other treats that you don't... More

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
