We had a last minute, few days before Christmas and there was no ski-able snow on the East coast, so what better than to go to the beach! We usually keep it simple, as we spend most of our time outdoors. This time we decided to treat ourselves and booked two nights at the Inn at Canal Square. It was... More

We love staying at the Inn at Canal Square. Rooms are comfortable and clean, but the best part of our stay is always the staff. Lou and Monica are the greatest and go out of their way many times to ensure their guests have no need to want. Excellent restaurants nearby or the staff will make excellent suggestions for anywhere... More

Lovely room with a beautiful view of the canal; great service and attention to detail. A glass of wine on our balcony before dinner, and our morning coffee watching the sunrise the next morning… We'd go back in a heartbeat.

The Inn at Canal Square is Lewes. Mike, Monica, Lou and staff are always incredibly friendly and informative. I've stayed here many times, and I'm never even remotely disappointed. All accommodations here are elegantly-succinct and cozy. The beds are comfy. The hallways are sunny and ornate. The rooms are spacious, clean, and quiet. This seems to be "the place" where... More

It's been a while since my last Lewes visit, so I was really excited when a weekend opened for my companion and me. I was even more excited when we were able to reserve a room at the INN. Ted Becker's staff are wonderful. The room was delightful. The breakfast filling and tasty. Besides that, the INN is walking distance... More

Louis made our time at the Inn exceptional. He made sure we had the type of room we needed, and was very friendly and helpful throughout the whole booking and checkin process. All staff we encountered were very friendly. The room we had had all the amenities, spacious room and bathroom, lovely balcony. The breakfast is more than you'd expect... More

I enjoy walking on the beach in cool fall weather, and this hotel is the perfect place to stay. Lewes is a very attractive town. The room I used (307) did not have a water view, but it did have a large balcony overlooking some old and interesting buildings in the town of Lewes. The room was very comfortable, well... More

This was our second visit to the Inn at Canal Square. We had a great time. The fresh flowers in the lobby are just one example of the extra effort the staff at the Inn makes to insure their guests enjoy their stay. The breakfast was delicious and offered a variety of foods. I'm counting the days until my next... More

The management were delightful and most friendly, the Inn was exceptionally clean, the balcony facing the canal was gorgeous and most picturesque, the room was spacious, free wi-fi and the buffet was delicious and plentiful. You could park the car and walk through the town of Lewes day... More

The place seemed quaint, bizarre mix of Chinese and coastal decor tucked away in this hotel overlooking boats/water. Room seemed quite lovely in terms of being spacious (table and chairs, couch) and clean (well, there was one hair in the tub which you wouldn't see from peering in from outside the tub, but really the bathroom and bedroom were clean)....
