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

We were disappointed with the Inn. The rooms were very large but the decor was old and dated. The wifi was very slow. On the plus side, Check in staff were nice and the breakfast was good. However we booked the hotel thinking we would have a view of the water. That was not possible from the second floor. It... More

We wanted to visit Lewes before the actual tourist season began. We were able to get one of their last rooms available.. The furnishing was a little dated and dark. If you wish a canal view, you must request a canal front room in the building on the canal. The main building, even with balconies, have views only of the... More

We had an excellent stay here at the Inn. The individuals at front desk were acceptionally knowledgeable about the area and the activities we could partake in. Room was comfortable and immaculate with a view off Marina and surrounding flowering cherry trees. Lewes is a quaint and beautiful town! The breakfast provided was also wonderful. A spread of fresh fruits,... More

We stayed one night at the hotel (May 3rd,2015) and I loved it and would definitely stay again when I am in the area. The room was lovely, with a comfortable, king size bed, and very clean. We were on the 4th floor overlooking the canal, with a small balcony we sat out on, enjoying the view. The hotel robes... More

The Inn at Canal Square has a pet friendly room that we have been visiting for many years with our miniature dachshund. The bathroom has been updated nicely with granite counters and a nice walk in shower. Our room had a water view...steps away from Gilligan's and convenient to everything walkable Lewes has to offer. The tulips were in full... More
