We stayed for a interview with one of the local companies. We arrived late and they don't staff after 11 p.m., but we were lucky enought to find the key drop and get into our room. The room was nicely decorated, comfortable bed and very clean. The view was nice of the canal, but not waterfront. Nice location if your... More

I am always delighted that the staff and innkeeper at the Inn at Canal Square provide service and accommodations that are even better than I remember. Mr. Becker, the innkeeper, is very involved with the community and you find that concern for others in the way he operates his Inn.

We travel from NC to the Northeast a few times a year and always look forward to a stop at the Inn at Canal Square. The rooms are huge, overlooking the water, and the beds are so comfy. The service is very personal. We stayed last week (we were the only ones there) and they brought our breakfast to our... More

Spent my wife's birthday here. It was close to the quaint downtown with nice views of the harbor and canal. A short drive to Henlopen State Beach for quiet walks and views of two lighthouses. I wouldn't upgrade to Harbormaster's room since the balcony is very small and when you sit on the chairs, the view is totally blocked.

I recently got married and decided to travel to Lewes to spend a quiet weekend with my new husband. The rooms are very clean and the breakfast was fair but while eating your breakfast you can hear the employees in the next room talking about what they did the night before. Our room had a view of the parking lot... More

We just came back from short vacation in Lewes where we stayed in the Inn in Canal Square in the room designated for dog owners. I completely agree with previous review published by 6tareg traveller who stayed in this hotel with dog. Few things to add: I travelled all around the world and never saw refrigerator placed in the bathroom... More

Right in the middle of historic Lewes, a small and walkable town. Our spacious queen room had balcony overlooking the canal. Large bath, dressing room and bedroom with comfortable sofa and chairs. Immaculate! Lovely breakfast - cereal, rolls, toast, yoghurt, hardboiled eggs, and fresh fruit. Parking right by entry. Plus winter discount. We loved this inn.
