Small 4 story hotel in the heart of Lewes. Easy walking to shops and resturants and historic sites. Breakfast included. Also meeting rooms are well lighted and comfortable. The staff was exceedingly helpful. There is an on-site massage therapist who was excellent. Some rooms have an adjacent sitting room. There is an exercise room as well. Parking is provided and...

We recently stayed at this lovely hotel when we took an early evening ferry from Cape May and wanted to have a destination in town once we were off the ferry. Found the hotel listed in a AAA book and called to make a quick reservation. From the phone call on, our experiences with this hotel were wonderful. Our room... More

My partner and I recently returned for a one-night getaway at the Inn at Canal Square and found it to be as great as we'd remembered. The staff are extremely friendly and the inn itself is very comfortable and conveniently located within walking distance of the shops and restaurants in Lewes. Our room had a balcony and beautiful view of... More

My husband and I wanted to get away from it all and made a reservation at the Inn at Canal Square in Lewes, Delaware. What a great choice! The king courtyard room we stayed in was beautiful. The people at the front desk went out of their way to make our stay wonderful. The Inn is within walking distance to... More

New Year's Eve with friends at the Inn at Canal Square was all we had hoped it would be. We stayed in a two-bedroom suite brought food and wine and were treated to a cheese/fruit plate, turned on the gas fireplace, and just had a marvelous time. The kitchen is larger than the one I have at home! Although we... More

Stayed here the night before catching the ferry. Staff was very pleasant, room was well appointed. The view from the room was very nice. Stayed in a corner room on the third floor(302). My son was in room 303 and it was just as well appointed. It was January, so off season and very quiet. I recommend it to anyone... More

Great getaway location just by the canal. The area offers excellent walks and there are terrific restaurants nearby. We can't say enough about the outstanding service and the great complimentary breakfast.

Based on the Tripadvisor reviews, we chose to stay at the Inn before taking the morning Cape May - Lewes ferry. Found that it certainly deserved the excellent reviews -- location,ambeience, service, and Sunday breakfast. Delightful to park our car after a long drive and be able to walk to a large choice of restaurants. We liked it and the... More

I was there for a business seminar from Tuesday to Monday the last week of September. The weather was excellent. It was a great pleasure to run along the beach in the morning. Location of this hotel is very good. Very close to the center of the little town of Lewis. Very convenient to have a dinner to the large... More

to keep it from becoming too popular.Quaint, quiet, and somewhat quirky, this property has very well maintained grounds and a super location. We stayed 12 & 13 August on the 4th floor and had a large room with a balcony that overlooked the canal and the park. We didn't experience any of the problems Emery F related. The hotel is... More
