“Quaint Inn & Great Location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2012

Stayed over for a long weekend, great sprawling location right off the main street, right along the inlet. Perfect for couples and those who appreciate the quaint comforts of a bed and breakfast, on the larger scale of a hotel (and no awkward sharing breakfast conversations!). Breakfast was ample--large fruit spread, yogurts, bagels, breads, cereals etc The room was spacious and included a sitting area and a patio overlooking the water, very comfortable bed. Just one block from the main restaurants and town and about a 20 minute walk to the beach. A little pricey but would absolutely stay again, well worth it for a relaxing weekend!

This hotel, adjacent to Lewes downtown strip, has around 30 rooms tucked into a two buildings overlooking a little courtyard. The gentleman at the front desk was very pleasant. We enjoyed a buffet breakfast in the sunny downstairs breakfast room. Our room was not so special but plenty nice enough.

Our room at the Inn was spacious, clean with a very nice view of the canal. The staff could not have been friendlier.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the canal

Lewes is a pleasant place, realtively quiet and none of the traffic and strip mall ambiance of nearby Rehoboth Beach. The Inn is well situated on the canal about 15-20 minute walk from the beach and a short drive to Cape Henlopen State Park, which has long stretches of wide Atlantic beaches and dunes. The rooms are well appointed, clean and comfortable, and the property itself is well tended and well designed. The included European continental breakfast is ample and served in a sunlight room off the courtyard. We came with our dog, who was well received, and there are great places for walks. There are lots of good restaurants nearby and Gilligans is on the property although separately run. Staff are friendly and knowledgable. Highly recommended. We'll be back.

Room Tip: For dog owners, only one room is available. It's right by the Gilligans terrace which could be a...

Slightly more than two hours from Washington D.C., the Inn a Canal Square in Lewes, Delaware is a nicely appointed get-away. You are located on the water in quiet Lewes. The Inn is always spotless, and the staff members are welcoming and helpful. The decorations are tasteful, with fresh flowers filling the lobby and common areas every day. A continental breakfast, in a soothing breakfast nook, decorated in shades of green and lemon yellow, is a very pleasant way to start your day.

The town retains a relaxed waterfront charm, unblemished by the commercialism farther north and south along the shoreline. Small apparel shops and intimate restaurants are within walking distance from your room. Check out Marsha’s, for a local artist whose silkscreen fleece apparel is featured in national catalogs.

Visit Café Azafran for a lovely wine and tapas menu, and don’t miss the fried oysters. You’ll overhear folks who are comfortably dressed, but planning their next trip to various places in Europe. If you can get in, try Agave Mexican Restaurant for some fresh approaches to food from south of our borders. Apparently, the trick is to leave your name and cell phone, wander the town, and be called for your table about an hour later. Well worth doing!

No matter the season, a stay with the Inn at Canal Square is a chance to unwind in style, and to savor some of the fun of waterfront leisure.
