“New Year's Surprise!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

A last minute booking for a wonderful couples retreat. Bringing in the New Year overlooking the quaint town of Lewes, sipping the hotel surprise gift bottle of bubbly, and enjoying the dropping of the illuminated anchor from the town's prize lightship, the Overfall, was an absolute delight. The Hotel staff is very welcoming and friendly. Once you cross the Hotel Blue threshold you get this great feeling about the place from its in-room cozy fireplace to its colorful, warm decor and comfortable bed. This is our third stay at this hotel and we highly recommend it to anyone who wants to get away from the rat race and enjoy some time together.

Room Tip: The front rooms provide you a view of the town. The rear rooms overlook trees and open space.

This is a quaint little hotel perfectly situated within walking distance of shops and the beach. The staff was nice and the room well aportioned and very clean. All rooms have queen size beds but they are VERY hard. I tossed and turned all night because I felt like I was sleeping on a board. I contemplated moving to the couch but there weren't extra blankets. Moving would have meant truly stealing the covers from my partner. I personally won't stay here again but it had nothing to do with the hotel, staff or location. I just need a bed that's less brick and more feather.

Hotel Blue does not disappoint--and this was our 5th annual (birthday) visit. The warm welcome, instant presentation of room keys, the glowing fire in the lobby fireplace and the always available fresh fruit/fresh HOT coffee set a relaxed vibe. Rooms are an absolute OASIS: large and clean, ours with a gas fireplace, comfortable seating area with a calming view/balcony, cozy sleeping alcove, and spa-like bathroom. A short walk (literally 5 minutes) across the channel to downtown Historic Lewes offers wonderful dining and shopping options. Or, take a 10 minute walk to the beach. Thanks HB for creating an inviting, comfortable and private hide-away! See you next year!

Room Tip: Rooms not overlooking canal are quieter. In-room microwave/fridge.

My son was married in Lewes last month. We chose Hotel Blue for accommodations for my family and friends for the weekend, and we were not disappointed! The hotel is lovely, the rooms are spacious and comfortable and the owners and staff were very friendly and helpful. The decor is colorful and funky with an art deco feel. The lobby and guest rooms were spotless. The hotel is located across the canal (short walk) from the charming little town of Lewes, which has great restaurants and shops. We had warm, sunny weather for the weekend, but with the cozy feel and fireplaces in every room, this could also be a great spot for a winter getaway.

We got married in DC and decided we wanted a close by escape for a few days after our wedding. This place was perfect! The owners and staff were friendly. They upgraded our room for free for a night. There was fresh fruit in the lobby. Our room was lovely with a beautiful view of the sunset (it was on the third floor, one of the corner rooms). It is close to the small downtown area and delicious restaurants. We look forward to returning on our anniversary. The only reason I give it four stars is because of how expensive it is. Seems like it is pretty standard in that area for August, but it is still super expensive.

This funky hotel was very clean, with fun furnishings and luxury amenities, and large comfortable suite rooms on the canal in Lewes.
THe location is perfect for walking into the cute town, seeing (and hearing) fishing boats and walking to the beach.
We were not aware that it was not staffed at the front desk 24/7..however they were very gracious, and left our room key in the lockbox out front. This was not the least bit of a problem, but it is critical to inform them if you are coming after 10 pm at night. THis was during October...I don't know what their hours are at different times of the year.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Hotel Blue. Our suite (tower suite) was large, nicely decorated, very comfortable and had a perfect view of the canal. The staff was helpful, professional and friendly. The hotel is on the other side of the canal from the main shopping and dining area so is also very quiet. It is a very short walk across the canal bridge to that area.

Room Tip: There are rooms with and without views of the canal. We preferred one with.
