We stayed at this fancy Inn in Lewes De. for two nights. The room was large and very comfortable with a great balcony view of the canal. The staff were exceptional and the European breakfast was great. We’ll definitely stay there again next time we come

Centrally located, this is a quaint and charming venue, within walking distance of everything in downtown Lewes. Incredibly friendly and informative stafrf made the experience a pleasant one right from the start. We had a wonderful room on the top floor...dormered, with a great view of the water. Clean, bright, efficient...with nice breakfast also.

The central and charming location of the Inn makes up for many of its shortcomings but at $350 per night it should not have rooms with walls so thin that we could distinguish what our next-door neighbors were saying nor hear those in the room above doing what sounded like moving furniture. Noisy climate control, refrigerator and dehumidifier didn't help the situation. Maybe some of the rooms are quieter--it would be worth checking when you book. The hotel is very clean and the staff is gracious. We liked Harbor restaurant, which was steps away.

We stayed here pre-COVID and hope to return again soon. I'm never sure about charming places and how up-to-date the rooms will be. The beds were amazing! The town was great, quiet, friendly and a short driving distance to the beaches. We can't wait to visit again. This tops our list of getaways!

This was our first trip to Lewes. We wanted a quiet getaway for a few days for a change of scenery. Lewes and the Inn were perfect. The town is small and so much calmer than nearby beach towns. We were greeted by Carly on our arrival...she wore a mask but you could tell she was smiling the whole time! All the staff we interacted with were so friendly and thoughtful. We had a fourth floor room with a view of the canal. It was large, clean, and quiet. The days were cold and windy so we didn't spend time on the balcony but it looked so inviting. The inn is right in town and great shops, restaurants, and museums are an easy walk. There are many trails for walking and biking nearby. The inn is a cozy retreat and was a welcome change after a pandemic year!
