We stayed one night in Lewes and chose the Inn at Canal Square. The location was great! Shops and restaurants are all walking distance. Our room was very nicely furnished and clean. The bathroom was a bit small but up to date fixtures. The staff were all nice and the grounds were pretty. However, they did not provide an 'elaborate... More

We stayed in both Luxury Cottage Suites and never wanted to leave! Both rooms are large and beautiful, with great views, lots of room, and tasteful decor. One has a screened in porch, while the other has a glass sitting room, and both are connected by a small porch overlooking the canal. I recommend the one with the screened in... More

Pleasant stay. Well maintained facility. Nice breakfast. Only negative was the grumpy receptionist. Tip: Do NOT use the taxi service that the hotel recommends (city cab). Taxi showed up 40 minutes late and we missed the wedding reception that we were in town to attend.

My husband and I stayed here for one night over 4th July weekend. They were kind enough to accommodate a one night stay, even though there was a minimum stay for holiday weekends(always worth calling even if the website says no!) We paid alot for the room as a result but it is well situated right in town, has lovely... More

Staff was very nice and the rooms Here well maintained. I will stay here agian. The Inn is close to many places, so you don't need a car to explore the town. Which is better because parking is limited in town.

This was our second year at The Inn at Canal Square and we were not disappointed. The Inn is located perfectly near the downtown and the many restaurants.
