We were attending a wedding in Lewes and stayed at the Inn at Canal Square. Aside from it's perfect location, everything about the Inn was exceptional. The front desk people were extraordinarily helpful, courteous and accommodating. The rooms are comfortable with understated elegance as are the public areas, even the hallways are tastefully appointed. Every morning a lovely continental breakfast...

If your looking to stay at a place with an exceptional location on the river and near the beach and right in the center of town; where all the staff goes out of the way to assist; where the room accommodations are impeccable; where you can drive to Rehoboth Beach and that circus and then go back to quiet and...

I doubt that there is a better choice in Lewes than the Inn at Canal Square. If you find yourself not leaving Lewes, there's a notable cemetery across the street. Meanwhile, the Inn is perfectly situated, comfortable, good value and with large rooms. A decent buffet breakfast is included. Ask for a room above the second floor with a view...

A lovely, charming Inn on the canal in Lewes! We stayed in a two story suite with an indoor and outdoor porch right on the canal! Full kitchen, washer and dryer, fireplace, a delightful European breakfast and very pleasant staff. Can't wait to return!

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.
