I enjoy walking on the beach in cool fall weather, and this hotel is the perfect place to stay. Lewes is a very attractive town. The room I used (307) did not have a water view, but it did have a large balcony overlooking some old and interesting buildings in the town of Lewes. The room was very comfortable, well...

This was our second visit to the Inn at Canal Square. We had a great time. The fresh flowers in the lobby are just one example of the extra effort the staff at the Inn makes to insure their guests enjoy their stay. The breakfast was delicious and offered a variety of foods. I'm counting the days until my next...

From the moment of check in to check out, everything was perfect. The management were delightful and most friendly, the Inn was exceptionally clean, the balcony facing the canal was gorgeous and most picturesque, the room was spacious, free wi-fi and the buffet was delicious and plentiful. You could park the car and walk through the town of Lewes day...

The place seemed quaint, bizarre mix of Chinese and coastal decor tucked away in this hotel overlooking boats/water. Room seemed quite lovely in terms of being spacious (table and chairs, couch) and clean (well, there was one hair in the tub which you wouldn't see from peering in from outside the tub, but really the bathroom and bedroom were clean)....

Had never been to Lewes and we were concerned about not staying closer to the beach, until we discovered that there are really no places to stay right on the water, especially not upon late notice. We put this trip together very last minute. Found rooms at the Inn at Canal Square. We were very impressed, although this place was...

We visited Lewes for a quick side trip from D.C. The rooms were spacious and very clean. We had a lovely view of the canal from our balcony. Breakfast was excellent. Location was very convenient to everything. The service was unbelievably accommodating. I don't think I have ever dealt with a better staff! My only disappointment was that we were...

We had stayed at other places in Lewes and decided to try "The Inn" this time; we will never stay anywhere else! Perfect location, wonderful amenities (umbrellas when it rained, beach chairs and towels for a day at the beach, on site bar and restaurant <but independently owned>, complimentary continental breakfast, "bottomless" chocolate mint dish in the lobby, and more),...

We had never been to Lewes and I chose this hotel because of other peoples reviews on trip advisor.

We wanted to get away for a night and head to the shore. Since it was last minute, we were delighted to be able to get accommodations the same day. We were assigned a room on the 3rd floor and we could see the water. The description of being able to see the canal is a little misleading as there...
