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... More

This hotel was quaint and lovely overall, but staying on an upper floor, facing the canal is highly recommended! Sitting on the balcony watching the boats sail in and out of the canal created a serene and beautiful setting. The continental breakfast was delicious. Lots of seasonal fresh fruit, unique pastries, nuts and cheeses and other treats that you don't... More

Lewes Delaware is a boutique town that has preserved its history going back to 1680. In this context, this hotel is a boutique gem with wonderful taste, excellent personnel, very nice rooms, and an excellent breakfast. We had a great view of the harbor from our room.

My son, husband and I stayed in a Harbormaster Room on the fourth floor for 4 nights. The room was spacious and extremely clean. Our room was very quiet, we could not tell anyone else was staying at the inn. All of the staff were super friendly and helpful. Breakfast is provided and you can also borrow beach chairs and...

My husband, daughter and myself recently stayed at this lovely inn. I loved the decor and relaxing atmosphere. I especially loved how clean our room and bathroom were. Breakfast was your basic continental style. Hoping to get the chance to stay here again, since we loved this little town.

The Inn is just a block off Main Street, an easy walk from the Inn. It also sits right at the canal and marina. They serve... More

I stayed there because I was accompanying friends who were celebrating their 60th anniversary. Relatives with a house nearby had planned a party lasting several days, so there were many family members and friends around. I should point out that only a few of us stayed at the Inn; most stayed with the party planners at their house. Anyway, my... More
