“Enjoyed our stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2012

The Inn is quiet, quaint and well maintained. We had a lovely stay and our room overlooked the canal. Our room was very large with a spacious balcony. They also served a lovely breakfast. We enjoyed the surrounding shopping and dining. I would highly recommend this hotel.

Only spent one night there this week. Weather was just tooo hot. But we will be back. The inn is beautiful, clean, well maintained, and quiet. The family next door to us apologized for their little one's crying during the night. We never heard it. Very nice views from the harborview rooms.

Lewes is a quiet retreat. Some very good restaurants near by. Cape Henlopen beach is 5 mins away. The Lewes municipal beach is a good option for small children. Rehoboth and its great dining scene is 10 mins down the road.

Our beach splurges in the past have been the Boardwalk Plaza. The Inn has now taken over that spot.

Room Tip: Harbor view rooms. We had room 304.

This quaint hotel is located right along the canal and most rooms have views of the water. My sister and I stayed in room 404. We were quite pleased with the size of the room and spacious balcony.
Watching the boats come in at night, and seeing the sunset from the balcony, was so relaxing. A bonus was the continental breakfast in the morning with excellent coffee!
Free WiFi in rooms, elevator access for higher floors, and comfortable mattresses led to a good night's sleep!
Finally, the entire staff, from housekeeping to the front desk, were always friendly and attentive. Rooms were very clean, and serviced well.
We would not hesitate to stay here on our next visit to Lewes.

Stayed over for a long weekend, great sprawling location right off the main street, right along the inlet. Perfect for couples and those who appreciate the quaint comforts of a bed and breakfast, on the larger scale of a hotel (and no awkward sharing breakfast conversations!). Breakfast was ample--large fruit spread, yogurts, bagels, breads, cereals etc The room was spacious and included a sitting area and a patio overlooking the water, very comfortable bed. Just one block from the main restaurants and town and about a 20 minute walk to the beach. A little pricey but would absolutely stay again, well worth it for a relaxing weekend!

This hotel, adjacent to Lewes downtown strip, has around 30 rooms tucked into a two buildings overlooking a little courtyard. The gentleman at the front desk was very pleasant. We enjoyed a buffet breakfast in the sunny downstairs breakfast room. Our room was not so special but plenty nice enough.
