“We loved it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2009

Our stay began with a warm welcome on a chilly rainy day. The room was pleasantly comfortable, colorful, and cozy. We look forward to a future visit.

I was looking for a surprise weekend getaway for my wife and decided to try Lewes, which in itself was a great idea. I am glad that I chose this hotel to make it perfect! (Why is this hotel listed under B&B's?) Extremely professional staff, great amenities, perfectly relaxing and sensual room. At first I was put off by the fact that the town is on the other side of the canal from the town, but that turned out to be a plus for quiet and privacy. I wish we could have stayed longer. Another reviewer said that they felt like they had the hotel to themselves, and although we knew there were others in the hotel, we also had that completely private feeling during our stay.

To stay anywhere else in Lewes would be a shame. The decor and layout of the hotel are eyecatching and original. It felt as if we had the whole hotel to ourselves and being within walking distance of historic Lewes was a definate plus. The staff was extremely friendly. We can't wait to stay at Hotel Blue again!

What can I say...fantastic people, walking distance to great eateries such as "Agave," fantastic roof-top pool, great style in each room, great mattresses, first-rate toiletries. We stayed here in August and were planning on the Outer Banks for the weekend that is the subject of this review....we cancelled the Outer Banks reservations and came (back) here instead. If I am going to Lewes/Rehobeth/Bethany, this is where I stay. Period. - - - - Michael & Kelly

This is a unique property at the Delaware Beaches. Located in Lewes with wonderful restaurants nearby, close to Cape Henlopen State Park, the most pristine and natural beach in Delaware, and a courteous staff. The rooms are nicely appointed, with sophisticated contemporary design, balconies overlooking the canal, which has a nice amount of boat traffic. The gas fireplace is a nice touch. We look forward to returning.

Decided to plan a Labor Day weekend getaway a few days earlier to Rehoboth / Cape May and went about finding a hotel was lucky enough to find an open spot at Hotel Blue and was glad I need. Really neat hotel with a boutique feel that is well-kept and very convenient to the Cape May - Lewes ferry. We had planned to arrive late at night and front desk is only staffed until evening, so they arranged to leave the room key in a lock box for pickup. Very nice staff who were friendly and helpful.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2009

This was a quiet hotel near downtown Lewes. The rooms are quite well done, but some elements didn't work well. For instance the lighted basin didn't drain well, the doors in the bureau didn't shut all the way, and the door to the room rubbed on the carpet and didn't open easily. The room had a comfortable bed and flat screen TV. The bathroom was very large and had a separate room for the toilet. The shower was good. The room had a nice balcony overlooking the river and towards downtown Lewes. The room also had a wine cooler/fridge.

They add a 4% resort fee to your room charge which isn't a huge deal but the only resort amenity is a small rooftop pool with an adjacent fireplace and seating area. They do have a small fitness room like many hotels do.

Overall I'd stay here again if I was in Lewes but I wouldn't go out of my way to return.
