Traditional decor with high quality amenities (the linens, bathrobes, Toto toilets, bath products, good selection of newspapers in the breakfast room, copious fresh flowers in the lobby along with a beautiful Xmas tree) -- you feel a personal touch without kitsch. The staff are wonderful -- everyone warm, friendly & helpful. Ron at the front desk switched the members of...

We stayed here for the weekend of the Lewes Christmas Parade and holiday celebration. The staff was very friendly, courteous and overly helpful. The inn was very clean. Our room was also clean, well apportioned and larger than most of this style. The European style breakfast was more than adequate to start our day. Hopefully, we can return next year...

Found this hotel on-line, and I must say, it was a great find! When I made the reservation, I had mentioned we would be celebrating our 12th wedding anniversary on the Saturday. Was asked if I'd like a bottle of champagne in the room. Asked the charge, and was told it would be complimentary. How nice!! They had me there!...

The Inn is very quiet partly because the rooms are only on one side of the hallway facing the canal. Nice room with balcony with canal view. Good toiletry products in bathroom. Very comfortable bed, sofa, two chairs, a desk and two more chairs, TV, bar, you get the idea. A few feet from shops and restaurants. Short drive to...

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!
