"First time visit"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
We found the Inn to be very clean, with very friendly staff. The room was large and comfy, TV worked fine, refrig was very large for a motel room, shower was quite adequate, altho' the room itself was very small. Our two complaints, if we can call them that: 1) a rug is needed for the sliding door so that the dirt doesn't get brought in with every trip to the car and 2) some type of shelf is needed at the sink area for keeping toiletries on. I had to keep mine on top of the microwave and my husband kept his on the sink. A small shelf between sink and wall would be helpful. We would definitely stay there again.

"During my search for a hotel in Cape Cod, my hair started going grey very quickly. Each time I found a hotel, either the prices were through the roof or the hotel was a complete dump. I accidentally called you when I thought I was calling a hotel in the Cape Cod area. It was the best mistake I could have ever made! You took down all the details and specifications that I needed and THE VERY NEXT DAY I had a list of hotels that met my requirements." A.C. - Cape Cod, MA
