A great place to stay with a very large pool you can swim in for 50 feet. Away from the road, quiet. Accommodating staff. Great beds, pillows . Breakfast was varied and extensive with many choices and real fruit:a better breakfast than in many of the chain hotels. A week long stay just after Labor Day: for us... affordable....

We called up the hotel late at night, desperate, and 30 min before arriving (last minute disaster elsewhere) and the attendant was terrific. This is a simple basic hotel which is just right. It is clean, in a PERFECT location-right by the bike track, with warm/helpful staff. The ample continental breakfast is in a sunny room and brings travelers together.... More

My husband and I chose to stay here 2 nights (Saturday-Monday) because it was conveniently located right next to the Cape Cod Rail Trail (you can hop right on it from the back of the garden). Being that it was off season, we felt like we were the only hotel guests. At check-in, the concierges were pleasant and helpful with... More

Spent years visiting/living on Cape Cod, and the Governor Prence was always there (built approx. 1950). Centrally located on the Cape allows reasonable traveling distance to both the lower and upper Cape. The rooms are older, of course, and do not have the 'flash' of newer properties. However, the rooms are clean, the pool is huge, the staff is very... More

My family stayed here last weekend(Sept 5-7, 2014) for a family function. The accommodations were perfect. The staff when we checked in couldn't have been any nicer and friendlier. The rooms were small, but just perfect for the weekend. The one thing that I thought was nice, was that the beds were as comfortable as they were. They also have... More

We stayed here for two nights this september. While the room was very clean, it was very outdated and I'm pretty sure we were in a pet friendly room based on the pretty bad smell and the barking dogs that woke us up in the morning. We did not have pets. The grounds are nice, pool is nice, location good,... More
