My wife and I based ourselves here while visiting the Cape Cod area. We found the inn a lovely bright and very clean place to stay. There are 2 floors and we stayed on the first floor. What hits you about this place is how clean and bright it is from the driveway to the rooms and the swimming pool.... More

They don't come much nicer than this fully renovated motel. The rooms have been decorated beautifully and in fact the whole complex has been renovated to a very high standard. The rooms are clean and spacious and smelt so lovely and clean. The breakfast in the reception area was sufficient, although not a lot of choice of cereals and no... More

Rooms are some of the cleanest I have ever experienced! Decorations make the room very cozy and inviting. Breakfast was a bonus. Mike and Holly made you feel at home and were very helpful with recommendations and directions. Will definitely return.

It is disappointing that only 5 stars can be awarded as this deserves more. We stayed 3 nights recently, booked as a result of the many positive reviews and were not disappointed.

My boyfriend and I recently stayed here and it was a really nice place. The owners were very friendly. The rooms were very clean and comfy. The location was great and had a lot around.

Michael and Holly are friendly and helpful. They gave us some great ideas regarding what to do and what to see during our short two day stay. Rooms were small but clean and comfortable. This is the great thing about inns that are run by the owners. Michael and Holly keep each room like their own home. Nice Cape Cod... More
