Cape Arundel is an amazing place to stay. We stayed in room 26 overlooking the ocean. The room was beautiful and spotless; the bed was one of the most comfortable I have ever slept in. Breakfast and dinner in the dining room overlooking the ocean (aptly named Ocean) was second to none. Took a long walk along Ocean Ave with... More

We have long admired the view at Cape Arundel Inn and finally decided to stay here on a recent trip. The ocean views from the front and east side of the Inn can't be beat. The newly redone lobby, lounge and restaurant are beautifully appointed. Too bad the restaurant food didn't live up to the the design aesthetics. The food... More

We join the Cape Arundel Inn early May in special and unplanned circumstances after a sudden great loss in our life. The location was very inspiring and relaxing. All people from staff were very warm and truly comprehensive. We could not have made a better choice and we felt lucky to breathe the salty air directly from our great room... More

Just stayed at the Inn for the first time for my wife's birthday. We got a terrific oceanfront room with a king bed, fireplace and balcony. Very comfortable and clean; the wifi could be sketchy at times but they are looking into it. The bathroom could use some more shelving but we managed fine. We had dinner at the Ocean... More

My family and I stayed at Cape Arundel Inn two weeks ago for my birthday. This beautiful inn is one of my favorite places in New England. The staff was so friendly and very helpful.

Overall it was a nice time except for flaws. Shades were difficult to work, no chair for desk, shower had no shelf (which meant products placed on sink) and floor got wet. Windows were drafty ( no one pulled down the storms), broken hair dryer( took forever to get one) and the front desk thought it was funny. Believe it... More

Living locally I have been to the dining room in prior years and loved every dinner I had. The visit this summer was very disappointing. NO PIANO, I couldn't believe it was replaced with a bar that faces a wall. The service was awful. I saw our drinks sitting at the bar for at least 15 minutes. I finally reminded... More

A little disappointed in the deletion of the piano from the dining room, now the bar seems to be the focus. Having eaten here several times in the past, we were a little surprised by the new nouveau menu and little portions. Miss the steak from previous visits and at least one traditional dessert on the menu. Although the service... More

We loved! our stay. What a wonderful Inn. Very clean, great food and drink. Best of all, very friendly and helpful staff! The first night we had cocktails by the fire in the lounge before dinner.
