Walking into our 2nd floor room in the main building it smelled like clean fresh linens, the lights were on and a soft radio was playing. It was very welcoming. We had a door off to a small deck with two chairs and a table that over looked the property. The king size bed was very comfortable and the room... More

What you see in ALL the pictures is what we got. That cute white inn, we were street side, second floor, right corner unit, but odds are in high season you will not see it. I do not recall in my research seeing anywhere that the white inn part was added on to again and again, till now the cute... More

We stayed at the Wayside Inn for a wedding we recently attended in Chatham. It was a perfect spot to explore the town of Chatham, particularly since we were preoccupied with wedding activities as opposed to solely relaxing and vacationing on the Cape. It was certainly more affordable than the Chatham Bars Inn, which is a resort atmosphere as opposed... More

We stayed at the Chatham Wayside Inn for two nights in one of their higher-end rooms overlooking the park. The room had a nice gas fireplace -- very cozy. The room was clean and comfortable enough, although the decor was rather outdated. The bed could really have been better: the mattress was fairly thin and was quite hard/stiff; the head... More

If one would stay in Chatham, and at the Wayside Inn, it is a great location for day trips to Martha's Vineyard, Nantucket, and Provincetown. The Inn itself, used by us on Tauck tour, was wonderful. Had the honeymoon suite, after 57 years of marriage, it was nice to be recognized. Our room, 214, was fantastic, except for the shower.... More

Room was beautiful, bright and clean. Inn is lovely and located on Main Street in downtown Chatham. Extra treat was our patio opened to the town gazebo and Friday night was the Chamber of Commerce's band night (colorfully uniformed forty-piece band). Would definitely stay here again!

We just spent 5 days at The Wayside Inn. The inn itself is lovely and the location in the heart of downtown Chatham can't be beat. The room wasn't overly large but the bedding was really great! The restaurant, The Wild Goose was packed from lunchtime through until closing. The bar atmosphere was lively and fun and the outside seating... More

An excellent location. Truly, a walk to everything on Main Street in Chatham. The room choices were limited for a family of five but the one we got worked beautifully. Two queens and a pullout sofa. The room we were in, I believe they called it a suite, was surprisingly spacious. The bathroom and closet were around the corner from... More

If you like shopping and dining - this hotel is in the right location. It's located in the midst of the shopping and dining area. My room was in the back part of the building which was nice and quiet. The view, though (overlooking the parking lot) was not so stunning ! It did not have a balcony, either. For... More

...and the location is central to the town shopping and galleries. The restaurant is excellent and our room was light & airy. Our room had a door to open for a fresh air view out toward a golf course. It was light and comfortable.
