I booked this hotel on short notice (paid in advance) as I would be arriving to the area late and leaving on the ferry early the next morning. I called ahead and told the receptionist I would be in around 1:00 AM: she was friendly and advised me to call the number on the door for check-in. We arrived at... More

My husband and I stayed at the Carleton when we got in too late for the last ferry. It was clean and at a much better price than the neighboring hotels. The hotel staff was also really helpful in checking us in as we got in after 11pm. It's not a place I want to stay for a week, but... More

This motel is very primitive, but also ill-maintained. The front door does not open/or close properly. The amenities are old and loud (air conditioner or bathroom fan). There is a TV set in the room, but power on/off button is just a hole. There are no basic conveniences (hair dryer or clothe hangers). The hotel is located on the main... More

If we could give zero out of 5 we would. This place is that awful. Of course, we certainly didn't have expectations it would be amazing. We just needed a no frills place to stay and didn't want to stay at other places that required a two-night minimum and the Holiday Inn was nearly $300 a night plus tax. Basically... More

I was trying to locate a place to stay before taking the ferry to the vineyard without breaking the bank. I found this to be cheaper and closer the last place I stayed. If I was staying for a week this would have been fine for me. The room although smelled a bit stale, other than that the bed and... More

My friend had booked this hotel through a Expedia type website...didn't do any research just assumed if it was in Falmouth it would be okay. The parking lot had broken down cars with tape for windows. People appeared to be living in some of the rooms with sheets tacked up for curtains. We were 'upgraded' to a nicer room. You... More

This is an older property that is functional and clean. Our room was a double (2 full beds). The beds were firm, but comfortable. There was a plastic cover over the mattress that made things a bit warm. There was little furniture in the room apart from the beds, TV, and microwave/refridge. The air conditioning was adequate. The bathroom was... More

We arrived tired from a day spent at the Vineyard --- Upon entering my smart mouthed teenager whispered --- Bates Motel. My husband hummed the theme from The Shining ---however, the front desk clerk was sweet as pie. Really. Nicely made beds with clean linens greeted us when we entered the room...the bathroom was so clean and white that it... More
