Stay only one night, and had dinner. The food was so good and beautifully presented. The staff was lovely. The room I stayed in was directly above the lounge - note...if they have a band in the evening, it will be loud in that room. The staff warned me, but I paid no mind, but they were right. Very accommodating,... More

This great little inn has only a couple rooms and the only restaurant & bar in the old town. Having had a nice lunch there on a couple of occasions we were traveling to the area and decided to get a room with some character rather than staying at a typical motel. The place was old but the staff was... More

The website for this place is very deceiving. There is fresh paint (nice color choices), new bed linens, renovated bath,& beautiful view of the water but that is where the good part ends. It wasn't until after I pre-paid & checked in that I noticed a hidden sign that said in order to keep the historic ambience of the Inn... More

Extremely disappointing! We understand that historic often means old and worn, but the carpet looked like it hadn't been replaced in 20-30 years. it was dirty and threadbare. The floors beneath it were uneven and dangerous. Although the bed was nicely made up when we arrived, they didn't make the bed or give us fresh towels, even after we asked... More

On Memorial Day Monday after a wedding weekend in New Port, we headed out for a day/night on the coast before heading up to Boston on Tuesday. We drove into Mattapoisett thinking it was time to find a place to stay for the night. Came up on The Inn on Shipyard Park. While an older inn it was perfect for... More

This property changed hands in 2012. Reviews of previous establishment were great. However new management has some work to do. If you are looking for a bar with a nice view, this establishment is fine. If you are looking for overnight accommodations, you would do better to look elsewhere. Our door tag for new towels was ignored for more than... More

I recently stayed here while on business and would return tomorrow if I could for a relaxing vacation in this beautiful, quiet old village on a stunning harbor. The Inn combines modern amenities with Colonial charm and the pub gets 4 stars from me for the best crab cakes I've ever had and its attentive, friendly service. Only downside was... More
