What lovely interesting place, very friendly mgmt...helpful, great view of water, upgraded our room to honeymoon suite. Just had a great time in this centrally located hotel. Parking is simple, right off the road, across from a shopping center ifyou need to pick anything up.

We cannot thank Ed Maas, Josh, & the rest of the Orleans Inn staff enough for giving us the wedding reception of our dreams! We had a small and intimate winter reception at the Inn for about 40 people and it was better than we ever expected. The coziness and décor of the Inn was just perfect for our tastes.... More

This hotel is just beautiful, the whole hotel is full of old world New England charm, and the rooms are clean, comfortable, and well appointed. Best of all is the service and hospitality, I've never felt more welcome or that my stay mattered so much. Just stay here.

The Orleans Waterfront Inn is an easy turn off the Orleans rotary just off Route 6. Clean, Friendly staff, great food and the views of the water are excellent. Easily walk downtown for shopping. Great place for special events too.

We were greeted at the door by a very polite young lady who took us to the outside patio seating. Our server, Michael, a very young and polite man, was very knowledgable about the menu and had the personality to keep us engaged in the dining experience. Beautiful setting and good food and service - it just does not get... More

We had a lovely and spacious waterfront room (number 2) with a nice view of the water and also the windmill. We can't say enough about the hospitality of the staff. They... More

My husband and I stayed at the Inn to celebrate our wedding anniversary, and it was perfect. Our room had a very nice view of the water and the many different bird species hanging out there..enjoyed a glass of wine while watching blue herons, mergansers, and a Kingfisher from our room. We then headed down to the cozy (yet spacious)... More

I'm terrible with planning things in advance. The week of my 4 yr anniversary I began trying to plan something for the weekend. I called all around the cape and no one would give us a room for just one night. Not sure how I had missed the Orleans Inn at the beginning of my search, but I’m sure glad... More
