My family stayed here last weekend(Sept 5-7, 2014) for a family function. The accommodations were perfect. The staff when we checked in couldn't have been any nicer and friendlier. The rooms were small, but just perfect for the weekend. The one thing that I thought was nice, was that the beds were as comfortable as they were. They also have... More

We stayed here for two nights this september. While the room was very clean, it was very outdated and I'm pretty sure we were in a pet friendly room based on the pretty bad smell and the barking dogs that woke us up in the morning. We did not have pets. The grounds are nice, pool is nice, location good,... More

Thanks CTKate72 for writing a review of your stay here. I'm glad to know that you found our rooms to be very clean-- It is unfortunate that we didn't meet your expectations for modernity-- although I know that many of our guests do appreciate the charm of an older,well kept property-- The reality of the economics of operating a seasonal...

We had our wedding guests stay at this motel. The staff made it easy for us. They knew our guests by name. The staff provided great resources in town for our guests. We would recommend a stay there for anyone.

We stayed at the Governor Prence Inn for 2 nights to be close to Provincetown. Since we had 2 dogs with us they put us in their pet friendly building which was wood view. Excellent location, right on the Cape Cod bike trail where u can bike, walk and jog. Rooms have private deck overlooking the bike trail and if... More

We have stayed at this motel yearly for about ten years. We have always been happy with everything at this lovely place. The grounds are wonderful. The location is perfect. It is right next to the bike path! The pool is very large and private and always pristinely clean. The proprietors are SO helpful and positive and always cheerful. The... More

Thanks travelcerfer for taking the time to write a very nice positive review of your latest visit here. We certainly appreciate it when a repeat guest compliments our staff on their great service.

Stayed at the Governor Prence Inn in July and found everything to our satisfaction. This was our first experience with them. The front desk staff was courteous and housecleaning did a wonderful job. Their breakfast could have been better but was sufficient. Muriel Southampton, MA

We came to Orleans for 4 days, 3 nights and had a great time at Governor Prence! Loved it. Great room, nice people and the grounds are a perfect place to hang out & have a cook out. We came down with two adults, two kids and our Lab. We look forward to returning next year. The Rodrigues

The Cape is a different kind of experience -- if you're looking for luxury, glitz, glamour, etc., that's not the Cape. The Cape is weatherbeaten, dated, nostalgic, never changing with the times and proud of it. If that's what you're looking for, the Governor Prence is a great spot for a Cape vacation. The location is perfect -- just off... More

My sister and I grew up loving Cape Cod and booked an evening at the Governor Prence as our central location. The staff was warm and inviting and the room was perfect! I would recommend this Inn to anyone wanting to stay on the Cape for their visit!
