We ended up getting a room here at the last minute so we could extend our vacation. It was a clean room but it definitely showed its age. We were hardly in there so that was OK. We did use the pool, which needed to be cleaned, but it was still nice. We also at the continental breakfast where they... More

I just spent 5 days here and I enjoyed every minute of it. This is the first time I traveled with my Yorkie, Chloe, and after staying here, it won't be the last. I arrived at night and the room I was given was way back on the property with a view of the woods. There was no one else... More

We have been here before back in 2010. The staff is friendly and attentive. Reminds me of a throwback hotel from the 1970's when you were a kid going places, when you went places with your family, but absolutely spotless, clean hotel rooms at a great reasonable rate. In the 70's my mother use to bring Lysol with us and... More

Thanks for taking the time to write such an extensive and in depth review! One of the challenges of operating an outdoor pool is that 5 minutes after you finished cleaning it--it can appear to have not been done --even though it was just recently cleaned. We're glad to know that one of our many repeat guests enjoyed their stay... More

Enjoyed our 3-night stay. The staff was very pleasant, and our room was clean and comfortable. It's not a fancy place, but we knew that going in. It is pet friendly and within walking distance of shops and restaurants, and the direct access to the rail trail is great! I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking to stay in... More

I recently stayed several nights. While the building is showing age the accomodations were clean and very comfortable. The staff was friendly and helpful. The location is perfect - you can walk to everything. Breakfast is included and the pool was delightful. I think it was a great value.

I had a great weekend stay at the Governor Prence. Very conveniently located, walk to town and restaurants. Direct access to the bike trail was awesome! A clean, comfortable room, very comfy bed and quite contributed to a great night's sleep. Staff was friendly and helpful. Continental breakfast offered many carb choices (waffles, bagels, muffins, toast, donuts), hard boiled eggs,... More

The staff was very helpful and accommodating offering fantastic advice on the area. The rooms were very cleanly and spacious. The location was perfect to take advantage of all that Cape Cod has to offer. For the price, you can't beat the Governor Prence Inn.

This is the second time that we stayed at the Governor Prence Inn and we were just as happy the second time around. The room was clean, a nice size with a view of the pool in the back of the motel. A lovely, better than average breakfast was included and all the rooms had free Wi-Fi. It is centrally... More

When I was looking to book this trip I consulted Trip Advisor as always. I saw the reviews were mixed. Many folks don't like this place for various reasons. Well, the reviews that were bad were for things that really can't be helped on the cape. Yes, the facility is an older one. They have been in business over 40... More

I couldn't have said it better myself-- It's too bad that this web-site is dominated by fake "reviews" manufactured by "reputation managment companies" on behalf of their paying customers-- and dissatisfied,unhappy people who feel compelled to enumerate every flaw in everything which they encounter.

This is a very nice place to stay. Not so much the facility, although it was nice, clean, comfortable and very very dog friendly. But the staff is fantastic and they made the stay go from average to exceptional. Everyone from the manager to the maintenance man was helpful, extremely friendly and cheerful. It was like family but better because... More
