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!

I stayed at this Inn years ago and was not impressed then. We had to book a room for one night this last August 2014. the Inn needs an upgrade badly and rooms and grounds need to be refurbished. The bathroom was very old and run down. The heater in the bathroom looked filthy and painted over. The front door... More

We just finished our 2nd stay at Governor Pence inn (our extended family has always stayed there when they visit the Cape). Both times were a pleasant experience. They have set up bird feeders near the breakfast area (in a small floral oasis) so you can watch them while you eat your breakfast (great way to start the day). We... More

The Governor Prence Inn is a Wonderful place to just relax and just enjoy the ambviance of Beautiful Cape Cod. Per a conversation I had with the Front Desk Mgr, he recommended we visit Nauset Beach, which was about a five minute drive from the Inn. After reading up on Nauset Beach and spending an entire day there, we found... More

I have stayed on the cape probably around 15-17 times so far, and had always drove past the Governor Prence without giving it too much thought. Probably because of their dull color scheme and logo designs (if you are a manager & see this, consider freshening up your colors/logos). This year I needed a hotel room last minute for 2... More

This is a very clean and reasonably priced motel. The continental breakfast is fine but the coffee was not drinkable. The maid service was excellent and reliable and kept our rooms very clean for us. What was truly disappointing was that their wifi service sucked! It wasn't good in the room or in the lobby area. In today's day and... More

After we checked out of another place in Orleans which was VERY unsatisfactory, the staff at the Governor Prence not only took us in during the height of the season, but made an exception and gave us a room that was not one of their pet friendly rooms just to accommodate us. The Inn is quite old and dated but... More

It was an alright hotel for just sleeping and resting in. Stayed for two nights. Had a wonderful time. There was a great pool that had a deep end of nine feet. It also had a wonderful continental breakfast containing Eggo waffles, muffins, oatmeal, orange juice, and much more. If we come back to Massachusetts, we will consider staying again.
