We were pleasantly surprised when we stood at this hotel Aug 24 through Aug 27th. it was myself, Husband and almost 4 year old. If it wasn't for the front office Manager, Karen B. we would not of known about certain packages that the Inn offered. We wanted accommodations close to Edaville and also being near all Plymouth attractions and... More

Overall: For the price they charge I expected something much better. The whole hotel and the rooms were very run down and showing their age. Luggage is completely self-service, but they did have a lot of carts available. The room: There were stains on the carpets and it looked like they had done a "quick fix" bathroom renovation by sponge... More

Great location, good food, great pool, above average (though non-descript) rooms. Clean, convenient, and a pretty average price. Mini-fridge in every room and a hidden business center in the hotel, make it even better.

The location of this hotel is fantastic but: The elevators are not air conditioned....the a/c unit in the room is very noisy. The beds are way too soft. The only shelf in the bathtub/shower is a single mounted soap dish. There is no counter top space in the bathroom. There is no bellhop...baggage transport is self serve. Ugh.........

Restaurant has a real old New England feel (with great food), but I really love the newly renovated bar. Very modern decor, swanky. Great for groups. Bartender, Danielle, makes a mean Moscow Mule with cucumber vodka! A+

My family of 4 (my husband, two toddler sons, and myself) stayed here for one night in August. We reserved our room using the Edaville package which includded 2 tickets to Edaville, 2 breakfasts, and a really cute welcome bag (with a hat and train whistle). We were able to purchase additional tickets to Edaville at the front desk which... More

I am not one of those adults who likes to do kids activities. It's very hard for me to sit through a lot of the things that will entertain the kids, but the John Carver actually has something for them and for me. I just brought my laptop to the indoor pool and while they had the time of their... More

Based on the age of the property, I was expecting the John Carver Inn to show its age more than it does. Management has done a great job keeping the Inn up-to-date with modern amenitities (for example a quiet, working a/c unit) and lots of places to plug in today's electronics! The beds had updated bedding and linens. The staff... More

The kids loved the pool and water slide. It wasn't crowded so it was a bonus for the kids. The location is walking distance to the water front and attractions. The beds were a bit warn and sloped to the middle. The room was clean and we had no issues. Nice beer selections on tap to boot.
