We had a great time at the John Carver over February school break. I love all the activities they planned for the kids! Bingo @10am, Crafts @1pm, Cookie decorating @3pm, Magic show @6pm and Despicable Me movie @7:30pm. (Each night the entertainment and movie change). Bethany & Josie ran the bingo, the crafts & the cookie decorating and they were... More

I brought my family to the John Carver Inn over February Vacation. We had an fantastic time. As always the staff was friendly and helpful. The hotel even had extra activities planned for the kids during vacation week. They decorated cookies, saw a magic show, and a live animal show. They loved it! There was also a nightly movie shown...

My family (my husband, 5 year old son and me) went to the JC Inn for a night away. Our mini-trip was TRULY NEEDED after being cooped up in the house due to all of this insane snow. We surprised our son, telling him the good news as we pulled in the parking lot. Everything was great and we had... More

I was looking forward to taking the family to Plymouth for a Winter get away and even more excited after reading the reviews of the JCI. I was disappointed upon arrival that the parking situation was ridiculous and not emailed to guest ahead of time. We understand the unprecedented amount of snow that fell but the only way to find...

Room was spacious. Pool was clean and there were 2 life guards on duty. There are restaurants were on site which was great because we went during a snow storm. Wonderful experience for our family, would consider going back again in the near future.

We thought the staff was friendly at the front desk, rooms were clean and comfortable. The restaurant was pretty good too. The only negative thing I would say is that there needs to be better supervision in the pool area.

The John Carver Inn is a great place to stay. It's well within walking distance of the Plymouth Waterfront and many fine restaurants and shops all reasonably priced, as is the hotel itself. There's also a very fine restaurant and bar within the hotel. During the winter and spring they have dinner theaters with overnight packages that are fairly priced.... More

Myself, my sister and her four year old son booked one night at the John Carver Inn in Plymouth Massachusetts during the blizzard of 2015. On the second day of the blizzard it became clear that we were unable to leave the hotel because of the dangerous driving conditions. The hotel Front Desk Office Manager went well beyond her responsibilities... More
