, this hotel can at best be described as adequate . Have stayed here on multiple occasions over the years and every time it looks a little more tired . Desperately needs a makeover . Restaurant has dropped from okay to appalling .

We recently held our daughter's 10th birthday party at the JCI. We found the experience to be fun, easy and delightful for our group. The pool was fun and attended to by two life-guards. Kristi at the front desk staff was professional, friendly and prepared. She was great and coordinated the welcome / birthday presents, ensured our pizzas were ordered... More

Stayed here for 2 nights over a weekend in April; Pros; Location, location, location. This hotel has a great location within walking distance to the waterfront with dining, & shopping options, and Plymouth Rock, and the Mayflower ship reproduction. Also, about a 10 minute drive to Plymouth Plantation. The bathrooms seemed to have been recently updated, and were overall clean.... More

The hotel is a bit old fashioned but reasonably clean. The room was large and ok for a short stay, but we didn't find the staff very friendly-no-one looked up from the front desk or spoke when we were coming or going, and the bar staff were uncommunicative. The staff in the hearth and kettle restaurant were friendlier but the... More

We stayed here and it was a great stay. The pool is awesome! Some cool places to check out. Bit of a drive to Boston and salem but worth the drive. Not real pricey great package deals! Look forward to staying again Carrie

Friendly and welcoming staff - thanks to Karen and Angela! Rooms were comfortable and clean, loved the bed and pillows. Next time, we have to try out the pool! Literally my only critique is for the trash cans to be a bit bigger - my boyfriend and I felt awful leaving trash next to it when we left!

We had a last minute stay at the John Carver Inn a few nights ago. My husband and I were celebrating our anniversary when we decided against our original plans. We booked a suite at the Inn and were thrilled we changed our plans. The staff at the front desk were warm and accomodating. Both Karen and Angela went out... More

We recently spent one night at the John Carver. I agree with previous reviewers about the staff - all were extremely helpful. In our opinion, the style of the decor is a little dated and would perhaps benefit from modernization. In the bedrooms, quilts and sheets would be nice than blankets and sheets. The typed up information note was creased... More

Dear McWebb, Thank you for your review of our property. It is always nice to hear about how helpful our staff is to the guest. We do try to offer something different for all of our guest staying at the Inn and at times that means that some spaces will be different as we grow. The Pilgrim Cove pool and... More

Angela, Matt and Lori at the desk are great. Matt and Angela took care of a situation I had. Both were attentive and reassuring. When I checked out, I had forgotten to show my frequent guest card (I was rushing). After doing some things around town I went to the hotel restaurant for lunch. Lori was walking by and stopped....
