The Escape Inn is a good motel experience. I liked the bright rooms with hardwood floors. It is a clean establishment with a flat screen. It does not have a fridge or a DVD player. The continental breakfast is good. This motel is not near the water but is close to business and great restaurants.

It was a clean, quaint & wonderful place. Every little detail was perfect. Breakfast was lovely. There's nothing that was missing and the hosts were very nice people. We would love to come visit again! Would recommend 100%! Even has a pool :)

Very good place to stay. Tea/coffee station is not in your room but in reception which closes at 10 pm. Breakfast included muffins, bagels, cake, orange juice, fresh fruit and cereals. Hosts are fully committed to ensuring that guests have a high quality stay. Room was spotless and attractive. South Yarmouth is in central Cape Cod so central for touring... More

If you're looking for a clean, attractive, friendly, convenient and very reasonably priced to stay in this area...look no further than the Escape Inn! We had been searching for properties online for a few days a we were planning a quick one-day escape of our own.

Michael and Holly have done a great job of renovating The Escape Inn. All rooms are tastefully done with a fine attention to workmanship and style. We had a great two nights there and they made all kinds of useful suggestions on things to do and places to go during our stay. A great place and great proprietors! Keith and... More

This was the most unique place we stayed at on our NE autumn road trip. It is in a good spot to enjoy the Cape Cod area without being in a place that feels like a tourist trap. Just a short drive to the tip of the cape with lots of scenery in between. Didn't get to see the beach... More

If you are looking for a clean relaxing place to lay your head, then this is a place you should consider. The place is spotless, with hardwood floors and friendly service. As others have said the owners have done a great job on this little gem.

Thank you so much to Holly and Michael for creating this great place to stay. Couldn't fault the accommodation, breakfast or hosts! There is even a pool to use if the weather suits. This is THE place to stay in Cape Cod.

Stayed here October 5th and 6th. Would definitely stay here again. A highlight of our 10-day road trip to New England! Holly and Michael, the owners, were perfect hosts. They have done a masterful job of updating what was an old motor court style motel. The blue and white color theme inside and out conveys a ‘beachy’ seacoast feel. Furniture... More
