I highly recommend the Escape Inn! It was way beyond my expectation for the price and location. It was my first visit. My first impression upon walking in to register was that it was so clean and new. Very Cape Cod feel to it. I later found out by talking to Michael that everything was new. They had renovated the...

I selected the inn because of the great reviews and reasonable price and was completely impressed! The room was clean and inviting with little extras like liquid hand soap and sleep masks and ear plugs! Have never seen that before. The inn has a bed and breakfast feel to it, with a beautiful lobby and wonderful continental breakfast, with hard... More

The owners are very friendly and helpful. The stay included a continental breakfast each morning, which was delicious and the breakfast area... More

My husband and I spent just one night at the conveniently-located, cozy comfortable Escape Inn last weekend. Don't let the "motel" look fool you. Room and bathroom spotless and comfortable, well-thought out to include everything we needed. Perfect continental breakfast even included hard-boiled eggs. Hope to return one day.

This was our second visit to the Escape Inn and we were thrilled to be back. The rooms are bright and well cared for and are meticulously clean(and I am rather picky). We cannot imagine staying anywhere else on the Cape. Michael and Holly are wonderful hosts and the location of the inn cannot be beat. Hopefully we will return... More

After reading reviews and looking for a place to stay for one night, prior to our weekly rental we booked 2 rooms. It was absolutely Perfect and immaculately clean and obviously well maintained. The room was extremely comfortable and the shower pressure was wonderful. The grounds are lovely and we enjoyed speaking with the owners. It is a place we... More

I stayed here one night for a wedding in South Yarmouth, and was very happy with my room! It was very cute (felt like I was in a nicely decorated room at someone's house). Bed was comfortable and had a nice TV along with complimentary wireless. Everything was extremely clean as well. The owners were very helpful with restaurants to... More
