We stayed twice in the Lighthouse Inn. The surrounding is nice - just next to a nice beach and totally relaxing. The first time we had a nice (but old) room just opposite the main building - so combining the surrounding and the room we returned. The second time they gave us a room in the carriage house. The room... More

The Lighthouse Inn is one of the few restaurants I can call special and unique. The view is amazing - right on the water. Every waiter has a positive attitude and is accommodating. I recommend this place to everyone who visits Cape Cod.

The Lighthouse Inn is at the end of West Dennis Beach. It is an older hotel and I do agree the rooms need some updating. Some nicer sea pictures on the wall and newer carpeting or tile. The bathroom and linens were very clean and smelled very fresh. Our first impression was that it was small and some sound proofing... More

I might consider it again if I had a large extended family and we wanted a camping reunion on the ocean. Somewhat run down, no frills (not even a 4 cup coffee pot), lot of ants, needs updates everywhere, food is bad (my cod filet could not be cut because it was FROZEN). Most staff were unfriendly and seemed interested... More

The hotel has a nice location right on the beach. The property is quite large with both hotel rooms and cottages. We stayed in one of the hotel rooms so I cannot speak to the cottages. The hotel rooms are clean, but very small and badly in need of an update. The only thing that didn't look like it had... More

This has the same clean, campy feeling. Friendly and fast service, a beautiful view, mediocre food but served with such a nice attitude you leave with a good feeling. It is a family resort with lots of activities and food is just a part of it.

Couldn't have booked a better place to stay on the cape. Very central, easy day trips. Stayed in the breezeway rooms, loved it, spacious room with wood burning fireplace. Bathroom was very small. Breakfast in the Inn was amazing, everything you could ever want on the buffet and if there is something you would like can be ordered. Staff are... More

We were married at the Lighthouse Inn on June 28 2013. The Inn is beautiful and our wedding ceremony was perfect!! Bill at the Inn helped us plan our special day, he had lots of ideas an options for us. We had a very small ceremony followed by dinner with our guest (10 total). We had a few appetizers while...

Our group had a great time. We were there in September. Had the cottages and that just worked fine. Weather cooperated too. We were able to congregate in the living room of one of the cottages and we did not bother anyone around us. Service was good. They were there to answer questions and to help whenever needed. We had... More
