This was our second stay at the Inn. We were celebrating our friends' birthdays. The staff are helpful, friendly and accommodating. The rooms are comfortable and clean. The pool is large and there are plenty of chairs and umbrellas if you want shade. We love the sitting areas and especially, the fire pit. This is a great value for the... More

We stayed at the Inn for a recent long weekend. No surprises here. Very dependable and friendly establishment. Beds were very comfortable but my wife likes to bring her own pillow. I was happy with what was provided. Located a short drive from West Dennis beach made it very convenient. We stayed with our extended family, including our one year... More

Me and my family stayed 4 nights at Cape Cod, Inn at Swann River. The room was clean and beds were big and comfy. In the back of the motel there is a nice green area, several places to sit and there is also a grill. The pool is rather big and plenty of chairs around it. There is a... More

We stayed here for July 4th weekend. I wasn't sure what to expect, and was pleasantly surprised. After having stayed at a few different motels in the West Dennis/Dennisport area, I was not impressed. The Inn at Swan River bucked the trend. The room, while not large, was a decent size. The bed was fantastic. It was very comfortable to... More

Stayed here over the Independence Day weekend. Prices were almost double the normal rate, but had the last minute wish to travel to Cape Cod. Place is very basic. I'd call it a motel, and not a hotel. Staff is only at the desk from 9am to 9pm. Wanted to move from first floor to ground floor, but staff quickly... More

I am very sorry to hear that your stay at the Inn was just "ok". I do apologize that we were not able to accommodate you to the first floor as our Inn was booked for the Friday portion of your stay. I wish that the pool entrance issue and air conditioner issue was brought to our attention. Our staff... More

I cannot think of a better place to stay on Cape Cod than the Inn at Swan River. The rooms are super clean and comfortable. That mattress! Ooolala. Spacious rooms with amenities to make an overnight or weeklong+ stay perfect. The proximity to beaches, culture, and nature is perfect being mid-Cape. I stay in every season because the Cape has...

We recently stayed here for a week during our visit to Cape Cod. It was perfect. We at first had a double queen room, but our fridge stopped working, so they offered to move us to another room. Both rooms were great. The second room was just a king size bed, (we only needed one bed), and was very spacious.... More

Stayed through Travel Adventures Network. The service was top notch, we were treated like royalty. The facility was extremely comfortable and the staff were absolutely the best! Close to anything you could need. Made our vacation one of our most enjoyable. You won't find better service and friendly, helpful folks anywhere. Thank you so much for a great stay!

First time out on the Cape and it was during the off season. The inn was comfortabe, clean, and homey. The staff were incredibly accommodating and informative. The area around the inn was very nice. Though many of the "things to do" are closed until May-ish, there are a lot of nice little eateries and such around. The staff also... More

Typical American Inn with outdoor pool and the option to make your own barbecue outside! We had a quiet room with all you need to stay some days. The breakfast place next door and also for dinner there are some places around.
