I was nervous about staying here after reading these reviews but as I've learned, don't put your full and complete trust in other's opinions. First, most reviewers write reviews because of what they consider THE WORST EXPERIENCE they've had. Second, people will make promises to themselves to write a review about THE BEST EXPERIENCE they've had but usually forget. Third,... More

The Guestlodge in West Dennis is located along a road without any charm, but very practical is you come by car, far from the see and without any view. The room rented was very clean, modern and with all the minimum comfort you can find in this kind of accomodation, but very dark and at the ground floor with just... More

If you drive a motorcycle you will not be welcome at this hotel. I booked a double queen bed room for 229.00. I checked in left to eat and then after about 5 minutes after returning got a call from the owner berating me for taking up 2 parking spots even though I have 2 adults staying in my room.... More

Normally, I don't stay at budget hotels. But I made a last minute decision to stay here based on the price and last minute availability. I was truly impressed. It is a well-located intimate hotel with a clean, ample sized pool. The hotel was freshly painted, updated, and the rooms were very comfortable. The rooms include a small but adequate... More

My husband and me stayed there for 1 night (we needed 1 night to spend on Cape Cod to help our daughter to settle with 2 little kids in rented condo, so we wanted to be near by). Location was very good to get everywhere we needed at that time. We requested no-smoking room, but room on the 1st floor... More

The pictures posted on travel sites and the reviews of other customers do not represent the true nature of this hotel. The rooms are very small with an exposed concrete wall at the head. The odor when entering the room is overpowering and no amount of fresh air gets rid of it. The tv is old, small, and barely visible... More

We stayed at the Barnacle on a whim. We stopped there due to location and wanted to stay in the area longer. The location is what we needed, the price is what we needed, and they had parking for our boat and trailer. They were accommodating. They had a fridge for our cheese and drinks, all ready for our wine... More

Everything we needed and wanted. The room was clean, refrigerator larger than most (and clean), free wi-fi, we requested and received first floor, coffee and muffins each morning, surprisingly quiet inside and outside the rooms, pool was immaculate. We sat outside while my husband smoked his cigar (ALL non-smoking rooms which we love) and owner came to chat with us.... More

Stayed in August with kids and it was a great experience. Rooms are big, clean and the owner and staff are very nice. Location is great if you are not interested to be right on the beach with many shops and restaurants nearby. The value is amazing for this motel and what it offers. Located right on RT28 but still...

What I disliked about this place was how while I was checking in, the owner felt it was appropriate to berate me for other people's behavior for things that took place the night before which I had nothing to do with seeing as though I wasn't physically there. In fact, my stay was in jeopardy before I even arrived to... More
