We were very pleasantly surprised. Check-in was smooth. The man at the front desk was very thorough and helpful. The room rate was very reasonable, and the hotel far exceeded our expectations. Everything was very clean and it was obvious that the rooms had been updated recently. WiFi worked with no issues. The view was beautiful from our room. The... More

Had a pleasant 2 night stay at a standard room with 2 double beds at Tidewater Inn. The room was spacious and a good size for 2 people and the beds were comfy. There was also a mini fridge in the room. It is not a high end hotel so there are no fancy frills and the rooms might be... More

I admit it was a few years ago (maybe 5?) since i stayed here but I'm catching up on some reviews. The lowdown: the room smelled terribly of must and mold. There were BLOOD STAINS on one of the pillows and when we reported it and left the pillow on the floor to be removed, housekeeping put it back on... More

We decided to stay here after our favorite Hampton Inn closed in nearby Hyannis hoping to save some money. We did save money, but I think we all decided the sacrifice was not worth it. Check-in went smoothly. I asked for a very quiet room, and inquired about the possibility of getting an upgraded room. I was told that I... More

You always wonder when you stay at a locally owned motel-hotel as to what you are going to get. Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose. In this case, a winner. While the room is a little behind the times (Magnavox TV with a tube? Lol), it is spotless, well maintained and clean. Room was quiet and the motel has both... More

My boyfriend and I booked the Tidewater Inn at the last minute and were pleasantly surprised by the nice experience. The room was perfectly adequate - not fancy, but a fine place to unwind after a day on the beach. We enjoyed the whirlpool in the room, and the refrigerator was handy. One of the highpoints of the stay was... More

First I have to say that the people at the front desk, reservations and housekeeping are wonderful. Very kind and helpful! I would give this hotel a 3.75 if a could. The room was a king in the back building which we really liked. It was clean and comfortable. It was a bit worn which is why I didn't give... More

First, let me just say how impressed I was by the owners responses on here and how they addressed each guest individually, not one canned response. The room was very clean and yes a little dated like others have said but it had a mini fridge a small 19 inch TV, the beds were comfortable, we had no complaints at... More

My husband and I stayed here the night of our wedding. It was very clean and even though we didn't check in until after the wedding someone came right down and let us into our room. The only thing was there was not a lot of parking. I had to park almost all the way across the lot because there... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review and choosing the Tidewater after your wedding! Congratulations and may you and your husband have a life full of love and friendship. Sorry about the parking situation but that happens on a sold out Saturday night when people arrive late. Hope to see you again when you visit the Cape.... More
