We had fun dancing in the parking lot the 2 nights we stayed. We enjoyed the food, the pool, everything! Good location: close to downtown Hyannis, nearby beaches.

This is the third year my husband and I have gone to the Cape and each year we stay at the Tidewater. The staff are friendly and very helpful and we have never had a problem there. Love it!

Though the Tidewater is an old favorite, this is my first review. I have been to the Tidewater once or twice per year over the past several years, and plan to keep returning! I notice small improvements every year, but what remains is friendly staff, excellent grounds, great recreation opportunities, and tasty breakfasts! This year I brought my laptop and... More

I stay at the Tidewater twice a year for a few days. Great value in the off season. Rooms are very clean, and the service is great. Nice hot tub and pool. I am handicapped and they give me a room on the first floor close to the hot tub. Very accomodating. The location is close to Hyannis and some... More

This Inn is in violation of so many codes that it's scary!! They have no handicap parking, ramps, rooms or consideration!! I travel with a service animal and they couldn't have been more rude!! The room was hot, the mattresses were like boards and when I went to check out after one very long miserable night I was told that... More

I can't say enough about how great the staff was but this motel really needs updating. First, you have a musty smell in the rooms, then the bedspreads were something from 1970's. The mattresses were very uncomfortable also. They do have nice pools but the outdoor pool has little stones all around it which makes walking around the pool impossible... More

I brought my three young daughters for a quick overnight stay on the cape in mid September. My kids are all under the age of 6, one an infant. We arrived earlier than expected after receiving great directions from the hotel's manager. They were quick to accomodate our early check in and the room was clean and welcoming. The indoor... More

My boyfriend and I stayed in one of the "whirlpool suites." The room was ok. Very outdated. The "whirlpool" was not good. The jets had no pressure to them so it was basically a big bath tub. Not worth the extra money. There was a DVD player in the room and the Guest Book said there were rentals at the... More

Owner states that "I understand that we have to be careful, but I think all this hype was premature. This traditionally for us is a sellout weekend." Is this really where you want to take your family? What shortcuts is this guy taking?
