I have lived on Cape Cod for 47 years and this is my review ! If your lucky enough to stay at The Holden Inn you are in for a treat, keep in mind if you want the ultimate Cape Cod experience surrounded by harbors, white sand beaches and restaurants within biking distance or a short walk then you have...

A friend and I stayed at the Holden Inn mid June 2014, and were disappointed. We had a two bedroom suite. My bedroom had a bad smell and wasn't very clean. The shared bathroom was not clean, and worst of all the bathtub would not drain properly. We left a night early due to this problem, as on our second... More

Some people should never go to an old New England Inn as for a building's age-175 years old may have a different smell which does not mean it is dirty. We are known for our cleanliness and in fact the bathroom was just repainted so how could it be dirty. As for the tub-the drain worked perfectly-the claw foot tub... More

My wife and I started our summer with another stay at the Holden Inn Memorial Day weekend and were extremely pleased as usual. A new offering this year is complementary coffee in the morning on the front porch of the Inn. A cup of coffee while stting in a rocking chair on the picturesqe porch is a great way to... More

Our idea was to go to Wellfleet, invite a few family members & select friends (we were 12 in total) and get married. We wanted low key and congenial. We wanted hands-off. We wanted privacy and consideration. We got it all at the Holden Inn. This is a New England inn, people, it isn't a boutique hotel or a themed... More

We have stayed here twice: once in room 4 in the Summer, and most recently in room 3. I have three problems with this place, two of which are easily fixed by management: 1. There are steep and narrow stairs to the second floor of the main building (rooms 2, 3, and 4). The treads on those stairs are very... More

The Holden Inn is a special place. My girlfriend and I stayed there over Memorial Day weekend and had a wonderful visit. I have spent every summer of my life in Wellfleet, but rather than stay at my family's cottage, we decided to hide away at the Holden Inn to create our own memories and experience of Wellfleet (aka the...

This B&B could do a great job. However, the reality is the place is tired. From our arrival the staff barely acknowledged us and we found our room in a just about ready state. The bedding had been changed but only some surfaces had recently been dusted and the floor was unhoovered. The private bathroom we paid extra for was... More

We stayed for one night. Read many reviews and they were basically accurate. Could be a fantastic place with old New England charm, but... We were greeted a bit lack luster, with limited communication from the gentleman on the front porch. Found the room with no problem, #8 at the cottage. Cute, with private bathroom, but no shower... No problem... More

We were grateful to be able to get a room at the last minute, and appreciated the prompt e-reply, but there was some confusion over the telephone because of language issues. Not convenient that they only accept a check for a deposit; no credit card, no PayPal. Certainly not a communicative staff; no idea what to do with our key... More
