We were on the Cape for July weekend wedding and decided to stretch our time a few nights. The Holden Inn was a great spot. We stayed in the Lodge and went back to a simpler time. Nice and quiet and the shared bath option was not a problem with the outdoor showers and great porch to have coffee in... More

Hello to all reviewers-it has given me almost 2 weeks to give you a decent and honest response to this reviewer. Your introduction is quite whitty to say the least. It is a shame that you and your wife could not enjoy your stay at the Inn and Wellfleet as many others have, but instead found fault and attacked anything... More

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

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.

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
