Went to Hyannis for a day because my mother and I have always wanted to visit Cape Cod. Decided to stay at the Cape Cod Harbor House Inn because the outside looked cute and it looked as though it was in our price range. We went it and the reception/host was INCREDIBLY rude. The only time he was nice was when we were leaving! We were yelled at, scolded, and sarcastically spoken to during our stay there. My mother really didn't want to go into the office because he was so mean. It was really quite a horrible experience. Anyways, we went up to our room which was pretty okay sized. Needs some serious upgrading and the mattresses sink in the middle (bed was still pretty comfortable though). Bathroom and kitchenette were small, but functional.
Wireless was spotty or non existent. Breakfast was okay. Waffles, bagels, and oatmeal. Nothing big or grand.
In all honesty, there really wasn't all that much to do in Hyannis. Nice place, but it was mostly shops and restaurants. I saw everything in about 3 hours. The inn is waterfront, but there's no beach. Just a dock to hang out and it's not even that big. To get to a beach, you'd have to drive. Price of the inn was expensive for an "inn". Yes, it's waterfront, but only the main office is waterfront. The rooms don't face the water at all. So, I don't understand why a room is $125 a night (Oh, btw, the guy said that he gave us a $50 discount). So, you're telling me that it's normally $175 a night?? No...way...
The room was worth at a MAXIMUM of $90 a night. And that doesn't include the rude service. They'll need to discount more for that.
