“A hotel in a nice location that needs a massive update”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

I am afraid this a hotel, whose website is deceiving. The rooms look very nice, and the hotel looks lovely in a great setting.
Hyannis was lovely, however the hotel was not. The floorboards creaked, the bed and pillows were lumpy, the whole room smelt of damp.
We asked for a 1 King bed with Harborfront with jacuzzi, i think the best part was the jacuzzi. The harborfront view was more road and half a boat. So not worth the money.
This hotel needs some TLC and updating.
At least our room was in a corner away from people walking past the door.

Thank you for your recent review. This past winter, the hotel underwent extensive renovations including upgrades to a new luxury bedding and linen program. Every room received new top-of-the-line custom mattresses with pillow top and high-thread count linens. This new “white bed program” is the most fresh and comfortable sleeping experience available. Also, all of the terry was changed to an upscale offering. Finally, you can enjoy the resort this summer in the comfort of the new robes that will added to the guest rooms for this season. In addition to these upgrades, we have installed 42” flat screen HD televisions in all guest rooms and enhanced the wireless Internet serving the hotel to a faster state-of-the-art technology. I hope that you will choose to visit the Hyannis Harbor Hotel again so that you have the chance to experience all of these exciting upgrades and so that we can provide the level of service that you rightly expect. Of course, our location which can’t be improved remains unchanged with the exception of many new restaurants and other offerings that have been added to our harbor front neighborhood over the past off-season.

I recently took a trip with my mother and sister, and we took a chance at this hotel despite mixed review (July 2012). PLEASE do no overlook this hotel simply because a couple of bad reviews. The outside has been newly renovated, but the rooms do need a bit of a renovation. With that said, the room(s) were always clean and tidy , and the staff were very kind and friendly. Don't go in expecting a five star hotel, because this is not one but it is definitely up to a former hotel managers standards for it's rating. I would DEFINITELY go back!
A couple of extra pluses are the fact that you are central to everything in Hyannis, and there is even a restaurant next to the hotel, which has very good food, and also gives you a break from seafood-everything.
As for the overall rating of this hotel, I would rather say GOOD and not AVERAGE.

Room Tip: Get a room away from the pool, preferably on the upper level, even if there is no elevator, it was n...

We were pleasantly surprised by the HHH. Our room was large and clean. The staff was pleasant and there with extra towels and pillows in minutes. I loved that we could open our window and sliding door to a courtyard. The heating and cooling system worked perfectly. The hotel could use a makeover but for the rate we paid we were happy with it as is. We walked to Main Street for breakfast every day. The harbor is pretty and there are 3 nice restaurants to choose from. There are also ferries out the front door to Martha's Vineyard or Nantucket. We took a one hour cruise in the afternoon. You can't beat the location.

Thank you for being our guests at the Hyannis Harbor Hotel and writing such a great review. We are pleased to hear that our staff, our amenities, and the hotel itself met your expectations.

Adjacent to the Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard ferries, our harbor location makes us Hyannis’ most complete and convenient vacation destination, whether you are staying put to enjoy our extensive amenities or venturing out to explore the Cape and the Islands. Our guests enjoy the hotel’s amenities including our indoor and outdoor pools, outdoor fire pit, out door deck and recently renovated lobby with a business center workstation. In addition, the Blue Water Grille, our seasonal harborside restaurant and bar is a perfect choice for cocktails or dining.

The hotel got mixed reviews so I took a chance. So glad I did. In the center of everything the rooms were nice maybe a little dated but clean just what you might expect in a harbour town. Shopping is in walking distance. Ferries are at the front door. Staff was helpful and pleasant. Rates for off season normal. Will stay there again.

had stayed for 2 night's, a very basic Hotel no FNB outlets were operational in the Hotel, rooms very average, no way justified for the rate charged. Would not be visiting this property again for sure. Have your dinner early as nothing available near the Hotel post 9 PM .

This room had been booked for some time before our visit, but it was only the night before we arrived that I got round to reading the reviews on here. Some of them are very negative and whilst travelling there, plan B was being hatched.
We need not have worried, the room we were shown to was large, clean, decorated not too long ago and equipped with coffee maker, fridge and DVD player amongst other things. There was also a good view acrosss the bay. Whilst it was not the best room of out trip, it was nowhere near the worst.
The lack of the advertised restaurant was a pain, especially at breakfast if it was raining. The TV and intermittent wi-fi connection seemed unnecessarily complex.
The staff were cheerful and helpful pointing us to good places to eat and it made our trip to Nantucket that much better just having to cross the road from the ferry.
This review was really 3.5 out of 5, the restaurant would have lifted it. Do not believe all the negative things you read on here.

Big Motel at the Hyannis harbor. It's rather quiet there during the night time but not easy finding an open restaurant as soon as the holiday period has gone. Rooms are clean and spacious. Pool (in & out) available.
