“Great Place to Stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

We have never been to Cape Cod before and we weren't sure where to stay. After searching Trip Advisor, we found the Escape Inn and we were so glad we did! As soon as we walked in, Mike and Holly greeted us and offered any assistance we needed on what we wanted to do that evening. The room we stayed in was brightly/cheerfully painted and was completely newly renovated. The hardwood floors, bathroom and linens were immaculately clean! The room was just enough space for two, the bed was comfortable and the shower was great! The pool area as well as the pool itself were also perfectly clean. You can tell that the owners take pride in their property and this emanated in all that they did. The lobby and continental breakfast location was also spotless, adorably arranged and perfect! Finally, the Inn is located right next door to the Cape Cod Creamery...which is the best ice cream parlor on the Cape!

We were so happy being at the Escape Inn and definitely recommend it to others!!! It's a little gem on Route 28, great value!!!

The entire motel is undergoing renovation. The rooms that are completed are beautiful. With hardwood floors, bright paint, and all white linens, The Escape Inn has clean and very updated look. The lobby/breakfast room has the same pleasant look. The owners are friendly and very interested in the feedback from guests. With good dinner recommendations, helpful directions, and great accommodations, our stay at The Escape Inn was excellent.

We had an excellent trip to Cape Cod and The Escape Inn during the July 4th weekend. The Inn was clean and as my wife put it "soooo cute." The continental breakfast was enough to get our day started. The location is great, a short drive to the beach and restaurants, and next door to the Cape's best ice cream parlor.

Our family of 4 stayed 3 nights at the Escape Inn the 1st week of july.
I booked this hotel based on reviews alone, and was not disappointed. The rooms were big & clean, with very comfortable beds. Linen was spotless...
The complimentary continental breakfast was simple but adequate for my liking.
Holly and Michael, the hosts, were incredibly helpful in giving us daily advice on towns /sites / places to visit.
I truly felt like I was a guest in their home.
Thank you both for a great stay, and Holly, your blueberries were awesome! ;)

I travel all over the globe, and Michael & Holly's place ranks amongst the best for value, cleanliness, service and hospitality. Great location and convenient to everything at the Cape! Given the business July 4th weekend, they couldn't have made us feel any more welcome!

We spent three nights here in June and were very happy we did! Rooms were very clean and everything was new. The owners Mike and Holly couldn't have been more helpful when we asked for advice on ferries and local attractions.
Lots to do in the area, restaurants were all great! We would highly recommend The Escape Inn to anyone planning to visit the area...you won't be disappointed!

Our family stayed at The Escape Inn for 4 nights in June 2013 and it exceeded both our expectations and past experience of motels.

It's located in South Yarmouth, a perfect central location for exploring the length of the cape. From Province Town at the top of the cape to Woods Hole (for Marthas  Vineyard ferry), the Escape is only a hour away at most.

The rooms were well equipped with free wifi, hair dryer, soap, shampoo, moisturiser, ironing board & iron, bathroom & pool towels, air conditioning and large plasma TV. Our room was spotlessly clean with new white bedding and towels, and it was cleaned daily (unless you use the do not disturb sign). More hotel than motel.

They also have a decent sized pool with sun loungers, tables and garden area that is also kept very clean. It's well fenced off so is both private and safe if you have younger kids that you would want kept away without supervision.You also get a continental breakfast as part of the package including a choice of cereals, fresh fruit, breads and rolls. I recommend the toasted fruit loaf and great coffee.

But best of all is the owners, Michael and Holly.  What ever your plans it's worth having a chat with them. They'll keep you right with their local knowledge and on more than one occassion gave us suggestions that enhanced our experience of the cape.

Highly recommended.
