5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013 via mobile

We had no electricity in Dennisport and needed a place to stay. My sister found the Cape Cod Wishing Well calling places from Worcester. I'm glad she did! The place is adorable and the staff was fantastic, kind and accommodating. The Lighthouse Cafe next door was great for breakfast too. Thank you for having us and making us feel so comfortable.

PLace is ok, but what bothered us was that everything was done and run very cheaply. Never when you needed there was anybody in the office, you have to use a phone to reach somebody and at least for a foreigner getting the WLAN passwords right through muddy phone line is mission impossible. Also the phone was set so that you could only push the redial button and since the last time it had gone to operator I was only able to reach them. This is too bad service for 200 USD/night accommodation. WLAN was very slow. Connection shows all bars but just getting a basic news page to open takes 5 minutes, completely useless at least in the cabin where we stayed and should not been included in amenities of this place.
The cottage was basically ok but floors and dining table were dirty and again the kitchen was equipped with cheapest stuff I have ever seen. The forks were like from kids toys. In principal the pool was in use, but again you have to "See Wally or Staff to unlock" but... as nobody is never around, getting into pool would mean a phone call and waiting for somebody to show up. That´s it for a quick morning swim before your hot day.

I have stayed at the Cape Cod Wishing Well several times. It's just what I need on Cape Cod, conveniently located, near the beach, restaurants, and shopping, reasonably priced and open all year round. The rooms are very clean, the staff friendly and promptly responsive to any need. I will continue to stay there for my regular Cape Cod get away weekends.

Room Tip: There is a range of rooms available, from singles with one queen sized bed, to studios with a single...

Ok i read the other reviews, i have been staying at the Wishing Well since i was a child. As a child we took family vacations here with close family friends. 15 years later we are all grown and still coming here with our spouses. Our parents have since upgraded to a much more expensive place with a private beach now that we are out on our own but will still occasionally booked for a night here or there. Listen this is not the Ritz or the four seasons, and they don't pretend to be! It's a great location with beaches all around. i have read that the beaches are for residents only, this is not true! If you want to go to the beach that is in walking distance then you have to walk. The parking on the street is for residents. There are several entrances to the beach that you can park and walk down near the center, Its a 5 minute walk and if your lazy have your friends drop you off with the cooler and have them park. I read that you can do better for the price on here.... really? whoever wrote that clearly does not vacation on the cape often. Under a hundred bucks in season THATS UNHEARD OF! This year we showed up to check in and we were informed our reservation was for the next day. Which it was we wrote it down wrong. We were covered in sand and we were not looking forward to driving back to Boston and then back in the morning. Wally asked us to grab a bite and come back he rearrange some stuff and cleaned a room for us to use. I can't give then 5stars this year because our room was not as clean as has been in the past, but again we were all sandy and wanted to shower ASAP so we rushed them. Also our TV was not working, again though our fault we never told Wally because we really didn't care. However had we told him I know it would have been fixed immediately. Is this the place i go on my honeymoon probally not but it serves its purpose for a few day get away. I have sent several friends over the years and they loved it! It is what it is a motel so if you’re like us who spend most of your vacation on the beach and out in the evening drinking and eating then its probably right for you. P.S. This is a family friendly place do not bring your entire frat and try to jam 6 people into every room, you will get kicked out.

My wife and I arrived in early Aug 2011 from Saratoga NY for our annual trip to the Cape. We found conditions at the Wishing Well as expected - up to standard. The Staff was friendly and remembered us from last year. The rooms were clean and modern, and the price was reasonable. Everything that was promised was delivered. The location is also central. We are looking forward tp going back next year.

Spent 4 nights at the Wishing Well as part of a 3 week touring holiday. Stayed in rooms 15 & 16. Facilities exceeded expectations as the motel had recently been refurbished. The units were small by comparison to some of the hotels we had stayed in, but were well appointed. It was good to have inter connecting doors and a small kitchen area in room 15 which was big enough to accommodate four and made a great location for evening cards & games.

Wally & his team couldn't have been more helpful. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff & in particular Baird was a great help, providing additional cooking utensils, cleaning out the BBQ pits, providing washing detergent to clean the 2 weeks of laundry we had accumulated and also for the classical literature quotes. A real gent in every sense of the word.

The big upside was the fact the location had its own pool (unlike many other Capre Cod accommodations). The kids loved it and would have been in it 24 hrs a day if allowed.

Dont forget to pop into the tourist office in Harwichport for all the latest recommendations on where to eat (and more importantly where to avoid).

A must try restaurant is Castaways, east of Harwichport on Route 28. Excellent food, great beer and very friendly staff. It was so good we ate there twice.

The Wishing Well in West Harwich was a great little find. Dont be put off by the old reviews, things have improved greatly for this season.
