There are little cottages in the back of the property that house the rooms. Our room was clean, with a/c, comfortable bed and good water pressure on the shower. However I felt as if I were staying at my grandparents house. It's worn and old. There are several places to sit outside including a gazebo and huge pool. The continental... More

We had a nice relaxing time here. The staff were helpful and friendly. The rooms are old fashioned but spacious. The pool and seating is generous. The pool goes from 3 to 9 feet deep with a rope separating the 3 feet section. The breakfast is OK. The only issue we had was that the A/C had to be on... More

This was our first time staying at this property. We booked it, as we were able to get a one night stay on a Saturday night, which is often a difficult thing to do on the Cape during the height of the season. We found that everything the prior posters had written was correct, but that the pluses outweighed the... More

It's a no frills motel. It's clean and comfortable enough. Not luxurious in any way. They have different types of room. I had the traditional room right by the reception office. The rooms are small, but I didn't spend much time in the room anyways so it didn't both me much. It's quite run down. The room I stayed in... More

We visited this hotel last minute as we decided to extend our Cape vacation one night. We were put in a side room. The problem was a one lane curvy dangerous road to rooms numbered in the 50's. The parking area was tiny and it was difficult to turn around. Tree roots were poking through the asphalt, not a good... More

Issues include a scum on the pool, an air conditioner that didn't cool the room, and difficult to regulate shower water (too hot, too cold, changing frequently). Staff was very friendly and helpful, and the room was very clean and spacious.

The motel covers a large piece of property, with varied types of accommodations , which are not visible from the road. I booked a Traditional room, ( no stairs), which fronts the motel. The other rooms on the property are in a more woodsy setting, and are not visible from the front of the property. The room, overlooking the woods,was... More

I had a clogged toilet and was never repaired after numerous requests. The wi-fi was terrible. The walls were paper thin. The place was not clean. The air conditioner was very weak and did not cool the room at all. My room had windows that you could not lock. I was a single female and felt very unsafe. I booked... More

I have stayed at the Governor Prence Inn several times. I like the location (close to Chatham and not too far to Wellfleet). The motel is on the bike trail, a short walk to a great bakery, ice cream, and restaurants. I hope to return a couple more times this year.
