My husband & I went to the cape to visit grandchildren. We were pleasantly surprised with our stay at the Inn at Swan River. When driving up to the "inn" we realized it was a converted motel. We thought we'd check it out anyway. Swan River is well cared for, clean and pleasantly decorated. There is no breakfast there but...

We stayed at the Inn at Swan River for 3 nights. The room was well appointed, quiet, clean, and comfortable. It was a good central location for visiting the Cape and the price was reasonable. My only warning would be that if someone is expecting a quaint inn, based on the name, this is not the place to stay.

Ok to be fair the room was Clean. There were lots of nice towels. The room ( under the stairwell) was larger than usual for a motel. The tv danced in and out of the signal. The staff said they called Comcast after I complained one day into our stay, which was supposed to be one week. We left 3...

Not really an inn, more a motel. The room was comfortable enough although a bit shabby. The pool was shut for the season. There was no food on the premises and we had to drive up the road for breakfast although, admittedly only a few minutes away. We got a very friendly welcome from the lady on reception but she...

Inn reminded my Husband and I of a quaint motel from the 50's and 60's, but with with all the modern conveniences. Centrally located, enabling us to explore the Cape. The Inn was very clean and staff accommodating. The back area was very lovely, providing a wonderful quite area outside to relax in the evening. The best I can say...

We stayed at the Inn at Swan River on a recent road trip to the Dennis area to pick up a painting at an auction house. I have mixed feelings about the Inn. It was a budget hotel so I shouldn't have expected a Hilton type experience. The room was clean, the large flat screen tv had no HD service...

Loved this spot. Staff was extraordinary. I stopped by the office, even though online sites said there were no vacancies. Sure enough, Shana got me a room, and it was wonderful. Room was spotless. It's near everything, but still quiet. Can't save enough about the staff. Shana was extremely helpful. Beds were so comfortable. Checked out in the morning, and...

From start to finish, everything was above and beyond.
