“Very friendly but dated hotel”
Reviewed October 19, 2013

Our room in the new block with indoor pool. was clean and well equiped. The staff were all extremely friendly and helpful. The decor and furnishings were dated but clean and well maintained. Breakfast set us up nicely for the day. The hotel is ideally situated just off the main street in a quiet area.

We stayed here for 3 nights in one of the older blocks. The room was damp, smelled musty and had paper thin walls so we could hear what TV show the people in the next room were watching. Definitely recommend trying to get a room in the new block (where the indoor pool is).

The hotel is centrally located and only a 1 minute walk to the main street of Falmouth. The beach is about a 5 minute walk down one road, but it's quite rocky.

The room came with a complimentary breakfast which was pretty basic. The outdoor pool was great and the indoor one was pretty good too. Unfortunately, the front office staff (guess they were seasonal) were pretty hopeless in our interactions with them. We, along with about 10 other guests, were seriously delayed in checking in and the front office lady kept telling us it would be five more minutes and for us to be patient. After a couple of hours, all the guests were quite frustrated, more with her attitude rather than the delay.

All in, this felt like it would have been a great place to stay in the 1970's. It could do with a renovation and also some modern training for the front office staff. The place is redeemed by its location and the two pools.

Room Tip: New building.

Given room in the more modern block, good size nice clean room with good facilities unfortunately the friends travelling with us were put in the old block. Their room smelt damp and was very old fashioned, they were moved the next day. The location of the hotel was excellent, the staff were brilliant

We stayed here for 2 nights. Our room was very comfortable and the staff very helpful & friendly. The hotel is only a few minutes walk from the main street and a short drive to the beach. The complimentary breakfast was good but a tip is expected. Would definitely stay here again.

It looks like I was with the same tour as the previous reviewer and would like to confirm everything she has said about this lovely hotel. As a single traveller I felt very comfortable in the surrounds and the hotel is situated in a nice, residential quiet position with the beaches and shops a short walk away. I really enjoyed my stay at the Shoreacres Inn and would definitely revisit if I ever return to Cape Cod.

Last week my husband & I spent 4 nights at the Shoreway Acres Inn. Our room was situated in the pool house on the ground floor, the room was clean & welcoming, I would call the decor shabby-chic, it had 2 queen sized beds,a flat screen tv & a small kitchenette which had a fridge-freezer, microwave & a coffee/tea maker. Bed linen & towels were of good quality & changed daily. The water in the bathroom was always hot.
On our arrival our coach-trip was met with cheese, nibbles & cocktails.
The Shoreway is a family run Inn & it showed, the owners & staff were very friendly & attentive.
Breakfasts were wonderful, home-cooked with eggs, bacon, sausage, muffins, fruit, cereals & so much more.
The Inn is set behind Falmouth Main street, just a 5 minute walk to the shops & restaurants.
The only down-size we experienced was the lack of grocery shops nearby, we walked quite a way to find fresh milk & other bits & pieces.
On the morning of our leaving the staff came out to wave off our coach, we were given 2 boxes of freshly cooked cookies to share on our journey to Boston.
If we are lucky enough to return to Falmouth again, we would certainly stay at the Shoreways Acres Inn.

Room Tip: An Inn is totally different to a hotel, they are more like a boarding house, so if you are wanting a...

Just returned to England after a week at the Shoreway Acres Inn. Had such a fantastic week, so family friendly and quaint. We loved the old colonial style of the Inn, had so Much character , felt like home. Dining room staff were so lovely and the guy Jim on reception gave us such a lovely welcome after travelling from Boston, after getting lost, in the middle of the night. My ten year old was never bored for a minute with the hotel being in such a good location next to beach and town. Thanks to everyone for making our experience so enjoyable and we will certainly be revisiting.
