My husband and I truly enjoyed our stay at the Escape Inn. This trip we were looking for a place that allowed us to get away for a few days without a great deal of expense. At the same time cleanliness, location, and hospitality are extremely important to us. We also wanted to experience the "feel" of the Cape and not an ordinary hotel room. The Escape Inn met all our expectations. The owners Holly and Mike couldn't have been more hospitable, considerate and professional from their planning and execution of a delightful continental breakfast to their suggestions for area restaurants. Our room was immaculate with white beachy style furnishings, soft yellow walls, a large flat screen TV with cable, and gleaming hard wood floors. The queen bed was comfortable and with a double sheeted white comforter. I wasn't sure about staying at a place on busy Rt. 28 but our room was in the back, which I recommend, allowing for minimal noise from traffic. Sept. coolness did not allow us to use the pool but it looked great, well kept, and clean. The location was perfect to travel from whether going up or down Cape or to the many beaches (we choose the National Seashore). If you are looking for an economical stay, that still caters to a comfortable, Cape ambiance, without the frills that cause the price to go sky high, we highly recommend the Escape Inn. We will definitely be back.

We stayed at the Escape Inn for 3 nights. We had chosen it due to the good reviews on tripadvisor, and the location...walking distance to HOMEMADE ice cream, and were very pleased that we did. The Inn is set just off a busy road ( Route 28) but there is absolutely NO noise and this gives very easy access to explore the entire cape. Yarmouth is the perfect central location to see all areas of Cape Cod., nothing is far away! The rooms are immaculately clean with lovely white furniture and beachy feel. Holly and Michael were wonderful hosts, they are extremely friendly, gave great recommendations about the local area and best places to visit and did not mind all our crazy questions!! They could not have been any more helpful or welcoming. We look forward to staying here again next time we return to cape cod.
Thank you Holly & Michael!

We returned to the Escape Inn one year after our initial stay and subsequent review. Everything said previously holds true. Don't hesitate to stay here, as you can rely on the consistently excellent reviews.

I found the Escape Inn on Trip Advisor when I decided to make a quick 3 day trip to Cape Cod. Luckily, they had a vacancy for two nights. The rooms are immaculate and well appointed. The owners, Holly and Michael, could not be nicer or more helpful. No restaurant, but a nice continental breakfast.My only minor complaint is: having to go out for decaf coffee in the morning. It seems that there are probably enough customers who have to avoid caffeine to warrant a pot of decaf. Aside from that, I was very pleased with my stay...at a great price, too.

The Escape Inn is one of the cleanest places we have stayed in and one of the nicest. Holly and Michael are two of the nicest people you could ever meet and that made the stay just that much more enjoyable. The room was spotless and nicely decorated, good beachy feel. Nice location also, right next to the Creamery (wonderful ice cream). Very nice continental breakfast included in a very reasonable price, sorry it was only for one night but we will be back. Would highly recommend to anyone. We wish Michael and Holly the best with the continued renovations and look forward to seeing them again.

We spent 2 nights at the escape in. The location was perfect, close to all the great spots in the Cape. Michael was super helpful in giving us ideas of things to do and places to go. The rooms are very newly renovated and they are beautiful. We would definitely stay there again.
