“Best Hotel we stayed at the Cape”
Reviewed November 16, 2009

This hotel was the cleanest place we ever stayed, and we travel often. The showers were sparkling and there were no cobwebs anywhere. The woman who greeted us was very friendly and accomadating. The price was very affordable and we were updated to a king bed when we got there. The pool and hot tub were amazing and the area was very clean. We plan to stay there whenever we go back to the Cape, which is often.

I stay at the Tidewater Inn everytime I visit Cape Cod. The staff is excellent and the rates are great. The management was really helpful to us in finding activities for our vacation and we also enjoy the 50's style breakfast diner there. We are looking foward to our next visit to the Cape and the Tidewater Inn.

We stayed at the Tidewater Inn for a weekend earlier this summer when we went to the cape in a last minute adventure. We wanted to stay somewhere central to the highlights of Mid cape - specifically Hyannis and Dennis and the Tidewater was in a perfect spot that allowed us to easily venture out to all other parts of the cape for day trips, etc. This unassuming hotel was a pleasant surprise! Such a great value for the money compared to other hotels on cape cod! It was very clean, and has been recently updated with new furniture, granite countertops, new rugs, curtains, etc. There is a nice pool area (that we spent an entire afternoon lounging around and thoroughly enjoying) and a large side lawn where we were able to picnic, bbq and relax under the shade of some big oaks. Even thought this hotel is on Rte 28 - the main drag - when out back on the lawn you'd think you were in Nantucket it was so quiet and peaceful with water views in the distance. We were pleasantly surprised to discover they had an onsite diner that served up an awesome breakfast with some of the friendliest waitstaff I've ever come across! Definately be sure to eat breakfast there when you go! All in all a great experience was hidden in this hidden gem of a hotel. We will definately stay here again!

I will surely return! Stayed for 2 nights as a solo time to be refreshed and renewed, for which the atmosphere was perfect. Had a room overlooking Lewis Bay and the beautiful grounds. From my private balcony enjoyed seeing both the sun and the moon rise, and families enjoying their playtime together. Pools were sparkling clean. Staff were very friendly and accommodating. Rate was excellent for a Holiday weekend. The Breakfast Diner was adorable; the service, food and beverage were wonderful, and the price couldn't be beat. Great location for reaching anything you want to do or need to get on the Cape. I would definitely recommend Tidewater Inn for anyone wanting a stay on Cape Cod that is satisfying and a great value.

I really enjoyed my stay at the Tidewater. I came down to the Cape with my girlfriends in mid-July and the location of the hotel was perfect. We were close to downtown Hyannis without being right in the middle of the craziness and close to many great beaches. The staff was friendly and accommodating and offered great suggestions of places to go and things to do. The rooms are a bit older, but were very clean and really affordablel. For three girls getting ready to hit the beach and town, the hotel was perfect... we were on the go and the room gave us a comfortable, accessible place to relax, sleep and get ready!

attentive staff, very nice, clean rooms. if there was anything i had a problem with(my screen door) i would simply call the front desk and they would fix it immediately.
something as simple as a screen door sliding off its track is completely understandable and definitely not a MAJOR inconvenience. it was probably MY own fault in the first place. l0l
the pools were great. very clean. no odors. (i dont know what the other reviewer was talking about.)
and YES,,, the diner is to die for. Violet is the chef and she is super sweet and very quick,,, even when the diner is full!
so,,, definitely give it a shot. great atmosphere, good location and very affordable.
thanks
p.s. as far as an ocean view,,, you will be on cape cod. there are ocean views everywehere u look. whats the big deal that u cant see it out your hotel room? walk down the road 50 feet and BAM,,, there your ocean view... ;)

I had the pleasure of staying at the Inn for just a couple days this summer, I wish I could have stayed longer!
I am not familiar with the beaches of Cape Cod. Any question I had about where to go, was answered with the kind of knowledge only someone who cares about giving their guest a great experience both on and off their grounds could give.
Though the rooms may not be newly decorated, they were comfortable, and clean, and with most of our time spent out of the hotel, what more could u ask for?
No hotel I have ever visited has had better on grounds diner, talk about a home cooked meal!
I reccomend to anyone looking for a warm, family atmoshere, to make a trip to this Inn.
