“As Always, Pleasant and Restful”
Reviewed June 13, 2010

We have been coming to the Tidewater Inn for several years, and, as always, our experience is one of complete comfort and relaxation. The Tidewater is always clean and the housekeeping staff are very competent and efficient. The grounds are beautiful and the area is always quiet.

Some of the amenities include: Helen's Diner serving quality breakfasts at a most reasonable cost; The indoor and outdoor pools and the jacuzzi hot tub; The game room with its many board games and puzzles for that leisure time later in the evening; and The outdoor cooking facilities when you are inclined to picnic.

The Tidewater is centrally located in the mid-cape area. Travel to Chatham takes about 20 minutes. There are supermarkets, discount stores, and many interesting specialty shops and restaurants located right in Yarmouth (West and South), within a 5 minute drive.

The staff is always courteous and helpful. We value these features and come to the Tidewater 4 times a year to recharge our "batteries".

We didn't enjoy our visit at all . We were just a family trying to have a mini vacation,and were not told that we were going to have to share the entire motel with three soccer teams and you forgot the lacrosse teams there too. We couldn't use the play ground until Monday and the pool was a joke there were kids jumping inand yelling and the hot ... See Moretub was filled with young kidstoo. My4 year old was too scared to go swimming afterthat night,and she usually loves to swim. We were even bumped into by kids running in the halls,and at one time their were so many kids hanging up and down the stairs yelling out some song we could hardly get up stairs. Now, we having been comming to your motel for 7 years now,and never had a bad experience like this. We stayed for three days and even asked if we could check out early on the last day and was told no, we needed to give 48 hours notice. We told the man at the front desk on Saturday how horrible the kids at the motel were being and he could care less. We will never return!!

tidewatercapecod, Owner at Tidewater Inn, responded to this review, June 14, 2010
We apologize for your experience at the Tidewater during Memorial Day Weekend. This weekend is always a very busy weekend for all hotels throughout the Cape for there is a Soccer Tournament on the Cape. While we do try hard to make sure everyone follows the rules and do patrol the hallways periodically, we do appreciate it when customers notify us of problems and we can address them immediately. If kids are misbehaving in the pool or using the hot tub (which is for 16 or older) a customer can notify us and we will make sure that they adhere to the rules. I asked several kids to leave the pool area who were without adults and the man at the front desk went to the back building every half hour to check the hallways. When we have and sold out weekend with so many kids, the pool and picnic area will be busy. In order to solve problems, we appreciate a customer bringing the specific problems to the front office when they happen so we can resolve the problem. I was the one who was asked if one could check out early and I stated our policy. If I had been told why you wanted to leave, I would have had no problem refunding the last night. Hopefully, you won't forget the 7 good visits you had and will return.

Clean, comfortable, well-located, this hotel is full of amenities that you would not expect for the reasonable price. Two pools, an on-site fun diner, cleanliness all over, we found ourselves enjoying our trip and welcoming the comfortable beds and pillows at day's end.

I have stayed at better holes in the walls in the middle of nowhere. Our room smelled like urine and mold. The beds were like planks of wood and I'm writing this as we are RUNNING out of this motel. DO NOT stay at this hotel. We actually planned to drive home if we couldn't find another place to stay versus staying here another night. When I finally DID get to sleep, it lasted only a few hours until woken up at 6 AM by someone else's shower and then loads of loud people in the parking lot. RUN AWAY from this hotel.

Visited the Tidewater in West Yarmouth often. The Motel is not 5 star but is clean and tidy. Motel is generaly quiet and thge Managment go to grreat lengths to ensure a no noise policy. Bathrooms and furnatature are acceptable but TV.s are getting somewhat past it. Great value spotless breakfast cafe on site. Located just 1 mile from central Hyannis this modestlly priced motel is reccomended

This was our first time coming to Cape Cod and we really enjoyed the Tidewater. Clean rooms, we loved it and so did the kids.

My sister and I stayed a night with the kids aged 15 and 3. It was off season so very quiet. The owner was very nice and offered above average service. We were given a room close to the indoor pool and diner. Our reason for being here was to use the pool so this was great. Outside of our sliding door was the playground which looked nice but it was too cold to use. The room was average size, typical setup and above average clean. The bathroom was dated but clean. The beds were comfy and the furniture was new. This was the quietest hotel we have ever stayed at. Most of the rooms around us were booked but we never heard neighbors. The pool area is average. Definately a bit dated but adequate. The pool was heated but still on the chilly side. 2 degree higer would have been much more comfortable. The hot tub was nice, although it would be awkward to be in there with a stranger since it is small. We didn't visit the diner but it looked nice. We had a fun night stay and would definately come back for a night to let the kids swim for such a reasonable priced stay.
