It's a no frills motel. It's clean and comfortable enough. Not luxurious in any way. They have different types of room. I had the traditional room right by the reception office. The rooms are small, but I didn't spend much time in the room anyways so it didn't both me much. It's quite run down. The room I stayed in...

We visited this hotel last minute as we decided to extend our Cape vacation one night. We were put in a side room. The problem was a one lane curvy dangerous road to rooms numbered in the 50's. The parking area was tiny and it was difficult to turn around. Tree roots were poking through the asphalt, not a good...

Issues include a scum on the pool, an air conditioner that didn't cool the room, and difficult to regulate shower water (too hot, too cold, changing frequently). Staff was very friendly and helpful, and the room was very clean and spacious.

The motel covers a large piece of property, with varied types of accommodations , which are not visible from the road. I booked a Traditional room, ( no stairs), which fronts the motel. The other rooms on the property are in a more woodsy setting, and are not visible from the front of the property. The room, overlooking the woods,was...

I had a clogged toilet and was never repaired after numerous requests. The wi-fi was terrible. The walls were paper thin. The place was not clean. The air conditioner was very weak and did not cool the room at all. My room had windows that you could not lock. I was a single female and felt very unsafe. I booked...

I have stayed at the Governor Prence Inn several times. I like the location (close to Chatham and not too far to Wellfleet). The motel is on the bike trail, a short walk to a great bakery, ice cream, and restaurants. I hope to return a couple more times this year.

It's unfortunate that Julie K did not enjoy her stay here with us...despite our best attempts... It is even more unfortunate that she has now embarked upon a crusade to misinform the online community with her false accusations and unfounded opinions. She had previously posted another "review" on this site --which has apparently been removed --probably because it was incorrect...

My husband and I spent 4 days, 3 nights here and LOVED it!! It is a typical older Cape motel but our room was well-cared for, very clean...no musty smells or odors, no bugs!, and larger than most standard rooms (Courtyard King).
