My girlfriend and I stayed one night here over the Memorial holiday, as we were passing through. We were not disappointed, except for the price. On our trip we found Holiday Inns that had lower rates. However, the price was moderate and fit the area. The owner/manager was super friendly and very helpful. The room was very clean, the décor...

This lodge is a classic motel building, old, but extremely well maintained and perfectly clean. We loved it. The owner is friendly and helpful. The continental breakfast here means coffee (really good - by far the best we had as part of an included breakfast during our 3-weeks-trip) and the usual fat donut. Don't go to the "Breakfast Room" -...

We stayed for 4 nights in September. Very clean and well maintained. Flat screen TV. The owner/manager was very friendly and helpful. The location was good for us and breakfast was within walking distance (3 or 4 blocks). I'm not sure what the bad reviews are about, maybe there are new owners. If you expect a 4-star place for this...

My boyfriend was visiting from England and we wanted to do something nice, away from typical MA ventures. My dad suggested we go to the Cape. I was nervous since it was Labor Day weekend that it'd be pricey for us. We found a very affordable price for Sunday at GuestLodge. We liked it enough that we saw the low...

I was nervous about staying here after reading these reviews but as I've learned, don't put your full and complete trust in other's opinions. First, most reviewers write reviews because of what they consider THE WORST EXPERIENCE they've had. Second, people will make promises to themselves to write a review about THE BEST EXPERIENCE they've had but usually forget. Third,...

The Guestlodge in West Dennis is located along a road without any charm, but very practical is you come by car, far from the see and without any view. The room rented was very clean, modern and with all the minimum comfort you can find in this kind of accomodation, but very dark and at the ground floor with just...

If you drive a motorcycle you will not be welcome at this hotel. I booked a double queen bed room for 229.00. I checked in left to eat and then after about 5 minutes after returning got a call from the owner berating me for taking up 2 parking spots even though I have 2 adults staying in my room....

Normally, I don't stay at budget hotels. But I made a last minute decision to stay here based on the price and last minute availability. I was truly impressed. It is a well-located intimate hotel with a clean, ample sized pool. The hotel was freshly painted, updated, and the rooms were very comfortable. The rooms include a small but adequate...
