This is my second stay at Tidewater, my first was in the summer. The staff is wonderful, friendly and accommodating. The grounds and pool were well kept and clean. The room was perfect with a view of the water. This was a birthday trip for my sons' 50th, and it was just the perfect place to spend it!

Decided on a last minute trip to the cape. Knowing most motels have closed down for the season we found out that Tidewater stays open. We got a nice room, the desk clerk let us check it out first. It checked out fine, clean, neat and perfect for a last minute trip. We did stay on first floor since it...

I'm a little late in writing this review but I must say I really enjoyed my stay at the tidewater. My room was clean and had a beautiful water view of the pond. The new management that took over was attentive and very helpful always eager to please. The rates are more than reasonable considering what your getting compared to...

Over the years the Tidewater had been consistently good. While some others say the tide is going out for this hotel, I see the tide is coming back in. Recently sold by Voula, the new owners did the prudent thing in waiting for the summer season to pass before renovating and doing case goods (furniture) change-outs which they are now...

The Tidewater Inn in West Yarmouth was awful. The rooms are disgusting, and the management is rude and dishonest. The room I stayed in was very dirty and smelt musty. I pulled the comforter off the bed and the sheets were dirty. As if dirty sheets isn't bad enough the toilet was also filthy and the sink faucet was broken....

White Star Tours booked this place and it was a very poor choice on their part. Did not look to bad on the outside but the rooms were lacking in many ways compared to the completion. It definitely has the 50's vibe with no updates. Sheets, bed and TV were all weary with age.There was a strong oder present upon...

We have stayed here for about 23 years and very disappointed this time. They put us upstairs over the office and there was no heat coming out of the heater/ac. Just blasted cold air. about a 10 watt bulb in the bath/shower room. Scarcely appointed (mildly stated) room, chairs were threadbare. Room smelled of old cigarettes and carpet was almost...

We have been staying here for 5 or 6 years and have always loved it. This trip was a total fiasco. The service was terrible and the front desk staff were rude. We will not be back. There are many other better places in the area!!!!
