Stayed there for a weekend in September and it is conveniently located in the center of Cape Cod. Very close to a lot of restaurants and shops. The staff was friendly and the room was clean and good size, although seemed to be little bit outdated. Would not mind staying there again if in the area because of the very...

Thank you for your review. Even though our hotel is older and somewhat dated, we do offer rooms that have been more updated with new bedding and carpeting overlooking the picnic area and Mill Pond. They do cost a bit more but offer a different experience. Glad you enjoy your visit and hope to see you again when you visit...

The only negative we have come across in our years of staying at the Tidewater Inn is the parking. After being out all day, the last thing we want to do is park far away from our building and walk. This happened to us every night because all of the spots in front of our building were full.

So sorry that you had trouble parking in front of your room. It must have been peak season because we have such a large parking lot that there's usually no problem with parking. We are so glad that you are one of our regulars and thank you for choosing the Tidewater when you visit the Cape. See you soon.

I have stayed at the Tidewater Inn for years in the off season - spring and fall. The rooms have always been clean and we love the hot tub & pool. When we call we are given a room by the door - I'm handicapped and that's a great help with walking to & from the car (and to the...

Upon entering the room, it seemed like most "average" hotel rooms. It was a bottom floor room, small but clean and I have to admit, I was impressed with the size of the bathroom. King size bed was adequate and the tv was tiny but all in all...okay for the money spent. The problems began at 4:00 am when some...

I truly apologize for your experience. The disturbance did happen, but we didn't find out until the following morning when guests were checking out. We give every guest who checks in a welcome letter with the extension of the overnight staff in case there is a problem after the office closes. Guests do call this number if they need anything...

Hope you enjoyed your visit to the Cape and the Tidewater. The season on the Cape ends after Columbus Day weekend which usually falls in mid October. While fall on the Cape is beautiful and very affordable, many of the seasonal activities do close.

Thank you for your review. We do have a lot of bus tours in the fall and they appear to take over the diner, but we reserve several tables for our non tour guests.
