Where to start? I know it's a motel but it's really not. It's gorgeous! Beautiful rooms, large and airy and fresh with lovely interior design and excellent amenities. Wifi, TV, welcome packs, and a warm and welcoming reception serving a complimentary lovely fresh continental style breakfast. The location is great, the pool lovely and Holly and Michael could not have...

My husband and I only spent one night here. This small family owned hotel was not fancy, but was a delight. The rooms were spotlessly clean and bright and cheerful, and although somewhat Spartan, everything you needed to be comfortable was there, along with those little extra touches that make you feel at home. The continental breakfast was more than...

All of the great reviews are spot on. There is nothing particulary fancy about the hotel but they manage to provide a great experience nevertheless. The room was very clean, the breakfast was filling, and the exterior is kept very well maintained. This will definitely be our spot the next time we visit the Cape. Also, the location seems to...

Our bright room was quite large with two comfy queen beds and a sitting area. There was plenty of storage, a nice bathroom with cute beach-themed toiletries and plenty of towels. Plus FREE wifi....

My husband and I chose Cape Cod as our babymoon destination because it wasn't too far from home and was reasonably priced. We arrived on a rainy Sunday evening but seeing as we only had dinner planned for that night, we weren't too concerned with the weather. A quick check in and we were given the key to our room....

My husband and I needed an escape to the cape ...we really found one at The Escape Inn, right down to the soap in the bathroom called piña colada and the flip flop key chain!
