    Located in Orleans, The Governor Prence Inn is near the beach. The area's natural beauty can be seen at Nauset Beach and Cape Cod National Seashore, while Cape Cod Museum of Natural History and Cape Cod Museum of Art are cultural highlights.

    4/5 Good

    The room was clean and surprisingly to be in good shape for a cheaper price

    Stayed 1 night in Oct 2019

    5/5 Excellent

    Excellent value for the dollar. Permanent and seasonal staff were friendly and attentive. The property is clean and well maintained. As mentioned in other reviews, some elements are dated. I believe this is the main ingredient that brings their price point lower, a fair and reasonable trade in my opinion. They do well with what they have. I visit the Cape to enjoy the outdoors, not to assess the bathroom fixtures. The team keeps their stuff working and clean, I get a fun end-of-day swim and a good night's rest. To me, that is perfect. I will return.

    Good location near Cape Cod bike path. We found great places to eat nearby. The property itself looks/feels like a roadside motel from the 70s. Bathroom is very small, with no place to put your things. AC unit dominates the room. If you need a place to stay at the last minute, you’ll probably find a room here.
