    4/5 Good

    The pool was very large. Friendly owners, pet friendly quaint, clean, and safe. I will definitely stay here again.

    Insects on pool and in room. No safe in room. Breakfast buns nice, but otherwise very limited breakfast.

    Pros: Home-made buns for breakfast.

    Service with Respect

    This was my plan B for my long weekend in Wellfleet. I didn’t need plan B and ended up paying for a two night stay, a last minute booking. I appreciate the willingness of this hotel’s management to work with me and consider returning some amount of my payment if they were able to successfully rebook the room. I would definitely rebook this hotel if I ever find myself in Wellfleet again.

    5/5 Excellent

    We got in around 1 in the morning so I called ahead. They left the room unlocked with the key in it for us! Every morning was super fresh muffins and coffee. The staff was excellent and personable. I'll definitely stay here again!
