6/10 Good

The restaurant was very good for dinner and th4e continental breakfast was also very good. The place looks kind of run down, and the room we stayed in, though clean, was old and outdated, the plumbing or something was very noisy, and the HVAC system could use an upgrade from window air conditioner and separate heating. Bed was comfortable though.

6/10 Good

Kind of throwback that was updated but not quite enough. We had an enormous room but it was all dead space. no benches or anything like that to put luggage. The couch was fine but the chairs were uncomfortable. lightign was not great. the bathroom was nice and big and clean though. Sinks were a bit high but not too bad.

One to Avoid
This is an inn I've known about all my life (since the 1960's). It used to be a premier dining destination with an old inn attached. Now it's a pricey hotel with Motel-6-like features attached to a very limited pub-style restaurant. My thought in reserving was to recapture the nostalgia I had from wonderful meals here long ago. Instead the breakfast was the same packaged buffet you see anywhere with no service in sight: cheap breads, grocery store-style fruits, sweet cereals only (not even cornflakes or cheerios), coffee or tea. In the room was a comfortable bed, but one of the 6-foot decorative legs was barely attached, and the cable TV tuner was jammed against the wall above the TV screen itself. I thought I was in somebody's dorm room. The bathroom was very cold, but the temperature in the bedroom was fine. Our room was the corner room on a busy corner, so there was traffic noise. If this had been a typical motel I would not be writing this comment, but for a room that cost around $200 including tax, my goodness, this is way, way overpriced. I forgot to mention that when you enter the main area the heavy doors have no closers on them, so you hear a thundering crash upon entry or exit. Bizarre to think of what this property once was.

Our room was beautifully decorated in a style representative of the Cape Cod area. Ver convenient to areas of interest. We went in November and a lot of restaurants were closed.
