"caope cod in July"
I expected a few more amenities. Parking spaces close to the entrance were at a premium. Lots of things to do for children and some for adults too. The staff was quite friendly, We enjoyed our stay.

"Location and staff a plus"
While the hotel is ideally situated and the rooms were functional and clean, the resort caters to families with young children. If you have preteen or older children, this is NOT the resort for you.

"Average"
The hotel is great for families with young children. Pools are nice but loaded with kids. The beach at low tide had seaweed just past our calves. Ok for children, but not for adult swimming. Pretty to look at though. It would have been nice if staff unstacked the beach lounge chairs in the morning. The staff was friendly. When checking in, it would have been helpful to be provided with some info regarding the resort. All we got out of the woman at the desk was our keys and directions to our room. First floor room was very noisy as there seemed to be unsupervised children running and jumping above us up until 11 or do. Room was ok, nice larger than a dorm size refrig in the room, though no coffee maker. It would have been nice to have some adult entertainment at night. We only had breakfast at the restaurant and it was reasonable and very good. Try the blueberry pancakes! All in all, for the price of the stay, it was just average for adults with no children. If I had kids under 10 they would have loved it!

"Location is great"
Overall, we had an enjoyable time. I read scores of reviews on here before going and most all were on the money. The hotel could use some overall renovations however it isn't horrible either. Don't misunderstand; it's not a five star resort but I did feel their prices almost reflected that. Granted we are in season and we went on the July 4th holiday however I still felt the prices were a bit inflated for 3 star accommodations. Secondly we stayed in a beachfront view and the view was excellent however at the extreme end of the hotel the wifi is useless, your device can't keep the signal. Come on guys- we should spend $50 on a wifi repeater to make Internet access useful for your most expensive rooms! That said its a great location and staff and we would probably go back

"Perfect two night getaway with the kids!"
This resort was great. It had old time Cape Cod feel with all the amenities. Kids pool (my 3yr old never left), Lager pool (perfect for me and my 6yr old). Late night swims in the very clean indoor pool. Food and drinks by the pool was a bonus, never had to leave during the day. The restaurant served good quality food. We had breakfast and dinner both days there. The beach is beautiful and very spacious. Even with a lot of people, there was enough space that no one was on top of you. Drink service on the beach was a very nice touch! Best of all was the staff. Extremely friendly and attentive. At every turn someone was there to help you and make you feel at home. Whether it was the restaurant staff, room service personnel or the beach staff bringing out your lounge chairs and umbrella, they all were exceptional and courteous. Another nice touch was the many daily activities for the kids. We were not expecting it, but was a welcome addition for my boys!! Thanks RJ Beach Resort for a great getaway. We will be back!!

"Red Jacket Inn"
For the approximately $450 room, the room was worth about $75. The ocean view was nice though and there is a sandy beach. We only stayed there one night as we were traveling. It was cool and rainy when we stayed there so we didn't get out on the beach. It could have been cleaner. Had to dust the thick layer of dust off the headboards before we slept in them. For the price, you would think they could afford to have the maids spend more time cleaning as it could have been much cleaner.

Mattress gave us both a backache...this is unusual....no shower cap and of course I did not realize it until it was too late....musty smell but the air conditioner took care of it...we were asked at the front desk to put down an extra $200 to cover any damages....like we are both over 65 and coming to the Cape to a $235.00 room and we are going to damage it? It felt like the value was not there, especially for off season. We go to the Cape every May to the Ocean Mist. But this was not available.

At first we were on the first floor facing the beach, but the noise from upstairs was very loud. The wooden floors transmit all the noise from above. Once we moved to an upstairs room it was much better.

"Ocean Front Vacation"
02/02/16 Elizabeth G East Berlin, Pennsylvania
Our room was considered to be on the second floor. You really only had to walk up maybe 8 stairs and you then were on your ocean front porch with table and 2 chairs. In front of the porch was a small parking area for 4 cars. Just past the parking area was the sand and then the ocean. You could see all of it from the porch and our room; a really beautiful view! Our room itself had 1 king size bed and 2 single beds. There was a full kitchen with stove, oven, dishwasher, refrigerator, sink, soap, dishes, etc. There also was a table to eat at that was right in front of the window that faced the porch and ocean. From the other window on the other side of the door, you had the same view, minus the porch. There were 2 comfortable chairs with a small table in front of that window. We loved it! The resort had activities for children and adults; a DJ playing music in the evening with adults and children dancing in the sand; another night they had a bonfire for toasting marshmallows that the resort supplied as well as the sticks. The resort also had an indoor pool as well as an outdoor pool. The signal for Wifi was weak being you were on the cape. We had a great time! We sat out on our porch quite a bit and kicked back and relaxed. If we had older children with us, they could have been right there on the beach and we could have seen them from the porch. It was truly one of the best vacations I have ever had! We plan on going again!

"In retrospect"
01/15/16 Tom F Mansfield, Massachusetts
We brought the family back to the Cape and booked the Red Jacket in July 2015. The 8 adults and 8 kids had a very nice time and had perfect weather. The rooms are old looking but comfortable and the staff overall was helpful. You always get a few slackers at a large resort but I can't condemn the whole staff. The location is central for day trips and great restaurants are nearby. My wife and I are beach bums and the grandchildren loved the 2 pools. I wasn't going to review the trip but the grandchildren keep bring up "the magic show", " roasting marshmallows on the beach", sand sculptures and more. We had a couple of staff who went out of their way to make us feel welcomed. I especially remember a bartender originally from Arizona and a bell hop who never had his hand out for a tip

"4th of July Weekend 2015"

Visited the Red Jacket Beach Report for 4th of July weekend. Great activities for the kids. Indoor Pool with Movie night was a lot of fun. Outside Pool was beautiful, with walk out to beach cabanas. Definitely considering going again with the family this year.

"Summer vacation"
11/11/15 Tracey A Dover, New Hampshire, United States
We had a great ocean view room overlooking the lawn. Easily accessible. Large balcony with great ocean views. Dining options weren't the best for a family with a toddler--no grab and go. The take-out option was nice for times at the beach/pool. Overall, a great place, would probably be better once the little one is older!

"Outstanding Experience"
11/02/15 pmcd101 Boston, MA
We held a conference at the Red Jacket Inn in mid October and I cannot say enough good things about the experience. We had roughly 80 attendees and the feedback from all has been outstanding. The grounds are beautiful, as are the views. But what really did it for me was how well we were treated. Paul and his entire staff have the perfect attitude towards customer service. They were accommodating with last-second room changes, on extra coffee and water refills, on slight changes to schedule...whatever we needed, they were there to provide it with a smile. They repeatedly thanked us for being there. If you are considering heading to the Red Jacket for a conference or group booking, do it. You won't be disappointed.

"Nice place, directly on the beach, nice indoor and outdoor pools"
10/24/15 Puzzpouding Montreal
We were at the hotel only for one night but we really wished we could have stayed longer. Room: The room was big and nice, with a river view. The view was beautiful and we had a nice private balcony. Pool: The indoor pool is very nice, lots of lounging chairs, water is rather warm, very comfortable Beach: The hotel is directly on the beach, which is larger at this place.

"Another October at the Red Jacket, So. Yarmouth"
10/18/15 Frances S Boston, Massachusetts
We just got back from our usual week's stay at the RJ. October is such a beautiful month on Cape Cod. The RJ is the best spot in the Hyannis/So. Yarmouth area. The property is kept up to perfection and the staff is so accommodating. It's a home away from home. The view from the Ocean front rooms is beautiful, awesome sunsets and sunrises. The breakfasts are awesome, everything is so fresh and prepared so expertly by the Chefs John and James. The quaint bar area is very homey, special thanks to bartenders Evan and Dee. They made some great chocolate and cantaloupe martinis. Management staff are all very cool, thanks, Paul, Linda, Joe, Diane, Peggy and everyone else who made our stay so pleasant. We already made our reservations for next year. Yeah! Leo & Fran Stack

"Great weekend away."
10/12/15 Dennis G East Bridgewater, MA
My wife and I spent the Columbus Day weekend at the Red Jacket Resort. We had traveled there the past two Columbus Day weekends as well. We spent 3 nights, and had a river view room. The room was quite nice, clean with a king size bed, very comfortable. We had a second floor room with a nice view of Parkers River. We had a private balcony as well. The property is a little old, but it is well maintained. The weather was nice enough for some of the guests to use the outdoor heated pool. There is an indoor pool as well. My thanks to Diane for our room selection. She goes above, and beyond to make sure that guests are treated well. The housekeeping girls were all very nice. We were returning to our room one day as they were finishing our room. They asked if we needed anything, and how our room was. Very pleasant, professional. We also stopped to chat with Patrick the groundskeeper as we were checking out. He is an asset to the property.He always make a point to seek us out and chat with us. The grounds were well manicured,pristine. Beautiful plantings, and a Halloween theme. We had the breakfast buffet one morning, and had a burger in the pub for lunch one afternoon. The breakfast was very good. Pancakes, fresh fruit, cold cereal, bacon, sausage, home fries,scrambled eggs, danish, and ham and cheese croissant mini sandwiches. Every station was fresh, and hot. Items were filled as necessary. Our server was very nice, polite, greeting us with a smile. I didn't get to see her name. Our Pub Burger was very good. Bacon cheeseburger. Sweet potato fries were very good as well. Our bartender/server was very nice. We chatted about the Patriots who were playing that day. A great guy. We were able to watch the fireworks the night before we left. The hotel had hot chocolate available for guests while the fireworks were being set off. There was a wedding on the property while we were there. By my observations the staff did a great job. Very professional. My wife and I enjoy staying at the property. Each of our stays there are always very good. The property is right on the ocean. Great views. It is easily located off route 28. Nothing negative to say about our experience. Speaking with other guests, they have stayed at the property numerous time as well. One gentleman as we were checking out was making his reservation for next year. look forward to returning next year as well.

"Great location"
10/05/15 Carolyn B Bournemouth, United Kingdom
This hotel is on the beach, great for a lovely walk. The room was lovely and had a bottle of champagne waiting for us on our arrival for our anniversary. The restaurant was good offering a nice menu, the bar was noisy but this was due to a wedding being held the next day. Stayed here for two nights and really enjoyed it.

"Nice location but older, tired hotel"

Had parking lot view. Musty smell, tired decor, toiletries not replaced every day, seemed like room had not been used recently, toilet slow to flush. Young staffers tried to please - had little to work with.
