"I really would go back."
Not a snob, but I definitely have high standards for where I lay my head on vacay. I prefer the 5 stars, but can't always afford, or more often, they just aren't available where our travels are taking us. In this case I wanted an affordable weekend for two friends and me on the cape, and Tidewater seemed to fit the bill. I really went with low expectations. […] I actually wrote the Tidewater a nice email right before Hotels.com popped up w/ a review request. In a nutshell: Affordable, Convenient, clean, friendly and attentive. The rooms are small, dated, very clean (new carpets and prob new comforters), Grounds are spacious, neat, have indoor and outdoor pools, breakfast on-site, strong coffee, and the young lady who "mans" the grill made the best over-easy eggs. Ever. Staff very attentive, friendly, professional. Location was decent. Typical tourist hotel/restaurant dotted main road but it's only minutes to Hyannis and the ferry to Martha's Vineyard, and just over an hour's drive to P-town. We were there early October and getting around was a breeze. It isn't near beaches and driving would probably be awful so I don't think I'd want to stay here in high season, but It's a great place to go in the off-season.

The hotel was a good stay. Had a little weird smell, but overall not bad.Genuine Expedia guest review
"A great experience."
My friend and I spent a week there. It was clean and the staff very friendly. The breakfast was good at Helen's and reasonably priced. they had lots of tours but they managed them well so if you came the same time they did you didn't have to wait for your breakfast. We would come back there.Genuine Expedia guest review

"awesome hotel for cape cod vacation"
This place was great. They were very nice and helpful. Kids went to sleep easily. The real bathtub (rather than a typical hotel tub that seems unsturdy and slippery was a definite plus as was the indoor pool (in addition to the outdoor one), particularly in the rain. There is also a nice playground with sand underneath on the property for kids to play […] in. Great place for a family vacation with super friendly staff. I wouldn't recommend the diner though. We left after looking at the high prices and low selection without ordering food. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
It was a lovely 2 night stay. I was not exactly find of the indoor pool faculty but was happy with the outdoor facility. They also have a cute little diner onsite that was convenient.Genuine Expedia guest review
"You get what you pay for"
This hotel was ok for the price. The room was clean but you could tell it was very old. The pool was clean. They have a diner on site that only serves breakfast. It's good for a a quick breakfast but don't expect anything special. I ordered oatmeal and got hot water with a packet of instant oats. The staff was great and friendly. They tried their best […] to be as helpful as possible. Bottom line: it's fine if you don't plan on spending a lot of time at the hotel and just need a place to sleep Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Cape Cod convenience"
The Tidewater is convenient to everything on Mid-Cape, just a couple of miles from Hyannis Center and the Cape Cod Mall and close to various restaurants. There's an on-site 50's-themed restaurant for convenience and several other restaurants within walking distance. There's both an indoor and outdoor pool and various beaches are close by. The room was […] clean and a decent size. Though the TV was not a large flat screen, it did come with cable and all the typical Boston cable stations I'm accustomed to, i.e., most importantly, I was able to watch Red Sox games.

"Good value for location"
Overall our stay was good, the room was clean but dated. There is a small frig, but we had to ask for a microwave that we were initially told would be a $10 per day charge, but in the end were not charged. We had a second floor room which was fine, but the stairs up on the outside walkway were a bit shakey. For the cost and what it is, it's a good place […] to stay with our young kids (7 and 1). The staff was friendly and accommodating for the most part . Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Tidewater Inn Thank you for your review. We appreciate your feedback on your experience. You did book the economy rooms in the front but we do have more updated rooms in our back building that has interior corridors. Some have sliders leading out to the picnic area and offer nice views of Mill Pond. These rooms a bit more but are perfect for families with small children. Hope to see you again
The owners were so arrogant and rued when asked questions. They are in great need of customer service skills. The home made signs in their dinning area were insulting. One of them stated, if you don't want to eat here go some wheres else. The shower area was very dark, I had to leave the curtain half open to let the light in. The entrance door was very […] hard to open. I went back to the office and notified the female owner, who was bothered that i was unable to push the door open. The next day maintenance fixed it. The entire hotel needs to shut down for a year for an "EXTREME MAKE OVER"....... Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Tidewater Inn Sorry about your experience. First a note on the diner: it is a fifties style diner and the signs are professionally made to look "homemade". The sign you mentioned is meant to be something that you would find in a diner in the 50's and not an expression of how we feel. I did check your door and told you that I would have maintenance fix it as soon as possible. I had my husband come to your room to fix the door a short time later and we even purchased some clear curtains after you commented on the darkness. We did try to address every problem as it arose. We do have more updated rooms in the back, but the online special was for the economy rooms in the front.
"Nice pools they were clean. Room carpet dirty."
The beds hard and uncomfortable The pool and hot tub was fun.Genuine Expedia guest review
Friendly people but hotel is dated. No HD tv's. Beds weren't that comfortable and even hard. Place was clean however. Even though non- smoking hotel , people smoking outside their rooms and odor drifted into our room. Probably wont stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Simple but good"
We were not disappointed with our stay at the Tidewater Inn. I was a little afraid because of the low price of the room and having had some bad experiences at other places (around that price), but we were very happy with our stay. The room was spacious and very clean, the front desk was very friendly. We liked that they had 2 pools (indoor and outdoor) […] as well as a little playground in the back. The beds could have been more comfortable to my taste but we would definitely go there again! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Tidewater Inn Thank you for your review. We do have more updated rooms at a slightly higher price than the economy room you booked online. However, even though some rooms are more update and offer better views, all rooms are equally clean. Hope to see you again.
"Nice hotel good price"
Was happy with everything except the diner service. Good size room, 2 pools, close to many apps and activities.Genuine Expedia guest review
"very nice hotel"
we wante to stay longer and the owner was very accomodating letting stay in the room longerGenuine Expedia guest review
"In the middle of many attractions"
Rooms in the front part of the motel are very outdated. The box springs in the room were all full of stains. The vent in the bathroom was loaded with dust and the play area was full of feces of geese and you could not even walk there nor enjoy a picnic in that area.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect location, close to everything mid cape."
You can tell the owners care about their property. Neat, clean grounds,trimmed view of the bay,beautiful flowers and friendly staff. The office was exceptionally clean and beautifully decorated. Helen's diner and their staff were awesome! Made you feel at home and the food was great (along with the price)! Completely nostalgic and not at all tacky and […] run down!

"Too bad inside didnt look like outside"
Disappointed this time, was here several years ago but now rooms need new carpets, rooms smelled musty and wet until you sprayed with lysol and got the sliding doors open for awhile, that is if you were strong enough to open them without them falling off. Grounds are beautiful, wanted 3 rooms together for family but were way apart, even though there […] were empty rooms in between. Amentities are ok. Regarding price, should be a little cheaper, but you are at the cape, you get what you pay for. Not worth the price posted on the inside of the room, Diner food was good but took a LOOOONNGG time to get it. On a very busy street so it was difficult to get out of the parking lot at most times. Will probably look else where next time at Cape Cod. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We stayed 5 nights and we got a gray deal through Expedia would never have paid full price.Genuine Expedia guest review
I entered my room,a very mildo smell I over looked this,however I turned down the bed to discover stained and ripped sheets,the room was also dirty,we left this place quickly.beware I do not see how this place is rated so high as a 3.8 no way its a 1.5 at best.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Acceptable hotel, close to Hyannis"
Nice poiol, staff friendly and helpful; room shabby with dirty rug, was questioning if it had even been vacuumed from the last guests. Enjoyed sitting on the balcony overlooking the pool. Didn't spend much time there, so it worked out okay. Thought price a bit steep for the accomadations, but our activities were centered in Barnstable and Hyannis so […] location worked out well.

We really enjoyed staying here! It had two pools, the staff was friendly, it had swing sets & playgrounds for my child. It also had a barbarque area with picnic tables.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Ideal location and amenities for the area"
hotel was great for the price. A couple of things were dated such as the TVs in the room and the locks, wish they were key cards. The keys were difficult to use sometimes which can be annoying. The beds were slightly hard but on par with most hotel beds. Room was always cleaned well when we returned. Pool was nice, wish the hours were a bit longer for […] the indoor pool during the summer.

This is an older motel, but has been pretty well maintained. It has a nice outdoor and indoor pool. It also has a small diner to eat breakfast at, but it is only open for breakfast. The entire staff is very nice.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice family place"
We were happy with our stay. It was a very hot weekend (4th of July). The area was very busy and there was a lot of traffic in the area. They have a diner at the tidewater that was very good and reasonable. The pools were beautiful and refreshing.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Pretty good budget place"
I was looking for last moment deal and found this inn. Great place for the money considering how expensive everything is in West Yarmouth. We were mostly looking for place to crash for the night after exploring Cape Cod. Service staff are working super hard to make up for minor blemishes like dated look and furnishing, room and linen were clean and […] reception super helpful in response to our inquiries. Inn is well setup for family stay, has decent size playground. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

TVs need to be updated. Otherwise all has been maintained very well. Clean. Excellent service!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Retro motor-inn charm, mid-Cape"
This is not a modern, fancy place. They use keys instead of keycards, and there are plastic chairs and low tables outside every room so you can sit outside and enjoy the cool night air. It reminds me of motels my family would stay at in the 80s when I was a kid - although this one is cleaner and has nicer facilities than most of those motels. We stayed […] Tuesday through Thursday, right before the 4th of July, and had both indoor and outdoor pools almost to ourselves. The location is great - close to the ferries to Nantucket & Martha's Vineyard, as well as lots of restaurants, mini-golf, shopping, and beaches. We ate at the 50s-style Helen's Diner, which serves breakfast only, and has a fun retro decor. The room had an older tv - no flat-screens here. The beds and linens were comfy, but nothing fancy. The shower was a bit dark, but we weren't bothered by it. Overall, I found this place charming and comfortable & would definitely stay here again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Nice for the Price!"
I'm a hotel snob, always looking for the 4 stars at a 2 star price...but alas Cape Cod doesn't work that way. So I did my research and chose the highest rated hotel at a price of under $60. That was the Tidewater and I was well rewarded. It is early in the season so I didn't get to use the good looking, central. outdoor pool. Nor did I wander to see […] the indoor pool and sauna, this was a business trip after all. The room was clean and comfortable with twin/full beds, and well controlled air conditioning/heating. Maintenance was good at the beginning of the season. Small nitpicky things...the TV was small, the room was well cleaned with bleach which required me to let air out before I could tolerate the atmosphere and the full length porches provided a little extra noise as others moved to and from their rooms. I enjoyed my stay and thought it was a good deal. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
AC would only work if set at 64 degrees. Fan would not work only AC was in operation. Toilet backed up.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Nice older property. Friendly staff. Real Cape Cod feel to it but you can see it needs updating and some TLC. Bathrooms are old and have a bizarre enclosed tub/shower with an overhead cone. Grounds are pretty and the location is nice.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
From the moment we walked in we were impressed. Very attentive and polite staff. Very clean and attractive lobby. Very convenient location. Extremely well kept landscape, pool area. Only drawback was beds were hard, and paper-thin walls. Thank goodness the people in the next room were having a good time, because if they were arguing I would have complained, […] since it was 2 a.m. and you could hear their conversation, and laughter. I will still consider going back, price was extremely of great value. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Extended weekend in Cape Cod"
We wanted a conveniently located affordable hotel. Tidewater Inn matched all our expectations! We did have a couple issues, but were promptly resolved by the staff.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Large, clean room."
Overnight stay to attend conference. Chose because other comments said it was clean, pleasant, for a good rate; and they were right. An older Cape Cod facility but I liked the charm. Not a fancy, modern hotel. Would stay again but would bring my bathing suit.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"long way to be disappointed"
if you take a first floor room the noise from walking above keeps you awake. also the two keys are a hassle. does anyone still use real keys??? The carpeting is all scrunched up. the tv is a small projection in a huge piece of furniture. very disappointing for the $$$$Genuine Expedia guest review
