My wife and I had the opportunity to stay here for two nights recently as a gift from our two children as part of our Mom's day/dad's day gifts. The staff that we encountered were friendly. The hotel itself is a throwback to a few decades ago and typical of what you would find on the cape or in any... More

Thank you for your review. We do have rooms with one king bed and wish you had requested one at arrival. The diner is a favorite with our guests and it's convenient for our guests to not have to leave early in the morning for breakfast. Hope to see you again...in a room with a king bed. More

Lovely relaxing place, we were lucky and got a good view. Things were a bit dated (particularly the bathroom suite) but anyone realistic in their booking can see that this is a nice place with good facilities and a good location and offers great value. I should note that whilst it was dated it was clean. The owners clearly take... More

My wife and I stayed for three days. Although our room was dated it was nice and clean. Great space and the beds were comfortable. Route 28 is very easy to get around on but very busy and slow. There is good sightseeing all around and plenty of restaurants close by. We would definitely come again, it's good value for... More

I love your title, "authentic Cape Cod". Even though we are a bit dated, I also call the Tidewater a Cape Cod experience! We try to offer clean, comfortable accommodations at an affordable price. Hope to see you again at the Tidewater. More

For the past 15+ years with the exception of a few, we have stayed at the Tidewater Inn for one night before leaving by ferry the next day for Nantucket. We chose it originally because of the price. We have seen upgrades along the way- painting, WIFI, updating to the rooms etc. Our room has always been very clean. We... More

We love our "regulars" and appreciate that you pick the Tidewater to begin your Nantucket vacation. You are right that we need to fix the awning and hope to do it this year. It blew off during one of the storms and we just neglected to replace it. Hope to have it fixed before your return to the Tidewater. You... More

I stayed here with my family and it was a nice place to stay with family. First, you must stay in the updated rooms in the back. Everything looks very clean and well-kept.

I chose the Tidewater Inn based on a reasonable price, and the fact that there was no minimum stay on a weekend. My party was 3 adults and 1 child. I booked a room with two double beds. The room was standard motel fare. There was a fridge which I wasn't sure it would have, along with coffee maker which... More

Yes, the hotel is older, but our room was very clean and the staff very friendly and helpful with tourist information. In fact, our room appeared to have been painted recently and the carpet also looked fairly new. Unlike another poster here, we did not consider the location to be in a "shabby part of town." Instead, we felt that... More

5 mins away from Kalmus Beach & downtown Hyannis. Grounds are well kept. 2 beautiful pools. Motel is dated but very well maintained. Wasn't really crazy about Helen's Diner. Try Keltic Kitchen right down the road. We enjoyed our stay & will definately be back.
