We booked this hotel for a friends wedding in the area. The staff was very friendly, welcoming, and helpful. Our room was very cute and clean. The "ocean view" is a bit deceiving in the particular room that we were in 102. I mean, you could see the ocean technically if you looked to the right out of the door,...

My husband and I recently stayed at the Inn on Onset Bay, it was wonderful. Our room was cozy and comfy and our view was TO DIE FOR! I could not believe the view for the price we paid.

I stayed in this inn for the first time a few weeks ago and had a wonderful experience! I was greeted at the registration desk with warmth and was given my key and directions, (in the form of a map and arrows), on how to get to my room. I was told that I will be staying in the "Princess...

Quaint inn. Located across the street from the beach. Beautiful views of the water. Calm and scenic. Would have appreciated nicer bathroom amenities. The staff was nice but had limited knowledge of things to do in the vicinity. Otherwise clean and comfortable.

My boyfriend and I decided to stay in Onset after having a beautiful day on the beach and found availability at Inn on Onset Bay. I made the reservation sight unseen from the beach.

The building could used some up keep. The check in was around back and did not leave you feeling like it was going to be a good stay. The staff was friendly. Our room was upstairs.

I just returned from a 9 night stay at the Inn on Onset Bay and could not have been happier! The Inn is located right in Onset Village and across the street from Onset Beach...a perfect location to soak up some sun during the day, but also an easy walk to several restaurants for meals. The Inn Keepers, Cheryl and...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Inn on Onset Bay sits atop the bluffs in the village of Onset, a seaside community nestled on the west end of the Cape Cod Canal. Once a popular vacation destination for travelers the world over, Onset has become one of Cape Cod's "hidden treasures" with beautiful views, breathtaking sunrises and a place where serene beaches and quiet nights welcome visitors to step back in time. All of our rooms have private baths, air conditioning, flat screen tv's, hair dryers, iron and ironing boards. Many have kitchenettes with compact refrigerators, and microwaves. Please note that we DO NOT allow any cooking. We offer coffee and tea in the morning and a barbecue grill for use in our court yard.
