“Quaint, Great Location, Good Value”
Reviewed 5 January 2012

The Inn on the Square is in a great location in Falmouth: seconds from the Peter Pan Bus terminal, blocks from the bike path, blocks from downtown, and across the street from a great coffee joint. It is a good value for the location, especially during the summer. You will not be disappointed in the quaintness of the hotel. They have excellent service and genuine care about the guests. There is a good breakfast place on site as well.

However, don't expect tons of bells and whistles. It is a clean place and a good hotel.

Room Tip: If you want a very quiet room take a room at the end of the hall, as the floors can be a bit squeaky...

The Inn on the Square has a great location and some good features, but keep your expectations to a minimum. On the plus side, the room was clean and comfortable with a refrigerator and coffee maker, and wireless included. On the minus side, the night staff were clueless, toiletries provided are just ok, and the room was somewhat noisy with a lot of noise and light coming in from the hallway. On the whole I'd stay again but not for a special occasion or if we wanted a better standard.

I stayed here with my sister in November for 5 nights. It's a good base to explore the Cape. We were expecting a lovely country Inn and were slightly disappointed when shown to our room which didn't quite live up to expectation. On arrival we were politely told we could not check in until 3pm which turned out to be a blessing as we walked into town & found the Stone L'Oven Pizza Co. which serves the most fantastic pizza's & cookies. The Inn offers free car parking and free Wi-fi along with free DVD's. All the staff were helpful and very friendly, especially Cyrene. The room on the whole was OK, the beds were comfy. You are free to bring food and drink back to your room. Our room was close to the laundry room & a vent in the ceiling in the corridor so most mornings between 6.30am and 7am the vent made quite a bit of noise which wasn't ideal. We would stay at the Inn on the Square again if visiting Cape Cod and would recommend it to others for its location and friendly staff. Falmouth is a lovely quaint town, very worthy of a visit.

We were on the Cape back in October and were not sure where to stay since its been many years when we were there last. We wanted to stay near Wood Hole and driving by the Inn decided to take a chance. We were very please with our greeting and all the advice we received from Cyrene. She was working the front desk checked us in and gave us maps of the area and advice on different restaurants. We were very please with our spacious and comfy room. There is a good size fridge and mircrovave with washer/dryer accomidations if needed. Throughout our stay Cyrene was of great help with anything we needed always greeting us with a cherrie hello.

We would recommend this to anyone who wants to be neat the ferry to Martha's Vineyard and to Hyannis. We love the Cape and hope to return there soon.

We stayed at the Inn on the Square in mid-October to attend a nearby wedding. The rate was competitive with other hotels in the area. No problems booking or checking in. They offer free wi-fi, which worked without an issue. The room was adequate, and the mini refrigerator/microwave combo was a nice feature.

I agree with other reviewers that the walls are very thin. We were in an end room on the first floor, and could clearly hear our neighbors (and their upset children) through the walls, as well as the exterior door slamming shut. Just make sure you bring ear plugs. We also had some trouble with our key cards, they were deactivated three times during our 2 night stay. This may have been an isolated incident, but it was a little annoying to have to go to the reception desk every time we returned to the room.

Great central location in Falmouth, a short walk from the main town area with shops and restaurants, and a slightly longer walk to the beach.
