Last year, I spent over 160 days on the road. With that schedule, the best surprise is no surprise. EXCEPT, when it comes to the Inn on Onset Bay. It was recommended by a business colleague who knows my affinity for the consistency of Hampton, HI-E, and Courtyard. The owners are cordial, helpful and clearly care about setting and fulfilling high standards. I, and my fellow travelers in the railroad business, stay here as often as possible. When on The Cape's west end, or around Wareham, Middleboro, and Bourne, this ought to be your lodging choice.

Room Tip: The ground level rooms, those leading off of the expansive front porch, are the best for ease of access and views.

We needed a last-minute room and were able to get one of the newly renovated queen bed rooms. It felt new and was very clean. The owners suggested a restaurant up the road and even offered to keep our leftovers in their fridge in the lobby. But, they took it a step further by picking up a fridge from a vacant room and bringing it to our room. We got in late and left rather early, but we were happy with our stay...a little more money than we wanted to spend just for a place to sleep, but we were pleasantly surprised by our experience. We would go back for sure!

My experience with the Inn at Onset Bay was just more than I could have ever expected. I had reserved a cottage for a so called meeting place for the 11 or so rooms booked by our friends for my wedding...we are local to the area and rather than entertaining our guests at our home the cottage on their premisis was an awesome option.

Cheryl was so accomidating to our needs. She allowed us to check in as early as i wanted and was even nicer to let us check out later than the usual check out due to the fact she had nobody in the room the Friday before. She is very laid back and easy going, and just a nice person.

The Inn is charming and I am a Falmouth girl and this Inn has "Good ol' Cape Cod" written all over it....this Inn is charming, nothing over the top fancy, comfortable, and in the best Onset location. Onset is a walking town and this location couldn't be better. Walk to breakfast, Marc Anthonys(famous pizza), our local restaurants(Stonebridge Bistro) and the best fish fry in the summer and the Point Independance Yhat club which is open to the public on Fridays through the summer....What else can I say, this is the place you want to stay if you're coming to Onset. You can park your car and not drive til you leave.

On another note, I'm sad to say that the other Inn right down the street "inn at point Independence" was a very bad experience...I generally am very easy to please, however, I had rented a room for getting ready for my wedding with my friends. I had to rent the room for 2 days and when I checked in with my 2 friends and a makeup artist the room was very hot, we opened the windows and kept the room door open. The owner apparentley felt we were talking too loud and came up to our room, scolded us and slammed the door. I was beside myself as a business owner myself I would never treat someone in this manner. I was embarassed in front of my friends. I actually went down to the front desk and had words with the owner, I let her know that she needed to work on her approach with her patrons and told her that she was out of line. She then defended her behavior by telling me that our voices were traveling and disturbing "everyone" however there were no guests at the inn and I know this because there wasn't one car in the parking lot and she had already asked me if she "wanted me " to put out breakfast because everyone was gone. This place left me with a very BAD taste in my mouth.

I wanted to let people know the difference in my experiences with both inns in case you were trying to decide which place to stay....enjoy Onset its a wonderful village!!

Room Tip: I like the cottage because its near the outdoor courtyard and if you have a group staying at the Inn its a great meeting spot. Also, the cottage is pet friendly ...

We booked a room for 4 of us to stay in. When we got there Cheryl said she moved us to a room on the first floor. This made the trip so much more enjoyable with our 2 year old. The room was beautiful with a small efficiency kitchen and bath. The room was larger than I imagined. The small courtyard was right out of our door. I cannot say enough about how nicely we were treated. More like old friends. I would recommend this place to any body going to Onset.

Room Tip: Room 105 is the largest and worth every penny

We needed a spur of the moment place to stay as we were having renovations done at our home. The first time I called to make reservations, the owner, Cheryl gave us the cottage room at their Inn. Just a day before, the contractors switched it up on me, and I had to call to cancel at the last minute. Cheryl was very understanding and allowed us to cancel and rebook for the next week. The cottage is small, clean, has everything you need for small meals or breakfast. The bed was very comfortable and the air conditioning worked great - it was very hot that week and we had no issues. Beautiful beach across the street, great view from in the room. We enjoyed the courtyard area in the afternoons. There was a grill there for cooking if you were so inclined. This is not a four star hotel, but they don't pretend to be. This is clean, reasonable, and the owners are great.
