Stopped on a whim, enjoyed delicious Thai-glazed salmon and a glass of Malbec. We also had an appetizer. Total for dinner was under $50. Very enjoyable. Did not stay at the hotel, so can't offer any advice there.

My husband and I spent a long weekend staying at the Inn during August. While it was a little pricey, that's what you get for booking a weekend on the Cape during peak summer season. Our room was comfortable and clean, but on the small side...I'm glad we had nice weather so we could spend a lot of time out...

We stayed in Room 4 hoping we'd have an encounter with the resident ghost, Hannah. She came through and paid us a visit! My daughters were thrilled and it was a trip that we'll never forget.

As a frequent visitor to Orleans, the Orleans Inn is a consistent destination for our family. We love a table on the back deck, overlooking the town cove. It's just a lovely pleasant place to sit and have a drink and a nice meal. The menu isn't fancy, but the food is good. There is a good variety for folks...

It rained Friday so we went shopping. After passing the Orleans Waterfront in many many times decided to stop for lunch. Lovely place with a local harbor view. Because it was raining we ate in the bar overlooking the water. Service is good, chowder is good and crab-cake good. Nice place for a couple. Will stop by again.

Whenever I go to the Cape we stay at the Orleans Inn. It's great to stay in a family owned in where the owners are always there to make sure your stay is as good as it can be. Ed, Erin and Megan always make us feel like we're a part of their family. What more could you ask for?

Four of us decided to go to the Inn for dinner and sit on the outside deck rather than inside. Views of the bay, boats and fowl were wonderful as was the food and service. There are really no bad seats but if you get there early enough, you might be able to get a table closer to the water....
