We booked a room with a king size bed for two nights. It was clean, plenty of room in spite of the larger bed and was very well maintained. When we checked in the current owners (about 10 months) asked if we would mind if the cleaning of the room before our second night until about 4:00 PM, explaining they...

This was our second time here. The room was clean but the beds need new mattress and the pillows were flat as pancakes! Rooms are comfortable. Have not been in busy season but rate off season reasonable. You can hear outside noise very easily.

I stayed here in April of 2017 and paid $94/night for two nights for a queen bed room. Add tax, subtract the 10% off as advertised on Trip Advisor and the total was $185.62. By the way, I had to fight for the 10% off as advertised on Trip Advisor. When I got there on a Friday, they were not...

Amish P, Owner at Handkerchief Shoals Inn, responded to this review

Sorry to hear that you weren't satisfied with some aspects of your visit with us. We did mention to all our guests that we'd be out that one day due to family reasons for a one off event (we also aren't fully staffed in the first week of April) and everyone staying that day including you were fine with it...

I stay here annually for 1-3 nights per visit depending on the weather and the fishing conditions. Clean room, quiet, off the highway setting with a pool, a great value and centrally located near the cape just west of Chatham.

In a fairly expensive neighborhood, this was a pretty good deal. Though it's an old-style motel, the decor was actually quite tasteful (even the picture on the wall!). The furnishings and bathroom had a touch of style about them. The beds were comfortable; the AC and wifi worked well; and everything was clean. Check-in and check-out took seconds.

Had a one night stay on a business trip in early December. The room was immaculate, and the owners were very nice and helpful. Had everything I needed. Comfortable bed, microwave, refrigerator, free wifi and cable TV. Perfect respite after a long trip. Booked two more trips in later December. Owners are very helpful and the place is updated beautifully....

This is my favorite place to stay when I am visiting Cape Cod. The family who runs it are lovely and helpful, and the location is perfect for me. Rooms are clean (spotless) and comfortable. I am delighted to hear that they will now be open in the off-season.

We came to the Cape to visit family in July and our stay at the Handkerchief Shoals Inn was perfect. It is a very simple, quiet inn and very neat and clean. The owners are friendly and eager to make sure visitors are satisfied. We liked the option of the continental breakfast where we could get a cup of coffee...

We had 10 people stay here, rooms were spacious and clean, the bathrooms were brand new and decorated tastefully. Great location to see any of the sights in the area. The new owners were very nice. We all will be definitely returning 2017.
