My wife and I were to stay here on our honeymoon in 2000. We didn’t stay more than
30 minutes. We made an excuse that we had to leave in a hurry and were willing to lose money.He did refund our second night at least.
Old decrepit room with no locks and gaps in the door jam. Definitely a creepy vibe to this place. I can see that some travelers find this a great oasis,but from the negative reviews,I can see it hasn’t changed much.
E had an absolutely wonderfully relaxing weekend. Webstay d in the Rabbit Room, so-called because of the themed decorations. Our Innkeeper, Mr. Bill Putman was a wonderful and knowledgeable host, with everything from which restaurants to go to, places to see, and directions to all, The inn itsl f was charming, as my husband and I both live off New England inns. “Wine Hour” each evening provided a nice time to relax and chat wit other guests before going out for dinner. All in al, a fantastic fall weekend.
First let me say the Inn is very unique and eclectic in decor. We were in room #10 that almost had a cabin feel rather than just a room. The place is very clean and pet friendly.
Bill the Innkeeper is very welcoming and goes out of his way to make you feel that this is "your home away from home".
The Inn is centrally located on the Cape (so very convenient) and we stayed there for 5 nights, We traveled the entire Cape Cod area, Newport RI, and Nantucket.
New England is beautiful and Bill is a wealth of knowledge on the entire New England area ---Telling us what to see, suggesting where we should go each day with maps and informative handouts.
Bill THANK YOU for making our stay enjoyable
Damp room with ooh la la cat smell from 20 or so cats.....bed sunk to the floor, springs were so bad....ran out of hot water in the very DARK bathroom (lights were terribly inadequate at best). Mosquitoes because we couldn't shut the doors to the outside. Everything in the house is dusty, if you have allergies, stay away!
The place is kind of creepy. The owner is kind of creepy. He follows you around talking. The food is meh, rubbery sausages, go out.
There are a lot better buys for your money. Even ones that allow pets. And don't let your dog cry or bark or he'll come talk to you some more.
Simmons Inn was the perfect place to enjoy the Cape and visit Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket. My girlfriend and I spend 4 nights at the Inn and were immediately impressed by Bill Putnam's energy, enthusiasm and kindness. In fact from the moment we booked a room Bill provided helpful travel tips and also agreed to meet us at Hyannis Transportation Centre, which was very helpful of him (particularly as the timing of our trip changed at the last minute).
The Inn itself is charming with good sized, clean rooms. Bill cooks a mean breakfast every morning so it is worth getting up for those. The Inn is probably a 10-15 minute walk to the centre of town (even less if you have a car). It is very close to the beach and to Hyannis Port and the Kennedy compound.
Bill provides extremely useful information on activities to do in Hyannis as well as the best way to explore the Cape, Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket. He clearly enjoys hosting people and meant that he was always eager to offer help and advice - including on local restaurants and bars. He even has his own, personalised guides for Hyannis, other towns on the Cape and Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket. These are invaluable if you only have a short period of time exploring each.
We would highly recommend Simmons Inn and are already considering when to return!
P.s. you have to check out "Toad Hall" and Bill's fantastic collection of classic cars!
