We knew this was not a high end Inn but what we got was horrendous. The office was closed upon arrival, there is an outside phone to contact the night manager. However there were no wipes or hand sanitizer in sight, did not feel comfortable with that. During check in an additional $100 was held on our credit card, did not see the need for that as the first night stay was prepaid. When we got to our "king" size room the bathroom was tiny with no sink, that was located across from the bathroom next to the open closet. There was no microwave so we could not reheat our takeout food which was the only option for food that night. The room was extremely dusty, not good for my allergies but so glad we had clorox wipes. No remote control for TV but the worse was when we pulled back the sheets, there was a stain on the bottom sheet! We tried to use the room phone to contact the manager but it did not work, we tried calling using our phones but no answer. Our only option was to get dressed, go back to the outside office phone except it was midnight and after a long journey we just wanted to sleep. In the morning we decided to check out, we gave a written list of why and requested a full refund. The desk person said we would not be charged for the cancelled night but the refund for the first night would be at the discretion of the owner. 6 days later we had to call as no one had reached out. The owner did not care, said we should have requested a room change and offered a discount on the room taxes for the 1st night only. We would not recommend this Inn to our worst enemy.

Room was adequate but not stellar. Due to Covid 19, the diner is not in service which was not communicated during booking or upon arrival. Door numbers for rooms in the 90s are not posted, so we drove around quite a bit before another guest told us this. The shower mechanism was outdated and bathroom doorknob was falling apart. Beds were comfortable and the deck with water view was very pleasant. Having the small refrigerator in the room was also a plus. No maid service for room, also due to Covid. If your looking for upscale for less money, I wouldn't stay here. If you dont care and want to keep to a budget, this inn will work.

Our family vacation to Disney was put on hold due to the Pandemic. After search/reading review for a mini get away we decided to take our chances on The Tidewater water in. From the moment we checked in it smelled clean. All staff wore masks. There was hand sanitizer available at the front desk and the air smelled fresh and cleaned. We rented the Family Suite which was the perfect size for my family of five with plenty of room to move about. The room we had overlooked the pool and the property. Both outdoor and indoor pool’s were opened although we used the outdoor pool only. Property is within walking distance to a breakfast diner as the one attached to the hotel was closed. Next door was a mini-golf place with ice cream bar which my kids loved. Short drive to Various beaches and Main Street. Overall an excellent experience, would absolutely recommend and my kids are already asking when can we go back!!

This is not a 5 star place to stay. That being said, this is a family run, clean, warm, comfortable, family and budget friendly accommodation. We stayed at the Tidewater Inn because of a contest in which we had won a two night stay by guessing the number of lights and ornaments on their Christmas tree. So, hubby and I spent a lovely weekend on the cape. When we arrived, we were greeted by Charles who was very kind and friendly, He explained where to find our room and gave us breakfast tickets for the morning. Our room was located in the back rear building on the second floor. The room was a King with a quaint water view. Across the parking lot there is an inlet with Adirondack chairs to sit and enjoy on a warmer day. There was a swan paddling about. Someone from the staff was kind enough to go into the room beforehand and set the heat making the room warm when we entered. It was 17 degrees outside, so we appreciated the thoughtfulness very much. The room was dated but well kept, warm and comfortable.There was a small outdoor balcony, a bathroom with everything we needed, a refrigerator and basic cable television. There were other guests staying but we didn't hear any noise during our stay. In the morning, breakfast was included at their 50's diner from 6 am to 9 am. This staff member was also very kind. We had 5 items to choose from including eggs, bacon or sausage, homefries, toast, juice coffee, pancakes (plain or with blueberries), an omelet, a breakfast sandwich, cereal, etc. Suffice to say, there was something for everyone. We helped ourselves to coffee and the breakfast was made to order. Within the same building, there was a large indoor pool. I'm sure a family could enjoy it very much. The cost of the room (off season) was $69.00 which included breakfast and the indoor pool, a definite family friendly vacation on a budget. We would like to thank the staff at the Tidewater Inn for being so kind and thoughtful during our stay. We wish you the best.

Hotel was very clean and bed was incredibly comfortable! The location was great and close to many shops and restaurants. Breakfast offered was ok, but the hours are too early, 6-9 a.m. Maybe extend to at least 10:00. Hallway air fresheners are overpowering and need to go. Indoor Pool was clean and in good repair, there were plenty of towels and water was warm. Loved the personal balcony/patio for each room. It was a beautiful weekend and we were able to open the slider for some fresh air and sunshine. Our room also had a great view of a little bay. We will definitely visit again!
