Default Cape Cod, places to stay.

Thinking of a quick get away, what is a good hotel to stay a weekend close to shopping and food? Never been up there so don't know where to start, thanks guys!

I think you will have to narrow down the area a bit and what you are looking for. the cape goes form Ptwon to Plymouth. Are you boating up or driving?

Ptown - Great boating area- but if you are not open minded it may be uncomfortable. Great food, a bit of shopping and decent hotels
Chatham- Quiet, small down town, caters to an upper class clientele
Hyanis is more like a typical urban area. It lost it cape feel along time ago

the other part is the timing and costs- a place like Chatham bars inn can run 300 a night and up, way up

I would suggest Chatham, I've been going there for the last 40 years. There are a lot of restaurants, shops and places to stay.

How about Sandwich. Moderate price to stay is the Dan'l Webster Inn,https://www.danlwebsterinn.com/?keyw...ent=Inn%20Name - could hit the Heritage Museum and Gardens to see their 100 acres of grounds plus, car museum, American Folk Art Museum, windmill, American history museum all in one place. https://heritagemuseumsandgardens.or...orage-tour-13/
Sandwich is also close to the Cahoon Art Museum, https://cahoonmuseum.org/ Cotuit Center for the Arts, https://artsonthecape.org/ Regatta Restaurant.....

Stayed here a few years ago... The bartenders were using binoculars - asked them why - said juvenile Great Whites would swim in the channel and you could see them at times..

Pretty cool ... and nice place

Might check out the Poppenesset Inn. It is a resort, Between Falmouth and Hyannis in Mashpee. They have little houses there for rent. Their little marketplace area has stuff for kids to do, raw bar, $40 lobster rolls, icea cream, pizza, mini golf, etc. If you are bringing kids this would be a fun place.

Wequassett Resort and Golf Club is stunning and the food and drink are exceptional. The only downside is the place is pricey, but it is right on the water. and close to Chatham and Orleans.

All of the other recommendations look much better than staying in Hyannis. I'd lean toward the Sandwich and Mashpee and venture out from there.

Wouldn't recommend Hyannis. Chatham Bars and Wequasett are both gorgeous, but will run $800/night in season.

Sandwich and Falmouth offer some decent options at more reasonable price points. There is a new boutique hotel, Aiden, in Yarmouth opening soon.

Ocean Edge a viable option in Brewster on CCB side.

The Hampton Inn in West Yarmouth is reasonably price and centrally located.

I am biased as I have stayed in Orleans when a child and also on honeymoon and with family and friends after that. We always rented a house though.
I would also look at Wellfleet, there is less happening than other spots but it has a couple good restaurants. Keep in mind you can drive from P-town to Chatham in less than an hour.

Unless you are a city person I would avoid Hyannis.

FOr a quick get-away I would not stay in Hyannis, many better options.

We stayed at the Chatham Inn about 2 years ago. The location was great and it was a very nice inn. I'll stay there again next time we go to Cape Cod.
