Shoreway Acres Inn

Cape Cod, New England

The hotel

If you're looking for an authentic Cape Cod experience, then Shoreway Acres Inn is the place to be. This friendly, third-generation, family-run resort is set in acres of lawns interspersed with elm trees in the heart of historic Falmouth Village. This secluded location offers respite from the everyday bustle yet is just a short walk from Main Street and the beach with pretty views of Martha's Vineyard and Nobska Lighthouse. The Inn began as the nine-room Worthington House, a sea captain's home dating back to 1806. It expanded to include three more historic homes and two traditional hotel lodges, giving the Inn 80 rooms set in a nostalgic atmosphere. ShoreWay Acres’ family and staff are dedicated to keeping the Inn’s rich history and tradition alive for generations to come.

Just recently stayed with family, so we had 4 rooms. This is a old Inn. Great location, can walk to town. Staff is friendly and polite. One member of party had to go back to front desk and change room because the room they gave them wasn't cleaned yet. Rooms varied. We had two rooms in the bldg with the pool.

Just recently stayed with family, so we had 4 rooms. This is a old Inn. Great location, can walk to town. Staff is friendly and polite. One member of party had to go back to front desk and change room because the room they gave them wasn't cleaned yet. Rooms varied. We had two rooms in the bldg with the pool. Large, clean (except one had lots of mold on one section of the ceiling that was coming down in flakes), hard wood floors (I like no carpeting), fridge, microwave, coffee/tea, iron/board, hairdryer. Bed is very soft, but comfortable, all white linens. One room had two doors to enter, with two rooms and a shared bathroom. Very cramped. Just enough room to walk around the bed in one of the rooms, the other had a little more room. Carpet was old. Shower ended up with black in the standing area after a few showers. Last room had two doors to enter, two rooms, two bathrooms. I went to the front desk to tell them about the mold and the staff wrote it down and said they would tell management. I didn't expect much as they were booked and I was only there 3 nights and didn't figure out where the black mess on the table was coming from until the 2nd day. I at the very least expected a call. I hope they fix that issue. I don't know that I would stay here again because of the mold. Mostly because they didn't even contact me about the issue. No one else had mold, but the shower floor turning black isn't great either. I will be back in Falmouth often as I have family there, but I will look into other properties instead of going back here. Since we were visiting family I can't comment on the property other than the rooms as we basically just showered and slept here. Read less

Although in a good location, the room was lacking in other ways. It was a standard outdated motel room with a very comfy bed. I booked because it advertised breakfast included. COVID apparently caused them to stop their hot breakfast, and no other options were made available. Check-in was efficient and unfriendly. It was pricey for what we needed… Read more
Although in a good location, the room was lacking in other ways. It was a standard outdated motel room with a very comfy bed. I booked because it advertised breakfast included. COVID apparently caused them to stop their hot breakfast, and no other options were made available. Check-in was efficient and unfriendly. It was pricey for what we needed (without the hot breakfast) The only issue we had was a fallen ceiling tile in our room which was taken care of when we reported it. The area was convenient to downtown Falmouth. Read less

Wonderful comfy bed and immaculate rooms. Jim the office attendant is personable and professional!! So close to everything like the ferry to martha's vineyard and Nantucket. However it just needs some updated. But you can't beat the price!! Thanks Jim!!!

The hotel is steps away from the Main Street and all shopping and dinning, minutes away from the beach and very close to Martha’s Vineyard ferry parking lot. The room is outdated, yet clean and very spacious.
