Deciding Between A Hotel And A Vacation Rental?

When you visit us on the Cape, you have many options for lodging: resorts, hotels, motels, inns and rental homes. Choosing what works best for you depends on a lot. However, if you’re trying to get away from it all and take a true vacation, staying at a hotel, inn, or resort will help you do exactly that. We want you to have a carefree vacation! Here’s why we recommend you choose from one of the many Chatham hotels when you visit the Cape:

Hotel Linens

Whether you took a plane, train or automobile, there’s nothing like crawling into bed for a rest after you get to your destination. The best part? You didn’t have to pack the sheets and blankets, make space for them in the car, unpack them and make your bed when you arrived. The next day you can explore Chatham beaches, go for a bike ride on the Rail Trail and get back to your freshly made bed!


This brings us to daily housekeeping service. When you get to your Cape Cod rental – it will be clean for you, but that’s it. The rest of the time you are on your own. Why not take a vacation from cleaning, and let our staff clean up the room, make the bed, tidy your bathroom, and clean the kitchen? You can do all that for yourself (and your family!) when you get back home.

Stay As Long As YOU Want

A vacation rental usually requires a minimum stay of seven days, and it doesn’t matter whether you’ll be there the whole time or not. Staying at a Chatham inn or hotel gives you the flexibility to stay for a weekend or a midweek stay; you only pay for the nights you need the room. Not only do we not require you stay the whole week, our Chatham inn even has specials for those who can make it for only a few days. This is particularly useful if you’re in town for a wedding and won’t need to stay longer than a few nights.

Need A Kitchen? Choose Chatham MA Hotel Rooms With Kitchenettes!

Whether you enjoy barbecuing and cooking on vacation or you want to stay out of restaurants to save money, a rental with a kitchen is not your only choice. It’s easy to find Chatham hotels that have rooms with private kitchens. Eating out is not necessarily a requirement when you vacation at a hotel in Chatham. Save money, save the hassle and enjoy a meal in one of our rooms equipped with a kitchenette.

Going to the Beach or the Pool? You’ll Need Towels

Some vacation rentals provide a supply of towels when you arrive, and they may have a washer and dryer in the unit. Most require you lugging them along with you from home. If you stay at a Chatham hotel or inn, our housekeepers supply you daily with fresh towels that you do not have to launder. No more deciding if that beach or pool towel is clean enough to use after your shower – you can use a fresh one without a second thought.

Access To A Pool

Speaking of the pool, most rentals won’t give you access to one or will charge you a fee to use an owner’s pool. If you don’t want to head out to one of our beautiful Cape Cod Beaches on your trip; choose a Chatham Hotel with a pool and make your vacation even more care free and relaxing. Walk out of your room, lounge by the pool and take a swim if you like. (Bonus: Our pool is heated!)
