Courtyard Cape Cod Hyannis
Travel Blogs from Hyannis
We have had a couple of down days.
Highlights included finding a pair of fresh water lakes in the Nickerson National Park which helped as we have discovered they are having a bit of a shark problem on the cape!
Brush with the law- went to ...
... a pot of krill. Really caught our interest and passed the time.
The first whale was spotted way off the normal track and when we got to the feeding ground we had 7-9 whales feeding. I am v proud of James' video that he took and have included it with some ropey stills. Also great views of the lighthouses and dunes. We were all really aware of being caught on the wrong side of the boat. We also had three "full breaches" the classic hunchback up and out of the water but ...
... and reburied (unmarked) elsewhere in the cemetery due to the number of people visiting and partying at his gravesite. Large portions of the island, which are in private ownership, have covenants on them to ensure that they are not subdivided or over developed. One of these is a 330 acre block now owned by Caroline Kennedy. The property was bought for her mother, then Jackie Onassis, in the early 1970s by Aristotle Onassis for $1.3 million to ensure Jackie's privacy when ...
Woke up to a blistering hot sun and a cooling breeze. Explored the basement and found deck chairs, beach umbrella and a purple inflatable so headed for the beach at the end of the road- took the car for ease of kit transport.
Fairly eventful as breeze at our house equates to gale on the beach. Lost deck chair, inflatable and wrap up the beach. In the end realised everyone else was land anchoring kit. Ruth had first shark bite- well ok she fell on an underwater rock that had ...
... the waters to catch whales. He would fling them against the cliffs to kill them and then cook them over his fire providing the Wampanoag with food. Bloods from the whales stained the cliffs red and coals from Moshup's fire accounted for the black. Frequent fog in the area is considered to be smoke from Moshup's pipe- a sign of Moshup's happiness with his people. Before we came back to Oak Bluffs we completed our circuit which brought us past a B&B that ...

Kids had fun at the courtyard
Good hotel, staff friendly, room clean, the kids loved the pool.
The Cape is notorious for it's small, old and sometimes dirty hotel rooms. What a wonderful surprise to find this new, well maintained, clean, friendly hotel. Our room was spotless, roomy, and smelled fresh. The bathroom was also nice. There are no luxurious upgrades, but everything you really need in a hotel room is provided. And, another surprise was the complementary coffee and tea in the spacious lobby where you can watch tv while waiting for friends, or just talk to the extremely helpful staff who know the area well and are happy to give advice and directions to attractions and restaurants. The price was reasonable for this area and the hotel was well worth it, especially when compared to others on the Cape that are more expensive and less nice. For example, during this trip, we left the Courtyard to go to a conference at the Sea Crest in Falmouth. What a disappointment it was. It was old and poorly maintained. The bathroom was too small. And it cost over one hundred dollars more a night than the Courtyard. So, if you are going to Hyannis and don't want luxury, just a nice, clean, well maintained friendly hotel, stay at the Courtyard.
My wife and I recently stayed here for one night during a quick trip to Cape Cod. We found the property to be clean, quiet and near many places to eat, and righ next to a large mall (my wife liked that). I liked the free internet access and the ability to park our car close to our room. The hotel in not close to the water which I suppose would be a downside during the "season". But we were there on a cold day and being away from the water seemed fine with us. I'd give it a consideration if you are looking for a predictable place to stay.
I stayed at the Courtyard by Marriott last November based on the reviews posted here. I cancelled 2 other reservations - also based on the reviews I read here. I have to say that it is getting more and more difficult to find affordable, decent, clean lodgings on Cape Cod.
Enjoyed the Marriott Courtyard
We had a wonderful stay at the Marriott Courtyard. The hotel was spotless. It's staff was very helpful and it was convenient to ferries, shopping, dining, etc. I would suggest courtyard side of hotel, I believe it is more quiet. Every room I am told, now has a refrigerator and microwave, ours did. I found this very helpful.
We plan to stay there again, soon.
Courtyard Marriott Very Nice!
We're staying at the Courtyard now, connected through their free internet access. This hotel really is a delightful surprise. It feels like it's been recently renovated. Everything is well lit and tastefully decorated. Our room overlooks the courtyard, and has a nice window seat next to a window that actually opens. The hotel is conveniently located next to a mall, which appears to have a Sears, Filene's and a large Barnes and Noble. It's a quick ride to the ferries out to Nantucket and Martha's Vinyard. I would definitely recommend the Courtyard Marriott as a nice place to stay in Hyannis.
A wonderful surprise
We recently stayed at the Marriott Courtyard in Hyannis as a last resort. What a wonderful surprise. The rate was great. The rooms were big, spacious and clean. Everything looks sparkling clean and recently renovated. For some reason I was even delighted that the hallways were wide and well lit (rather than the usual crowded and dingy tunnels). We had quite a nice little breakfast buffet with eggs and sausage, etc in the morning, a nice change from stale muffins and donuts at some hotels. This hotel is located next to a zillion malls and outlets so if you are a shopaholic this place is for you. It is not near any beaches or scenic areas, so you will have to get about by car.
What a nice hotel. It was extremely clean and the staff was very polite and helpful. We had trouble with the key when we arrived, but front desk clerk attended to the problem right away. My son used the pool and liked it a lot. I'd stay at this hotel again.
