Innkeeper-of-sorts Bill is the sort of host all innkeepers and hoteliers should aspire to be. Encyclopedically knowledgeable about all things Hyannis AND Cape Cod, he provides invaluable guidance on how to best spend one’s time. The setting is also superb, in a quiet enclave away from the teeming town.

Finding a bed and breakfast which is pet friendly and afford can be difficult. I was so pleased to find one on Cape Cod. Simmons is an old inn on a lovely piece of property where you can exercise your dog. The innkeeper, Bill, is the perfect host. He has owned the inn for over 30 years and can suggests options on your vacation plans. The inn is full of various collections of Bill and his late wife and viewing all would be a half day worth. I love quirky so was delighted with the inn but if you are a 4 or 5 stars traveler do not chose this inn. I loved the breakfast which Bill cooks but it is standard fare.

An extraordinary host
Bill Putman, "the Innkeeper of Sorts" had a wealth of useful knowledge about the vacation delights of Cape Cod. He was very attentive to our needs and full of enthusiasm. He made us feel as though we were part of his family, while he made certain we could relax and enjoy our experience. .

4/10 Fair

No Locks in Hyannis
Great place to stay for those who miss their old Gran's place in the summer, crave the company of cats, have excellent eye sight (tv is tiny and 12ft across the room) and/or find their height of decor fashions at Michael's. Very pleasant inn keeper who does not believe in door locks. There are none at all and that is a bit creepy. While I had no problems I did take my valuables with me during the day and felt very uncomfortable when unseen folks came and went at night. I was told I was the only guest though they must be renting out rooms long term to boarders. The place is desperately in need of updating though the bed I slept in was pretty comfortable and the shower was hot, however, the coffee was not. Oh, and the inn keeper is loath to pay the credit card fee, asked for a check which i didn't have with me and seems to be having issues with the Google Wallet payment I sent him. No way was I carrying cash there with zero security.

Things were fine. Nothing spectacular, but nothing to complain about. Due to timing on our part we were unable to take advantage of viewing the car museum
