A Cape Cod hotel was recently named the second-best bargain hotel in America and one of the top bargain hotels in the world by TripAdvisor users.
The Escape Inn in South Yarmouth ranked No. 2 on TripAdvisor’s list of top 25 bargain hotels in the U.S. as part of the travel website’s 2019 Travelers’ Choice Awards, released last week. It was beat out only by The Trails Inn in Eureka Springs, Arkansas, which nabbed the No. 1 spot.
What’s more: The Escape Inn ranked ninth on TripAdvisor’s list of top 25 bargain hotels in the world.
Another New England hotel, the Edgewater Motel & Cottages in Bar Harbor, Maine, also made the list of top 25 bargain hotels in the U.S., ranking No. 20.
The Escape Inn, which is open from April to October, bills itself as “a charming hideaway” with easy access to Cape Cod’s beaches, restaurants, and shopping. Guests can choose from rooms with hardwood floors, a 42-inch flat screen TV, and one or two queen beds. Amenities include a private pool, computer station, and complimentary parking. Guests receive a daily complimentary continental breakfast.
Bar Harbor’s Edgewater Motel & Cottages is a waterfront property located 2 ½ miles from the entrance of Acadia National Park. Guests can choose from motel rooms, suites, or cottages, “all beautifully positioned on our private pebble beach, nestled on a cove,” according to the hotel’s website. Amenities include kitchens, fireplaces, and kayak delivery.
The TripAdvisor rankings were determined by reviews submitted by users in 2018.
