Accessible Cape Cod Hotels, Resorts  & Inns

Searching for accessible Cape Cod hotels, resorts and inns can be a time-consuming task. But it need not be!

Whether you or your travel companion needs a full range of mobility or hearing accessibility, or you're simply looking for accommodations that'll make vacationing with a wheelchair, scooter, walker or cane a little easier ... you've come to the right place!

* IMPORTANT! *

I've done my best to "vet" the hotels, resorts and inns you'll see on this page. I've visited each of them, spoken with managers and/or staff, and asked a lot of questions.

In some (but not all) cases, if an accessible guest room was unoccupied when I was there, I was given a quick peek inside the room to see its accessibility features for myself.  

But the bottom line is:
you know what you or your traveling companion needs. I don't. So ...

** It's absolutely critical that you do your own research!

Before you make your reservation,
contact the hotel, resort or inn directly (via its local phone number) to verify for yourself that the  the type of room, bed style/height, bathroom features, and other amenities will be exactly what you need!!

Accessible Cape Cod Hotels

Four Points By Sheraton

Eastham, MA 02642
Local Phone: (508) 255-5000

Wheelchair accessible hotel entrance at Four Points by Sheraton in Eastham, MAFour Points by Sheraton - Eastham, Cape Cod

I've put this popular, family-friendly hotel at the top of the list for a few reasons:

  1. To the best of my knowledge, this is the only wheelchair-accessible hotel on the Cape that has bed frames specially designed to accommodate a portable transfer lift. That's a super-handy feature if you'll be bringing your lift!

  2. For travel companions who like to have separate beds, Four Points has rooms with two queens and a roll-in shower.

  3. Need a hearing accessible room? Four Points has them.

  4. Then there's the hotel's location in the heart of our beautiful Cape Cod National Seashore. What's not to love about that?!

Set in the heart of Sandwich Village, Dan'l Webster Inn is one of the Cape's historic gems - dating back before the American Revolutionary War. 

Bringing this lovely Inn into the 21st century, two rooms have been equipped with a number of accessibility features.

The queen-bed room on the first floor has a lowered bed and nightstand, a bathtub with built-in bench, grab bars, and an adjustable hand-held shower wand, and a toilet with grab bars.

The king-bed suite on the second floor (accessed by elevator) also has a lowered bed and nightstands. Bathroom amenities include a roll-in shower with hand-held shower wand and portable seat ... and a whirlpool tub that's lowered with a flat front and no stairs, allowing for easy entry.

Note:
The king-bed suite's shower and toilet are equipped with grab bars, but I didn't notice any for the whirlpool. Perhaps they've been added since my visit to the Inn, or maybe plans are in the works to add them at a future date.

In any event, if you have your heart set on using the in-room whirlpool, be sure to ask about grab bars before you make your reservation!

Cancellation Policies

Every now and then I see lodging reviews from vacationers who complain about being charged a fee or penalty for cancelling their reservation or cutting their stay short.

The reviewer usually says something along the lines of it's "not fair" or management "lacks compassion".

Believe me, I empathize. It's never a happy time when you're forced to change your vacation plans at the last minute - especially when it's for health reasons.

But please understand, it's not a happy time for the lodging owner/management, either - especially in a place like Cape Cod where our "season" is so short and every night of vacancy is lost revenue.

What's the solution?

* ALWAYS expect that a hotel, resort or inn's cancellation policy will be strictly enforced!!! *

If there's even the slightest chance that you might have to cancel after the allowed deadline has passed or that you might have to cut your stay short ... purchase travel insurance! Otherwise, you assume the risk of losing your deposit - and maybe more.
