We spent a week in Massachussetts and were looking for a hotel that was halfway between Provincetown and Boston. BW Cold Spring was perfect. We especially like the complimentary continental breakfast as we had kids, and it was nice not to have to worry about finding a place for breakfast. There was a ton of various food items to choose from; you can even make your own waffles. The staff for breakfast as well as check-in was VERY nice and accommodating.
The room itself suited our needs. Beds were clean and the room was well-maintained. There was a mini fridge which worked out great as we brought bottled water and wanted to keep it cold. There's a grocery store within a 5 minute drive, so that also helped for snacks. There were plenty of towels and amenities. Rooms were cleaned every day. Our room was on the ground floor very level to the parking lot, so we felt a little obligated to keep all the curtains shut. There was no safe in the room, so we had to carry all our valuables with us. I didn't feel the area was unsafe at all, but didn't feel comfortable leaving things in the room unattended. There are laundry facilities available, but we did not use them. The shampoo/conditioner they have is VERY good. I didn't care for the bar soap, though, and found it too drying. Water pressure in the shower was very good.
The town is great to walk around in. We had kids with us, and it was nice to stroll to the playground down the street. We also went down to the harbor/marina area and dined there. Lots of gift shops as well all within walking distance from the hotel.
One of the reasons we chose this hotel was because it has an outdoor pool. While it's a great feature, the pool wasn't heated as claimed, and there were barely any pool towels left when we got there even though there was only one other guest swimming at the time. Granted, we were there about an hour and half before the pool closed, but still; there should always be enough towels. The other thing I didn't like was we had a room across from the check-in/breakfast area; the pool is a very far, uphill walk, so we ended up having to take the car up there. We only tried to use the pool once. I found it to be more inconvenient than an amenity. less
