We are staying at the Americas Best Value Inn & Suites at 206 main St. Hyannis, MA. 508-775-5225.
The place is much better than some of the dives that Larry and I have stayed at. It is not a luxury hotel and has few amenities. They have two pools, however and free Internet wifi. The wifi is slow, I think it is 802.11b, but it works well.
The place is full of fishermen. Larry saw a guy from Central Nyack, who is staying here. The last time that I saw him he was a skinny kid about 10 years old, but Larry recognized him. He signed up for a fishing junket on one of the boats and got a package deal. For two days fishing, two nights at the hotel and two dinners at a buffet restaurant it only costs $150. That’s about what Larry and I paid for the two nights.
If you stay here, don’t expect much except a reasonably clean room. It is not the Ritz, but it is better than any of the other places that Larry has talked me into staying. I am glad I researched this on the Internet before we came. $55 a night spring, $89 a night summer. Damn, today is the first day of summer and the rates went up.
We went down to Spanky’s on the Hyannis docks last night and had Steamers. I had found a Blues Bar on the Internet that had a Thursday night jam, but the place was shut down. Blues gets no respect.
Here are some pics of the hotel.
You can see in the picture below the short distance down main towards the center of town. You can walk everywhere from this motel.
Persy’s is right across the street and it’s where we had breakfast. It was too expensive, though.
The guitar store opens at 10:30 and I have to wake Larry up from his morning nap so we can go down and look at stuff we can’t afford. We are going down the coast to hang on a beach after that. Larry forgot to pack the fishing tackle so we have to pretend that we are fishing.
Come on Larry! Wake up. Our vacation is a wasting. (He is snoring like a chain saw.)
