Excellent front desk service. The representative was extremely knowledgeable about the area and local activities. Having a fresh cup of coffee in my room in the morning was an added bonus as was the fridge.

We have just come back from a quick, family, 4-day stay in Cape Cod. We stayed at the Chatham Seafarer and it was just great; right in the middle of everything that we wanted to do! Beaches, souvenir shopping, great restaurants!!. The room (pool-side efficiency) was very, very clean and was the perfect size for us...everything looked like it has... More

I'm very surprised at the recent negative reviews - we had a wonderful experience at the Seafarer during our three-night stay in September 2013. We knew from the reviews that it wasn't walking distance from the downtown, but that was fine with us, especially since parking wasn't a problem in mid-September. Annie, our host, was delightful and very helpful with... More

The pictures (and the Trip Advisor reviews) of this motel do not accurately reflect the over all shabbiness of the property, front office or the room we were supposed to stay in. The property needs much better lawn and shrubbery maintenance and the outside could use a coat of paint. The Front Office is a mess and smells moldy. The... More

My name is Patrick Wiseman, I own the Chatham Seafarer with my wife Annie, who manages it. Apparently husband of couple arriving only wished to speak with a man, even though Annie tried explaining that she was one of the owners and the general manager. I have photographed the property and have been careful not to make the rooms appear... More

Stayed for three days and left feeling we received little value at a high cost - averaged $197 per night. The motel has very few amenities - no complimentary breakfast or paper and no ice machine. The room's bathroom requires an upgrade - paint peeling on entire ceiling and sections of door. The motel office was not staffed for the... More

First, but certainly not our last visit! One of the best spontaneous decisions of the touring holiday. Annie, the owner, greeted us though we had no booking and happily showed us the available rooms before we booked in. She is such a delightful lady, gave us good advice, beach towels and what turned out to be a brilliant recommendation for... More

We visited New Hampshire / Maine / Cape Cod from Scotland & Chatham was one of the highlights. The Seafarer is an ideal location to relax in when visiting Chatham. 2 miles from town centre and 3/4 mile down quiet road to Ridgevale Beach means that you are 5 minutes drive from town which has ample parking & a pleasant...

If you know Cape Cod, you know the Route 28 motels. The good ones have clean rooms, a swimming pool, a/c, and heat, simple as that. Annie & Patrick are the proprietors, she French, he American, and they are two of the nicest people you will meet. They keep a great place, a nice clean motel in the classic Cape... More

Some places are so right that I hesitate to tell anyone else about them. But since I cannot travel every day of the year, I might as well share the good news. The Chatham Seafarer is about two miles west of Chatham. It is a block from an entrance to the Cape bike path and about 3/4 mile up a... More

I have driven by the Seafarer for years and never really took notice of how charming and lovely it is! I finally stayed there in October for four nights and I loved it and was also surprised to see the gorgeous grounds and pool that you cannot see from the street. I will have to return in the summer so... More
