We stayed here as kind of an "overflow" to one of the beach houses on shore drive. We "just" slept there and spent the day at the beach. for that I would say the hotel is barley adequate. The staf was polite and friendly. It was clean, tiny, and the A/C worked quite nicely. But the bathroom is absurd. Okay,... More

Briarcliffe is a small motel with a super friendly staff and owners. I've had to arrive at some pretty odd times and they have always accomodated me. They have also accomodated parking in their lot with a truck and motorcycle on a trailer. While this may not seem like a big deal, their lot size is small so parking spaces... More

We booked our room several months ago, I had requested early check in, they said they would save my room for us, which as it turned out, there were hardly anyone there. They knew we were arriving & said they shampooed rug & hopefully it was dry now. Room was so runned down, I have terrible allergies so I had... More

It is disappointing that this guest was not satisfied with their stay at the Briarcliffe. We were surprised that the reviewer was put off by our cleaning efforts when shampooing the rug and tending to the bi-weekly landscaping needs that occur in the summer months. At the Briarcliffe, we attempt to do the landscaping in short 1 to 2 hour... More

Briarcliffe Motel was recommended to our family by friends(also from Jersey) who stayed there last summer. We enjoyed our recent stay largely due to the motel's great location near fantastic beaches (Corporation and Mayflower) and the wonderful people who run the motel. They went out of their way to meet our needs and enjoy this quiet and quaint part of... More

I recently stayed at the Briarcliffe motel on route 6A in Dennis, MA. The hotel owners were more than accommodating and helped my family and I find great local restaurants and attractions. The Briarcliffe is an older hotel, but the rooms are clean and a good value for the proximity to the outstanding Dennis beaches. Nice pool for a dip... More

We've been vacationing in this area for many years, renting a cottage. This year we decided to rent at the Briarcliff instead. First, the positive: the owners are friendly, the pool is clean and has decent patio furniture. There is free coffee in the morning at the reception..On the negative side, the rooms are old and dated. The room was... More

This guest was correct. Purchasing and maintaining a seasonal motel during the past several years has been a capitol buster. Hopefully, someday we will be able to make the changes that this guest recommends. Thank you for your feedback. More

Just spent two nights at the Briarcliffe and loved it! My family had spent the week in a vacation home in Dennis with no air conditioning and the heat was horrible.

We recently stay at the Briarcliffe for the weekend visiting family on the Cape. The rooms are perfect for a weekend of exploring! Set back off the street, but close to all the action!

This unpretentious motel is set off the road and up a small hill in the town of Dennis, MA. There are no phones in the room, and cell phone service is spotty at best. The room consists of a chair, a bed, two bedside tables, two lamps, a dresser (with a television) and a small refrigerator. Each room has a... More
