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. My husband and I needed a place to stay in order to attend a wedding on the Cape on Saturday. I called and talked to Ken and he was... More

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! The rooms are a perfect place to lay a weary head after a long fun day on the Cape! If you want to spend a ton... More

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

Clean, neat, very reasonably priced. My kids liked the pool for days we didn't get to the beach. The motel is on a main route so it's close to attractions and beaches, yet it's set back from the road and surrounded by trees so it was very quiet and peaceful. The owners were friendly and went out of their way... More

Stayed at Briarcliffe one night in August 2012. Room was ok at best. Very very outdated and rundown room. Bathroom kind of grimy. Furniture cracked. It skeeved me out. But...we were there for one night and it was ok. Owners were nice. Pool ok. Not worth the price. If we had booked for more than one night I would have... More
