The rooms are charming and the staff couldn't be more helpful. I love the quiet area. The property is maintained beautifully. There are stores, shops, and beaches so close and convenient. The Briarcliffe is my favorite Cape Cod getaway.

During the Cape Code Baseball season, I stayed with Ken and Julie at Briarcliffe, for 5 weeks, and those two most pleasant people made it my most pleasurable vacation ever. My quaint, comfortable, room was convenient to everything important to my trip. My room was kept spotless with their cleaning staff. The grounds were spotless, coffee in the morning always,... More

I have stayed here before and frankly it was a dump. This reasonably priced 26 room motel is well located. The new owners are putting a lot of money and effort into a major over haul to be completed by March/April 2016. I stayed here again last week for business and could not believe the changes already. Cleaner, new shower... More

We were there on the 4th of July for three nights as an overflow place where friends rented a house close by. We literally slept, showered and were out, so we spent little time actually in the room/on the premises. It's dated and had a mildew smell that was rectified with 5 minuets of fresh air. That being said, the... More

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
