Nauset Knoll is a old style "Motor Lodge" owned by the US Government as part of the National Seashore. It has an unbelievable view and easy walk right down to beautiful Nauset Beach below. Need to bring your own toiletries, hair dryer, coffee maker & cooler as the old motel style rooms appear unchanged since the 1960's, but are very... More

This is a charming small motel - just 10 or so ground floor rooms - sort of cabins really. They are set on a small hill that overlooks the bay, from your bed you can see the ocean through the large windows - we saw wales out at sea. There is a path to take you straight to the beach,... More

As other reviewers have said, the Nauset Knoll is basic but the views are anything but! The room was large, 2 double beds with a couch and a chair, television with cable. No internet service or phone, if you can't unplug this is not the place for you. Bring a blowdryer if you need one. The room was immaculate though... More

This small, old fashioned motor lodge is a gem of a time warp. The rooms are scrupulously tidy and clean with décor unchanged since the 60s (grey and pink tiles in the bathroom) and that is a delightful thing in my book! All the rooms have a view east to the sunrise with nothing blocking the Atlantic. There is a... More

Clean and reasonable, ideal location. People come back every year for a reason. So many positives; negatives to be aware of: poor to no cell reception and no in room phone; pullout bed not very comfortable (but I've yet to find a pullout that is); biting flies outside room; rooms not darkened against sunrise. Bring bug spray and a sleep... More

Nauset beach is one very long, and beautiful beaches in Cape Cod. Of all the places to stay this is the closest. As other reviews have mentioned, there is actually a path that leads down to the beach via the public parking. At 9:30 am the beach stores open, and you can get your early morning coffee, within minutes. The... More

In June, 2013, my daughter and I wanted to try this Motor Lodge since it boasted great views of Nauset Beach. We were not disappointed - the view will knock your socks off!! Rooms are very simple, but very clean. Bunnies run to and from the hedge and grass area. A big plus is that there is a path leading... More

I owe it to the Nauset Knoll to give it the accolades it deserves, but also want to keep this absolute gem all to myself. Read the reviews ... they are all on point. Location is top notch. Throw back 1950s motor lodge ambiance is charming, rooms are immaculately clean, plenty of room to spread out and take in the... More

I had a wonderful stay at the Nauset Knoll Motor Lodge. Located overlooking what is possibly the best beach on the Cape (with an awesome shack too!), it's a very simple motel, with large, but basic rooms (no internet either)... but the views are incredible and worth the price alone. The owners are very friendly and helpful, there is a... More

Our family enjoyed our stay at the Nauset Knoll Motor Lodge. The views from both inside and out are beautiful. There is a large lawn area where kids can play at the motel. Nauset Beach is an easy walk just down a small hill and across the lot. You do need to drive to get to town and any restaurants... More
