Stayed one night at this Motel while in between places on our Cape vacation. The motel is outdated but clean, so really for the price I'm not complaining. The motel is not in a bad location, a couple minute drive to Wellfleet and also Coast Guard Beach and the lighthouse. Very convenient.

The Blue Dolphin is a large, standard, strip motel in a pleasant park-like setting north of Eastham. It's fairly basic and aging but our units were okay and clean - with even a residual strong smell of bleach! We didn't find anything special to love, but nor were there any grounds for complaint. It is what it is. Right next... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here during the last week of July. It was our first time ever visiting Cape Cod and our stay at the Blue Dolphin Inn definitely contributed to a wonderful experience. The inn is centrally located, making it very convenient to travel up and down the Cape. It was also a fairly quiet area despite being... More

We were only coming down to the Cape for one night during a visit with some friends who live in Boston, so weren't looking for anything too special. The Dolphin Inn was well priced, and when we got there the staff were very friendly, and the rooms very clean. The bathrooms were a good size, and came with the basics,... More

Stayed at the Blue Dolphin for four nights. It's a very good place: the rooms are big and the beds are very comfortable. There's everything you need: WiFi, Tv, a small fridge and also a microwave and a coffee machine. The area is very peaceful and relaxing and every room has a patio in the back with a small pine...

My girlfriend and I were looking for a weekend getaway near Wellfleet. We choose Blue Dolphin Inn because it came well-reviewed in a good location. Well, the place lives up to its reputation. The rooms are clean and comfortable, and all have a back patio area that opens up to a shared fire-pit. Additionally, there are swing-sets for your kids,... More

We were surprised that we were able too book this last minute for one night over Labor Day weekend, I think it was because of a cancellation as it was booked solid an hour after I booked our room. After biking and spending the day at Provincetown beaches we really just needed a clean comfortable room that night. This place... More

I last stayed here better than 20 years ago and it has changed little in all that time. New paint, carpeting, bath upgrades and flat screen TV's yes, but the place itself has changed little over the years. Sprawling property with units all around a perimeter drive.
