We were visiting Orleans for the first time for a family wedding. It was quiet and the staff was extremely helpful. We could watch the boats from our deck. You get kind of a nostalgic feeling here. Just like a family run motel used to be. Absolutely loved our stay. It was a great value too!

Very quiet place off a very busy road. A few places to eat within walking distance (Cookes, Lobster Claw Restaurant down the road). Conveniently located across the street from The Christmas Tree Shops in case you forget any toiletries. Room was very clean (although it smelled strongly of cleaning chemicals). Water pressure okay. The shower seemed to me to be... More

Spent two nights here with another couple in March 2015. Room was clean, attractive and large. No breakfast, but good restaurants near-by. We particularly liked "Hole-in-One! Very convenient location. Rooms recently done over. Would definitely return. Good TV with large screen. Beds firm but comfortable. We were very happy we picked this place!

Wonderful facility on Town Cove, close in to shopping and attractions. Crisp, clean, all amenities on site. Excellent value and restful, comfortable rooms. Easy access to parking ... well cared for landscaping ... Staff is friendly, helpful, and knows the Cape area intimately!

Only stayed here one night. Just basically needed a place to sleep for the night before heading home. The room was clean and comfortable. The front desk staff was friendly and helpful. Only complaint was no fan in the bathroom.

Also outdoor pool, weather permitting of course. Rooms were very clean and daily maid... More

The Cove Motel is located right in the heart of Orleans and you can walk to many shops as well as restaurants. The restaurants in the areas are fantastic and many were highly recommended to us by the Cove Motel staff. The room we had was very spacious - we had a separate living room, kitchen, and bedroom. There is... More

The Cove is exactly what I would expect for the price and the location - a three-star rating. It is on the waterfront at a beautiful and central location in Orleans. I have two complaints: (1) my room had stairs, which when you get up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom is problematic and (2) the... More

During a recent motorcycle ride to the Cape, we stopped in when we saw the vacancy sign. Sally and Bonnie offered to show us two rooms that were available for the night. Both had a beautiful view of the waterfront, outside seating, very clean room, extremely clean bathroom, AC, refrigerator, TV, free WI-FI. During our tour of the rooms, Sally... More

We have stayed here in winter and summer, and it is lovely in both seasons. Very clean, not your average motel, nice character. Room 44 has a king canopy bed, a full kitchenette, and a private balcony overlooking the Orleans Town Cove. Great central location to get to Nauset Beach, Nickerson State Park, plenty of restaurants.
