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.

Only spent 2 nights here as we came for a wedding, but I would recommend this hotel to others. The place is a bit older, but has a very quaint vibe. The property is well maintained and close to most everything you would do in town. Our room had plenty of windows if you wanted fresh air , a deck... More

We just got back from our second stay at the Cove Motel. The location is perfect, right on the cove and within easy walking distance of all the shops and restaurants. The rooms aren't fancy but they are clean and fairly roomy.

My wife and first grader stayed in this hotel for four nights. We stayed in a suite. It was roomy - a living room separated from a bedroom with a small kitchen in between. Our daughter slept on the pull out couch in the living room. It's not a fancy place but the rooms were pretty clean and it is... More

It was our first time to Cape Cod for a wedding. The staff for very helpful! They let us check-in a bit early. They knew we were from the Midwest & pointed us in the direction of several great places. The property is older, but extremely well kept! The Cove Motel has character!

I have spent many summers on the Cape and particularly in this area. I had never stayed at this Motel before, but we were attending a family wedding that would be nearby so I booked it. What a great motel. The room was clean and very adequate, with a nice screened window that opened wide and a view of the... More

We chose The Cove primarily for its location and proximity to the Cape Cod Rail Trail, and we weren't disappointed. A quick bike rid on side streets got us to the great trail easily. Lots of restaurants, and shops within walking distance. I love a vacation where I can dump the car and walk everywhere, and this was it. After... More

Last minute booking. Helpful reception staff. Nice motel room. Pleasant relaxing waterside setting. Bought breakfast fruit, yogurt, juice from local supermarket and sat and ate it outside in lovely motel grounds. Would stay there again if touring lovely Cape Cod area
