This is a nice hotel for off season prices. We were told our price was about $100 off regular season prices. There's no way I'd pay regular prices for this. The good: friendly service, roomy queen room with fridge & micro, couch & desk with chairs. The bad: bathroom was not clean. There was several places the had "lower" body... More

I have stayed at the Cove on several occasions and it is consistently good. The people at the front desk are pleasant and helpful. The accommodations are clean and comfortable. Many rooms have views of the water called the Cove after which the motel is named. There are varying accommodations from simple to suites which are perfect for a family... More

My sister and I stayed here recently for a long weekend with my daughter. Having been coming to the Cape for years, we already knew that Orleans would be a great "base" from which we could start out each day. My family has always rented a house or stayed in the family home so choosing a hotel was a little... More

We were lucky to find the Cove at the end of a tiring day. Our room was large, had a frig and microwave, and a very nice water view. Rooms were clean and personnel were friendly. It was also within walking distance of restaurants and some shops.

The cove is situated on the water and there is a pleasant area with a gazebo to sit and soak up the view. Our room had a microwave and fridge. Instead of using the disposable cups provided in the room we purchased ceramic mugs for making oatmeal, coffee, and tea. The main draw back was the vigorous air conditioner.

Booking ahead for a summer affair on the Cape was important, indeed. All personal from reservations to checking out were courteous and professional.Helpful! Friendly.not modern, but a nice "homey fee"l, Comforable. Clean. Very good housekeeping. *One in our party had mistakenly left a jewelry item behind. I called The Cove when it was discovered missing a day after checking out,... More

My wife and I visited this Cape Cod Hotel and we enjoyed our stay, We had a King Room with a shared porch and a wonderful serene view of the Orleans Cove. With a mini-fridge and a 40 inch flat screen TV, we found the bed very comfortable. Room 23 was very clean and updated. The bathroom had a wonderful... More

There is so...much to do and see in this part of the cape (see various forums for activities and beach options). This motel's is located on... More

I stayed here twice this summer and on both occasions I was pleased with my stay but the housekeeping definitely could do a better job. The location is good and the motel sits on a cove with beautiful views. A nice place to stay but somewhat disappointed about the cleanliness.
