Whenever we have friends coming to this part of Cape Cod, we heartily recommend the Cove Motel! It's a great location near the "rotary" for Rtes 6, 6A, and 28, and overlooking Town Cove. The rooms are comfortable and the staff is very helpful. Reasonable rates and quality service have earned the Cove an excellent reputation. It's also walking distance... More

Staying over Christmas.....rooms are nice. Our bed is lumpy. But for the price....nice accommodations. Great location. Free wifi is added bonus. Multiple connections therefore wifi strength was good. Plenty of parking. Beautiful view of cove behind buildings...

The Cove has a great location - central to shopping and dining on Main Street in Orleans, with beautiful water views. If you are looking for a luxury hotel, this is not the place for you. It is a locally owned motel, and you need to keep that in mind when booking. The rooms are simple but spacious and very... More

Very nice quiet and beautiful scenery-we loved our visit and cant wait to return. Walking distance to many restaurants. Loved just sitting at the cove and watching the birds and the moon rise. Staff was wonderful-not a single bad thing to say!

The Cove is a nice place but needs many things replaced rather than repaired. Most items are getting older and are out of date. They have dvd rather than blue-ray. There are insufficient plugs for chargers. Most need new furniture and updated bathrooms. There are no exhaust fans in the bathroom. We could not turn off the heat in the... More

Room was okay. I liked the smaller and green shampoo, lotion... The man at the front desk who checked us in was of absolutely no help, to the point of being rude. The hotel location was centrally located.

The Cove Motel offers Old Cape Cod Charm. It offers a very nice salt water view of town cove. It's centrally located to Orleans and the lower towns on Cape Cod. It offers free parking. Good restaurants are close by and the price is right. We had a nice clean unit that had a separate living room, kitchen, bedroom with... More

Stayed 6 nights at the Cove and happy to say it was a lovely experience. Some of the rooms that have kitchenettes don't have ovens, so if you need an oven for cooking, call to reserve a room, don't do it online. This is my second stay at the Cove and I look forward to future stays. Everyone in the... More

We planned a one-night stay at The Cove as we wanted to bring a dear friend to visit the Cape. I worked with the front office staff to book a room on what we hoped would be a sunny day or two. Everyone, but particularly Ann since I spoke with her the most, was consistently kind, flexible and gracious. Just... More

We were having a class reunion weekend and chose the Cove Motel for its location, quality of rooms and ambience. We were not disappointed. Because the mood was established from the beginning at check-in, the entire weekend was a roaring success. The weekend finale on Sunday night was the lunar eclipse viewed from the lower level with everyone huddled around... More
