We found the owners sweet but somewhat neglectful. The room smelled very strongly of mildew. I'm sure it's tough in the sea air, but as someone with allergies to mold, I found it very hard to enjoy our stay. The grounds were beautifully landscaped, but the sand box was littered with debris and the chairs around the fire pit were... More

Love Love Love and enjoyed our stay. Our stay was for a family wedding and you where highly recommended by our Nephew and new Niece as they have stayed with you before. Some family & friends from CT took up at least 8 of the 12 rooms from Thurs to Sun. Family owned and operated at its best. Rooms are... More

Spent 3 nights here. Had a wonderful time. Rooms very spacious.. The location is very convenient. Delicious cakes in the morning. Only thing that would have made it even better would be to have tea making facilities in the rooms. Would definitely stay here again.

I have nothing but great things to say about this motel. From start to finish the Knowles were so friendly and helpful. We stayed here with our 2 young boys in August and had a great time. The location of the motel was great and close to a lot of attractions. We often went to one of the many beaches... More

We have come back "home"right here for 35 years. The Knowles have welcomed us and many others each year. They offer charming rooms and cabins. We've done both. It's old Cape Cod at its best. They can guide you to wherever you'd like to go and whatever you'd like to see. Their location is out off the fray. Located in... More

Very clean room, great housekeeping every day,wonderful information and hospitality from the Knowles family, beautiful grounds, great central location to all things on Cape Cod, especially the wonderful bike trails. Unbelievable value which left us money to eat out! Definitely try Karoo's restaurant in Eastham for a different and fantastic dining experience- South African cuisine!

If you want cheap and cheerful, look no further. Small, clean, friendly. Not sure I'd want to spend more than a couple of days in one of these motel units, because it can get claustrophobic, but they're perfect for a night or two on a budget. Some of these places on the Cape can be gross. Others are grossly expensive.... More

My family and I stayed in the 2 BR cottage the first week of June, which is the off-season on the Cape. It was really lovely. The grounds were clean and quiet. The cottage was very quaint. I suppose one could say they it was dated, but then, so am I. One doesn't go out to Cape Cod for an... More

We stayed in the smallest cottage, which was also the least expensive so that worked for us. The cottages are very dated and could use some upgrades, but everything worked and we were comfortable, and the price was right. And it was clean too, and quite cute. We really liked the many windows, which allowed for nice cross breezes (we... More

The rating scale makes it difficult to rate appropriately. While I think our stay wasn't exactly average, it wasn't exactly poor either- you just get what you pay for a cheaper motel stay, with few amenities and not as nice accommodations. What I liked: Motel is cute, pool is clean and nice, price was right. What I didn't like: The... More

OLDE CAPE COD is not for everyone, but we like it that way. Our lodging facility, established in 1924, reflects and maintains the authenticity of a by-gone era of "Olde Cape Cod". We are not, and do not wish to be "chain-like" facility. To maintain the architectural style, some of the rooms are smaller but quite comfortable and functional. Later... More
