You cant find a better price on cape cod. Trust me I tried. At $52 it was about 12 bucks less then any other place on booking.com. I booked. At check in I let them know I was traveling with my parents and wife and there were 4 of us. They waived any charges and I was shocked. Normally the... More

My wife and I went to the melody tent in Hyannis and decided not to drive back at night. We checked out priceline and found this place 20 minutes away at the lowest price. We just needed a place to sleep. They were open 24 hours so we booked. The hotel room was spacious and clean. Staff was friendly and... More

It is an absolute mystery to me how this place has been favorably reviewed by so many unless we were given the most depressing, musty, outdated, and stained room room available. Although the man who checked us in said it was a brand new room, it must have been imported from 1981--it smelled like old cigarettes and must, the carpet... More

A very rustic appeal that works for me all day long. I liked the setting and location. The staff was talkative and suggestive of things to do. Gave me a bunch of brochures for things I would like. I went to a couple mini golf places near by and a pancake place in walking distance. They said beach was a... More

I liked the value of the bass river motel. Beds were comfortable. The location was ideal cause beaches were close by. Hyannis was a short drive but far enough where you miss the heavy traffic. Staff was nice. Property could use some outside upfitting but the inside was pleasant and above the price range.

The only let-down was the lack of a pool. Once you get past that it's all uphill from there. We read a bunch of these trip advisor reviews for many places and were still skeptical about what we were going to get for $45. We were surprised by the cleanliness of the room. The owners are very nice people who... More

The bass river motel suffices for a quick over night stay. The rooms are well sized. The room was as expected. Cheap and clean like everyone says. Tv was an old tube tv with average picture quality. Heat was good and internet was decent. No breakfast but that was expected for $44. Big enough parking lot with spaces right in... More

Pro: the price,staff,fridge,room size, location location,pretty clean Con: rooms old, noisy fridge, dust on radiator,wood chips on bathroom door, no ice. For the price it is a good deal. I wouldn't suggest it if your looking for all the bells and whistles but for the cheapest price on the cape it is a clean and nice.
