I have never reviewed anything before online, but I thought it was important for me to review this establishment. I think the photos speak for themselves. That being said, I would stay here again, but my mother definitely wouldn't! I stayed 3 nights; Friday cost $169, Sat $229, and Sun $75. If I were to return to this motel I... More

We stayed at Bass River Motel for 3 nights with 2 kids (4 and 12). It's true to pictures online, except the pool is not working. It's dated, but so are most properties in Yarmouth. The room is small, but has a big fridge and a microwave. Bathroom is clean. Due to non-functioning pool, there is nothing to do on... More

It was ok for one night, purchased based on price of $75/ night. Beds were quite firm, pillows looked okay, but with two together, they still flattened nothing.The thing that bothered us the most was the odor, don't know if they were thinking that it was a nice touch, but the plug in Air Wick air fresheners in the bathroom...

Wow.....the owners were fantastic and the price was amazing for the value received. Large room with new microwave and refrigerator....full kitchen...and separate master bedroom for $64. Unbelievable value. Location was great as well.

We paid $58 for the night in Cape Cod in the height of summer. Wait, what?! Yes, they have great rates and clean rooms. We stayed for one night on our way home from Provincetown. The rooms are small and could probably use some upgrading, but it served its purpose. If you're like me, I don't spend much time in... More

Did not know that this is a welfare motel. The room was ok. At $120.00 a night it was nuts....but.....it's the Cape....and summer. I do not like the Cape at all, in any season, the problem being when you have to stay on business, in the summer, the prices are insane. The same room in Winter is probably $70.00.

The pool was empty.....the beds smelled musty I don't know how many big spiders I had to step on so my kids wouldn't freak out ... they made us leave them a 100$ deposit and only returned 50$ claiming we dirtyed the sheets...

I meant to leave a review right after we stayed 6 weeks ago, but was busy with my job and put it off. The owners are very nice and they seem to employ mostly older men to work there, not the usual, but bottom line, the room was clean and quiet. I was surprised to see the comment about room... More

The rooms are nice and basic. Had everything we needed for a two night stay. The outside is okay. It’s a pretty quiet and peaceful place if you’re looking for just a cheap and clean place to sleep. The owners are very nice. The pool was closed, but we came for the beach so we had no problems with that.... More
