Price was right and location good but rooms needed a little upgrade The musty smell and bugs were concerning, but for the price and no bed bugs we were happy Workers and owners were friendly Location was close to all the best places we wanted You got what you paid for so we were good

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.

We went to the bass river motel to stay for our first cape cod vacation. Big mistake. 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

I made reservation for a room at this motel through Expedia and had to cancel due to scheduling conflicts. The hotel told me that they would NOT refund the $110.58 deposit when I made the reservation. I had to go through Expedia to cancel the room cause the staff didn't know how to do it on their computer systems. I... More
