The place was disgusting. Nothing but junkies for next door neighbors. The heat is on a timer. The fridge was full if mold and the management sucked. They tried ripping me off each time I was there! There are too many rules for such a disgusting place!

My wife and I decided to stay here and were very surprised at the friendliness of the people. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The sheets and towels were all new and overall it was a rather pleasant experience. I would definitely recommend this as an affordable alternative and will be staying there again.

My wife and I stayed her for 2 nights very recently. The only reason you might want to choose this place is because of location. Short drive to Hyannis and Chatham and about an hour to Provincetown and Truro. Our room smelled very musty and did not have a coffee maker, iron, or a blow dryer. The internet was as... More

We stayed here for two nights and it was super affordable! The best part is that the motel is in a convenient location. Restaurants (ie. Pancake Man, Geraldi's Cafe) and mini-golf/arcade are all within walking distance. We would stay here again the next time we're back in Cape Cod!

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...

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
