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

We were looking for two rooms for one night in Cape Cod. The Bass River motel gave us excellent value for money with an admittedly basic accommodation but exactly what we needed. It is looking a bit threadbare, but the rooms are clean and the hot water works. For a nights stay, who needs more?

Bass river was a good motel experience. There were plenty of windoes to let natural light in. It has a vintage stayle feel with a tube tvm could use flat screens for some modern charm. No breakfest. There are restaurants and other businesses near by. Bedroom is very big but in proportion the bathroom feels a pinch too small. Cheap... More

This place is perfect if you're just looking for a clean, cheap, very basic old fashioned hotel. It was a great base for just checking out the cape in a quiet area in the off season. It is not fancy. Like 1970's decor, and not the good kind. But I slept like a rock.

Refrigerator and microwave helped make this a great room for the money. The bed was a little uncomfortable but a nice hot shower in the morning helped work the kinks out. For the money this is a good little motel.

This was an okay central cape hotel. I think it is a 5 star hotel in the 3 star category. thats a good way to describe it. Rooms are well kept for what they are. a little dated but for the price its a bargain hotel. The heat worked well and there was very little noise and I would say... More

The price was very reasonable and fair. Rooms are clean and simple. Nothing glamorous but liveable. Price includes your own microwave, fridge,set of bath towels for two people, internet, and your own parking spot. Could use some exterior updating but they seemed to be working on that as there was a guy painting windows during the day. Owners run the... More

I am a frequent Cape Cod visitor but I did not have access to a relatives condo so decided to stay at a hotel. Imagine a hot sunny Saturday in September on Cape Cod where the temperature is 80 degrees. Perfect for a day at the beach. Imagine getting a hotel for 38 bucks on such a nice day. I... More
