The hotel is quite old but the location is great, directly on the beach, in a very quiet and calm area. All the rooms have front view on the ocean which is not the case in most hotel in the area. If you're not looking for a luxury place but for a quite and seaview hotel, this is an excellent... More

The outside front of this hotel looks terrible and the lobby is a time warp back to the 60's. The owner told us 75% of the rooms have been refurbished. I have to agree about the beds...terrible. Does feel just like sleeping on box springs. The walls are also very thin which can make for some noisy disturbances. The location... More

My husband & I went for a quick overnight trip. We enjoyed the hotel right on the beach & liked that there was a kitchen. The lobby needs some updating & the staff was nice. It could use more curb appeal. All in all it was ok.

I`m giving this hotel a 3 star rating because of the amount of noise you can here from other rooms. We barely slept, due to the fact that the walls and ceiling are paper thin. You can hear very clearly conversations on either side of us and upstairs. This includes t.v.s and bodily functions. Our room was very clean and... More

I will give this hotel 2 stars because it a perfect location right on the beach and the upgraded rooms are very nice with half kitchens, but the women who is the management or owner of this place will make your stay a living hell. My fiance and I visited our parents staying here last year when we were first... More

My boyfriend and I have been coming to this motel for 6 years now and we have had a great stay each time. The location, grounds and rooms are excellent as well as the front desk staff. I can't say the same for the owner of the property. She was exceedingly rude to my boyfriend when he was trying to... More

It was a nice hotel right on the ocean. Very large room with kitchenette, microwave, coffee maker, stove top and small fridge. Very good price during off season making an ocean front room very affordable. Rooms were clean and location is excellent. My only complaint was no wifi so I could not use my tablet to read my morning paper.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located on a secluded stretch of private beach directly on Nantucket Sound offering a vacation distinctly different from most Cape Cod resorts. Sit back and relax at your own pace, basking in the warm Cape Cod sun 'til your heart's content; or stroll along the shore gathering shells at sunset. Stake claim to one of the beach chairs on our extensive lawn or poolside while you catch up on your reading; or if the kids beckon, build castles in the sand or play a challenging game of shuffleboard... without ever moving from your home by the beach.We hope that you enjoy your stay with us. Whether your here for a family vacation, a family reunion or to celebrate the union of two in matrimony, we want to be of service.When the mood strikes, you're just minutes from the many popular activities which dot the landscape in the Mid-Cape area. From museums and history to antique and gift shops... miniature golf to whale watching, you'll set your own pace to enjoy the many activities for all ages and interests. ... more   less
