We booked the motel for two nights but left after the first due to the incredible mold smell in our room. A little smell is almost part of the motel/road-trip experience and we do not consider this a problem - but mold is not only an unpleasant smell... The managers reaction was not helpful at all, we were only offered... More

The room was very clean, the bed comfortable and the place was very quiet. I was only sleeping there and spending days with folks who live in Bass River, so did not use the pool, but it looked clean. The morning coffee was decent and the staff very friendly. Minor issues were a) a kind of wobbly toilet b) slow... More

Stayed for 1 week on a spur of the moment trip. Owners were very gracious and upgraded us to a larger room for just a little more money. The room was very clean and comfortable. The hotel is centrally located to many nice beaches, restaurants and attractions.

My girlfriend and I stayed one night here over the Memorial holiday, as we were passing through. We were not disappointed, except for the price. On our trip we found Holiday Inns that had lower rates. However, the price was moderate and fit the area. The owner/manager was super friendly and very helpful. The room was very clean, the décor...

This lodge is a classic motel building, old, but extremely well maintained and perfectly clean. We loved it. The owner is friendly and helpful. The continental breakfast here means coffee (really good - by far the best we had as part of an included breakfast during our 3-weeks-trip) and the usual fat donut. Don't go to the "Breakfast Room" -... More

We stayed for 4 nights in September. Very clean and well maintained. Flat screen TV. The owner/manager was very friendly and helpful. The location was good for us and breakfast was within walking distance (3 or 4 blocks). I'm not sure what the bad reviews are about, maybe there are new owners. If you expect a 4-star place for this... More

My boyfriend was visiting from England and we wanted to do something nice, away from typical MA ventures. My dad suggested we go to the Cape. I was nervous since it was Labor Day weekend that it'd be pricey for us. We found a very affordable price for Sunday at GuestLodge. We liked it enough that we saw the low... More

I was nervous about staying here after reading these reviews but as I've learned, don't put your full and complete trust in other's opinions. First, most reviewers write reviews because of what they consider THE WORST EXPERIENCE they've had. Second, people will make promises to themselves to write a review about THE BEST EXPERIENCE they've had but usually forget. Third,... More
