My husband and me stayed there for 1 night (we needed 1 night to spend on Cape Cod to help our daughter to settle with 2 little kids in rented condo, so we wanted to be near by). Location was very good to get everywhere we needed at that time. We requested no-smoking room, but room on the 1st floor... More

The pictures posted on travel sites and the reviews of other customers do not represent the true nature of this hotel. The rooms are very small with an exposed concrete wall at the head. The odor when entering the room is overpowering and no amount of fresh air gets rid of it. The tv is old, small, and barely visible... More

We stayed at the Barnacle on a whim. We stopped there due to location and wanted to stay in the area longer. The location is what we needed, the price is what we needed, and they had parking for our boat and trailer. They were accommodating. They had a fridge for our cheese and drinks, all ready for our wine... More

Everything we needed and wanted. The room was clean, refrigerator larger than most (and clean), free wi-fi, we requested and received first floor, coffee and muffins each morning, surprisingly quiet inside and outside the rooms, pool was immaculate. We sat outside while my husband smoked his cigar (ALL non-smoking rooms which we love) and owner came to chat with us.... More

Stayed in August with kids and it was a great experience. Rooms are big, clean and the owner and staff are very nice. Location is great if you are not interested to be right on the beach with many shops and restaurants nearby. The value is amazing for this motel and what it offers. Located right on RT28 but still...

What I disliked about this place was how while I was checking in, the owner felt it was appropriate to berate me for other people's behavior for things that took place the night before which I had nothing to do with seeing as though I wasn't physically there. In fact, my stay was in jeopardy before I even arrived to... More

I have stayed in several other hotels nearby as I visit my mother every year. This one is my favorite. The owners and staff are eager to help. The rooms and the property are spotless and for July on the Cape, the price is fantastic. Muffins and coffee in the morning. Although it is along route 28 and I was... More

Most lodging on the Cape seem to be little motels like this one. I have nothing but good things to say about this motel. Owner was super nice, accomodating a very late check in. Very helpful. The room was outdated but that was expected ahead of time and not a problem at all. Extremely clean, which is the most impt... More

This is our second year coming back to this hotel and we really enjoy staying here. The staff is extremely nice, especially the owner/manager and housekeeping. I stay here with my husband and 2 daughters and the rooms are perfect for us. We stay in a suite with the kitchenette and we have everything we need. The location is great... More

We arrived by chance in this town. We decided to take a room there. We were well received by the owner. After visiting the room, we decided to book for one night. The place is very clean, good smell emanates from the room. After the first night, we decided to take another 2 nights at this motel because the place... More
