Hotel staff was friendly and helpful during our annual vacation. Clean room and towels everyday and a great price even during the holiday. Excellent location for those on a budget who want to be in the middle of Cape Cod. 1 hour from Provincetown, minutes away from the steamship authority that sails you to Marthas' Vinyard and very close to...

The Thunderbird Motel was disgusting and the worst place I've ever stayed in. The mold/mildew stench was so strong that I was honestly unable to sleep. The carpet was damp and filthy. My husband and I wouldn't even walk on it with socks on but wore shoes any time we had to walk around. I didn't even want my luggage... More

It's pretty much everything you expect from a budget motel - rooms that are clean but a bit in disrepair, vending machines, doors that open onto a parking lot. But you can't beat the price, the staff is exceptionally helpful, and if you're there to focus on other events (I stayed here for a wedding) it's a perfectly fine choice.... More

The night person at front desk "Nick" was very knowledgable & helpful with the directions, restaurants etc. He even helped us getting the... More

Our room was reasonably priced, had new carpeting, smelled clean, and was conveniently located. Management was new and the front desk person was very friendly. If you're looking for a clean basic room on a budget, then this place is good.

There are better places to stay on the cape. Their free wireless was just great. I went to read my emails and received 4200 emails and 3500 spam emails. I am still dealing with the emails. The pictures are very deceiving. The place is run down and dirty. The floor boards in our room by the sink were loose and... More

The Thunderstank, man. You just can't get over that Thunderstank. Imagine the basement of your house, condo, apartment complex, whatever. Now multiply by two. Then raise that to the exponent of two, perhaps three, depending on how sensitive your nose is. Yeah, it's that bad. And I'd really like to know where the water that was seeping into the bathroom...

The grounds were completely unkempt and actually seemed very dumpy and a little intimidating. Like you were in a bad part of town, which was not the case. There was no parking on the side of the building where are room was and truthfully it was not convenient, the room was clean and whatever they used to deordorize the room... More
