The room was basic but nice and clean. We stayed there for 2 nights for a very good price. The hotel doesn't advertise a breakfast but you can get a basic breakfast with bagel, jam tee and coffee or orange juice. The location is ok when you have a car otherwise it is too far to get to the beach... More

Have stayed at this motel several times when visiting the Cape. It's allure is the cheap price and central location. It is safe, clean and quiet. Room is basic and adequate. If all you need is a simple location...then this motel will work for you. Nothing special...but it will satisfy all your basic needs.

Clean. Air conditioner didn't work at first, pumped out heat. The owner came up and explained problem with switch and would replace unit if needed while we were there, but it started to work. Bed could be more comfortable. You can really feel the springs. You could also hear the springs in the room next door too when a couple... More

We were four friends on a cape cod tour. While booking a room in this motel I had a little doubt in mind cause of low prices. But to our surprise, rooms were very comfortable. We stayed in room 140 and it was very clean. Bed was soft. I had some problem with pillow but my friends were totally comfortable... More

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
