We only stayed here one night before we went to our cottage rental for the week. This is a great hotel in the Cape. It is very centrally located and is near all the beaches and restaurants. The hotel was very clean and in good condition. I would definitely recommend staying here if you're going to the Cape.

Room was clean, but very run down. It was fine for one night, but I wouldn't want to stay more than that. If you just need a cheap place to lay your head for the night, go for it. If you want a cheap place to spend your vacation, I would look elsewhere.

I was actually very surprised at what a great value and comfortable room it was. We also have a small dog and to find a place that allows dogs is almost impossible especially on Cape Cod. And yet they welcomed our dog with open arms. This was not your typical fleabag drug user hotel. Nope it was clean rooms, nice... More

This is my dads favorite spot for an affordable cape getaway and I couldn't agree more! We stayed there his past weekend and I really couldn't have been impressive with the space and service. Our room (standard double room, 2 double beds) was extremely spacious and clean. Not sure what the other reviews are talking about because the Manager was... More

We were not greeted well at check in, Manager was rude. We were in town for a dog show and told the manager up front that we had dogs with us, however they would not be in the room they would be staying in their crates in the van. He attempted to charge us $20/dog/night! The website states $15. I... More

My husband and I needed a room after we made a last minute decision to go to Cape Cod. We like the Yarmouth area because there's a lot to choose from BUT we do not need nor want some hotel that's on the water and high priced. So in spite of some poor earlier reviews we listened to the good... More

We booked this room as a mystery hotel selection on Hotwire.com. We were planning on spending a day in P-town but could not find anything close under $300 a night. The Castle Dawn and its neighbor The Thunderbird were originally the same hotel and were sold separately. The pool was not working, the breakfast was cold "self serve" cereal and... More

I was skeptic when reading all of these reviews but when I showed up I was pleasantly surprised. Yes it's a motel and not amazing--- but if you want amazing go and spend $300 a night somewhere else instead of $139!! If you want to spend a weekend on the cape this was one of the most cheapest places I... More
