“Wonderful place to stay and a great value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

We spent only one night in this motel, but will definitely return when we are in the area again. From start to finish, the experience was refreshingly good. The room was just redecorated, thus was clean and bright and extremely welcoming. The young woman at the office when we checked in was courteous, professional, helpful, and friendly. The king bed was comfortable and the bathroom brand new. All of the colors were fresh, modern, and soothing, a fact which showed that a lot of thought had been given to make guests feel at home, The Chatham Motel location is perfect for easy driving access to any Cape Cod attraction and there are plenty of stores and restaurants nearby, yet it still provides peace and quiet.

Room Tip: If possible, ask for one of the recently- renovated rooms.

Very clean, comfortable and conveniently located. The owners could not have been nicer or more accommodating. They kept the office open late when learning our arrival would be very late due to severe weather and travel delays. It was a pleasant welcome and stay after a stressful trip.

This is a great place to spend 1-2 nights, at a reasonable rate. It is close to great beaches and town centers. We did this as a last minute getaway and it was well worth it! Good place for singles, couples, or families.

Room Tip: Deluxe rooms are newly renovated

My husband and I stayed in a deluxe room and found it very clean, cozy and nicely decorated. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was spotless! We enjoyed the coffee pot and used the refrigerator included with the room. We had plenty of room for our two day visit and would stay there again!

We stayed for 2 nights in August with 2 kids. We had a deluxe family room, which was surprisingly very roomy. We made a request for a pack and play for our toddler and usually with the hotels we have to make another request upon arrival because they simply do not checkm but here everything was ready and set up. The room itself was very clean, and we did not experience much noise. We also enjoy a small pool which was clean and although not in a spectacular setting was great with kids (we were also the only people in the people for both days). The location is perfect to all beaches, the town, the restaurants, etc. And frankly, with most hotels charging 3 nights minimum for ridiculous prices, it was a great value stay. I agree with the previous post about the man in the office - when we checked in, he acted as if I was bothering him. The woman however was very friendly. Also, no breakfast at all. I'd say it was a very good stay for reasonable amount. I would come back with the kids.

Based upon most of the reviews on TripAdvisor, we decided to give The Chatham Motel a try. Make no mistake about it, this is not a quaint New England Inn under the disguise of a motel---it is exactly what it claims to be---a motel. Our room (number 2) had from the beginning an extremely unpleasant mildew/moldy smell, this we managed to air out a bit, by leaving the window open. In addition the toilet was very bizarre in the fact that the water tank behind it was Boiling Hot---(Not a comfortable feeling, but definitely one contrived to make sure family members don't spend hours reading the newspaper!) The room itself was very outdated, with thin walls so you hear your neighbors without problem and the comforters had a horrible smell to them due to the mildew in the room. However despite all of this, we took it with a grain of salt saying that we weren't on the Cape to stay in the room, just to sleep and for the short time we would be in Chatham it was fine for our needs.

However, I have decided to write this review, because on our last day in Chatham, we had scheduled a half day fishing trip for which we would be departing at 4am. We called up to the reception to see if we could arrange for either a late check out or leave our bags in the office. The man (who from the beginning was not the friendliest of persons) refused to accommodate us in either way, rather rudely stating that the room was needed (ok, we had no problem with this), and that he did not feel comfortable at all letting us keep our belongings in the office until after we finished the trip after lunch,so the answer was no. Therefore we were forced to pack up all our suitcases and leave them in the parking lot at the Port. I felt that this man (not the lady who was very friendly) has chosen the wrong line of work since he obviously knows nothing about

After having evaluated the entire stay, at this point I will not recommend this motel to anyone, because aside from it's central location, it's definitely not worth the money.

Room Tip: Definitely don't stay in Room #2.
