Friends recommended this place...we are very glad they did! Believe it or not, true ocean front rooms on cape cod are scarce and quite expensive...most require a 1 week minimum...we got lucky...for the most part (will explain later)...and got a discounted price $249.00 per night - the regular rate for August is $300 a night - for 2 nights in ROOM 31... and $99 for 1 night in room 26 - not so great ...view of neighboring hotel parking lot.(The move was not voluntary, btw) ROOM 31 is top notch 2 room suite with full kitchen, separate bedroom, flat screen tv, even an electric fireplace,and that WONDERFUL ocean front balcony! There are six rooms (3 on each floor) of the hotel that are true ocean front - avoid the others. Only ROOM 31 has the full kitchen...a queen bed in the main room and 2 twins in the separate bedroom...bathroom has separate vanity areas - very nice and clean...my only complaint about this room is the lack of toiletries one comes to expect these days...you are given 3 slivers of cashmere bouquet soap...no shampoo, conditioners etc...no hairdryer unless you request one. Room 26 is small and really needs to be refurbished...there is a screened-in porch area, but the air conditioner vents into it and make the porch very hot indeed, and noisy! The sliding door is difficult to operate...tiny bathroom with a very old looking vent/fan cut into the tile wall about 2 ft off the floor, with some ugly plastic tape around it...honestly it was creepy looking...although the motel mgt describes this as "ocean view", that is somewhat deceptive...you have to look past the parking lot and through or over the 8 ft fence surrounding the motel next-door to get a glimpse of nantucket sound. Bottom line - we loved our time here in ROOM 31 !...also staff were very pleasant...and free self-service breakfast was a very nice surprize.!
