“Quite charming”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2012

We found this motel to be clean and quiet. The grounds are nicely kept. We enjoyed sitting on our deck and feeding the ducks and chickens at the pond. A computer was provided on sight to research travel arrangements. The home made bread and fresh eggs at breakfast were enjoyed at the picnic tables that looked out at the pond. A camp fire was provided at night. The owners were friendly and helpful with our trip arrangements. A very charming motel.

We stayed at this motel for a couple of nights in July.

It is near East Sandwich and, while there is a restaurant within easy walking distance you'll need to use the car if you want more choice and to go further afield. The setting is rural with a delightful duck pond. Cars are easily parked directly outside each room.

The rooms are large with a sink area, bathroom, seating area and, in our case, a reasonable size double bed. Wifi is provided and there are plenty of points available to charge all the electronic gear that we tend to roam around with these days. Apparently, a swimming pool is availanble but we did not make use of it. The bed was comfortable. The bathroom perhaps a little dated but functional with a shower over a small bath. The replacement of the large elderly cathode ray TV with a similar size flat screen would save space.

Breakfast was provided but was a rather strange affair in some ways. No seating area is provided but picnic tables can be used in good weather. The selection of food on offer was fair though the omission of normal bread and any cutlery was rather strange. The absence of milk (only half and half provided) would seem unusual to non USA guests.

The owner and staff are friendly enough.

Overall, a pleasant rural motel. The breakfast offer could be improved.

The Earl of Sandwich harkens back to motels of my youth, before the big name chains existed. It is clean, quiet and the innkeepers have kept pace with technology by providing WIFI and cable. They even include a continental breakfast which is enjoyed in the most beautifully maintained grounds and accompanied by a wide variety of ducks and geese who are quite entertaining. A definite 5 star rating.

We spent a week at the Earl of Sandwich, exploring the Cape. Perfect location, quiet with wonderful wildlife all around and charming considerate hosts.
Home made continental breakfasts,( you must try the zucchini bread) were wonderful, the pool was immaculately clean and quiet and the gardens delightful.
The only problem was not wanting to leave.

The proprietors of this motel have turned a 60's roadside motel into a charming lodging through the use of landscaping and interior design. The tree-shaded grounds invite you to sit and relax in swings or small groups of Andirondack chairs. Flower beds abound and are well maintained. There is a duck pond where a variety of ducks frolic throughout the day and are a joy to watch. The grounds also include a swimming pool.

The rooms are impeccably clean. Once you enter the room, I got the feeling that I had walked into a room of an Edwardian inn. The wooden canopy bed, the scatter rugs on the tile floor and the high back studded reclining chairs gave a very homey atmosphere. The rooms are spacious. The bathroom was so clean we thought it had recently been remodeled. There was the usual amenities along with a flat-screen TV. Our room had a medium tone paneling. But I understand that there are rooms without the paneling. I liked the paneling. It added to the atmosphere. Also, some rooms have a deck. All rooms are on the ground level.

There was no in-room coffee maker. However, there was a coffee pot in the breakfast nook of the main building that was available at all times. The continental breakfast included boiled eggs, homemade breads and muffins, juice and coffee along with croissants and jellies. There was no seating in the breakfast area. However, there were benches and picnic tables just outside. For us, this turned out to be a real treat. The morning was bright with comfortable temperatures. We watched the ducks romp while eating.

The bottom line is that the rent for this motel was very reasonable when compared with others in the area. If we ever return to the Cape, we will definitely stay at this motel again.

Room Tip: For a cozy atmosphere choose the paneled rooms. For a deck, choose the unpaneled rooms.

We enjoyed our stay at the Earl of Sandwich Motel, we stayed for one week. Very convenient to all of Cape Cod. We also took day trips to Plymouth and New Bedford. What we liked the best was coming to the motel at twilight, sitting in the Adirondacks chairs in front of the fire and watching the ducks and geese who visit the back yard pond. Our room was very comfortable and nicely decorated. Continental breakfast is available, also menus for local restaurants.

This motel was recommended to us at the Visitor Center and we were very pleased with our 2 night stay. The owners were very friendly, the rooms clean and the breakfast was very good. This was very similiar to staying at a bed and breakfast at a lower cost. The room was very nice and although very clean and overall satisfactory the bathroom needed a makeover. Our room did not have one of the newer flat screen televisions however the older television was satisfactory. We would definetly stay there again.
