“Oysterfest Weekend”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

Checked in for a one night stay while attending the Wellfleet Oysterfest. Blue Dolphin is conveniently located on the Eastham-Wellfleet line. The desk clerks were efficient both on check in and check out. The room was rather outdated but very clean. Beds were very comfortable. There is a slider which opens out into a small deck like area facing the woods. The room is equipped with a refrigerator, coffee maker, table and chairs and TV with expanded cable. The bathroom, also dated appearing, was adequately supplied with thirsty towels and soap, shampoo and conditioner. There was a new air conditioner/heating unit. The heat came in handy on a cool night when the temperature was in the 40s.

The room was adqueate, but not what we expected. We, my wife and I, stayed 5 nights and found the proprietors are very conservative on what they provide. Soap and other items for hygeine were non-existent afer check in. Cleaning of room was at best minimun. It was difficult to find a person at the desk during the day. There are quite a few nicer motels in the area that one should look at before selecting the Blue Dolphin. I guess you get what you pay for.

Room Tip: Don't believe the motel ratings you read on the inter-net. (trip advisor).

We were pleasantly surprised to find a spotless, updated adorable room with a nice wooded courtyard which had a shower-off platform, (for when you come back from the beach to rinse off all those sandy little feet). There are a few outdoor grills if you just want to make some hotdogs n hamburgers and every room has a sliding glass door to this private little courtyard, about an acre in size. The pool is brand new and has a wrought iron safety enclosure. It is right next door to some great restaurants and the National Seashore. The bayside beaches are right across the street. I recommend this place for families and adults as it is convenient to everything and clean. The staff was very accommodating and polite and get 5 stars for excellent service. Thanks for a nice stay.

Room Tip: we stayed around the courtyard and they all seemed equally nice

The Blue Dolphin Inn went above and beyond our expectations for our stay on 9/15/12.
Their check-in time is 3 pm; however, upon giving them our dilemma of having to be at a wedding, they had our room ready by 12:30 pm. The room was neat, clean, the beds comfortable, and included a mini fridge. My wife said that the pool was clean and well maintained. Although we did not dine at the restaurant next door to the inn, there were many cars in their parking lot.

We highly recommend the Blue Dolphin Inn for excellent lodging at a reasonable price.

We were appreciative of the Blue Dolphin Staff, specifically Minnie, for working with us during a medical issue and allowing us to re-schedule our planned visit on such short notice. The staff were friendly and accomodating, room was clean, bathroom stocked with ample towels and the rate/s very reasonable. The hotel is convenientally located near restaurants (which the staff are familiar with) and Cape activities. No complaints!

As a family we rented 2 rooms for 5 adults. Used as base camp to ride bike trails in Nantucket and north of Provincetown. Quiet, clean and pleasant site. Convenient breakfast/lunch buffet next door. Parking right outside your room is very handy. Staff are kind and accommodating. Sm. back deck and pool. Would stay again-vouchers for out of season travel were very helpful towards our meals.

Room Tip: Be reasonable, not demanding. Always tip housekeeping.

My wife and I stayed here on the recommendation of a friend. We were down Cape Cod to attend an event in Provincetown. The room was clean and quiet. Each room has a parking spot assigned to it right outside the door. There is a breakfast/lunch place right next door. I would stay here again and I recommend it to anyone looking for a place to stay in that area. It's close to the Cape cod National seashore and about a 25 minute ride to Provinetown.
