“Quiet, clean, lovely grounds & perfect location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

After our first stay several years ago, we decided there was no need to experiment with any other place in this section of the Cape.
Rooms, especially bathrooms, are exceptionally clean, more so than those in many fancy / expensive hotels. All have openable windows, and at least some (not sure if all) have ceiling fans - very pleasant when the temperature is moderate. (Don't worry, there's AC & heat for hot or cold weather.) The furniture is in good shape, and the linens are of good quality.
If you travel as we do with a cooler & freezer blocks, you can keep the freezer blocks frozen in the refrigerator that's located in the common room.
The grounds are lovely and are kept meticulously neat - manicured would not be too strong a description (weeding, sweeping, raking - always in progress!). Outdoor amenities include a bicycle rack, some outdoor games, grills, tables & chairs and a clothesline (very nice for drying wet bathing suits & beach towels).
Here's one of our favorite things about Midway Motel's location: At the rear of the property, a path leads to the Cape Cod Rail Trail. First thing in the morning, we take the trail about a mile to Sam's Deli on Brackett Road (BTW, Sam's has delicious baked goods & prepared foods plus a small grocery section). We get a cup of good coffee and walk back to our room, where we have breakfast (we bring fruit, cereal, muffins & the like with us). Bring your bikes and, venturing a little farther, you'll have access to several excellent ice cream places.
As others have mentioned, owner Sally lives on site and welcomes each guest with enthusiasm and offers of suggestions as to area activities, restaurants etc. Each year she renovates some rooms to update them & keep them in good condition. It's obvious that she takes great pride in providing superior lodging and a very fair price.
We will be back next year!

I was at Cape Cod in September for a seminar. Stayed at Midway for almost a week. I really appreciate the level of cleanliness and attention to details with which the room is kept. After a long day in training, it was wonderful to be able to unwind and relax in the room. The rustic setting of the motel adds to the charm. Sally, the owner, is welcoming and enthusiasm is in her voice and eyes. I felt very much at ease rightaway- after a long long flight from Singapore. She is at the same time professional and helpful. Thanks, Sally. I will stay again at your motel when I come back to the Cape.

Room Tip: Don't hesitate to ask Sally for help.

My Wife and I recently took our young family to the Cape for a couple nights in September for some late Summer beachtime. We had read great reviews of the Midway Motel and it did not disappoint. Sally, the owner is super friendly and very helpful. The rooms are clean and comfortable and are equipped with microwaves and fridges so you can be self sufficient if you want to be. Very handy with a young family! There is also a great common area with a full size fridge and freezer as well as free coffee in the morning if the in room isn't enough. Considering how busy Rte 6 is the privacy where the rooms are located was very peaceful with easy access to the incredible bike path. We will definitely try to return.

If you are looking for luxury, perhaps don't stop here. BUT ... This was extremely comfortable and the manager, Sally, is extraordinarily welcoming and helpful.

Our room was a good size: comfortable double bed; plenty of pillows; lots of drawers and hanging space for clothes; table and chairs; and a bathroom with soft white towels and facecloths, which I always think is a special touch. I don't think we would have been more comfortable if we had stayed in a hotel costing three times as much.

Sally's suggestions on places to visit and where to eat were spot on, with great food and service. She was constantly pleasant and welcoming and knowledgeable and on her own changes this from a "great value for money" place to a "must stay". If we return the Cape Cod, this is where we will stay.

My husband and I recently stayed at the Midway Motel and both of us were very impressed with the location, very close to everything we wanted to do and see. Sally, the owner, was very helpful in recommending great places to eat. She was right about each one of them. We enjoyed our room, which as many other reviewers stated was spotless, back from the main road and fairly quiet. We would definitely stay here again.

We recently stayed at the Midway Motel in Eastham, MA on Cape Cod. While looking at places to stay, the motel's web page certainly made it sound very inviting. I was particularly intrigued by the comment 'Spotlessly Clean'. I had never read that before for any rental or hotel/motel room. You certainly expect the rooms to be spotlessly clean but find that many are not. Well the Midway certainly lives up to all they claim to be. The layout and care of the property was perfect and the room spotlessly clean. We felt like we were in the middle of nature with biking and hiking trails directly behind the property. The owner and staff were very friendly and helpful. The Midway is located very near the Cape Cod National Seashore so it was a quick car or bike ride to the beaches. There are some fantastic restaurants very close by - The Beachcomber and the PB Boulangerie Bistro were our favorites. You can get to Provincetown in about 30 minutes or the Ice Cream Cafe in Orleans in about 20 minutes. We have no doubt that we will be staying there in the future. A diamond in the rough!

Just had a very nice stay at the Midway Motel. The rooms were very clean and everything we needed was available to us. The beds were comfortable. The fridge was very cold, the hot water very hot, and the grounds were terrific. We played shuffleboard and badmitton. The hotel is right on the bike trail and very close to numerous restaurants. Fantastic beaches, both on the ocean side and the bay side, are just minutes away. We loved the common room; a great place to just relax, play a game, or just have a cup of coffee. Would definitely stay here again.
