“a great place to overnight in hyannis”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2008

The Ocean Manor is a perfect option for a short stay in Hyannis. It is clean and is within walking distance to downtown. It's kind of like staying at your favourite Aunt's place...there's lot's of flower wallpaper and carpet....but the place is neat as a pin, and the woman who runs it will bend over backwards to accomodate you. It's not luxurious, but it is more than ample....and it is very reasonably priced, considering how inflated many of the prices are in Hyannis.

This was our first visit and we liked our stay, pleasant & nice. We went to Martha's and this place is very near to the ferry so walked over. We also spent some time near the beach across from the Ocean Manor.

  • Liked — Sandra was very nice and helpful.

Where do you stay for only one or two night? The Cape Cod Ocean Manor ... that's where! We got tickets to see Melissa Etheridge at the Melody Tent and needed a place to stay for a couple nights. Found Ocean Manor on the web, emailed them, got great communication back and booked 2 nights.

We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived! Our room was cozy and more importantly to me ... clean! We met the staff, Sondralee, Kelly and Lorraine, and the owner Martin and all were friendly, helpful and were honestly interested in our trip.

We will stay again when in the area.

I stayed at the Cape Cod Ocean Manor during each of the last 3 years and have never found it to be anything but wonderful.

The staff is warm, welcoming, thoughtful, and accomodating. The rooms are roomy, bright, clean, and cozy. It feels like a home away from home with the microwave, fridge, cable tv, and dvd player. It is just so easy to settle in and get comfortable. The beds are comfortable and the linens and towels are very nice. Having a deck off of the rooms is just great. The location is very good as Hyannis has so much to offer. The bathrooms have always been IMMACULATE.

In addition to the breakfast (muffins made from scratch), it's so nice that cookies, milk, and fresh fruit are always available.

Sandralee, Ashley, and Martin are absolutely fabulous hosts.

With the Cape Cod Ocean Manor being such a wonderful place to stay at moderate prices I consider it an unbeatable value.

We spent our 2nd Honeymoon at the Cape Cod Ocean Manor and we will never forget our wonderful experience! The room was nicely decorated and very clean. The staff was very attentive and friendly! The breakfast consisted of a choice of cereals, assorted fresh fruit, bagels, juices, fresh hot coffee, teas and delicious homemade muffins that Sandralee the Hostess bakes every morning! We had spectacular views of Nantucket Sound and beautiful birds along the salt marshes. The beaches were so close, we chose to walk or bike ride every morning. The town has many reasonably priced restaurants to choose from. The ferries are very close to the Bed and Breakfast so we visited Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket by ferryboat. The location is perfect. The Hostess, Sandralee is a doll and so are the girls. We can't wait to go back!!!

  • Liked — The Staff, the lovely room with views and the hot muffins!
  • Disliked — We loved everything!

his was just an OK place to stay. We had issues with the shower and turning it off. Also, we never saw a single person working here until we checked out in the morning. Our key was left in an envelope on the door of the office when we arrived at 2:00 p.m. even though the check-in time was 3:00 p.m.

The breakfast wasn't that great. The muffins were soggy and the coffee was an instant coffee.

Once nice touch was that there were wine glasses and a wine opener in the rooms, which we took advantage of. There was also a microwave and mini fridge in the room, great for taking leftovers back.

It has a view of a bunch of condo/apartment units across the street. The ocean is a distance away, and you could probably only see it on a really clear day.

The beds were very hard and covered in sheets that survived the 80's. One of the windows was just covered by a piece of lace, which made the room bright in the morning. Also, the screen door that lead to the "deck" was broken.

Would I stay here again? Probably not. I'd try another place out.

  • Liked — The Wine Glasses and Opener
  • Disliked — Didn't see any staff member until we checked out.

I was pleasantly surprised with the Ocean manor. i was very sceptical,but it was a great place. I WAS LOOKING FOR FLAWS BUT COULD NOT FIND ANYTHING NEGATIVE TO SAY.here is my detailed review. I had room NO 5

THE GOOD.

On Arrival we were given a warm welcome,with tea and cookies.
The folks were very very flexible as to our times and very accomodating,even let us park before we checked in and after we checked out so we could use the beach.
ROOM 5 , was large Cozy and had the most comfortable KING bed. Linens were high quality and pristine clean. You could tell it was freshly laundered. carpets were clean, and bathroom and towels were like any fine hotel.Soap and towels provided.
Room had distant ocean views and small balcony you can sit out on. Ocean Breezes right in the room if you open windows.
Bathroom is small but ULTRA clean, not a speck of dust or dirt.shower curtains clean as were the tiles.
Room has fridge, microwave, coffeemaker, great cable tv(foodnetwork,all major networks, disney , Nick ) phone, iron, hairdryer
Breakfast is muffins, fruit, cofeee, juice , and a variety of cereals.
MUFFINS SPECIAL MENTION - they are made from scratch mixed berry and chocolate chip , being a gourmet cook i can vouch for their fabulousness! no wonder every one raves about them.
The Deck is large and relaxing, and the Marsh at the back of the house is in a strange way relaxing too.
DONT BE PUT OFF BY THE SIZE OF THE HOUSE OR THE SMALL FOYER.Hosts are welcoming and so very helpful with local info. Sandra lee is lovely.

THE BAD - ( and i am really nitpicking here )

small foyer and reception area. Room had a lot of fake flower arrangements which need not have been there, bedlinens do not match the room and i did not like the color .
the site boasts ocean views, yes it does have ocean views but the ocean is in the distant, not like just outside the window .


BEACHES.

VETERANS BEACH PARK. - is really just opposite the bed and breakfast across teh road.it is partly the marina and had calm waters nice for kids. has place to shower change and lifeguard, toilets. large picnic area /park . no waves.

KALMUS BEACH ( public beach) - is a large large Beach stretch.
big waves, clean beach ,snack bar, bathrooms, shower , life guards.It is the best beach in Hyannis . Fine white sands and really a wonderful place for swimming as well.
In August it was Not at all crowded the two days we were there, (one day it was cloudy though) but not the crowds i had heard of ,unlike the packed craigville beach. It is the same as craigville beach which we visited as well but we liked this better.

now here is the best part , this great beach is only 4 minutes or less walk from the Ocean manor, how cool is that?
with 2 kids, strollers and all beach paraphanelia it took only 4 minutes. i was so thrilled about this location.
Restaurants, marina , ferries are all within walking distance of this bed and breakfast.

So give this place a try , it's not the height of luxury but we had a great sleep and more than anything it felt like home and the hosts were very accomodating and nice . I WILL BE GOING BACK FOR MY MINI BREAKS THERE AGAIN. it is so clean and comfortable and that is important to me .

  • Disliked — fake flowers in room
