“Short Stay was alright”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

I liked it. It was older styled but clean. We needed a place in the middle of cape to go both sides and yarmouth is a good town for that. Price was fair and easy to find. Sufficient for someone looking for just a place to stay while on cape. none of the glitz and glamore but just the neccesities.

I never write online reviews but I feel I have to for this one. I needed a comfy, and economical place to stay in the capes for a weekend, and this was perfect! My room was spotless, there was cable, and great space for my things. The service was great and the owners were incredibly friendly and knowledgeable of the community. The motel is conveniently located by a variety of restaurants, beaches, and other shops within walking distance. If you're looking for somewhere inexpensive, comfortable, clean and convenient this is definitely the place to check in!

Room Tip: If you do not smoke make sure you mention this! (They separate the rooms accordingly.. which is awes...

Made an online booking. This place was extremely delightful. clean and well maintained. The price was very good compared to anything else being a lot more. Fridge,microwave,fresh towels everyday, extremely clean, and the biggest thing is location. everything is right there in close proximity. The beach is a short walk which is good cause there is no pool.

Pros: Good bed in one of our two rooms.
Gave us a kitchenette, since they gave away our king room.
Cheap.
Microwave and fairly large refrigerator in every room

Cons: No working air conditioners.
Room in poor condition
Not enough towels and no shampoo.
Noisy location.
Ugly grounds.
Never cleaned our room.
When I called to cancel our third night as a favor, they were unbelievably rude and yelled at me instead of listening to the reason I called.

Room Tip: Just don't stay here.

My husband and I booked this hotel on line, the rate was the most reasonable. When we pulled in however, I exclaimed that it looked like a "by the hour" hotel. NO landscaping, unless you call a heap of used tires, broken beds and trash by the far side, landscaping. The door lock really didn't work. VERY uncomfortable beds, you could feel every spring. Paper thin walls. I was awake all night due to the ajoining room banging their bed against the wall for hours. (others complained, they were asked to leave). I wouldn't use the blanket, had cigarette holes in it and looked very old, ditto for bedspreads. Dishes in cabinet were too greasy to touch, not enough outlets for fridge and microwave/coffee maker. Fridge was handy though. Place was clean, but just so decrepit I expected vermin to come out of the walls. NEVER again!

If you are visiting Cape Cod for the beaches and entertainment and do NOT plan on spending much time at your motel (basically just using it as a place to sleep), this motel is suitable. Stayed 1 night only in early August for $82 plus tax. Small pool that was not in working condition. Dark rooms - ours had a mini fridge and microwave. Motel provides multiple fresh, clean towels for use. Working color TV, WiFi, AC/heat =)! Staff was helpful, patient, and very amicable. Fabulous location in the middle of restaurants and ~8-10min (or less depending on which you choose) away from gorgeous Hyannis, Yarmouth & Dennis beaches.

Room Tip: Smoking rooms are available

See above. Also, the room was about 100degrees when i checked in at 830pm, a/c was off. Had to leave for awhile to let it cool off the room. Next time i make a reservation somewhere, I'll remember to ask to have the air turned on a few hours before I arrive!
