We chose this motel for a 3-night mid-cape mini vaca, after reading other positive reviews. The hotel is a throwback - pine-panelled walls, ancient furnishings and well-past-their-lifetime mattresses, flooring, and fixtures. When we arrived our room had all windows and doors standing open, evidently to help disperse the overwhelming mildew smell. Issues: bathmat covered with mold, mattress springs completely shot, spiderwebs in many corners, coverlets grungy. Although rooms with 2 doubles are advertised at $84, we were told they only hold 3 people, and since we had 2 kids, we HAD to take an odd unit with a miniscule room holding a double bed and a 2nd room with 2 twins for $124. Yes, the grounds are gorgeous - obviously the owner spends all her time on gardening - and the cleaning staff is pleasant and doing the best they can with what they've got. It became a family joke to rename the hotel from the Pine Knot to the Clean-Not, Sleep-Not, Comfortable-Not, UnSmelly-Not. We'll be back - NOT!
