“Fresh, simple elegance, geared to guest needs, location perfect for all directions from south shore.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012 via mobile

We stayed three separate times caring for an elderly relative nearby. Hosts made our stay much easier during a difficult time. Breakfast was easy and varied a little each day. Accommodations were just like the online pictures , we stayed in three different rooms. Clean as a whistle and white comfy bed linens. The only recommendation I have would be to put an Adirondack chair in each room for tv watching when you don't want to watch from bed.
Definitely the best buy motel on the Cape!

This is my husband's and my first visit to Cape Cod. I read overwhelming positive reviews from TripAdvisor members about this place and was excited to see what the buzz was all about. The Escape Inn exceeded my expectations. Holly gave great recommendations on things to do when I made my reservation. Mike gave great tips on where to dine when I checked into the hotel. The room is so cute and more importantly very clean. Check out this place the next time you are in town. You will not be disappointed!

Great experience, Mike and Holly have created a little home away from home on the Cape. They offer friendly, personal service and a great beachside ambience. All for a great value. We would definitely recommend to friends and family for a quiet romantic getaway and we will be back.

Do not let the outside fool you. Very nice, clean and airy rooms...all have queen beds with two (2) rooms having double queens..Bathrooms are clean and well stocked...nice breakfast for the added touch.

Holly and Michael welcome you as if you we're in their home..

No question we will return...

Modernised motel with friendly owners.

Very clean and tidy, though somewhat minimalistic with wooden floors.

Reasonable continental breakfast included.

Free wifi in room (a little weak).

Reasonably-priced stopoff. Recommended.

The room was big and very clean. The hosts were very welcoming and the breakfast was excellent. I only wish it had been warm enough to use the pool. Michael and Holly were able to give us directions to beaches and other places to go.

Stayed here for a couple of nights and biked the Cape Cod Rail Trail. This is an older motel that has been updated quite nicely. Great value for the price. Very clean. Comes with a continental breakfast. The owners are very helpful and pleasant to talk with. We would definately stay here again.
