Room was very clean, contactless check in/check out worked well. Room was bigger than I expected which was great! Housekeeping did not enter room while we were there due to the pandemic, however, if you needed anything all you had to do was call the office and they would leave it on the chair outside your door. Location was great, just outside the village of Chatham, and it’s very easy to get to any of the surrounding towns from here. We would definitely stay here again!

During COVID-19 they are very helpful and bring the key right out to your car upon arrival. Management was very accommodating. The room/suite where we stayed was very quaint and quiet as well. We stayed n the old schoolhouse on the 1st floor. Very nice!

This was our third time staying at the Chatham Motel, and once again we loved it! Our room was at the back of the property, so a bit more private and quiet that those towards the front. The room was spacious, very clean, had two huge comfortable beds, small fridge, microwave, nice bathroom, and easy-to-program A/C. An added bonus was the sparkling pool (open 9 AM to dusk) which our grandkids enjoyed when they came to visit for the day. The property is close to downtown Chatham, restaurants, and several beaches. The room rates are reasonable, and the couple who own the motel are very friendly and available on site if you should need any assistance during your stay. Highly recommend the Chatham Motel! We will be back!!

This motel is not what I am used to. But the owner was extremely accommodating when we needed to switch to a more upgraded, cleaner room. It is what it is - a Motel. No frills, at all. Not super comfortable, but it was clean, and again, the owner and staff were super nice and did their best under the COVID restrictions and challenges we are all facing. I wouldn't stay here again, but I am grateful for our experience and we had a safe place to stay during our time in Chatham. Make sure to bring food or be prepared to go out and get your breakfast as there is no restaurant there.

The Chatham Motel Delivers Cleanliness, Convenience and Value

An old fashioned motel (there is even a bottle opener attached to the frame of the bathroom door) that is spotless and well maintained. The rooms are spacious, functionally furnished, and have all the amenities. The pool is great for kids and there are outdoor grills and picnic tables. Extremely good value.

For the last 10 years of so, my friends and I spend a few days at the Cape fishing.
The only choice for us to stay each year is the Chatham Motel.
The rooms are clean, comfortable, and easily accessible. ( parking space right in front of room)
Also, the motel is on ground level, so no carrying suitcases etc up the stairs
The grounds are immaculate as with the swimming pool area.
The front desk people are friendly and more than accommodating.
The Chatham Motel is a terrific place for a Cape Cod visit.

I stayed at this Motel several times and love it. The rooms are modern and clean. No dusty, stained carpet. A modern hard wood floor. The bathroom is perfect, Cape Cod colors on the walls and white wainscoting. It was completely renovated not long ago.

This close to town motel is perfect for an affordable trip to Chatham and the Cape. Halfway between Chatham and Harwich, it is clean, quiet, accessible and away from the crowds of Chatham. Very close to all the sites and shopping of Chatham, including the Fish Pier (seals), trails and beaches, it has wonderful restaurants nearby which are not crowded or overpriced. Highly recommend this spot for a quiet, affordable getaway on the Cape.

I found the employees that I had any contact with were always very helpful & always had time to answer any of our questions. They really seemed to enjoy working at whatever jobs they were doing at the time I approached with a question. Any request we had for extra towels or coffee were always taken care of immediately. We highly recommend staying at The Chatham Motel.

The Chatham Motel was the perfect "basecamp" during our time in Cape Cod...even though it was right off a main road, it was very quiet and calm during our stay. The pool was refreshing and a nice plus, and the room itself was super clean and had a cozy, well thought out design. Its location in Chatham is perfect for going to many beaches within a half hour radius, and there are so many shops and restaurants nearby. We can't wait to stay here again - for the price, you can't beat the quality of this cared for motel!
