3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

This was just your basic motel/hotel room with an exterior entrance. The amenities were a few years dated and you could see evidence of poor carpentry. That being said it was clean of anything unsanitary so it fit the bill just fine. It was a little strange that they advertised free wifi and passed out the password like candy, but... More

This place was pretty much a godsend after our long trip to the cape. We arrived late late at night (or early early in the morning) to the Blue Dolphin Inn. We called in ahead and told them we were going to be late, and they told us at the front desk that it wasn't going to be a problem,... More

For those who don't know what Cape Cod is like these days, at least in the summer, be forewarned that an oasis of tranquility it is not, unless you have already planned how to get off and stay off Route 6. Our bus from Boston dropped us right at the driveway to the Blue Dolphin -- an unexpected convenience --... More

There's nothing really wrong with this motel, it's just not going to knock your socks off. We found our room to be very clean and well maintained. The motel is old, likely dating back to the 60's, so the layout, room size, etc. hearken back to that era. The rooms have recently been given a cosmetic refresh so carpets, bedding,... More

This was more or less a last minute booking. I usually stay elsewhere but none of my usual hotels were available for this weekend. I have previously stayed here but it has been a few years. Nothing fancy about this hotel but for the price it is somewhat decent. It could certainly use some upgrades and better cleaning however.

We just spent a full week at the Blue Dophin Inn. With all of the 5 Star ratings I feel guilty only scoring it 3 Stars or what this site calls average, 5 is excellent. It is a very nice motel at a good price. The beds were comfortable, the linen and pillows were like new, the wifi free, the... More

Wonderful location, close to beaches, attractions and food. Room was very clean, beds very comfortable. Price unbeatable. Across the street from movies, drive-in theatre, mini golf. Restaurant on property, did not try but always busy - breakfast only. Pool very clean and plenty of seating. Small back patio.

We enjoyed a very comfortable stay in the room which was a surprise as it doesn't look like much from the outside. The addition of a laundromat is very helpful and came in handy! The hotel is easy to find and well located - perfect for getting to see PTown but without spending an absolute fortune. The only critisism is... More

Check in was promising, with restaurant recommendations from the clerk and the WiFi password on the back of the keys. The lock in the doorknob was balky. It worked hard and could only be locked with the key. The deadbolt above was keyed differently and could only be worked from the inside. Although the room had a faint musty smell,... More
