This was our second stay here at the Old Tavern Motel & Inn. The staff are very friendly and the room is clean. It is a bit dated but we really spent very little time in the room as most of our time was spent outdoors. The beds could use new mattresses - but if you like a softer mattress... More

Great family run hotel in the centre of Orleans. Waking distance to a everything you would need. It has everything you need up to date but still had the charm of the Cape that people look for when going down for a getaway. The pool is nicer than you would expect. A nice change after a day a the beach.... More

We recently stayed here for 2 nights. While the small tavern part of the inn was neat, the motel does not appear to have had any major upkeep in decades. Our bathroom had no fan, so we had to open the bathroom window when showering, which happens to be at eye level for anyone who is walking on the deck... More

Good location, close to restaurants, shops and beach. Staff is friendly/helpful and the pool is a plus. It needs a makeover badly though. Our air conditioner didn't work well and the appliances were outdated. For a night or two, it works.

I booked here based on current reviews which stated this was a wonderful place. I guess my idea of wonderful and those who wrote those reviews are completely different. This hotel might be if the owners put some money back into it. The pool looks like it is from the 60's, as well as the décor inside the rooms/bathrooms. One... More

The original building is very cool. The historical main building should make this the best motel in Orleans, however, the motel needs some upgrades. It's difficult to plug in electronic devices. The bed is too soft and the linen is not something you would want in your bed at home. My room did have two comfortable chairs! Service is relaxed.... More

Had a room that was supposed to have a Pool view, it did not. Not a huge issue since the pool was not open. Out of season. Quaint,but outdated decor. Issues with a few things. Wallpaper peeling in the room, bathroom vent fan did not work at all. Hot water in shower and bath was not hot. We were there... More

This is my third experience at Olde Tavern Motel & Inn and each time I find myself making excuses why staying there is acceptable. The location is great (true), the pool is well tended to and private (true) - HOWEVER - convincing myself that the decor is "kitchy" no longer flies. This motel requires a serious facelift - the beds... More

I booked this hotel, based on the reviews from trip advisor. We were quite disappointed. The room "looked" clean, but the sheets on the bed, did look that they have been changed after the last visit. I asked for a new bed sheet, and they have provided, no question asked. When we arrived the person at the desk said the... More
