I find this place for a reason it's cheap and close to everything. First time in cape cod so I will definitely be back again and recommend to my friends and family. Very friendly staff it's more like family run business. We chose the king size bed room very nice and clean we definitely recommend for couples.

When your hotel check-in experience begins with a list of DO NOTS its generally an indication that its not going to get better. This held true on this visit. In a very busy tourist market such as this, it is amazing that this type of property still exists. It is a 1950's style motor in where you park in front... More

Overall a disappointing stay. Pool had no water on Fourth of July weekend. 1960 wood paneling. Lighting poor. 1980 fat TV with about 10 channels. 1960 toilet and shower and 5 X 5 bathroom. Hot water with NO cold water turned on barely was warm. The see-through toilet paper that you need about 2 feet to feel safe from a... More

Our room was better than advertised so we were happy with that. It had a vintage feel to it, especially the décor. Reminded me of my childhood days coming to the Cape with my father. The staff was nice and the price was unmatchable. They even let my son stay for a discounted rate because we were honest. I recommend... More

The staff was very accommodating about late check-in which we were thankful for. The room was nice, no smell and also clean. It seemed like the interior was recently painted, the walls were spotless. Great location! I would definitely stay again. The only issue I had was there was no indoor pool, but I should have checked online before booking.... More

The place was disgusting. Nothing but junkies for next door neighbors. The heat is on a timer. The fridge was full if mold and the management sucked. They tried ripping me off each time I was there! There are too many rules for such a disgusting place!

My wife and I decided to stay here and were very surprised at the friendliness of the people. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The sheets and towels were all new and overall it was a rather pleasant experience. I would definitely recommend this as an affordable alternative and will be staying there again.

My wife and I stayed her for 2 nights very recently. The only reason you might want to choose this place is because of location. Short drive to Hyannis and Chatham and about an hour to Provincetown and Truro. Our room smelled very musty and did not have a coffee maker, iron, or a blow dryer. The internet was as... More

We stayed here for two nights and it was super affordable! The best part is that the motel is in a convenient location. Restaurants (ie. Pancake Man, Geraldi's Cafe) and mini-golf/arcade are all within walking distance. We would stay here again the next time we're back in Cape Cod!

I have never reviewed anything before online, but I thought it was important for me to review this establishment. I think the photos speak for themselves. That being said, I would stay here again, but my mother definitely wouldn't! I stayed 3 nights; Friday cost $169, Sat $229, and Sun $75. If I were to return to this motel I... More
