Just stayed 2 nights with extended family. It is a truly lovely place - clean, great family pool, super ocean access and kind, friendly staff. Yes, rooms are simple but who spends time in the room? You have all that you need here and price is right! Would definitely go again!

It is anice that its on the beach but it is very old looking and more of a motel style. The pool is a bit small, also some of the rooms are very small, but overall not a terrible stay for the location.

First time staying here. We've stayed in many hotels on the Cape. Definitely a hidden gem! Same price as most oceanfront hotels but nicer accommodations. Immaculate. Friendly staff. Good size rooms with full kitchen. The only issues I found which weren't bad but just better amenities. Larger tv, providing beach chairs, new mattresses. Otherwise great hotel. We'll definitely be back!

The hotel is clean, lovely, and beautifully situated. The only problem is that they allow people to listen to music on the beach. Total downer being forced to listen to country music (which I cannot stand) all week, played by a large family group who refused to lower their obnoxious music, mixed in with a dash of dance music being...

We found this reasonably priced hotel on Trip Advisor. It is a small, clean, friendly, family run business, right on the beach. The pool area had recently been redone and they had great chaise lounge chairs overlooking the water, without going on the beach. The beach was big enough for the size of the resort and the water was calm.... More

My most reviewed on tripadvisor where to begin.... It's still the most idyllic spot in Yarmouth! The majority of the staff is incomparable, I say majority because when somethings not right you want the 'right' person to be hearing you. Over $250 a night w a 3 night minimum, in Yarmouth, should mean ice in an ice maker, non paying... More

Nantucket hotel prices are crazy and Hyannis hotel prices are not much better! If you get out out of Hyannis a few miles you will find The Surfcomber in South Yarmouth where the prices are still reasonable. The hotel is right on the ocean with it's own beach and pool.
