Centrally located for day trips, dining and beaches, this motel is comfortable to come back to after a long day of sun, beach, shopping and exploring. The room is a good size. The pools (2) and their areas are nice and clean. We observed couples, families with young children & teens and it's amazing that the evenings were quiet. That's a treat!

Exceptional front desk staff, very friendly and able to accommodate my needs and questions. Location was great. Only downside was that the bathroom door didn’t close properly. Parking spot was slightly harder to find at night after 10pm.

Great indoor and outdoor pools, good location, rooms were clean. I would stay here again, my only complaints were the water pressure when the sprinklers came on, showers didn't work for some of us at all, and some of us just experience a drop in pressure. They quickly turned the sprinklers off upon our telling them this. Thank you!

The Cape Sands Inn is a great choice if you are staying in the area and need an affordable option. For the best price book directly on the Cape Sands Inn website. We found the room to be very clean. The king size bed was comfortable. There was also a table and two sturdy chairs in the room as well as a mini fridge and a coffee pot. Upon arrival I was also told where to find a communal microwave if we needed one as well as free ice. Both the indoor and outdoor pools were clean. The fire pit with chairs were a nice touch. We were able to walk to several restaurants from our location. We drove to Seagull beach in under 10 minutes and enjoyed a day on the beach. We also saw two beautiful swans in the body of water across the street from the hotel. The only negative was the bathroom. It is older. They set up a dehumidifier to try to help with moisture and you may have to empty it when you stay there. I don't think there is much more they could do about it and if they updated all of the bathrooms I'm sure the price would be much higher. I did not get a deluxe room. We booked a standard king bed room. I don't know if the bathrooms are the same in those rooms. All of the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. I don't think you could get a more affordable option in the area.

Gook location, comfortable room, not too small. Just outside Hyannis. Close to many restaurants. Room has a larger-than-usual refrigerator. This was a good base for day trips all over the Cape. No complaints.

We found the pool was clean and the chairs were comfortable. The beds were comfortable and the service was excellent. No problems with noise at night. We liked that we were on the outer edge of the chaos of the mall area. It felt safer... Mostly families stayed here.

Good value for the price. Located on a busy road that makes it difficult to get out at busy times but otherwise fairly quiet given the location. Pretty central to various areas of the Cape. The flower boxes were a nice touch.

A deluxe room will have a dumpster view. Dumpster is left open, with critters. Huge tarp covering wood for fire pit flapping with wind will lull you to sleep unless you can’t stand the flies in your room from the dumpster. Pools are dirty and not filled to proper levels. In room fridge is rusted and paint chipping…just to begin. I would not recommend…staff could have cared less that these were complaints as I’m sure they have heard it before.

We very much value what our guests have to say, obviously, as we have thousands of reviews for our property left by satisfied guests. Our deluxe rooms are our most popular rooms after bayside due to the beautiful balcony and direct access to our garden from the first floor rooms. Our pools are crystal clear and that is one of the attraction to our property - as we have invested heavily into installing commercial filtering systems. Not sure what caused you to falsify your review, but we would sure have liked the opportunity to resolve your issues if given the opportunity.

Very reasonable pricing, rooms were very clean. There was an outdoor pool, indoor pool and sauna indoor. Plenty of parking spots right in front of your room. Checking in and out was easy and the staff was friendly. The only thing I didn’t like was it’s location, we still had to drive to the beach.

This was the first time staying here.The room was really small but very clean.The little balcony on the back was very cute and relaxing.We loved the outdoor pool and also the indoor pool.The hot tub was the best!The down parts of hotel is the walls are so thin you can hear everything and if you are trying to sleep late at night someone above you can be loud.I noticed they wanted to reinforce quiet time after 10 not happening people hang out all around this motel.I might stay another time because it was so close to beaches and restaurants.

Hi Dorian, Our old cape architecture is both a gift and a curse - while we try to enforce quiet time after 10, it sometimes escapes from the fact that people are vacationing and don't like being told what to do! Next time though, please let us know and we'd be happy to ask our other guests to be more respective. Awaiting your next visit!
