This was our 3rd year staying at Cape Pines. It is comfortable, convenient and oh so clean! I especially love the beautiful pool area. Such a treat to come back to after a day at the beach or exploring the island. We'll be back again!

Far but worth it!! Nice, clean and quiet place. My boys really enjoyed the pool. The best part is that is pet friendly!!!! Mak our dog really enjoyed his first trip to the beach. A little warning for those who don't enjoy the visit of little frogs... they come out at night and stick to your door.

My family came for a week vacation in August. As soon as we arrived we walked into the cleanest rooms we have ever seen! Our room was two bedrooms and a couch bed. The beds were very comfortable and the room stayed cool all day. The room also had a kitchen, well equipped with the necessities to cook, so we... More

I was glad that we chose this place for our short stay. The room (No: 25) we stayed was spacious, comfortable and quiet. The ambiance of the pool was very nice during evening hours. The staff members were very friendly and approachable and helped with local knowledge. I would certainly recommend this place.

room smelt, said we had a downstairs room and it was upstairs, wife has bad knees and had a very hard time climbing the stairs. it was good for a night and I am sure if we had a downstairs room it would have had a better rating.

We just got home from a two night stay at the Cape Pines Motel (July 25th and 26th, 2016). We found it to be clean, quiet, and comfortable. We read many reviews before booking a room.

Cape Pines is a great place to stay! Nice and clean place to stay. You wouldn't think it by first appearance due to its an older motel....but we were surprised! Will definitely come back for our weekend getaways!

Great place, staff, and accommodations. Pet friendly, my dog had a blast. Room was clean, we'll kept, the bed was comfy, and the price is right. What more could you ask for? I've been staying in Buxton for almost 30 yrs. Cape pines definitely is on the top of the list of better places to stay.
