This is a typical drive-in motel with terraced rooms in a quiet location with well tended gardens. We had the deluxe king bed unit, which was small but well equiped with fridge and microwave, two easy chairs and a small table. About a mile away from the nearest beach and about two miles from the main shopping area of Chatham. A nice spot for a quiet couple of days. The only problem was the lack of sound insulation between units so we could hear water running, toilet flushing etc.

In Chatham for a wedding during peak season and had a hard time finding an affordable place. Chatham Motel was ideal ... Very clean rooms, decent size, convenient location, and the front desk staff is super helpful.

We have stayed in the Chatham Motel many times and found it a great bargain. This year we were delighted to find the rooms had been refurbished in 2013 and were in virtually new condition. Nothing like fresh paint, new bed and clean,clean bathroom to make the stay more enjoyable than ever. Recommend the Chatham Motel highly!

Room Tip: About half the rooms were refurbished in 2013 - ask for one of those.

We spent two nights here and had a great time. Lodging was super expensive in the area, and the Chatham Motel was very reasonably priced compared to most others in the area. It was a very quick drive into town, clean, and staff were very friendly. We had one of the newly renovated "school house" rooms which had a separate sitting area perfect for out toddler's crib. The grounds were large which was nice for our son to run around on. The pool looked nice though we didn't try it out. Great stay - we would definitely stay here again if we return to the Cape!

Room Tip: If you are traveling with a child who is still in a crib, make sure you ask for one of the rooms in...

We were recently there for our niece's wedding in the Cape. We found the motel to be clean and comfortable and had nice outdoor space for sitting around with other guests. The managers were very helpful and pleasant to deal with. We stayed for 4 nights. Price was reasonable and close to everything you need. Vending with bottled water was available outside which was handy. The place was well presented.

We stayed here for two nights, principally attracted by the price. It's just outside of downtown Chatham, an easy drive to the local restaurants. We visited post-Labor Day because we didn't want the summer Cape crowds and they were not there!

This motel is very clean. Our room, the largest one offered (who knew?), was immaculate. It was, indeed, large. Could have fit a twin bed in there easily, along with the two queens.

Our kids are grown but it looks like younger children would be happy here. The pool was inviting although we didn't accept. We did use the swings, though, recalling that childhood feeling.

The grounds are in apple-pie order. The owner/manager, Kevin, was super helpful, offering anything that we needed. We would definitely go back.

We had a great experience at the Chatham Motel. Rooms were clean and bathrooms were updated. Beds were really hard though, but we were so tired out every day we didn't care. The location was good, and despite being on a main road, it was very quiet. Would definitely stay here again.
