“Visit on the Cape”
Reviewed July 8, 2014

We checked in on Saturday afternoon... Friendly staff...We had a room on the second floor facing the pool...The room was clean. We needed more towels which they gave us...There was no hair dryer in the room...but when I asked for one at the front desk, They handed me a brand new one still in box.....The bed was comfortable......Woke up to doors down the end slamming...The pool and the grounds were nicely kept...I wouldn't call it a top place to stay...but all and all it was okay...: )

Just had two nights here. The place is old fashioned...don't mind that, in fact we expected it. The room was damp smelling and the maid never came to make the beds after the first night. No hair dryer, no tissues in the room, screen on window had a hole in it, no coffee facilities...all these things should be standard when paying over $100 a night in June. On the Cape you either pay a lot of money for decent accommodations or settle for this type of place. We won't go again, actually we won't go to the Cape again.

When I read the reviews on this hotel I was a bit nervous to book it. What a surprise though, almost everything was more than we expected. We took a room with a kitchenette since we were on a tight budget and wanted to make our own meals. True the furniture was is dated so it gave the room an older look. However, the room was spotless, we were provided with necessary toiletries, the kitchen was supplied with a stove, fridge, sink, coffee machine, toaster, pots, pans, dishes and utensils. The ice machine worked fine. The grounds are pretty, the whirlpool and two pools were great. They do have a sauna which I wanted to use but ran out of time. The hotel is close to the beach, restaurants, shops, supermarket, pharmacy, etc. Only stayed one night but would definitely go back to this hotel again. Oh and the best part was how reasonably priced it was for the area!!!!!!!!

What a surprise this place was. Large rooms. VERY CLEAN!! (this was the Standard Room - lower level). Windows in front and back. Indoor, outdoor pool and jacuzzi were very clean. Beds were in great shape. Pillows and blankets were good condition. No refridgerator, coffee maker, microwave and TV was older type (not an issue for me). Beach isn't really walking distance, close but if your lugging stuff, drive there. They DON'T take American Express (matter of fact, most of Cape Cod didn't). Parking is in the rear away from most of the hotel. Lower level has an overhang and chairs in front of the room. Grassy area for kids to play. A few places nearby for eating. Was there 3rd weekend of Sept - weather was GEORGOUS, water was still warm, no one on the island and hotel was empty. Overall a pleasurable experience.

Room Tip: Lower level has an overhang and chairs in front of the room.

Rooms were old and dated; 50's furnishings! Stove/refrigerator combination but no microwave.
Room in photo was obviously painted a light color for brightness (not showing dark paneling). Lighting was poor. Only bright spot was the staff; very friendly and accommodating!!

After noticing that our first lodging choices were booked, we opted to purchase an online, one-night stay at the Colonial Village Motel & Cottages for a last minute fall getaway weekend. We’d not been there before.

Upon arrival, we entered the registration area and said hello to a sour-faced woman who I immediately surmised should not be working a “people-person” job.

In anticipation of a luncheon were were to attend, we arrived at the motel early to check in around 11 am. The idea of checking in at 11 am caused the woman at the desk to roll her eyes. She said that since check-out was at 11 am, she could not offer us a room yet, as housekeeping hadn’t done it’s routine work. We were told that check-in was at 3 pm. We let her know we’d try back around 1 pm anyway, to which she said it might be possible that a room would be available by then. We hoped she might ask housekeeping to prioritize our room in their cleaning schedule.

On our return around 1:10, I asked, “How’s our timing?” the woman at the desk pursed her lips and shrugged her shoulders as she gave us our keys, but not before pulling out the guest card for another couple, mistaking us for some other lodgers. However deadpan, we received an adequate description of how to get to the parking lot and our rooms.

(Let me fast forward to say that when we returned to the motel late that night, there were about six vehicles in the parking lot, indicating that the motel was far from full. This means that unless the staff shuts down rooms after the summer high season, it was quite possible that the woman at the desk could have been able to assign us to a room that had not been slept in the night before and did not need cleaning, thus allowing us an earlier check-in.)

Yes, as other reviewers here have commented, the furnishings and fixtures are outdated and the rooms can smell musty. However, our room was clean and orderly, and guests do get free Wi-Fi access. There are pleasant-looking indoor and outdoor pools on the grounds. I would not recommend walking barefoot on the carpeting. The beds did not have enough mattress support. After running the shower water for 10 minutes, it was still lukewarmish rather than hot. But having lived in third world countries where people have far less, I can overlook such issues. While I didn’t relish paying three-star rates for a motel of lesser quality, the real deal-breaker for me is attitude. A friendly, hospitable, can-do attitude can make up for what is lacking in fancy décor, and this, we did not get.

I would recommend that the tough-love-talking Anthony Melchiorri from the Travel Channel TV show “Hotel Impossible” pay a visit, not to necessarily upgrade the motel’s amenities -- which can cost millions -- but to straighten out the unpleasant woman who thinks her customers owe her a living.

My room was old and dated.
The wooden windows did not open, except in the bathroom, so you could not air the place out. It smelled a bit stale.

A dresser drawer almost fell off its rails as you as you opened it.

The front desk person was not friendly.

I would not stay in this motel again, and I do not recommend it.

It is supposedly a family hotel. In my humble opinion, it should be sold to some company that would put about a million dollars or more into renovating it.

Granted, the room rates would have to go up, and I suppose that there is a place for low-price motels, but I think that this motel could do more upkeep. But as long as a motel is making money because it is in a high-demand area, I doubt it will change much.
