After spending 5 nights at the Old Landing I feel very qualified to write an accurate description and give a sense of the place. Located in Dennis Port, the motel provided central, easy access to all areas of the Cape. My preference is towards quieter locations and the warm beach right behind the motel didn't attract the overwhelming hoards of people that other beaches do so often. With the second floor room at the rear of the motel, the ocean view added to both the pleasure and privacy of the stay.

David the owner is extremely hospitable, and conversation was plentiful and fun!

The room itself reminded me of the simple summer house that was comfortable enough but ultimately acted more as a home base of which you'd leave and go out to the beach or explore the Cape. If you are looking for a chain motel feel this will not appeal to you. Better to see the Old Landing for what it is... a superbly located, clean, affordable motel that is simple and comfortable!

The only caution is that if you tend to sleep in, the room will not get completely dark and daylight will penetrate the curtains and blinds to some extent. Best to bring an eye mask if this bothers you. Or even better get up early and enjoy the day!

This motel is located in a very convenient setting to the beach. It offers all the comforts of a simple, clean and welcoming atmosphere. The sea breeze in the morning surely delights the senses. Dave, the innkeeper is very knowledgeable about the area and fosters a family friendly stay!

Just got back from our four night stay at Old Landing Motel. Older motel but extremely clean. Dave, the owner, was fantastic. Very friendly and made great coffee and cappuccino too! There was a problem with our air conditioner and after being unable to fix it, he went out and bought another one! The location can't be beat! We would definitely stay again!

The owner was so great, I have never felt more welcome. It's in the perfect place, and it's a very short walk across the street to the beach. I could lay in bed and look out the window at the ocean; it was very relaxing. Everything you need is close by. We would love to visit again!! :)

I have just returned from another 2-week stay at the Old Landing Motel and it felt just like coming home! Owner, Dave Maslin makes you feel relaxed the moment you walk into the booking office, making you coffee and chatting about what's been happening in both your life's. The whole Dennisport area is peaceful with a lovely little beach at the end of Sea Street, which is where The Old Landing Motel is situated. From here you can visit any part of the Cape within an hour - traffic willing - so it makes a great base camp.

Thanks again Dave and see you again soon.

My wife and I visited the​ ​​Dennisport area ​ last fall​ for some personal business (house hunting trip) and wanted to keep our lodging and meal costs reasonable..

Based on other reviews on Tripadvisor, we decided to stay at the ​Old Landing Motel. This place is an older style motel with well maintained and immaculate rooms. We chose one of the larger ocean view rooms. Everything about our stay was perfect especially being right at the beach. Our hosts (David and Daniela) really try to assure that everything is satisfactory; and they succeed.

Since we were on a trip for personal business reasons, we used the hotel's wireless internet network extensively. This was our only area of concern. We had a weak ​but workable ​signal ​but the ocean view rooms are furthest from the source. There are other rooms and areas on the grounds which receive a strong, speedy signal and often we worked from the pool area ... beautiful new pool I may ad..

Overall, we recommend the ​ Old Landing Motel highly and would never stay anywhere else. We shall be returning in early June to continue our house hunting.

Room Tip: Ask for the rooms overlooking the ocean!!!

Wonderful place & friendly manager. Yes it's an older motel, but well maintained & clean!! Nice pool and sandy beach - that was all we needed. Our room had a nice quiet mini frig which we loved. The price was circa 1980, and a great bargain. We enjoyed the convenience of a motel--easy to carry stuff from car to room without any halls or stairs. Very quiet, just crashing ocean waves on the windy nights. I would stay here again and recommend The Old Landing to anyone on a budget who likes a clean & simple oceanfront motel.
