On the recommendation of a friend, I gave the Midway Motel and Cottages a try.

Despite my friends recommendation, I must say that I didn't expect much, but from the moment I drove in, I was impressed. The grounds look like a small oasis carved out of the woods and the plantings were simple, but appealing.

I stayed in one of the 2 cottages on the grounds and had a terrific time. Sally, the owner of Midway, and the terrific house keeping staff make sure that everything is as clean as can be. The rooms were spotless and they seemingly think of everything. The kitchen in our cottage was well stocked with pots, pans and everything a family needs.

The facility has several family oriented outdoor games integrated into its lovely grounds. My kids enjoyed the shuffle board and badminton net, but never got around to playing the horseshoe toss. In addition, Midway has a common room with coffee available in the morning and many board games. Ordinarily my kids have no interest in board games, but I found them inviting each other, and me, to play boggle and other classics.

The best activity of all, to us, was riding on the bike path. Every morning we would take our bikes off the rack and walk to the bike path. We rode to multiple beaches (both bay and ocean) and into the next town to explore and have lunch. The Cape Cod National Seashore is a short ride away as are countless other activities, making the Midway is a great place to enjoy nature and the best that Cape Cod has to offer.

This motel is in a perfect location for those who want to enjoy nature on the Cape. The buildings are in the woods with lots of nice trees, you see birds and it is quiet. The grounds are very well kept and beautiful in the summer with flower beds and shrubs. Being in North Eastham gives easy access to some of the less crowded areas to the north in Wellfleet and Truro. The Cape Cod Rail Trail is adjacent to the property and you can access anything from there on a bike: beaches, ponds, trails and the good stuff like soft serve ice cream, delicious lobster rolls and fun restaurants. Sally, the owner/manager, is a neat lady. She can direct you to the best of anything you are looking for. Ask for her recommendation for the lobster rolls! She can tell you how to get what you need and where. She has maps and brochures for everything!! The rooms are super clean and are kept that way, day by day. TV works fine and your laptop works well here also. Rates are very reasonable for the qualtiy and service in this lovely location. We came for the NEEI conference. This is our third year. These accomodations are the best and the convenience of the bike trail makes the morning trip a real pleasure. I do not usually take the time to do reviews. This place is so good I had to write a strong recommendation.

Room Tip: There is wide variety of accomodations.

Hi Sally,
Just want to thank you for the lovely stay at your cottage. As usual the grounds were immaculate, the rooms were spotless and the hospitality was genuine. We enjoyed our little chit-chats in the morning and evenings with you, you always have such nice words to say. Please extend our gratitude to Dottie and her helpers, they are tireless workers and put a lot of heart into what they do. The Cape was beautiful, as usual, and we loved having the rail trail and beaches right out our back door.
Stay healthy and happy in the coming year, we miss you already and can’t wait until next summer!
All our best,
Yvonne, Tom, Tommy & Iggy
PS – you make a great pot of coffee!

The Midway has it all- an ideal location with proximity to ocean beaches and freshwater ponds, restaurants, and well-placed for a day trip to Wellfleet or Provincetown, a short wooded path to the Cape Cod Rail Trail for biking or walking, immaculately kept grounds with beautiful plantings, and sparkling clean, carefully decorated accommodations ... not to mention a gracious host, Sally, who has welcomed our family back each time we've returned! We've had the pleasure of staying in the larger of the Midway's two cottages, the Barn, on our visits to the Cape, and it is a delight- spacious and full of every imaginable kitchen item, as well as an outdoor gas grill and picnic table, flat screen TV, and an air conditioner and fans (we love using the ceiling fan to enjoy the beautiful Cape breezes!) Rates are very reasonable, and daily housekeeping is provided in the cottage as well. In addition to the two cottages, the Midway offers a variety of motel rooms, including an efficiency with a kitchen- lots of great lodging options for Cape travelers. We discovered the Midway many years ago when our kids were little, and had wonderful memories of our stays there; we were thrilled to return this year with our college-aged son and discover that it lives up to all of our expectations! We look forward to future stays at the Midway, and we highly recommend this lovely spot for a wonderful Cape Cod vacation.

I booked a last minute trip to the cape and came upon this hotel in a google search... the reviews of "clean" attracted me and my conversation with Sally (the owner) gave me the impresson that the motel was well cared for. Sally was very helpful and flexible and I spent the last night of my trip in a beautiful cottage with a wonderful kitchen, dining area and sitting room. There was also a small picnic table and grill (complete with propane and fire starter wand). Everything looked barely used and extremely clean. On top of all the cooking essentials, the bathroom and bedroom were decorated beautifully in a country decor and even the towels smelled like they had come in from the line on a spring day. Too much fun to have on the cape so the TV went unused. I was very impressed and surprised on how nice everything was considering how reasonable the nightly rate. I met the head of housekeeping as well and she was very professional and accomodating. Would highly recommend and the location set back with mature trees with the bike/running path in the back of the property is a big plus too.

Room Tip: If you can, stay in one of the cottages, even if you're travelling alone. You'll feel right...

We've been staying at the Midway Motel for many many years on our visits to the Cape and always enjoy being there. The rooms are super clean, spacious, and pleasantly decorated. It's a quiet and relaxing place to be. I love the morning coffee in the common room. We always get the whale watch package with breakfast both mornings. Sally, the owner, is always glad to see us and welcomes us back each time. The Midway has direct access to the bike trail. The National seashore beaches are a few minutes away by car and Provincetown is about a half-hour drive. I always look forward to our visits to the Cape and the Midway and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for an enjoyable experience at the Cape.
