“Best Place to Stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

I've stayed at the Midway Motel a couple of times now, and I plan to stay there for all foreseeable trips to the Cape! The location is convenient (right on route 6) but it's set back on a shady lot. You definitely do not feel like you're on Rt. 6. The office staff is very nice, and the main thing is that the rooms are immaculate. They're not brand new , but exceptionally neat and clean, with coffee and refrigerator. You can't beat the rates, either.

The Midway Motel was and is our favorite choice to stay on Cape Cod. We returned to the Midway Motel after years and found the same wonderful place we had enjoyed in 2004. We think it is a very good hub to explore Cape Cod, close to the Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary and nice beaches. All the quarters we stay at this time, 10th to 16th October 2012, and also in the past were very clean and well-equipped. The first two nights we spent in the “Midway Depot”. We became very lucky, because we got the chance to spend the rest of our vacation in “The Barn”. This cottage is pretty nice! All was super clean and the interior is in a good style. We’re enamored in this cozy cottage. We’ll be sure, that we come back within the next years to stay in “The Barn” again. Warm thanks to Sally, the owner and on site manager, for all her efforts to make our stay comfortable. She makes us feel so at home and treats us like old friends. Many thanks also to Larry and the other crew members, particularly the housekeeping.

We (wife and I) stayed there in the early summer 2012. The place was clean, well maintained, and actually pleasant to hang out at. We got the kitchenette. Everything was immaculate. There is a nice commons area with seating and games. Outdoor grills are available. Despite its being right on highway 6, the wooded lot feels serene and welcoming. For me, a big plus was being right on the rail trail, which let me take my rental bike to a beach or into Orleans for a bit of quick shopping without having to fight car traffic. The owner goes out of her way to make you comfortable.

As many of these posts attest the Midway is the preferred choice for guests on the Cape year after year. Thank you for your recommendation! It is now our preferred choice too. A home away from home. Thank you to Sally and her staff.

We love the Barn as it has room enough for us to invite another couple to stay with us. The Barn is always very clean, cozy, and comfortable. Sally, the owner, lives on the premises. She makes us feel so at home and treats us like old friends. It is so close to Provincetown and this year we did a Whale Watch which was excellent. Also very close to the National Seashore which is a real American treasure. Discovered First Encounter Beach (the site of the first encounter between Native Americans and the Pilgrims prior to their settling in Plymouth). This is a nice beach for children as well as adults.

We've stayed at the Midway about 15 times in the past 22 years, most recently this October, 2012. Sometimes we've stayed in the larger units, with delighted grandchildren. It's perfectly located on the Cape for visiting sites in either direction, and we get on the bike trail right behind the "back yard". Good seafood and gorgeous beaches are within biking or short driving distance and the Audubon Center is just 10 minutes away. The siting, landscaping and woodsiness create a retreat atmosphere, and the rooms are absolutely immaculate and uncrowded. Sally and the staff are always welcoming and friendly. Lovely place!

We returned to the Midway Motel after a one-year hiatus and found the same wonderful place we had enjoyed in 2010. Nothing had changed (except the sign out front) and that's exactly the way we liked it. We even had our same room-the Captain's Quarters- which was spotless and welcoming as usual. Sally and her staff were friendly and hospitable, and our stay could not have been any more enjoyable than it was. We tried different restaurants based on Sally's recommendations, and they were very pleasing to our tastes. I can't express enough our utmost pleasure at being treated as family rather than simply paying guests. Cape Cod in autumn is delightful, uncrowded, and blessed with clear skies an cool temperatures. The Midway Motel is the BEST place to stay and spend a week enjoying the natural treasures and pleasures of this
special piece of Massachusetts. Reserve early or you'll miss the opportunity to have a most wonderfulvacation on the Cape at the Midway Motel.
