“cheap and cheerful”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

Great cheap hotel in a good location. Staff are very friendly, and the hotel is located close to shops and bike path in a quiet location.

Rooms are a little on the smelly side, and a little dated - but you get what you pay for.

Room Tip: Try to get an end room - having side windows makes it airier and brighter..

My wife and I were looking for a pet friendly motel on Cape Cod for the second week of October. The proprietor was wonderful and gave us a great rate. The room was very clean and quaint. The only issue I ran into was that our room was in a dead spot for the wi-fi and the one antenna I could connect to wouldn't connect properly, despite being re-booted, but that's a minor issue. We were impressed with the value and the quality of the place. The staff were friendly and we had a great time with our little dog along. Helen (the proprietor) gave us good advice on places to eat and visit.

Room Tip: If you need wi-fi, avoid room 29, otherwise, it's a wonderful place to stay.

After several mini vacations up the Cape in the fall we have finally found the perfect motel, The Captains Quarters in N.Eastham. Where do I begin? I first have to comment on the front desk manager Helen. We have never met a such a warm sincere motel manager in all our travels. She just about bent over backwards to help us in all our requests. She went above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable from start to finish. We loved you Helen and you can bet as long as Helen is there in the fall of 2013 we will be back. The motel was very clean, comfortable beds, bathrooms spotless. No complaints on cleanliness at all. Fantastic continental breakfast too. So my suggestion for travelers up the Cape is stop in and talk to Helen about the accommodations at Captains Quarters. You wont be sorry! See you next year Helen!!!!! Cindy and Lori

When I booked with Hotwire and got Captain Quarters Motel as a result... I was pretty scare and didn't know what to expect!!! I really don't like motel usually and only book them at last when nothing is available under $100 or so... Motels are usually used for many things (day and night and hourly rates kind of thing).

Well... First I my GPS didn't find the motel so I called many times and only hit a voice mail several times.. Was not a good start!!! I finally found the place and it was like getting in a vacant ghost motel !! Not a soul... The lobby was locked... Nobody around!!! Wow this was scary... I was about to call Hotwire when I saw a sheet on the window saying that the manager was away and my room was unlock, key on the door and I could check in next morning!!!

Wow!!! I was not very feeling safe... What if somebody was already in my room... What if...??? OMG !!!

Well, I knocked at my door... No answer (good) and I was please to see a nice spacious room...

Internet was good and nice desk to work... I was feeling more safe and comfortable...

I took a shower then went a mile south to Stewart for lobster and mudslide... Then back at the hotel to finish my paperwork and daily orders...

I slept well but woke up pretty often...

In the morning I met the manager and she told me she had to take care of her very sick dad... She's alone all season as manager and her boss don't seem to care much and pay her as little as they can...

At least she's doing a great job (when she is there :-)...

Breakfast was very basic : bagel, bread, mini muffins, juice, coffee, cereals...

Interesting experience... But since it was overall affordable and comfortable, may crash here again next year!!!

Only open from April to October ;-)

After leaving a dreadful Boston area hotel early, we decided to check out Cape Cod. We drove onto the Cape with our hotel coupon book clutched in our hand, looking for someplace that looked pleasant and did not want too much for their rooms, as we were only spending one night. After passing several motels offering deals in the coupon book, we came upon Captain's Quarters (almost missed it due to inadequate signage). We found the rooms to be quite pleasant, clean and spacious. The rooms and entire motel are a bit dated, as mentioned by other reviewers, but this was of no concern, as we were only renting a room, not buying the place. Darkness...no concern. Why waste the day in the room, and at night, who cares.From check-in to check-out, the whole experience was a pleassure. Got great restaurant recommendations from the manager, breakfast was more than adequate, beds clean and comfortable..........all for a super low price. A great place if you are not expecting the Ritz.

Love, love, love this place and we'll return again. We couldn't get away for a week, so we bypassed getting a cottage rental and we weren't diasppointed!! I don't know where to begin...Helen was wonderful!! We arrived to Eastham in the mid-morning and she allowed us to come check in very early. When she found out our plans to go to P-town for a whale watch, she made calls to check if they were going out (TS Leslie was roughing up the east coast). She offered to re-book us for another day and made regular checks on which trips were or were not going out. Helen even gave us coupons for the whale watch which were a bigger discount than the company offers.
One morning I asked where we might rent beach chairs, and she offered us some of theirs. Breakfast on site each morning was perfect.
Rooms were spacious and clean. It was nice being able to park right outside our room.
Captains Quarters was convenient to everything! We rented bikes and rode on the CC Rail Trail and the trail is literally outside the back door.
I would highly recommend it!

CLEAN with white bleached sheets!! The a/c-heating unit worked perfectly, the towels smelled fresh, the furniture was in great condition, the mattress was new and everything worked as promised (small fridge, blow dryer, TV). It was all just as the manager said it would be. She was on site first thing in the morning and at night when we returned. The only suggestion I would make to the owners, invest in curb appeal and landscaping.

Room Tip: Are room was right by the office.
