“Good value - great location”
Reviewed August 23, 2009

We were very happy with our stay here. We came down from Maine for a show at the Melody Tent and decided to stay another night. The hotel is very typical of others that you'll find around New Engalnd that were built in the 60's - cheap and cheerful but nothing fancy. The rooms were clean and the view of the harbor was spectacular. The outdoor pool was nice and the folks at the front desk were pleasant and helpful. About all I can think of to complain about is the YMCA quality towels in the bathroom. Hyannis is a wonderful town to visit. A ten minute walk from the hotel brought us either to the closest beach in one direction or Main Street with it's shops and restaurants in the other. We actually would have stayed longer if our daughter didn't need to get back to work. Highly reccomended for the budget minded traveler who doesn't expect the Ritz at a bargain price.

This hotel looks like it has not been updated since the late '60s. So while the location is great down by the waterfront in Hyannis the rest leaves much to be desired. Security was slightly worrisome as the room just had sliding glass doors, so the sun light in the morning was a little tough. Minimal electrical outlets as well as no internet.

While the room was quite large, the bathroom and towels left much to be desired. The in room amentities such as soap and shampoo were of poor quality (packets of shampoo). You had to sign out a hair dryer with the front desk (and return at check out).

I recently stayed at the Hyannis Holiday Motel in one of their harbor view double rooms. The room was spotless and had a great view. The staff was extremely nice and helpful and it was an all around wonderful experience. My son loved swimming in both pools and this hotel has the BEST location. Everything is within walking distance, including the beaches and mainstreet. We will definitely be back again next year. The only downside is that it does not have a mini-refrigerator in the room, so pack a cooler if you want cold snacks/beverages with you.

When we pulled into the parking lot late on a Friday evening in July I was surprised to find it empty. It is high season in Cape Cod, an empty parking lot can not be a good sign. When we opened the door to our room a horrific musty odor came pouring out. The room was clean but the old awful smell was overwhelming, we went to the store to buy Febreeze the next morning. The beds were very uncomfortable. The continental breakfast consisted of boxes of super market donuts. We didn't complain because you get what you pay for but we will NEVER stay here again. Even the owner was unpleasant - maybe he was upset about all the places that were sold out around him.

The hotel is clean but very dated. Feels like a flashback to the 60s. It is walking distance to most areas of Hyannis. On future trips to Cape Cod I'd stay in another area perhaps Chatham.

We were extremely pleased with the services of the staff at this hotel. The room was very clean and comfortable. The location of our room was facing the harbor. The price was very reasonable. In comparison to the Hyannis Harbor Hotel down the street, the Hyannis Holiday Motel isn't as modern, but is more people-friendly. We have previously stayed at the Harbor Hotel and yes, it is more modern, but the staff is not as welcoming and will not let you previously reserve a room, whereas, the Hyannis Holiday will. At Hyannis Harbor you can reserve a room in advance, but when you arrive, it most likely will not be ready. They may even give you a room that is not as good as what you actually paid for in advance (which is what happened to us). Also, there was no control over the people that stayed at the Harbor Hotel with children. The children would run along the balconies loudly and play until late hours of the night while their parents either stayed in their room or outside at the bar ignoring them. NO RESPECT FOR OTHERS! None of that goes on at the Hyannis Holiday Motel. It was very peaceful, even while there were families with children there. The continental breakfast was fine, the coffee was good. Overall, the service was very good. The difference between the two hotels is Hyannis Holiday is privately owned and run much better and Harbor Hotel is a corporation and doesn't accommodate as well.

We liked this hotel. The location is excellent with large rooms
Our room featured a great view of Cape Cod. We had a harbor view double room which indeed did feature a GREAT harbor view!!
The rooms were clean and the bathroom was basic but clean every day.
The hotel featured great parking close to the room.
The rooms are decorated a bit old fashioned but this adds to the athmosphere.
We would really recommend this motel!!!!! and
