“Great Stay for family”
Reviewed August 13, 2012

We recently returned from our first trip to the Cape with our 15 month old! SKaket Motel was a wonderful place and in a great location. The room was clean and the people were very kind. I needed a microwave to warm my baby's milk and it was in the room for us.We never made it to the continental breakfast but the muffins smelled delicious! About the area: we ate breakfast across the street at a restaurant which was great. There is a Shaws grocery store right across the street. We went to Skaket beach which was a 2 mile ride from motel. It is PERFECT for little ones.. Its on the bay side so baby could sit in water ( warm like the bath) and played all day. HINT- we didnt pay the $15 a day at the beach- we found an open grass area a short walk before the beach and noticed people parking walking in so we did the same to save. The motel is located on a route 6 which is a main road that has all little local attracitons close by. We went to Chatham center one night ( 25 min drive) Provincetown another night ( 30 min) and Hyannis another night ( 20 min) all great family places for shopping and dinner. Hope this revoew helps you plan a great vacation like the one we had in the cape! Cant wait to go again!

Immaculately clean and quiet considering its location along busy Route 6A, but hardly attractive. Zero "Cape Cod" charm unless by Cape Cod charm you are remembering damp, dark motels from the 1950s. It's all but one notch up from knotty pine paneling, and even if the appliances in the kitchenette weren't avocado green, one felt as if they were; it's that kind of place. We had a suite. OK there. The a/c did not work well in the bedroom. It cycled on and off noisily all night long, blowing tepid air on a blistering hot night. The bed and linens were adequate, not great. A bit scratchy. The comforter was of a shiny, hard material and uncomfortable to touch. The bathroom was fine, though without a/c; at least it had a window.

Would not stay here again unless I absolutely had to. It's not so bad, it's just for the $$$$ it's a ripoff. Unfortunately the Brewster-Orleans area has few other motel options, and they can get away with providing this kind of place. It's a seller's market.

We are sorry your stay with us was unsatisfactory. Our rooms have all been renovated within the last 3 years and many of our longtime guests have commented favorably in regard to our new decor. The A/C units are new and digitally controlled, if you had informed us of any malfunction we would have adressed any control problem.The suite which you indicated you occupied ( 2 or 3 rooms) accomodates up to 10 people and therefore we feel it is a great value for the price.

The owners are very accommodating in their approach towards guests. The rooms are nice and clean, especially the bathrooms which are all updated and bright. I enjoyed the terrace off of my room which made the space seem larger. Beds were comfortable and air conditioning worked very well (we had several 90 degree days during our stay).

The morning muffins and cereal were just what we needed to get started each day. We took advantage of the really nice pool as well.

The location is great...near route 6 and 6A. Also across from a bookstore, restaurant, liquor store and supermarket...not to mention a short walk to The Sparrows! Perfect location for mid-island activities.

Room Tip: two levels to the Motel...We chose upper deck to avoid people walking on our heads.

Very pleased with our stay here. The motel is easy to get to (right off the highway) and well-located – only a few miles to Nauset and Skaket Beaches. I'd also recommend going to the Cape Cod National Seashore, especially Coast Guard Beach. We stayed in a standard room with a queen bed, but there was a "bonus" twin bed in there as well. The room was super-clean (I have high standards!) and very comfortable – plenty of towels, and the bedding was new. The owners, Hemant and Daxa Patel, are very nice. Daxa continues the tradition of making homemade muffins, cereal, and coffee available to guests in the mornings from 8-10 am. The lobby is small but pleasant and has plenty of maps and brochures that are helpful & informative. The grounds are quite nice, and hydrangeas and roses were blooming when we were there in late June. Shaw's and CVS are right across the street, and several restaurants are in walking distance – Hearth 'n Kettle (great breakfast), Abba's, and Old Jailhouse Tavern. So many stores and other restaurants are a quick drive up Route 6A, so it couldn't be easier to navigate the area. A bit of feedback about two minor things – the walls are very thin, and we could hear the family talking loudly next to us. Once we turned on the AC, it was fine. Also, the tv was oddly located – usually it is set opposite the bed, but in our room it was against a wall. However, there was a small seating area (two chairs and a table) which faced the tv. Overall, a great experience - we will definitely return!

I am an perennial visitor to this hotel. The rooms are quite large and comfortable. The location is perfect for visiting Skaket Beach, Nauset beach, the national seashore, as well as the the flats. Hyannis and P-Town are both short drives. There are restaurants and shops in walking distance. Orleans Center is about a 15 minute walk. The reception is always friendly and helpful. I prefer to eat breakfast out, but people seem to enjoy it. One word of caution: the cleaning staff were not at its best as of June 2012. I am sure a word with reception would help with any problems. Otherwise, I would highly recommend this hotel.

First time stay in a great location. Convenient to ocean beaches and bay beaches. Great location for Cape Cod League Baseball and great eating. Convenient to major cape attractions and easy to get to entire Cape. Great muffins every morning are a great way to start your day.
