Cove Motel
Ranked #2 of 8 Hotels in Orleans

Reviewed November 2, 2005

Stayed 2 nights at The Cove in Orleans. After reading the reviews on tripadvisor, I expected a little more. We had a waterfront view with a beatiful view over the cove, but the mattress of our kingbed seemed to be pretty old.

We also found hair in the tub, that were definitely not ours. Other little fluff balls were still there even the next day. So they should really improve concerning the cleanlyness!

A pro is for sure the real nice staff at check-in and the location. You are right in the middle of the Cape and have a pefect base for your trips.

By the way, if you like seafood, you should try Lobster Claw right on route 6A. Great food for reasonable prices!

We stayed at the Cove for the first time Mid August, 2005. After staying at various places on the Cape, Sea Crest in Falmouth, Sheraton in Hyannis, a small family run motel in Dennis...the Cove is the best place we have stayed on the Cape. We stayed in deluxe room with two queen size beds. When we arrived, I was upset because the previous guest was smoking in our no-smoking room. The staff went out of their way to correct the situation. They remove any the linens and replace them, place some sort of air cleaner and bomb our room with some odor remover. They were wonderful. I am a bit of clean freak...I was happy with the cleaning staff. They really do a nice job cleaning the rooms as soon as possible. The pool was small, but it has a nice design to it. It's a square, but the bottom of the pool is shape like a bowl. It was perfect for our kids. We enjoyed the DVD player provided. It's in a great location, walking distance to several restaurants and stores. We are planning on returning next summer. The only thing I would like to see them provide in the future are beach passes to the guest and internet service in the rooms.

The Cove motel in Orleans, MA is a nice place to stay with a very helpful and pleasant staff. It has a great location, close to the Cape's main highway, so no matter where you want to visit on Cape Cod, you can get there pretty quickly. There are many restaurants and shops within walking distance or a short drive away.
The rooms are nice, a bit small, but have microwaves, refrigerators, coffee makers, and DVD players. Our main concern is fact that they call some rooms "waterfront" and charge extra for those rooms. The waterfront rooms are in a separate building the the main motel. If you have the end unit (we did) then, yes, it is a waterfront room with a view of the town cove. If you are in any of the other rooms, your view is of a courtyard and you have to go outside to see the water. Not really worth any extra cost.
If you stay here, and are looking for a good casual restaurant, visit the Yardarm restaurant just down the street. They have great home cooked meals and a super-friendly staff.

I have visited the Cape twice and both times have stayed in Orleans and stayed at The Cove. It is an older motel, but it is very nice. Located on Town Cove, the motel offers free boat rides out to where the cove meets the Atlantic Ocean. I highly recommend taking the boat tour!
Also, a little off subject. There is a wonderful little bakery (not associated with the hotel) just around the corner called The Cottage Street Bakery. I highly recommend it as well!
