“Cozy and loveable place.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2013 via mobile

If you're staying in Orleans - this is a great place to stay. I was there with two companions and we enjoyed our stay very much. The heated outdoor pool was what completed our great impression of the place. Location: close to JO mama's (a great bagel place), close to Land Ho (family diner/bar) and The Olde Dog Pub (pub/diner). Two great beaches within a 10 minute ride. Rooms were well cleaned and well prepared, the A/C was loud, but not annoying (I for one enjoy when it buzzes me to sleep in an unfamiliar place). All in all, for the price, the accommodations and service this motel surpassed my expectations from previous reviews in tripadvisor. Enjoy your stay!

This is a fifties style motel on the main road. The rooms are old and dark, with small TV and extremely noisy AC. The towels are few, small and worn and the cleanliness is adequate. The "Continental Breakfast" consists of mediocre coffee and packaged pastry. The pool is acceptable. All in all, you get what you pay for, but on the Cape, the offerings are limited.

I stayed here with my granddaughter for a short little vacation. She had never been to the cape so we needed a place where she could see a little bit of all the cape has to offer. It was a nice distance from P-town since that was one of our day trips. The rest of the time we had all of the quaint towns of the cape to venture to. The room was nice with a front and a back door to the pool. The pool area was quiet since it was behind the motel. It had a refrigerator which kept our waters cold. They provided coffee and muffins every morning at the office. The workers were very friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay there again.

My family and I (5 total) stayed just one night, so we did not get to use the pool or become too familiar with the staff. However, from what we did experience, I can say I would stay here again.

The rooms were spotlessly clean. We occupied two rooms, and all of us independently commented on how clean the rooms were. That's a BIG plus on my scale.

The woman at the front desk was quiet but very kind, and quick with directions to a local restaurant. She obviously knows the area. (Nothing more frustrating than having hotel staff know nothing about the surrounding area!) And regarding the surrounding area - this motel is well located if you plan to hit several areas on the Cape. It's a good midpoint such that you aren't much farther than 30 or 45 minutes from just about any beach or town.

The bathroom had plenty of shelf space to handle the toiletries of two or more occupants, but was oddly spare with towel racks. The shower had quite good water pressure, which is always appreciated.

The room lighting is somewhat dim, and you need to keep the curtains open to really have sufficient light. There is a window air conditioner that seems to do the job keeping the room cool. There is a deck out the back of the room, but no chairs or tables to sit and enjoy the quiet away from the road. There are little plastic chairs out the front of the room, and you could transfer those to the back. If we stayed longer, that's probably what I would have done.

The bed was low and a bit stiff. I'm not sure how many nights I could sleep on it before I'd be waking up sore. And probably the biggest complaint was that the pillows were darn flat. Just fluffy enough to still warrant being called a pillow. But only barely. I had to fold one over to get enough support in place. Staying here again, I'd bring my own pillow. Between that and the stiff mattress, like I said, I'm not sure how many nights before the actual sleeping would be a problem.

There is a step up into the rooms, and the height of that step changes depending on which room you're in. If you have any mobility problems (like my mother, who was with us), be sure to request a room with a shallower step. Ours had a deep enough step it was difficult for my mother. On the same note, the room had a tub, so, again, if you have anyone in your party with mobility problems, you might want to specifically request a handicap room. (I assume they have them - we just didn't think to ask for some reason!!)

Overall, the sheer cleanliness of the rooms, the friendly staff, and the location make this a motel to recommend. But for your comfort, I'd suggest bringing your own pillow to ensure a better night's sleep.

Brandon was very friendly and welcoming. The staff was quick to suggest local eateries and other gems of knowledge most visitors are likely unaware of. They had handouts and directions readily available. Definitely will stay there again.

The bathroom floor had a few loose tiles that need to be re-grouted, but no other complaints.

Room Tip: Great location, large clean pool, friendly staff. Lighting needs some updating, but wonderful VALUE.

We stayed in Olde Tavern Motel & Inn in Jul-Aug 2012. What impressed us was the beautiful pool in the back end facing right into the woods. The landscape in pool area was meticulously maintained. It was a refreshing experience dipping in the pool after spending a day at the beach, feeling connected to the tranquil nature.
The amenities in the motel were clean and simple, room size was decent. The staff at the front desk was knowledgeable about the history of the Cape and the motel itself. The reception room was indeed a historical building moved from its original site. The touch of history added to the charm of the Olde Tavern Inn.
A memorable place to stay in Orleans, MA.
