“Amazing service!”
Reviewed February 21, 2009

We had a most hilarious and enjoyable experience at the Olde Tavern. Stumbling upon it on Valentine's Day, we could not have found a better deal and had better service from Brandon, the owner. He was so committed to us having an enjoyable visit that it almost seemed that he would have done anything at anytime for us! The dinner he recommended was excellent, and the breakfast the next day at another recommended restaurant couldn't have been better. We had a great time, and would definitely go back when the weather is warmer. Overall an excellent deal for a one night stay!

Although our stay was off season, we were delighted to experience the enthusiasm and helpfulness of Brandon! He could not have been more welcoming, and was "at the ready" to fulfill any request we had. When we asked for ice, he even ran out to the nearest Cumberland Farms and bought us a bag (remember, it was off season, so the icemaker was not in operation). Not only did Brandon come back with a bag of ice---he even offered us a choice of two bags of assorted nuts! What a surprise!
Clean, modest...and affordable! We'll be back! Thanks Brandon

Our stay at the Olde Tavern Motel and Inn was perfect. Brandon, the owner, was ridiculously friendly and more than willing to accomodate any request. My husband and I try to make the trip down the Cape every winter - its our favorite time to go - no traffic, no crowds, no beach permits needed... This was our first time staying at the Olde Tavern and our first time in Orleans, in general, and we will definitely be back. The price was SO reasonable, but the room was neat, clean and big. We took Brandon's recommendations for breakfast and dinner, and we were definitely NOT steered in the wrong direction. I can't say enough about how great our stay was...I think we may have just started a new tradition!

It isn't new, it isn't glitzy, it isn't chic. If you're looking for that then vacation in Boston. But if you're looking for a place that's ideally located, spotlessly clean, and down-home comfortable then the Olde Tavern is for you. Ideally located on the elbow of Cape Cod, this family-run motel has been in business for over 25 years and has a loyal repeat customer base. It's not hard to see why. The entire staff is unwaveringly friendly and helpful, and obviously pride themselves on attention to detail. The rooms are a good size and have all the amenities you need (with the possible exception of a microwave oven, although there is one available in the office). The large outdoor pool sparkles and the grounds are very well kept. I travel for a living and have stayed in hundred of hotels. None have ever made me feel as welcome as the Olde Tavern. My wife and I will certainly be back, and we urge you to stay here on your next visit to the Cape. Come be part of the family!

The Old Tavern Motel wins, hands down, for outstanding customer service. There is nothing you can ask that they won't try to fulfill. Friendly, clean, perfectly located between bayside and ocean side beaches. I've been coming to the Cape for years, and the service here is just as good as it is at the Ritz Carlton.

We stayed at this motel for two nights and we will return. The room was very clean, and the owners and employees were friendly and helpful. The pool out back is clean and heated, and is surrounded by lovely plantings. The rooms have a shared deck out back that is great to dry your beach towels and suits on. The location is very handy; you can walk to various shops and restaurants. The Lobster Pound is next door; they have an early bird special before 5.30 that includes free chowder, beverage, and dessert with a dinner. Nauset beach is a 5 minute drive away. Overall this is a great place at a reasonable price!

The Olde Tavern is well located, in the small town of Orleans.

The building is nothing special, just a typical motel. However everything is very clean and well maintained. The beds were quite comfortable. The owners are very friendly and gave us some great recommendations.

They have a nice pool in the back and the property is set quite far back off the road.

You can walk to stores and restaurants.

Not much of a breakfast...just some muffins and coffee. It would be great if they beefed up the offerings a bit.

Overall, this is a solid value on the Cape.
