Ridgewood Motel and Cottages
Ranked #4 of 8 Hotels in Orleans
Reviewed June 5, 2012

I would describe this as quaint and charming, although it's just not my type of place to stay. Old bedspreads gross me out, and furniture that looks like it's from an antique store just aren't my thing. For the price and location though, you just can't beat this place.

You can either get a small motel room, or you can get a little bit larger cottage. Our whole wedding party was there, so a few of us had motel rooms and others had the cottages. My friends cottage did not have air conditioning, but our motel room did. So ask ahead if you'll be getting AC in your unit.

The property was well maintained and cared for, and the couple that owns the property were super helpful and very nice (I spoke to the wife on the phone while booking, and the husband while checking in).

Overall, this is a great place to stay on a budget.

Stayed: May 2012, traveled with friends

Best place on Cape Cod for the price and location. We stayed at the motel for a wedding and it was great. Close and convenient for everything. It was: clean, comfortable and reasonable. Everything we would expect was there. Owners live on site to maintain property and handle any problem, if one should come up. They were very friendly and helpful. Shower is small. Overall, would stay again. This was the first time we stayed and that was based on their good reviews. We were not disappointed. Look forward to coming back to the Cape Cod and staying there again.

You get what you pay for: Lousy shower and an old TV. There are better motels in the Orleans area.

We stayed at the cottages in September. It was just what we needed as we were traveling with friends who we staying at a nearby campground. This was a four day hike/bike/canoe trip for us so the location was convenient for all our activities. We were able to cook our breakfast and make lunches for our day trips. For the end of the season, we thought that the cottage was in very good shape with ongoing preparation for the 2012 season. The owner was a very nice gentleman who we enjoyed talking with. You can't beat the price.

The cottages were comfortable and reasonably clean considering it is the end of the summer season. I would guess they will all be scheduled for a DEEP CLEAN in the off season. The grounds could use some clean-up, but then Hurricane Irene had payed a visit to the Cape. We used the cottage for a base of operation for a busy family wedding week. The location was ideal.

Room Tip: No AC or heat in our cottage and be sure to bring your linens if you are driving.

We stayed at the Ridgewood Motel the week of Sept. 11-13th. The motel is a nice small one where the owners live on site. Stan, the owner, was great he was always around and answered any question we had. Since this was our first time visit to the Cape it was nice to have someone give us ideas on what we should see. The grounds are really nice, lots of outdoor areas to sit and relax. The free coffee and pastries were a nice touch. We will be back and would recommend this motel to our friends and family.

During the summer, it is extremely difficult to find an affordable place to stay on Cape Cod that's not so touristy. (If you've ever driven down Route 28 in Yarmouth, you know what I mean.) This past June my friends and I stayed at the Ridgewood Motel & Cottages as a sort of girlfriend retreat and we loved that it was just a few minutes driving distance to the beach and to Orleans center, which is full of restaurants and shopping. It was close to everything, but yet still set back enough that it felt private. There is a pool and picnic tables, cookout area and lawn games (volleyball, anyone?), which came in handy one of the nights that we decided to kick back and relax outside cottage. And, did I mention, it was CLEAN! I would, without hesitation, recommend this place to anyone I know.

Room Tip: You can save on meals out by renting a cottage, which have kitchens.
