When we came there, room smelled a bit as some other guests have reported, which made us feel bit uncomfortable. After one night, smell was gone thanks to moisture remover, that was placed to our room without us even complaining about the issue. Staff was very helpful and we found the location very nice. Room was bit worn and breakfast consisted only of muffins.

Clean, comfortable with friendly hosts. I loved the quiet location and the service. Though I stayed only for a day, I will definitely go back for a longer time.

Thanks to Jeff & Becky for the great muffins!!

This is a great centrally located motel with nice, clean rooms. My husband enjoyed the High Definition TV in our queen size room. to watch the Patriots. The property is nicely landscaped with a pretty gazebo where you can sit out and read or eat your meals. The family that runs it - are friendly and extremely helpful with directions and recommendations (from dining to places to visit). In addition, we felt that it is reasonably priced for such a great location.

Pool looked clean and private however, we did not use it due to cooler weather.

The only drawback is that the streets east of the motel along Route 6A do not have streetlights.

We had a wonderful 2 day stay in a wonderful area. The room was nice, clean, and fit the area well with it's quaint decor. It wasn't the typical commercial motel, but a nice quietly located, friendly, family operated property. The staff (family) were very nice and friendly. The location suited us fine as it was central to destinations we wanted to visit and we had a nice quiet place to come back to without much travel. We'd definitely recommend this to anyone.

The motel sounded so wonderful online. However, when we arrived, it was okay to mediocre. The room we stayed in had knotty pine paneling, which was ok, but the unit hadn't been really updated since it was built (c. 1950's or earlier?). Something strange: our queen bed had flannel sheets (and they were knubby) in August on Cape Cod! Not very appealing, nor comfortable, and certainly too warm for the weather.

The biggest problem we had: the only clothes closet had a terrible musty odor. When I happened to mention it upon checking out the next day, the owner (presumably) said "oh, that's to be expected in closets that stay closed up." In all our years of traveling, we've never had a closet smell that bad. Most of them are closed up if they have a hinged door! We obviously could not use the closet to hang up any clothes. Not good.

The units need work. It appears the owners are trying to make as much money as possible (who could blame them?) without investing any new money on the inside. Too bad- it's a great location in a great little town on the cape.

There are humidity problems we all fight here on Cape Cod. This is especially true when temperatures are not warm enough for a/c and not cool enough for the heater but perfect for windows to be open 24 hours a day, the sea breeze is great but very humid.
The "flannel sheets" were actually a cotton jersey sheet sets we thought we would try and will not use again, they took too long to dry anyway.
This room in the review ( and all the other rooms) has had new carpet, air conditioner/heater, and a mattress set within the last two years. Besides a new tv next year nothing else is planned as we love the "olde cape cod" style of our queen size rooms.

This has to be the quietest place I have ever stayed. My friend and I stayed over the Labor Day weekend, the motel was fully booked, but you didn't here anyone!! People were at the pool and sitting on the grounds, chatting and reading. This is a GREAT place to stay if you want total relaxation in a wonderful area. The owners are great, their kids even pitched in with the chores, plus they were polite and nice kids.

There is nothing fancy about this place. If you are looking for an old-fashioned Cape motel that is clean, comfortable and quiet, this is a wonderful place to stay. Plus the pool is large enough to swim laps which was a total plus for me.

I, personally, would rather stay at a motel like this, than a glitzy, noisey hotel, but If you want a ton of amenities, than I would not recommend Country Acres.

The motel was the perfect spot to take a break from the rushing around from our vaction. The rooms were spotless and a nice size and very affordable prices . The staff were friendly and informative. They gave us a map of the area of the places to see and places to eat. The grounds including the pool were clean and spacious. We would definitely go back again.
