Great value, high quality and very nice hospitality. Kids had a blast in the pool and owners were right on site and able to meet our ever need. Even had a nice continental breakfast in the mornings that was a perfect was to start our day.

Room Tip: Pool was great for kids.

Handkerchief Shoals Motel is one of the cleanest places we have stayed on the Cape. We stayed for 2 nights from July 24th til the 26th. The managers were very friendly and helpful. The room is a good size compared to some other motels on the Cape, although the bathroom is a little small, but overall the place is really a great place to stay. The managers even let our grandkids who live in Harwich come and use the pool with us. Could not have asked for more. With our grandkids living in Harwich we will stay there every time we come to visit.

We chose this Inn because it is dog friendly. There's lots of space outside to play ball with our golden retriever. Our room is spacious and very clean and well kept. Handkerchief Shoals Inn looks like a standard motel, but it's truly a cut above. We are all very satisfied after a lovely visit today to Nantucket.

Located in Harwichport and convenient to Chatham and Orleans this is a no frills but very nice place to stay. The managing couple are pleasant and helpful and the room I stayed in was immaculate.
This was a a return visit and I will go back again the next time I am on Cape.

The owners could not have been more pleasant. The room was spotless and decorated with charm. Location is perfect. Will return for sure. The bed was a little hard for me but something I could overcome for a few days. Great Coffee and continental breakfast considering they do not have a kith hen. Loved the apple muffins. Pool was really nice and very clean.

These owners should put on a clinic on how to run a motel. Friendly and professional - personable, without 'Groundhog Day' in your face B&B style. Nothing new or fancy to be seen (though they did have flatscreens), but immaculately maintained rooms, grounds and pool. Set below the road so no road noise and convienent access to beach (10 min walk without a lot of gear). Location also avoids some of the snarling traffic seen in spots on 28. Nice little picnic area on site and better breakfast than average continental. What more could you want at this price point? Hate to write such a positive review because I hope there's always availability for us, but felt we owed to the owners since TA probably drives some business for them.

It was very clean and the owners were very friendly. We were going to the drive in movie in Wellfleet and they loaned us chairs. It was a great help since there were 4 of us. The location is great as well. It was very close to so many places we wanted to see
