“Nice stay at Ocean Mist!”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

This was our first visit to the Ocean Mist. The room was very nice and clean with very comfortable beds. It was convenient with 2 pools and a private beach which were perfect for our young daughter. It seemed at times they were short staffed as trash bins outside the rooms were overflowing and not emptied even with a call to the front desk. We also had a very sticky sliding door that was not addressed. Overall we were happy with our stay and will return. It is a bit pricey but the location on the beach is great!

The place where the hotel is looks great. The private beach is nice, also the pools and the suites are large. The first night we had the wrong room and we paid the same as the larger we booked, I think it is not right. Staff is pleasant and the rooms are clean but each day it was something missing. We had a good stay.

We stayed for one night at this location. The rooms are all close to the beach most of them with ocean views. The room was clean and updated. The place is overpriced simply because it right at the beach. Although the water is not that great. In my opinion, Cape Cod is an over priced destination. It is worth visiting and seeing but I would not save money all year to go there.
The staff at the location was great, they work very hard and are very helpful.
We used the outdoor and indoor pool and they always brought towels and any thing we need.
I would go back again at the right and lower price rate but I would certainly want to try others in different areas.

I was a little worried after reading some negative reviews here. We stayed for 4 nights with our three kids and really enjoyed our experience. The checkin process was fine, the front desk people the whole time we were there were very nice and helpful. The room was a courtyard loft and very clean and spacious. It did not seem worn or dated at all. Both TV's were flat screens. We definitely used the mini fridge and microwave alot. The "maids" were all young guys from (Turkey?) i think on student/work programs. They were always knocking on the door at about 9:30 ready to clean and service the room. They did a nice job. The indoor pool was a big hit with my kids when they had too much of the sun. The beach was nice too...never enough lounge chairs but what can you do...some people get out there ridiculously early and save them. Overall we had a great time at this property and would definitely come back for a vacation.

Third time at this motel. It is right on the beach so that is great. When checking in had to wait for room to be ready. Was given last room next to street. Long walk to beach etc and I am not a spring chicken. Typically had to drive my car to other end of parking lot to haul my beach chair and umbrella to beach. Could just as well to thene to public beach parking lot to do that. Room was clean and it looked like a handicap room as bathroom was very large. Beds are very comfortable, but the price was reasonable in June... looked at booking again for July or August but price was too high.

Overall an okay place to stay.

Room Tip: Make sure that you ask for a room close to beach if you are not able bodied.

My friend booked this place for a girls weekend because it was right on the beach. All rooms are accessed through the outside, so you do not go through a lobby or hallways to get to your room, you park and then go to your door/room. We got a room with 2 beds for 4 girls. The room wasn't super large, but it was comfortable. There was a small little kitchen area with a refrigerator, microwave and sink when you walk in. A table and two beds with a good size closet. The bedding was nice, the bed was a bit hard though. The bathroom wasn't large, but I thought it was a good size. The sink vanity though was very tall, when you are petite and trying to brush and wash your face on your tippy toes was a bit awkward. But overall it wasn't bad. The room looked pretty clean too. Everything seemed to be updated too. There is no food, restaurant at the hotel.

There is an indoor pool and also an outdoor pool with a hot tub. The pool area was nice and they have towels there. The beach is right there next to the pool and the hotel provides some chairs. Get there early though, because by 10am the chairs are gone. It was nice that the beach was close and convenient. The area goes, private, public, private, public beach. Since there are some other hotels around and beach houses. The beach water was very warm around 74 in August. There were lots of shells on the beach and horseshoe crabs and you can walk in either direction down the beach and walk on the jetties. I didn't have much interaction with the staff, but they didn't seem bad and gave us extra towels when we asked.

There was one restaurant that we went to that we walked to from the Hotels called Skippy's wasn't bad. We sat at the bar, there is an upstairs and downstairs and there is an enclosed deck eating area.

If you want to get breakfast or do anything you will have to drive or get a cab. We went to Hyannis in a cab and including it tip it was $20. I liked the shpping area a lot in Hyannis and wished I had more time there, lots of places to eat there and hang out, drink, shop, etc. Route 28 for Yarmouth had mini golf and some shops too, but it's more of a drive there strip rather than park and walk.

Overall the stay was nice and I liked the area a lot. You are paying for the beach location. I did like the bedding, they had those down like comforters, I cannot stand the old school quilt like comforters so that was nice. The AC is a bit noisy, but it wasn't so awful I couldn't stay there.

Room Tip: The hotel is two floors so if you are worried about heavy walkers or kids banging, you may want to b...

Stayed here first week of August. Pulling up, location looked great. We had a loft suite but it was not ready at the check in time. Only had to wait 20 mins. So not too bad. First issue was garbage in bathroom was not emptied before we checked in. The outdoor pool right at the beach was nice but there were a lot of families, so didn't get to use it. If you want to get the lawn chairs for the beach, be there early. We were able to get 2 chairs at 9am, but by 10ish, all were in use. By end of our stay, we started to notice a few things. Light above kitchen did not work. TV was aggravating to work - TV would turn on but the cable would shut off and vice versa. Our last night there, we got back to our room late so no one was in the office to tell them that we had no toilet paper, and the holder came right off vanity. Also, be prepared to have a hold on your credit card for each night you are there. Waiting to see how long the hold will take to be released. I called the manager, but still waiting for a call back. Everyone seems to be complaining about the cleaning staff. Have to agree, we saw the same hair tie on the same stairs the whole stay. And one more thing, if you are on the 2nd floor, be prepared, there are no elevators. Need to carry luggage up.
