“Great Place!”
Reviewed July 21, 2014

We have been staying at the Windjammer for 14 years and have never had a bad stay. The rooms are clean and Mary Ellen and Vicky treat you like part of the family. The beach is across the street and it is close to many attractions and restaurants. The rates are fair and I would never stay anywhere else at the Cape!

I stayed at the motel for 2 night. I have to say this motel is very clean, owners and guest are very friendly, and it's convenient. It's across the street from the beach and walking distance from most of the attractions on rt 28. What topped it off for me was... The day we checked out they let us park there and go to the beach so we didn't have to pay parking at the beach. That was very nice. Also we were able to use the pool, restrooms and showers until 8pm. We give it 2 thumbs up! Looking forward to next time

This was our first time staying in cape cod and i know we will be returning to the windjammer! I love that its family owned! Our check in was smooth and friendly. Our room had a king bed. We had extra pillows and blankets. Our room was on the first floor. It wasn't noisy at all. You can walk less than 5 minutes to the beach. The hotel pool is wonderful. It has 2 gas grills with tools so you can grill up dinner. We checked out at 11 but they let us stay at the pool till whenever and keep our car parked there when we went to the beach! Bravo Windjammer!!! We will see you soon!

Stayed at the Windjammer overnight. Motel is older but very clean and comfortable. Mary Ellen was more that gracious. Will definitely go back. We were there to attend a wedding. The motel was close to everything we needed to go to. The church was practically around the corner. There is also a public beach across the street and a restaurant right down the road (Skippers).

This was our third trip to the Windjammer. Service and location are always great, everything is clean. Rooms are a bit plain for the price but I guess typical of Cape Cod. A room on the second floor is definitely quieter, than our last stay on the first floor.
The only disappointment was that the quality of the beach. I've always remembered the area to have nice sandy bottoms but this year there was lots of seaweed and vegetation. Don't if the whole area is like this now or not. There never seemed to be that many people in the water

Decent room & prices. Definitely recommend for a family w/children. Has a pool, across the street you can walk to Parker River Beach. If you walk in to the beach its free - the beach is small, but has bathrooms & a playground and snack shack attached. Across the road from that is Skippers Restaurant.. great seafood & has an ice cream shack in the back. The rooms have small fridge w/a sink area as well as AC. The lobby has coffee & microwaves. And the pool area has grills you can use during pool hours. Convenient location, close to beaches, shopping, restaurants, cvs, dunkin donuts..etc.. Parking can be tight if you have an SUV. The beach really doesn't have room for flying a kite and they don't allow fishing - have to go to Bass River beach just down the road, but it's $15/day parking. Tip: All cape cod beaches are free after 3 or 4pm -

Room Tip: rooms 102 & 103 are connecting rooms - at the end - can park right in front - dont have to lug y...

Cleanliness: this motel is immaculate! The property and the pool are well taken care of. The owners and the staff are very friendly and very helpful.

Location: Great! Close to a park, beach and the Skipper restaurant (another review in the making). If you like to walk, I found a nice 2.7 mile route down So. Shore Drive, up Seaview, down Rt 28 (sidewalk) then down Pine Grove.

Why a 3? My husband and I had a room on the first floor. Although we understand why there is a large fence around the pool area, we felt caged in. We also thought the room was very small. This is definitely a "no frills" kind of place. The bed was a little hard and the air conditioning unit sounded like a jet engine in the middle of the night.

Room Tip: Ask for a second floor room.
