“Serves it's purpose, but a little small, a little dirty and you can do better!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2008

This motel served it's intended purpose which was to get away to the Cape for a weekend and be close to sites and the beach which it's boasts on the website and in it's brochure. It is close to the beach, but this is a beach that allows only stickered parking from town residents and the walk is more than 10 mintues since you are carrying your beach chairs and towels. There are much closer lodging on this street filled with inns and hotels and motels. The place is no frills and there is no attendant in the office, your name is simply written on a board and you go to the assigned room. Felt like I was in summer camp. Wally the owner is reachable by phone near the board and is there in the mornings to serve the fresh coffee and blueberry muffins in this area. The rooms were tiny and a dingy, having very stripped down versions of a summer cabin with very hard mattresses and tiny bathrooms with dirty standing showers. The floor was so filthy we had to were our flip flops out of the shower so we didnt stick to the dead mosquitoes. It is on te main route of 28 which is reachable to most Cape spots, but for the money yu are going to spend here, go farther down into Chatham or even Orleans. We saw tons of Motels that were closer to the beach and looked nicer. This place was just okay. Even if you are not going to spend time in the room, you at least want it clean.

We stayed in the 3 rm cabin in front for one night. It was absolutely adorable inside. Was a little nervous from the outside but inside was great. New pergo floors, vaulted ceiling, very clean. I would go back and stay a week in the cabin.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2007

My wife and I have been vacationing on the Cape every summer for the past couple of years. The condo we normally rent was not available and we were simply looking to stay at a place centrally located, with a pool, and great rates. After extensive research online, we came across the Wishing Well Motel. We got a great rate of $105 per night with an additional 10% off with 3 nights or more. We stayed during the July 4th holiday week.

Basically, you get what you pay for. Our room was relatively small with a queen bed, two night stands, A/C, a table with tv, mini fridge, and bathroom (stand up shower only). It appeared to be recently renovated, freshly painted, new tiles in the bathroom and new fixtures - we were pleasantly surprised.

It looked like a typical motel room. Overall, it met our needs. The pool was an added bonus that we were looking for and the owner/manager Wally puts out orange juice, coffee and small muffins every morning outside the office. Don't be surprised that this is an "express motel" where no one greets you. Instead, your name is listed on a whiteboard outside the office listing your room number. You go to the room, retrieve your key and drop it at the office upon check out. Seemed to work fine for us.

Basically, if you're looking for a place to stay with no frills, the Wishing Well Motel will do. (Don't let the "Bed and Breakfast" in the name fool you -- it's barely a continental breakfast).

The owner of the motel Wallace "Wally" Cunningham has managed to create the best motel I have ever stayed at! If you are vacationing on Cape Cod or visiting someone on the Cape and are not going to the beach come here.
