“Don't stay here - go to one of the other numerous cape hotels.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2012

I've never lodged a formal complaint on a hotel before, but this was my first. The property is old and pretty run down. Repairs have been very obvious and slap-dash - the caulking in the bathroom was re-applied sloppily over old stuff and is peeling away, the sink had a slow drip leak, the whole place wreaked of disinfectant or air freshener, like they were trying to cover up a bad smell. The doors and walls are thin - I was woken up many times by children screaming at the tiny, outdoor pool.

They did not even have fitted sheets... Housekeeping merely used flat sheets tucked in on all sides, which promptly came up after about 10 minutes of sleeping. I found myself laying on the bare mattress (GROSS) several times in the night.

Worst of all, the water heater in the building must be 75 years old, as it goes ice cold and scalding hots randomly and without warning. It scalded me twice, and I eventually just got out of the shower and rinsed my hair in the sink.

We were charged over $100 for the room - on the back of the door, it says the acceptable range for the room was between $30 and $115. I can't believe we were charged nearly the maximum charge for such a sub-par experience. When he realized that we were staying as a couple, the owner even tried to bargain with my boyfriend (who bought the room) into paying $20 extra for a bed with a King mattress.

There are PLENTY of places to stay on the Cape - don't stay here.

Room Tip: Choose a room in another hotel.

I was disappointed that this property is part of the Super 8 chain. I have stayed in many before (in fact am in another one tonight in Maine, which is fabulous). Our room had a weird odor -- like car freshener or something else they were using to either cover up smoke or mold/musty smell (although it was a non-smoking room). The breakfast was also advertised as Super Start (and was even advertised as that on the map given away by business) yet it was simply 2 choices of cold cereal and prepackaged muffins or rolls -- no variety. We didn't even eat it the next day. Even a toaster with toast or bagels would have been an improvement.
It was also an old property and we heard every single footstep on the floor and walkway above us. The only thing positive I would say that considering you're in the Cape, the $99 per night was reasonable compared to other properties but if I had to do it over again, I would find another property unless you're not doing much more than checking in and sleeping and getting back on your way. All it owuld take is a little TLC to make this more acceptable, like new bedding and carpet cleaning and some paint.

Room Tip: I would not return to this location

The room was OK, some would rate it worse. The tiles in the bathroom were regrouted with calk, just put it over the old. Much too wide. Looked aweful. Lots of little details that needed fixing. Rust on the bathroom heat vent. The "H" and "C" on the facets were missing. The breakfast was two cold cereals, corn flakes and raisin bran. Prepackaged muffens, two flavors, and some other prepackaged roll. It gotold after one day.

Skip Cape Cod all together, Western Mass. is much nicer.

Room Tip: Ask to see the room first.

Read the reviews before booking, so knew this was no 4 star motel. And that is true....a little moldy, a little scruffy and the wifi is not reliable. BUT it is in the perfect location in Hyannis....easy to get to the harbor, to the ferries (important to us) and to the Main St. "strolling" area. Rooms are clean and have any amenties you need for an overnight. Wouldn't want to spend a vacation here, but it is fine as a stopover.

I rate all Motels as 3 Stars; however I would give this establishment a 3.5. The Super8 in Yarmouth, Cape Cod is centrally located in Yarmouth giving the tourist a perfect vantage point in the Mid Cape to see all of the local sights without difficulty. The harbor with the HY-LINE ferry to Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard is within walking distance. The other quaint towns of Hyannis, Dennis, Chatham, etc are easily accessible from here, however a rental car is essential to see all of the sights on the Cape with any efficiency. Take the Ferry to one of the Islands. Dont' miss shopping on the main street in Chatham. Restaurants which we favored were the Yarmouth House, and we suggest Schooners Restaurant in Hyannis for wonderful Greek/Mediterranean cuisine
The Hotel itself is a simple Motel. The staff quite friendly. The breakfast very stereotypical and simple. My wife Linda and I took a room with two queen size beds (we used one queen for ourselves). The room was large and clean.The Wi/Fi worked well. The Motel is not new. Our attitude is that a Hotel is only a place to sleep. If you want to be pampered, get over it! Or stay at an expensive place. This was a nice place to stay.

Room Tip: see above. 1.5 hour drive from Boston

We did not expect much from this hotel as it is only 2 stars accommodation and our expectations have been met. The place is OK. The room had AC, fridge and some other basic things you need to stay over night. The beds were not the greatest in the world, but good enough to sleep through humid Cape Cod night. The owners were very nice, polite and helpful. There is a pool outside of the hotel which we did not use. I would recommend this hotel to those travelers who just want to stay in the area for 1-2 nights. It's not very romantic, but it will just fine if you are going to spend most of your time on the beach or exploring Hyannis and surroundings.

Having stayed here several times , it's like my home on Cape Cod ! The owners are so accomidating , you feel right at home , and will do anything in their power to help you .
I arrived on the weekend before Memorial Day , and it was quite busy , but calling ahead , was given a room I always ask for . [ Great service ]
The rooms here are always spotless , very clean and spacious bathroom , good beds , table and chairs for which to set , desk and chair , large tv with multi channel servive ... and plenty of drawers for cllothes storage , hair dryer , coffee maker , and safe . [ an endless list ! ] Things you'd find at a motel charging "twice " the price ..... this place has always been a "bargin " for the traveler ! They also include a nice continental breakfest to start your day each morning , up at the front office
I stay no where else on my many trips to the Cape , as I feel very at home here , and can always rely on things to be as perfect as I've found them each time I've visited ! Come see for yourself ........

Room Tip: Call the motel itself , and speak with the owners , and recieve their own personal service . Much ni...
