“Great value for clean/quiet experience”
Reviewed September 23, 2012

I have been to Cape Cod a number of times but usually stayed with relatives. That wasn't an option this time because I was also bringing a friend and there was no room. We found this hotel online and it cost us $510 for pretty much a week long stay following Labor Day. Split that in half and you've got a pretty good deal IMO. Free wi-fi so my iPad worked and we could even watch Netflix. Nice hot tub, outdoor and indoor pool, free mini golf. Good perks

Downsides- Not great variety for breakfast. No juice or milk even served. Still, you're walking distance from Dunkin Donuts so no biggie. The Tv is pretty tiny and old school. They could try upgrading to a widescreen set even if it's small. Also, some of the door handles were sort of falling off the door. This was happening to the one in our bathroom and also to the door that leads into the hall where the rooms were on the second floor.

Biggest pro- Really friendly, helpful front desk staff who remember you. I'd say a door handle here and there isn't so bad in the scheme of things. I've seen worse. For the value and location, I'd go again.

I run a golf weekend every year on the Cape for 24 women. We have tried other facilities between Yarmouth and Falmouth but I think we finally found one that we'll stick with! How any places can make 24 women happy and not have ONE complaint!!!! Rooms were clean, the grounds were always being looked after, and the staff could not have been better! They were extremely accommodating to our needs, very professional and courteous to everyone. Karen........you're the best!!! Also, we had 3 great days of golf at the courses we all wanted to play. Thanks Howard for taking care of all the details. We've already booked our trip for next year!

We chose this place because the price was very reasonable, it has an indoor pool and whirlpool. and they offer free WiFi. We were very satisfied with the cleanliness and size of the room and the helpfulness of the staff. The No Smoking rule was obeyed in every part of the building that we went into. The pool was large and warm, and the whirlpool was large and very warm, and neither was overcrowded when we went there. There is a rope across the middle of the pool so kids don't go out too deep, but adults are free to swim in the deep end. The in-room fridge was small but adequate for our needs. They offer free coffee 24 hours a day; it was good and fresh and they provided real half-and-half, not the dreaded powdered creamer as I had feared. Breakfast was just muffins as they told us in advance, but they were fresh and plentiful. They also gave us a coupon for $3. off meals at several nearby restaurants, which was a nice plus. A few small quibbles: Although we heard no noise from the rooms or hallway on our floor, we heard every step the people took in the room above us the first night, not so bad the second night. The Wi-Fi signal didn't reach our room - we were at the opposite end of the property from the office - but it was fine in the breakfast room and pool area, so I just went there to check my email. And they don't recycle paper at all, not even in the office, so I brought our newspapers home to recycle. None of these items was a dealbreaker for us and we would definitely stay there again. One other thing: We were on the 1st floor and we didn't notice an elevator to the 2nd floor, just stairs, so if you have mobility issues you might want to ask if they have an elevator or request a 1st floor room.

Room Tip: Ask for a room close to the office if WiFi is important to you.

The room had a bar fridge, comfortable beds, "green" tv remote, which means no gross germs hiding within, free wifi. The room overall was clean, but is an older motel so its def. not spotless. What made my stay wonderful was the fact that we booked a room with a patio door leading out to grassed area with patio chairs and table and access to the pool. With it being end of summer, this was truly a great addition. Having an outdoor area to sit at was relaxing in the evening. The pool area is large, with loungers all around and patio tables and umbrellas. The pool gets full sun all day and therefore the pool is quite warm. It was end of summer and the pool was still quite warm. I loved the pool area and the fact that the water will be warm for all the summer months. The indoor pool is heated, is large, has lounge chairs and a hot tub. Looking at other hotels in the immediate area, this one would be my vote. We did not go to the beach, so not sure of how close it is. there are a few resturants within walking distance as well.

Room Tip: if in summer/spring pay the little extra for a pooside room if you plan on using the pool or enjoy s...

This was our first trip to Cape Cod so we chose a reasonably priced place to stay. No disappointments here. Our room was super clean (thanks Debbie) and comfortable. They provided free WiFi and parking, 24 hour coffee was available. Although there was no Restaurant onsite, they gave a ticket for discount at participating nearby restaurants. I highly recommend Red Face Jacks which is right next door. We got the tuna melt and club sandwiches as takeout which were very very good.

The grounds look nice although we didn't use any of the amenities, They had 2 pools and I believe a hot tub. There was a little mini-golf course and there were bbq pits available for guests to use. Just a couple of streets down, turn right on Seaview?? One of these roads leads to Seagull Beach. Nice beach and it is wheel chair accessible. We would stay here again in a future trip to the Cape.

Compared to prices of other places in the area, this was great value. Very clean and comfortable. The premises were larger than I thought they were going to be and had two great pools which we ourselves did not use, but their were a lot of young families there who looked like they were having a great time. I would stay here again if I was in the area.

This was our first time to Cape Cod and a friend of mine recommended the Mariner. For the price it was beyond well worth it. The room was spotless. We had a mini fridge and there was a lovely room off the indoor pool that had a spotless microwave, plenty of tables and chairs and coffee all day long. Both pools were spotless and the staff was very friendly. The lobby provided ample brochures of all there is to do at the Cape.

We will be back next year with our granddaughter and family.

Room Tip: I would pay more and be on a the first floor overlooking the pool. You are close to the coffee room...
