“Avoid the Pelham Court”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2012

Absolutely disgusting! It is evident that there is no pride in this establishment whatsoever. As you walk down the street to the office to check in, you will pass the pool, on the side of a building, partially under a garage/car port, which is full of discarded, broken down furniture. We did not experience the pool as we got a refund and checked out w/in 30 mins of arriving, however, it did not look inviting by any standards. This "discarded furniture" theme continues at the "court", along side the staircase leading to upper level rooms. Inside the room, the Refrigerator was ridden with mildew, hairs in the bath tub, full trash bin complete with moldy food under the sink, pillows yellow-stained with extremely foul odor, mattress/box spring stained. Honestly, it was by far, the absolute worst motel we've ever encountered. The only plus was managements willingness to issue a refund.

The only perk to staying here was the location.The beach and playground were right across the street. However you have to park your car two blocks away. The bed had a huge dip in the middle and the pullout couch was even worse. The cleanliness was a joke! Stains in ceilings and just not very clean. The only way you could tell the maid had been there was the bed was made and clean towels nothing else looked clean.I would not come back here!!!!! I would rather sleep in my car!!''

Right in middle of boardwalk. Right across street from playground and beach. Rooms are a little small but u don't do much in them anyway. Ok heated inground pool. Nice porch to sit on and relax and people watch or have a couple drinks. Def worth it. Right in middle of everything. Family oriented. Great rates.

We had a wonderful ocean view balcony on the third floor allowing us lots of sunshine and a fabulous view. The room was very small but the price was also very low. The toilet paper fixture in the bathroom broke as soon as we first used it, clear off the wall, they were apologetic when I informed the front desk of this, but it was not fixed for the duration of our two day stay. The building definitely needs updating as the carpets in the hallway are quite dated and worn looking. The heated pool was appreciated on a cooler June day, but it is very small and cluttered near the pool area. The view from our room and wonderful location were priceless though, with some updating and general tidying up, the place could be great.

Room Tip: Oceanview balcony is wonderful! The second floor is blocked by the third floor balcony, our room on...

First time we have been to Cape Cod and it was fantastic.The staff at Pelham were very helpful and generally a good feeling in the place. The rooms were a bit dated and rundown. The balcony door was so bad it needed 2 adults to open.None of the blinds worked,windows jammed etc etc but it is a lovely place to stay with nice pool and breakfast.I would probably try somewhere else next time.

Room Tip: Upper floor

We stayed here for the 1st time and it was a pretty good hotel. The rooms are a bit small and outdated but it served the purpose. Loved that it was in the middle of Ocean blvd close to everything and that there were restaurants next door that were great as well. The heated pool was also an added plus my kids enjoyed that. The complimentary breakfast was only coffee, juice danishes and donuts but the danishes were very good and the coffee was also very good. The only downfalls are the parking is 2 blocks down, this sucked because we would keep all the beach stuff in the car and had to walk to go get it and also the rooms being very outdated, the bathroom was a bit scummy.

Stayed there years back...was great place to be at and we decided to go back every year. One year we were very disappointed in the way it was looking so run down and things not working right so we made up our mind to NOT go back. It has been over 5 years and this year I decided to give it another try as some of the reviews were good and when I called I was told things had been redone there and new area out front etc. We got there to Room 28 which is a 2 room apt. and the second we went in it was nasty! Didn't want to disappoint the grandkids and leave so we stayed out of the room as much as we could. I turned air conditioner on and realized it wasn't getting very cool. Checked the filter and it was loaded with dust...I had to scrub and scrub to get most of it off. The slots in front of it were all blocked up with the dust too...had to spend time scraping away to get that off. Mold at the top where air comes out. What a mess! Bathroom shower curtain had mildew spots on the lower part that none of us would take a shower...stains on the ceilings in both of the two rooms...stove had only one burner working! Ants all over the kitchen area and there wasn't food there either. TV on top of the refrigerator!!! Plain nasty. Told the owner about issues and said we should've told him right away but ya know...you go on a vacation and shouldn't have to check everything out and we didn't do that right away...we noticed things as we were in room later in afternoon. He came in with vacuum and was not very pleasant to us as I remembered him in the past being this way. Some machine in hall outside our room was apart...Just a dumpy and nasty place to be. Stay away from this place. To have the owner say that we would be happy with the stay when I told her of issues in past...We were lied to...Playground etc is close by which is great but there are many other places to stay. We were supposed to stay 2 nights but asked for second night money back...that wasn't a problem but there was no way we were staying...
Down by the pool...loads of old crappy junk was around it...who would want to enjoy a nice swim looking at that!
Lucky thing my grandkids didn't have trouble with their asthma with the ac being soooo nasty.
All I can say is none of this is being exaggerated!
