Orleans is our favorite Cape Location. For a quick weekend getaway (on a budget) this place can't be beat. Solid, clean, comfortable beds, great location, and even a couple rooms with a small kitchen/fridge for breakfast. Don't come with the highest expectations. This place is just what you need for a no frills, dependable spot to enjoy some time away.

We were guests at a wedding at Wequassett Resort. Stayed at the Cove Motel just down the road. Very enjoyable stay. Very affordable! Clean rooms, beautiful view and close to everything. Highly recommend this motel

I was a guest at a wedding that was at Wequassett CC in Chatham a few miles from The Cove. The bride and groom suggested that their entire wedding party all stay at The Cove because of proximity to the wedding venue. The room was clean and had a few age-related quirks, like no exhaust fan in the bathroom to... More

The is a classic motel that's been kept in good condition. It's right on Pleasant Bay and the motel takes a cocktail cruise out to see the sunset in their pontoon boat. It's a very nice touch. It's in a great location that is close to good restaurants and the rail trail.

If I could give this motel a rating of 3 1/2 star rating I would. By that I mean that it is BETTER than average for this type of Cape Cod accommodation. But it is not a 4 or 5 star spot like The Waquassett or Ocean Edge. We were on the Cape for a wedding and this was one... More

The Cove Motel is located off of Route 28 in Orleans, MA. Although not extravagant, it is clean and well maintained. We chose an upstairs room and had views of the eponymous cove, very pretty. Other guests we met routinely stay at the Cove and had positive things to say about their experiences. Our kids loved the pool, and there... More

I stayed at the Cove last week to attend a friend's wedding at a nearby home. It wasn't the Four Seasons but I didn't expect it to be! I had a small room that wasn't near the street so it was fairly quiet, though I was near stairs and hear people coming and going at times. The room was a... More

My new husband and I enjoyed our honeymoon staying at the Cove. We stayed in room 25 which is the closest to the water and beautiful sunrises. Our room was extremely clean with lots of towels and shower items. We decided to explore and took a walk. This motel has a perfect location within walking distance to many restaurants, shops...

We have stayed at the Cove many times over four decades. In the center of Orleans, a charming town. It continues to be a fine place - clean, friendly and reasonable for Cape Cod in the summer. Good a/c, wifi and parking. Nice outdoor pool. Rooms for 4 are spacious, some with kitchens and water views. Can walk 5 minutes... More

We had the pleasure of staying here this weekend. The Cove is nestled off the main road which makes it feel like a quiet retreat! Everything is so clean and cared for. Bonnie, the manager was very friendly and helpful. There is a fire pit that overlooks the harbor which was just perfect for the end of a long day.... More
