One of our worse stays! Should have known at check in when their credit card system was not working that everything else was probably the same....and it was. It was a hot summer day and when we entered our cottage it was hot and moldy smelling. Duct tape surrounded the edges of the window AC unit. Why we didn't check... More

Nice family owned business with hard working owners and great service. I’ve been coming here for the past three years and I’ve seen the gradual improvements they have made in their motel. The main reason to book here would be location. Cleanliness and friendliness follow. The rooms are decently sized and had big fridge which I love!

I didn't want to spend a ton of money and wanted a nice clean place to stay. This is a not an updated Motel however all the original wood work is a gem. Mr. Bhutt and his wife (whom we never met) run it. He was a very nice sweet man and upon arriving I was super nervous because it... More

We added a few days to our Cape Cod stay last week, and found thIs place on line. What a great find! The motel is clean and quiet (we had the room farthest from the highway)..but no frills, so it is not for the Hyatt Regency set. What this motel IS is centrally located to everything with wonderful places to... More

Although this place is in the area of convenience the rooms are old but have added a lot of new items. It was comfortable and the bathroom was quite homey. I liked the idea of having a full size window that actually opens. It was def. the location that we liked; just across the street from Kevin's seafood (our favorite)... More

I find this place for a reason it's cheap and close to everything. First time in cape cod so I will definitely be back again and recommend to my friends and family. Very friendly staff it's more like family run business. We chose the king size bed room very nice and clean we definitely recommend for couples.

When your hotel check-in experience begins with a list of DO NOTS its generally an indication that its not going to get better. This held true on this visit. In a very busy tourist market such as this, it is amazing that this type of property still exists. It is a 1950's style motor in where you park in front... More

Our room was better than advertised so we were happy with that. It had a vintage feel to it, especially the décor. Reminded me of my childhood days coming to the Cape with my father. The staff was nice and the price was unmatchable. They even let my son stay for a discounted rate because we were honest. I recommend... More
