“very economical and clean on Cape Cod”
Reviewed 9 July 2012

We stayed three nights in July 2012. Super clean rooms, good linens, excellent AC, nicely maintained grounds. My only complaint is that the pool is surrounded by a chain link fence, but that is probably the legal way to have a pool with no lifeguard in Massachusetts.

PRO:
Great location, near the beach (walking distance) and they're pet friendly.
Place was clean and they have a pool.
Owners are pleasant, approchable and helpful.

CON:
Breakfast are good but for non-vegans. I was only able to enjoy their really good coffee.
Although, pet friendly we are not allowed to leave our pets in room and leave the premises.

Room Tip: Bring a friend to alternate care of pet

This motel was very clean and the owner was very friendly and helpful in answering our questions. It was very reasonably priced and close to alot of attractions on the Cape including the Cape Cod Rail Trail Bike Path. My husband's only complaint was that our window needed room darkening blinds instead of the traditional blinds that were on the window. When the sun came up it was bright in our room which woke him up early every day. (It did not bother me at all).
We definitely would visit again!

We had an extremely bright and cheerful room. The accomodations were very clean and comfortable. We would not hesitate to return at some time this summer season.

Room Tip: Room 26 has an extra window to make the room very bright.

I was looking for a place where I could bring my dog. I was pleasantly surprised. The place was very clean and newly furnished.It was quiet and very comfortable. WWe had a great shower, comfortable ed, and friendly innkeepers.There was a designated place to walk the dog and by following the few simple rules the cleanliness of the place is maintained.We were all very happy there and will definitely go back.
