Great family get away
The office has a two person minimum for allowed in at a time, and masks must be worn. The room was clean and comfortable, adn accommodating for the entire family. The pool was immaculate and cleaned at the beginning and end of each day. The staff is there when you need them but not intrusive. Other guests were not roudy.

Poor 2.0
"We don't do that"
Beds were horrible. My wife had a terrible time trying to sleep in the bed as she was sinking towards the middle of the bed. Room had a musty smell and didn't feel clean. Requested a late checkout as we were traveling with a fussy toddler and was told "we don't do that" by management. The only thing this motel had going for it was the location. I will never stay here again.

Good 6.0
There was no shampoo, conditioner or body lotion in the room. Only a makeup remover pad. Seems pretty chintzy. The motel did not have coffee makers in the room. Nor did it have coffee available in the office. On the plus side, the room was clean, cheery and beds were comfortable.

Good Time in Cape
We had a very good time on a mid-week multi-day stay. Pool and premises were pristine. Front desk always helpful. Room was all updated with new rugs and updated bathroom. Located right across the street from beach entrance. We would definitely return.

WOULD DEFINENTLY STAY THERE AGAIN .Already looking for next year !

Great location. Pool was nice. The room was ok. Dated. No frills, except nice that there is a refrigerator. Wasn’t totally happy with the cleanliness of the toilet, but otherwise clean. Staff very friendly.

Fair 4.0
Find another place if you can
The Motel is old and overcharges it's guests. It"s lacking basic amenities like (shampoo, conditioner, lotion). No phone in room. Wifi didn't work for me. There was a musty damp smell in room. The old fashioned bed spread. Also once you check out they don't allow you to use anything there even for a few minutes. No pool, no parking. Once you check out that's it. There's no consideration of the fact that you may have arrived late the day before.
