This is a very simple little hotel on the beach with great views. Definitely will recommend to others. We stayed two nights. We didn't eat at the hotel there were just to many places to eat on the cape. Great beach access though.

We stayed 2 nights at this location. The location of our first room was not good, right by the ice machine. After 3-4 hours of listening to people get ice and the ice machine spitting ice every few minutes, I went to the front desk and asked for a quieter room. My request was accommodated and the rest of our... More

We had a room right on the beach and near the outdoor pool. Indoor pool and jacuzzi. Good room, breakfast was a bit regimented to deal with a large group so not a great choice but good enough. We did enjoy our stay.

We certainly thank you and your group for choosing our resort while on Cape Cod. During the fall season we are extremely busy with large groups many of which choose to eat breakfast at the same time. This creates a challenge for the resort to feed up to 200 people between 645am and 730am so groups such as yours can... More
