“The Roach Motel”
Reviewed 7 August 2010

I rented this room in desperation, wanting to extend my family vacation just one more day. I should have known better! I read some of the negative reviews, but I also read one or two that said it wasn't so bad. Silly me!!

I am here RIGHT NOW posting this at 4:37 am because I cannot sleep, as I am forced to keep the lights on to keep the cockroaches at bay. Since we arrived at 10:00 pm, I have seen three roaches, and killed 4 other bugs. I would have asked to switch rooms, but my kids were so tired they were falling down asleep!

On the plus side: someone has made an attempt to revamp the bathroom: new sink, hotel rod, modern curtain, new shower surround, cute soap dish. There is a full kitchenette (that u couldn't pay me to prepare food in) with sink, micro, and mini fridge. There is a separate living room section with chair and couch (that I am afraid to sit on: and I'm not a wuss about such things!!!) The mattresses look brand new, and the sheets and towels are spotless and obviously newly laundered and useable (although I could probably file my nails on the towels, as they are quite rough!) Iron, board, kitchen table, 2 chairs, cabinets, small counter: all would be FAB if only I could stomach the idea that I'd be sharing my meals with the roaches!

The negatives: aforementioned unwanted roomates, FOUL stank as I opened the door (my 'nonsmoking' room must have had a past life as a smoking room) sketchiness of the furniture (u wouldn't want grandma or your toddler on this stuff!!) random scary holes in walls (perfect for my buggie friends to flee to when the lights come on) very questionable stapled-up, then painted over extension cord/ cable set-up (wondering how that passes Bourne safety inspection!?!)

Needless to say, I am waiting patiently for the clock to strike an acceptable time for me to wake the family and flee (like a cockroach!) from this roach motel: hey! At least there are four HBO channels for me to entertain myself with!

My major obstacle in planning our trip to Cape Cod was the fact that I wanted a family vacation, including our German Shepherd dog. So in an effort to find a pet-friendly and convenient Cape Cod destination - I found the Knights Inn on the "web". After experiencing the accommodations, and after NOW reading the reviews, I would have looked harder for something else. I thought, afterall, I had a good deal.

The hotel staff was very friendly and allowed us to have a pet-friendly, NON-smoking room (not normal policy for pet rooms).

The room wasn't 100% clean, as the kitchenette area was dirty, there was no running water in the sink and I would never think of using the stove. The remaining parts of the room didn't "weird me out", but it just wasn't a clean feeling type of room. We stayed a week and felt it adequate enough to not check out and find somewhere else to stay.

During the week I noticed many people, not normal tourists, but people just "hanging-out" outside the rooms and in the general hotel area. Not until an individual in the deli across the street told me the hotel was also "Section 8" housing. That explained the unusual feeling I had about the others in the hotel. They did seem more tenant-like.

The best parts about the hotel was its location - being 20 - 30 minutes from all smaller nearby towns for activities and tourist attractions; the IHOP across the rotary and the Tedeski Deli across the street.

It appears that the owners are refurbishing all the rooms, as there was alot of painting and construction activities. Don't know where the progress is going, if conditions will improve, but I really wouldn't recommend this hotel to anyone.

This is easily the worst motel we have ever stayed in. The "non-smoking room" smelled of urine and smoke. The air conditioner did not work (in mid-summer) and the only window that would open was in the bathroom. There was no water for the kitchen sink. The towels were dirty. When we finally arose after a sleepless night our bodies itched from some unknown source, which we suspect was the bed. The mattress was stained.

opening the door to our room my first instinct was to turn around and leave. The room was dirty and there was a spider living in its web in the bathroom. The smell was so bad we had to leave our door open to air it out. Then we decided to turn on the air conditioner thinking it would help with the smell...it didn't work. After several failed attempts to get it working the staff member just went back to his office. I called the office to say we needed another room. Thankfully, we were switched to another room without any trouble since it was too late to find another place to stay. The 2nd room didn't smell as bad and the air conditioner worked which helped some. No alarm clock in the room and the kitchenette floor was so filthy with imbedded dirt that it couldn't even be wiped clean. The Continental breakfast was terrible...served stale doughnuts and we threw them out. Sorry to say, but this hotel needs to be leveled and rebuilt.

My girlfriend and I needed a place to stay overnight so we could catch an early ferry to Martha's Vineyard the next day...the catch; we were dog sitting for my sister for the weekend. After an exhaustive search, we decided to book here at the Knight's in because they were dog friendly and had availability...despite the miserable reviews it received.

The manager on duty, Maya, was quite friendly and offered area maps, a wake up call, and directions to the ferry. The property itself was not impresive, but, it was not a disaster either. The grounds were plain, yet clean.

We stayed in room 119, a king size smoking room in the corner at the far end of the property. The room was acceptable. It is what is is with places like this. It is an "all rooms face out" style motel. In my experience with these, the carpets are almost always dirty because you are entering the room directly from the outside with no interior corridor buffer zone. Anyway, the carpet appeared fairly old, but was not visibly dirty, though that did not stop us from keeping at least a pair of socks on when walking around.

The bed was hard, and I felt the springs in the mattress (note: I am not small. 6'8" 260.) Due to the reviews, we had packed our own bedding and we changed it out upon our arrival. Their bedding was plain and appeared to be clean, but we had our own so we used it.

The bathroom was dated, but it was clean and everything worked. The only really dirty thing in the room was the air conditioner. It was ancient, had not been cleaned recently (dust build up was abundant) and it smelled pretty bad when I turned it on. This may well have been due to the fact that it is a smoking room, but it was still pretty bad.

There is a Tedeschi Food Mart directly across from the hotel that is open til 11. It shares a building with a laundromat and a "bus station." The Inn is directly off of the Bourne traffic circle, and the is an Ihop on the other side if you like pancakes for breakfast. The neighborhood, while busy due to its location right off the circle, appeared to be pretty safe...and the state police barracks are about 200 yards away.

Overall, the room served it's purpose as a stopover point, but I would not advise a lenghty stay here.

After a nice enjoyable ride down to the Cape in a convertible top vehicle, I was ready to rest my weary bones at the Knights Inn. I suppose that the first clue that this place was a godforsaken roach motel dump was the fact that the receptionist greeted us with, "Sorry, for the wait, we have leaky toilet problem to fix."

OK...well, we were in need of a stiff cocktail so we gave it no second thoughts, and regretfully paid our 167.76 (after tax) for our one night stay. I have never regretted spending 167.76 more in my whole life. I mean, I couldn’t even justify spending the money. I would have rather given the 167.76 to the poor homeless person sleeping in the parking lot than to this establishment.

Where to start, the delicious ashtray ead de parfume that lingered in the air or the remnants of the last tenant’s crumbs in the sheets? No, the semen on the television, sheets and mattress takes the cake. I was starting to think that maybe this hotel was the scene of “Debbie Does Bourne” or something, but then I found a curious hot pink cell phone hiding under the bed. No, this was no porn pad (maybe by day) but rather a drug dealer’s cozy hang out. I thought I would do the nice thing and turn it in, but this cell phone served as our entertainment for the whole stay. The cell phone was filled with text messages about scoring “dope” and about how “stoney” the occupants of Room 220 were. Well, at least they had a good time, wish we had been so fortunate that we could have baked ourselves into oblivion to blur the horror of it all. The best part was when I attempted to call down to a family member’s room to see if this had all be a very cruel joke they played on us…no such luck…the telephone didn’t work. Even better, the lamp next to the bed acted like a sporadic clap on lamp on crack…. (it wasn’t a clap on lamp). Even worse, when we called the front desk to see where we could score some Baked Cheetos , the man at the front desk hung up on us…the audacity! After the humor of the hot pink cell phone wore off, we decided to turn on our laptop to connect to the supposed “wireless internet” the hotel boasted and go onto TripAdvisor and see what other people thought. We should have known that a hotel without a coffee maker or a properly functioning commode is not going to have wireless internet. Alas, there was a minifridge in which we housed our bottle of Grey Goose….that was the only thing that made this trip bearable. The BEST part of our stay was checking out and letting my dog urinate on their lawn.

P.S. If you would like your hot pink cell phone back Tyrone, please let me know.

OK... I am not normally the type to write a review on the internet. In fact, this is my first. However, after having my son forward me some of the Trip Advisor reviews of this place I felt the need to add our experience. If only we had read them first!
We were on the Cape for a wedding and this was the only place we could find that did not have a two night minimum stay.... probably because no one in their right mind could stay for two nights. We had three rooms and they were all disgusting. When we first checked in, I told my husband that I was going to have to do a lot of serious partying to be able to sleep in that room. Ugh. When we entered the room we were greeted by an olive green stove that had foil wrapped around all the burners... the knobs were broken and they had been numbered with magic marker. My young adult daughter could not believe her eyes... it was so bad she had a laughing fit (it was laugh or cry). It looked like something you would expect to see on the curb waiting for trash pick up. Wouldn't be surprised if that's where it came from. I had to put a plastic bag down on the couch to be able to sit on it it was so filthy. There were cigarette burns all over everything, including the bedding which was beyond disgusting.. There was what appeared to be blood on the bed spread. The pillows I would not even give to my dog to use. My daughter slept in her clothes on top of the bed... she would not get under the covers....I was unable to make myself walk barefoot on the rug, even to get to the bathroom which was very nasty....The sink cabinet in our bathroom had toothpaste and spit dribbled all down the front of it...Out of the seven of us, only two were brave enough to use the shower... I was afraid of picking up some type of fungus or disease. Then to top it all off, my daughter found a cell phone under her bed... (evidence of the excellent house keeping job)... it turned out to be filled with messages which were making arrangements for drug deals!!!! Seriously!
Like I said, writing this type of thing is not something I ordinarily do. I am not a terribly picky person and understand that you get what you pay for... but in this case... spring for the extra to stay somewhere else.
