“Clean, but outdated”
Reviewed 13 August 2013

Spent 3 nights here. The pluses are: clean well- kept rooms, good price, great location- near the National Seashore beaches which we love, adjacent to the Cape Cod Rail Trail which is great for biking and walking; the king size bed was comfortable, and very nice staff- helpful and friendly. Without hesitation they let us have a late departure- allowing us to have a few more hours at the beach before leaving. We did not spend sufficient time there to use the pool.
Minuses: although the rooms are large- they are very outdated and somewhat depressing. The linoleum in the bathroom is the same pattern that was in my mother's house 30 years ago. There are a lot of rooms, so updating would be expensive- but tiling the bathroom, replacing the carpeting, upgrading the bedding ( old bedspread), upgrading the lighting, replacing the analog TV with a flat screen would go a long way.
It was nice that they included breakfast- it was only bread, bagels, packaged muffins, apples and cereal, but sufficient to start the day.

Called the day of our stay (Friday) and they could accommodate us for one night. Place was:
- Clean
- Spacious (two full beds, with sitting area (chair) and desk/chair area.
- In room mini refrigerator
- Relatively inexpensive for The Cape. With a AAA discount, is was $150 (with tax) on a w/e during prime season.
- Had a Continental breakfast. (Did not use)
- Easy to find (Right on US Rt 6)
- Free wifi
- Pretty quiet

Has a pool, but we didn't use.

Would recommend for simple clean accommodations for small families or couple.

Room Tip: For more quietness, ask for a room towards the back of the motel (higher numbered room). However, o...

We were looking for an inexpensive, clean, quiet place to stay in Eastham during the high season which is nearly impossible to find. At the Captain's Quarters, we couldn't have asked for better. This motel is definitely no frills but our room was very clean, comfortable, had NO bad smells (old, chemically, moldy, rotten, etc.), was quite big with a small bathroom, and had a comfortable bed. The owners were very kind and easily accommodated our late arrival. The price was unbeatably low and there was a simple continental breakfast served in a pleasant room in the main building. We definitely have a new favorite place to stay on the Cape.

Room Tip: Call the hotel directly for best rates.

The Cape in late June is expensive. We were surprised to find a room so reasonably priced. Captains Quarters is not on the beach but right by the Cape Cod bike trail. The staff is friendly, the rooms are clean and safe. Our room was spacious and had a sofa and desk. We were pleased to find the mini-fridge in the room to store some cold drinks. Our wi-fi signal was strong but our room was very near the office so I can't speak for all the rooms. As mentioned breakfast was included. The standard bagel, toast, pastry, and cereal was definitely enough to get you going. There are plenty of restaurants nearby if you wanted something more filling.
Captains Quarters is a great place to stay if you are touring the Outer Cape but don't want to spend the money for a resort experience. Bring your bike and hop on the rail trail and go sightseeing.

This older motel is kept up pretty well. The rooms feature two queen beds, a desk with executive chair, desk, easy chair, TV, and a mini fridge. The rooms were clean and quiet. The only complaint was low water pressure in our room.
There was a guest computer at the office.
This is one of the few motels on Cape Cod to offer breakfast. Here it’s continental with cereal, bagels, mini muffins, toast, juice, and coffee. The sizable breakfast room was bright and sunny.
There was also a pool that looked clean and well maintained. We also noticed an area for BBQ and picnic. There appeared to be a volleyball court out back.
The manager was very nice.
The best aspects are price and location on the Lower Cape with proximity to the Outer Cape and Cape Cod National Seashore. It’s away from the overdeveloped, congested areas of the Mid Cape and Upper Cape. It’s a relaxing place to be.
There are plenty of great restaurants nearby.
We would stay here again.

Basic clean room with two queen beds; bathroom/shower. The bed was comfortable, plenty of pillows and blankets. TV worked well, small fridge in underneath cabinet. Has wifi but it wasn't consistent for connection. Breakfast consists of juice/coffee, bagels, toast and cereal. Pool is clean and maintained daily. Close to good restaurants and beaches on the ocean and the bay. Near the National Seashore.
