“What a find, what a gem”
Reviewed 27 September 2012

I've been traveling to the Cape, specifically the lower Cape, for many years and wish I had discovered the Cape View Motel long ago. This older motel in North Truro sits high up on a hill for a majestic view of the Cape and the rates are affordable for all. The motel is older but has been well taken care of over the years. The rooms are basic, not fancy, and have everything you need for a comfortable stay. And the long time owners and staff are the best! I've paid some outrageous prices to stay in sweet spots in Provincetown but not anymore, not after finding this gem, a fifteen minute drive from the center of Provincetown.

Unassuming from the road, this owner run motel offers a nice outdoor pool, free coffee & doughnuts in the morning, and a spectacular view of the Cape from several of the rooms. Owners are great; welcoming and helpful. Close to amazing beaches and very reasonably priced.

We stayed at the Cape View Motel this past weekend for 3 nights. The view is AMAZING and the outdoor pool is clean. The owners were friendly and helpful when we asked for recommendations of places to eat, etc. Being on the trolley route was a plus for us. Within walking distance to Atlantic Spice Company and the Truro Winery.

Absolutely no frills. Old furniture, frayed towels. They only give you a small, cheap bar of soap in the bathroom. No shampoo or conditioner. We have never stayed at a motel that didn't supply these basic toiletries.

We booked and paid for the least expensive rooms in the unattached building. Maybe the rooms in the main building are nicer?

We have been staying at this motel for over nine years. Clean comfortable rooms near PTown at less than the price of a room in Ptown. Very friendly folk there.Nice Pool. We usually go there about 8 or 9 times a year. The rooms are cleaned every day. We have only had good experiences there and have recommended it to friends and family.

This was our 4th time staying here this year. We have been staying here for 9 yrs and have always found our stay A+. Starting with the Desk. Barry and Suzanne have always been more than friendly and in fact have become friends. The rooms (we stay in the standard section) are clean and comfortable. What more do you need? This is Cape Cod, not New York. Funny how you see others complaining on here about one thing or another. Seems like they are people who have to find something wrong with everything. I am more than glad I'm not on vacation with them. The fact is, the location is great, the view is great, the owners are great, the employees are great and the price is incredible. Drive another mile towards Provincetown and pay $100. to $200. more for close to the same room or save the money and go to a nice restraunt and catch a show in Provincetown. The choice is pretty easy. Another observation, while sitting in the office chatting with morning coffee I always notice people from the years prior. People come back here and I think that is the best compliment.

We have been coming to Cape View for the past 15 years. We plan on staying for a week and if there is room we keep extending our stay. We had such a great stay this summer we our going back this September. The rooms and bathrooms are always very clean. The view is spectacular. I can't imagine staying any other place. Another reason we keep coming back are because of the owners. They make you feel like family. Sue, Barry, Joel and Brandon are the best. Thank you for everything! See you in September.

We had two big rooms with two queen size beds and a kitchenette. The rooms were clean but the bathroom a little small. A lovely view from the balcony. This motel is perfect if you are traveling by car as it is situated outside Provincetown. There is also a pool with a view. Personell kind and very helpful.
