Cove Motel
Ranked #2 of 8 Hotels in Orleans
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 25 September 2013

My sister and I stayed here recently for a long weekend with my daughter. Having been coming to the Cape for years, we already knew that Orleans would be a great "base" from which we could start out each day. My family has always rented a house or stayed in the family home so choosing a hotel was a little daunting at first. I decided to book the Cove because I'd driven by it many times and it always looked clean and pretty. We were not disappointed! The motel is not modern, but it is very clean and has nice touches like the water view with Adirondack chairs and fire pit for relaxing. I also appreciated the fact that they were very welcoming to my (very well behaved) two year old daughter. They couldn't be nicer at the desk and the cleaning person even arranged my daughter's stuffed animals in cute ways by the time we returned each night. I think the overall decor could be updated, especially the bathrooms and the carpet, but there really is nothing to complain about. I wouldn't mind a newer air conditioner, perhaps. Ours worked to cool the room, but didn't remove much humidity, which is a common concern on the Cape. Overall, it was a very nice place to stay with all the amenities we could want - mini fridge, microwave, pool, flat screen TV with DVD player, etc. Plus the location is very central to all the thing we like to see/do. We will definitely return!

We were lucky to find the Cove at the end of a tiring day. Our room was large, had a frig and microwave, and a very nice water view. Rooms were clean and personnel were friendly. It was also within walking distance of restaurants and some shops.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a water view--it's only $10 more.

The cove is situated on the water and there is a pleasant area with a gazebo to sit and soak up the view. Our room had a microwave and fridge. Instead of using the disposable cups provided in the room we purchased ceramic mugs for making oatmeal, coffee, and tea. The main draw back was the vigorous air conditioner.

Booking ahead for a summer affair on the Cape was important, indeed.
All personal from reservations to checking out were courteous and professional.Helpful!
Friendly.not modern, but a nice "homey fee"l, Comforable. Clean. Very good housekeeping.
*One in our party had mistakenly left a jewelry item behind. I called The Cove when it was discovered missing a day after checking out, and they had kept it safely - awaiting our call. They mailed it directly to (the family relative) as soon we confirmed the item. Honesty is an uncommon trait these days, but not here.
Pool area. The Cove is conveniently located to good food spots and shopping.Avg Pricing.

Room Tip: Book very early in summer season. Only 2 levels - 2 bldgs.

Great Location in Orleans. We rented two rooms for 3 adults and three teenagers.Nice rooms...housekeeping was adequate...good bang for your buck...I have stayed here several times now...would come back. Some rooms have a beautiful view of the cove and the pool was clean each day we swam there. The employees at the front desk were very helpful with suggestions for local restaurants and attractions to see and do. Bed was comfortable and there was a flat screen TV and refrigerator provided. There is also access to an ice machine if you want to pack items in a cooler to go the the beaches nearby.

My wife and I visited this Cape Cod Hotel and we enjoyed our stay, We had a King Room with a shared porch and a wonderful serene view of the Orleans Cove. With a mini-fridge and a 40 inch flat screen TV, we found the bed very comfortable. Room 23 was very clean and updated. The bathroom had a wonderful shower and the towels were first class. The toilet and vanity were new
as was the furniture in the bedroom. You can park 30 steps from your room and be in the middle of nature's paradise without seeing the parking lot. We went to the Beacon Restaurant the first
night and had wonderful seafood dinners. It was so good we returned the next night.

Room Tip: room 23-24-25

My husband and I stayed at this hotel one night after a one night stay in Falmouth. It is located in Orleans, the lower part of the cape. Orleans is a favorite of mine. There is so...much to do and see in this part of the cape (see various forums for activities and beach options). This motel's is located on a beautiful lake, grounds are gorgeous. We booked a king room however we were pleasantly surprised when we were offered and given an upgraded to a corner room with a small kitchen, living room and separate large king bedroom with older but lovely bathroom. They have an outdoor pool in a nice area, although we did not use it as it was not warm enough. The staff, especially Bonnie, was professional and so very helpful. The motel is very reasonably priced and we will definitely be returning to this motel and highly recommend it.
