“Cozy and private!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2013

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights. The owners are very nice. We had ever been in the area before and they directed us to nice places to go. The hotel rooms are small but cozy, the cottages are super private and set in the trees. The pool is clean and we even played a little volleyball after swimming. Very close to a few beaches and nice restaurants with great seafood!

The place is clean and kept up. You may not find a better bargain on the Cape. Not a 5 star resort but if you're looking for a nice clean comfortable room this is the place. The owners are very welcoming. Great people. Great location.

If you are looking for quaint country Cape Cod cottages and motel, then this is the place to be! I loved the colorful quilted bed spreads, beautiful gardens and flowers, and super friendly owners. A lovely old family run place, with comfortable beds and clean sheets and room. Perfectly located, a quiet turn off a centrally located route. We are definitely returning!! Thank you!

Room Tip: We had a corner room in the motel, but any room looked great.

We spent two nights at the Ridgewood Motel & Cottages and found it to be clean and comfortable and friendly. Particularly loved the quilted bed spreads that gave it a very homey feel. Also, nice gardens. Also very affordable.

The pool and woodsy garden areas are nice. Can't say anything about the cottages but the motel rooms are small. (They are putting in new air conditioners, which is a good thing.) Best aspect was the willingness of Mr. Knowles to respond to concerns, move us, even refund deposit if we wanted to leave. We didn't leave and we and our grandchildren enjoyed the pool.

If your needs are simple (clean, comfortable, reasonably priced rooms in a central location) this is your place. The owners will make you feel right at home. I'll probably be returning again this summer for a long weekend or two.

2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 October 2012

The only reason I am writing this review is because I noticed the owner's responded to a previous poor posting. I agree with the negative post. The truth is that it would be worth it to pay a little more for an updated and clean room. The handles were actually broken off of our dresser drawers. The bathroom was dank and disgusting. We had four people in our room but only were given 3 towels each day. The internet didn't work - guess what it is 2012 and people want the internet - invest in a better router! The pool was filthy. the air conditioner didn't work. The refrigerator didn't work. I could go on and on....This ruined our vacation! The only reason that anyone would give this a good rating is because they liked the family. FYI: I overheard the guests on either side of me and they didn't sound too happy.

Come on people - write some honest reviews!!!

Room Tip: Don't do it but if you do and you like internet stay close to the office.

Ridgewood31, Owner at Ridgewood Motel and Cottages, responded to this review, 7 November 2012
Dear guest, We were so shocked at your review that we feel the need to respond to you point by point.
1. Regarding the dresser handles: there is only one room on this property which has dresser with "handles"...it is a new dresser with handles screwed solidly in place.
2. Since our staff thoroughly scrubs all baths clean daily, your comment is unfounded.
3. In terms of being short towels, all you needed to do is ask our staff in the office to provide you with extras and we would have done so at once.
4. Our WiFi works very well 24/7, however its range at present time does not include our last 4 rooms or the cottages. However hot spots include the office and several outdoor locations for comfortable use. We are currently working on expanding the service to all the motel units, but due to the size of our property, cottages will not be included.
5. Regarding the pool: Public /commercial swimming pools located in the town of Orleans are inspected by both the town health department and by the Barnstable county health department. Unannounced inspections are conducted by both. They do not tolerate "filthy" pools, either in terms of water chemistry nor physical appearance. The pool is vacuumed as needed, to remove beach sand brought into pool by guests returning from the beach, and leaves which fall into the pool from nearby trees. Lastly, our family and friends swim in this pool on a daily basis!
6. Both the air conditioner as well as the new refrigerators were in perfect order in all rooms all summer. Neither the office , nor the housekeeping department received notice of a problem from you, which could have been rectified, as we suspect it was a simple matter of plugging them in. We have on hand both new refrigerators as well as a few new AC's, in case any should malfunction.
7. It is unfortunate that your "vacation was ruined", given that every single complaint could have been taken care of easily , simply by speaking to the owners!
8. Our policy has been to provide value for a reasonable price. Our family has owned and operated this business for 32 years, with the honor and privilege of having 70.1% of our guests as either return guests or personal referrals. We are now proudly welcoming the 3rd generations of families. Knowles Family
