“This place was better than expected.”
Reviewed 31 August 2010

My wife, two kids and I expected a less than satisfactory stay due to the reviews we've seen. We absolutely had an excellent stay. The location, price, pool with hot tub just made it great with the kids. We put a do not disturb sign on our door and house keeping left us a refresher bag of hotel goodies tied to the knob. This place gets a ten!

There are 2 big draws for this hotel. The first one is the private beach right out at the end of the hotel. Very nice. The 2nd is the location. Use 6 to get past Hyannis and shoot down to South Yarmouth. It is easy to avoid major traffic jams on 28 from this location. Also the bike trail is close by. The room was clean, the staff was friendly and you really can't beat the location. Book online for a great deal.
We found a bit of a wet smell; it rained 4 days we were here. NO bed bugs.. repeat the room was cleaned and the staff did a good job. BTW I tip daily (small amt) while I am in a hotel. I always get better service. We did not find elephants upstairs. Yes we could hear them walking around, but it was not excessive. When they go to bed, they go up another flight of stairs anyway. So that makes it even quieter.

We stayed in a loft room, 205. The corridors, pool, hot tub and room were so filthy, we left four days early and stayed in a holiday inn. The carpet around the pool (that's right- there's a CARPET around the pool) was gross with green stains all over it. The hot tub was green with unidentifiable things floating in it. There were no towels. The entire hotel smelled moldy and musty. A spider had created an eggsack in the corridor where the wall and ceiling meet. Our room had two nice sized beds with mattresses that had to be thirty years old- dirty, lumpy, squeeky. The bedspreads were stained polyester that may never have been washed. The kitchenette did not have a stove top nor pots and pans. The couch was so stained and disgusting I would not let my kids sit on it before covering it with one of the extra sheets, let alone sleep on it. The ceiling had patches of mold and was flaking off. The bathroom faucet was missing the screen and splashed all over you when you turn it on. The toilet would not flush and the shower head was so clogged with what I guess is mineral deposits that it barely provided a fine mist.

Listen to me and find a different hotel. The only thing going for this place is that it is RIGHT ON THE BEACH (which is why we chose it) but there are other options that meet minimum standards. The owners should be ashamed of themselves- I doubt very much they would stay in the room we had. We prepaid for the entire week through hotels.com but left after two nights- the manager on duty told us we would be credted for the rest of our stay ($750). We were told again when we checked out that we be would be credited. I called hotels.com the next day to see if they had credited our account. While I was on hold, he had to verify our check-out with the manager/owner had to fight with them to credit us for the stay after we were tld twice by two different managers that we would be credited.

This place may have been a nice place to stay thirty or so years ago, but nothing has been re-invested in it since. This hotel could be a gold mine if they replaced the nasty carpets and furniture and made basic repairs.

This room was a definite value for what we paid for it. It was comfortable and roomy. The location made it perfect for a family with kids who wants to spend time at the ocean. It was clean and spacious, only footsteps from the beach. The kitchen unit was invaluable to us. The cleaning staff was friendly and accommodating. It definitely needs updating in terms of furniture and bedding, however. The pool area also could use refurbishing, but this was not a big deal since we were there for the ocean (literally 15 footsteps from our door!). The front desk staff is not as warm and welcoming as we would have liked, but that was also not a big deal since we had limited interactions. Overall, a good choice for a family.

We added a few days in Cape Cod to a trip to Boston and were glad we did. The Ocean Mist is not fancy but our loft room was clean and comfortable. The location is the real draw with the ocean and the beach at your doorstep. The pictures online don't do justice to the private beach with the only negative being how much seaweed gathers at and near the shore.South Yarmouth is quite touristy but at least the OM is close to all the restaurants and attractions.

We booked on line for two delux rooms with ocean view. This is not true. Any first-floor room except the ones at the far end do not have an ocean view. On our side, at least, the door faced the parking lot and one window in the back faced an 8 foot slid fence. The staff was very nice and helped us book one of the lofts instead, which are 2 floors with 2 balconies which have a side view of the ocean. They have 2 double beds downstairs and a pull-out queen upstairs, 2 TVs, kitchenette, and one small bathroom. The hotel is dated and needs touch up repairs and more. The coffee is terrible. The pool and hot tub were nice but the bath by the pool was in bad shape. There is no fitness center or Internet. The beach area is okay with chairs provided. Hotels.com was also good and credited us for both nights, and the desk person did not charge us a penalty since we did stay there and there were vacancies. As for the area, it is central to many, many mid-Cape restaurants, scenic towns and shops. If you want an ocean view do not book a first floor room.

This was my second time at the Ocean Mist. Both times were perfect! If you book through Expedia or Hotels.com you can get a really good deal. The hotel is located on a private beach and they provide loungers for you. The hotel is very old fashion about the way they do things. Everything is hand written and you will always find the same two older woman working the front desk. Both of them are very nice.

There were a total of 6 of us there for a weekend celebrating a birthday. We brought a grill and cooked out on our balcony, the beach is private so we were free to bring a cooler with some beer and alcohol down to the beach. You are able to use the beach at night and we built a fire out there. Everything was perfect! There is an indoor pool area with a hot tub. The pool is probably one of the cleanest hotel pools I have ever seen!

We stayed in a two story loft and it was worth everything we paid (which wasn’t much split 4 ways). The downstairs is the bedroom/kitchen area and upstairs is a living area with a TV and a couch. There are two balconies; one upstairs and one downstairs. The room was very clean and they have utensils in the kitchen for you to use.

The hotel is located in a great area as well. Only a 5 min drive on a main road will take you to many things such as the cape cod mall, restaurants, mini golf, liquor stores, K mart.

We are looking forward to next summer and are definitely planning on spending a couple weekends here again with some friends.
