“Great Value on the Cape”
Reviewed 22 September 2012

Just returned from four days at Blue Rock Golf Resort. We selected it for its central location to all the places we wanted to see...and each day drove to another place...getting a good sampling of all things "Cape Cod".
We had viewed the photos and were not expecting a luxury hotel. We were not disappointed because it was just as photographed...clean, a little dated...and staffed by great people.

Staff was incredibly helpful at check in or whenever we needed help.
One morning we saw the manager chasing an errant beach ball for a lady as it blew across the green front lawn...his coat tails flying out behind him as he ran. Nice gesture...

Room was immaculate...with loads of fresh towels every day.

Food is basic: "I'm a golfer"...no yogurt or granola...but then again...they cater to Golfers .
Service was attentive...and then did have fresh fruit and fixed my eggs just the way I like them.
Of the Restaurants they recommended...Captain Parkers...was so good we went there twice. Be sure to try the Award Winning Clam Chowder.

You do not have to play golf to stay here...just come for the lovely greenery, flowers, great location ....and the best value...$150 per night on Expedia.

Room Tip: After reading comments from on Trip Advisor, we asked at check-in for an updated room...upstairs...a...

Hello SummerwindNC

The staffs enjoyed reading your review and appreciate the great write up. With many guests visiting it's great to hear back on what they enjoyed and impressed them. I'm glad to see that you where able to enjoy the Cape and was able to get out and sight see. Capt. Parkers is a favorite to all of us. The Chef and restaurant team where happy to hear you enjoyed your meals with us. We hope that you visit the Cape again next season and hopefully choose us as your hotel.

I stayed here for two nights and it was a big disappointment. I thought as a sister resort of the Red Jacket properties it would be nice, but the property is outdated and needs some help! I must note, however, that the customer service here is great. I was able to check in early and even got my room changed with no hesitation from the staff (I was assigned the infamous poop room [see a traveler's review from July 2012] and didn't want to take any chances).

So, I got a "renovated" room by the pool but it didn't look that updated to me. The wallpaper was peeling, the screen to the patio door was ripped, and the curtains were dirty from squished bugs. The entire room was infested with carpet beetles. Squished bugs could be seen on the walls and ceiling. Not sure why the cleaning people didn't bother to do a better job of cleaning this.

The property where the hotel itself is is beautiful but it is removed from nearby restaurants/shopping. Not a huge deal if you don't mind the drive, but still, it's a drive. The best advantage is you have free access to the sister resorts, so we did spend some time at the private beaches which was nice.

I would have given this hotel an "average" rating but the beetle infestation really got to me. Get an exterminator!!!

Hello voxine

We at Blue Rock apologize that you did not enjoy your stay here with us. I am a little taken back on your review of our newly renovated rooms as we have received such positive feedback. For the bugs, here on the Cape is a constant battle. Having screen doors going out to patio's and exterior entrances do give us a tough time. I thank you for your positive remarks about our team and have passed them along. I hope you visit the Cape again and give us another chance. If you ever have any issues please let us know during your stay as we are better able to rectify your negative situation.

Thanks Team Blue Rock

Stayed 5 nights in mid-August. Rate exceeded $200 on weekend. Room smelled like mildew, probably due to no exhaust fan in bathroom. Room hasn't been updated since 80's - single, formica sink in bathroom, dirty carpet, dirty bathroom, and thick dust on many surfaces. Doubt rooms are ever given a deep cleaning. Sheets and towels o.k. but did not replenish toiletries until 4th day including the soap bars! Old t.v., no in-room movies. Restaurant had limited menu but food good and service very good. No dinner and no room service. Atmosphere also shabby. I agree with earlier review that this isn't a resort - it is a par 3 golf course with a very dated motel. Use of sister property beaches inconvenient. Office staff very nice and helpful. Grounds beautifully maintained.

Hello susanburner

We are sorry to see that your stay with us was not up to par. I read that your room cleanliness was below expectations and wish you had notified us during your stay as we could of rectified the situation. I also saw that you where able to take advantage of our oceanfront properties but found the 3 mile commute a little too much. We have been currently updating our guest rooms and have not completed the project as of yet. I do thank you for your kind words about our office staff and will pass your review on.

Thanks Blue Rock

I wasn't expecting this would be this nice. The rooms are clean, a little older but still nice! We don't golf but the location was nice because it was peaceful and serene. There were plenty activities at this resort alone. They had tennis courts with rackets, outdoor pool, and more included. The staff is very helpful and friendly and you can get breakfast or lunch right there.
With the other red rock resorts, we went down to use their beaches and staff set us up umbrellas and chairs for free. Very nice

This was my family's first trip to Cape Cod and we loved it in fact we are planning to go again next year. The accommodations were terrific and the greatest thing was that you can enjoy all the amenities of the red jacket resorts on the beach which were a quick drive away. The employees (front desk, property manager, waiter, etc.) were very friendly and always helpful with any of our family's needs they go above and beyond.

The resort aka old motel is located in an old secluded neighborhood away from any restaurants. The rooms are small with very old beds. The bed was very bad on our backs. The stay and play package is not a value either as the golf course next door is not great either. There is one ice machine located outside of the office. Would not stay here again.

Hello Richard S

Thank you for taking the time in reviewing our property. I apologize that you did not enjoy your stay with us and do wish you had let us know as we could have changed your room. Our property is nestled in a residential area right on our golf course and is quit. We don't have any restaurants in walking distance but there are many choices right down the road with in 1 and a half miles. As far as our golf course, it is a par 3 but was nominated as one of the best par 3's in the world by Golf Magazine in 2011. If more activity and restaurants within walking distance please try one of our 3 Red Jacket ocean front properties on your next visit to the Cape.

Thanks from the team at Blue Rock

My wife and I have been going to Blue Rock on a Golf package for about 20 years. We have continually found our room clean ,the golf course in great shape and the staff fabulous. Jessica and Cathy at the front desk go out of their way to make us happy as well as Kevin at the bar. Looking forward to returning after Labor Day.

Room Tip: We like the jacuzzi rooms or the new rooms
