“it's a nice place”
Reviewed 7 August 2011

We arrived by chance in this town. We decided to take a room there. We were well received by the owner. After visiting the room, we decided to book for one night. The place is very clean, good smell emanates from the room. After the first night, we decided to take another 2 nights at this motel because the place we really like.

Very good service, the maids are smiling and hardworking. Every day, my room was clean.

The only drawback, no continental breakfast in the morning and coffee is not served before 8:00. But Dunkin Donuts is not far to get up early like us.
I am surprised to read the various comments because we loved the place.
I would like to return next year if I persuaded my boyfriend ...

The motel is well located to beaches, shops, restaurants.

The perception of each is different and so are our criteria. Me, I liked the place and I know that I would recommend it to friends.

My girl friend and I decided to stay here while her family reunion was going on in town. Seemed pretty good. Five minute ride to her aunts house, plenty of restaurants and shops around. This motel was ridiculous. The walls in our room were stone, which they "cleverly" painted on to create the illusion that we weren't staying in a prison.

So here's a story. My girlfriend discovered our sheets had a stain on them. When the manager was confronted, he simply cut off every sentence she said, replying with "I inspect them myself!!" and refusing to change them. We slept without sheets for the rest of the weekend.

This motel is not the worst I've stayed in, but it certainly has the worst customer service I have ever seen and would not recommend it to anyone staying in cape cod.

during the independence day weekend, we stayed at the barnacle motel, and we had a great stay, the staff was friendly, and their was no smell in the room, or bedbugs. the pool was great, being nice and cool on a hot summer's day. Before we left, the owner even offered us some free coffee for my dad. overall, we had an excellent stay, and will probably be back soon.

If you are looking for a place to sleep – this is it. Our room was clean, new carpet. I did happen to stay in the back of the motel and had no issues. It was very quiet at night. The guy at the front desk knew the area very well. As a single mom traveling with a 2 year old, I’d stay here again. Great location and great value.

We had a nice stay, but after checking out we realized that we had been bitten all over (30+ insect bites), which the doctor identified as bedbug bites. We talked to the manager who would not refund us the money and denied that there were any bedbugs. We reported this to the Dennis Dept of Public Health & Dennis Chamber of Commerce, and as a result the motel is currently under investigation by the Dept of Public Health. Reading online reviews, it appears that the hotel has been infested for some time and has not dealt with the problem. If you have any leads on bedbugs you can contact the dept of public health in Dennis, MA at [--].
