“Rt 28 paradise”
Reviewed 5 November 2012

If you’ve stayed at motels/hotels/back ally rooms on rt 28 you know that generally the really really really stink (literally and figuratively).

We’ve been coming to the Cape and islands for many years. Often on our Nantucket trip we like to come out a couple days early, enjoy Hyannis, get our Arnold’s fix (Wellfleet), and just get a little pre-vacation in. Well, we’ve been searching for a solid, budget concise place to stay for a long time. We’ve tried numerous other hotels (10+) on rt28 and have had horrible experiences. Which is the reason for the title….

I think we’ve found a slice of rt 28 budget hotel paradise. ALL we want is a clean, solid room, with a clean pool. That’s it. We’re not expecting a Marriot (if so, we’d simply stay at one!) with flat screens, high-end everything. No, just a clean, functional room. I think we’ve found it!

Room:
Have I said clean enough? I know I’ve seen some other reviews that said they weren’t happy, but our experience was only positive. A clean room! Nice big beds, everything worked. Was there some wear? Yes, but at a budget price, should you expect the Ritz?

Pool: Spacious and clean. Kids had a BALL.

Extras: A small arcade room, which the kids loved.

Location: Centrally located. Easy to Hyannis, to Rt 6 (if you are heading out to Wellfleet!), rt 28 does have it’s typical traffic, but not to crazy.

We will be trying this again in August prior to our Nantucket trip, to see how it holds up in-season (this was a fall trip). Fully expect to be satisfied once again. Sorry to make this sooooo long, its just we've had so many poor experiences on rt28!

Spacious and clean rooms. Helpfull staff. Free parking right outside our room. There's a small cafe on site that serves a great breakfast at a good price. Close to the shore and beaches. Cape Cod mall is closeby aswell if you need to do some shopping.

Neat clean rooms with comfortable beds, granite sink, and ceramic tile in bathroom. Pleasant atmosphere and helpful staff... some were Eastern European students. Small restaurant on site but breakfast may not be included, although our tour group leader made arrangements for a nice one to be provided. No nearby fast food restaurant. Stayed there three days and would readily return.

Room Tip: Request room near stairway/elevator to avoid long hallway treks.

My cousin was on cape cod visiting me and he couldn't stay at my house because he is allergic to cats. A friend told me to book him at the Cape Point, so I did. Not only were the rates low but we went there to pick him up and the inside was awesome. You walk in and look down and there are huge fish swimming. My cousin got a lot of use from the huge pool, the hot tub, the sports bar, and he said the breakfast was awesome in the cafe. We wen t back to the hotel and played cards in the room. The room was very spacious and he had a slider with a table and chairs on the terrace.
I must say he was more then happy with his stay and he can be a bit fussy being from NY city and all. If anyone from the Cape Point reads this, thanks for treating my cousin so well. He needed a nice weekend he's had a lot of stress lately.

People were friendly but there were several little things that made this hotel not as good as others. They have several doors to the outside along the length of the building so you don't have to walk a long way, which sounds like a good idea. If they were all working, that is. The food in the cafe was OK but very expensive. Don't stay on the first floor! If you get people with heavy footfalls when they walk, you will hear every step! It sounded at one point like they were moving the furniture around! Their beds are billed as queen size but to me they were on the skimpy side. And the mattress sagged in the middle. Good part is that they are pretty centrally located.

Room Tip: Go for the second floor rooms as you can hear everything above you when on the first floor.

Wow, that is the first time the Cafe has been called expensive. Some examples: French Toast $4.95, Three egg omelette with two ingredients $6.95, Two eggs,bacon,homefries,and toast, $5.50, Our famous Banana Walnut Pancakes $5.95. Let me give you a tip, don't go for breakfast in a City Hotel If you think we are expensive. Besides being affordable we have many, many, accolades about how good the food is in our Cafe.

After checking trip advisor reviews, decided on this hotel. Great out of season rates. The room was large and clean. Got tips on staying on the grassy side of the motel, and the second floor. The outdoor and indoor pools were nice and clean. The hotel had a definite resort feel about it. Lovely breakfast at a low cost. The room was very charming. Will definitely stay here again. We don't stay anywhere until we check the reviews on trip advisor first.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the grassy side, second floor. If you want to use the outdoor pool, the far end u...
