“A decent budget motel option for a quick stay”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 August 2013

Our stay at the Hunters Green Motel was motivated by a need to find a cheap-ish place to crash for a quick night in the high season of summer before heading on to Nantucket. If you find yourself in similar circumstances and in need of a budget motel, then this is a perfectly acceptable choice for you, but if you want any other frills, I might suggest looking elsewhere.

We recently made a trip to Nantucket and given that we'd be arriving in to Cape Cod just before midnight on a Thursday night, we decided to book one night in a hotel/motel close to where the ferry departed so we could get the first ferry in the morning. We opted for the Hunters Green Motel because it was the cheapest available option we could find in the Hyannis/West Yarmouth area with only 2-3 weeks' notice ($88 total for a Thursday night) and we knew we wouldn't be doing anything more than crashing before departing again (indeed, less than seven hours elapsed between our check in and check out).

I cannot speak to the amenities on offer by the hotel or even really say what the hotel looks like in broad daylight, but what we did see was enough for me to know that it's a very standard motel. I probably wouldn't recommend this location for a longer stay, unless you're in the situation where you're traveling with pets, as I bet your options are limited and I know this motel does have pet-friendly rooms. It was supremely easy to park and check-in. The host was quite nice and efficient, pointing out our room through the window. When my significant other went back about twenty minutes later to ask for insider tips on the morning ferry, the fellow was quite knowledgeable and helpful.

We stayed in the first floor room that was closest to the pool, which accounts for the chlorine smell, but the dampness in the room and in the carpeting was entirely due to the mini-fridge that had been dethawed and turned off, presumably to leak a bit. I kept my shoes on at all times while walking about anywhere in the room. The bed was incredibly firm and large but seemed clean, if not cozy. The bathroom was divided so the sink and mirror were tucked behind a partition but always open to the room while the shower/bath and toilet were in a separate, tiny space with a door that closed but had a strip of the faux wood paneling that had ripped away. The word "institutional" comes to mind. Not the best impression, but at least the bath, strip of plastic shower curtain, toilet, and sink appeared clean. Towels were small and scratchy but clean. Overall, these are budget motel rooms that could use updating.

Here's the thing -- we needed this room for a quick evening stop before moving on and this was easy to find, felt safe, and was relatively cheap. It's a motel and so it's what you'd expect, with slightly better hospitality. These rooms aren't meant for charming getaways; they're meant to be a place you sleep while spending your days elsewhere. It delivered on everything we needed, even if the dampness in the room was a definite negative. If we did this trip again in the exact same fashion, I'd be fine staying here again, though I'd probably check around other places to see if anything else was available for a comparable price. And we'd still make a point of checking out early for that first ferry.

you have to question negative reviews as we were just there and our room was clean and well appointed for a value rated motel. We arrived and the office guys were very courteous and helpful as I has misread the payment email. WiFi is strong in and around the office. The pool is a perfect size and very clean with plenty of towels. Coffee in the morning was strong, good and complimentary. Super value in the heart of the cape.

Room Tip: All rooms are walking distance to pool and RT 28.

This was the worst hotel experience I've ever had. The room smelled terrible, the carpet was gross, the air conditioner was loud, the beds were hard and the bathroom was small and dark. The service was okay. Overall this was a terrible hotel experience.

I had stayed at this property twice in the past. I have to say that it has been improved with the current, new owners. You can see where areas were painted, maintenance work was done and improvements added such as the tables with sun umbrellas and a gazebo at the pool.
For the price this is a wonderful place to stay! We stayed in two rooms and both were spotless. While the mattress at first seemed overly firm, none of us complained of being uncomfortable (and 2 of us have Tempurpedics!) The pool was spotless and pool towels were available (a big plus for me).
Being mid-Cape does give you a central location to visit anywhere on the Cape. It is close to Seagull Beach which is my favorite beach on the Cape. There are many restaurants and activities for children. Although right on the main Route 28, the motel was nice and quiet at night.
The desk personnel were friendly, helpful and knowledgeable and the cleaning staff were also helpful and friendly.
Oh yes, the decor does scream of the 1970's, but, if that is a problem go to somewhere where you will pay 3 to 4 times the amount. And the complimentary coffee was very good and much appreciated.

Room Tip: If you or your children plan on using the pool a lot, ask for a room closer to the pool.

Great central location to go anywhere on the Cape. Best coffee on the cape. Wish they would serve it before 8 a.m. Nice pool. Shopping bargains within a walk. Chambermaids cheerful when requsting extra's.

Rooms are large and clean, decent shower, nice pool. Generally a decent place and I can't really see why there are some very negative postings. Mind you, if someone's visited for 40 years, there must be something odd going on.

It's rather quaint in its way - can't remember the last time I saw a cathode ray tube TV! But there is excellent fast wifi and who sits in a motel room watching TV? We enjoyed our stay.

My family and I stayed here for one night on a busy Cape Cod summer weekend. The motel is located close to many different restaurants and beaches. We recommend dinner at Spanky’s Clam Shack in Hyannis, which is about a 15 minute drive. As other posters have said, yes, the motel is a bit dated. It’s your typical budget motor inn motel. That said, I think we got a good deal for the price we paid compared to what else was around. The staff was very friendly upon check in and the process was quick. Our first floor room was very clean and everything worked the way it should. The beds were comfortable and firm with dated but clean linens. We also used the pool area with our kids and it was fairly well maintained and had plenty of seating. From our perspective, the big pluses for this motel were the location and the price (and the fact we were able to find it at the last minute). If you are going to be spending your days exploring the Cape and are simply looking for a home base to sleep at, this place will work just fine.
