We chose this Motel primarily because they told us of the direct access to the Cape Cod Trail. Since riding the trail was our primary purpose for our 5 day mini-vacation, it was the deciding factor. We had previously reserved a basic room but later upgraded to one on the ground floor with a patio so that we could park our bikes out of the weather. The cost, pre-season, was $97 plus tax.
Pros: Friendly front desk staff. Large room. Clean. High quality coffee maker and coffee.
Cons: The direct access to the trail is via a poorly maintained dirt trail about 100 yards away from the Cape Cod Trail itself. The exterior of the property is unkempt with grass growing in the parking lot and in need of some sweeping. The room is adequately furnished but no soundproofing. The bathroom has no shelf for placing toiletries. We asked the sheets be changed (it isn't done every day and that's perfectly OK) after I spilled some soda the previous night. That request was not relayed to housekeeping. Fortunately we saw the housekeeper and she provided the needed service. Our building was empty except for ours and one other room. The room given to that guest, with a pre-teen son who bounced off the walls (and floor), was directly over our room with virtually no soundproofing. The noise was terrible and assigning that room when all others were unoccupied, defies logic. The cost was $30 above a much better property in Orleans. For anyone wanting to ride the trail we recommend the Seashore Park Inn in Orleans. Much better maintained and about 30 yds. away from the trail via a paved road.
