“just what we needed!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 September 2013

We were looking for a nearby get-away and the Wellfleet Motel was perfect. The room was clean and quiet with a very comfortable king bed. I am super picky about pillows and I loved the pillow! Side sleepers like me usually find hotel pillows to be much too soft. The restaurant on the property served a great breakfast with many choices cooked to order. The service was quick and the staff friendly. We were in B building on the second floor with a mini balcony facing the morning sun. There was a bus tour group in another building but we saw only a couple of guests from that group as their breakfast was scheduled ahead of the serving time for the public and other guests. We walked on the bike trail to Marconi Beach one day and hiked around the Audubon Wildlife area (located a half mile away) the next day. All the staff at the hotel was friendly and welcoming. It was a terrific location for us.

Room Tip: A & B buildings are newer. All are set back from Route 6 and no rooms face the street.

Thank you for your comments. I'm glad you enjoyed our salt water pool. As an owner and manager of the property I prefer a more green approach when using chemicals and we our proud of our commitment to the environment. I apologize that your room was musty upon arrival. Due to our location to the water there is a probability of dampness in the air. We find that by opening the windows or running the air-conditioner helps to dehumidify the air and dissipates very quickly.

First, don't be taken in by the photo of the pool and charming inn looking building. The attractive building is the owner's quarters and the pool is way too close to Rt. 6. Our room was in the older motel building. (I hear the other building has been renovated). The ceiling was stained, the carpet tired and worn and the sheets didn't fit the bed well. they kept sliding off the mattress. To add to our misery, the coffee maker didn't work and the wi-fi had issues. While here we checked on another motel about a mile up Rt. 6 and found nicer rooms and a much lower weekend rate.

Thank you for your comments. Your feedback is very important to us so that we continue to improve the guest experience. The older section of our property has been given a complete makeover inside and out. New windows, exterior doors and siding. The inside of the rooms have been updated with new carpet, wallpaper, furniture, bedspreads, and drapes to provide a clean, crisp, Cape Cod look with white trim and beadboard. We also now have fitted sheets on all our beds. Please visit us again in the future.

Thank you for your feedback on your positive experience staying with us. I'm especially glad you enjoyed breakfast in our cafe. That is something that really sets us apart from the competition. Not having to leave the property for a cooked to order healthy breakfast and then starting the day is always fun on vacation.

We came upon the Wellfleet Motor Inn when another motel messes up our reservation. We were delighted with the room size, comfortable bed and plenty of parking. The pools were nice, and there was a place to grill and eat outside. Worth the money. We'll be going back.

Thank you for sharing your comments. Not many people use our outdoor BBQ but I'm glad you did. This year we are building a new brick patio for people to hangout, grill, and use our picnic area by the outdoor pool.

Stayed here just a few days ago. not too far from the beaches and some decent resturants. We booked a "Queen with the sofa" room and it was nice to be able to spread out. The room has a small fridge, a Keurig coffee maker, and a nice sized flatscreen TV, everything seemed pretty clean. The room did have a slight musty smell, but after running the AC for awhile, it was fine. Overall we would stay here again. We did have breakfast at the on site cafe, food was good and reasonable. We did'nt use the pools, but they looked clean.

Friendly staff, clean rooms, and an indoor and outdoor pool...makes for a happy family! This motel is centrally located in Wellfleet, close to the Drive In Movie Theatre, Marconi Beach and the bike trail. They even offer warm chocolate chip cookies at the reception area. This was a perfect choice for our recent stay...highly recommend!
