Even’tide Resort Motel and Cottages
Ranked #1 of 4 Hotels in Wellfleet
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 27 August 2014

We had to visit the Cape for an event and selected the Even'tide for a couple nights because we didn't want to deal with a week-long rental or pay the crazy prices for high-end Cape hotel or resort.

The basic room at the Even'tide reminded me of roadside motels and family vacations in the midwest back in the 1960s -- compact, dark rooms, tiny bathrooms, simple amenities. There are flat-screen TVs, coffee makers and small refrigerators, and free Wi-Fi service, but that's about it. The room was clean and the bed was fine. The motel is far enough off the road so traffic noise is not an issue. The blinds / drapes could be better in their light-blocking quality. This facility features a very large indoor pool which is nice, although it is rather dark. There's a small playground for kids and a little shuffleboard and stripped down mini-golf area. The motel backs onto the 22-mile long paved Cape Cod bike trail and you can walk it a mile or two to the trailhead to find a couple bakeries with coffee, pastries, etc. There's also a mile-long walking trail through the woods to Marconi Beach. Plenty of restaurants are within a ten-minute drive, either south into Eastham or north into Wellfleet.

The staff was friendly and helpful. This Mom 'n Pop operation is certainly pleasant enough for a night or two stay.

My family and I stayed at the Even'tide Resort Motel and Cottages this July and we loved it! It was perfect for us!! We have twins whom are toddlers and the room size was great and the front room gave us an area to sit away from the beds if the boys went to bed earlier or were napping. The rooms were also very quiet! We were shocked to learn there was a baby in the room above us the next morning because we never heard a sound. We were grateful they were so quiet when one of our boys had a meltdown and our room neighbors said they never heard a peep! The boys LOVED the playground right out front and the pool. When we come back in the afternoon the boys were jumping to go out and play on the playground. My husband and I could take turns with them being entertained on the playground while we got ready for dinner. The heated pool was also another afternoon favorite along with the ping pong tables! My husband and I got a chance to have a little fun sneaking in a game while the boys cheered us on. Also the in-room fridge was super helpful to keep snacks and fruit on hand for the boys. My husband and I were thrilled with the location as well which is right on the bike path. We had bikes delivered to the property which they accepted and kept locked for us until we needed them. They also kept them and made sure they were properly returned. We rode to some great beaches and it was a very easy and beautiful ride. The bike path is amazing but it seems even on the roads people are used to bikers and we felt very comfortable with the boys in the toddler seats on the bikes We could also ride to the bakery for breakfast which was great for the whole family. We found there to be many great restaurants close by as well, which was a life saver after a day at the beach and two tired hungry toddlers. We could easily get to a great dinner option and be back for bed time. As our first time to the Cape we also found it easy to explore other towns, Provincetown and Chatham were easy trips for us, and we were excited to see all the highlights of the Cape. The staff at the Even'Tide was outstanding and super friendly. Everyone helped us with tips and pointed out great spots to explore which were suitable for toddlers. We found a wonderful local secret at one of the ponds which was outstanding for the boys. Overall we loved our stay, and would love to return next year! It was absolutely perfect for our family.

This motel is incredibly quiet, you do not hear a thing through the walls and seems to also attract a respectful crowd. The room and bathroom were not large but they were the cleanest I have ever seen and comfortable king bed. The pool was really nice and we even got in a few games of ping pong when we were done with our swim. There is a bike trail behind the motel as well as a walking trail to Marconi Beach. It is set back from Route 6 and you do not hear the road traffic. The staff were all really friendly and helpful.
We will definitely go back in the future!

Room Tip: We stayed in a back room, second floor, facing the woods and it was very quiet.

We stayed here for 4 nights in a 1 bedroom suite. The main bedroom is large with a good size fridge, the bathroom is a little on the small size but perfectly adequate. There is a seperate small lounge area with a sofa bed and table and chairs. The suite is for up to 6 people but personally feel it would be a bit of a squeeze to have 6 in here for any length of time. There is a very large indoor pool which was advertised as heated but didn't seem to be to me, kids enjoyed it all the same though. All the cottages around the property looked cute. We took the walk from the motel to Marconi Beach (you can get a map from reception), it was a little confusing but a pleasant walk though the woods. Motel is set quite far back from the road so there wasn't any noise. All staff were very helpful and friendly.
A visit to the drive in movie theatre (5 minutes away) was great fun!

Room Tip: Room 8 did get noise from people walking upstairs and side stairs to upper floor

Had a last minute stay here. The staff were helpful and accommodating. Loved the fact they gave us beach towels for the day. Would come again if in Wellfleet.
The main road is busy but we could not hear the traffic.

Great place to stay in Wellfleet MA, Cape Cod. The best ocean side beaches are very close, and the bike trail is right behind the motel. Clean and comfortable with a beautiful pool. Wonderful restaurants nearby and a drive in movie theater. Great for families or couples.

Room Tip: two room suites available for families are great. separate tv/bedroom

I can't say enough good things about Eventide. We spent 5 nights in the apt above the main building, and it was great. Very clean, comfortable and large, larger than we expected. Most of all, though, the staff were amazing. We had all kinds of requests and they were able to help us with all of them,
including finding a very nice babysitter, lending us
equipment for the beach and other things. Fantastic stay.
