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.
