reservation problem

i have stayed here before and i like to stay in a certain room on the street so i can park my truck and trailer next to the room,but the last two years even though i have made a reservation specifically for this room when i got there they told me it was not available. they do not seem to think this is a problem, but i will never stay here again and tell my friends not to stay her either.

Last minute stay

We realized Cape Cod was expensive especially when you plan a summer weekend a week before traveling. Overall the hotel was ok. It was in a great location and aside from the room being hot when we arrived and the lack of non-smoking rooms, we enjoyed the stay.

Very Good

For starters, the price is right. The staff is polite and helpful. There is a clean indoor pool. The room was clean when I entered. After I left for good I realized I forgot my computer charger. I went back to the room and found the room was already very clean for the next customer. They staff had my charger ready for me at the front desk. I had a very good experience.

A very pleasent stay.

Don't let the name throw you off. This motel has been completely renovated and I was very happy with the room. The bathroom was the only thing that seemed be a little dated, but in such a way as it didn't take away from the nice accommodations in the room. I would definitely stay there again!

The absolute worst

Beware of this place .. the photos posted of the property and the room are far from what you will find.. we arrived late in the evening and had to hunt for another place to stay as we found it completely unsafe and just downright TRASH...! This place is a run down dump that is living on its past glory of being a Travelodge (they still have the old pics !!! ) . !!!!!!STAY AWAY !!!!!!

My girlfriend and I ate at some great restaurants. Our favorite was captain parkers. The hotel room was clean and we were very pleased with our stay. We would definitely stay there again.

Motel is not worth it for the price

Unpleasant stay, room smelled, bathroom had not handwasher and the door had holes on it, not refrigerator. Some common area's carpet uncleaned and swimming pool's water was too cold. I have been at another better locations in the same area for that price or even less.
