When walking into the room a old musty, smokey odor hit me. I left the door open for a while hoping it would help, then turned air conditioner on which was old damaged, had knob's missing and blew an awful smelly air. The furniture was old, damaged and dirty. Cobb webs in the light fixtures and under desk. The refrigerator was old and dirty, the ice bucket was used for ashtray and not cleaned. Room was very dark and lacked of electrical outlets. Beds sheets and mattress covers had nasty stains. Strange, shady looking people were standing outside of room smoking. Part of hotel is homeless living quarters

It took me about 30 min to try this place because of the photos but after finding everything else booked it was my a beggars aren't choosers approach. Like others noted the rooms are dark and dated. They also hold a musty smell. Presumably from the rugs. For a highly sensitive allergy person this might be a hard place to stay... That said I was pleasantly surprised at how clean my room was. It's obvious the manager takes pride in his work. The bathrooms look like they've had a re-bath job done. The bedding was fresh and clean. I didn't spot so much as a spider and I looked. Bugs are a deal breaker for me. I'd stay here again but the price is a bit much. I know it's cape cod but 137.00 for that dated a room is a bit crazy. Consider using some of the money to replace carpets.

We were leaving Cape Cod looking for a place to stay for the night. We found this old fashioned no frills, family run (21 years same owner) motel. Reasonable rates. Clean! Functional furnishings - couch, end tables, sturdy coffee table, comfortable chairs, desk, etc. In room coffee, flat screen cable TV, free wi-fi, refrigerator with freezer, micro-wave, hair-dryer, iron with ironing board. Efficient, quiet HVAC. Friendly, helpful family owners.

We wanted just to stay one night so we were charged $10.00 more for a room that smelled....everything was old looking....there was mold around bathroom sink on the cocking....if you stand on the deck and look down, there were mice running around....gross!!!! Please drive by!

After being stranded with a broken down car, we were fortunate to be able to walk to the Atlantic Motel. The staff was extremely helpful, able to provide a non-smoking room and accommodate our pet on a moment's notice. We stayed for 2 nights. The room was comfortable, clean, had microwave and small fridge. The pool was an extra bonus and it was well kept and pleasant. They were very nice, providing us with directions, recommendations on things to do in the area and suggestions for help with our car. We are very lucky we found them and were happy with our stay!

Being from the Wareham area ( many years ago ) I now go back home a week a year in the Summer. Last year was the first time I used The Atlantic. I was most pleasantly surprised by the friendliness, cleanliness and accomodations for a small town motel. It is close to both Wareham and Buzzards Bay. While it's not The Ritz ( who would expect that in E Wareham ? ), I will book this year's vacation there as well!

When my two year old went to pull the blanket back there was hair in sheets and all on the pillow in both beds! There was white blotches of something on the carpet throughout the room. The room also had a horrible smell to it, if by choice I would NEVER stay here or suggest it to anyone. Weather on or off season they should stay clean year round!

Excellent location, clean rooms with basic amenities, we were four and they had a room with 2 large beds, so all of us could stay together in one room just for $160!! MMA is just about 10 minutes drive and so is Onset Beach. The owners are courteous and helpful. I would recommend this place for its value, cleanliness and location.

We spent one unplanned night here when our car broke down on the way home from a weekend in Cape Cod. While I wouldn't have stayed here otherwise, the motel was perfectly acceptable. Our room was clean, with a king-size bed and small table and chairs (more comfortable club chairs than simple dining chairs). Decor seemed a bit different for every room, but was modern and up-to-date. Not the finest mattresses or linens, but more than adequate. There is a small outdoor pool, but you must request access because the owners keep it padlocked. The motel is two story, with all non-smoking rooms (but you can smoke outside on the porch/upper walkway). TV, phone, iron/board, hairdryer provided, but very limited/basic toiletries. Without a car, we were still able to walk to a number of places, including a convenience store, pizza shop, and Chinese food restaurant right around the corner. Also close by are a Chili's and a Ninety-Nine Steakhouse, and a strip mall with a Wal-Mart, grocery store, Blockbuster (although there is no DVD or VCR in the room), TJ Maxx, liquor store, fast food outlets, and a water park (seasonal). Look for this hotel’s website online at [--]--for such a small property, they have an extensive website with good links. AAA discount available.

Excellent motel, close to everything and onset beach, Good value for the money. I reserved at one of the other motel in the town. I didnot like the room so I ask clerk for the closest one. I have stayed here twice and may be coming back again. I am recommending to everybody I know.
