    Property condition


    • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities

    There was no shampoo, conditioner or body lotion in the room. Only a makeup remover pad. Seems pretty chintzy. The motel did not have coffee makers in the room. Nor did it have coffee available in the office. On the plus side, the room was clean, cheery and beds were comfortable.

    Good Time in Cape

    We had a very good time on a mid-week multi-day stay. Pool and premises were pristine. Front desk always helpful. Room was all updated with new rugs and updated bathroom. Located right across the street from beach entrance. We would definitely return.

    • Liked: Cleanliness
    • Disliked: Staff & service, amenities

    I booked this property through Expedia and paid for myself, my husband and then I added my two children, 7 years old and 5 months. I was given a total, but then when I got to the hotel I was told I owed additional L for my 5 month old. Apparently Expedia doesn’t account for that somehow but it wasn’t clear on the motel’s listing that I would need to pay more for him when I got there. The woman behind the counter wasn’t friendly at all and didn’t apologize or anything for the confusion, she just said “ we charge for every human.” There are no shampoos in the hotel either which we were expecting. We needed to run out to cvs to pick some up after we realized. No phones in the room either.

    • Disliked: Staff & service, amenities

    The motel was definitely no frills, which would have been fine... except that the office staff was fairly unpleasant and not very accommodating. We requested a pack and play for my 5 month old and the mattress didn’t fit inside properly. They tried to rig it but it just wasn’t safe. None of us slept well because my son kept waking up and I woke up numerous times to check on him. The pool was ok, but they don’t provide towels or anything and there isn’t much shade. They don’t provide beach tags either, even if you are staying for a few nights. Overall our stay was fine and uneventful, but for the money I wouldn’t rush back there to stay again.
