Heading off tomorrow for a jaunt that starts in Wellfleet, MA via Logan to Barcelona and then to France. Along the way, traveling and visiting with good friends and family, we will do our best to absorb the abundant offerings of coastal, mountain, countryside and city landscapes. We'll send some pictures of our favorite stops and sights. All ...

The local Barnstable Oysters have a sweet, nut-like flavor and firm meats with a unique "crunch" to their texture. They were amazing!

Historical Traveler Reviews Beach N Towne Motel South Yarmouth
Cape's best kept secret
You could not find a better value. The rooms were clean, spacious, quite yet convenient to most activities. It is situated midway between Woods Hole and Providencetown. The owners were friendly, curtious and knowledgeable of the area.
We booked two nights at this motel based upon the great reviews we had read. The rate was so incredibly low that we were a little apprehensive about staying here, but we put our trust in other Trip Advisor reviewers. They didn't let us down. When we pulled into the property, my first impression was that it looked fair. I am used to staying at bigger hotels. The room, however, was spacious enough for a family of 4, clean and quiet with a country decor. The furniture and bedding, while not brand new, is in excellent condition and kept clean. You can't ask for more when staying at a motel for under $50 a night (they honor AAA discounts). My husband and our two children really enjoyed this little motel. We never felt crowded and we got restful sleep. The bed was very comfortable, too. They even gave us a free roll-away bed for one of our children and there was still plenty of room to walk around. This was a great choice for a quiet little place to stay in Cape Cod without spending a lot. The staff was very friendly and responsive to our needs. Its central location on Cape Cod is convenient, too, since we did a lot of sightseeing.
Quant, Cozy, Clean.
Like another reviewer of this motel, I was skeptical on staying at a motel. I wasn't sure what to expect at first, but everything was perfect. We arrived late, and the keys were left for us. The room was clean, and the space was perfect for 3. The owners gave us superb recommendations (the places to eat, see, and visit all exceeded expectations and gave you the local's perspective on the great things to do on the Cape).
I'll be honest, the rooms aren't decorated like a 5 star hotel, and the bathrooms could be remodeled... but who cares?! Its Cape Cod, you're not going there to stay in your room. Its clean, and more than fairly priced.
A good motel
Stayed at this motel last weekend during our visit to Cape Cod. Considering its very low price, it is well worth the money. The staff at the motel is very friendly, recommended to us many places to visit and good restaurants nearby. The room has a mini-fridge, but has no TV (which was okay with us though).
Winter on the Cape
It is difficult to believe that the Cape could be a great spot to vacation in the winter. The snowscapes are beautiful. This little motel, with its accomodating staff, was clean, warm and quiet. The service was great. Even though the staff was busy with a lot of snow removal, they were never to busy to be pleasant and helpful to guests.
A new favorite
Even in the depths of the winter snow, this charming little motel is a wonderful place to stay. The staff, although hip deep in snow, was never to busy to be helpful and courteous. I can't wait to visit this summer.
Stayed at this motel for two nights and was very pleased with my stay. At first I didn't think that a motel was such a good idea, but they have compeletly changed my thoughts on motels. The room was clean, the sheets and towels were clean, everything was in tip top shape. The owners were extremely polite. My husband and I are already planning next year's vacation and are staying here AGAIN. They have a nice pool, but I never got a chance to use it. There is also a nice room by the pool just for relaxing. There's a fireplace in there and two or three sofas, with a few bookcases. It's very relaxing. I would recommend this place to anyone who want to kick back and have a relaxing vacation. The city it self is only a few blocks away, so you can even go out to the little shops or an all night bar.
Clean, friendly, good sized rooms with generous service and friendly staff. Ideally located and the best value on the Cape by far. I wouold not stay anywhere else.
My parents were the original owners of the Beach 'N Towne Motel. I know the quality that went into building that motel, such as, air chambers between to rooms for sound proofing, quality materials and Ethan Allen furniture. Originally the wallpapers were designed by my dad. The swimming pool was one of if not the first on the Cape and is the only all steel pool. The motel was built in 1955, the pool was put in the following year and in 1957 it was heated with gas. You will not go wrong staying there and you get a good value. We owned it for 16 seasons, my job as a kid was the grounds and the pool. We still live in town and the present owners maintain it well. Give it a try.
Great family motel
We have stayed at Beach'N Towne on Rte 28 for years. Great family runs
it, rooms are clean, bright, and attractive with a number of amenities.
Prices are the best we've seen Easy access to everything on the Cape
and within walking distance of shopping, dining, etc. We rate this as
"excellent" from our standpoint--if you are interested in LUXURIOUS
motels/hotels, you might be disappointed, but if you are looking for a
terrific place to stay and great prices, this is the one for you. The
Burgess Family, who run it, are now like "old friends."
