I am so angry that we spent the night at this place. The smell of mold (or mildew) in the small dark room is overpowering, and the amenities (aside from the television) are shabby. It is obvious that this motor inn is a cash-cow for the owners. Beneath the facade is a sick, old building that needs demolishing. And, btw,...

Well since I didn't have anybody by that name stay with me I really have nothing to say to this person except maybe he or she should find a life.

The choice to book the room was budget and dog friendly driven. We arrived at 9PM and upon entering the room turned on the air and the room cooled quickly. We heard no outside noises due to the AC running. The room was appointed as expected for budget friendly roadside motel on the cape. The beds were comfy. The home...

See through sheets, washed too many times, the pillow was similar to what you get on a plane..towels also threadbare....a funky odor in the room, owner very rude....too busy to talk to me, way too expensive for what I got...hot tub closed. I will not be staying here again

An old fashioned motel - comfortable, clean place to sleep - refrigerator and microwaves in room. Separate building with indoor salt-water pool and Jacuzzi tub. Free wifi and Direct TV, morning coffee and homemade muffins. Not luxurious or modern décor.

I enjoyed my stay at the Mainstay. Although it's very old school motor lodge, it was kept up well, clean, and had mini fridge and microwave in the room. The people running the inn were very nice and helpful and made for a pleasant stay. The indoor pool and hot tub are a great plus. This is very conveniently located...

We stayed for 2 nights with our 2 young girls, 3 and 5. The woman who checked us in was very nice. Owner? Not sure... We stayed in room 30, the biggest room. As soon as we opened the door we were met with an extreme musty odor, and the air was off and not a window cracked. It was...

Unfortunately we cannot make everyone happy and I apologize to this guest if they didn't have a good time with us. On principle we don't leave the AC running in the room we try to do our best to try to conserve energy, we try to be Green. Direct TV does not provide Hi-Def boxes for motel rooms and it...

The Mainstay served me well-- OK, it's not fancy, but perfectly adequate, nice mattress, pleasant staff, clean & safe.....appreciated the fridge & microwave. Location great for my itinerary. I was lucky to get a suitable place on such short notice!

Great location with well-appointed, albeit dated, rooms which included a microwave and small refrigerator. The saltwater pool and hot tub were closed so, unfortunately, we didn't get a chance to use them. The exterior was clean and attractively landscaped and offered ample parking. Our room was on the first floor close to the office. We didn't hear any outside sounds...

We stayed here for one night with my family and friends. The salt water pool was cool and refreshing. The room was clean and stocked with supplies. The heater was not working well in our room, yes its June but it was unseasonably cool. The manager/owner gave me a personal heater to warm our room and was very accommodating. We...

I was in town to go to the Oysterfest in Wellfleet, MA an annual weekend event. Picked this motel because it was close to the festival. I saw other reviews but they were not real bad. I realize it is an old motel and can make excuses for older furniture and windows. The bathroom was small with a floor heater...
