“Cheap, clean, on the water”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 August 2011

If you are looking for a 4 or 5 star resort keep looking. If you are looking for a cheap, clean place to rest your head that is literally right at the beach (walk down the stairs) then you found the right place. We stayed in a room upstairs and the room was old but we noticed that many of the other rooms had been updated..the stairs leading up to our unit were VERY steep so if you are older or have a lot of stuff you may want to ask for a room on the first floor. We slept with the windows open and it was wonderful to listen to the waves all night. It was clean. The beds were great. Very small unit but 2 bedrooms, living area, kitchen area and nice balcony. Will definitely go back but will probably ask for a ground floor because of the stairs..was difficult with the luggage and I have a bad ankle. Bad reviews are probably from people who expected a lot more but if you look at prices for ocean front rooms and compare to this place...BARGAIN!! And really..are you coming to the Cape to sit in your room? The private beach was loaded with cool shells (my daughter found a conch shell!) at low tide and my kids enjoyed taking a swim first thing in the morning and last thing at night. Oh, and as for the reviewers who commented on the smell...if you have ever stayed by the ocean you would know that most places smell a little musty..its just the way it goes..definitely not offensive in the least..the people who gave really negative reviews need to get over themselves or pay premium prices for premium lodging.

The rates are great for a waterfront motel. The rooms are small but clean. It's wonderful because it has a kitchen which allows you to cut down on you vacation expenses. You have access to a private beach which is a major plus! Wonderful place to stay if your planning a vacation on a budget.

My friend and I had the two bedroom unit directly on the beach. Loved the deck overlooking the ocean and spent a lot of time sitting there enjoying the fantastic view. The place was clean, well stocked with necessities and very reasonably priced. The Garlands is in a great, central location and near good restaurants, shopping and activities. The management was wonderful and we will definitely return.
