I initially chose this resort because I thought it was right on the main street downtown. Last time we stayed at the Courtyard Resort, which was a great location right in town. It turns out this was actually on WEST Main St., a mile from town. Driving was easy, but it wasn't conducive to walking to all the restaurants at night.
However, as it turns out, we really liked the location! It was quiet and right next to a Shaw's supermarket and our favorite breakfast place, The Daily Paper. When they gave us the key and we checked out the room, we found that it had a queen bed, and it was an upstairs unit. I hated the thought of dragging my huge suitcase upstairs with no elevator. I did the like the layout of the room, though. I believe it was #30 or #31. I went to the office to see if they had any king bed units, and they said they did but it had a spiral staircase. We didn't care about that so they were very happy to switch us.
We really liked the unit. It was #3 right across from the office. You walk into the bedroom with a big closet and full bath. Then upstairs is a really nice kitchen/living room area with a half bath and deck. I loved spending time up there, especially when my boyfriend was sleeping in the morning. There's also a TV on both floors. The WiFi was free and fast. They also have complimentary coffee (and even donuts on Sunday) in the office, but it doesn't open until 8 am. If you need coffee before then, there's a Dunkin' Donuts within walking distance (5 minutes).
There's no housekeeping, which I kind of liked (we didn't have to worry about our valuables since there was no safe in the room); however, they had an envelope for a tip for the maid, which I found strange since we never saw her. I wasn't sure what to do about that but we did leave a nominal amount.
I would definitely go back to Cape Winds. I never met Clayton but the rest of the office staff were very friendly and accommodating.
