In this quiet space we weren’t conscious of neighbors, although the hotel looked almost full. Our car had a reserved spot just opposite our room’s entrance, so it was easy unloading our bags. The room also had a sliding glass door leading to a private patio bordering a sprawling grassy space sprinkled with tall oaks and pines and surrounding a firepit, giving our morning coffee a peaceful, spacious feel. For an exceptionally good breakfast, Tony and Laura’s was right across the entrance driveway, and a rails-to-trails bike/walking path could be accessed through an archway at the back of the property. The room was a decent size, with refrigerator, microwave and coffeemaker. Owner and hands-on manager Helen was omnipresent when you needed her and gave wonderful, insider advice to tourists, including parking tips for the nearby National Seashore beaches.…
Motel has been updated, especially the bathroom. Comfortable bed, flat screen TV, sm fridge, microwave and coffee pot. The room was clean and comfortable There is a lovely restaurant across the parking lot for a great breakfast. The staff at the hotel was friendly and helpful. The one downside is the lack of electrical outlets. There were none on either side of the bed on the night stands. My husband plugged his phone in the bathroom outlet and mine was across the room. It was a minimal inconvenience. It's location is perfect and we would stay again.
I have stayed at the Blue Dolphin 4 times. Is it a Hilton, no, but what I can say is that it is your basic , clean, typical Cape cod motel. I had a need to respond to last review because it bother me so much. If you have such a fear of BUGS then I suggest you do not come to the Cape in summer. But this motel does not have a bug problem. Yes, finding a bug in the bed is off putting for sure, perhaps you could of had them put fresh sheets on the bed.
Attempted to stay here in beginning of June. Already had an instant iffy feeling about the room and I pulled down the comforter to see a dead bug crusted to the fitted bed sheet. I brought this up to front desk and the woman had mentioned that bug was too big to be a bed bug. I checked out right then and the woman told me to call back to see if manager approved a refund. Called my CC company and hotel is refusing to give my refund for the 2 nights I did not stay. I know this might sound ridiculous to some but I have a phobia of bugs in my bed. I don't want to pay to over 100 dollars per night to sleep with bugs.
Traveled for a one night stay to explore the cape cod beaches and towns. Check in was easy, room was clean and comfortable. Host upgraded our unit to a room combination with two full baths. Central convenient location to Provincetown, Chatham and all beaches. All we needed.
I debated writing this review bc I truly don't like to hurt people, but I wish there would have been a more honest review when I was looking. I advise against staying here. I am not a fan of motels in general, but IMO, the pictures are incredibly deceiving. Yes, the room looks like that (carpet/desk/etc), BUT our room was very very dirty. The carpet was not attached to the floor (and was definitely not vacuumed), there was SO MUCH HAIR in the tub I wonder if the room was even cleaned (with COVID, cleanliness is an important concern.) The comforters were stained with who knows what and it smelled SO BAD....like an animal smell. I was happy to find out later that there were no pets allowed, so it must have just been a "sitting around unoccupied" smell. We ran to the general store to get air freshener just to be able to stay here. It is absolutely an old run down motel that has been (very cheaply) facelifted for photos. I am shocked by the other reviewers that said this place was clean. Doing a quick clean of the room resulted in a washcloth that was literally black. If I were to ever go back to Cape Cod, I doubt I would stay in Eastham, but if I did, there are many other options that I would consider first. Ex: Wellfleet Motor Lodge, Ocean Park, Eagle Wing. On a positive note, the woman who checked us in could not have been nicer, gave us lots of tips about the area and provided us with new linens when requested...beds were relatively comfy and water was hot.…
If your looking for a clean bed in four walls this is the place. Excellent front desk. They have a pool. Very good pricing, considering the location. They are in process of updating the rooms Down sides. Loud AC Towels on the thin side Yes will stay again
My wife and I stayed at the Blue Dolphin Inn for 2 nights in July. The level of service we received here was one of the best we’ve ever experience in our 30 years of travel. We got a no hassle early check in. When we decided to try Marconi Beach, since we didn’t have our car with us, we needed to Uber to a local beach shop to pick up some cheap chairs, umbrella etc. before going to the beach. The manager said the Inn doesn’t have equipment to loan out, however she went over to her car, and let us use her own cooler, chairs, and umbrella. It was hot that weekend and my wife and I drank lots of bottled water. The manager went out to store for her supplies and surprised us with a gallon of water! The hotel is older, but it’s well taken care of, clean, has plenty of hot water, and was centrally located. The price was reasonable. The people at this Inn made the experience exceptional.I would not hesitate to stay there again the next time we’re on the Cape.…
This is an older motel but the personal greeting and service bring the rating up. We got an upgraded room and the hostess even found us a cast off foam cooler at departure for our leftovers and drinks. There is a spacious, tree filled park-like area in the center of the property that is very unique. Sort of like staying on the edge of a park. The adjacent restaurant had good reviews and looked appealing but had limited hours and was not open the day we were there (Wednesday).
My friend and I stayed at the Blue Dolphin Inn for two nights during a busy Cape Cod season. Given the affordable price (compared to other accommodations in the area) and its proximity to Provincetown (only about 30 minute drive away), we opted to stay at a decent motel. The room was quite humid (granted, it is mid-summer), so we had to keep the A/C on basically the entire time to make sure the room didn't get muggy and our towels would dry. The towels were very thin and not very clean-looking, but the room itself was recently updated though it could do with some detailed small fixes. The beds were comfortable, and you can't beat the location for the price. The hotel itself is quiet and the staff were friendly.
