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.

Room tip: Don’t expect luxury

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.

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.
