A home-away-from-home vibe, fresh contemporary decor and budget-friendly amenities make this 128-room property a step up from many hotels along Cape Cod’s busy Route 28. The resort caters to the family set, with both indoor and outdoor pools, a bar and a well-stocked game room. The guestrooms are basic but bright and comfortable, with contemporary light wood furniture; some have pitched ceilings and balconies offering gorgeous views of Lewis Bay. By night, grab a cocktail with friends at the on-site bar or get cozy around the outdoor firepit, which is opened year-round. The hotel is also within walking distance of several popular restaurants in the mid-Cape area.
In the Area
Cape Cod is a mecca for outdoor lovers, and the hotel’s mid-Cape location makes nearby active outings a convenient option. Take a rolling tour of the quaint towns and salt marshes along the 22-mile Cape Cod Rail Trail (bike rentals are available at several shops). About 13 miles from the hotel is Cape Cod Lavender Farm, whose 12 acres and 14,000 plants make it one of the East Coast’s largest producers of the fragrant herb. And any visit to the Cape must include a stop at one of the 10 lighthouses that dot the shoreline.
How to Get There
We stayed on Fri & Sat 10/18-10/20 with another couple.
The check in staff were both friendly and offered us many suggestions for dinner (you will receive some “$6 off two dinner entrees” at some area restaurants in your check in packet)
We used ours at the Yarmouth House that evening for dinner which was a quick 1/3 mile down the road.very good but pricey food.
We enjoyed everything the resort had to offer from the indoor pool and hot tub to the great game room with pool table, air hockey, foos-ball and many other games, the fire pit out back was an awesome place to sit and meet new friends from all over the country while looking out over the river that the property is set on.
My only slight gripe and the reason for the 4 star rating was the lack of gluten free options at breakfast. Besides hard boiled eggs I couldn’t really eat anything. (They do offer Cheerios but I don’t eat cereal so I was pretty limited).
A gluten free bread option would be a great addition. I will remember to bring my own the next time we stay.
The rooms were very clean but we had a lot of noise from the room above us both nights at 2:30 in the morning.
This is not the hotel’s fault but I think next time we will request a second floor room even though there aren’t any elevators I think it would be quieter. The ac/heating unit is also really loud and we ended up shutting it off because it kept waking us up. Luckily it wasn’t needed during our stay.
Despite these minimal glitches I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone and I know we will return. If you’re looking for a great place to stay with plenty to do on site, book the Bayside.
A really professional website set our expectations high, so the reality seemed worse than it actually is. That and our arrival on a wet day in a bit of a run down area.
This is an above average motel with an indoor pool and sauna. There is also an outside pool and what looks like it would be a nice camp seating area out the back going down to the river on a summer's evening. They light the firepit from 7pm weather dependent, although it was raining for our stay. Staff were very helpful. Nothing really in the immediate vicinity for eating out, so need to drive on what is a busy road.
Breakfast was really good, with a good choice of cereals, bagels, cake, waffles to order, pancakes, and coffee on tap.
Great hotel lovely rooms and indoor and outdoor pools location is great to visit all of the Cape plenty to do at hotel and a lovely complimentary breakfast lovely staff would highly recommend the Bayside Resort Hotel
