Anywhere besides the Cape in summertime, we would have been pretty disappointed with the quality of the room for the price that we paid (around $150-$160/night). However, considering this was, unfortunately, one of the cheapest options on the Cape, and in a good location on Route 6 not far from Marconi Beach, we were satisfied. I am pretty sure the...

This motel is very out of date. The room was fairly clean but the rug was stained and the curtains were stained. Bedspreads were ancient and had rips repaired. The ceiling tiles were water stained and looked as if they could fall down any minute! No coffee maker and the continental breakfast was pathetic - tiny muffins and coffee that...

Rooms are out dated, ugly and smell bad. The bed was lumpy, the pillows flat and the sheets were at least 20 years old. The bathroom was tiny, the tub was cracked and rusty and the shower was like standing in a fine mist. The carpet was industrial drab. The door did not actually lock; the handle locked but you...

This motel covers the basics... but, just barely... It needs some updating and it could be cleaner... It would have been better to pay more and get better accomodations...

More like a flop house. I was tired after a day of driving and saw a sign for a hot tub. I didn't ask to see the room first, but just took it. Was I disappointed! The room was not clean, the hot tub was cloudy, the lamp shade was upside down and couldn't be fixed. I would not stay...

Some people travel to the Cape and expect big extravagant hotels. That is not what the Cape is about. It's about friendliness. The motels and shops on Cape Cod want to make you feel comfortable and at home. We think that the Mainstay hit that perfectly. The staff at The Mainstay was wonderful. There was always someone there to talk...

We loved this place. There is a nice indoor pool and hot tub we took advantage of. The rooms are comfy, clean, nicely appointed and a good size with a refrigerator. The property is clean and the owners are friendly. Their staff is pleasant and always happy to assist you. It is far enough down the cape that the area...

I had the pleasure of staying at "The Mainstay" and I found it to be wonderfully relaxing. The location was the best. There are so many attractions within 5 to 10 miles I had something different to do each day. The Granlunds (the owners) were very friendly and catered to my every whim. They even invited me to spend time...

The owners pretend to care, but they obviously don't based on their output. The rooms are dingy and smelt musty. Bathrooms were very hard to work with due to the cramped space. Bugs were in the room too!! The TV had no signal either. The pool yard was lined with a carpet that was old and disgusting. Also, the pool...
