Herring Run Motel
Ranked #2 of 5 Hotels in Buzzards Bay
Reviewed 6 June 2017 via mobile

This place is great for a place to relax while fishing at the canal. The rooms are always clean and priced very fair. The manager even has a table set up to fillet the fish on. Besides it's quiet and you can listen to the herring run in the background. Very relaxing. We will be back for sure. Room 7 was nice but the cottage # 20 was great. Definitely my favorite.

Small but comfortable and clean room...no wifi, a bit run down, but very inexpensive. We were not there on vacation, only in town to watch our child play volleyball and did not want to spend a lot or drive a long way to hotel.

If you are in town to fish the Cape Cod Canal then you might want to consider this Motel

First thing is the entrance to hotel.....coming from the North West,it is a very narrow HARD
right turn from the slow lane (no shoulder) and down an incline with traffic on Your butt,pushing you but once you get to know the place you use left turn lane for traffic light coming from other direction

The first room they showed us very small....when we asked for a bigger room the personnel immediately showed us a much larger room...the refrigerator was small with no freezer... it took about 10 minutes and there was a new refrigerator in place....so accommodating

As far as WiFi FORGET IT

The beds where MARGINAL

BATHROOM all fixtures very old and HOT water marginally warm unless run a Looong time

BUT value the BEST($80 nite stay six notes 7th nite free)

We needed a place to stay overnight during a bike ride to the Cape. This was one of the places suggested by the ride sponsors.

It looked really run down from the outside when we showed up, but the room was clean, the bathroom and shower worked, the AC worked, and it was quiet enough at night.

Checking in and out (dropping the room key) were quick and easy.

This is obviously not a luxury hotel, but it served our needs fine. Happy to have stayed there.

The room was clean, the innkeeper was friendly. The price was a bit steep, but I guess that is the area. Anywhere else, this would be a $50.00 room. If it would have been 50.00, I would have rated it higher. No tub, shower only. No hair dryer.
Average is generous considering the price.

We had a great time during our three day star at the hotel! Yes, the hot water took a minute to come up, but once it did there was plenty of it! The room was clean, and the staff asked every day if we needed anything. They also took us on a nice tour of the herring run that snakes alongside the hotel. This is not a sterile, cookie cutter hotel like a Motel 6. This is the true Cape Cod old time hotel experience, and we loved it. If you are a fisherman, just across the street is one of the best places to fish for big stripers and there are a bunch of incredible restaurants withing a couple of miles. HIghly recommended!!
