I'm scared to write a review because this place is a gem and I don't want to blow their cover! My bathroom had glass doorknobs, I was beside myself. Jeannie, she is just the best, really, she made my room change seamless! Thank you Jeannie! The rooms are immaculate and simple, if you want to wine and dine this is not for you. This is where you come to unplug all technology and take late and early walks on the beach. It's where you connect back with nature and realize all of our gadgets, iphones, laptops, tablets really take years off our lives. I felt like a 5yr when I was leaving because I didn't want to leave. Like the other posters said, it's a step back in time. And Nauset Beach is amazing! The beach is pristine, cold and clean and many many seals swim by all day long. There is Liam’s on the beach which has great fast food and lobstah bisque and lobstah rolls. Everyone was eating their famous onion rings. Let me not forget to mention the night sky and the stars....wow! So bright it felt like you could reach out and touch them. This place is captivating.

This is the only lodging located within the Cape Cod National Seashore. The rooms are bare-boned but squeaky clean. Every room has a large picture window overlooking the sea. The beds were comfortable. The motel provides toiletries, bath towels, bedding and a small fridge. No coffee pot. I stocked up on instant coffee and used hot water from the tap, but we had no cups to drink our coffee from. There is a vending machine and ice machine.This place is terrific if you come prepared. Short walk to the beach over the public beach parking lot. Would stay again if I wanted to be on the beach, otherwise a quaint inn might be nice. PS, the on-site managers are delightful!

Nauset Knoll is a old style "Motor Lodge" owned by the US Government as part of the National Seashore. It has an unbelievable view and easy walk right down to beautiful Nauset Beach below. Need to bring your own toiletries, hair dryer, coffee maker & cooler as the old motel style rooms appear unchanged since the 1960's, but are very clean. All in all a great value overlooking one of the best Cape Cod National Seashore beaches. Orleans and nearby Eastham offer many other attractions, restaurants, shopping & other bay side & ocean side beaches. If you love the Cape and want a very quiet motel setting with a spectacular view of the ocean side at an affordable rate....this is the place!

This is a charming small motel - just 10 or so ground floor rooms - sort of cabins really.

They are set on a small hill that overlooks the bay, from your bed you can see the ocean through the large windows - we saw wales out at sea.

There is a path to take you straight to the beach, which is great.

The rooms themselves are basic - there is no fridge, or wifi and mobile phone coverage is limited but it is more than made up for in my opinion by the lovely sea view. Access to all the local facilities is just a short car drive away.

The guy who runs it is really helpful.

As other reviewers have said, the Nauset Knoll is basic but the views are anything but! The room was large, 2 double beds with a couch and a chair, television with cable. No internet service or phone, if you can't unplug this is not the place for you. Bring a blowdryer if you need one. The room was immaculate though we spent most of our time outside either on a lounge chair on the lawn or on Nauset Beach, a two-minute walk from the motel. Prices reasonable for Cape Cod, downright inexpensive for being on the water! If you can get a reservation, go!

Room Tip: All rooms have picture windows facing the ocean, the sun comes in brightly through the blinds in the morning so bring a sleep mask if want to sleep in.
