The Skaket Beach Motel is an excellent option for families looking to spend a quiet weekend in Orleans. A Ritz-Carlton, it is not. But if you’re looking for a clean, pet-friendly property with friendly management and excellent customer service while visiting Cape Cod, this is it.
The motel offers several different types of rooms, ranging from deluxe guest rooms to three-room suites. All rooms come with air conditioning and heat, a coffeemaker, a clock radio, and a mini-fridge. While the two- and three-room suites can handle a maximum occupancy of seven to ten people, we think a Deluxe Room is ideal for families, with a maximum occupancy of five. Children under 5 stay free and there is an onsite swimming pool.
Complimentary muffins and coffee are provided every morning, but several supplemental dining options are nearby and shops and stores are located right across the street. The motel is located five minutes away from Skaket Beach — an excellent place to take the family for a day on the water, and is also close to Nauset Beach, the historic Jonathan Young Windmill, and the French Cable Museum.

We stayed here 3 nights and it was great. The bed here was so comfortable, I didn’t want to get out of it!!! Dog friendly in the off season. Very clean, spacious, plenty of amenities, and a good location. I would come back next time we’re are in Orleans!
My husband and I stayed for two nights at this quaint little motel right on 6A. It's conveniently located to the main town as well as to route 6. This no frills motel is very clean. The owners are friendly and serve delicious muffins in the morning.
