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.

Skaket Beach Hotel is a great find. It is very comfortable and very clean, and in close proximity to shopping facilities. The units were quiet despite the hotel being on the highway. The continental breakfast was thoughtfully presented and included home made blueberry and cranberry muffins which were delicious. The proprietors were very friendly and keen to ensure their hotel is top notch. We enjoyed our stay at this well presented hotel.
Great location. Easy off and on highway. Room very clean and quiet. Nice porch in the back to sit and relax. Very pleased. Check in easy and owner's pleasant. Homemade muffins were delicious. Pool closed ha ha November.
