Strong smell of oil-based paint

Posted 12-Oct-2013
Pros: Not far from Cape Cod Hospital.
Cons: If the goal of Castle Dawn is to remain a 2-star hotel, then they shouldn't change anything.
Well, it's a two-star hotel, but you always hope that at least you'll get some sleep. Not here. The room had a strong smell of oil-based paint. We would have changed hotels, but it was getting late when we checked in. We ran the air conditioner all night to keep the fumes from being over-powering.

Cheap but not all that clean.

Posted 09-Sep-2013
Pros: The owner / manager was pleasant. Pets allowed. The beds were clean and fairly comfortable. Great water pressure in the shower.
Cons: Cleanliness. Soundproofing. Again it's an old motel -- You could hear every room above you, beside you, and outside.
Location: It's Cape Cod, I think you know!
Okay, it's a cheap motel, so I didn't expect much. That said, I have stayed at equally cheap motels (the Brentwood) where they keep the facilities much cleaner and in working order. The room had a bit of an odor to it -- as if perhaps it had been a smoking room at one time and they weren't quite able to get the smell out. You could see the parts of the carpet where they just didn't bother to vacuum. I normally don't notice that sort of thing, but it was pretty visible. The dresser had some sort of structural issue where the bottom drawer wouldn't close. The mirror was on the floor, leaning against the wall. Maybe they were caught mid-renovation? The bathroom had a definite "used" smell. The toilet seat was worn through to the wood. The cleaning staff didn't get to the room until after 6:00PM, at which point I told them to never mind. Old TV with pretty poor reception.

A little better than I expected, real solid value.

I was impressed at the condition and cleanness for the price point. They did not have the room we reserved due to a maintenance issue.

Quick Improvised Night

Posted 28-Aug-2013
We rented this room at the last minute. Once there the manager/owner gave us indication to the nearest beaches, restaurant and attractions. Th room was very clean and the bed soft. Great experience for the price

Place to sleep.

Posted 21-Aug-2013
Pros: Place to sleep.
Cons: Cleaning.
4 Hispanics staying there were working on truck out side my room for 6 hours, drinking, etc. They had an extension cord for light from their room running across in front of my room.

Disapointed

Posted 21-Aug-2013 on Hotels.com
The pool was closed, not as advertised. The continental breakfast was late!!It did not start until after 8am and the selection was very limited. The room smelled of mildew. I will not return here.
