"Old fashioned 50s motel but had charm!"
The family who manage the motel were really helpful. The first room we were shown had absolutely nowhere to hang any clothes. They gave us another which had a hanging rack on the wall. The room was clean with a new bathroom. There was a fridge and microwave and coffee maker with awful coffee! The laundry came in handy. There was a nice swimming pool. […] Good value for money. Went to reception to check out at 9am but there was no reply to the bell - the family were all asleep after July 4th celebrations! Still, we enjoyed our stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Get what you pay for."
All I can say is you get what you pay for. The owners were very nice and pleasant. You can tell they just bought it and are trying to cleanit up. The airconditioner was would go from fan to air every so often. Not good airconditioners. The rooms and the outside needed to be painted. The pool water was clean but the pool was not new.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good value, nice."
Good, nice pool. Only complaint was hairline cracks in door which let in light.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It's okay as long as you're traveling alone. If you bring your family, go somewhere else, Very nice people run it. The pool was good. It is a little run down though. The rooms need some serious renovations. Wood paneling from the 1960's doesn't cut it. A/C worked, but needs to be updated.Genuine Expedia guest review
ok for a short stay. dont expect too much but value for money.Genuine Expedia guest review
"If you like springs..."
The hotel was easy to find. Not the greatest place in the world. The room was clean, but everything was aged. The mattress was very uncomfortable, my wife and I ended up purchasing pillows at a local store which made the second night better. Didn't use the pool, not many other amenities. Overall a C- rating.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"thank god it was only one night"
the place needs serious renovations. rooms are bare essentials. bathrooms could use a lot more cleaning. no door in the common area of our units. a trash can full of trash in the common area that stunk to high heaven. pool closes very early (6 pm). i felt dirty just being there.Genuine Expedia guest review
Older but clean and maintained. Family friendly with open space and pool. Staff very helpful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
had to ask for hair dryer. it didn't work well. shower presser was terrible and cold. we didn't have any hot water. what's the deal? hotel staff was never around. we only saw them at check in.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Don't go there"
I paid for 2 rooms and when I got there the manager told us that he has no rooms left and he could give us a "cottage" with 2 bedrooms... I contacted Hotels.com in order to find another hotel, but since it was the memorial day weekend there were nothing else available. The cottage was dusty, no air condition in the living room, no hot water (just lukewarm)... […] Don't go there even if it is the last available room in the area.

"Pretty run down, but the service is good"
Reserved this hotel to stay overnight before a fishing trip. They didn't have a room with 2 double beds that I reserved, but gave us 2 rooms with instead at no extra charge. The place is pretty run down overall. The doors hardly shut, everything looks old and beat up. The room was fairly clean. Not the most comfortable bed though. There are probably […] better choices for the money. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice people, shabby room"
No bugs, no cigarette burns in the bedspread, quite clean, no bad odors, and very, very nice staff. The problem was a general shabbiness: transparent curtains on the windows, both with floodlights right outside; tiny flat pillows; stopped-up bathroom sink; incredibly noisy and rickety room fan, TV with volume control set too low. The walls were paper […] thin, which may account for the TV volume. All for a surprisingly steep price. I wish the owners well and hope they can address these problems.

"Carleton Circle Motel E Falmouth,MA"
I had a great time. The only thing wrong was the room phone did not work.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not very clean"
Spiders were on the ceiling, stains on the sheets, bed was falling apart. Shower was nice though.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Never go back!"
Hotel was old, not updated. Windows were dirty. Carpeting old, would only wear socks on it, not bare foot. Lots of weeds.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Carleton Circle Motel"
Our room was outdated in terms of bedding and decor, but was extremely clean. We had a small fridge, a microwave, and a coffee machine. The owners were very helpful with local restaurant information. For the price, it was a good room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"dirty and unaccessible"
it was very dirty despite the helpful receptionist. Also if you are hoping to walk to Falmouth there is no path along the main road to the hotel so you have to get a taxi if you want to be safe.Genuine Expedia guest review
"solo di passaggio"

"Unbearable and over-priced"
07/26/14 Kit M Cary, Illinois
I booked this hotel on short notice (paid in advance) as I would be arriving to the area late and leaving on the ferry early the next morning. I called ahead and told the receptionist I would be in around 1:00 AM: she was friendly and advised me to call the number on the door for check-in. We arrived at 1:30, and a man was in the office but complained that he was about to close because I said I would be in at one. My friend had her dog with us, and I saw the no pets sign, and asked the man if the dog could stay in the car. He said OK, so we slept fitfully for about 4 hours in a dirty room with a moldy shower, with the dog in the car. I was later charged a $100 pet fee and told there was dog hair in the room, but when I asked for pictures of the "evidence" the manager declined to produce them. In all I paid $270 for 6 hours in a dingy motel. All three of us would probably have been more comfortable in the car.
"Good for the night before the ferry"
07/06/14 Julie B Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
My husband and I stayed at the Carleton when we got in too late for the last ferry. It was clean and at a much better price than the neighboring hotels. The hotel staff was also really helpful in checking us in as we got in after 11pm. It's not a place I want to stay for a week, but it is great for a cheap, clean place while waiting to grab a ferry to the Vineyard.
"0 out 5"
06/30/14 AllyGaithersburg Gaithersburg
This motel is very primitive, but also ill-maintained. The front door does not open/or close properly. The amenities are old and loud (air conditioner or bathroom fan). There is a TV set in the room, but power on/off button is just a hole. There are no basic conveniences (hair dryer or clothe hangers). The hotel is located on the main road so it is very loud. The outside light disturbs your sleep and there is no curtain on the front door. Not enough hooks or shelves in the bathroom. The matrass is covered by a plastic cover so turning from side to side at night produces loud noise. The ceiling, walls are dirty. The kitchen floor is dirty. There is a kitchen, but no utensils. Just very poor overall condition. It should not be rented, it needs a major make over.
"Awful awful awful"
09/22/13 777KitCo Holliston, Massachusetts
If we could give zero out of 5 we would. This place is that awful. Of course, we certainly didn't have expectations it would be amazing. We just needed a no frills place to stay and didn't want to stay at other places that required a two-night minimum and the Holiday Inn was nearly $300 a night plus tax. Basically the motel is a series of trailers - at least the ones not part of the main building. The walls in our room were made of fiberboard. The walls in the bathroom were made of (I guess) fiberglass. There was hair on the bathroom wall and on my supposedly clean hand towel (and not mine). The beds are lined with a plastic mattress cover and the bed sheets slide off so that you are exposed to the plastic while you sleep. Needless to say, sleeping in the bed especially for a toss/turn-er is a noisy experience. I will say the person who checked me in was super nice. But when we went in to return the key and I rang the bell, no one came but I could hear them in the back chit-chatting. After a few minutes of waiting while enduring an unbearable curry odor, I just left the key on the desk. All the mentions of the beat up/creepy cars being in the parking lot are also true. It was a scary place and one I hope to never return to.
"One Night Stay"
08/21/13 Hillary W Manchester, New Hampshire
I was trying to locate a place to stay before taking the ferry to the vineyard without breaking the bank. I found this to be cheaper and closer the last place I stayed. If I was staying for a week this would have been fine for me. The room although smelled a bit stale, other than that the bed and the room were clean. The bathroom was pleasant and the shower was awesome. There was Cable TV, Microwave and coffee maker. When I left I noticed a pool so that would be nice to use too. If you are looking for a place that is not overly priced with some amenities then I would recommend this place.
"Great place and great price."
08/17/13 Scott B West Babylon, New York, United States
Had a great time on the Cape. when I travel my family dose not hang out at the hotel, We want a clean place to come back to and relax and sleep. The pool was nice for the kids at the end of the day of sight seeing. The room was clean and just remodeld and the owner was friendly. I would recomend this motel to friends and family.
08/14/13 Touristinmyownstate Brunswick, Maine
My friend had booked this hotel through a Expedia type website...didn't do any research just assumed if it was in Falmouth it would be okay. The parking lot had broken down cars with tape for windows. People appeared to be living in some of the rooms with sheets tacked up for curtains. We were 'upgraded' to a nicer room. You entered through an odd, dirty porch. The room had filthy bedding with 'odd' stains on it. Reluctantly we used the restroom and went for a ride. We ended up seeing a vacancy sign hanging in front of an old, family run place in Woods Hole. We booked a room there. I would have slept in the car before sleeping at the Carleton. Hideous....and the pool others were raving about, had astroturf around it that seemed to highlight the dirty black liner...again, hideous.
"If you compare other Under $100 motels to The Carleton Circle Motel you'll realize Quickly this place is Wonderful!!!"
Stayed on July 9-10, 2013. Don't listen to any of the bad criticisms of this place, for a $87 room this place is GREAT! We were incredibly surprised & More than Pleased (after reading some "iffy" reviews,) to discover The Carleton Circle Motel was Very Clean (pool too!), the girl at the front desk was Really friendly & helpful, the queen size bed comfy and the room over-all just Extremely nice/pleasant and cozy.AC,cable tv, microwave, 4 burner stove, refrigerator & sink, even little counter to eat at with a couple stools. Bathrrom very clean also. No Pets allowed. Location was perfect for Mashpee Common Shopping. I don't know if they've "fixed the place up," so to speak, since those critique's were written or what, but for the Extremely Cheap price of this place we thought it was perfect, and will be back.*
"Great basic service"
07/17/13 Ellie M Grapevine, TX
This is an older property that is functional and clean. Our room was a double (2 full beds). The beds were firm, but comfortable. There was a plastic cover over the mattress that made things a bit warm. There was little furniture in the room apart from the beds, TV, and microwave/refridge. The air conditioning was adequate. The bathroom was small, but sufficient. The staff was pleasant and very helpful. The location was excellent for the price.
"Solid Choice for Late Arrival and Early Exit"
06/23/13 Evywrite New York City, New York
We arrived tired from a day spent at the Vineyard --- Upon entering my smart mouthed teenager whispered --- Bates Motel. My husband hummed the theme from The Shining ---however, the front desk clerk was sweet as pie. Really. Nicely made beds with clean linens greeted us when we entered the room...the bathroom was so clean and white that it literally let out a shine. To our surprise there was a brand new refrigerator, coffee-maker and Haier Micro-wave for our use. When we woke in the morning we were able to utilize the above, get cleaned up and prepped for our trip back to the Vineyard. In addition, we were able to enjoy a nice 12-15 minute ride to Woods Hole, along the way noting the cute little towns and cafe/coffeehouses. My suggestion is that you attempt to call ahead and get a reasonable rate (don't do Hotel.com charge of 120) or see if they give you a discount through triple A. The money you save can be more wisely used for a glorious day on the Cape, or a ride on the ferry.
