Whoever said that this hotel wasn't worth it, doesn't know it like I do.
At the beginning of my 5th grade year, our school went on strike. With nothing to do, and 6 kids to keep entertained for a couple of weeks, my mother decided that she wanted to take us so we could go Whale Watching. We're from Pennsylvania, so the closest place is the Jersey Shore - we have a place in Avalon as well. But Jersey isn't the place to go for Whale Watching, especially at that time of the year. So she decided she wanted to take us to Massachusetts. She had stayed at a Bed and Breakfast when she had gone with a friend, but that bed and breakfast didn't exist anymore. When she called the commerce center and asked where they recommended, The Shoreline Motel was one of the top rated places on their list of lodgings.
My parents called, and booked a stay for about two weeks. Those two weeks is when I fell in love with this place. Every summer after, we went back - for about 7 years. It was an 11 hour car ride, but it was worth every minute. We would stay for two weeks, and then go home, just as we had the years before. August was always the best time to go up, because the crowds weren't as huge, and the weather was PERFECT.
The Shoreline motels staff became like a second family to me. They were always so kind, and they knew each of us by name. Eventually, thats what it was like for the entire community in Provincetown. Many of the shop owners knew us by name when we would return, and it was such a loving community.
The Shoreline itself was set in the perfect place. You could bike into town, which wasn't that far, or you could walk to the grocery store, which was only just up the hill and around the curve. There was a convenience mart just down Route 6 in the opposite direction from town as well. There was also a free public library on Route 6 as well, which I visited quiet a few times. And when you would step out of your room, you were literally right on the beach. The dunes were beautiful, and the water was great. During low tide, it was always fun to walk to the curve in the beach and head out to the Sand Bar to catch hermit crabs.
The service at the Shoreline was also superb. If we needed anything, it was never too much to ask.
And the people who would stay there were always kind - usually, it was our rooms (we rented two) that had all the kids come to them, because of all the kids in or family. We made so many lasting friendships because of this hotel.
Cleanliness was never a problem for us also. The bathrooms were always clean, and the cleaning staff always vaccumed each day. Never once did I have a problem with mold, as someone else mentioned - I'm highly allergic to it, and my stay there was allergy free. The linens were fresh, and the pillows were comfortable.
And if this wasn't a value, would a family of 8 return for two weeks or more every summer? I highly doubt it ;)
Overall, this is one of my favorite places on the planet. I do believe that they sold the building to turn into condominiums, but I'm not sure if it ever went through. As of 2010, we didn't go, only because of health problems with my father - they are continuing this year. But hopefully next year, we will be able to return. And regardless of whether or not the Shoreline is still running, the area is beautiful in itself.
But I will never forget the memories I made there. And I will always hold the Shoreline motel as one of the best places to be on vacation. It was, after all, like a second home to me.
Mold on the ceilings, pillows are at least 5 years old, stay away. If you need pictures I have them. The view is great, I sleeped outside the first of two nights, it was more appealing. I heard they are will be selling and turning into condo's at the end of this season.
It was a little rocky at first reserving 2 rooms for one night only in prime time season, but the owner, Jane was very accomodating and helped me plan a great weekend. The hotel is in a great location, 10 minutes from the center of town and easily accessible. The rooms were spacious and overlooking the ocean on one side, and the dunes on another. The suite was huge and we were able to host a little party of 7 girls with plenty of room before heading out on the town. The efficieny room was also pretty big but had a strange odor. Definitely a place to visit again!
I have been staying at the Shoreline Motel for over 20 years and have always been one hundred percent satisfied. The Owners Jane and Ralph have treated myself and my family like we were their own.
The view is spectacular and the service never disapoints me. The rooms are always very clean and neat, the housekeeping staff always goes above and beyond to make sure we are completely satisfied.
I will always be going back there.
We particularly liked the location. It overlooks the Cape and is completely beachfront - you can hear the waves gently lapping the shore.
Our room was clean, with 2 double beds and nice firm mattresses. All sheets and linen were clean. Staff was friendly and polite. All doors fitted properly -good secure locks.
We can't wait to get back to this family owned and managed resort!
Shoreline motel is what beautiful Cape Cod is all about. Breathtaking views,spectacular beach, large, clean well appointed comfortable rooms. The housekeeping staff are sweet women that will insure that your room is perfect and well maintained.We have stayed in several locations at the cape over the years, and no place tops our treasure at the Shoreline.True Cape Cod hospitality and charm, thats why we contiue to back for more, year after year.
The owners, Jane & Ralph Andrews are very in tune with the needs of tourists in Cape Cod. The views are sensational, no matter which room, efficiency, or suite that that you have! My husband & I do not get to vacation in Cape Cod every year, but we tavel off season, and love staying at the Shorline!
We are always treated like family & feel like we have extended family there too!
We have been going to the Shoreline Motel in N. Truro for many many years. This is by far the best motel on the Outer Cape. From our room we have views of both the Bay and Pilgram Lake. Therefore we can see the sunrise and sunset. Our room is always freshly painted white and very clean. The owner and staff make us feel at home every year. There is a deck with views of Provencetown. They have there own private beach and is also only minutes from the spectacular ocean beaches and bike trails.
The Shoreline is a great place to stay. Always consistant year after year. Never disappointed.
I have come to the Cape for years, and finding the Shoreline Motel this year was a treasure. I can't wait to go back. My room was fabulous, with ocean breezes every night and a balcony with a stunning view of Provincetown Harbor. Shoreline has its own private, lovely sandy beach. The room was spotless, and the staff was friendly and accommodating, both at the front desk and the chambermaids. I loved having a wonderful breakfast/lunch counter and a kitchen. The room was bright and airy and I felt at home at once.
