Cape Cod beach hotels offer great locations on some of the best beaches in the country. Also, since there are options to fit a wide range of budgets, visitors don't have to spend a ton just to stay near the water. Cape Cod beachfront lodging, as you might suspect, is in especially high demand in the summer, with July and August being the months when open rooms are most difficult to come by. Summer visitors will want to book as far in advance as possible.
The Cape Cod luxury hotels are quite numerous, and some of the very best boast their own private strips of sand. Such is the case with the Chatham Bars Inn. A mix of guest units, a quarter-mile private beach, and free shuttles to pristine Outer Beach in the Cape Cod National Seashore are just some of the perks, and guests can pamper themselves to no end at the onsite spa. Add in the four restaurants and the delightful "Intimate Dining" options, and it becomes even clearer that this is a Cape Cod retreat par excellence. 297 Shore Road in Chatham is the Chatham Bars address.
Many Cape Cod hotels offer guestrooms to fit a range of tastes and budgets. Such is the case with the Riviera Beach Resort (pictured), which can be found right on the beach at 327 South Shore Drive in South Yarmouth. The waters of Nantucket Sound are usually calm and relatively warm during the summer season, and this helps to make this resort an especially good Cape Cod beachfront lodging for families with younger kids. The excellent Kids Klub with its activity options also encourages families with children to give this resort a look, and adults might appreciate the spa, the tennis courts, and the outdoor patio. Well-priced and well-situated, the Riviera Beach Resort is understandably popular with Cape Cod visitors. Its sister property, the nearby Blue Rock Resort, is also worth considering, partly because of its golf course, which Riviera Beach Resorts are welcome to play.
For those who wish to stay on a beach in the Provincetown area, there is the Sandbars Inn. Found just a few minutes from downtown Provincetown at 570 Shore Road in North Truro, this sixteen-unit lodging establishment sits on a fine strip of sand that is only accessible by guests. In the standard guest units, kitchenettes, cable TV, DVD players, heating, and air conditioning figure among the amenity highlights. There are also units with full kitchens, and the more deluxe units are also more prone to feature a flat screen TV. As for the beach, it is family-friendly and features picnic tables and Adirondack chairs for guests to enjoy.
Many, if not most, of the Cape Cod beachfront lodging establishments can be good places for families to stay at. This is certainly the case with any number of vacation rental properties, including the Seaside Inn. Nearly every room at this delightful Cape Cod motel has ocean views, and some boast convenient kitchenettes as well. There are several room categories to select from, so guests can choose according to budget and taste. All feature private bathrooms, air conditioning, heating, coffee makers, cable TV, and hair dryers, and while none are overly luxurious, clean and comfortable quarters can be expected.
Other Cape Cod beach hotels that visitors might include on their lists of prospective places to stay are the Lighthouse Inn at 1 Lighthouse Inn Road in West Dennis and the Corsair and Cross Rip Oceanfront Resort at 41 Chase Avenue in Dennisport. Both are also highly rated and can meet the needs of many a beach enthusiast. If these and all of the other beachfront hotels on the island are full, there are plenty of great vacation rental properties to consider, and regardless of where you end up staying in the end, a good beach won't be very far away.
