Cape Cod Beachfront Hotels, Motels & Inns
The Best Oceanfront Lodging

With so many affordable Cape Cod beachfront hotels, motels, inns and B&Bs to choose from ... why settle for "drive to the beach" lodging?

Winstead Inn Beach Resort

Cape Cod beachfront hotel


You might think that the nearer you are to the beach, the more you'll pay for your lodging. Generally, that's true. But not always.

In this guide to the best waterfront lodgings on Cape Cod, I'll show you my personal selection of on-the-beach accommodations for a wide range of vacation budgets.

I've included a satellite map for each Cape Cod waterfront hotel, motel and inn, so you can quickly see for yourself just how close to the water you'll be.
