Falmouth Tides Motel

267 Clinton Ave., Falmouth | 508.548.3126 | FalmouthTides.com

Situated on a peninsula between Vineyard Sound and Falmouth Harbor, the recently renovated Falmouth Tides is for travelers seeking the quintessential New England coastal getaway.

Private beach? Check. Watersports equipment and bikes? Check. Proximity to popular waterfront dining? Check.

Created for couples, families and groups (and their pets), the 29 rooms and suites feature Nespresso coffeemakers, free wifi, deluxe bath products, air conditioning, kitchenettes and private balconies or patios.

On the white sand beach just outside the door, guests find complimentary beach chairs for sunbathing, cornhole, paddleboards and beach volleyball. Hop on one of the bikes and pedal off into town for dinner. Then end the day on the hotel’s private beach in an Adirondack chair, enjoying a glass of wine and watching the sunset.

Guests looking for activities beyond the beach can hop on the Island Queen (another Best of the Upper Cape #1 choice) for a short 35-minute sail to Oak Bluffs on Martha’s Vineyard. Also close by are fishing and sailing charters, golf courses, wineries, Cape League baseball and much more. The hotel’s front desk can help with recommendations for things to do and assistance with making arrangements.

“Second time staying here … and let me tell you, just when you think it couldn’t get any better… it does,” said one 2023 reviewer. “The rooms are impeccable. Honestly, you feel like you’re the first person to ever sleep in the room… The entire staff makes you feel so welcomed. The view from your room, there’s nothing like it. Only bad thing is that you can’t stay forever.”
