The All Seasons Motor Inn centrally located on Cape Cod in South Yarmouth has been voted best mid-Cape Motel for the past 14 years by readers of Cape Cod Life magazine. Summer rates between $129 - $165 include both indoor/outdoor pool, free Continental breakfast, Workout Room, Game Room, Sauna Whirlpool.

Also look at Red Jacket Beach Resorts which have four different resorts on the Cape.

Tams...

just so you know, the water is warm enough for swimming and the air temperatures plenty comfortable on the OBX as late as the end of September which is when we are often at the beach for as long as two weeks at a time.

If you want solitude there are plenty of places where you can get that.

The OBX is, IMO, all about the beach, rather than an oh, BTW, there is this beach out there.

If you want the fabulous beaches that the OB are known for and yet you want to do more than just go to the beach, head for the outer Cape where the National Seashore is. We stay in Eastham at the Fort Hill B+B in the park on the ocean side...but the cape is just 3 miles wide in Eastham so you are never very far from the water, either ocean or bay. Although Fort Hill is a protected area with ocean views, walking trails and historic museum, it is not far from beaches, fine dining and cultural attractions. The accommodations are luxurious, full breakfast is delicious and even though you do not have to pay a room tax, the rate may be more than you are looking to spend-- but IMO is well worth it if you want to experience historic cape cod!

Another vote for Cape Cod. There is so much to do - various hikes, a great rail trail for biking that is over 20 miles long, different beaches, small towns for shopping, etc.

We were a few days in the Outer Banks and I think we saw all the attractions other than the beach. They were fun - we climbed the lighthouse in Corolla; visited Ft. Raleigh National Historic Site, climbed the dunes at Jockeys Ridge and I don't think we missed much else.

I agree the water temp is much more agreeable in NC v. MA. But the ocean was so rough. I have swum many times in red flag conditions in Cancun and stayed in the water for an hour. I love the ocean and the waves. The waves in the Outer Banks pounded me senseless and at one point I got quite afraid - for the first time ever for me in the ocean. My mom was talking to someone who said that rough conditions are the norm - I can't speak to that - maybe someone else can address that. My boys LOVED it - but I would never want younger kids near the water there - whereas the Cape Cod Bay beaches are perfect for the little ones.
