We stayed 3 night. The Front desk Staff are wonderful, my kids loved the talking bird. Nice clean rooms with an ocean view that is beautiful. The staff was very helpful on things in the area to do and places to eat.

This place is right on the beach in Gloucester. All rooms have an nice ocean view and shared balcony (motel style). It was very nice to sit and watch/hear the ocean from the room. Nice off- season price, as well. The room is dated but clean. The "continental" breakfast is a downer - pre-packaged, thawed danish with coffee and oj....

We stayed at the Cape Ann for 3 nights in January. It's a lovely, welcoming place. With our morning coffee and pastries we enjoyed "chatting" with Bert the parrot (she says Hello to everyone who opens the door!). A Nor'Easter came through during our stay and we were mesmerized, watching the stormy seas from our comfortable room. it's also a...

Many years ago we stayed here when our kids were younger and had many great visits. When our son's wedding was planned in Gloucester we knew right away this was where we wanted to stay. The room was small and not updated but that wasn't important to us. We were there to sleep and get ready for the rehearsal and...

We spent 3 days in September here with our daughter and Grandson. They stayed in the efficiency room next to ours. To walk down to the beach with it's gentle waves and expansive area was a child's dream come true.

Had three nights in an efficiency room which had a full frig, stove, sink and basic dishes and utensils and microwave oven. We had adjoining rooms also so we were able to open the doors between our rooms and had a big pizza party with a place for the leftovers and drinks (the frig). It was wonderful to be on...

That was such a nice way to start...

The rooms were hot due to the time of year, rooms needs new ceiling fans, however, the staff was more than accommodating in making our visit the best it can be. I would go back absolutely. The Parrot in the Office Bert (Roberta) was the best too.

This is not a place to stay if you want quiet or updated. The staff if fine the beach location is great. The decks are all common walk ways so people are constantly walking by your room. No a/c and leaving the slider open with so many people wasnt really comfortable. Old beds lots of noise. Exspensive
