After reading so many reviews about this wonderful gem of a hotel we were excited to check it out. His sister had been there many years ago and suggested a stay. We were not disappointed. Simple but clean and well appointed. The staff was friendly and helpful. Their beach is part of Long Beach, absolutely gorgeous. We have been many...

If you are looking for something not fancy, on the beach that is super friendly and has no problem accommodating dogs, this is it! This is our third off-season trip to take our dogs and just walk the beach and eat seafood. We don't care about the tourist thing so this is perfect

The Cape Ann Motor Inn sits directly on a sandy beach cove. It is pet friendly and so are the beach areas in the off season months. So its the perfect spot to relax and unwind with your furry best friend. Bring the family too...its that kind of homey atmosphere that our family loves. Nothing fancy or elaborate, but clean...

We booked this hotel strictly because of the beach location. Figured an outdated place was a small price to pay for the amazing view offered out your doors. Wrong! This place is in serious need of a complete renovation. I mean, come on! This is prime location! You couldn't ask for better. Put some money back into it and you...

Loved this place!!. People were very nice and it was very clean. Loved the fact that it sits directly on the sand of Long beach. The sound and views of the water and sunrises were fabulous. Hope to return for our honeymoon!!

Step our of your hotel room and you are right on a beautiful private beach that is enjoyed from Gloucester to Rockport with a small island smack dab in the middle. Surfers enjoy the break at mid-beach. Great for a long walk or jogging. THis is not a frilly or famous or "gala" hotel. It is a very, very friendly...

Many times, when I read somebody's bad review, I think,"There are a lot of people that are too hard to please." If you read any of my other reviews you will see that I've never given a bad one. That said, this place was just barely adequate. On the positive side, it was clean and on a beautiful beach. We...

Thank you for your review, We had thought the issue had been corrected when maintenance had been to your room and was told the problem was corrected. We have discovered the issue with the shower and have addressed it. I'm sorry you didn't feel our off season standard rate of $125 for four guests was not appropriate as well. Certainly...

We stayed here recently, sadly for a funeral in Gloucester. It was a great experience, motel has a great view of seaside. Nice area, close to center of town, and resturants. Rooms very clean, and comfortable. The owner, Brad is very personable, and very willing to help in anyway. The place should be added to your bucket list!!
