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 places and this is the first I really want to return to. Perfect.

Room Tip: All rooms have a balcony overlooking the ocean. Three stories but no elevator.

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 and well equipped with kitchenettes. Rockport is a artsy community, just a few minutes down the road for a nice afternoon to shop or stroll. All season, even with winter snows falling, the surfers gather early morning. All rooms get a picturesque view.

Room Tip: All rooms have a water view. Outside staircase, no elevators.

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 Figured an outdated place was a small price to pay for the amazing view offered out your doors.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 would have an amazing vacation spot. Right now the only thing worth a positive review is the beautiful view. Our bathroom didn't even have a proper shower head, it just sprayed mist. The furnishings are completely dated and our chair had dried food stuck to the side of it. Never again will I let location cloud my judgement. I can't believe this amazing property is so run down.

we visited and stayed at Cape Ann Motor Inn for 4 nights. It has a absolutely beautiful and relaxing location. Everything was clean and the people very friendly and made us feel like we were at home, Even the housecleaning staff was really friendly! If your looking for a super fancy place maybe its not for you. It exceeded all of our expectations and if we are ever in the area again we will be going back!

Room Tip: we had a third floor corner room and it was great!! The views especially in the morning were wonderful!
