The view from all the rooms in great. The beach is right there, the motel supplies towels, beach toys and chairs. The rooms were clean and they provided service every day. The staff was very pleasant and friendly. I would highly recommend this motel to anyone who is staying in the Chatham area. Rates are reasonable.

My family chose the Hawthorne Motel for a family reunion this past weekend. It was our first time at the Hawthorne and we are sure to be back. The rooms are clean and the views are spectacular.

We have been staying at the Hawthorne since the 60's and can't imagine staying any place else. Located right on the beach and within easy walking distance to downtown Chatham it has served our multi-generational family well.

The view is exceptional. Beach access is as promised. The room appointments were a bit dated and spare. The promised deck was not really a deck, but rather- a walkway. Service was fine. For a holiday place, we feel it was fair and we would go again. The view and location to beach and town is unrivaled.

My wife and I recently spent about a week at the Hawthorne for our anniversary and had a great time. The weather was beautiful. Warm and sunny everyday (I think Gil is in charge of that...lol).
