My husband and I are truly baffled by the overwhelming positive reviews of this hotel. To say we were dreadfully disappointed is an understatement. We arrived to be "greeted" by a very disinterested woman (Stephanie) who did not bother to look up and grunted out how much we owed, where our room was located and where to park. The air...

We had a very nice time at our stay at the Hawthorne. We were traveling with an 8 month old baby, and I called ahead of time and they recommended which rooms would be better -- thicker walls so we would be less likely to bother the neighbors and vice versa. It is a beautiful spot with a path to...

Thoroughly enjoyed our visit at the Hawthorne Motel and in Chattam. The motel is located steps away from the beach and within walking distance of the town. The staff was friendly and welcoming. The town is quaint and has a lot to offer from shopping to unique restaurants, as well as the wildlife refuge. Incredible and I can not wait...

We have been to the Hawthorne many times and every visit is wonderful. We have made reservations a year in advance and called 1 week prior and either way it works, obviously the miser time you have the more room options you have. The beach is beautiful and right out the door. For a private beach they could clean it...

The Hawthorne Motel is located only a few yards from a beautiful private beach. Our room was impeccably clean! My favorite part of our stay was the awesome staff. Stephanie, Scott, Tamara and Tina were so friendly and helpful - loved them all. It was our first time in Cape Cod and we'll never stay anywhere else. Our friends were...

We keep going back and each time the Hawthorne Motel gets better and better. It's like going home. Scott and Stephanie couldn't be more welcoming. If you need something they will go out of their way to get it. And, THE VIEW! You can't beat it. We are booked for next year - can't wait.

we were in town for a wedding and elected to NOT stay at the same hotel as the rest of the family, but stayed here instead, and what a great out of the way and quiet. Nice room, beachside place and there was a colony of seals on a sand bar to watch

Lovely location right on a pretty little beach and walking distance to town. We opted for a "no-view" room since we knew we would be there much. Room was updated and very comfortable for the three of us. Nice mini fridge in the room as well. Very friendly staff. Would definitely stay here again if we return to Chatham!

We went to Cape Cod for a four day getaway and wanted some place where we could touch the sea. The Hawthorne Motel offered everything we were looking for, it was clean and comfortable and we watched the sunrise over the ocean every morning. Located in Chatham it is very central to all the activities we had planned and at...

This was my first time to the Cape. Came for a friend's wedding - the reception was at the Chatham Bars Inn, which is right next door, so this was the perfect location. I needed to print out my speech and the sweet couple that works there were able to help me! So friendly and welcoming. Rooms are spacious. Beach...
