We have been coming for many years to this location. All of the rooms open out on the water side. The rooms are basic but clean. Some rooms with efficiencies. Nothing fancy, a little dated but clean and the location can not be beat! Right on a Long Beach. Hotel provides chairs for guest outside the rooms on the small...

Right on Long Beach. Fantastic amazing views. Beautiful sunrises! Loved the sounds of the waves and the gulls. Very friendly staff. BUT no elevator (3 floors for rooms but 4 down to beach) and no air conditioning-- serious drawbacks. Old family-style motel. Rooms very clean. Pet friendly. Great for beach for families with little kids.

If you are looking for opulence, look elsewhere. If you are interested in a friendly, homey, family oriented place without all that phoney beach glitz....this has the best location directly on the beach money can buy. Simple, clean room, friendly folks. Picture is from our hotel room porch. All rooms are oceanfront.

Great family friendly spot. Don't worry about your sandy feet and beach toys. If you want fancy, this isn't for you. But if you want to relax at a beautiful beach during the day and sleep to the sound of the waves at night, you've found the perfect spot. This is our 21st year and will be back again.

My grandson & I stayed here and we thoroughly enjoyed it! The room was spacious & clean. The views were fabulous! Right out our sliding glass door we stood out on the deck & enjoyed looking right onto the beach & out into the ocean. In full clear view was Thatcher Island with it's 2 lighthouses. Watching the sun rise...

We recently spent 2 nights in this comfortable old Inn. Our room on the 2nd floor had such amazing views of the beach,surfers and the water with two lighthouses on an island directly on front. The fridge in the room was great and we were able to eat our lunch and breakfast on the balcony while enjoying the view. It...

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.

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...
