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...

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!!

The people who work here are very pleasant. Our room was clean, if somewhat plain, but who cares? It was comfortable, the view is spectacular. So pleasant to fall asleep to the sounds of the surf, and wake up to the same! I woke up hours before my husband, and enjoyed going downstairs for coffee--same beautiful view.They have an old...

My boyfriend and I arrived without a reservation, and were thrilled to discover such a beautiful and affordable accommodation. Right on the beach, we watched the full moon rise over the ocean and listened to the tides turn as we drifted to sleep. All those who we met there were friendly and charismatic. The parrot's mama gave us an early...

My husband and I took a few days to discover Gloucester, Ma. and found a motel that was not only pet friendly, but directly on the ocean! We had a room on the second floor and in hindsight would have been better on the first. Great restaurants, walking tours with dogs, and museums in Gloucester. Lovely town.

Another wonderful 5 days in Gloucester at our favorite little motel. Our dog loves the mile long beach and the staff is so helpful and friendly. Try out the beach in the winter! Seashells and sea glass are treasures to be found!
