          Sweet old fashioned motel rooms that have been updated. The norm was near town. The staff was polite & helpful. Our room had a little porch, cute furnishings & frig. The exterior was nice with a pool, grill. The motel was near shopping & restaurants.

          The Sea Lion is not fancy, but it is clean, easy and in a great location. The motel is convenient to the best beach on Cape Ann -- Good Harbor. The price was right for a quick business trip to Gloucester.

          Nice, average motel. The best feature is location: 3min drive to the beach or 15min walk on main roads to the beach. Also, the front desk gave us a 10$ off parking voucher for surrounding beaches. Big comfortable pool. The ocean isn't really visible from...More
