Location is great, views are fantastic, sleep to the sound of ocean waves crashing on the rocks, struesel across the street for breakfast, beds need an update or softer topper. We have stayed there numerous times.

Love it... Park your car, shop, eat and return to your room. So restful and peaceful. A quiet get away. With all the foot traffic on the street you would expect it to be noisy. It is so quiet all you hear is the ocean!

Bearskin Neck Motor Lodge is our "go to" when we head for a weekend in Rockport. The hotel is small and every room sits with a gorgeous view of the water. Wonderful to go to sleep and wake up to the lapping of the waves against the rocks. Situationed on the end of Bearskin Neck, it makes the area so...

This is a tiny little motel right ON THE OCEAN. The view is amazing. It is clean and very well taken care of . It was paradise for us -- we went in Nov and it was cold but you can see the ocean from bed. It is clean, fabulous location right on Bearskin Neck, the famous artist colony in...

Great location and hosts. Comfortable king size bed. Room was practical, clean, but not exactly charming (imo). Well worth the experience to be right on the shore amidst all the cute shops in classic Rockport.

Hello, Thank you for the great review! I am glad you enjoyed your stay with us. Our location is unique and certainly a must for anyone who wants to be centrally located and on the water. We have worked hard to update our rooms with practical amenities while keep the feeling of quintessential New England. We keep our rooms intentionally...

Don't want to rave too much 'cuz I don't want a lot of people to go there! That's one reason we enjoyed it so much, it was peaceful and restful because of being off-season. The flip side of that is that most of the shops are closed, but we didn't go there for the shopping!

Hello, Thank you for the great review. I am glad you enjoyed a relaxing stay during our quieter season. In November, a few shops do remain open during the week, with the majority opening on the weekend. As you said, its the perfect spot to truly escape! Sincerely, Krystle & Eric

Very friendly, accommodating staff. Furnishings were simple but too was very clean. Great location and having on-site parking is a real plus as parking is very difficult in this part of town. Beautiful view from the room and the location is amazing.

Hello, Thank you for taking the time to submit your feedback. I am glad you enjoyed our location and views! Parking can be tough in Rockport, so our location takes the stress out of visiting with parking right in front of the hotel. Sincerely, Krystle & Eric

Fabulous location on Bearskin Neck in off season. Many shops open and enjoyed dinner and a concert within easy walking distance. Ocean crashing on rocks below beautiful shared porch area made for peaceful sleep!

Hello, Thank you for the great review! Shows at the Shalin Liu are truly amazing. I am also glad you were able to enjoy the off season. The weather creates a stormy ocean which is beautiful to watch and relaxing to hear as you fall asleep. Sincerely, Krystle & Eric
