We stayed in a corner room on the second floor overlooking the parking lot. I originally though being over the parking lot might bother me but the resort is very quiet there wasn't a lot of traffic coming and going. We had an unobstructed view of the ocean from 2 directions. If you like to hang out in front of... More

We couldn't have asked for a better location in Chatham. The price was right and the management was attentive and kind. It's not a fancy hotel, but since we were never in our rooms except to sleep, it was perfect!

Let me start off by saying that we have owned a home on the Cape since the early 1990's. That sold in July so we are suddenly faced with having to find a hotel. Well, for the money Hawthorne Motel on Shore road is a GEM!!! You couldn't ask for a better location. We spend a lot of our time... More

This was our third trip to the Hawthorne Motel in Chatham. The Motel is a very quiet in a friendly atmosphere. The majority of the patrons are friendly and the managers are outstanding in their attempts to accommodate. The motel is very clean and the grounds are kept well manicured. The property sits right on the water with a private... More

The motel is located on the same beach as the Chatham Bars Inn. You are feet away from the beach and a short walk away from town. They provide towels, beach chairs, lounges and umbrellas. My group arrive early in the day and we were greeted by Scott and Stephanie who let us use the staff bathroom to change into... More

This location is stunning! Easy access to town and private beach.Stayed in a Deluxe hotel room. Pretty expensive but small, with a dirty carpet and an impossible to maneuver bathroom. Not a working shelf in sight. Spotted a cockroach one morning near the tub. I'd stay again because of the location but wished the place were a bit more comfortable.

Let me start by saying that the motel is clean, comfortable and in an outstanding location. Beach is a bonus and the fact that you can walk 100 yards and pretend to be a guest at Chatham Bars is great. It is also an easy walk to downtown. No complaints whatsoever about my overall experience. For $200 a night I... More

Our room was an oceanfront king, absolutely spotless. Scott and Stephanie greeted us like we were family. Very quiet, beautiful views, within walking distance to Chatham Center. The hotel is perfect, staff is excellent..... Not much more to say, and I'm a Marriott " Lifetime Platinum" so I stay at lots of properties..... Thanks Vinnie and Lynne and we will... More

We spent a few days enjoying the town of Chatham and the Cape while staying at the Hawthorne. The location is ideal, within walking distance of downtown Chatham with its shops and restaurants, and with its wonderful beach at the bottom of a sloping lawn. The Hawthorne is right next to Chatham Bars, the very pricy inn, and the beach... More

We have been going to the Hawthorne for a number of years, last year with the change of management, we were hesitant going back. Our friends convinced us we had to and we are extremely happy that we did. The new management is fantastic, the place looks great and the staff was incredible. We were so happy we booked next...
