We had a very quiet king kitchenette room with an excellent view. All staff are very friendly. They offer beach chairs, towels, and toys that you can use as well as the typical ice and soda machine out front. Really nice area (sit out back with your coffee in the morning and watch the seals) and my favorite place I've... More

The Hawthorne is very clean and quiet with basic rooms and some beautiful views. The owners are also the managers and you can tell they take pride in their hotel. The grounds, wirh their hydrangeas, and other flowers are simply lovely. The motel is right next door to the Chatham Bars Inn at half the price. Several times we walked... More

We arrived at the Hawthorn on August 11th having booked our deluxe efficiency ocean view room in March, paid a deposit and confirmed both by email and telephone. The motel came recommended. Having travelled from UK we were very much looking forward to a relaxing stay in the specific room we had booked. However on our arrival we were informed... More

My family and I had a wonderful experience at the Hawthorne Motel in Chatham. It was charming and located on a wonderful seaside setting on Cape Cod. We truly enjoyed our stay and plan to return next year. Lots of activities in the area for the whole family and near some great golf courses too. We had a nice clean... More

I give the motel a 3, mostly for the fabulous lawn leading to the beach. I give a 5 to the management . We has a couple of issues while we were there and the management was professional and very helpful. They made the stay a 5!

Stayed two nights at this hotel...had a wedding next door at the Chatham Bars Inn. This place was better AND lots cheaper. Everyone I spoke to about the CBI disliked it, despite the CBI being more than double the cost. Everyone I knew who stayed at the Hawthorne Motel loved it. However it does not have a pool, if you...

We stayed at the Hawthorne during a wedding which was held next door at the Chatham Bars Inn. After talking with several guests of the other hotel, we decided we did better than they did! The high-season prices were lower, we had a view of the water and many seals, and our room was clean and comfortable. We had a... More

We just came back from The Hawthorne and already thinking of my next trip there. Beautiful location on the beach with gorgeous views of the water. Definitely book an oceanview room - worth the extra money to see that view. Lounge chairs are located right outside your room so sitting there every morning drinking my coffee was a luxury for...

We had a wonderful experience at The Hawthorne. The views are amazing and it's a quick walk to Main St. Kellee and Mike were absolutely wonderful (and so sweet) and made great recommendations on where to go. Take advantage of being next to Chatham Bars Inn and have lunch or drinks there. The Hawthorne is the perfect place to stay... More
