My husband and I stayed here i June 2014 and found everything to be as described. If you like clean and on the water, but like a reasonable price more than fancy surroundings, this is a perfect place to stay. It is a reasonable walk to town center for breakfast or drinks.

Good off season value. Central to so much. Wouldn't choose the efficiency room again. Just a little too small but still kind of cute. Just didn't need the microwave, etc. I will say we could easily hear through the walls. Andrew, the manager on duty, was attentive to our needs. There were actually fireworks over the ocean during our stay!

Our stay at the Hawthorne was magical. The waterfront location and views were outstanding. Our room was perfect, right down to the best Starbucks coffee we've had. Even the decaf was tops. We especially loved sitting on the back patio in the late afternoon when we needed time to rest and recharge before going out to dinner. The owners could... More

Our annual girls trip to Cape Cod to take in all the fall colors was a bit different this year. This year we found a great new place in Chatham. Hawthorne Motel is it! We were greeted by a great, attentive staff and our rooms were more than your average standard. A large picture window that had a stunning view... More

The staff was friendly and accommodating. it was a quick trip to the center of Chatham for restaurants and shopping. We had a thoroughly... More

My daughter was attending the wedding of a friend and wanted us to take care of my 9-month old grandson while they attended the festivities for two days. The bride held aside rooms at The Hawthorne, so we did not know what to expect. Upon arrival, the front desk person was very friendly and when we saw our room we... More

The Hawthorne has a beautiful location with beach access. A lawn with chairs leads to the beach. Rooms are standard fair, clean and comfortable but not fancy. Located in the town of Chatham, the motel is a walk away from shopping and eateries.

Beautiful view of the water day and night. Short walk down the slope to the beach. Ten minute walk into quaint Main Street Chatham for shopping and dining. Cute efficiency room decorated with a nautical theme. Can't think of one thing I would change!

Chatham is without doubt the best town to stay on Cape Cod.The central location and view at the Hawthorne, as other reviewers have said, plus the value for money equation make this an OK place to stay. We are Australians, so we are used to small hotel rooms, but even for us, over a 4 day stay we found the... More

We have been staying at the Hawthorne since 2004 and never been disappointed. Rooms are clean and comfortable and have the most beautiful views possible. Relaxing on the lawn while watching the boats come and go is heaven on earth for us.
