My husband and I took a few days to discover Gloucester, Ma. and found a motel that was not only pet friendly, but directly on the ocean! We had a room on the second floor and in hindsight would have been better on the first. Great restaurants, walking tours with dogs, and museums in Gloucester. Lovely town.

Another wonderful 5 days in Gloucester at our favorite little motel. Our dog loves the mile long beach and the staff is so helpful and friendly. Try out the beach in the winter! Seashells and sea glass are treasures to be found!

This Inn has been my vacation spot for 20 years - the staff is wonderful and it is right on a beautiful beach on a dead-end street so that all you hear is the ocean and birds. The handy kitchenettes are a practical option and there is no need for air conditioning since there are ceiling fans and ocean breezes... More

My wife and I have been vacationing at the Cape Ann Motor Inn since 1984, before we were married. We found it accidentally, that first trip, but it was full. As we stood in the office asking about rooms, prices, etc.we could not help but notice the incredible view; the Lighthouses. We came back 6 moths later, this time with... More

Yes, the beach is there, which is lovely. The staff was impatient, unwelcoming and impolite. The bathroom was dirty, the beds uncomfortable and the pillows smelled unclean. My family recently returned on a month long trip across the country and stayed in many hotels, none of which we could say that we'd never stay in again. I don't care what... More

Another wonderful family vacation at the Cape Ann Motor Inn. We've been coming on and off for forty years. Located right on Long Beach, with glorious views of two lighthouses, it's hard to leave. The rooms are clean, and the people are great. Minutes away from the art galleries in Rockport and the whale watches in Gloucester. What's not to... More

We recently stayed at "our happy place" on the ocean...The Cape Ann Motor Inn. This was our 5th visit. We try to get there at least once per summer since happening upon this glorious place 5 years ago. The view is simply astounding, no matter which room we have had, as every one overlooks the beach and the ocean. No... More

You can see my previous reviews for more detail, but everything holds: you stay here for the beach, the location cannot be beat. The hotel itself is stuck in time (like 1970). Location gets 5 stars, hotel gets 2 stars. The staff are friendly and housekeeping is helpful and understanding. Stay on the third floor for the best view. Chill... More

We just got back from a trip to Salem and weren't planning on staying here. We were supposed to go back home but then took a ride of the coast and found Long Beach. We decided to see if there was a room available for the next night (Thursday) and there was so we booked a kitchenette room on the... More
