I went with a friend who's stayed many times over the years. It was my first visit. Gloucester can be a crazy tourist place in the summer, but this Inn is tucked away in a residential neighborhood and very peaceful. There is a large cove that provides a tranquil environment and a big beach perfect for children. A sandwich shop... More

Almost like going to Camp this hotel is anything but 4 Star. But what it lacks in amenities it makes up in location and some charm. Most of all these kitchenettes are literally on the beach and great prices. So bring your own Foo-foo stuff a beach towel good book and enjoy the stunning view. Enjoy!

We stayed at Cape Ann anticipating a wonderful end to an excellent trip around New England. Sadly the only good thing about this inn is the beautiful view from the rooms. The rooms are dated and grimy - to the point of needing to wash the crockery before we could even make a hot drink. The walkway/verandah was in need... More

Right on the beach, clean and pets were welcomed. This review would have had a higher rating if the women answering the phone and at the front desk (Michelle ?) Had a better attitude. She was rude, abrupt and never said a word as we got coffee. The rest of the staff was very friendly. We will go back again... More

Again this year and loved it. Always a pleasure. The staff remembers you from year to year. Perfect beach location. View of beach from every room. Listening to the waves at night put you right to sleep.

We stayed two nights at the Cape Ann motor Inn. What a love!y view of Long Beach. Can't beat this view. You are right on the water. Hotel offers great coffee and a donut in the ams!! Rooms are small with two queen beds. Hotel management needs to purchase better towels for the petite bathroom. Or bring your own!!!

Similar to the other reviews. It gets about 0 stars for everything except that the location is a 5 star, so averages out to the 1 star. The real clue here, which I overlooked, was that on short notice in high season, everything was booked - except this place. You gotta suspect something.... The real issue is the price. The... More

LOOK, this place is NOT GLAMOROUS. At all. But it's an affordable hotel ON A BEAUTIFUL BEACH. Enough said. Sure I wish they'd put some of our money into capital improvements. I do. The beds are hard. The carpets is old. Pretty much everything about the place reminds you of a hotel from many, many decades ago. But, BEACH! It's... More
