We returned again to this little gem in Gloucester Ma. This time we had room 32 on the third floor. It was very quiet, private and had a great view of the twin lighthouses. ( see picture from our room ) At night you can hear the waves rolling in to lull you to sleep. The front desk was very... More

The entire place is a throw back to the 1970's and could use some updates and renovations - especially the beds and bedding, but you just can't beat the location. It is located right on the beach, you walk out your door and step right onto the sand! Beautiful for morning and evening walks, perfect for families! This is not... More

You are staying here for the view alone, fantastic. We were here early in the year, so very few people on the beach. The hotel is dated, but the staff are very, very nice. If you have trouble with stairs ask for the first floor. And if you see a seagull with a lone sock in his mouth, it's my... More

I kept telling friends, 20 feet from my sliding door is a sandy beach, and I hear the ocean waves all day. A spectacular view, cloudy or sunny, of Twin Lights. If you are a beach bum, this is your spot. I ran a finger over the bathroom window sill and it was clean. I wish they would replace the... More

We first stayed at the Cape Ann in April of 2013 (Boston Marathon weekend) and were quite happy with our stay then, and we again found ourselves with the opportunity to vist the area again this year again in May. When we were then in 13 there was little to no beach surrounding the bay, but we were shocked to... More

I have stayed at hundreds of hotels all over the world and this is the best one I have ever spent time in. The rooms while spartan are clean and comfortable. If you are looking for a place with a room deck overlooking the ocean this is the place you want to be. The staff are very friendly and helpful.... More

I've been going to this nice Inn for 15 years and find it just great! People are friendly, room is clean, best of all from your room there is an ocean inlet view! The lobby is always open and they have coffee, etc to choose. The staff is helpful to suggest places to eat. The parrot there is even friendly.... More

When we booked our room we were a little nervous after reading some of the reviews, however, we fell in love! the view from our room alone would make me go back! The staff was very pleasant and whenever we asked for a place to go for dinner they pointed us in the right direction for a great meal! We... More
