3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

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

The best thing about this place is that you walk out the door and there's the ocean. Only other good thing is the cost was cheaper than other places around at $180 a night. That's where it ends. Mattresses were terribly hard, carpet old and stained, no air conditioning, walls are thin, bathroom wallpaper peeling, you can hear the water... More

I like you, read the reviews about the awesome location and outdated rooms and thought to myself how bad can it be, I'm not going there to sit in my room, I'm going to be on the beach. I didn't think the quality of the room was that important until I realized I had just paid $195 a night to... More

Nothing fancy but it is reasonably clean, the mattress is decent , staff are super nice, and free donuts and coffee in am. there is no a/c to be had (tho heat in cooler months). This is all about LOCATION . I gave it 5 stars because it does what it is supposed... More

We recently stayed at the Cape Ann Motor Inn for the first time with our 2 sons. The location is unbelievably amazing and the view is spectacular. It's the only motel we found that sits directly on the beach. You can walk out of your room and into the ocean. Exactly what we wanted…well, not exactly. After booking our stay,... More
