The best thing about this hotel is that it is on Long Beach. If you are looking for a smoking friendly, pet friendly, noisy , no elevator, no air conditioned hotel this is your place. There are meager attempts at restricting smoking but it permeates everywhere! Even the ceiling fans barely give a breeze and are not firmly attached to... More

Worst stay ever! We booked their most expensive room at 275.00 per night. When we checked in it was 92 degrees and we of course immediately found out they do not have air conditioning, not even at 275.00 per night! There was NO breeze whatsoever coming off the ocean so we could barely breathe it was so hot in the... More

We were on a fly drive to USA when we found this place, very friendly right on the beach - the view and the fact that you can go from the balcony down some steps straight onto the beach is brilliant. The room was very clean and bed was comfy, small bathroom but everything was there! Wish we could have... More

Just what we were looking for, a place to stay RIGHT ON THE WATER that allowed pets. We could lay on our beds and watch the waves. The beach allowed dogs on it but our big Chocolate Lab was afraid of the water because 'it moved'. She did finally go in a bit and realized it wouldn't attack. The room... More

I desperately needed some beach therapy and decided to book The Cape Ann Motor Inn, where we had stayed years ago when our youngest daughter was 2 or so.It was a perfect place back then. As I knew what to expect, I thought it would be a great place to unwind a bit. The best part of the Inn is... More

Looking at the outside of the property, my husband and I were impressed with the flowers and general upkeep. You can imagine our surprise when we opened the door to our third floor room and found it to be in such rough shape. The room had not been cleaned. There was crumbs on top of the bureau and the bathtub... More

Returned once again to a favorite place. This great motel, located right by the water, sits on the sand just feet from Cape Ann waters. I have stayed here several times and had such good experiences. Very clean, friendly, sit on the deck just outside of your room and watch sunrise or the gentle action of the surf. The gentle... More

I have been coming to this hotel for years and love the oceanfront view! It's dog friendly, has kitchenettes in many rooms and has very reasonable off season rates. Yes it is a little run down but the views make up for it. One aspect to improve upon: the hotel needs to invest in 24 hour on call staff because... More

We frequently plan a Christmas getaway here. The beach is just as beautiful in the winter as the summer. Our dog loves staying here too. On the end of a mile long beach, sunrise is glorious and snowstorms amazing. Try it!

This is an amazing spot right on the water, and perfect for the off season when it is only $85 a night! The Taj Mahal it is not, but all rooms are right on the water, and it is family owned. Nice quiet location at the end of a dead end. Sit on your porch and watch the surf!
