This was a suggestion from the Chamber of Commerce.. Upon arrival, the owner found it necessary to argue with me about the rate of $99.00 which was given that day from the Captain's Lodge to C of C. She wanted to charge me $119.00..,the room was not even worth $25.00/night!! She commented on the rate of $99.00 and said, that... More

We should have turned around immediately after seeing the place but we were in town for a wedding. And to give you some perspective, my husband and I are not squeamish, we have hiked backcountry, stayed in many a hostel and occasionally booked a seedy hotel to stay near an airport. This place is the worst place we have ever... More

I like the ole style motor lodges from the 30s to the 50s. This is one of those. Simple accommodations provided. Just the basics at a competitive price for all the other hotels in this area. What is fascinating about this place is the height of the ceilings. A captains motor Inn soaring high. Nice place, pleasant people, simple and... More

We were hankering for a last-minute visit to the ocean. Duh, in mid-August the North Shore of Massachusetts is so booked up, but we were desperate. We took a chance for one night, a leap of faith, and got burned at the Captains Lodge Motel in Gloucester..... It's old, raggedy, falling apart. We woke up to a bath sink covered... More

My mom and I booked this online, pics looked okay......not so much in person! The minute we pulled in our jaws dropped. It looked like dirty windowless shacks were lined up next to one another, the windows to the office were crusted with dirt. It looked like a "pay by the hour" hotel, if you know what I mean. We...

Last minute Friday booking for a Saturday in July with a dog. I knew I had to take what I could get - a smoking room with 2 double beds. Gotta say I was a little nervous because my room was in the way back and I had to cross the driveway from the parking area. As a woman by... More

I wanted a weekend place to relax in Cape Ann for my college student and I. What we got was the worst hotel I have stayed at in my entire life! Upon check in, the manager was delightful - but it went downhill from there. The carpets, furniture, lighting, TV and bed spread are easily 20 years past their life... More

What a dump!! The bathroom door had holes in it as did the bedspread. It smelled of disinfectant. The owner/manager acted as if it was a big deal to give us an extra towel for the pool. The pool furniture was all broken and torn. We expected breakfast but got Dunkin Donuts and coffee. It was dreary and poorly lit.

I have stayed here three times this summer for a weekend get away and have enjoyed myself each time. Komal, the owner, has been wonderful and has always accomodated our request for a non- smoking room. The pool is clean and the rooms are spacious. We used to stay down the street at The Vista, but prefer to stay here... More
