The rooms are old and in need of renovations. The floors were not level, the furniture tilted back and when you placed items on the dresser or desk they would roll to the back. It was also very noisy. Did not enjoy our stay!

My cousin just had her wedding at the Cape Ann Marina. The place was clean, comfortable and in a great location. The restaurants on side we great; good selection and reasonably priced. The wedding was in a tent right outside the hotel. They did a great job. I would defiantly recommend visiting the resort. Nice little getaway.

There's nothing better than opening your door to a deck that looks out onto a marina. Although we were here in June, the weather was bad and the outdoor bars were not open but we very much enjoyed our peaceful stay here. We will stay again.

The 3 nights we stayed were amazing, I proposed to my girlfriend on the balcony overlooking the marina. Which is a beautiful view, the rooms were very nice and for being a busy place we did not hear a peep from anyone. The restaurant was small and quaint and the food was amazing. I would highly recommend eating the lobster... More

First the good stuff: This is on the ocean and the rooms all have small decks. Very nice. The staff is the friendliest and most helpful I've ever encountered. The restaurant is good and the fish was cooked to perfection. The haddock was superb. Nice swimming pool. Now the drawback that gave it a 3 star instead of 4. On... More

This place is not a fancy resort but a comfortable friendly place with a water view that you can enjoy and really nice people running it. We arrived VERY late and they were so kind and helpful. Clean, comfortable, reasonable price, close to everything - I would come back here and recommend this place to all my family and friends.

When my husband and I got there...the place looked very nice..had a pool and hot tub and a very nice restaurant attached. I asked for a room on the 3rd floor and farthest from the bar area. They gave us a room 306. The room was very nice (little outdated) but clean, When we got into bed the bottom sheet... More

Reservations were lost. Electronic door keys failed to work three times in three days, Door connecting adjoining rooms had to be unlocked and forced open. Lots of noise from adjacent rooms and people moving through the halls. Staff responded well to problem areas.

We only went to the restaurant here. We each had a beer and shared the bowl of calm chowder. The chowder was terrific. Our waiter was great and we enjoyed our quick stop. They also have a bar area set up beside the indoor pool. They have a large parking lot, the restaurant was very clean and the bathrooms were... More

This large complex is located on an inlet overlooking a yacht basin. The rooms are spacious, clean yet a bit dated. The walls are thin in that you can hear people talking in surrounding rooms and listen to what sounds like every door close in the building. The floors are very squeaky with every foot step from the room above... More
