The marina resort is not up to resort standards but is actually a marina with a hotel and restaurant good place to stop by boat in the summer to have a drink or some food on the outside deck ,The winter has a small inside restaurant on the water and an inside bar with a pool nothing special

Nice view. Should be very nice considering location but the rooms need updating. The Mile Marker One restaurant was very good for breakfast with a very kind staff. Waitress Cindy served great coffee and kept it warm on a cold day.

A slew of us stayed here after a wedding. The hotel is more like a motel but does have interior hallways. The key point of the place is the location; most rooms (if not all) face the harbor and higher rooms have a better view but the trade off is there is no elevator. If staying in the warmer months...

It is located right on the water. Old building but great staff. It has an indoor pool with a bar. Great. Food and drinks at Mile Marker are good. You have to drive down the street and by the water to get to town. Worth it.

We stayed one night on our way from the White Mountains, NH going to Boston. The resort is very scenic and on the east side outside of Gloucester. They have 2 great bars and a restaurant. The rooms are comfy and clean - and we got our laundry done. At the poolside bar we had the best ahi tuna and... More

Loved this hotel. Not fancy but had everything we needed. I was afraid it would be noisy after reading some of the reviews but we didn't have any issues. Not touristy at all, a great taste of life in Gloucester.

I stayed at Cape Ann Marina for a month. Found the marina to be a very nice place. The staff and people around the marina were very nice and helpful. Dockage was reasonably priced and fuel was priced very well. The Mile Marker restaurant was a nice casual setting and a good place for a quick meal or an evening... More

The hotel rooms themselves are nice. Very comfortable bed. Unfortunately the walls are paper thin, meaning you hear everything your neighbors do. The showers from other rooms cause the pipes to screech, waking you up. The hotel is also attached to a bar, which has live music on the weekend. Due to the lack of insulation you can hear every...

We stayed here right after spending a 10.5 hour day driving in the car. Out side of hotel looked very nice and we were exited see our room and sleep! The room itself was okay, bathroom needed some renovations, as the floor tiles were falling apart and loss. The room was supposed to have a view but it was more... More

I have stayed at Cape Ann Marina 2 times for business. Both times have been absolutely wonderful! On my initial visit, I was very concerned driving in-the resort is way off the road and seemed a little eerie at my night time arrival. I was very wrong and glad I didn't turn around! This motel is very quaint and charming.... More
