While there were some things better than others, this place needs some work. Our room was good and fairly clean, there needed to be some deep cleaning. We had a good value for the money with a small discount for bringing some more guests with us. The downside was that the living room space was just for show. We attempted... More

Alright, no flat screen TVs in the rooms, but there is computer access. The large friendly open porch welcomes you as you step into the Victorian-ish lobby of the old Corner Inn. Your room is a comfy four poster or large King size bed looking out on the large, sleepy trees through lace curtains of your warmly wallpapered room with... More

Stopped here by chance and was welcomed by Arthur , had a lovely spacious room, with en suite and roll top bath. Very old property, but had a wonderful nights sleep. Michael the owner was very friendly and we had a super breakfast in the delightful home from home dining area. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

We're pretty much locals but I like the Rte. 127 area up and down the coast from Salem to Rockport. Have passed by this place many times on the way to Tuck's Point so we decided to stay just for the heck of it even tho it's only 15 miles from where I live. Manchester is a really pretty place....

Local little inn in Manchester by the Sea, run by Michael. Both he and the inn were charming and accommodating. Very comfy bed and quaint rooms. Continental breakfast included, clean towels daily, free wifi access. We will definitely stop in and stay again.

This room is ridiculous, it's a huge room that has NOWHERE to hang clothes, not an armoire, not a closet, not even a metal rack. And the bathroom is at best DISGUSTING. One, it's carpeted, screaming germ infestation, the sink is absolutely useless, being so short in depth you cannot wash your face without soaking your feet and the shower... More

When my husband and I arrived at the Old Corner Inn, we rang the front doorbell and were greeted by Mike, who welcomed us to town and got us settled into our room. A welcomed respite from the 100 degree heat wave outside, our room was chilled to a comfortable level by the window unit inside. Toiletries, as well as... More

A recent visit to Massachusetts and a girlfriend getaway brought me to the Old Corner Inn, A charming B&B, located on beautiful Cape Ann. Inn Keeper Mike was friendly and helpful as was his assistant Steve. A continental breakfast was served each morning and I enjoyed having coffee out on the gracious front porch. The common areas were relaxing and... More

My husband and I had just gotten engaged prior to our trip to Manchester. Upon telling the inn keeper that, he upgraded our room. It was a nice gesture. It was a quiet place to stay. The bathrooms are a bit outdated and the inn needs some improvements, but overall it is a great location and comfortable sleep.

This is the most over priced, run down, poorly maintained lodging facility we've been to in years. And we travel a lot. It is promoted as a B&B. There is no one there at check in time, or during the night. No staff and the owner lives in NH. The sign on the door says something like come in, pick... More
