Beautiful sunset views. Very relaxing. Extremely friendly and helpful owners. This was a four day break my husband and I took with my 26 year old son and his girlfriend. Each couple stayed in a standard room. I would thoroughly recommend Bearskin Neck Motor Lodge.

While the rooms are pretty simple, the location is amazing and the new ownership is beginning to add their own touches to the motor lodge. The staff is very welcoming and accommodating. We couldn't have been happier with our stay. It just wasn't long enough! We will be back as soon as we can get there!

We spent the week watching the sea, wandering around Rockport, just taking it easy. This was the perfect spot for a relaxing getaway. The owners are gracious, helpful and delightful. Rooms are simply furnished, clean and comfortable.

Fabulous views, can't get any closer to the water! Location is awesome and we walked to breakfast, lunch & dinner. Shops and art gallerys all over Bearskin Neck. Loved it! Staff could not have been any nicer or accommodating! Would highly recommend this motel.

I will definitely return to the Bearskin Neck Motor Lodge. The location is perfect and the owners are extremely kind - their dog is cute too. The rooms are pleasant, nothing fancy but clean and comfortable.

My husband and I (seniors) stayed for 1 night. The owners were very friendly and accommodating (even carried our suitcase up the outdoor staircase to the 2nd level where our room was located.) The view from our room was absolutely lovely and peaceful. But we also had the convenience of the local shops being right outside the door! Parking was... More

Was a very convenient location for a mini vacation in Rockport after attending a concert at new performance center. Good, clean basic motel...no frills but ocean right outside your window, wonderful view, fire day staff. Driving on Bearskin Neck a little challenging when crowded, but great to have the parking space in town! Will come back!

Hello, Thank you for the nice review! The Shalin Liu concert center is absolutely beautiful. I am glad you enjoyed the concert. Rockport can be busy during the summer months, but that is what makes our location great. You can walk to almost everything and still relax on the ocean. Sincerely, Krystle & Eric More

We stayed on the second floor. The view was incredible, the sound of the seagulls, the ocean breeze blowing through the windows - what's not to love? Perfect spot to visit all the cute shops and have a bite to eat. The owners couldn't be nicer and accommodating. The room was very clean & comfortable. They even carried a mini-fridge... More

This is a pleasant, nicer than average motor lodge with nice rooms and friendly, helpful staff--in a really great location. The rooms are on the rocks by the water. It's like being on a boat, minus the swaying. The crashing of the waves on the rocks is awesome--a great sound to fall asleep by and awaken to.The common deck is... More

Hello, Thank you again for the nice review! Many people compare staying in our rooms to being on a cruise ship, minus the motion sickness of course! It is very nice to be able to enjoy the ocean front rooms. Bearskin Neck can be busy in the summer months, particularly on the weekend. However, do not worry. You can drive... More
