“Great view and awesome staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

The view from all the rooms in great. The beach is right there, the motel supplies towels, beach toys and chairs. The rooms were clean and they provided service every day. The staff was very pleasant and friendly. I would highly recommend this motel to anyone who is staying in the Chatham area. Rates are reasonable.

My family chose the Hawthorne Motel for a family reunion this past weekend. It was our first time at the Hawthorne and we are sure to be back. The rooms are clean and the views are spectacular. The Hawthorne is literally right on the beach -- they provide you with beach towels and beach toys for your children to use for the day. Gil and Ellie and their little pup could not have been friendlier. They gave us great recommendations for meals and shopping.

We will definitely be back and are hoping to be able to rent the little cottage in near future.

Thank you again Gil and Ellie!

Room Tip: The rooms overlooking on beach are the best but be prepared to wake up early. Even with the shades...

First - the view is spectacular. We pulled in around sunset and were so excited to see where we would be staying and playing for the weekend. We stayed at the Hawthorne for a wedding and it was so much fun to have all of our friends in the same spot with such easy access to the beach... we loved hanging out on the back patio in between events. I especially loved that the Hawthorne provided beach towels and chairs. We stayed in a Deluxe Motel Room Ocean View, and I was impressed with the size and furnishings. The room was very clean and they provided plenty of towels. The view was gorgeous, but the only downside is I had to keep the blinds down almost the entire time otherwise other guests could see right in as they walked by to the back patio / entrance to the office. Overall a great place to stay and I would highly recommend it!

Spent the four days starting on Memorial Day at the Hawthorne Motel. What a wonderful sight from the view of the harbor to the fine grain sand beach we just loved y. Just can's say enough wonderful things about our Hosts Gil and Ellie. They were so warm and special just delightful. When next on the Cape, we will definately seek out this place. Just hope it is not booked so we can get reservations. Much better than closest competition down the shore road. Special and wonderfil all in one. The best. Bob Klinzing

Room Tip: Room 104 for the view.

We have been staying at the Hawthorne since the 60's and can't imagine staying any place else. Located right on the beach and within easy walking distance to downtown Chatham it has served our multi-generational family well. Gil and Ellie were wonderful providing us with ideas on new places to visit and things to do. They are up to date on the newest and best restaurants in the area. Gil provided lots of laughs with his funny stories and jokes during our family cocktail hour on the patio.

Room Tip: Ocean view are worth the extra charge, and for convenience of making your own meals if you don't...

The Hawthorn Motel is a great place for families, friends, and parties of all types to stay. The motel is located right next to a beach that is great for a stroll, family beach time, paddle boarding, and much more. Rooms are spacious and clean. They have beech chairs and umbrellas available for guest use which is great. The motel provides beach towels to borrow for the beach for free.There is a nice patio made for a morning tea or an evening snack that has a wonderful view of the ocean. The view is awesome. Walkable distance to Chatham town center.

Room Tip: Rooms on the top floor have a beautiful view of the ocean.

We stayed 10/1 & 10/2 in the very end efficiency closest to the beach - very nice, clean room - plenty of room for just the two of us - very nice view of the beach, however this to us was not a swimming type beach, even though we wouldn't have been swimming this time of year - there is a barrier type strip of land further out from this beach that prevents any nice waves from coming in and we really enjoy hearing the waves hitting the shore - checkin by Gil was great - very friendly and helpful - our only complaint about the room was that the bed had no headboard and there really weren't any comfy places to sit and watch TV except the bed - no way to prop yourself up and get comfy - we don't usually watch TV much in evening anyway when traveling but we like to sip our coffee in morning and watch the news - overall though a very nice place - Chatham a very nice town
