Great location! Unobstructed ocean views. We took a long walk on the beach. A nice way to end a long day of driving. Walking distance to main streets. Nice, clean & quiet. Lovely neighborhood We enjoyed our 1 night stay & hope to return.

My partner and I were supposed to do an overnight on Martha’s Vineyard after a week in Provincetown, but severe winds cancelled all ferries. So we decided to do an overnight in the lovely town of Chatham, where we frequently day trip but have never spent the night. After a quick look on TripAdvisor, we called the Hawthorne to see...

Most important to note is the excellent staff...warm, welcoming, friendly. The room was clean and had a total Cape Cod cottage feel. It was homey, comfortable. Small bathroom with little or no space for personal supplies, but I'm not a nut about bathrooms. Water pressure was decent; sink large ... that's all I care about so I stand behind my... More

My husband and I stayed at the Hawthorne as a quick weekend getaway and it was everything we needed and nothing we didn't. We wanted to stay in Chatham, preferably near the water but didn't want to spend a fortune. Even in late October, this isn't an easy thing to accomplish. The Hawthorne is in a beautiful location right on... More

From beginning to end - great experience. The staff was polite, friendly and walked us to our room. Loved the coffee bar and thew views and location are top-notch. Loved seeing the sunrise from our front window. No question, we'd go back.

This motel is located right beside the ocean on Shore Road. Wonderful location. The room was very clean and fresh with lovely bright decor. The bathroom looked brand new and was exceptionally clean. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Our room did not face the ocean so I would definitely request an ocean view room if booking again. Motel is... More

We stayed for one night and certainly weren't disappointed. We received a very warm welcome and were directed to our room, we'd booked an ocean view queen room. To be 100% honest I was initially a little disappointed with the description, the ocean view wasn't quite directly from the room itself. However, the location was brilliant and chairs were supplied... More
