Great family friendly spot. Don't worry about your sandy feet and beach toys. If you want fancy, this isn't for you. But if you want to relax at a beautiful beach during the day and sleep to the sound of the waves at night, you've found the perfect spot. This is our 21st year and will be back again.

Right out our sliding glass door we stood out on the deck & enjoyed looking right onto the beach & out into the ocean. In full clear view was Thatcher Island with it's 2 lighthouses. Watching the sun rise... More

We recently spent 2 nights in this comfortable old Inn. Our room on the 2nd floor had such amazing views of the beach,surfers and the water with two lighthouses on an island directly on front. The fridge in the room was great and we were able to eat our lunch and breakfast on the balcony while enjoying the view. It... More

After reading so many reviews about this wonderful gem of a hotel we were excited to check it out. His sister had been there many years ago and suggested a stay. We were not disappointed. Simple but clean and well appointed. The staff was friendly and helpful. Their beach is part of Long Beach, absolutely gorgeous. We have been many... More

If you are looking for something not fancy, on the beach that is super friendly and has no problem accommodating dogs, this is it! This is our third off-season trip to take our dogs and just walk the beach and eat seafood. We don't care about the tourist thing so this is perfect

The Cape Ann Motor Inn sits directly on a sandy beach cove. It is pet friendly and so are the beach areas in the off season months. So its the perfect spot to relax and unwind with your furry best friend. Bring the family too...its that kind of homey atmosphere that our family loves. Nothing fancy or elaborate, but clean...

We booked this hotel strictly because of the beach location. Figured an outdated place was a small price to pay for the amazing view offered out your doors. Wrong! This place is in serious need of a complete renovation. I mean, come on! This is prime location! You couldn't ask for better. Put some money back into it and you... More

Loved this place!!. People were very nice and it was very clean. Loved the fact that it sits directly on the sand of Long beach. The sound and views of the water and sunrises were fabulous. Hope to return for our honeymoon!!

Step our of your hotel room and you are right on a beautiful private beach that is enjoyed from Gloucester to Rockport with a small island smack dab in the middle. Surfers enjoy the break at mid-beach. Great for a long walk or jogging. THis is not a frilly or famous or "gala" hotel. It is a very, very friendly... More
