My wife and I have been vacationing at the Cape Ann Motor Inn since 1984, before we were married. We found it accidentally, that first trip, but it was full. As we stood in the office asking about rooms, prices, etc.we could not help but notice the incredible view; the Lighthouses. We came back 6 moths later, this time with... More

Yes, the beach is there, which is lovely. The staff was impatient, unwelcoming and impolite. The bathroom was dirty, the beds uncomfortable and the pillows smelled unclean. My family recently returned on a month long trip across the country and stayed in many hotels, none of which we could say that we'd never stay in again. I don't care what... More

Another wonderful family vacation at the Cape Ann Motor Inn. We've been coming on and off for forty years. Located right on Long Beach, with glorious views of two lighthouses, it's hard to leave. The rooms are clean, and the people are great. Minutes away from the art galleries in Rockport and the whale watches in Gloucester. What's not to... More

We recently stayed at "our happy place" on the ocean...The Cape Ann Motor Inn. This was our 5th visit. We try to get there at least once per summer since happening upon this glorious place 5 years ago. The view is simply astounding, no matter which room we have had, as every one overlooks the beach and the ocean. No... More

You can see my previous reviews for more detail, but everything holds: you stay here for the beach, the location cannot be beat. The hotel itself is stuck in time (like 1970). Location gets 5 stars, hotel gets 2 stars. The staff are friendly and housekeeping is helpful and understanding. Stay on the third floor for the best view. Chill... More

We just got back from a trip to Salem and weren't planning on staying here. We were supposed to go back home but then took a ride of the coast and found Long Beach. We decided to see if there was a room available for the next night (Thursday) and there was so we booked a kitchenette room on the... More

I have been staying there with my children for many summers and it always is a wonderful vacation. I feel safe and the hospital is only 10 minutes away in case of emergency. The fact that it is right on the beach gives me a chance to sit on the balcony and enjoy the ocean even when the children are... More

Five star view. Two star room. There isnt a better location or family beach on the eastern sea board (IMO). You don't go here to sit in your room or be pampered. The rooms are relatively shabby, but the views and location are unparalleled for the price. Soft sand, quiet cove, relatively flat water. Basic rooms with a fridge and... More
