Reviewed October 14, 2008

My husband and I spent our 24th anniversary here. It was our first visit and loved it so much, we booked a week for the upcoming summer. We had a top floor king room, which was quite roomy. Rooms have been updated including flat screen T.V.'s and refrigerators. The bed was incredibly comfortable. Loved the private terrace outside of our room and watched the sunrise each morning. It is obvious the staff takes pride in their work; the room was immaculate during our entire stay. We enjoyed the breakfasts at the hotel restaurant and found the prices to be appropriate for fresh, homemade meals. Sunday breakfast offerings are extra special. The staff is professional and very helpful with directions to anywhere in Cape Ann. Loved the fresh baked chocolate cookies in the office every day. After running around all day, it was nice to come back to some quiet and relaxation.

I saw the Atlanis on a Tripadvisor review. When we arrived, i was pleased to see the quality of the Motel was in line with the reviews (if you are from the Central US and have preconceptions of Motels, Motels are actually nice places in the Upper North East).
The gentleman that checked us in was friendly. They had menus of all Gloucester restaurants. It was a late night and he called all the restaurants he recommended to see if they were still open; a very kind gesture.
We booked the lowest level room on the 'garden' floor. It was approx $140/night (early Oct) and you could still see the ocean from the room. I believe that you can spend $20 more per night to get to the second floor and that probably would give a better ocean view, if that is important to you.
There is a restaurant at the motel only open for breakfast. It's decent and relatively inexpensive. I don't want to take anything away from the restaurant, but I say take the 10 minute trip and go to downtown Gloucester for breakfast.
When going to downtown Gloucester from the motel, take a right out of the hotel and see the beatiful house/views as you travel toward Gloucester

My wife and I, and one other couple, stayed at the Atlantis for 5 days early in September. We had third floor rooms. View was spectacular. Rates were reasonable. Rooms were immaculate. Staff was very friendly, but professional - well informed as to local matters, and directions for tourists. Breakfast in the Cafe was delicious, with varied choices, and priced moderately, with large portions. Well situated for walks along the seashore. Easy to access Rt. 128 which is apparently the "backbone" of Cape Ann. Especially enjoyed the coyote calls from the golf course adjacent to the parking lot. Can recommend whole-heartedly, without reservations.

The Atlantis was just what we wanted! We stayed on the top floor for three nights. Don't expect a five star pampered experience-instead, you get the feeling of having your own little cottage on the ocean. Perfect. The view from the balcony was so beautiful...the waves crashing on the huge, rounded granite rocks. Just down the way, the sandy Good Harbor beach-we could have walked there, but drove so we could have all our "stuff". The pool was nice and overlooked the ocean. The room was very clean. The small refrigerator was just right for keeping some snacks and beverages-and there are grocery stores near enough. We had two adults and two older teens and we did not feel cramped. Having a front and back door added to the openness. We ate at the breakfast restaurant attached and found the prices very reasonable and the selection was varied. I recommend the special oatmeal with pecans and cranberries (about $4.50), and the Atlantis sandwich which was an egg on english muffin with fresh spinach (about $6.50). We ate most meals out-and the staff at the desk had lots of information and recommendations for local restaurants. We will most definately be back.

The other reviews are right - this place was terrific. The views from the balcony are classic - ocean waves pounding into granite rocks. The rooms seem spacious because each has a balcony and also a back entrance onto the parking lot, so you can walk through the room. But we were two adults and two kids so we felt a bit cramped by the end of a week - we would definitely need something bigger. The hotel seems more geared towards adults than families - there were only a few other kids around. The pool is nice. My biggest suggestion is that there should be breakfast included - the food in the restaurant is great but we only ate there once because it was so expensive (otherwise we ate in the room, which had a fridge).
