“A jewel by the sea.”
Reviewed August 28, 2011

This was a happy accident, as we had not precooked any hotels during our time in the Boston area. Gloucester was hailed as having the best beaches so we took a chance on Cape Ann and we were thrilled. It's both affordable and convenient to everything locally. There are bookstores, cafes, seafood restaurants, beaches and more. The indoor pool and hot tub are immaculate. The locals are amazing!!! If you have the opportunity to stay there, hen eat dinner at The Causeway across the road....delicious!!! I very highly tecommend the seafood macaroni and cheese...it's loaded with lobster, scallops and shrimp. The marina is a gem, beautiful view from our room and delightful and accomodating staff. As Canadians we really appreciate such a warm welcome, especially when traveling with children. We will definitely return here. You cannot go wrong. I miss it already!!!

We came to Gloucester to go out deep sea fishing on a boat at the marina, so the location was perfect. As a base to explore the area, the location is also fine. The "resort" is really an upscale motel, but as such it's clean, fine and comfortable. Just make sure your expectations are not for luxury, and you won't be disappointed. Double beds are firm and comfortable, plenty of pillows, deck with a couple of chairs outside the room overlooked the marina. We used the pool, which was very warm, as well as the hot tub (jets were uneven, with some spewing too much and others not enough; tub interior needs to be refurbished). Bathrooms should be refreshed. Towels are not plush, but still ok. We appreciated and used the wifi, but wish it worked better. It's a better than basic accommodation and I'd even go back, but it's a bit less than they want to sell it as.

Wish we had known that you resort wasn't fully up and running. having no restaurant on site for 2 of our 3 nights was very disappointing. that is something that we should have been told before booking our reservation.

Room Tip: Make sure the restaurant is open!

This hotel is situated on the Annisquam River and offers an easy base with which to explore Gloucester. The included river cruise is a wonderful value, the hotel is clean and comfy with nice bedding. Great indoor heated pool and jacuzzi added a nice extra.

Room could use some TLC bathtub seemed flimsy, There was some mold on the tub/shower, the shower curtain did not have a liner, The hot / cold water handles were backward, hot water was cold / cold water was hot. The room was clean and comfortable. THe stay we had in early July the room had a fridge, no fridge in our stay later in the month. Staff at the front was very helpful on both stays, dockmaster was also great on both stays also. Pool was clean and nice. A deal for room and boat slip would be nice.

Room Tip: Bathrooms need some TLC / ask for room with fridge

We have stayed several times at Cape Ann Marina. Obviously we would not return if we didn't have a great time. After our visit two weeks ago, we sent an unsolicited email praising several members of the staff. The staff members go out of their way to make sure guests have a great time. Don't miss the cruise. Fantastic.. We'll be back.

The room, 2nd floor, king bed, was totally adequate and provided everything we needed. Staff was great. After we got home they called to inform me I left my medication in the room fridge which I felt was very thoughtful. Fortunately it was an extra supply and we didnt have to go back. My only con was that the place was a little far from the main section of Gloucester. You can walk to the oceanfront but it is far if you're not used to walking. Also if you are whale watching, you'll need a car to get to them.
