Have been going there for over 30 years. The location is perfect. On the beach...out of the way. Always go in the fall & is a great base. Equal distance to Gloucester and Rockport. Kitchenettes are nice if you are staying longer. Walking the beach every morning is a pleasant way to start the day. Friendly atmosphere. Can't wait to...

The inn is right on the Ocean. Beach is good until tide comes in. Inn is older and rooms are in need of remodeling. Rooms are noisey. Staff is very friendly and they have coffee and donuts for a morning snack. Good location to Rockport and Gloucester. Harbor beach is just down the road.

Even thou this is a small quiant little hotel, it was awesome. Family own and run. They were terrific. The bakery made - right out of the oven pastries they had each morning with juice and coffee was exceptional. A diamond in the rough

My daughter and her family live in Gloucester and I am there very often. This was my first visit to Cape Ann Motor Inn. I found it to be charming, unique and delightful. I stayed there with my daughter and two granddaughters. We boogie boarded, at low tide we found all sorts of sea creatures and walked the whole length...

To start off, the only positive thing that this motel has going for it is its location right on the beach. But other than that, I wholeheartedly agree with everything that Tim J wrote, and I also am sorry to be posting a negative review. Just returned from one night at this motel and we will never return. When we...

Perfect location with a beautiful beach. Lovely walk on the beach. Pet friendly. Muffins and coffee in the morning. Rooms a bit dated, but comfortable. Would not hesitate to stay there again or recommend

The motor inn is right on the beach and the view is worth a million dollars! Ok so the room is simple but clean. You just cant beat the location and the view from our balcony was breathtaking. I booked on the run and did not read the reviews. It is sad that the person who really gave this place...

I'm sorry to have to write a negative review - but in this case it's necessary. My wife and I stayed three nights at the Cape Ann Motor Inn in September 2012 and it was one of the worst hotel experiences I've had in a long time. That's saying something since I've traveled around the world and have spent more...

The roomas are clean and all of them face the ocean. Listen to the surf at night and wake up with the sunrise. Ideal location. The hotel is a bit dated, but it is clean and the beach very convenient. The staff is very pleasant Fulls up in the summer, so get your room early. The handicapped room has renovated...
