Groton, Massachusetts
Reviewed 9 April 2017

We stayed here for the first time this weekend but it won't our last. A lovely, newly renovated inn on the ocean with exceptionally warm and welcoming staff. Rooms are tastefully decorated. Our king bed was a four-poster -- really comfortable. Get an ocean view and watch the sun come up to wake you. Dinner at the Pigeon Cove Tavern...

Classical white summer beach hotel. The design bring back memories of lost times, where turists in white clothes and white hats went on vacation at the sea. The room we were allocated at first wasn’t cleaned. After much apologies from the nice receptionist, we got at better room with a better view of the ocean. So no harm done. There...

We spent 2 nights of our anniversary trip at the Emerson Inn. It was a beautiful historic inn. We stayed on the 4th floor and had a gorgeous ocean view! The sunrises were breathtaking! Friendly staff.

While traveling for business, I had a very pleasant stay at the Emerson Inn. My room was quiet and very clean. The restaurant had great food and spectacular ocean views. The only negative I can think of is that the room was a bit tiny compared to most hotel standards. The staff was very pleasant. I would stay here again.

We've been to the Rockport area in the past but never quite this late in the season. We (almost literally) had the place to ourselves. That made it extra nice but even when they're busy I can't see it dropping off much. It's an historic register place and there are no elevators. That was not a deal breaker for us...
