We really enjoyed Cape Ann Motor Inn. We didn't stay long, but would definitely return. The view and proximity to the ocean are unbeatable. Yes, the local dogs seem to gather in the morning outside on the beach, but we thought that was fun. The decor is not modern, as some other reviewers suggested, but it really lends to the...

Location was wonderful. Views from the 3 rd floor were fantastic. Sure there were no lifts but we were pre warned. I felt the place could do with a major upgrade Rooms were clean But a little musty Coffee in rooms would be great. But value for money ? You bet !

Expensive for what you get! Older hotel that needs a lot of work. Our room on the third floor had a great view, but was a little disappointed in "Long Beach", not so long! Ceiling fan was wobbly, fridge wasn't very cold, one bed not very comfortable. Shower was okay. Bathroom window didn't have a screen so we couldn't open...

We stayed 3 night. The Front desk Staff are wonderful, my kids loved the talking bird. Nice clean rooms with an ocean view that is beautiful. The staff was very helpful on things in the area to do and places to eat.

This place is right on the beach in Gloucester. All rooms have an nice ocean view and shared balcony (motel style). It was very nice to sit and watch/hear the ocean from the room. Nice off- season price, as well. The room is dated but clean. The "continental" breakfast is a downer - pre-packaged, thawed danish with coffee and oj....

We stayed at the Cape Ann for 3 nights in January. It's a lovely, welcoming place. With our morning coffee and pastries we enjoyed "chatting" with Bert the parrot (she says Hello to everyone who opens the door!). A Nor'Easter came through during our stay and we were mesmerized, watching the stormy seas from our comfortable room. it's also a...

Many years ago we stayed here when our kids were younger and had many great visits. When our son's wedding was planned in Gloucester we knew right away this was where we wanted to stay. The room was small and not updated but that wasn't important to us. We were there to sleep and get ready for the rehearsal and...

We spent 3 days in September here with our daughter and Grandson. They stayed in the efficiency room next to ours. To walk down to the beach with it's gentle waves and expansive area was a child's dream come true. Granpa, Granma, Mom and son spent hours digging , making roads, running the beach, exploring the rocks and that was...

Had three nights in an efficiency room which had a full frig, stove, sink and basic dishes and utensils and microwave oven. We had adjoining rooms also so we were able to open the doors between our rooms and had a big pizza party with a place for the leftovers and drinks (the frig). It was wonderful to be on...
