Cape Ann Motor Inn is one of the only beach front or ocean front hotels in Gloucester Massachusetts. We are conveniently located just 30 miles northeast of Boston. We are directly on Long Beach on the Rockport - Gloucester line. All kitchenettes and guest rooms overlook the ocean, with a beautiful view of Thacher Island and its twin lighthouses, just off the coast of Rockport. The sunrises here are unforgettable. We are open all year, so you can enjoy a great Gloucester MA hotel beachfront vacation, or quiet off-season getaway here on Cape Ann. All rooms now include portable air conditioning units.

    Great location, wonderful views

    Dog-friendly motor inn directly at the beach. Dated rooms but everything works and is well cleaned. Lots to do, many dog owners come here to enjoy the incredible ocean view and the dog friendly beach that invites walking.

    Excellent place for dogs

    We stayed the weekend here. The location is amazing so much fun for my pup. the hotel is a little dated but being able to run the beach made up for it. my only suggestion is stay on the first or second floor. We were on the third floor and it was a lot of stairs!
