We stayed for 2 nights in late August to attend a wedding...very clean rooms...private beach...surprise welcome gifts in room...walk to town and to Chatham Bars Inn...worth the extra money for an ocean view...every room has a table and chairs outside.

The rooms are like standard motel rooms, but everything is fresh and clean. In our efficiency room, there was a Kurig and pods for coffee and just about anything else you might want. Each room has its own table and chairs outdoors so that the fabulous views can be enjoyed. The staff is friendly and helpful.

Very much taken back by the cleanliness and décor of room, not to mention the amazing view. I had stayed at the Hawthorne about 35 years ago and that added to my personal experience because it brought back nice memories.

Room Tip: Ask for a 2nd level room, not lower level overlooking rear parking area.

We found the Hawthorne to be a very quiet and relaxing motel right on the ocean in Chatham. The staff was very kind and helpful. Room was very clean and had a wonderful view of the ocean. We would definitely return.

We stayed at Hawthorne Motel for a wedding and couldn't have been happier. To be honest, the website was not the greatest so we weren't really sure what we were in for. However, don't let that deter you - the rooms are good size and kept very clean.

But what really makes this hotel is the location. Our room happened to face the Cape so we woke up each morning to stunning views of the sunshine over the water. The property is situated right on the beach so after a very short stroll you can be at the water in no time. The hotel does not have a ton of amenities, but who really needs them when you have such natural beauty to keep you busy? There are plenty of chairs and lounges - both on the beach and on the hill above the beach. Both are great spots to relax!

The Hawthorne is also a very short walk to the major attractions in Chatham. Within 10 minutes you can be at the town center where the shops and restaurants are or at the lighthouse and beach area.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Hawthorne and would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a place to stay in the Chatham area.

Room Tip: Depending on cost difference, definitely ask for Cape view room. It made all the difference!

My husband and I stayed for the last two nights, 6th and 7th September. a lovely welcome by the hosts who gave a brief overview of the facilities and also recommendations on where to eat in Chatham. The Hawthorne itself is a six minute stroll from the Main Street so ideal for a meal at night if you wanted to have a drink and not drive. One recommendation if you do this....pack a torch as the road to town is very dark and not lit. The motel is right on the beach and the views are to die for. We got up handy one morning and took a stroll along .. we saw a few seals anxious to collect the fishermans spoils, a few people collecting clams...loads of gulls. The rooms are either facing the sea or to the road. We didn't opt this time for a sea view but would next time. The views and scenery are spectacular. Free sun loungers, parasols, use of a gas BBQ if needed. Fridges in the rooms. Room itself, really comfy and clean...loved little personal touches like the sign saying "no scales... We want you to enjoy eating out !". I would highly recommend this as a place to stay if you were visiting Chatham... and I'd definitely come back.

Room Tip: Chose a sea view room !!

We have stayed here the past five Labor Day weekends with friends. Gil, Ellie and their employees are friendly. The rooms are clean and our room had a small kitchenette with Keurig coffeemaker, small refrigerator and stove. The king-size bed almost fills the room. The best part about staying here are the lawn chairs, informality and beautiful view with direct access to the beach. We look forward to our stay every year.

Room Tip: Rooms on South side have kitchenettes and are facing lawn and water.
