The Hawthorne is very clean and quiet with basic rooms and some beautiful views. The owners are also the managers and you can tell they take pride in their hotel. The grounds, wirh their hydrangeas, and other flowers are simply lovely. The motel is right next door to the Chatham Bars Inn at half the price. Several times we walked over there for the excellent (but expensive) buffet breakfast. I have a couple of comments, however. I had very little contact with the innkeepers but there was something about our check in with (I believe her name is kellie) that was decidedly chilly. It made me not want to make contact with her or ask her about Chatham. Perhaps we caught her at the end of a bad day. Also, the beach in front of the hotel is not swim able. It is basically a marina with many boats moored there. You would not want to swim there despite the hotel providing beach towels and chairs. We drove 15 minutes every day to Harding beach. Finally, I have to comment that the beds at the motel were not comfortable and they oddly do not have fitted sheets on them. Each day they were made up with flat sheets on the bottom. Each night they slid down and the mattress and mattress pad were exposed. Overall, this would be a nice quiet place to stay as a couple (I had my two children with me), especially if you are there to relax and not swim. But bring your own bottom sheet!
