After reading reviews and such I was prepared for the typical motel room and sandy floors and even sand in the bed. My wife is always fine with the rustic places, while I like clean and updated decent rooms. Cape Ann needs to spend $5k on each room and update them and charge people $25 more per night. It is rather pathetic that the owners choose not to spend money on capital improvements on this motel which is in a great lil' private nook tucked away...Shame on them.
The rooms are very outdated and obviously need to be repaired. The vinyl Sofa was hard as a rock. The board in between the mattress was a nice touch. COME ON, if it's bad enough that you have to place a board in there, REPLACE the bed. Loved the felt like blanket which was about as thin as fabric at Joannne Fabric shoppes. THe holes in the blanket were either from wear and tear or bedbugs. HOLES in blanket=NEW BLANKET please.
So grab a glass of water from the efficiency kitchen area (Iv'e seen welfare apt. have better kitchen areas) and YUK, the glasses were FILThY, not dirty but FILTHY! turned my stomach.
THh major patchworks through the ceiling was a great sight to see too. Obviously it's old because you could hear the guy above us trouncing all around.
Cape Ann is a great place to be on the beach, location is tucked away and somewhat private. Some motel staff were nice, but one lady needs a review class of customer service. I would not reccomend this place to anyone, even if they wanted to be on the beach. Again I find it pathetic the owners choose greed over capital improvements of this motel. THey have a gem of a location but seem to care less if it gets washed away into the ocean.
