Fodor’s Hawthorne Motel Review 2013
This popular motel with a private beach overlooks Pleasant Bay, the Atlantic, and Chatham Harbor. Nearly all of the rooms have stunning water views. Choose from spotless no-nonsense, simply decorated motel rooms or kitchenette efficiency units with small refrigerators, two heating plates, and a countertop sink work area; there’s also a two-bedroom cottage (rented by the week in season) with full kitchen and a separate living-dining room, plus amenities like a VCR and an outdoor grill. The center of town is just a short walk away. 16 rooms, 10 efficiencies, 1 cottage. Some kitchenettes, refrigerators, cable TV; no smoking.
Reviews from Trip Advisor
"The Hawthorne sits right on the water and most rooms will have a view of the boats and sunrise. There is a lovely lawn and patio where you can relax; coffee and tea and fruit set out in the lobby/living room area in the morning. It is easy to walk into town and to the lighthouse and very central for driving to the other Cape areas of Provincetown and Hyannis." (October 2013)
"This is our 19th year staying at the Hawthorne! It is a very Special hotel - right on the beach and a close walk into town. The owners and the staff are very friendly and accommodating, always making sure our visit is enjoyable. The rooms are clean and beautifully decorated - very quiet and relaxing with a great outside area for enjoying the beautiful surroundings. Have already booked for next summer! Would highly recommend!" (August 2013)
"The Hawthorne Motel is a great place for families, friends, and parties of all types to stay. The motel is located right next to a beach that is great for a stroll, family beach time, paddle boarding, and much more. Rooms are spacious and clean. They have beach chairs and umbrellas available for guest use which is great. The motel provides beach towels to borrow for the beach.There is a nice patio made for morning tea or an evening snack that has a wonderful view of the ocean. The view is awesome. Walkable distance to Chatham town center. (November 2012)
