Situated amid the salt marshes on the shores of the Essex River, this property on the North Shore of Massachusetts offers six rooms in a restored 18th-century Colonial and 15 rooms in a one-story, retro style (but well-maintained) motel that has good options for families. Motel room choices include two queen rooms and efficiencies, and all rooms have unique decor, private bathrooms, and free Wi-Fi.
The motel is close to sister business Shea’s Riverside Restaurant & Bar, which offers pretty river views and a kids’ menu that includes a free ice cream cup for young diners. The property’s location makes it easy to explore nearby Cape Ann and other North Shores sites.
