Travellers' Choice
Welcome to the Bearskin Neck Motor Lodge, located on picturesque Bearskin Neck in historic Rockport, MA. All of our rooms are directly on the ocean in Sandy Bay Harbor with the tide stopping just 15 feet from your door! The front of the hotel is on Bearskin Neck, giving our guests access to all that Rockport has to offer, just steps from your door: beaches, art galleries, gift shops, hiking, music venues, and more. The back of the hotel is on the rocky shore looking out onto one of the most picturesque harbors in the state and provides a serene escape from the bustling town. Our location gives our guests the best of both worlds.

We have stayed at the Bearskin Neck Motor Lodge at least four times. They seem to have made upgrades each time we visit. Rock port is a great place to visit and there is no better place to stay. We have already made our reservations for next year.

Wonderful location. Ten minute walk to most restaurants and local activities. Ocean at your backdoor. Leave your window open and fall asleep by the osund of gentle lapping waves. Very clean units that are well appointed with bedding, bath and amenities. Gracious hosts. !!!! Includes free parking.

The room is very plain probably comparable to an inexpensive motel room. The location is the whole thing because you’re on the end of bearskin neck and you’re right on the water but that is the only good thing I can really say about staying here. I would not stay here again. It wasn’t a bad experience I’m glad I did it because now I know what it was like. The staff was nice but the room was just so lackluster I think because they have the primo location they don’t feel like that aesthetically they have to make any effort. There was no microwave. The room was clean but very plain no-frills. Just a room.

Hello, Thank you for taking the time to submit your feedback! Our location is truly unique since we are in the heart of downtown but also ocean front with amazing views. Thank you for the compliments on the staff as well, we work hard to make sure each guest stay is special. Location, clean rooms, and a helpful staff are the most important aspects of our Lodge and we are so pleased to hear you were satisfied with all of that. As for the comments about the room, we respectfully disagree. First of all, we are a motel but we are a far cry from typical dated motel décor. In 2020 we redid all the rooms. Our goal was to create a simple but well appointed coastal chic room. We intentionally avoided the cookie cutter hotel décor you may see in a Marriott and opted for clean lines, crisp white linens, local sea glass art and mosaic tables to compliment the ocean views. Instead of cluttering the room with random knick knacks, we kept it simple and chic. That was our design choice, but do not confuse that with a "lack of effort." Our rooms do not have microwaves but our other amenities are listed directly on our website and include: WiFi, cable flat screen tvs, coffee makers (with an assortment of coffee and tea), acs, heating, mini-refrigerators, and all rooms have easily accessible charging stations on all end tables for a variety of technology. Décor can be a matter of taste, as it seems it was here. However, we stand by our choices and feel our hundreds of 5 star reviews speak for themselves. We also encourage all guests to view photos of the property and each room on our website. Sincerely, Krystle & Eric

We really enjoyed our stay at the Bearskin Neck Motor Lodge. Everything was perfect about this accommodation from its breathtaking views to its welcoming staff. The rooms are clean and comfortable with a smooth running AC system. A small refrigerator is an added bonus. We look forward to visiting this awesome location again next year !!!

A small lodge with only 8 rooms. The rooms were very clean. The view from the room was awesome! When you walk into the room you can see the ocean water thru your windows. You can also sit on your deck and there is a beautiful view. The room comes with one free parking space. The location is excellent you can walk to the shops, restaurants, and beach. Usually in hotel rooms the light is not good enough for me to be able to read, but this lodge had reading lights above the bed. If you are looking for a great location, I would recommend this Lodge.
