    Nice Local Motel

    This was a nice local hotel. Close to a river where there were chairs provided to watch the boats float by.

    Poor choice

    Poorly run and managed. Door does not lock from inside. No help available to fix. Hot water flow was poor

    Great place

    Shea's was a very pleasant place to stay. Loved having the balcony over looking the water/marsh. Enjoyed seeing the boats going in and out, paddle boards, and kayaks. The service was great, and the Accommodation's were wonderful & very immaculate. Lots of windows which we liked. Will stay here again.

    What a wonderful place! The staff were extremely sweet and accommodating, and went above & beyond to make us happy. The cottage was adorable. So comfortable, and extremely clean. The setting is so beautiful and quaint, and felt like a piece of paradise.

    Lovely

    The location in Historic Essex, MA along the Essex River was just beautiful. The manager at Shea's was very knowledgeable and helpful. The accommodations were artfully aesthetic and appropriate. It was lovely.

    What a sweet motel sitting on a meandering river near restaurants and antique shops! Property manager, Gayle, keeps everything shipshape with annual coats of paint and nice updates that make it very ‘homey’. Rooms are nice and clean and bed was comfy. Will definitely be back!
