I had to dispute the only other review here on the emerson- because it does not justify the charm of the Emerson Inn by the Sea. I Am 23 years old, and have been staying there once a year for nineteen years. Since it was Ralph Waldo Emerson, it has always been a very special place. The rooms are all different- some quite big some small. But they are unique and comfortable rooms that have a memorable quality. The prices are not cheap at all, but it is a luxury to stay at. It must be mentioned the view (on half the side- likely more expensive) is spectacular. It's has a casual feel and I will be a lifelong visitor as long as it remains. It has a special place in my heart that is reinforced year after year. I am in fact on my trip for my one visit this year- and I cannot be more thrilled to arrive!!

The Emerson Inn is an old building converted to have in-suite bathrooms. This conversion has made the rooms extremely cramped. The hotel is located in a crowded residential neighborhood and is a long walk into Rockport. The bed was way too soft and lumpy for me to get any sleep. There is a list of conditions you have to initial when checking-in. A few were: a $350 charge if they suspect you have been smoking in the room, $50 for a lost key, and no TV or talking out loud after 10 PM. It was true; there is absolutely no sound privacy in the rooms.
