This is a great base to explore, the staff and management are very friendly and helpful. We had a lovely room with a fantastic sea view, you can get a great breakfast down the road at the Atlantic ocean front hotel. We were due to go whale watching in the town but unfortunately the sea was too rough to go.

We chose this hotel based on several things: Tripadvisor reviews, price, and availability of rooms with two beds as I was traveling with my daughter. We had a lower floor room which opened to a patio from which we could see the ocean. We made use of it while drinking our morning coffee and our evening glass of wine. A... More

excellent location overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. VIrtually impossible to get closer to the ocean. Good value compared to other nearby hotels. The downside to this hotel is that the rooms are small and the walls are paper thin. You can hear everything in the rooms around you. During our first night, there was a wedding party at the hotel.

The Inn has a wonderful view of the ocean. We walked to the beach as there is limited parking for non residents. The room was clean and we did not hear other guests through the walls. The pool area was nice and relaxing after a day of hiking and sight seeing. If you visit Gloucester please go to the Dog... More

We really enjoyed our stay there - room was charming and clean. Staff was great! View was wonderful. Only thing I would recommend is put cleaning fans in for better air circulation! Thank you for the hospitality and recommendations!

I stayed at the Inn for Labor Day weekend for 2 nights. The location is wonderful, spectacular view of the ocean and rocks! Walking distance to the beach (saves $25 for parking at the beach). The lobby has free coffee and snacks for sale but that's all. Breakfast at the Atlantis is open to the publi which is a couple... More

My husband and I were there for my birthday and immediately upon arrival we were so impressed and thought everything exceeded the pictures and info on the web. Absolutely gorgeous and so clean with lots of appointments. Binoculars to use, beach things to borrow, great info and menus etc. and advice. Room was great and loved the deck and peacefulness....

Some friends and I stayed one night in room 1 and 2. The booking experience was very good, and the staff was friendly, and they did not have a 2 night minimum. The grounds are immaculate; the pool, the deck, the furnishings are well taken care of. The view of course, is the draw of this hotel with a beautiful... More
