Once again an excellent time at this hotel. We come here every year and it doesn't disappoint . Staff is very helpful and nice rooms are beautiful. Pool is wonderful . You sit there and look at the most beautiful view of the coast.

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

I only have praise for the Gloucester Inn by the Sea owners, management and staff. They are aware of what their guests desire, and know how to deliver. Overall impression: The grounds and building are impeccably maintained. We had a charming (and very clean) room. The pool area is very clean, as well as the pool itself. The ocean view... More

Gloucester Inn by the Sea lived up to or exceeded every one of my expectations. The view alone is worth the trip! We woke up early just to watch the sunrise. The rooms are spotless and so nice. We had the room with the kitchenette. I didn't cook, but we did make use of what we needed and would probably... More

Everything - location, pool, condition of the room and the motel overall was perfect! 10 min walk from Good Harbor Beach saves $20 parking fee. Gloucester is about 5-10 min drive. The water was cold in the ocean, so I walked back to the hotel and went right to the pool - the water was great, pool was very clean... More

This was a perfect location to enjoy Gloucester, Mass & it's surrounding villages. The room was spotless & beautifully decorated. The view of the ocean right outside our windows was phenomenal. The staff was warm, welcoming & helpful. The fresh Nantucket coffee enjoyed each morning on the deck was a magnificent way to start each day.

WOW! From the view of the ocean to a staff at this place everything was exceptional. A friend and I visited Gloucester for 3 days and it was hard to break away from the Inn since it has it all. The staff was on top of the customer service game. Just ask and it's immediately done. If it's time to... More

We arrived at this absolutely charming Inn on Sept. 22, 2013. One never knows what to expect from pictures on the net .....whether or not the scenes are accurate or not! Well, the scenes do not depict the absolute majestic view from our room and that fabulous deck. Yes, the pictures are wonderful but the view is even more incredibly... More

We are from Michigan and this was our fifth time coming to this beautiful Inn. When we stepped out of room, the view of the ocean was incredible. There is a beautiful large porch with several groupings of furniture- We totally relaxed. There are several different choices of rooms- each one is decorated a little differently. Very clean. The staff,... More

We stayed here for a wedding and it was wonderful. The views of the ocean are incredible, the staff was friendly and helpful, and the room was clean and spacious. There's a large veranda with several groupings of wicker furniture so we ate a picnic lunch while enjoying the beautiful scenery.
