Me & my husband stayed here 3 years ago in Room 17 – beautiful room, fantastic view of the ocean. If I was reviewing that now, I’d give it 5 stars. Couldn’t wait to come back! Flash forward to summer 2014, we got room 16. Gross. Turns out they have not updated any of these rooms since the Inn was... More

The room is small but clean and has two double beds so is suited for a family of four. There is a good size refrigerator and it is air conditioned. No means to heat or cook anything except for a microwave in the office. The staff and housekeeping were very pleasant and helpful allowing our children to park at the... More

It's one of my husband and my favorite get-away places. The rooms are very clean and a good size with a refrigerator in all the rooms we've stayed in. It's a very typical beach front motel. The views of the beach are the best depending on where your room is situated and the staff can't be beat. My life-long friend... More

As the other reviewers have stated, Good Harbor Beach Inn is a modest hotel, with friendly staff and clean rooms, but the main reason people come back here year after year (and some families have been returning for 40 years!) is that you walk out your door and you're on the best beach in Gloucester. (Some would say the best... More

On Wednesday, my Wife and I decided to try our luck at booking a last minute deal on a room at Good Harbor beach in Gloucester. We have relatives who were staying at the Vista up the street, but that was booked, so I tried the Good Harbor Beach Inn. Lucky for us, there was a room available for Friday... More

Outside courtyard area with many tables very nice to sit and eat breakfast or have a snack. Snack bar right there …. and this... More

Went recently w/ my hubby for a long weekend, it was quite nice, this is a quaint little inn/motel, w/ a cozy lobby, they have coffee and poptarts/donuts in the mornings. The rooms aren't bad, basic, all are super clean, especially the bathrooms, they do a nice job. Knotty pine walls, 2 beds in most of the rooms (double beds),... More

This modest inn of 14 rooms is situated right, and I mean right, on Good Harbor Beach. A number of rooms have spectacular views looking right down the beach. Each room is very simply furnished with knotty pine walls, small bathrooms and somewhat outdated furniture. But, the location more than makes up for the lack of amenities in the rooms.... More

On several ocassions we have chosen the Good Harbor Beach Inn as a spot to explore the Rockport/Gloucester area with our dogs. The location is superb, the views and sounds of the ocean omnipresent. Although the rooms are simply furnished, they provide the necessary comfort. The prices are reasonable and the staff at the front desk are always helpful. A... More

The beach itself is beautiful, the sand is clean and soft, there are good waves in the (very cold) water, there's an island you can walk to and an area of shallow water with rocks (kids enjoy finding crabs etc there). There are rinsing showers and clean restrooms. There are lifeguards on duty but they don't really help and serve,... More
