Pro: On the beach, rooms are clean. Con: Room is too dark at day day time, (lamps are very decorative but worthless - poor light). At night too much light shines into the room (stayed at #3 7/24-24/2015). Every word spoken outside of the room, found it's way in too. Wifi did NOT work.

My wife and I were returning to Gloucester to run the Twin Lights Half Marathon. I hadnt found this gem last year, we stayed in Salem and parked in the beach lot for the race. This inn is but a five minute walk to the starting line which was enough to earn it 4 stars! Its an old inn, and... More

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

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
