I booked this B&B as part of a trip to New England and from the photographs on the web it looked ok. The actual building, from the outside, was ok! It looked really nice and it was conveniently located. Eating breakfast outside on the veranda was great but inside it was a bit run down. It wasn't dirty or falling... More

Tom and his brother Mike run a gorgeous inn. I was grateful for room 7, huge, sea view, super clean and nicely decorated. 5 min walk to Stony Neck artists colony and Niles beach! The porch is a delight. I appreciated the (strong) coffee and continental breakfast. Only wish they had more nights for me to stay! Reasonably priced, too.... More

Years ago this was probably a gem in Gloucester. However, little has been done to update the facilities for quite some time. Little things like kleenex, shampoo, and hair dryers would certainly make the visit more enjoyable. Even a coffee pot in the room would have been appreciated since there was nothing else for us to eat.

This holiday we deliberately chose B and B's to stay in, this one was the most expensive of all the ones we stayed in and the worst. We arrived during the allotted time but there was no one to greet us, we found an envelope with our names on it on a table. The room was clean but basic, the... More

Found it by good fortune. Spoke with Tom and after a couple of minutes of conversation I felt like we'd known each other for years. Everything about the house is authentic B&B and Tom goes out of his way to make you feel like while you're there it's as much yours as it is his. Have never slept on a... More

The staff at the Colonial Inn were very friendly and accommodating to all our requests and even gave us a discount due to a leaky toilet. They gave us tips on dining and sightseeing, which were quite good. While the view was lovely from the porch, the rooms were average, yet comfortable overall. If you are looking for an upscale...

My wife and I headed up from Boston for a necessary but all-to-brief two-day getaway. We chose the Colonial Inn because it received many positive reviews here, was a simple place (we're not luxury types), and is in a nice location close, but not too close, to downtown Gloucester. This was a great choice on our part. The inn is... More
