Somehow when you pay a good bit for a room you expect a few things. But here we were disappointed. Little things add up to make a less than good stay. The room was a basic motel room in an annex to the main building. There was no coffee maker in the room, and coffee in the morning only available... More

The Castle Manor Inn is just fine, and affordable for Gloucester in high season. Good for a quick stay in Gloucester. We were greeted rather cooly, and given a key. We knew we'd reserved a room in the adjacent motel units, so that was't a problem, and it was very convenient to park our car right in front of the... More

We stayed at the motel. I think it was overpriced for what you get. The bed could of been made out of concrete it was so hard. It's the most important part of a stay. Would not stay here again. The breakfast was ok but nothing special. It might be better in the Inn but it cost more.

A nice clean room with everything you need. We didn't get to stay in the main house but did enjoy the continental breakfast on the deck. Our room was perfect for out stay...clean and pleasant with easy access to the beaches and sights. Wish we tried the restaurant and the tavern.

We needed to find a place close to Rockport and didn't have many options so we picked this place and paid the same price as some 5 star hotels but got a motel type of atmosphere and feel to it. The shower was like a waterbed with water below the floor, some towels had rust stains, carpet was like that... More

I stayed here while attending a wedding nearby so did not spend too much time at the inn, but the time I did spend there was memorable largely because of the kindness and helpfulness of the staff. I had my choice of staying in their motel annex or the inn. The staff member I spoke with recommended I stay at... More

The main building in the photos is a lovely old Inn. However, many of the rooms are in buildings outside of the main building and are nothing more than a standard crummy little roadside motel. The room was clean enough, but it was not a pleasant experience. It's the type of place you would stay if you were on a... More

We stayed one night in the Family Suite on the 3rd floor. Comfy beds, nice decor, friendly hosts and great food (the restaurant, Seaglass, is amazing!!). Lots of hot water, cookies brought to the door just before bed time - they were straight out of the oven! Free wifi. The view is nice - it's a marshland. One reviewer said... More

Our stay was for one night but that one night I felt like I had been there before as everyone treated you like a friend. We stayed in the main building on the third floor on a very hot day and night but the breeze coming of the ocean and ac made sure we had a comfortable stay. Rooms were... More

Wanted to thank the owner and her staff for a wonderful wedding weekend. Everything was amazing, can not say enough good things about the food and service. Looking forward to the next function at the Castle Manor Inn!!!
