Just returned from a wonderful weekend at the Vista. Outstanding view of the ocean. Welcoming, friendly, and clean. Includes continental breakfast and no hidden extras. It is a welcome alternative to chains.

The Vista Motel sits above Good Harbor Beach on Cape Ann with a great view of the beach and ocean. It is within walking distance although if you have a lot of beach gear you would want to park down the hill at the town beach parking area. It is an easy drive to Rockport and downtown Gloucester. The rooms... More

This place is great. It's located across from Good Harbor Beach and between two walkable shopping malls plus a restaurant. The staff is wonderful and very welcoming. Open all year round: awesome!!!!!!

We spent 3 nights here in August, and it was delightful! The view is spectacular and the place is spotless! A nice continental breakfast is provided, with nice seating outside to enjoy the view. It is not a new property but it is well maintained.

My husband and I did a random road trip from Michigan to the East Coast over Labor Day weekend. No reservations--just drove. We ended up in Gloucester. Not a good idea to not have a reservation on a holiday weekend. But as luck would have it, someone was canceling their reservation when I called to see if they had a... More

My 90 year old mother and I stayed at Vista Motel recently in August. We had a room on the first floor that overlooked Good Harbor Beach, a beautiful view!! We had great weather during our stay. The room was very clean. There was a small kitchenette which we didn't use but would be good for a family who might... More

I loved my stay at the Vista Motel. The view alone is worth the $ spent. I stayed 4 nights there in August and was very happy with the location of the room, the cleanliness of the room, and the convenience of having a microwave, coffee maker, refrigerator, stove top, dishes, glasses, utensils, wifi, HD TV, and comfortable beds. Every... More

By that I mean the rooms are clean and comfortable and have wifi and TV and other amenities, nothing fancy but very comfortable. My friends and I usually double up and then we hold... More

You folks always make my stay memorable. You are simply the incomparable!! New England charm at its best! meticulously maintained property with really friendly staff. Rooms are as spotless as the grounds, reasonably priced and all served up with a nice pool and outstanding vistas. I have stayed at bass rocks before and I can say that property while very... More
