We stayed here a couple of days ago for 2 nights. We love this place. We have stayed here in the past and when in Gloucester, this is the best. We have traveled around the country and we found The Vista to be one of the cleanest and friendliest places that we have stayed. Thanks again. The Hastings

Because that's what we did. We stopped about a mile or two south at a lovely hotel right on the road across from the ocean. Best rate for a weekday was $259!!! We opened tripadvisor, recognized the Vista Motel we just drove by, saw the ratings and turned around. We paid about 1/2 the price, gorgeous views, very clean, nice... More

We often opt for the pricier hotels and always shy away from anything that has the word "Motel" in the title. Friendly greeting upon arrival, very clean room. Much cheaper than our original booking at a B&B 3 miles away that was cancelled due to being overbooked, Free wi-fi, local and long distance calling was great but unnecessary for us... More

Vista Motel served our purpose beautifully...comfortable bed, view of the beach and water from up on a hill across the road, friendly and helpful staff. Sitting on the terrace with a nice glass of wine watching the evening lights reflected on the water was a calming experience. The location was perfect, between the beautiful harbor towns of Gloucester and Rockport.... More

This is a simple little appartment hotel with friendly helpful staff. Great views a room with all the bits from kettle to hair dryer with outside areas with views you could watch the sun rise and the colours changing wonderfully. An easy drive to everywhere and a short walk to the most beautiful beaches. It is basic but clean and... More

Motel was a good find and pleasant place to stay. Gloucester & the surrounding towns along the coastal route makes this a lovely place to visit. Good recommendation of places from staff and we were tnot disappointed, particularly in Gloucester. Rooms were very clean and nothing was too much trouble for the staff.

We were very pleased with the Vista Motel. They were very welcoming and informative. Watching the sunrise was great! We will stay here again and hopefully it won't take another 30 years!! David & Linda

Received special and friendly service while enjoying relaxing views over the beach below. Nice accommodation at a good price. Needed to relax and also had some work to complete, so the Internet connection was also good. Plan to bring the Kids here next time we visit the US

We really feel we lucked into a wonderful experience staying here. Gloucester is charming, with shopping, the beautiful harbor area, and conveniently located to explore the Cape. The town has great restaurants that seem to stay open later than in some of the other little towns along the scenic byway. Although traffic would be an issue, my impression is that... More

We have just returned to Canada following a delightful 4 night stay at the Vista. I booked 6 weeks ahead but they were nearly full so didn't get the room I wanted, but not to worry because Room 1 was just fine. As we all know this motel is 'old' having been built over 50 years ago but that dated... More
