We made a last minute trip to Gloucester area without a reservation. Late in the season many places were closed so were not expecting much. The check-in staff friendly with good suggestions for dinner. Our room was huge, overlooking the water with nice balcony, table and chairs. Great spot to watch the sunset. Room had frig for our goodies and... More

My wife and I spent several days here, and enjoyed our stay very much,.Try and get a room in the two story building on the far right, not the ones over the carports. They are much nicer and have a better view of the water. The free breakfast is excellent and we met some very interesting fellow travelers over coffee... More

Wonderful place to stay! On checking in - spur of the moment - we were told of the different room rates, what we chose was not available so they upgraded us to a gorgeous sea-view room at no extra cost - but once we got into the room we would have gladly paid full price!! The room was massive! The... More

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.
