My husband and I spent a wonderful weekend at the Vista Motel recently. A prime consideration for choosing this motel is because it is dog friendly. There are a series of rooms designated for people traveling with pets. Ours was perfect. First, the room was very spacious: two large, comfortable beds and a great heating unit to dry our damp...

My wife and I recently stayed at the Vista Dec. 30-Jan 4. We frequently visit Gloucester for fun and on business. We always stay at the Vista and consider it our home away from home. You should too and here is why; every one there from the owners to the cleaning ladies, the desk people and the maintenance staff are... More

First and foremost, I will agree, that the staff at the Vista are very lovely people. I have stayed at this property, by necessity, three times over the last three years. Twice at Christmas-time and once in late September. There is not a single 3+ star property in the Gloucester area, which is a crying shame in my humble opinion.... More

We have stayed at the Vista a dozen times over the past 10 years. A great experience!!! The view cannot be compared, the Vista is on top of a hill overlooking Good Harbor Beach... wonderful "vista" of the sea grass land, beach and ocean. Excellent and friendly staff; very clean and comfortable rooms, plenty of room to park. One of... More

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
