We have stayed at the Vista on vacation for the past 13 years! It is what we call kiddingly our "summer home". It is clean, well run, quiet and centrally located to any thing you may want to do - beaches, restaurants, Boston, Salem. The staff at the Vista is wonderful, the breakfast (free) is terrific and the pool is... More

We were there for three nights, altough we had planned to stay for just one! The staff was very friendly and helpful. The internet was very fast and we had a magnificent view over the ocean,a good super market is very near, we definitely recommend this place and will hopefully come again!

Been staying here for the last month while our parent company is refurbishing a seafood processing plant in the Blackburn Industrial Park. Nice rooms and very accommodating staff. The views overlooking Good Harbor Beach and the ocean are awesome. Excellent restaurants and shopping opportunities abound.

I am only allowed to re review a hotel after some time has past. I don't really spend time looking up the rules but I have tried and been unable. I see I can now post about the Vista Motel again. Wow! So much fun now having watched my son go from being a baby at the pool to having... More

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
