My wife and I booked Bass Rock Inn for two nights, fell in love with this place and stayed two extra nights instead of going on to Cape Cod. We found this place on Tripadvisor and we couldn't have been more pleased. I don't understand the negative reviews as everyone from housekeeping to the front desk were very friendly and... More

this hotel was a real surprise. I booked a two night stay, part business part pleasure and brought my daughter with me. it looked a bit like a motel from the back but the front view over the rocky coast was beautiful. the rooms were comfortable and nicely appointed but not luxurious. I loved the heated pool, hot tub, fire... More

We normally stay at a much cheaper place in Rockport when we visit Cape Ann - this time it was sold out probably for a wedding so we chose Bass Rocks Inn. A few things - service is wonderful - cookies and tea in the afternoon, beautiful breakfasts with fresh baked goods and fruit plus eggs, cheeses etc. very, very... More

Every room has an incredible view of the ocean. The newly renovated pool and large hot tub are fantastic! They also added an awesome fire pit! The Billiard room rocks! A must stay place if ever in Gloucester.

This is a friendly, welcoming property right across from the water. If you tire of watching the waves or walking along the water to Good Harbor Beach, the property offers bikes, DVDs, billiards, etc. Most of the property is a motel, complete with parking along the back and tiers of rooms opening right onto the parking lot or the second-floor...

This hotel was great! The location is beautiful right ok the rocky beach along scenic drive. Sunrise every morning right over the ocean, right from your picture windows in the room! Breakfast and coffee/cookies come with your stay. Good breakfast right in the sunroom of the historic house. Heated pool and and fire pit turned on every night. Suites above... More

This property has a great ocean view and all the amenities you may want. The staff is especially friendly and helpful. At check in, there are fresh cookies, coffee and tea, or hot apple cider. The cider was great. We chose a room on the 2nd (top) floor and I'm so glad because the view was better. The room was... More

We enjoyed being able to see the ocean from our room, but it was really delightful watching the waves crash on shore while we were eating breakfast (blueberry muffins were fantastic), and playing pool. Stayed in the Ocean Front house. LCD TV was huge and they offer free movie rental. Golf course is directly behind hotel, so golfing is readily... More

This is a great place to stay! We only stayed here for one night, but right from the start it was a good experience. The receptionist upon check-in knew who we were and was very friendly. There were chocolate chip cookies, coffee, tea, and hot chocolate available in the lobby. I always think that is a nice touch. We had... More
