We're in the "old" building which has a handful of suites all looking out at the ocean. Pricey but worth it. Very helpful staff. Book whale watch and/or lobster bake thru hotel since it's cheaper than booking it yourself. Suite is spacious and well furnished. And b'fast is included and good, too.

Beautiful location and ocean views from all rooms. Hotel staff are very welcoming and accommodating. Hotel rate includes continental breakfast, bikes on premises. Walking path along ocean leads to beach less than 1/2 mile from hotel.

Been there before and we will be there again! It's a great place to stay and the staff and owner were great! The ocean is RIGHT there! You won't regret booking this place. We have stayed both 1st and 2nd floor and they were both fine.

My wife and I went to Gloucester for a weekend getaway and stayed at the inn July 18 -19, 2014. We stayed in The Seaside House. We loved the location, every room has a beautiful ocean view and a balcony with a wicker table and chairs to enjoy the view. The rooms are very clean and the staff is friendly... More

My husband and I stayed at the Bass Rocks Ocean Inn during our recent New England road trip. The room was clean, nice and had a beautiful ocean view. The bathroom was very small and a bit dated but extremely clean. The cleaning staff must have used a fabric refresher after changing the bedding. The bed smelled like "grandmas perfume... More

Amazing view, friendly and helpful staff will go the extra mile to make your stay a stay to remember, comfortable and clean rooms. Trolley stops at the front door. The property is immaculately groomed with pool and hot tub. Popular beach within walking distance.

The Bass Rocks Inn is as close as you can get to the ocean without actually getting in. You can leave your screen door open at night to hear the waves crashing against the rocks. The rooms are clean and comfortable. We had the corner room at the end, 2nd floor and the view was breathtaking. The main building which... More

I would describe Bass Rocks Inn as part hotel/part B & B. The B & B building where the office is housed is also the location of the suites which is what we reserved. Specifically, we had the suite with the arched windows. This offered an amazing view of the water and more than enough space and the right atmosphere... More
