We absolutely loved the place. Drove by and spontaneously decided to spend the night. Very lovely service with freshly baked cookies and free Starbucks coffee all day long. We stayed at a King Room which was of good proportions. Bathroom is a little small, but acceptable. You can use their hot tub and their fireplace - a lot of fun,... More

This hotel is very grand looking from the outside but inside it is a very comfortable and welcoming. The beds are very comfortable, the room very clean and a patio door to the terrace, which has chairs and a table, is a bonus. The only downside is that the bathroom is very small, however, how much time do you spend... More

"Inn" has 3 buildings for room options. We chose to stay in room on ground floor with a patio. Although very clean& newly renovated it still felt like a motel. Did not take advantage of pool, hot tub, or fire pit, but looked great. "+" : great location across from water , free cruiser bike and suggested bike ride was... More

Bass Rocks sits peacefully between the Atlantic and a golf course. Excellent ocean view, comfortable and clean rooms, close to town and the rest of Cape Ann. You can count on a warm, caring and knowledgeable staff. They get it- they know what to do make your stay special. We splurged to stay here and it was worth it. You... More

As a guy who spent his early life living less than a half a mile from this motel it is a joy to come back "home" to such a great place to stay (when all the rooms at home are full). This is a very, very well run independent motel on the ocean. The rooms are clean and well appointed... More

We enjoy staying at the Inn. The views are breathtaking, service stupendous. This place is clean, and updated. New heated pool over looking the Atlantic Ocean. A nightly fire in the fire pit provides a great atmosphere. Gas grills available of you want to cook out- a super amenity especially for a budget conscious night of fun. Bicycles available too...

This was our first trip to the New England area. We stayed at Bass Rocks Inn the second week in September. The weather was still beautiful in the low 80’s, better than here in Chicago. They have an outdoor pool that they kept open due to the nice weather. They also have a large fire pit that guests could enjoy... More

Picked as a journey breaker, the Bass Rocks is justifiably proud of its views, only slightly marred by a road, of the Atlantic. Our welcome was friendly and efficient, including the provision of free cider and cookies! Our room was in the motel part of the hotel. Ground floor with a patio leading across lawn and road to the rocks... More
