I probably would have given Bass Rocks five stars but for the fact that we ran out of hot water during a shower and the management's response was, "Oh, well we were full last night." The rooms are nice. Decent furniture and beds. The ocean view is incredible! And breakfast is great...make sure that you try the lemon poppyseed cake.

First, let me say it's really tough for me to give 5s so this place is probably more like a 4.5. The property itself is a converted motel, but the rooms are very nice, clean, and well thought out. The bed was incredibly comfortable with a fantastic mattress topper and there was a nice table in the room that we... More

Just returned home from a stay at Bass Rocks Ocean Inn and I can't stop thinking about it. I want to live there. The Inn is spotless and the rooms are so comfortable with the most breathtaking view of the Atlantic Ocean. The staff couldn't be friendlier or more helpful. The rooms are equipped with a coffee maker and our... More

Looking at the pictures and reviews we decided to choose this place for one night, our first night after our flight, to rest and recoup. Arriving in the first part of June it was warm, about 75 and we looked forward to A/C and peace and quiet. Upon our arrival and on the way to our room we could hear... More

Right on the ocean--and a gorgeous view! Next to a beautiful beach. Free bicycles great for eploring. Nice people. Excellent food. Nice area to walk around or ride around--but especially to relax and stroll on the beach!

Beautiful views! Great service, clean updated rooms. The covered patio on the second floor was a great addition to an already nice room. Sun rise is spectacular from the patio view. Smell the salty air from the Atlantic ocean which is just across the lazy beach front road. The hospitality of the staff is wonderful. Once checked in ( which... More

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
