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

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

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 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
