My husband and I stayed at Bass Rocks Ocean Inn 6/24-6/27/15, during St. Peter's Fiesta. I was born in Gloucester and left at a young age. This was a return to my Gloucester paradise. The hotel is situated along the back shore of the rocky coast of Gloucester. We requested and got the room we last stayed in. It was... More

We had originally planned to stay at the Bass Rocks Ocean Inn for two nights during our New England road trip but we extended our stay for an extra night because we love it here. The views are fantastic. The rooms are average in size but very comfortable and have everything necessary for a wonderful stay. The king size beds... More

Second stay here and loved it just as much. Last time I stayed in an Oceanfront House double queen on the second floor; this time a second flour Seaview king. Each has advantages and both were comfortable and really clean, with terrific views of the ocean. I do recommend trying to stay upstairs for better view and orivacy but if... More

I can't wait to go back. The view is indescribably beautiful. The rooms are awesomely clean and decorate nicely. The staff is great. The weather was perfect while we were there the 2nd week of June. The balconies are not private - more like a long veranda but each room has its own furniture and we never saw anyone else... More

Just came back from spending 3 nights at Bass Rocks Ocean Inn in Gloucester. What a beautiful place! This is the cleanest hotel we've ever stayed in. Staff was so friendly and helpful ... especially Donna since we talked with her the most. Management was great and handled an unexpected occurrence with a great deal of calmness. Terrific breakfast every... More

I had not done any advance research on lodging in Gloucester or Cape Ann area, and was pleasantly surprised when we found this beautifully restored Inn and motor lodge on Atlantic st nestled among huge seaport mansions. Everything was perfect and the staff couldnt have been nicer or more helpful. So many extra touches put this place a step above... More

My family and I just returned home from our week long stay at the Bass Rocks Ocean Inn. I highly recommend staying here. The hotel was very clean, and the staff was all extremely friendly! Relaxing by the fire pit in the evening was so peaceful. I couldn't have asked for a better place to stay.

I wanted to believe that the Inn looked like the pictures on TripAdvisor and on the internet but we all know that is not true. Except for this Inn! Every picture, photo, whether by professionals or travelers is on point! The views are spectacular; sunrise especially from your balcony. Staff is friendly, courteous, warm and inviting. The beds were so... More

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
