just got home from spending 4 days and 3 nites at this beautiful clean well run Inn. have to say the views of the sunrise over the ocean in the morning are worth the price of admission alone!! We stayed in a double queen room on the second floor and we loved it. bathrooms are a smidge small and the... More

There were five of us three adults and two children. All of us had a great time. there is always some minor thing that could be improved, but the accommodations, staff, amenities, ocean view and atmosphere overshadows any possible fault one might find. This was our second consecutive year - first visit was twenty years ago.

Lovely accomodations and views, most inviting. Very peaceful and simply beautiful. Directly across the lane is the ocean and its magical in the moonlight. Also radiant at breakfast with the shining sun. We happened to be there during an evening storm and it was just beautiful watching the waves crash on the rocks. A must visit place, and we will...

For over $ 300 per night, you would expect larger and better appointed bathrooms, reliable internet and TV, and far better breakfast quality. Very clean facility and a generally pleasant, friendly staff. However, seek your restaurant advice elsewhere. With a few easy tweaks, it could be a nicer place to stay.

After having read all the reviews and done a thorough investigation we decided to book here overnight on our road trip up north tomMaine, NH and Vermont. We had flown in from Niagara Falls to Boston and drove along the coastal line, a long long day, we were tired and had high expectations of this place. Checking in was alright,... More

We just returned home from a stay at Bass Rocks Ocean Inn and we can't stop thinking about it. 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, refrigerators, comfortable beds and fluffy soft... More

This is our third time back here. The rooms are very clean. The view is amazing. Breakfast is included and it is wonderful. The location is on the ocean but near everything it has a beautiful pool. Also a pool table in. The main house

My husband and I really liked the Bass Rock Ocean Inn. Its location on the easternmost edge of Gloucester, directly on the Atlantic Ocean simply can’t be beat. The front of the hotel is quite lovely to look at (the back, which borders on a golf course, looks more like a motel but it’s not a big deal). The rooms... More

Lovely property, unforgettable views, friendly staff and guests as well. Varying age groups.Listened to the waves all night. Rocky coastline directly accross from Inn. Loved the pool surrounded by glass so you could still see and hear the waves. Breakfast included freshly baked goods, main house is a beautiful historic building, pool table and small collection of magazines and books... More

One of the nicest Inns we've stayed at. We stayed in the main Inn in a suite and you couldn't ask for anything better. The bed was very comfortable and the pillows were not the uncomfortable foam type. The television was a great size, around 46" so we were very pleased to be able to watch the Sox games at... More
