Reservations were lost. Electronic door keys failed to work three times in three days, Door connecting adjoining rooms had to be unlocked and forced open. Lots of noise from adjacent rooms and people moving through the halls. Staff responded well to problem areas.

We only went to the restaurant here. We each had a beer and shared the bowl of calm chowder. The chowder was terrific. Our waiter was great and we enjoyed our quick stop. They also have a bar area set up beside the indoor pool. They have a large parking lot, the restaurant was very clean and the bathrooms were... More

This large complex is located on an inlet overlooking a yacht basin. The rooms are spacious, clean yet a bit dated. The walls are thin in that you can hear people talking in surrounding rooms and listen to what sounds like every door close in the building. The floors are very squeaky with every foot step from the room above... More

Most of the places are closed for the season in Glucester. This resort was opened and filled with families. The resort has a nice indoor pool and restaurant. Decor was ok. Recent renovation and ample parking makes this a good affordable place. Wifi was very slow.

Firstly and very positively, the check-in and check-out staff were incredibly nice, professional, and helpful. I really appreciate that kind of personal touch. It's nice to have a water view but really, how much can you enjoy it when the windows are too high to look out from bed or desk bench and there are outside decks so people can... More

We stayed here during a recent visit to MA to whale watch. It was about a 5 minute drive to Gloucester MA. The resort is a bit dated but we were satisfied for our one night stay. Being next to the Marina was beautiful. The rooms needed a little TLC, some deep cleaning of bathroom needed- tiles in tub little... More

In Gloucester, there are several hotels right on the ocean, or right across the street from the ocean, with views of crashing surf, and prices to match. But there are not many places overlooking Gloucester Harbor, which I think is a much more interesting sight. Cape Ann Marina overlooks its own little harbor, and it is a very pretty sight.... More

So the room was clean and big enough, looked right out on the river, had access to a nice pool, and was comfortable, though without a reading light. There was one young lady who came around once and offered everyone in the pool space lemon water...that was perhaps the nicest part of our stay. Despite the fact that it is... More

Stayed here with my family in November a few years ago. The facilities are nice and I went swimming in their pool. I liked walking out the back door onto the porch which overlooked the river. Easy to get in and out.

This was not my choice but my husband thought it might be fun. The advertisements looked good. It wasn't. Room needed a major upgrade. The women who checked us in gave us no information about the hotel and acted like we were put thing her out. Rather a raunchy crowd at the hotel. I'm sure there are much better hotels... More
