Had a one night stay with my wife. The Inn is located just out of town but was only a 30 min walk to the centre. The room was fine, lovely and warm, great sea views. Coffee facilities on site but breakfast is taken at another inn in town, that didin't inconvenience us, we ate at a local diner. Parking... More

Feels like you can touch the water yet there's no access, we had the first floor room where we could hear the footsteps upstairs and didn't feel secure since the front door was left open at night, the drapes when drawn covers the window air conditioning. Keurig coffee maker shared by all rooms was not working. Breakfast at a different... More

This place is right on the ocean at Rockport--itself a busy little New England sea port. The views are stunning and this must be the only reason you come here. The manger, Randy, is extremely pleasant and knowledgeable if somewhat pedantic in explaining the many rules. There are some SERIOUS problems though 1] VERY LIMITED facilities-no dining room, Breakfasts have... More

We stayed at this hotel for one night on our way back to Boston from Vermont really because of the previous reviews. Whilst the hotel was adequate, that was just about it. It had no dining or eating facilities (we did know that before our visit) and the room we were in was very noisy due to guests in the... More

We stayed in Donald McKay room on first floor which was clean and nicely decorated. The view was amazing!! It was so peaceful and we left the window open and could hear the waves crashing on shore all night long. Rockport is beautiful and shops and restaurants are only about a mile away. There are only 4 parking spots in... More

Our room was very spacious, and had a fantastic view of the Atlantic Ocean. Nice amenities, and the owner Randy was always available for any extra needs we might have. If you have ever dreamed of being by the water, then the Quarterdeck Inn is the place to stay.

Our stay here was amazing. Randy, our host, was so welcoming and friendly. He was very helpful in recommending restaurants and things to do in the area since this was our first time in Rockport. My husband and I stayed in room 42 (the Oriental) over Labor Day weekend. The room had a large picture window overlooking the ocean that... More

My husband and I loved staying at the Quarterdeck Inn. Our room was large, well appointed and very comfortable. The water was past the rocky shore about 200 feet from our large picture window. We could sit on the lovely expanse of lawn or watch the birds and boats from the upholstered chairs in our room. Breakfast was a short... More

My sister and I shared a four-day vacation break at the Quarterdeck and chose it because of the views in the photos. We weren't disappointed. This tiny inn sits as close to the edge of the Atlantic as possible without toppling in. Sitting in the bed in the evening, you don't even see the land and can imagine that you're... More
