I have to admit that I was disappointed when we arrived at The Atlantis Oceanfront Inn to discover that it is essentially an aging motor lodge with a fresh coat of paint. Given the rates, I was not expecting all of the rooms opening onto the parking area on the backside and onto a shared balcony on the frontside. Entering the room added to my disappointment with a dated decor and furnishings (other than the new LCD television with satellite).
But, after my initial disappointment, I did recognize that the spacious room (and the motel in general) was spotlessly clean. The balcony allowed for an amazing view across the street of the Atlantic Ocean, with Bass Rocks in the foreground. You could even see the twin lighthouses of Thacher Island in the distance. The location made for a great base camp for exploring Gloucester, Rockport and other surrounding towns.
The motel also has a breakfast cafe (not included in the room rate) that offered a nice variety of tasty and filling options to start the day.
So, Atlantis Oceanfront Inn makes for a clean and convenient option with great views. However, I feel it is overpriced given the motor lodge design and dated furnishings.
