Absolutely awsome. Very friendly, courteous and knowledgeable staff. Rooms are tastefully appointed. Magnificent sunrise view from the deck. Nice pool. Very peaceful. Out of the hustle and bustle of town but close enough to go out for meals.

We hadn't planned to stay but it was one of those perfect September beach days. We got the last room at the Inn. Very friendly hostess, clean and comfortable room, enjoyed the pool and later that evening the awesome view overlooking the bay. Definitely would recommend this Inn for a quiet, relaxing stay.

This is a small boutique type of motel. Only 14 units right across the street from the ocean. Rocky shorefront overlooking an island with two light houses. Very charming. Large pool and gardens. Very well run. Immaculately clean and well appointed rooms with cooking facilities. Ramped so handicapped accessible and well positioned between Gloucester and Rockport. Very quiet.

Love everything about this Inn except their smoking policy. I couldn't sit outside my room on the chairs provided, or sit at the pool to see the spectacular view because the Inn allows smoking on the the deck and at the pool. There are two designated smoking places...one at the front with a beautiful view, and one in the back... More

We didn't actually stay here so this review is based on our brief experience. Drove by on the late side (7:30) without a reservation and the sign said "vacancy" so we went in. The woman at the desk said they have one room left but that it was "next to a room with loud baby crying". Appreciate the heads up... More

I originally looked for a vacation home to rent but found this place instead. I rented two rooms cheaper than a vacation home and got a pool too. It's super clean and the staff was polite and helpful. We couldn't have asked for a better view. It only has thirteen rooms so it was really quiet and relaxing. I would... More

Loved the Gloucester Inn By The Sea. There are only 13 rooms so it was very quiet. There was a little bit of a walk to the beach but not too bad. Loved having the view of the ocean right there every morning and night! All the people in the office were very helpful and informative. The pool was great... More

Gloucester Inn by the Sea is fabulous. Clean, quiet, relaxing. It blends hotel and B&B in all the best ways. We woke up at 5 am to take in the remarkable sunrise! You can walk along the rocky shore and fill your lungs with the ocean air. The Inn is peacefull - away from the busy downtown area. In just... More
