The place is dated, though the current owner is adding improvements each year. It is comfortable and quiet (generally). The place is right on one of the best beaches in New England....not near, not across the street from, right on the beach.

We visit Gloucester quite often, & found this place this year. We usually stay at a different hotel ,that is just as lovely, but not on the beach. This is now our go to place when we visit Gloucester. We happen to love vintage hotels & inns. Yes, the furnishings are older, but the place is clean, & has that... More

The location (on the beach) and guests that go the same week as we do bring us back every year. It's not the room, or the dozen donuts at breakfast (to be shared among 40 people or so). The staff are very pleasant and do the best they can ( it's not their fault the carpet needs to be replaced).... More

Pro: On the beach, rooms are clean. Con: Room is too dark at day day time, (lamps are very decorative but worthless - poor light). At night too much light shines into the room (stayed at #3 7/24-24/2015). Every word spoken outside of the room, found it's way in too. Wifi did NOT work.

My wife and I were returning to Gloucester to run the Twin Lights Half Marathon. I hadnt found this gem last year, we stayed in Salem and parked in the beach lot for the race. This inn is but a five minute walk to the starting line which was enough to earn it 4 stars! Its an old inn, and... More

Me & my husband stayed here 3 years ago in Room 17 – beautiful room, fantastic view of the ocean. If I was reviewing that now, I’d give it 5 stars. Couldn’t wait to come back! Flash forward to summer 2014, we got room 16. Gross. Turns out they have not updated any of these rooms since the Inn was... More

The room is small but clean and has two double beds so is suited for a family of four. There is a good size refrigerator and it is air conditioned. No means to heat or cook anything except for a microwave in the office. The staff and housekeeping were very pleasant and helpful allowing our children to park at the... More

It's one of my husband and my favorite get-away places. The rooms are very clean and a good size with a refrigerator in all the rooms we've stayed in. It's a very typical beach front motel. The views of the beach are the best depending on where your room is situated and the staff can't be beat. My life-long friend... More

As the other reviewers have stated, Good Harbor Beach Inn is a modest hotel, with friendly staff and clean rooms, but the main reason people come back here year after year (and some families have been returning for 40 years!) is that you walk out your door and you're on the best beach in Gloucester. (Some would say the best... More

On Wednesday, my Wife and I decided to try our luck at booking a last minute deal on a room at Good Harbor beach in Gloucester. We have relatives who were staying at the Vista up the street, but that was booked, so I tried the Good Harbor Beach Inn. Lucky for us, there was a room available for Friday... More
