We were attending a convention in Rockport and the availability and prices did not work, so, we looked outside of Rockport and found the Sea Lion Motel just 2.61 miles from the center of town. It was less expensive but matched the amenities of the more pricey place in Rockport. Wonderful people at the front desk, very helpful and the room was WONDERFUL! It is also a perfect location if you are visiting Gloucester. Don't hesitate to book at the Sea Lion Motel - you will be very pleased!

We are repeat customers. The staff was great to us. The room was clean and comfortable. The pool enjoyable and well maintained. It was an older crowd during this stay, as school was about to star, so the stay was very quiet. It's convenient to the tourist area of the town. When we return to Gloucester, we plan to stay here.

I really enjoyed staying at the Sea Lion. I have family in Gloucester. I’ve stayed here twice So far. I noticed the second time I was there things had improved. The rooms seem to have been renovated.I’m especially impressed by the friendliness of the staff. I would definitely recommend the sea lion. They made myself and my sister really feel at home.
