Nice and close to everything. The staff are very nice, helpful and friendly. We had a room that looked out to the ocean at a distance. Nice heated pool. The only thing I can say wrong about the place is rooms do not have microwave or coffee pots, but they do have small items in the office. Nice and clean...

My wife and I just stayed at the Sea Lion Motel and could not be more disappointed!!! First off, the room is literally the size of a closet!! The TV is on the side of the bed so watching TV was miserable! The bed was so hard that you'd be better off sleeping on the floor.....BUT WAIT....THERE'S NO ROOM!! And...

We just spent last weekend at this property. We required 3 separate rooms so they offered us "the house" (for not a lot more money), it was AWESOME!! We had 2 rooms with King Beds (one with a fireplace even), full kitchens, living room areas and balconies that you could see the ocean in the distance. The 3rd room was...

This is a wonderful motel with a bit of a view of Good Harbor Beach. We enjoyed our stay here and slept well. The staff is accommodating and just lovely. The rooms were pleasant, clean and comfortable. The location is great--with easy access to downtown Gloucester if you have a car. They offer a basic breakfast, nothing fancy but it...

Room was clean and bed comfortable, but there were few amenities. There was alot of stairs to our upstairs room and lousy view. There was only 2 inside tables in the tiny area in the office for the breakfast. They were both taken so we sat in the chilly air at an outside table. Very limited breakfast options.

I made my reservations on line, and got lost driving down from Portland, ME, so I called and was given excellent directions. It is an older facility, and is immaculately clean. The staff are very nice and helpful. Continental breakfast is adequate. A very nice place to stay.

We were made very welcome. The room was clean and the beds were comfortable. Only downside was a temperamental shower but that's being picky. Can recommend this as value for money. It's ideal for Gloucester, the town's a two minute ride away and there are some fantastic views.

This is a typical motel located at the outskirts of Gloucester offering standard hotel rooms as well as a number of cottages and appartment style facilities with kitchennnettes. The rooms are not particularly special but suffiiciently accomodating. We had a room at the entrance of the complex which was close to a busy street and rather noisy, even at night....

Upon check-in, we were greeted very warmly by the front desk staff. Our room was very big and very clean. We were on the upper level so could see the ocean from the balcony overlooking the pool. It is convenient to town and all it's shops and restaurants. The staff was extremely helpful with all the questions we had. We...

“Bring a plug extender/adapter - as usual for an older motel, there are not enough conveniently located outlets for chargers, etc.”

“Get a cabin, as you are secluded from the rest of the group. Second Floor rooms have a nicer view outside the room, but not life changing.”
