My husband and myself just came back from a 7 night stay at the crows nest whilst visiting my old high school friends in Gloucester. The room and bathroom were both clean and contained everything we needed. The maid came to clean daily (although we were usually having a lie in so just asked her to leave clean towels 😉).... More

Stayed at the Crow's Nest with my daughter. We were going out on the Cape Ann Whale Watch. Location could not have been better, right across the street from each other. Crow's Nest is friendly and very basic, they have shampoo in the bathroom and a TV, that's it. They do straighten the bed and bring clean towels each day.... More

We were at first pleased to make a reservation at the popular Crow's Nest. Made the map due to the movie, The Perfect Storm. There is no on site parking, you have to park on the street wherever and whenever a spot opens up. We were told that they become more available as the night goes on. We had a... More

My wife and I recently stayed a couple of nights in Gloucester before heading to Boston for a couple Red Sox games. We are from North Carolina so one could imagine the conversations we had with the locals about our accents!! Everyone at the Crows Nest on the day we went were locals but us and we were made to...

My second time here. Wife was a bit apprehensive, her first time. However, she enjoyed it as well. Rooms are very basic but clean. Bed was just O.K. and we slept like babies. Room comes with a fridge and has good heating control. Can't beat the location of this hotel on the harbour. The great bar downstairs is a bonus.... More

The Crow's Nest is quite a novelty, best known as the Locals Pub as depicted in the film, the Perfect Storm. The service was good, the rooms were clean and everyone was friendly. This Labor Day weekend was the 30th Annual Schooner Festival and there were few places willing to accept a one night reservation. Even if they were willing... More

The booking and check in were supremely uncomplicated - a phone call, and that was it, and we were able to book for one night, which most other places didn't allow. The area is a bit down at heel (though it's only a few minutes walk to the centre of town), and the rooms are uninspiring. It's clean, but the... More

My husband and I stayed at the Crow's Nest during a one night stop in Gloucester. I chose this place because it did not require a 2-night minimum stay, it was near downtown, it was inexpensive and it was a novelty. We arrived on a Friday afternoon and had to drive around the very hilly, narrow block until we found... More

For $65-75 a night you can get a sweet, sound, warm, clean room with a view of the water in Gloucester's working harbor. In New England, such low prices for overnight lodgings are almost unheard of! (unlike out West). The Crow's Nest looks like it might be divey and seedy but it isn't: these are simple accommodations but they are... More

My partner and I stayed here for 2 nights in late August. We wanted to visit Gloucester, but were finding it hard to get a reasonably price room. Read the reviews and thought we'll give it a try. The Crow's Nest is situated on a fairly busy road, but we had a room on the 2nd floor at the back.... More
