I love staying here! Last time I was here was several year ago. My room is lovely. Very clean Ocean view Staff professional Yummy breakfasts Love having a balcony facing the ocean, which is one reason I keep coming back. I prefer balconies with privacy, but my neighbors have not been intrusive at all. Will definitely return.

This is the most beautiful place to stay. The facilities are maintained impeccably. The staff is friendly and they prepare a beautiful continental breakfast with freshly baked goods and everything you could want to drink. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a peaceful, restful place.

The property was very nice. The view from all rooms is beautiful. The pool is nice and well maintained. The town of Gloucester was quaint. The rooms are ok - very clean with a nice area to sit outside. Breakfast buffet was well stocked and the staff made sure everyone has what they needed.

Extraordinary views in a very relaxed and kind environment. The Inn is positioned so there's lovely sunrise in morning and lovely moonlit ocean at night. Breakfast is served until late. This photo of their homemade blueberry muffins kinda summarizes the kind gentleness of the place. One of the things I really like about this place is that they hire local... More

As a flight attendant I have stayed in hotels the past 30 years. My children and I decided on a "staycation" this summer. We live on the ocean, 30 minutes north and vacationed in our backyard. It was the best hotel stay. The cleanliness, pride and friendliness was above any expectations. We will be back again to vacation in our... More

Just got back from here after spending 5 nights. Spotlessly clean, beautiful location, bikes great to use, breakfasts really good. The only thing I could say slightly negative was that the balconies are all joined together and the non smoking policy applies here. This is my first review I've done on Trip Advisor as I really wanted to recommend this... More

My daughter and I enjoyed a long weekend at Bass Rocks Ocean Inn. I was impressed with the cleanliness of the entire setting. The views of the ocean are stunning! There is a beautiful, flat sidewalk that allows for wonderful walks along the shore. Good Harbor Beach is a short walk away. The daily breakfast (included in the cost) was... More

Beautiful ocean views with large pool and hot tub. Fall asleep to waves crashing and wake up to Starbucks coffee and fresh muffins. Rooms are very clean with comfortable beds. Hotel staff very friendly. Newly renovated fire pit. Great recipe for a relaxing time.

You said it! Our key goal is to make your vacation as relaxing as possible, from the fire pit in the evening, the breakfast to start your day, to the heated pool and hot tub and bikes to use to fill the holes in your plans.

Booked a 5 night stay at this beautiful property. Room was nicely decorated and the grounds around the building are immaculate. The breakfast buffet provided many choices. It was nice being only minutes from downtown. The walking and biking paths are at your front door as well as Good Harbor Beach within walking distance.

Five nights is definitely a good amount of time to spend in Gloucester to see everything the city has to offer! And to fit in some relaxation time! If you found any great walking areas or things to see, let us know! We would love to pass it on to others as they join us. We are happy to know... More
