We booked the Vista Motel based on recommendations here. Overall very happy with our stay rooms are clean though mattress, pillows, and bathroom were dated. View was stunning and we enjoyed afternoons sitting on the porch and relaxing, the grounds are kept immaculate and it is obvious great care is taken in landscaping. Good Harbor Beach is only about a 1/4 mile down the road with sidewalks the entire way. Breakfast has the most delicious donuts and coffee. Downtown Gloucester is only a few miles away with lots of restaurants and fun things to explore. We would return to the Vista again.

Room tip: We stayed in the King Deluxe on the 2nd floor at the end, great spot on the corner the view was awesome

I was initially skeptical about all the good reviews because the photos showed a very ordinary looking motel. I wondered if I was being scammed, but made a reservation anyway.
The place really is a motel, but what the photos don't show is the immaculate landscaping, how clean everything is, how inviting the pool, how great the view is, and how helpful the staff is. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our three-day stay.

Just returned from a weekend trip to the Vista. What a great location and wonderful place to stay. The view from the property is beautiful. We were in a perfect spot to walk the beach and be close to town for the whale watch tour. The staff was very friendly and the breakfast each morning was a great start to our day.
I look forward to my next stay!

Awesome view over the salt marshes and Good Harbour Beach from the balcony of your room.
Great location just 10 minutes easy walk to the beach ( with no bugs).
Close to Gloucester, Rockport and easy access to other towns on Cape Ann.
Short walk to a large supermarket.
Well stocked efficiency unit.
Very clean with good maid service.
Very friendly and helpful staff
Hard to beat !

Room tip: Rooms non 46-48 have the best views in my opinion.

just got back from spending four days at the vista with my friend. this place is great because it is obvious the owners really care that their guests have all they need to have a great time. rooms are spotless...all the help is very pleasant and the price is reasonable. i booked late and got the last room. it was lovely and. the balconey looked out to Good Harbor Beach accross the street. i will definately stay there again.
