“Fabulous facility and very scenic location!”
Reviewed October 24, 2011

Bass Rocks Ocean Inn was a wonderful find. We stayed one night only and wished we could have stayed for a week. Leaving open our sliding glass doors, we could hear the sound of the waves crashing on the shore and could smell the briny sea air. A beautiful Inn (rooms are not in the Inn, but in separate, more modern buildings) where you can have a snack or enjoy plentiful complimentary continental breakfast (included in room price). Quiet room, never heard another guest, even though all rooms were occupied. Huge comfy king-sized bed and nice balcony to sit out and enjoy the spectacular ocean vistas. All in all, a wonderful place to stay and we'll be back!

My husband and I stayed in Bass Rocks Ocean Inn mid September 2011. I loved every minute of it. The service, the food, rooms, front desk women were outstanding. Hotel has bicycles to take for a ride, DVDs to watch at the end of the day, cookies to snack on and even coffee, tea and lemonade in the middle of the day for guests. Very quite and peaceful. Area is pretty and great for morning walks. There is Golf Club behind the property. Views are gorgeous. What else do you need.

Room Tip: Ocean Front House - Second floor - Patio under the roof

Bass Rocks Inn has a gorgeous view of the ocean. The main house has a wonderful breakfast room (with a really nice assortment), all glass, great views to enjoy the mornings. Also has a game room with a pool table, lots of books and a very fast computer! The staff is very friendly and helpful.

I loved our stay at the Bass Rocks Inn. The room was nicely appointed, and the view couldn't be beat. The hotel is located right on the short within a short drive - or even bike ride - to downtown Gloucester and Rockport. My husband and I stayed at Bass Rocks because some friends were getting married in Rockport. Though Bass Rocks is a bit more expensive than some other nearby hotels, you definitely get a better experience at BR. What seem to be fresh-baked cookies are in unending supply through the day. The breakfast in the morning is not exactly diverse, but is delicious and on par with many chain restaurants. The king bed was soooo comfortable. There is a DVD player and Direct TV in each room, giving one more than enough options if you decide to stay in. There are cruising bikes available for guests. I definitely recommend Bass Rocks, and if I ever find myself in the area again, I would definitely stay at Bass Rocks again.

Stayed for one night in Oct 2010 and this place was perfect, quiet location, ocean view from everywhere. Small old hotel with the best bed linens and beds, great TV, small bathrooms, but watching the sunset/sunrise from this place drinking the coffee and hot chocolate provided in the office was the closest thing to heaven. I'm going back next month and I have dreamed about this place. Great ending hotel to a busy trip! Gloucester was great, good food in town, delivery to hotel. The staff was great and they had a good little continental breakfast!!!!!!

Our 4 night stay at the beautiful Bass Rocks Inn went way too fast. The location is fantastic, close to Rockport, Essex and downtown Gloucester. The view from our terrace was breathtaking, especially at sunrise. The large room with 2 Queen beds and a sitting area was so comfortable and the staff keeps it bright and clean. Breakfast with a view, who could ask for anything more? Just maybe some bacon, but only because on our way to the Dining Room the aroma hit us - must have been from a neighboring property! What they offered for Breakfast was more than enough, and the afternoon lemonade, chocolate cookies and Starbucks coffee and teas were a real treat. Only one downside and it's not something that can be corrected - the noise from cars going by on the road kept us from leaving our terrace doors open at night, but that aside - it's a perfectly beautiful place to stay and we can't wait to return.

Room Tip: Second floor if you don't have a problem with stairs.
