Reviewed October 13, 2012

We loved our stay at the Bass Rocks Inn. The location is amazing--right on the ocean. Rooms have an ocean view from a large shared balcony. The warm hospitality of the staff made us feel welcomed and comfortable. The Inn also provides a good breakfast, free WIFI, free use of bicycles, and free access to a large DVD collection. Our stay at Bass Rocks Inn was the highlight of a 2 1/2 week New England trip.

Loved our stay at the Bass Rocks. Great staff, lovely big room and amazing view our of our large patio doors. The only thing to bear in mind is the balconies and patios out the patio doors are all shared and not very private. It is also quite pricey.

But, if you want a lovely room with a view and a great breakfast its the place for you.

Room Tip: A room on the second floor would give the best views.

Found Bass Rocks Ocean Inn on the web from an Internet search. The photos and description of the Inn gave us the confidence to book. When we arrived, the young man checked us in was engaging and funny. He could work at a 5 star hotel. The view from the inn was matched by the inn's hospitality. We didn't check out until the last second, we were sitting on the balcony and enjoying the world class view. Can't wait to return

The Bass Rocks Ocean Inn is great hotel - perhaps the best in Gloucester.
It's location on the ocean is beautiful - great views, but also convenient to town.
The hotel staff is very friendly and helpful.
Breakfast is included - more than adequate.
They also have free bikes available - and DVDs.
The rooms are quite comfortable - and include a refrigerator.

Room Tip: The "Oceanfront House" on the first floor is probably the best deal. But the suites in th...

Just about a year between visits and things are still great at Bass Rocks! We took advantage of their midweek package that gives you a 4th night free after booking 3 nights. I knew that 3 nights wouldn't be enough, so the 4th was a real treat. We had just driven in from a disappointing stay in Bar Harbor, paying top dollar for an overrated Hotel. Arriving at Bass Rocks and being greated very enthusiastically by Brandon at the front desk was like a breath of fresh (Gloucester!) air. We were fortunate to get our favorite room (210) that was so inviting and sparkling clean. The Housekeeping Staff at Bass Rocks deserves many compliments for how hard they work and the good job that they do. We always look forward to the nice breakfast waiting for us in the mornings. Just sitting, relaxing and looking out at the ocean first thing is the perfect way to start a day. The Staff is extremely eager to answer any questions, give directions or just help in any way they can. The lemonade and fresh baked cookies in the afternoon are too good to pass up. Bass Rocks has a wonderful location, close to Rockport and downtown Gloucester, but our favorite has to be Good Harbor Beach, a short distance away. For all dog lovers, after September 15th, you can go to Good Harbor, sit down and watch the happiest dogs on earth get together and run through the sand and water with their pals. We are already looking forward to next year, or maybe we'll even get there sooner. It's a lovely place to relax and listen to the waves right outside your terrace door.

We had a room near the pool on the first floor with a king size bed and everything about it was great. The view from the patio was beautiful and it's worth waking up early to catch the sunrise out front. The staff was very helpful with any questions we had and the breakfast was quite good. Having bikes available at any time was also very nice for a ride down to the beach or even downtown Gloucester. Very comfortable bed as well, and the free wifi worked perfectly.

I totally agree with all the positive comments posted. We spent 3 delightful days at this property, wished it could have been longer, but are already anticipating a return visit. The location is superb, rooms are spacious and well appointed, breakfast was just too good and all staff we met were absolutely wonderful. We did not mind not having a "private" patio as for us, part of traveling is meeting and chatting with fellow travelers.
