Nothing to dislike!
Everything was wonderful. The staff was so pleasant and accommodating.setting was exceptional and breakfast was plentiful. It was a memorable stay.
There were no negatives.
Rooms are clean & comfortable. The attention to detail and great customer service really sets this family owned hotel apart. The view of the ocean is unsurpassed. Making my reservations for a return summer visit in 2015 already!
the friendly service included breakfast the fireplace in the garden
I loved the location right on the ocean. You could not beat the view! Also, a quick drive and we were in Gloucester and Rockport. I loved taking the harbor boat tour free with my Bass Rocks room verification. The staff was very friendly and the pool area and fire pit encouraged guests to mingle and get to know one another. I enjoyed having my own balcony to sit out on to enjoy the view. The breakfasts were plentiful.
There isn't a beach with the hotel. You either have to walk about 20 minutes to the nearest beach, or drive. But parking is very limited near the beach and many, many people come from all over to go to that beach. The breakfast every day was good, except they only offered hard boiled eggs, not hot cooked. Also, cubed cheese I thought was strange. My husband complained that the mattress was too soft for his back. I didn't have an problem with it, however,.
The ocean view, the location, fire pit, new pool and lovely old world charm.
The staff is friendly. It is such a peaceful setting. The location is perfect. A favorite location for our family.
There really isn't anything we'd comment as a "not like". We find the Bass Rocks Ocean Inn perfect for us.
Bass Rocks Inn is just what we were looking for. The views are amazing, the staff is friendly and pleasant, and the entire property is immaculate! We are booking next year's getaway here for sure!
I like the old pool set up, it looks too modern for the facility. Pool should be open later.
Mattress on couch needs replacing
Location. Pool and Jacuzzi were nice. Spacious rooms.
Breakfast was just ok.
We loved the homey atmosphere, especially as we sat out by the fire drinking hot chocolate and munching on the freshly baked cookies. It was a beautiful night in a beautiful place.
The hotel feels like a stately bed and breakfast. The room is very large and even though the hotel has a historical feel, it is very well cared for and doesn't feel or look tired. The heated pool is a plus and the fire pit is wonderful for enjoying morning breakfast in comfy chairs or evening tea, both complimentary. We enjoyed the breakfast and found the selection of fresh fruit, breads , cereals, yogurts and juices to be perfect and refreshed often. The setting is magnificent and an awesome backdrop for photos which we took before sunset while sitting on the rocks in front of the ocean right across the street from the hotel
The view, the friendly staff, the comfortable beds and linens.
I was looking forward to swimming laps in your enlarged pool. I found it difficult to swim in the pool given a family with children who considered the pool their own space. The kids repeatedly jumped or swam in front of me. Also, one of the children was jumping off the handrail of the handicapped ramp.
The breakfast with homemade muffins and breads, coffee, bagels, etc... was outstanding! To be able to sit and eat it there in the room overlooking the ocean was terrific! The hotel had an outstanding pool and firepit which we enjoyed. Located close to town as well... not to walk but a 5 to 10 minute ride
For some reason the room was very wet! The carpet felt wet! For the money they charge even with the location I would expect not to have that! Also, clearly they are trying to use all their space the best they can but the bathroom could use some more shelves.
The Inn has a spectacular spot on the ocean, beautiful views from all rooms. The staff does a wonderful job of keeping all areas spotless, rooms, pool and pool area,and dining room, The fire pit is a great spot to sit at night. Plenty to see and do in the Gloucester area. We will definitely making a return trip.
I can't think of one thing I didn't like.
Staff, location, fire pit, pool and ocean front walkway/view. The Gloucaster area has a lot of options.
Bed not as comfortable, seemed to sink at the sides. Small room.
Location, is great. Recently updated, but kept the charm of what has been there since I first visited 40 years ago. Blueberry muffins at the continental breakfast and the Verona Coffee!
A bit high price wise
The morning sunrise and evening sunset was incredible along with the view. The continental breakfast was all homemade and excellent blueberry muffins
Pool was very clean. Room was well appointed and clean. Location was ideal. Lovely aesthetics.
Had a recurring issue with card key not opening door. The clerk at the desk who was there when I checked in, and saw me at breakfast, had me go back out to my car to have to provide my license. i would understand a security concern, but since I was obviously a guest this was rather annoying. No apology by that person for the inconvenience at all. I was very upset and was tempted to leave as a result. All other aspects were outstanding, but it is very important to treat guests with great consideration, and this was in my opinion a faux pas. It was how it was handled that irked me.
The view, the location, the enormous, comfortable bed and multiple pillows.
You can still tell it was built as a motel!
Room was goood and staff very helpful
Breakfasts are very poor. Tinned fruit not expected at this standard of hotel. Pool gets noisey with loud children so pool area can be noisey for reading and quiet relaxation.
Love the spacious comfortable room with glorious view of ocean.
The view of the guests' laundry draped on balcony railing and patio furniture directly in our view.
The view, the golf place adjacent to the hotel, the way to the small city, the whale watching tour on Sunday morning, the lobsters in the city, especially in Gloucester House, the fieste die San Pietro and the greasy pole
I could swim in the ocean, there was no possibility to enter the sea
Unbeatable location and a staff that consistently went above and beyond. We've gone before and we'll go Gain.
The complimentary breakfast buffet wasn't up to this hotel's high standards. The fruit was canned and tasted tinney.
