Overlooking Good Harbor Beach in Gloucester, all rooms at the Vista Motel have ocean views. The property features a seasonal outdoor pool and each room comes with a microwave and refrigerator.
Score from 245 reviews Excellent
On Cape Ann, this Gloucester hotel features rooms with free Wi-Fi and views of the water. There is an on-site marina that has charters for fishing and whale-watching.

hostess at the desk, I don't know if she was the owner was very pleasant and helpful. Everything was clean and the accommodations were nice. I would rather stay closer to water and closer to town. All in all though, we were very satisfied and probably would go back there again. Liked there was a refrigerator in room.
Door stuck to the bathroom. Bathroom was small. Continental breakfast was limited.
Price was good. Location was cool. Had a refrigerator in the room.
Lots of hair in the shower and in the bed. The wi-fi was in and out at best. The walls are paper thin, I could hear everything the person in the next room was doing.
Staff were helpful. Near a supermarket.
Room was a little tired, could do with updating and being on ground floor, could hear noises from above rooms.
The whole experience was marvelous. Many thanks!
nice, recently renovated rooms, quiet area just out of the center of Gloucester. Clean bathroom
The rooms are a bit small, (but cosy)
Extremely clean! Rooms, grounds, pool were all very pristine and we could see the ocean across the way. The location was good and close to the town. The staff was nice and welcoming.
Compared to the price of all other hotels we stayed in on a 14 night trip, this one was the most expensive with the least amount of frills. The bed was hard and the towels were thin. The continental breakfast was slim at best.
The bed was VERY comfortable. It was very clean. Location was fine. I would stay there again.
No coffeepot in the room. The continental breakfast was very minimal.
Location was excellent--near T Wharf.
coming back from a long day out on the ocean i found the room nice and clean and a nice balcony to sit out on it was just what i needed. Thanks sea lion
Rooms were clean, pool area was great and staff very friendly.
A little over priced for a motel
The location between Gloucester and Rockport is excellent although neither is within walking distance. The staff is very helpful and friendly.
The driveway getting in and out is a bit tricky, especially at night.
Great location! Close to beaches, and they gave us a parking pass for the beach. Staff was so friendly, and the room was clean and a great size.
The only thing that we didn't love was that it said heated pool on facility, and either the heater wasn't on because it was summer time, or the pool wasn't actually heated at all.
It was nice and everything was local and convenient.
Loved the location! The little alcoves outside were perfect for sitting outside with a glass of wine and relax! We only met the office staff and they were wonderful!
nothing at all
How beautifully clean the room was; the also sparkling clean swimming pool. Very friendly and helpful staff. Close to Gloucester Harbor and Rockport.
close to grocery & liquor store; a bit of a hike to get to a waterfront restaurant, but do-able if you don't mind a long walk. Room was big & clean.
WiFi connection kept dropping; air conditioner was very noisy (husband had to buy earplugs); - it's a basic motel, in other words.
Pool...rooms were clean,desk staff very sweet ..
Check out to early for what you pay,a bit pricey but all in all a nice place for a nights rest
The check in process was a bit lengthy.
Very friendly staff!
Breakfast selection was very limited (e.g. no bagels)
We never failed to be impressed by the warmth and courtesy of the people of Massachusetts and our friendly reception came as no surprise. If we had more time we'd have stayed much longer.
service and booking issues.
Location & bed
breakfast room / front desk ladies were crabby & inhospitable
Location to Gloucester and Rockport Close to highway Easy to find Management was great Pool great Beautiful views Great bistro area Clean room
More variety for breakfast.
Loved it! Quaint little motel, extremely clean, quiet and great location. Pool and wi-fi a plus. Will definitely go back. Great value for the money.
