Score from 32 reviews Exceptional
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.
No hair Dryer, no iron in room.
Though fairly "bare bones," the facility was pleasant, clean, and comfortable. The property is well-maintained. The location was very convenient for our visiting in Gloucester and Rockport. Certain amenities, such as an iron and a hair dryer, we're not in the room, but we're available on request from the office. The bed was comfortable and the free wifi worked great. It had everything we needed.
My room must have been recently renovated. Everything but the furniture was new. How can you not like that?
Wifi was very spotty. I couln't stay connected with my phone or tablet. I was told on the night of arrival that a continental breakfast would start at 6 am. The first day I had to leave by 6:30 and second about 7:30. The office and breakfast area remained closed with no sign of activity. I understand it's off season, but I was told about breakfast and there was nothing.
Location ,staff, clean room.
I wish there was microwave.
sea view, friendly staff
it gets cold during the nights (heat blower is too loud so you have to turn it off), rooms are small, breakfast is just cereals and muffins.
The Rooms where clean and fresh
Supermarket and liquor store in walking distance. Great location for whale watching, nice town. Nice and quiet.
Limited choice continental breakfast.
