Very friendly staff, very large room with a lovely view and a great breakfast
location of room in back building of motel. we had reserved a room "with a view" nearly six months earlier
Vista Motel was pretty much what we expected. It is not a 4 or 5 star hotel that being said. The view from the room overlooking the beach and ocean was spectacular. The room was well used but clean, the beds were comfortable The staff was very friendly and helpful. The continental breakfast was appreciated. We enjoyed our stay and would return if the opportunity to visit Gloucester arises in the future.
Very nice and friendly staff. The hotel is very clean, the rooms are spacious and the view of the bay is wonderful to wake up to! Downtown Gloucester is only a short drive away with lots of good restaurants.
Loved the nearness to a good walking beach and to Rockport as well.
Thin walls. Neighbor's alarm clock seemed to be in the room with us
Very scenic. Great comfy and cozy facilities. Staff were very helpful and kind. Will definitely be back.
Some might find the decor older, maybe a slight bit out dated but I found it cozy.
Bedding was very comfortable.Loved the view. And it was very quiet.
The fake wood pannelling is a little "passé".
Location & view
Not much perfect for our needs
spectacular view. Great location.
Friendly, great views, within a short distance of all Gloucester amenities
Loved the location....was able to enjoy all of Cape Ann and easily travel North into Maine for a day's visit. Loved the harbor area and the vista's overlooking the seaports of all towns. Hotel was easy to get into and back out for periodic rests/relaxation.
Would have loved to have had hot water for the shower. Did not know until I was checking out that we needed to run the water 5 to 8 minutes to get hot water....most unusual, and not relayed to me until it was too late to enjoy a hot bath! We loved the breakfast food, but suggest a microwave to heat those luscious croissants and breads! I loved the balcony and the sunrises I viewed from there, and the afternoon rests we took there. Not having hot water did not deter me from enjoying my stay at the Vista. I would come again in a heartbeat!
very caring and efficient staff, management - would definitely stay there again
From the big window in the room I could sit and watch the ocean. It was a little too chilly for the balcony, but on a sunny day that would have been great, too. The breakfast in the breakfast room, where you can also sit outside, was very good. Fresh blueberry or walnut bread!
You can't really walk anywhere from the hotel because there are no sidewalks or trails. But in October parking is free at the beach down the hill.
A little dated, but clean
Lovely "old school" motel. Everything was top notch. Unfortunately, we only we there for an overnight. We would love to return and enjoy the Vista and charming Gloucester..
The room was acceptable but not really excellent.
The Shower/Tub tile was falling off the wall and was filthy.
The staff really cared about our visit and worked hard to make it a great experience.
reminded me of a small family motel that I worked at 30 years ago. Older facilities, but clean and friendly.
Room needs some updating.
Location View Cleanliness Quiet Value
I can't think of anything.
Early check in was possible. Friendly welcome. Good advice about local attractions including whale watching.
The view, the staff,
The view is magnificent from each room which have a sliding glass door to a small patio with 2 chairs and a small table. The location is very convenient to Gloucester center and Rockport. The rooms are well equipped with microwave, refrigerator, cooktop, coffee maker and accompanying utensils, glasses and dishes.
The sheets on the two beds were very wrinkled.

Beautiful place to relax and the Good Harbor Beach that you can see and walk to is fabulous. Staff are friendly.
