bathroom need updating-dirty looking tile, shower fixture hard to work, etc.
We were thrilled with the location of the property so close to the beach, and found the whole stay a great experience. We would definitely book there again.
with-in walking distance to beach. very friendly staff. Excellent breakfast.
we were told the outdoor pool was heated. It was not. Way too cold to swim in.
Very homey and quiet, cozy breakfast room, convenient location, comfortable rooms, very clean
The location was great and the staff were nice.
The floor was filthy and there was a bloodstain on one of the blankets.
The room was very clean and included a little kitchen. The pool was great, the kids were in it almost every day. Nice view of the beach, great service and very friendly staff.
It is a bit of a walk to get to the beach on a fairly busy road. Good thing the motel has vouchers. The room décor is a bit dated, but to be expected in a motel.
The pool, the view,just being there
Bed comfort,some kind of bread product ie, bagel,muffin toast.
The balcony view of Good Harbor Beach foot bridge and the ocean. The kitchen was truly nice though we did not need to use it but for coffee. The cleanliness and staff was superb.
There was nothing 'not to like'.
Beautiful view from room.
Parking was tight at times.
They go out of their way to make sure you are comfortable and happy. Staff is excellent. Family friendly, and dog friendly. It is very clean and the continental breakfast helps to start the day very well. You are close to the beach, with a great view of the ocean. And there are couple grocery stores close by. Recommend it highly!
Mattresses are the only downside. They should be updated.
Great room and view. Staff very friendly and efficient.
Prompt response to emails, securely stored our 2 kayaks, great location to Good Harbor Beach
Location, comfort, welcoming staff, clean rooms, great view. Breakfast out on the veranda, pool was wonderful.
The staff was helpful - and caring. We had car issues, and they helped out. We had billing issues, and they helped out.. It was a fine family-run place that cared.
Short walk to Good Harbour Beach. Friendly and accomodating staff.

Beds were not as comfortable as could be.
Awesome view of the wonderful New England coast. It's always great to visit my home place after leaving in 1974. I will always be a New Englander! Hopefully I will be back next year !!
View from balcony; fridge and kitchen essentials in room. Bed was clean and comfy. Didn't look that great from the outside; inside was better and that's what matters.
Fairly run down looking from outside. A little hard to find. Staff were All 12 yrs old and not very friendly but perfectly adequate.
Quiet, clean, great view. Short walk to a beautiful beach!
Nice pool and wiev
Tranquility, the restaurant nearby and the beautiful city of Gloucester!
The pool is not heated enough!
The room was big.
There was only a blackout drapery over the only natural light -- the sliding doors to the deck. You either have no light or everyone can see you. Also, the lighting is terrible in the room and more so in the bathroom. Energy efficient is fine but you need more light. The bathroom was old, and had dark stains ons the grout.
Landscaping and property maintenance good. Continental breakfast option good.
Location is noisy due to car traffic on state road just below. Coffeemaker in room did not work
