Should have extra creamer and extra regular coffee and regular sugar other wise everything is awesome
Everything it has a little stove coffee maker plates a fridge I love it
The room & bath was immaculate. The view is spectacular. The office staff very friendly and the morning coffee and breads are a nice touch.
nice place and near many great spots to tour
one desk receptionist was somewhat rude
excellent view, reasonably large room, convenient parking, good front desk service except for one individual, welcome basket in room, welcome packet contained detailed and helpful info
The "ocean blue" plywood paneling from the 1960s and the rest of the decor, including the popcorn ceilings. Would love it if they would invest in really comfortable mattresses.
The view, the convenience (less than a mile to the location of my meetings), the service and thoughtfulness of the Vista staff.
Quaint, cozy, and quiet.
I loved that the room was immaculate and stocked with everything you could possibly need. I loved the view looking out onto the ocean and the location close to the beach. The Vista is in a very good location that made visiting Rockport, Essex, and other locations quick and easy to reach. The staff was so nice and housekeeping excellent. The rooms was also very quiet. I never even heard voices of other guests. I would absolutely recommend the Vista to friends.
Bathtub was full of water when we arrived. Had to get maintenance to fix, then had to request housekeeping to clean the tub. That should have been automatic. They charged me twice for the taxes. I had to make an issue to get the refund.
View was great...location great. Staff was pleasant. Good motel for families.
Minor quibble: the sliding door to the balcony was stuck & wouldn't open.
I appreciated the proximity to the ocean, the nice & super-helpful manager/owner, the easy parking and quiet locale, as well as the WiFi, TV, mini-kitchenettte. Simple (I have no need for lots of frills) but very clean. Bed was comfy, and everything worked. It was a last-minute booking but the end result was perfect.
Quiet! I need quiet when I sleep, and it is very quiet here. Beautiful view of the ocean, clean, and friendly staff. Meets my requirements!
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.
Thin walls. Neighbor's alarm clock seemed to be in the room with us
Loved the nearness to a good walking beach and to Rockport as well.
Some might find the decor older, maybe a slight bit out dated but I found it cozy.
Very scenic. Great comfy and cozy facilities. Staff were very helpful and kind. Will definitely be back.
The fake wood pannelling is a little "passé".
Bedding was very comfortable.Loved the view. And it was very quiet.
Not much perfect for our needs
Location & view
spectacular view. Great location.
Friendly, great views, within a short distance of all Gloucester amenities
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!
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.
very caring and efficient staff, management - would definitely stay there again
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.
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!
