This hotel is very simple and informal. There is nothing fancy in this hotel at all. I love this hotel because its location. It is located right on the beach and you can enjoy the beach no matter time of the day it is. The rooms that face the beach has an ocean view and you can open the window... More

We discovered this little gem many years ago and have had the opportunity to return quite a few times..Its definitely not what you would call a high end hotel/motel, but what it is is a very well kept "Mom and Pop" type motel that is located on the perfect spot,right on Good Harbor beach! The owners and staff have always... More

The place is dated, though the current owner is adding improvements each year. It is comfortable and quiet (generally). The place is right on one of the best beaches in New England....not near, not across the street from, right on the beach.

We visit Gloucester quite often, & found this place this year. We usually stay at a different hotel ,that is just as lovely, but not on the beach. This is now our go to place when we visit Gloucester. We happen to love vintage hotels & inns. Yes, the furnishings are older, but the place is clean, & has that... More

The location (on the beach) and guests that go the same week as we do bring us back every year. It's not the room, or the dozen donuts at breakfast (to be shared among 40 people or so). The staff are very pleasant and do the best they can ( it's not their fault the carpet needs to be replaced).... More

Pro: On the beach, rooms are clean. Con: Room is too dark at day day time, (lamps are very decorative but worthless - poor light). At night too much light shines into the room (stayed at #3 7/24-24/2015). Every word spoken outside of the room, found it's way in too. Wifi did NOT work.

Me & my husband stayed here 3 years ago in Room 17 – beautiful room, fantastic view of the ocean. If I was reviewing that now, I’d give it 5 stars. Couldn’t wait to come back!

The room is small but clean and has two double beds so is suited for a family of four. There is a good size refrigerator and it is air conditioned.

“Lastly, If you DO decide to stay here, ask for room 17 (great view)or 13 (crap view), they are the only TWO renovated rooms and they are very small but perfect for a couple! Otherwise, try another hotel.”
