Many years ago we stayed here when our kids were younger and had many great visits. When our son's wedding was planned in Gloucester we knew right away this was where we wanted to stay. The room was small and not updated but that wasn't important to us. We were there to sleep and get ready for the rehearsal and...

We spent 3 days in September here with our daughter and Grandson. They stayed in the efficiency room next to ours. To walk down to the beach with it's gentle waves and expansive area was a child's dream come true. Granpa, Granma, Mom and son spent hours digging , making roads, running the beach, exploring the rocks and that was...

Had three nights in an efficiency room which had a full frig, stove, sink and basic dishes and utensils and microwave oven. We had adjoining rooms also so we were able to open the doors between our rooms and had a big pizza party with a place for the leftovers and drinks (the frig). It was wonderful to be on...

The rooms were hot due to the time of year, rooms needs new ceiling fans, however, the staff was more than accommodating in making our visit the best it can be. I would go back absolutely. The Parrot in the Office Bert (Roberta) was the best too.

This is not a place to stay if you want quiet or updated. The staff if fine the beach location is great. The decks are all common walk ways so people are constantly walking by your room. No a/c and leaving the slider open with so many people wasnt really comfortable. Old beds lots of noise. Exspensive

I should have known when they made us pay full price sight unseen in advance. No air conditioning. People had their doors open with fans going, clothes hanging out. No private balcony. Bugs stuck on lamp. On second floor. People above us walking back and forth can hear every single step

We have been coming for many years to this location. All of the rooms open out on the water side. The rooms are basic but clean. Some rooms with efficiencies. Nothing fancy, a little dated but clean and the location can not be beat! Right on a Long Beach. Hotel provides chairs for guest outside the rooms on the small...

Right on Long Beach. Fantastic amazing views. Beautiful sunrises! Loved the sounds of the waves and the gulls. Very friendly staff. BUT no elevator (3 floors for rooms but 4 down to beach) and no air conditioning-- serious drawbacks. Old family-style motel. Rooms very clean. Pet friendly. Great for beach for families with little kids.
