Incredible view, friendly staff, and convenient access to nearby attractions. Free bicycles for use was a nice touch. This was our first stay in New England and we fell in love. We will definitely return to the area and to this hotel in particular.

I made last minute plans at Thanksgiving to come out and explore Gloucester with college kids who needed to study and wanted a room with a view. They studied in the main hotel room overlooking the ocean and took breaks playing billiards. It was perfect for our needs.

My husband and I visited last April and we were one of the first to visit during the new season. They were closed during the first few months of the year. It is well worth the wait to go if you do not have a time table. The staff is gracious and the views are stunning.
