The photos on the website made the place look nicer than it actually was. First of all, the chairs at the pool were rusted and the tables outside of each room had mismatched chairs. If the place had cost less, then we would not have cared about that. The location was beautiful with a breathtaking ocean view. But the pool was a bit cloudy. The room we stayed in had mismatched bed sheets, stains on the wall at the head of the bed and on the ceiling. The furniture was old and run-down. Worst of all, during the night, there were tons of bugs slithering along the floor. My husband was up all night killing them while I curled up tightly under the covers not daring to move. It wasn't until morning that I realized the bugs were not only in the bathroom. We saw several dead bugs between the carpet and wall near the beds and a couple of them climbing up the wall in the bathroom. When I approached the front desk, they refunded us 15%. That was a complete insult after such a horrific experience. We have stayed in all kinds of places over the years, from expensive and elegant to simple and basic. Even the least costly place was immaculate compared to this one. We will never stay at the Gloucester Inn by the Sea again and I will never recommend it to anyone. The photos on their website did not tell the full story. Buyer beware!
