Gloucester Inn by the Sea
Ranked #5 of 17 Gloucester B&B and Inns
Reviewed 16 September 2010

My husband & I stayed at Gloucester Inn by the Sea in Gloucester, MA for 6 nights in September 2010. The room was clean, spacious, and nicely, but simply decorated. The king-sized bed was comfortable. Our one surprise with the room was the lack of a clothes closet. Since we were there for a wedding, we had some nicer attire that we would have liked to have hung in a closet. In the end, it wasn’t a big problem because management immediately provided us with some plastic hangers and we hung our clothes on the wall hooks with these hangers. This is another point I should mention. Management was courteous and very responsive to any of our requests. For example, when we requested additional dishes for the kitchen, we had more in our room in just minutes.
We reserved Room 1 well in advance because it had a full kitchen (one of only 2 rooms that did), king-sized bed, and ocean view. We wanted a small kitchen since we were staying for 6 nights and wanted the ability to eat breakfast at the Inn and possibly, a dinner, if we chose. This worked out really well for us. A large super market was located just down the street about 2 miles away and we were able to enjoy breakfast on the Inn’s new, beautiful sun deck on the tables overlooking the ocean just outside our door! It also enabled us to pack a picnic lunch to take on our afternoon lighthouse cruise around Cape Ann on the King Eider, which was very nice and I highly recommend. I will add a caveat here, though. On one hand, it was nice to have the sun deck right outside our door, but on the other hand, it resulted in less privacy for us since both our windows also opened up to the sun deck. We would have to close the blinds any time we wanted some privacy, thus blocking air flow and our views of the ocean. We could also hear people coming in and out of the reception area as they directly passed by our room to get to and from the reception area.
The Inn was also conveniently located for us. Our friends’ wedding reception was just down the road and we were within easy driving distance to visit other locations, such as: Marblehead (40 mins.), Salem (30 mins), Boston (1 – 1 ½ hrs. depending on traffic), and Rockport (5 – 10 mins.).
Overall, despite the lack of privacy due to its location near the reception area, I rated this room a “4” because: (1) we received a discounted price for staying 6 nights (a better price was not to be found anywhere on Atlantic Rd); (2) it had a kitchen, which we made daily use of; (3) the room was clean and spacious with access to a beautiful sun deck; and (4) management was courteous and responsive.

My mother, sister, 4 1/2 month old niece and myself stayed for 2 nights and it was a really nice experience. The staff was great, the room was very clean and the location was perfect. I would certainly return!

It is at a perfect location. Right in front of the ocean.You can see the activity in ocean from the room. There was ban on water but we did not feel because all night we had enough water bottles to cater to our needs. The customer service was too good. Staff was very friendly. Clean and tidy rooms with kitchenett. Very comy and very nice experience. Would certainly like to go back even if i paid $179/night. From here i saw my life's best sunrise!!!

Decent rooms with all amenities, and they all seem to be faced to the Ocean. Very clean. Decent beds. When I arrived (late and during a storm) there was a very friendly and efficient young guy at the front desk. I got a decent rate of 99 USD for a very nice room. Recommended!
