4 1/2 Stars! I have been to the Vista four times in the past 10 years (I'd go yearly if I could!) and I've been very happy every time. Rooms are clean, staff is friendly and helpful and you can't beat the cost, even in season, for access to Good Harbor Beach and all that Gloucester/Rockport has to offer. I recommend the Vista (and Gloucester) to everyone as a great vacation spot, and the Vista especially for the fridge/micro in every room, the fabulous breakfast and the clean, warm pool for when you want a more relaxing swim. The only thing that keeps this from being 5 stars is: (1) no exhaust fan in the bathroom - window opens but that doesn't help the "steamies" after showers, by the 2nd shower the room is practically dripping; and (2) maybe I'm just getting older, but the beds seemed unusually hard/uncomfortable. Even a $20 "egg crate" would be a huge improvement. Still, I'll go back again and again, until I win the lottery and buy my own place in Gloucester!
