The Vista Motel isn't fancy, but it is very comfortable and well situated. The best part is the staff who are so welcoming and friendly, from Yvonne & Priscilla at the front desk to Jean in the breakfast room. The room had a king size bed ( the other two doubles) , an armoire with a TV, a table and two chairs, a little efficiency kitchen, bathroom and private patio. The view even from the first floor was lovely, overlooking Good Harbor Beach. The second floor view was even better. Everything was very clean, with none of the musty smell often associated with motels. The complimentary continental breakfast was very nice, with a good selection of teas, as well as coffee and juice, muffins, breads, cereal. They also had some yogurts and sliced cheese, and fruit. The breakfast room had a very homey atmosphere thanks to Jean. We even sat outside on the patio one morning.
The motel was very convenient to both Gloucester and Rockport. The only minor negative was that the mattresses were very firm. I actually brought my pillow top with me which helped.
