This review is actually for Oct. 2009. We had reservations at another nice hotel in Gloucester. When we arrived the "computer had lost our reservations." That hotel had a wedding party coming in and didn't want our business. They were not helpful in finding us other acomodations for 2 nights. After searching at other very helpful seaside inns that had no availability they hooked us up with the Vista. We cannot say enough about the Vista's staff, the beautiful view and grounds, the location to the beach and the updated, very clean rooms. The prices were better than the origional place we had planned to stay and the attitude, other guests who were repeat visitors from the US, England and Australia were all pleased and welcoming to new guests. The owner and desk manager bent over backwards to make our stay pleasant, and it certainly was. If you want local advice about where to visit, where to eat, or if you want to walk over to the beach or just rest in your room with a beautiful view of the ocean this is the place. The pool was closed of course but the area was clean, nrely painted and made us with we were visiting in July. All four adults in our party will recommend this older motel that is reminiscent of the motels on Route 66 before hotels were available. It was like going back in time to the beach at a clean and personal motel where people really cared about making sure you were completely happy with your stay.
