This is a splendidly located inn on the granite shore just outside Gloucester. Great location with stunning views and fantastic shoreline walks. Rooms are comfortable. Bathrooms, though small, are adequate. Air con and heating work fine. Staff generally are excellent with the exception of some of the waiting staff at breakfast. And there's the problem: the breakfast ! Totally inadequate...

Just spent 4 nights at Bass Rocks and the location and view is absolutely stunning! I really enjoyed the heated pool and fire pit. The grounds and rooms are very clean and I liked having ample supply of water and breakfast provided daily. The room is basic motel (but clean) and a very small bathroom but you pay for the...

We have been going to the Bass Rocks since it was a Best Western years ago. There have been a lot of updates, including a new pool, hot tub, and gas flame fire pit. This is a perfect location right on the granite shoreline of the Atlantic Ocean. You also have a great view of the Twin Lighthouses. Did I...

Yes..it's a glorified motel. The main room where a sub par breakfast of canned fruit salad, or totally unripened rock hard or green bananas and baseball nectarines, mini noses of cereal, sugar laden yoghurt cups, and all heavy low quality breads was has beautiful antiques. The very inexperienced "summer kids" will plow into you at the buffet as they hurry...

The hubs and I stayed here with our two 13-year-olds. The room was roomy and very well-kept- and each one includes a gorgeous ocean view. Staff is friendly and helpful- and breakfast is included! We couldn't have been happier with our stay.

Im used to 4 and 5 star accomdations, and although the outside looks okay, the inside lives up to my expectations. It appeared to be all NEW interior, with very comfortable beds. The bathroom is small but I wasnt there to spend time in the bathroom. There is a nice walking path along the ocean that runs a couple miles...

My husband and I stayed at the inn last week and enjoyed every part of our stay. The service was impeccable, the room was clean and the view was to die for. My husband rode one of the inn's bikes around town while I enjoyed spending time lounging at the pool. We love Good Harbor and had great meals at...

My wife and I stayed here just this past weekend (July 11-July 14) and couldn't be happier with our experience. We're both very picky when it comes to hotels and the hotel's location. The Bass Rocks Ocean Inn is located across the road from some of the most beautiful Ocean you can see on the East Coast. It's quite literally...

My husband and I stayed this past weekend. What a great place to stay! The rooms are renovated with flat screen tvs. The bed was very comfy. Basically all the rooms have an ocean view except for the ones in the main house. I recommend staying on the first vs the 2nd floor. Same views and you don't need to...
