Very nice rooms, clean and comfortable. The lights outside were shining pretty bright in the room all night but didn't bother too much. Their continental breakfast was average. The view from the place was nice, can see the ocean slightly.

We are back again this year and nothing has changed, the cottage is great and staff excellent. If you are looking for a nice quiet place this is it, We are close to the fisherman's memorial and down town Gloucester great place.

Every other summer for the past 8 years, we drive up to Gloucester for a 1-2 night stay. The Sea Lion is where we choose stay. Modest but clean and well-maintained motel. It feels like you’re staying with your favorite family members.

Had a great stay as a family here. Pool was great, staff very friendly, and ideal location. We look forward to returning! Also, rooms are spacious and worked out really well for a family trip. Fridge and coffee in room.
