This is a friendly, welcoming property right across from the water. If you tire of watching the waves or walking along the water to Good Harbor Beach, the property offers bikes, DVDs, billiards, etc. Most of the property is a motel, complete with parking along the back and tiers of rooms opening right onto the parking lot or the second-floor...

This property has a great ocean view and all the amenities you may want. The staff is especially friendly and helpful. At check in, there are fresh cookies, coffee and tea, or hot apple cider. The cider was great. We chose a room on the 2nd (top) floor and I'm so glad because the view was better. The room was... More

We enjoyed being able to see the ocean from our room, but it was really delightful watching the waves crash on shore while we were eating breakfast (blueberry muffins were fantastic), and playing pool. Stayed in the Ocean Front house. LCD TV was huge and they offer free movie rental. Golf course is directly behind hotel, so golfing is readily... More

This is a great place to stay! We only stayed here for one night, but right from the start it was a good experience. The receptionist upon check-in knew who we were and was very friendly. There were chocolate chip cookies, coffee, tea, and hot chocolate available in the lobby. I always think that is a nice touch. We had... More

We stayed here for one night in mid September. Last time we visited it was under the banner of Best Western. The new owners have totally transformed the hotel. The buildings always did look very nice but now the interiors match. The bathrooms have been totally transformed and although still small, they are perfectly formed!!!! As well as the upgraded...

Looking for a location to celebrate our anniversary. Was hoping from the cost and description of the views, it was just what I was looking for. Requested a balcony room thinking that would improve our privacy. However, the balcony is completely open across the length of the building. This would be a wonderful place to come with a family or... More

What a delightful 4 nights we spent here. We took advantage of a 'buy 3 get 1 night free' promotion after Labor Day. It's still pricey but was worth every dime.

We've just left Bass Rocks Ocean Inn after a 2 night stay before heading further up the coast into Maine. I'm only hopeful that other places we've booked come close to being as good as this Inn.
