My wife and I drove up the coast and reserved a room at the Bass Inn prior to heading back to the Cape. While not intended to be a "resort", the hotel had everything you would want. This is a hotel where the staff clearly takes pride in maintaining the property. The rooms are nothing special, but they're clean and...

I stayed at Bass Rocks around the Labor Day holiday and came away highly impressed. Like so many of the hotels in the Cape Ann area, it is not affiliated with any larger chain and is made up of some older, existing structures. In fact, I feel like I remember this hotel being something like a Motel 6 back in...

We stayed here for four days after Labor Day and it was a great experience. The staff is very helpful and friendly and the place has some nice feature including bicycles, a heated pool and a fire pit. We stayed in the new wing and our room was good sized, clean and well appointed. The chocolate chip cookies are a...

I just spent 3 nights at Bass Rocks Ocean Inn in Gloucester, MA and it was wonderful! The Inn was a great mix of a warm, welcoming Inn with the amenities of a hotel. The staff was friendly, helpful and engaging. The room was clean and had a wonderful balcony that ran the length of the front of the building...

We stayed here for three days over Labor Day weekend. The hotel is lovely and based on an old house. We were in that part rather than the newer wing. It was spacious, clean, comfortable and quaint. It is right on the ocean. The staff was super nice and helpful and they put out warm cookies several times a day!...

We just spent 5 nights at this hotel with our 7-yr-old grandson and had a wonderful time! I was a little apprehensive before checking in, as I'm quite picky about hotels. But I have been very pleased. Here're what we liked about the place: - We had a 2nd floor 2-queen-bed room in the ocean front building. The room was...

Me and wife stayed here for two nights, I was concerned because we usually stay at 5 star hotels and Gloucester does not have any. Well I was wrong we found one!!

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...

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...
