Wingaersheek Motel
Ranked #14 of 17 Gloucester B&B and Inns
Reviewed 24 October 2011

We had a wedding nearby and didn't book quickly enough to stay next the main wedding party. This was the overflow hotel. Our suite was neat a clean -- and as a bonus had a gigantic whirlpool tub that my kids loved. But it was threadworn.

The motel is located right next to 128, which is convenient, but it can be noisy. I got woken by a motorcycle zipping by.

My only significant complaint is that it was a pricey given its location and its newness.

Room Tip: back from the road.

As one person said, they have a very clever photographer.
We stayed in Suite 11. It was nice, clean, bright. The photo of the room shows a private deck and when you ask, they'll tell you it "looks out onto our side yard and fire pit area". That is a far stretch of the imagination. In reality, the "private deck" looks out onto the parking lot. If you sit at the far end of the deck, they have a bench set up facing the direction of the side yard.
But for the cleanliness, I'd stay there again if I could get the same room.

Room Tip: We 1st asked about a less $ room, but it was booked. They offered us the larger, more $ room for alm...

We attended the Wingaersheek Motel over the Memorial Day weekend. There was 4 of us and we got the one bedroom suite with a pull out couch and a day bed. We received a bit of a frosty reception from management. (We also had on the phone the day before when we had tried calling several times and never got a return phone call. When we finally reached them the next day and expressed shock over the lack of the return call we were simply told "we took the day off") We were intially surprised to see how close to the highway the hotel is - the bedroom window faced onto the interstate. Very loud traffic! The room was ok but the pull out couch was ancient with the cushions be very tattered. It was uncomfortable to sleep on. A party was booked in the room below us and they were very loud every night. The four of us barely slept. A complaint was made to management and they said there was nothing they could do about guests making noise. What??? Our last night there these guests were out partying until the wee hours and were frequently honking their horn. Management was very unsypathetic and did not seem to care. Another room was complaining when we checked out and management gave them the same response we got - can't do anything about it. I wouldn't recommend this B&B to anyone.

On our honeymoon we had such a hard time finding a good place to stay within our budget. This place was the nicest we have ever encountered. Super clean room, a comfy bed, fireplace, whirlpool, cathedral ceiling with a skylight along with the hardwood floors. For now on when we go north this is going to be our first stop along the way. The front desk is a pleasure and I want to thank you, again.

stayed @ wingaersheek motel with a number of family members fro a wedding we were attending. this is an older property with very small basic rooms. the "motel" style rooms were really more like bungalow rooms - frankly, my living room is bigger, and it's not all that big. the bathrooms were small and desperately needed updating - never fun to feel the linoleum sticking to your feet because it's no longer adhered to the floor as it should be. rooms were also in serious need of repainting, many scuffs & scratches throughout, and the ceilings were also quite dated. those who stayed in the upgraded "suites" were more satisfied as they did have some more room to spread out, but still these rooms looked as though they hadn't been updated in quite some time. overall not the greatest place to stay, unfortunately this area doesn't have any name brand hotels so it's alot of hit & miss, but wingaersheek is not the way to go - i would have preferred a motel 6 honestly.

We stayed in some wonderful places during our trip to New England, but the Wingaersheek is my favorite. It feels more like a bed & breakfast than a motel. It's sparkling clean and totally quiet. The proprietors are wonderful. We were a little early for the main season and the motel wasn't full, so they upgraded us from a room to the cottage (#9) at no additional charge. The cottage is so nice, I will pay the extra money to stay there when we go back. It has a kitchenette, cathedral ceiling, and small deck on the back. We opened the windows, turned on the ceiling fan, and enjoyed the breezes - no need to run the A/C. In the middle of the night, we saw a deer outside the window in the moonlight - magical!

We stayed at this motel for four nights. We were traveling with a motorcycle and a F350 truck. The owners were very nice about us parking the bike under the eaves in front of our room. And by the way, there is a campsite down the road about a mile to drive the bike off the bed of the truck ( also nice people). The room was small BUT VERY CLEAN !!!! And that says alot to me. Clean towels daily! And plenty of them. It was easy to get to downtown and all the attractions. I recommend this motel.
