Vista Motel What a view

5.0 rating

We recently stayed at the Vista and we will definitely be coming back next year with the grandson. Room was great, view from the room was fantastic and the service was fantastic. Definitely the place to stay.

Pleasant Stay.

From the time I reserved a room with Garry, I had a good feeling about where I would be staying. He checked us in and I was convinced. He and the entire staff seemed committed to us having a great visit to the area, as well as the accommodations. Everyone was so friendly and interested in meeting all of our needs. The owner, breakfast staff and maids could not have been nicer. The view from my large room was premier. When I find myself in that area again, the Vista would be my first choice for sure.

Weekend getaway

The Vista is one of my favorite places to stay when I visit Gloucester. Everyone is friendly. The place is very clean and the beds are comfortable. I accidentally left something behind in the room and when I called they offered to mail it to me at my home. I highly recommend!!

The Vista was true to its name. The view from our room was amazing and calming. The rooms were clean and fresh and for being an older motel, it was up to date with everything!! The breakfast was amazing and delicious. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We didn’t get to enjoy the pool, too many places to see!! I would definitely recommend The Vista to anyone!!!!

Every room has a view of the Atlantic, the outdoor pool is beautiful and overlooks the ocean as well. Convenient to Gloucester, Cape Ann and Rockport, and not a bad commute to Salem. The owner/managers could not have been nicer. It is a throwback to the old “motor lodges”, so if you are looking for glass and mirrors this won’t be your bag, but if clean, convenient and polite is your thing you can’t go wrong here!

Wonderful stay...again!

My wife and I have returned to the Vista almost annually for many years. We love the friendly, personal service we receive as much as we enjoy our comfortable rooms, great view of the ocean, and easy walking access to Good Harbor beach. The staff and owners seem committed to always making things better, so there are always nice new touches to the rooms and the grounds. It’s great to have a place to stay in Gloucester that we know we can depend on for service and quality.

Loved The Vista

5.0 rating

Recently, my husband and I spent 2 nights at
The Vista. Before booking, I read the reviews
and booked our stay. Every encounter with
the staff was a pleasure. Pricilla and Garry at
the front desk were welcoming and very
helpful. Jackie did a great job in the breakfast
Room. Everything was fresh and delicious. The
rooms were very clean. Beds comfortable. We
enjoyed morning coffee on our balcony.
Definetly recommend this hotel.

The Vista met all our needs and exceeded our expectations.

We stayed here four nights in one of their Premium rooms (which has a small kitchenette). The Vista met all our needs and exceeded our expectations. It is one of the most well-run hotels I have stayed in. Everything is very clean and works well. Every single staff person we interacted with was friendly, helpful, and professional. This place is not fancy, but it is everything I want in a hotel by sea. And the views, ah the views.

Amazing Find - Rooms Were Nice and EXTREMELY CLEAN!

5.0 rating

This place was an amazing find. Rooms were nice and EXTREMELY CLEAN! The service was friendly and informational. The motel is only 5 minutes from the train station which made traveling to and from Boston very easy. Looking forward to staying there again next time we are in the area!

Stunning View!

Stunning Views

5.0 rating

Hotel was awesome! All rooms have stunning views of Good Harbor beach and they give you a $10 off voucher for beach parking. So close you could walk but with the kids we didn’t! The rooms and the grounds were immaculate! The staff was very friendly and helpful! We will definitely stay here again!

Boy Was I Surprised

5.0 rating

When I researched hotels in Gloucester this one was half the price of others. I just knew it was going to be a dump.
Boy was I surprised. 
The grounds were immaculate. The staff helpful and joyful. The view perfection. The location convenient to everything.
The rooms are mini-apartments. We wanted for nothing.
I had never been to Gloucester, but thanks to Vista I will return.
