We always enjoy the Vista
We always enjoy our stay at the Vista. The room and the bathroom are very clean, the efficiency well equipped, the towels and sheets are of good quality. The view is beautiful and the lawn and the pool are well kept. The room service is perfect.

We are never disappointed when we stay at the Vista. The staff is friendly and accommodating. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The pool is fantastic and the view from everywhere is spectacular. I recommend highly.
Great place to stay
Just spent four nights at The Vista! What a wonderful view with beautiful sunrises! The hotel is impeccable! The pool and grounds are perfectly manicured. Had a nice breakfast every morning.
A little far to walk into town but could take a nice long senic walk to the beach.
Hope to return to The Vista again!
From booking to leaving everyone is wonderful, informative and inviting. Location is perfect. The view absolutely breathtaking. Clean clean clean. We didn’t utilize the pool however it was open and heated!! The continental breakfast was just enough and if you wanted a full breakfast there is a little place around the corning. I look forward to staying with the Vista again. Thank you all.
This place was Fantastic
I booked a room for the night because my husband had surprised me with a Whale watch the next morning. When I called to make a reservation, the person on the phone was so helpful and polite. First impression was Wow. When we arrived, Yvonne was so friendly and helpful. We had to check out very early the next morning, she allowed us to grab something for breakfast because we would miss it. The room came with breakfast the next day. The room was really nice and clean. BUT our view was amazing. looking out our window at the ocean. It was just beautiful. I wish we could of stayed longer than 1 night. We are already planning a return. This place is a Jem!!!! thank you all for making our short stay so comfortable and friendly.
Vista Motel What a view
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.
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.
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 most perfect setting and staff! Our favorite place to call our home away from home. Our car had decided not to start and they even knew how to get us back on the road again. Just absolutely the friendliest, cleanest and most wonderful stay!
View worth the price alone!
Second time staying at Vista and more than satisfied both times.Great views,clean rooms and a staff that make sure you have everything you need. Want to know where the locals eat, ask at the front desk. Wanted some lobster rolls but didn’t want to float a loan at restaurant. Woman behind front desk, and wish I could remember her name, told me about Jeff’s Variety grocery store five minutes from the Vista that on Thursday’s had them at $9.97 each.,bought two went back to room, had them on the porch and ate like a king. Things like this are what make the Vista a great place to stay at and I recommend it highly.
Great place to stay
It’s our second visit and we’re already planning our third stay. Clean, great view of the beach, more then ample breakfast , lovely grounds, and a heated pool with plenty of towels and lounge chairs. The front desk staff was pleasant and informative.
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!
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.
The Motel s in a great location people working there were very helpful & friendly
the only problem the bed was to hard not very comfortable
Loved The Vista
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.
We were pleasantly surprised by our experience at the Vista. We weren’t sure what to expect because of the difference in price compared to other hotels. The grounds were very well maintained and the staff was friendly. The outdoor heated pool was excellent!
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!
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!
Love it here!
Great Place to Stay
Such a great place to stay in Gloucester. Highly recommend!
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
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.
