We really liked this hotel. Large comfortable room, great view of the water, and convenient location to Gloucester waterfront as well as Rockport. Adequate continental breakfast in a cozy room. Very friendly check in with welcoming brownies and lemonade! Very good value.

Set on a slight hill with a view of the beach, this motel has spacious rooms and serves a great continental breakfast each morning. It was too chilly to take a dip in the pool, but it did look inviting! Just a short drive took us into town where we can recommend Passports bistro

are there any restaurants or shops within walking distance? say 1 mile or less?
The Stop & Shop is half mile along with CVS, pizza, flower shop . There are a few other stores in back of The Vista. (Liquor, Drug store, Pharmacy, Shaws grocery store. Rockport is 10 miles away and there you will find a delightful town filled with beautiful shops,restaurants, wharf etc. About 5 miles the opposite direction is Gloucester. Another awesome village. Good Harbor Beach is just a mile down the road.

Yes, there is a charge for a pet to stay in your room. In the summer it is $18/day and in the off season it is $12/day. Please note that there is a strict rule that you may not leave the pet alone in the room, even if the pet is crated. Thank you, we look forward to your visit! LD

Are all the rooms ocean view? Which is better, first or second floor?
All of the rooms at the Vista have beautiful ocean views, only three of our forty rooms have a slightly obstructed view. I do think that second floor views are a little better.

"Second floor facing the water"
"Room #4 was in a single story building with parking right next to door. Nice patio outside room facing ocean."
"We like to have the room with a balcony but truly any room works. They have chairs outside your room to sit or by the pool area too."
"Have efficiencies as well."
"Within walking distance to Good Harbor Beach"
