This hotel was great! The location is beautiful right ok the rocky beach along scenic drive. Sunrise every morning right over the ocean, right from your picture windows in the room! Breakfast and coffee/cookies come with your stay. Good breakfast right in the sunroom of the historic house. Heated pool and and fire pit turned on every night. Suites above...

This property has a great ocean view and all the amenities you may want. The staff is especially friendly and helpful. At check in, there are fresh cookies, coffee and tea, or hot apple cider. The cider was great. We chose a room on the 2nd (top) floor and I'm so glad because the view was better. The room was...

We enjoyed being able to see the ocean from our room, but it was really delightful watching the waves crash on shore while we were eating breakfast (blueberry muffins were fantastic), and playing pool. Stayed in the Ocean Front house. LCD TV was huge and they offer free movie rental. Golf course is directly behind hotel, so golfing is readily...

This is a great place to stay! We only stayed here for one night, but right from the start it was a good experience. The receptionist upon check-in knew who we were and was very friendly. There were chocolate chip cookies, coffee, tea, and hot chocolate available in the lobby. I always think that is a nice touch. We had...

We stayed here for one night in mid September. Last time we visited it was under the banner of Best Western. The new owners have totally transformed the hotel. The buildings always did look very nice but now the interiors match. The bathrooms have been totally transformed and although still small, they are perfectly formed!!!! As well as the upgraded...

Looking for a location to celebrate our anniversary. Was hoping from the cost and description of the views, it was just what I was looking for. Requested a balcony room thinking that would improve our privacy. However, the balcony is completely open across the length of the building. This would be a wonderful place to come with a family or...

The staff were helpful, one of the owners is always on property taking care of it. it was evident that it has recently undergone renovations and is being well maintained. The view was fantastic and right out the door we had a patio area with table and chairs to watch the ocean. The only negative was that there are no...

What a delightful 4 nights we spent here. We took advantage of a 'buy 3 get 1 night free' promotion after Labor Day. It's still pricey but was worth every dime. Despite some tight parking there isn't one negative here. Our 2nd floor room overlooked the ocean, rocky coastline, and Thatcher Island off in the distance. The road out front...

We've just left Bass Rocks Ocean Inn after a 2 night stay before heading further up the coast into Maine. I'm only hopeful that other places we've booked come close to being as good as this Inn. From the minute you check in, you feel welcome, with home made cookies and coffee always available. The place is spotless and you...

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...
