Enjoyed our one night stay at the Vista. Hotel seemed dated but quaint. Room was large and clean. Had some road construction going on so it made the access a little tough, but certainly not the hotel's fault. View from the room was great. Nice breakfast.

Thank you for reviewing, I'm so glad you enjoyed your visit. Sorry about the road work but we did get a new sidewalk to the beach which is great! I hope you might be able to return and check it out.
Best,
Laura

Great views, large CLEAN room. Love the vintage feel of the bathroom. If we were to ever go back to the area, we would DEFINITELY stay there again! Staff was friendly. We would not have enjoyed our trip if we had stayed at a chain hotel. This place offers charm and relaxation.

We just flew in from the UK so were feeling pretty tired. We'd booked in advance so that we had a place for one night before our drive to Vermont.
We found The Vista to be of excellent standard in comfort and cleanliness. Friendly staff welcomed us. In the morning we were pleasantly surprised by the delicious breakfast selection and the coffee....good coffee is important to us ! All in all a 5* stay!

Have been planning to stay here for over a year. Finally made it and we are so happy to have done so. Arrived at midnight but a key was waiting for us. The room is big with 2 queen beds. A mini-kitchen also. The bath room is standard sized. Room is dated with wood paneling and older furniture. Think 70’s-80’s. Don’t let that sway you. This place is charming and extremely well maintained and clean. The view is great from your patio. Continental breakfast is ample. No eggs or meat. Bagels, breads, yogurts, juices, coffee, fruit, cereals etc. Go, you’ll be glad you did. This Kentuckian loved it!

My husband and I first came to Gloucester to go whale watching which was amazing. It was the peak of the season and hard to find a place to stay. We passed by and saw the vacancy sign. Little did we know by staying here it would make it our favorite place to go and stay each and every year since. It’s been 15 years and never get tired of it. What a beautiful clean place. The staff is so welcoming and helpful. All the rooms are extremely well kept. The continental breakfast room is adorable n so clean. The food is just perfect, coffee is always fresh hot. The pool is great. And being across the street from my favorite beach of all, I couldn’t ask for more. I could not say enough about the Vista! Thank you to Laura and her wonderful staff for making our stay with you for the past 15 years always the best! Can’t wait to see you next year. Donna & Ken
