Great Places to Stay – Travel Gloucester

Places to stay Gloucester MA photo

Here’s a map of the Gloucester hotels, motels, resorts, bed and breakfast and you name it lodging that I whipped up in 2014 when I was serving on the tourism commission. I was curious where all these places were in relation to downtown. Laura Dow of Vista Motel and Laura Baker of Castle Manor Inn booked very full dance cards for us: two days of back-to- back lodging tours (any that signed up), speed dating style. Conclusion: there are great places to stay to suit anybody’s needs and preferences. I included some that we did not see.

This year, I added Beauport Hotel — which can handle a 400 person conference capacity!

Other news this year: Vista Motel has a new pool; Cape Ann Marina Resort initiated Boatsetter (‘Uber on the water’) and… send in updates and I’ll add it to the post.

Cape Ann SUP (Stand Up Paddleboard ) is right in there by Beauport and Long Beach for visiting guests.

  1. I looked into booking a room at Beauport for October. Nothing less than almost $400.00 per night. I haven’t been in Gloucester in years, but is that the new going rate? I could stay at the Ritz Carlton in Boston for that price.


    1. October is pretty. Your comment prompted me to check some dates on the Beauport Hotel reservations myself. For the October dates I plugged in the rate is $287. That price is a little more than Portland Maine where I just stayed for work in May in not as nice a hotel. It’s a little less than the newly renovated Plaza– which I haven’t seen since it was redone. Thanks so much for adding in!
