We spent one night here and wish it had been more. The Inn is perfectly located for great harbor views (you really are directly across from the harbor, with a great front porch for viewing). The inside of the Inn is an oasis of soothing colors. The front room may be the prettiest room I have ever seen in a...

My husband and I stayed here for one night. It was in March so it's off season which made the stay at the inn and the town quiet and peaceful. Just the way I like it! The inn was clean and quaint with an amazing view of the harbor which is just across the street. John, the inn owner was...

The Harborview Inn was warm, welcoming and comfortable. You can tell the Harborview is lovingly taken care of. Very much enjoyed chatting with our Host John. The location is excellent, the Continental Breakfast was plentiful and very good and we loved the fact that the sea walk was right across the street. *Free parking is a bonus.

The main house of this historic hotel is fabulous. Cozy yet chic. Staff is very friendly and professional. Little trouble with housekeeping. Stayed two nights and still hadn't made up the room at 4 in the afternoon. After a reminder to the front desk it was promptly done...but they left dirty glasses and no new bag for the ice bucket....

Hi, I am sorry you had trouble with housekeeping at the unrelated property. Your review of the Harborview Inn you stayed at is not the property you reviewed. We are a six room bed and breakfast in Gloucester, Ma. We do not have a Matthew room nor a front desk, and certainly would not have made such a serious mistake...

Loved our stay. Tremendous hospitality. Highly recommend the Gloucester room. Would have given the stay 5 stars but the breakfast was not a hot meal. Nice baked goods and beverages, but the eggs were cold hard boiled and no meat. Breakfast got the job done, but nothing special. Saying that, we would stay there again.

Old and not that charming. Not a very friendly greeting for a B&B. Very noisy at night when other guests arrived late. Stale cookies in the lobby. Shower was almost unusable. Would NOT stay here again.

Hi Bonnie, We are sorry we didn't provide you with an enjoyable stay, but we thank you for giving us a 3 star rating. If your greeting was anything other than cheerful, we apologize. If it was an issue with parking, and we had to ask you to move, we do hope you understand you were not parked on our...

The location was nice. Right across from the waterfront. A short walk away from town. The family run inn were very helpful. The breakfast was good. There were cookies and tea/coffee available most of the day. If in Gloucester I would recommend this inn. Free pkg off street. Also free on street pkg.

We booked this Inn for the nights of August 12-14, 2016 based upon two factors that I confirmed with the management before booking, knowing that one night's deposit was non-refundable. knowing that the room was upstairs in this old Inn, I checked to see if negotiating the stairs would be a problem since I am partially disabled and use a...

The Inn was great!! Very clean - the owner John is very personable and very friendly. He is a great host. Rooms cleaned every day. The Inn is located right on the Harbor - walking distance to shopping and restaurants!! I would definitely recommend this place to stay.
