We stayed in a lower level Unit facing Perkins cove. The view from here is nice and there is a nice yard to hang out in and relax with lounge chairs etc. The location is fantastic facing Perkins Cove and you can walk over to cool little restaurants and cruises. Pro's: Location, location, location. Can walk up Marginal way or...

Thank you Atlas 313 for reviewing us. I sure wish you had the opportunity to interact more with our amazing, friendly, skilled, experienced, dedicated, and responsible staff. They, and the thousands of kind guests that visit us each year are what actually sets the Riverside apart from most other destinations. After surviving the bad review by the trespasser from the...

Cannot even count the number of times I've stayed at the Riverside. I usually travel with my husband but have gone with my adult daughter as well...we all love it there. The end king balcony room is the absolute best for privacy, but all rooms are good with lovely views. The staff is very hard-working and pleasant...they work extremely hard...

This was our first visit to the Riverside Motel. We usually stay in B&Bs in Kennebunkport, but we had a few days and wanted to try Ogunquit. The motel grounds are beautifully kept. It is has spacious lawns and neatly kept buildings. The room was extremely clean and neat, but it was a motel room and that took some getting...

Thank you Meriden Travelers for sharing your visit with Trip Advisor. We have had the recent issues of the wifi analyzed. Our system that formerly was sufficient for laptops needed to be strengthened for the much smaller devices now on the market. Upgrades are scheduled this month. We hope you have an opportunity to test it next year. Best wishes!...

Loved the location in Perkins Cove. We walked everywhere and had our choice of many great restaurants. The Marginal Way is three minutes away, and the beach is about a twenty minute gorgeous walk. We rarely saw anyone in the lobby so it is hard to rate the staff. Basic breakfast and basic rooms in need of renovation in the...

This was our second year at the Riverside and It was even better than we remembered.. Beautiful views, immaculate quiet rooms, pleasant staff ,ample parking and the most luscious orange cranberry muffins for breakfast. The location is perfect, a short drive to the beaches of York or a walk down Marginal Way to Ogunquit who could ask for More!

Thank you tkjbd for sharing your Riverside visit with the Trip Advisor readers. Gradually, the best kept secret of our complimentary continental breakfast is becoming more popular. Yes, one used to find a few Orange-cranberry muffins hidden behind the dozens of Maine Blueberry muffins. We will soon need to edit the ratio of our bakery orders.......again! Best wishes for a...

This my second stay at the Riverside Motel, the grounds are beautifully kept, the housekeeping staff is very friendly and the location in Perkins Cove is the best. On this past trip i stayed for four nights, in the future I hope to make it much longer. Thanks to Geoff for making all my stays memorable.

We again stayed at the Riverside Motel in Ogunquit, ME recently as it is our "escape location" each summer. The staff are very friendly, the rooms are very comfortable and the locations can't be beat. Waking up and looking outside our lower level picture window we see the ocean, we see the lobster boats and we see lovely Perkins Cove....

After a variety of rooms over 10 days, this was how we ended our Maine vacation. Clean, roomy, views. Loved that we could walk to dinner and not mess with driving in the crazy August traffic! I know there are Trolleys but I don't know how often they run. The Marginal Way is a nice walk. It's a bit of...

Thank you mateome for sharing your vacation with the T/A community. We are happy that the Riverside was the final stop, wish you were still here!

Thank you Supreme F for taking the time to tell the Trip Advisor readers about the Riverside. The peaceful location is definitely difficult to imagine until one relaxes on this side of the Cove for a few minutes. Our "oasis from the stressful world" is almost impossible to describe with words. Our staff appreciates your kind comments about our spotless...
