It's not fancy, but it as what no other hotel has in Ogunquit ( it's right on the beach). It's clean, the people are friendly and like I mentioned in the title, it"s right on the beach. You can walk to the town center and get all you need. You must try the epicurean grocery, full of nice things to...

Yes we too were somewhat disappointed, really for what is on offer is a motel room with a super view of the ocean, Sundowner rooms do have that view. But most of the day the sun is off the balcony as it moves round into the west, it is one long balcony with access to any stretch by one and...

Dear yettonbatty, Thank you for staying at the Norseman Resort on Ogunquit Beach and sharing your opinion with tripadvisor. September is a beautiful month to visit, with reduced rates and diminished crowds - however as noted in your review - temperatures are certainly cooler and the sun sets a bit earlier. The Sundowner is our most popular oceanfront building and...

I have been going to The Norseman at Ogunquit beach for over 40 years. The hotel now has been renovated and is very nice. They redid the bathrooms. The beds were very comfortable. For what they charge now for the rooms plus the great location is worth what you are paying for. We had a great time this year. Always...

Can't get better for families. Long beach useable in high and low tide along with a tidal pool on the other side for youngsters that can't handle the surf. Room was reasonably priced and clean. Nice walk into Ogunquit where the restaurants and shops are. We will be back for sure.

Great location, right on the beach! Ogunquit town trolley stops right across the street from the hotel, $2 and it takes you anywhere around the town! Great option for bad weather days (we did not have amazing weather, rainy and cold the weekend we stayed). Ogunquit is a fairly small town, so on nice days you can walk most anywhere...

This used to be a nice place, but I think the money and the need for high prices got in the way. We stayed in the Gangplank room, which used to be nice, now half the size, not worth what you pay for, I understand the location, but that is not enough. Listed below are the issues: 1. Customer service,...

The Norseman is the only hotel directly on the beach in Ogunquit, so the location cannot be beat! We stayed in rm 210. It was very private, the views were awesome, and the room itself was quite nice. We enjoyed the nicely renovated room, which had a lovely granite and tile bathroom and a larger shower, a mini frig, and...

Really, the only reason to stay here is the location. It IS right on the beach, so you get to sit outside of your room and still be looking at the water. It is very nice to watch the sunrise from your room. The staff was always pleasant. The last time the rooms were renovated was probably 1980. You can...
