This is our 10th year in a row coming to The Beachmere. We have always stayed in the Victorian and love it there. The rooms in which we have stayed have all had magnificent views. The rooms themselves have been upgraded in various ways, are well appointed, and very clean. The staff has always been very helpful and friendly.
Breakfast is an extensive Continental type and if you are there when Dolores is the hostess, you will enjoy it even more! The Inn is right on the Marginal Way, a mile long walk along the ocean which leads to Perkins Cove. Simply gorgeous! Other amenities include a Hot Tub, Sauna and Exercise Room.
In the 10 years we have been coming to the Beachmere, we have seen all of the additions and reconstructions that have taken place. All of these changes have made the Beachmere a much more comfortable and really beautiful experience! The Victorian's new entrance with its three level hallway, is something to see. There is even a slightly temperamental elevator which goes with the charm of this magnificent older building. Bottom line is, if you are going to Ogunquit, Maine, you deserve the Beachmere Inn!

Room Tip: For best room selection, call January 2nd for reservations for the following year. It's that pop...

Dear Gerald S - Congrats on your 10th anniversary of staying with us! We appreciate your continued visits and look forward to your next stay. I appreciate your sharing your tips and experiences here at the Inn (even LuLa our temperamental elevator in the Victorian - she hasn't failed us ever!!), something that will be helpful for those using TA to research where to stay in town. We look forward to your return and in the mean time, enjoy fall and winter well!

This was our first stay at the Beachmere Inn and we definitely plan to return. I was very impressed with the cleanliness of the suite. Janet did an outstanding job. Unfortunately the weather didn't cooperate so we couldn't enjoy the grounds, but we managed to visit with Scott the bartender at the pub and would highly recommend it for lunch or a light dinner. The continental breakfast was nice. My only complaint is no skim milk for my cereal! (Next year I plan to bring my own.) We found the staff to be very friendly and accomodating. I would highly recommend the new (2009) wing with all the comforts of home, including wireless access at no additional charge! It's nice being right on the Marginal Way and still close enough to the Main Street shops and restaurants.

Dear LovestoTravel41543 -
Thank you for your comments here on TripAdvisor. As a new guest to our Inn, I'm pleased to see that you enjoyed the west suites and the pub with Scott even if the weather wasn't cooperating. We hope to see you back in Ogunquit Maine and at our Inn someday soon.

Of all the Marginal Way resorts, the Beachmere is, without a doubt, #1. With its huge sweeping, manicured lawn, comfy chaise lounges, umbrellas to shade you, the pub for a refreshing beverage (!) which can be brought out onto the lawn (and the ONLY alcoholic beverages that are allowed on the lawn can be procured at the pub), the best views, instant access to "the Way," its coastline beach, sunrise yoga -- the Beachmere has it all. Also, their remarkably complete website does show "last minute availabilities." We grabbed a small room in the Victorian section of the resort, at the last minute, for one night;while the room was VERY small (better for one person than two, but then again, my husband and I prefer spacious over cozy; honeymooners might think a double bed is still fun!), we had a fabulous time. It had a terrific deck! We plan to return, hopefully over the next 3 seasons, and then again, next summer. The best part of the Beachmere is that you're far from the madding crowds of Main Street!!

Room Tip: Use the website! Every room is pictured - a tremendous help.

Dear TravelerfromWinthrop -
Thank you for your review and five star rating here on TA! We hope to see you back in Ogunquit during the coming seasons and we'll make sure to get you a larger room for your visit (however, glad we could squeeze you in last min!) Did you take a Yoga class while here??... guests have been loving the early morning yoga on the lawn and we'll be offering it again next summer. We look forward to your return in our quiet little corner of Ogunquit.

Have spent 3 wonderful trips at the Beachmere Inn in the summers of 2008, 2010 and 2011 and enjoy it so much we have made reservations for 2012. The views are spectacular and the friendliness of the staff is outstanding, they go out of their way to make sure you have a comfortable and enjoyable stay. We stay in the Victorian and can just enjoy sitting on our deck and watch people stroll by and listen to the waves pounding the surf...fantastic!! We definitly have recommended to our friends and in fact two of them are joining us this summer and are looking forward to it after viewing the pictures.

Room Tip: All the rooms have great views but we enjoy the views from the Victorian.

Lovely experience!! Thank you, TripAdvisor, for leading us here! This hotel looks ordinary but definitely offers much more than it appears.

First off, the location & views are spectacular. All rooms (I believe) have a balcony/porch looking out onto the expansive lawn with amazing open views of the ocean. This immediately puts you in vacation mode!

Rooms: we were in Room 121 in the West building & it was great. The room was spotless which I don't usually say about any hotel. Beds were super comfortable with nice linens (& sheets covering blankets so no cooties!) Black out shades on ALL windows were a huge plus as well since it is a sunny room with lots of windows in the living area and that usually wakes us up early (my daughter slept in this area in the couch/trundle bed and slept later than she does at home). Nice size living space overall and super user friendly - kitchenette, table & very large bathroom were all nice perks to have. No noisy air conditioners and again, porch was great & even had lights outside so you could read at night with a glass of wine taken right from the handy, friendly little bar.

Staff was very friendly & helpful - never annoyed by anything that was asked of them.

Breakfast: an OK, pretty basic buffet but enough to get you through till you're ready to leave the hotel for a bigger meal. 2 cold cereals, bagels/english muffins, yogurt/granola & very good donuts!

Location: Perfect - right on the Marginal Way!! The direct access via a small gate made it feel pretty exclusive since I didn't notice many (any?) other hotels that had this. And again with the expansive lawn, it felt separated & private where you didn't feel everyone was walking past your property. Great section of rocks to sit & hang out on right in front of the hotel & lovely, easy walk to Perkins Cove via this path.

Go Green: I read the hotel manual and they have a whole section on their 'green' policies. Very impressive. Besides natural & recycled products, they even send wasted soaps to be recycled & sent to Africa & countries where soap is not readily available. This is just an aside, but I was impressed with this as most hotels (especially when not a big chain) don't do this.

The only complaint about the room would be the thin walls & ceiling. We heard every footstep of the people upstairs (& I lived in apartments my whole life). Not sure if it is like this in the other sections and buildings (West is newest wing) but would definitely request a top/2nd floor room next time.

Also, it would've been helpful to let the guests know ahead of time (time of booking/confirmation) to bring beach blankets, chairs, etc. since these are not provided or available at the hotel & are obviously greatly needed in this area.

So, in summary, this is a wonderful place to stay -- very user-friendly and a great place to base yourself to explore other areas. We really wish we had more than 2 nights here because it is a super comfortable place that allows one to not feel like you're in a cooped up hotel room - has a very outdoorsy feel.

Kudos to the Beachmere! We hope to return again.

Room Tip: ask for top floor if staying in the West wing.

We went for a long weekend and stayed in room 9. Most rooms have an ocean veiw, ours was more of a partial veiw from our patio. Which staff did mention upon making reservations. 5 steps up gave us a full view of the beautiful ocean! Staff was very pleasant, room very comfortable and spacious. The continental breakfast was more than we imagined and they kept the items plentiful. The location was perfect, quiet but in the middle of everything. The views were just breathtaking. We have never spent so little money on parking because we didnt need to drive. Nor have we ever spent so much time at our hotel....it was really a perfect weekend. Thanks so much to all at the Beachmere!
