The room smelled strongly of mildew. The bathroom had not been cleaned. When we brought this to the attention of the hosts they were rather rude and dismissive but promised to have it taken care of while we were at dinner. When we returned the room still stunk and the bathroom had received a minimal cleanup. Their idea of a gift by way of apology was a large travel mug full of condoms and STD info. Pretty pathetic apology to offer a lesbian couple. 2 nights of ridiculously overpriced disgust and when we were ready to check out a fellow guest had to go wake the hosts so we could.

, Owner at The Dolphin Den, responded to this review, 2 July 2012
We certainly apologize for the inconvenience this guest had one (1) full year ago (no one is ever perfect) . With all due respect, perhaps the matter should have been addressed(1) full year ago. How can a small business respond in an environment that is 12 months late (at best) and purposefully, deliberately timed and designed to be mean spirited and vengeful. Why wait 12 months and write this review now (July 2012) about what may or may not have happened in August 2011?

No one wants bad reviews, and we strive to keep our guests coming back. It would have been more effective if we could respond 12 months ago. Since then we have installed new flooring, all rooms have been re-painted and all baths have been remodeled . We really are kind and nice innkeepers and strive daily to keep our customers coming back.

We are profoundly sorry for this guests experience and remain miffed about the mean spirited timing (quite a memory from a year ago--nothing else to do?) but it seems designed and timed to be downright vicious, cutthroat and vindictive...IF it ever even happened !

Brought the 2 young pups up to Ogunquit for the week. Rick and Joe, the two innkeepers at The Dolphin Den were once again magnificent hosts, greeting us with open arms. We stayed in the cute cottage on the property, right next to the large park. The dogs enjoyed the long park runs, jog to the beach, and the walks around the village. The Maine seacoast is so beautiful, the air is so fresh, and the restaurants offer local seafood cooked right! Wheneverwe come to Ogunquit, we stay at The Dolphin Den because the hosts just treat us right, the way one appreciates and expects.

Room Tip: Call first, and ask if the cottage is available, if travelling with dogs.
