The Sparhawk Oceanfront Resort
Ranked #10 of 36 Hotels in Ogunquit
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 11 August 2012

The Sparhawk may be a mix of motel, hotel, bed & breakfast type accomodations but it feels like "you're coming home". Each time we return for several weeks in the summer, we enjoy it all the more. The views of the ocean are spectacular and the Sparhawk grounds are spectacular. Beautiful flowers and grassy areas. The Marginal Way begins at the Sparhawk and it is breathtaking- ocean and rock formations for a mile! The Sparhawk is a TRUE treasure in Ogunquit, Maine!

We've just concluded our 3rd stay at the Sparhawk in Qgunquit. We have literally stayed in 14 different accommodations in the 18 years we have been travelling to this seaside resort town. The reasons we have settled on the Sparhawk as our favorite are: central location, comfortable, spacious, beautiful, clean apartment-style suites (we've stayed in 63 & 67), breakfast and rates at par with other locations which didn't offer ocean views or breakfast. The children love the pool and the board games available in the lobby. We like our ocea- view patio and the immaculate, ultra-landscaped grounds. The staff is helpful and welcoming. We hope to do as so many of the families we see at the Sparhawk seem to; keep coming back for generations.

Room Tip: If you are travelling with children, ask if one of the apartments is available.

We have returned to this resort for many years. It's at the side of the entrance to Marginal Way, bordered by the most brilliant beautiful flower display. There is a variety of accomodations--some with windows that almost jut out over the sea! Our favorite, lately, is Fireside suites, which provide an extra room as well as the large bedroom and outdoor patio, just steps away from the swimming pool. If you can be at Sparhawk for the 4th of July, you'll see the most spectacular fireworks display almost bursting into your patio. There is a lovely short-cut walk to the famous Ogunquit beach, and the Marginal Way, an unsurpassed walk on the cliffs overlooking the ocean, is a one-mile long walk to pictuesque Perkin's Cove.

Room Tip: 3rd floor facing the ocean in the building at right angles to the main house. Make reservations at...

We've spent many years vacations at this resort and see the same furniture that was there in the 80's. Its a great location and always clean and the people who work there are very nice, but its time for a little upgrading of the beds and furniture. The breakfast is free. It is a very 'reserved' type of place so if you bring children you might feel a little uncomfortable at breakfast as its very quiet even though there are many people in the building.

My husband, sister, Mom, Dad and in-laws have enjoyed this beautiful hotel for 18 years,same time every July. It is like a second home and we truly wish it could be longer than 10 days. But we are thrilled to have those 10 days. It starts with reservations and the lovely ladies we work with are WONDERFUL! The hotel is clean, quiet and comfortable. The location is perfect. You hear the crashing waves from your balcony facing the Atlantic Ocean. The gardens are just so lovely and so well kept, not a trace of liter anywhere. Everyone is so very accommodating they truly care about each and every guest. Ogunquit is such a beautiful escape from the hustle and bustle, you can truly relax with a good book and take time to smell the roses.

Room Tip: Any room is good as they all face the water.

The Sparhawk is situated on a prime location in Ogunquit. Every room has a balcony facing the ocean. When you first arrive there is always a warm and friendly welcome waiting for you. If you need help they are more than happy to assist you. The rooms are neat and clean. There is a wonderful buffet breakfast served each morning.There are tennis courts, swimming pool and a hot tub on site. If you stay there on the fourth of July the Ogunquit fireworks are set off right in front of your balcony. Magnificent sight. It doesn't get any better then this.

I arrived in Ogunquit sans reservations on a Sunday afternoon (knowing that most every hotel had availability, per Kayak search). I wanted to go directly to properties to determine their condition/vibe/location in person. After visiting several hotels in the main part of town (I wanted to walk to restaurants/bars, see the ocean from my room, and needed a heated pool), I settled on the Sparhawk. It's a clean, well located hotel with a nice pool (the Maine ocean is just too cold for the southern raised), and a friendly front desk staff. The room was nice (nothing special, but spacious), quiet, and comfortable. I enjoyed my two nights at the Sparkhawk and would stay there again.
