“Pleasantly surprised”
Reviewed 27 May 2013

The photos of the rooms do not do them justice. Very clean and comfortable with a touch of elegance at a very affordable price. Rooms are cozy and have everything you'll need. Microwave and refrigerator with gas grills on every level. Close to everything. Restaurants, beaches, shopping and more. We can't wait to come back and stay again in the summer because the weather didn't give us an opportunity to use the pool and outdoor spa. Owners JJ and Karen are helpful and go out of their way to make you comfortable.

Room Tip: We love the king bed in room 6.

We stayed at the Sea View during part of our Honeymoon 30 years ago. While the Sea View has different owners, they still have the family run charm. Friendly attentive staff, clean, well appointed rooms. We won't stay away so long next time.
I travel for business on a frequent basis and stay at the large chains, but this is my preference!

This was our 4th time staying at the Sea View and it was great. Good location, the room was clean and the beds were very comfortable. It had everything we needed, refrigerator, microwave, BIG flat screen TV and good Wi-Fi. The continental breakfast was just right. The staff can't be beat. Everyone is very friendly and helpful, especially Shirley at the front desk, she made our stay. We met the owners, JJ and Karen and they were wonderful. When we stay at a motel it's all about value and customer service and you can't beat the Sea View.

Thank you once again for being one of our special and frequent retuning guests. Shirley will be thrilled that you specifically mentioned her. She goes above and beyond, like all of us here at the Sea View Motel to ensure your total satisfaction. It was nice meeting you as well, be sure to say Hello again next time you are our guest.

The staff was wonderful and so nice! The rooms were very clean and the bed was extrmemely comfortable. In the morning you can have breakfast outside on tables. The location was great as you could walk everywhere. We really enjoyed our brief stay but we were most unhappy with the noise above our room. Should give a little warning for people who do not get up at 6:30 or so because you heard EVERY footstep/creaky flooring. (but granted these people werent being gentle on the feet either). Perhaps this is just over where we were staying, but i can say this. We would most definately go back to this lovely motel, we just will not stay on the 2nd floor.

Room Tip: The King bed is most comfortable and you may want to ask for a 3rd floor room.

We've stayed at the Seaview for several years now, usually 2-3 times a season. It's always been an outstanding experience in every detail! The motel is ALWAYS clean and very well- maintained. The housekeepers, front desk staff and the owners make you feel as though you are staying at a friend's house rather merely a motel. They are all very courteous and accomodating, working hard to make your stay as pleasant as possible. Also, we have never had an issue with noisy, rowdy neighbors as is sometimes the case with facilities in a tourist destination. The Seaview is the place to go for a peaceful, relaxing vacation. The new beds are great! The only thing that changes about the motel's quality is that each season improvements are made that makes it even better. The Seaview is the perfect place to stay in Ogunquit!

Room Tip: All of the rooms are great. If you do have a preference just let the staff know. They're very he...

My wife & I decided to go to Maine for our 20th wedding anniversary. A friend said that we should go to Ogunquit as it is a wonderful small town with friendly people and great food. He was right. Since we had never been to Maine, we looked to reviews of places to stay and chose the Sea View Motel. We were glad we did! From our check in experience through our 5 night stay, we were very impressed with the staff, the amenities, and the room. The free breakfast offered a wonderful selection, including yogurt and fresh fruit. Since the weather was exceptionally nice, (we were there in late October), we spent many mornings eating at the table and chairs outside our room. This let us talk with other guests and it made for a very pleasant experience! Our room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The small refrigerator and microwave were clean and worked well. Since the Sea View was in the middle of Ogunquit, we were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go. Overall, this was a fantastic place to stay and if we go back to Ogunquit, the Sea View Motel will be our place to stay.
