“Very Clean and Comfortable”
Reviewed 7 September 2013

We stayed one night at Sea View and were very pleased. The room was very clean and the beds were really comfortable: great mattresses! Nice and quiet even though the motel was quite full. Good continental breakfast that included hard boiled eggs, danish, toast, english muffins, cereals, bagels, juices, coffee and a good assortment of teas. This was a good place to stay.

Stayed September 2013, travelled as a couple

When we got to the motel, we were greeted by the owner and a very nice woman. Told us about the motel, and that we could park at the motel all day the following day even though we we not staying the next night. They also informed us that there was a changing area in the back (no shower) but still a place to change. The room was nice, and the bed was very comfortable.. The continental breakfast was awesome, and the coffee was even better! Will definately go back!

I agree with others on there being no actual "sea view", but that can be overlooked for the other things that compensate for that. Very spacious rooms; very clean; efficient, friendly staff; clean & well maintained pool; ample parking. The free breakfast was your average spread, but the only downfall was there really was not an actual eating area to have it. Tended to just grab & go back to hotel room for breakfast. Location of hotel is convenient to the center of town, which is where the shops & eateries are. The beach is probably a 15-20 min. walk; kind of a pain if you are toting kids & all their beach garb., toys, chairs,etc., but if it is just adults walking, then not so much of a hassle. Motel was very quiet; didn't really hear other guests or children passing by, so that was a plus. So overall, the price paid for the room was a good value, but if you have a family and are planning on going to the beach often,(and walking it), I would probably look for another place closer to the beach & pay a little more.

Room Tip: We had an end room on second level ; don't know if that made a difference with it being more qui...

Thank you for the detailed and very comprehensive review. We are one of the closer motels to the beach as we are very near the center of Ogunquit. One of our plusses is we have a Trolley Stop right in front of us. They allow you to bring beach items on the trolley and drop you right at the beach which saves you on the high cost of beach parking, up to $25! and having to load then unload your car. Thank you, JJ and Karen Mokarzel, Owners

Our family of five stayed one night in Ogunquit Beach. There is no Seaview here, and you're a healthy but do-able walk to the center of town or the beach. The trolley is available and runs every 20 minutes or so for a reasonable fee. The hotel is right on Rt. 1 so there's considerable traffic noise outside of the rooms. The hotel is clean and re-done and has everything you need. We forgot to ask for the roll-a-way bed and the woman at the front desk called the owner on the phone and he came back and delivered it to our room (I was very happy). Needless to say, the staff was very accommodating. The continental breakfast was more than adequate (the coffee was really good). They have a heated pool and a hot tub and we used both around 9pm (all to ourselves). There are some incredible hotels right on the shore-line of Ogunquit, but you will pay for the location. If you want reasonable price and clean, the Seaview is the place for you.

Thank you, we appreciate your review. I see you got to experience some our "extra efforts" to be sure you are satisfied. The Trolley is a great benefit if you choose to use it. Actually our location is one of the closest motels for actually walking to the beach, as there are not many "actual Beachfront Motels" in Ogunquit because of our beautiful sand dunes. We belive we offer one of the best values and location in Ogunquit. Thanks, JJ and Karen Mokarzel, Owners

We stayed in the 4 bedroom home that belongs to the hotel. It was a great location, about .3 miles to the stores and restaurants downtown. There was a continental breakfast included. The breakfast wasn't anything spectacular, but it got the job done. There was no fresh fruit and only 3 different types of cereal: Cheerios, Special K, and Granola.

The rooms were clean. It had a great porch. Part of it was screened and part was not. There were 2 full bathrooms with a nice big living room. The kitchen had a dishwasher and full size fridge.

The hot tub was waaaay too hot. I couldn't even get in it and my wife could only sit in it for a minute before she had to get out. Everybody else we spoke to felt the same way. The pool was nice. The water was almost warm. The pool hours are from 9am - 9pm. It would have been nice if the hours were a little longer, maybe until 10pm.

To sum it up, I think it was a nice hotel with a good location. I would go back.

Although there is no "Sea View" the hotel has beautiful, newly renovated. comfortable rooms. Within walking distance of plenty of restaurants and a quaint little village area with lots of shops. The front desk staff was very helpful.

Needed two rooms for one night for two couples with only a week's notice in mid-August - many places booked, but Sea View had two kind rooms available. Made reservations via phone, woman was very nice and sent confirmations via e-mail. Upon arrival, woman at check in desk also very nice, friendly, informative - what's not to like? Rooms were big, with plenty of towels - 4 sets of everything, and the chairs outside each door were a treat to sit at and enjoy the view.

Sea View offers a continental breakfast - coffee, juice, rolls, hard boiled eggs, cereal, etc., but other than the coffee, we opted to just walk across the street to the Omelette Factory and their huge omelet breakfasts. A nice convenient location, and a good place to stay.
