“Bad experience”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2014

Room was moldy, musty smelling. Beds on wheels kept rolling away from the walls. Got home and any clothes that we took out of our suitcase while in the motel room stunk of mold. I washed them, but I can still smell it! So not worth the money paid to stay there.

Room Tip: Do not stay in the garden terrace rooms!

We are sorry this guest was not happy and wrote a poor review, It disturbs us tremendously when this occurs as we strive for 100% satisfaction. We only wish the guest had addressed the concerns directly with us, we would have done everything to accommodate the guest. It's just not possible when we are not informed. The only way we can improve, our daily mission, is to listen and learn from our great guests, thank you, JJ and Karen Mokarzel, Owners

We stayed at the Motel in July and had an excellent time. It's within walking distance to downtown and even the beach. The trolley stopped in front of the hotel but we ended up driving to the beach b/c of everything we carried for our 3 year old. They provided a pack and play for my son and housekeeping even made sure to tuck his action figures in his blanket! We enjoyed the pool and breakfast one day. I would definitely stay at Sea View in the future.

Very confortable clean motel. Personnel very friendly and helpful. Hotel is close to the beach and to various restaurants. Trolly stops in front of the hotel for those who don't want to walk to the beach. Very useful, since parking your car at the beach is quite expensive. Free breakfast is not very elaborated but ok with toasts, muffins and fresh fruits.


One negative point: the air conditioning is very noisy. I wish we could have the choice of opening a window instead.

Overall, I would recommend this hotel.

Thank you for the nice review and recommendation. Location and trolley are sure plusses, guests love them both. We will look at all AC units ASAP and be sure they are running quiet as they are all new. Thank you, JJ and Karen Mokarzel, Owners

My friends and I chose this hotel because of it's proximity to the town and we were not disappointed! The large room was great for three of us to share. The pool area was nice and we were offered the chance to relax by the pool since we arrived before our room was ready. It was very convenient to be able to walk into town, but there is also a trolley stop right out front. Great spot!

Great room. Friendly staff. Like that they don't require minimum stays. Close to downtown. Pool is clean and well maintained. Front desk staff is very friendly and accommodating. Refrigerators and microwaves in every room. Rooms are large.

We recently stayed at the Seaview for just a couple of nights on our trip down the Maine Coast.
We have been staying at the seaview at different times during the year for probably the last ten years . Every year we see improvements to the motel rooms and the property. The property shows the efforts of someone that cares about it and what service that can be offered to the guests. JJ, Karen, Shirley and the rest of the staff you are doing a wonderful job keep at it

My husband and I just spent another wonderful week-end in gorgeous Ogunquit, Maine. The weather was spectacular and as always everyone at the Sea View went out of their way to welcome us back for another season, especially the owner JJ and Shirley and Nosko who work in the office. Seeing all the friendly faces and happy employees is one of the many reasons we continue to frequent this establishment year after year!! We know now that summer is not too far away and after a long cold winter, that's something to look forward to! Thanks again for your kindness and hospitality everyone and as always, the place looks great. See you again soon. Deb and Kev
