“We love it!”
Reviewed 30 May 2012

We stayed at Milestone last summer with my hubby and stayed there again with my parents and two children for the Memorial day weekend. We love it! Rooms are spacious and very clean, staff is very friendly and the continental breakfast is a plus. We like that it is a walking distance to the beach. Our 2 year-old boy loved the swimming pool:) We had a gorgeous weekend there and would definitely be back!

We booked this at the last minute for Memorial Day weekend as we wanted to get away. The price was very reasonable for that weekend at $139/night. The place is very well kept, the rooms are clean and the staff was all very friendly. Its about a mile out (which makes sense from the name) and is an easy walk into town. The beach is a short 5 minute walk. For those that like to have a couple of libations with dinner, we would recommend walking, the police were actively checking sobriety. Its a nice walk, take advantage of it :)

Location is slightly outside of Ogunquit but right along the trolley route. It's a good spot because it's close enough to the village but far enough that you will not be caught in traffic. Very clean and you can usually park close to your door to your hotel room. The staff is very attentive and wifi always seemed to work well (and it's free).

My husband and I stopped at the Milestone on the way up the coast of Maine. It was a very comfortable night's rest. We were met with a great breakfast in the morning. The town is charming. It was all a great experience.

Since I wrote a review stating the Milestone charged us the night we had to cancel due to illness, the management graciously issued a full refund. I believe if the staff on duty had been aware of all the circumstances and had contacted the manager before strictly following policy, there would not have been a problem.
I would definitely stay at the Milestone if I travel to Ogunquit.

The Milestone is set on a slope with several buildings (4) on various levels. The meticulously kept grounds and buildings are picture perfect. Situated about 2 miles from the centre of Ogunquit, it is just across one the foot bridges to the beach.

The rooms have recently been updated (marble counters!). Our unit had a small fridge under the counter and the sink was also in this par of the room. The bathroom consisted of the toilet and bathtub/shower.

The rooms have double beds and that was a drawback for us. Two adults sharing one of the double beds wasn't the most comfortable sleep.

Just outside our door the passageway with overhand offered us a wnderful place to have late afternoon cocktails. Two outdoor chairs were in front of each unit. Almost every day, we sat outdoors, met some of neighbours and enjoyed a cool cocktail.

Continental breakfast in the lobby is just perfect. There is enough variety to please most people. The area is kept clean. There are a lot of windows so it's bright and airy and music is piped in.

The staff of the Milestone are exceptional. Friendly and caring, ther were very helpful when during our stay there, a hurricane cut power to all of the area. They came to our room to offer flashlights and other supplies.

There is one computer in the lobby for customer access.

There is also a well equipped gym, a clean laundry room and a pool and hot tub.

Right near the Milestone (walking distance) are a few good restaurants so no need to go into town.

It appears that many people go back ever year and we can understand why. Ogunquit is a beautiful place and the Milestone in a perfect choice.

Room Tip: Ask for a deluxe room!

I was very pleased with my accommodations for this short nite (arrived 10PM left 7AM) stay. The bed was super -- wish I hadn't had to leave so early! Towels med plush. Fridge came in handy - especially if you want milk in your coffee. Lobby inviting, although I didn't stay for breakfast as I headed over to Amore for some Lobster Benedict - YUM! I would definitely stay here again . . . and hope to!
