This hotel is a hidden gem in the small village of Ogunquit. Fantastic views (especially of the river and dunes that stretch toward Wells) and hospitable front desk service from a lovely young woman named Wendy. By all means ask for this sweet girl if you book here! She will do her best to get you the room you want and point you in all the right directions. We met Bev during our stay too and this woman is extremely nice and will go out of her way to help you out. These two woman make the resort what it is.
What the resort isn't, is updated. We know that it was purchased last year and although some improvements have been made to the grounds (BEAUTIFUL flower boxes and impeccable landscaping), the rooms need some TLC. The hotel is closed for half the year and if they just did one building a year in renovations they could cash in on what is undeniably the BEST location in town as it is situated only steps from the quaint downtown shops and restuarants and still commands beautiful river and ocean views and is several hundred feet from the ocean. Owners take note - we want to come back year after year! Please remodel! And don't let Wendy or Bev go - they make the hotel exceptional!
