“The only place to stay in Ogunquit”
Reviewed 8 September 2013

From booking to check out it is very obvious; housekeepers, grounds, breakfast crew and management; your visit is as important to them as it is for you!
Friendliness of staff; beyond expectations
Cleanliness; Exceptional
Room; Perfect layout. Easy entry. Always updated. Beautiful view from your balcony.
A true New England treasure.
Value; best in the area!
We have been staying at the Riverside 5 years now. My wife requires oxygen and a wheelchair.
Never a problem. Each year the staff remembers us and goes out of their way to make our stay the best.
This year we stayed over a weekend. The traffic worried me. I was pleasantly surprised that it was quite manageable form this perfect location.
Our stay is planned around the Beach 2 Beacon 10K in Cape Elizabeth, some 45 miles away.
Years ago I tried Old Orchard Beach area. I'm sorry but other places cannot meet the high level of value, quality and warmth the Riverside provides.
Geoff and his staff always are open to helping with our small needs and arrangements.

Our favorite restaurants; Katie's on the Shore and Clay Farms in Nedick.

I am so glad we found the Riverside.

My daughter and I spent three beautiful days in August at the Riverside. It was the perfect
spot. The room was very clean as stated in the other reviews. A very relaxing and peaceful spot overlooking the cove and the boats. It was so easy to relax on the grounds and yet so close to the shops and wonderful restaurants. We stayed right there most of the time because we lacked nothing. We did go out on the ocean for a beautiful sailboat ride. Nice walks,great shopping and really good restaurants just over the footbridge. My daughter enjoyed it so much she and her husband are going back this month for a few days. I hope to go back next year.

Room Tip: We were on the ground level We may try the balcony next time.

This was our third stay at Riverside Motel and once again, our expectations were exceeded. All staff were courteous and helpful; room/balcony was immaculate; views breathtaking; peace and quiet - exactly what we were looking for. Location couldn't be better - access to shops, restaurants, boating excursions just across the footbridge. We would recommend this motel to anyone seeking a relaxing vacation just steps away from all seaside activities!

We have stayed at the Riverside for a number of years now and people frequently comment on how friendly the staff is and how clean everything is. This year, as we were first going to our room, our housekeeper who has been at the Riverside for several years, came running up to us, said "I remember you, welcome back," and then gave both of us a big hug. Now that's friendly. Later, when we went into our room after walking the Marginal Way, there was a bag sitting on the table that neither of us remember bringing with us. We looked in it, and to our surprise, there were two "Jamaica, No Problem" t-shirts and a bag of Jamaican coffee that both our housekeepers brought for us. They had remembered that last year we told them we had visited Jamaica about 20 years ago and had bought a similar t-shirt then. All the staff are friendly and do their very best to make sure you enjoy your stay. We've already booked for next year.

We were initially impressed by the reviews on TripAdvisor, but nothing compared to being there. My husband & I had looked across the water before & said, "What's that place? What a great place to be!" So this year, with just a few days to ourselves, we chose Riverside, and were VERY pleased! From the moment we were greeted in the "lobby", to staff passing by, right down to the pleasant conversation with the owner, about guitars and music, on our last day -- everyone was nice. The continental was so fresh! I miss it....

After reading several great reviews on trip advisor, we decided to book this motel for our summer vacation. We were NOT disappointed at all!! This motel is clean, the staff is very friendly, rooms are very clean, the contentential breakfast was good, the views awesome and very conveniently located. We loved watching the lobster boats coming and going. Perkin's Cove is just over the Footbridge where you can shop/eat. You can also walk the Marginal Way which starts over in Perkin's Cove or pick up the Trolley into town. We will definately return!!

Room Tip: The balconies are the rooms to get!! We loved having breakfast out on ours and a snack at night.

We had a mother/daughter weekend together and chose the Riverside Motel in Perkins Cove, Ogunquit, Maine. The room was a delight looking out into the small cove and fishing boats and the sea beyond. The room was immaculately clean and each day taken good care of by "Alishia". Breakfast in the cozy pine panelled breakfast room and sunny deck was a delight as were the "Wild Maine Blueberry Muffins" served. Riverside Postcards were already stamped, ready to send to friends. A PURE DELIGHT!! we can't wait to go back. Oh yes! after too much eating, the closeby Marginal Way walkway is just a delight along the ocean.
