“Layover to Summer Vacation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2014

This Motel is the perfect location for a stay in Ogunquit. We used to stand in Perkins Cove and look over at it and wonder what you had to do to get a room there. It was so easy-just call. This is the cleanest motel/hotel I have ever stayed in. It is no t fancy, but you have everything you need and the location cannot be beat. We park the car the first day, and don't move it until it is time to leave. What a great find!

Room Tip: Can't go wrong, every room has a water view!

Riverside has always been a favorite. The rooms, while simple, are clean and comfortable. The location is absolutely the best you will find in Southern Maine! Being in the cove is the perfect spot. Being so close to the water you can smell the salt air and listen to the clanging of the bells on the boats.

Room Tip: Personally, I think the lower level is nicer. The rooms may be a bit smaller, but opening your door...

Room Tip: I think any room would be fine

This place is always the best place to stay on the Maine coast, so clean, friendly, and the view is the reason anyone goes to Maine. We've stayed here multiple times, and wouldn't stay anywhere else. The staff are very helpful, will get you anything you need at any time, the grounds are gorgeous, and we love the balcony!

Room Tip: Go to Building B for the best view of the footbridge and fishing village.

This was our first trip to Riverside and I hope it won't be our last. My husband and I go to the York area in the off-season but he had dropped the hint that he wanted to stay here "sometime". Our room was perfect - spotless and beautifully decorated. We made good use of the deck and appreciate the fact that each patio had the courtesy chain, 2 chairs, the side table, and one chaise.

The grounds are immaculate and the staff are some of the nicest folks we have ever met. We definitely appreciated the complementary continental breakfast each morning. I have to say that I preferred the cranberry muffin over the blueberry!

The location is perfect. We parked the car at the door, and other than driving to Mimmo's for dinner, it stayed there the whole time. Wallking over the drawbridge to Perkins Cove, the Marginal Way, and the Trolley was as easy as could be. Despite the activity over in the Cove, it is definitely relaxing to sip a glass a wine on your patio while watching the lobster and tour boats.

The highlight of the weekend was getting to see President George H.W. Bush return to his power boat after lunching at the Cove. Geoff - did you arrange that?

The only "request" I would like to pass along, and I am sure that there is a good reason for not having it, would be to add online reservations. I must say that emailing my reservation request back and forth with Geoff was a very smooth process.

Here's hoping that we become Riverside "regulars". Thank you Geoff for the opportunity to experience your motel!

Room Tip: Couples should request Building A - King to ensure your upper floor patio and a more panoramic view...

Our first trip (and first vacation!) to Ogunquit could not have been better. The location, view and tranquility were exactly what we needed. We had easy access to Perkins Cove restaurants and shops along with taking a great ride on the Silverlining. The Riverside Motel was away from the hustle and bustle and walking or taking the Trolley was easy. This will be an annual visit for sure!

Room Tip: There are a great options depending on what kind of experience and view you want.

Our trip to Ogunquit was wonderful and our experience at Riverside was nothing short of excellent. Each staff member greeted us with a smile from the moment we arrived. The majestic tree that stands at the entrance of the property is beautiful and classic. The grounds at the property are immaculately maintained.

The room we had overlooking the water and Perkins Cove was quiet, peaceful, and clean - you could not find a spot of dust even if you hunted for it!

Sitting on our balcony watching the lobster boats in morning and evening was peaceful and just what we needed to unwind from our busy lives in Boston.

Looking forward to a return visit to Riverside.
