This was our 3rd year in a row here and we just completed a short 3 day stay. We love everything about this jewel of a place from the front desk, room quality, million dollar view, beautifully kept grounds, and friendly housekeeping staff. Thank you for making the continental breakfast just right if you want more than coffee to get your day going. We cannot thank the owners Nancy and Geoff enough for having this special place available. You made it very hard for us again to leave Perkins Cove, but we are already talking about our 2015 plans.

Room Tip: Building A King Suite Upper Floor...so worth it. By all means do park the car and use the trolley to...

My Ogunquit trip with my mother turned out to be better than we had ever imagined it would be. Reason: We booked at the Riverside Motel! The perfect place for a vacation to restore one's soul. Geoff, the owner, works tirelessly to ensure that his guests have a comfortable and enjoyable stay. The gracious staff is warm, welcoming, and most efficient. Rooms are spotless and comfy. There is a satisfying array of breakfast items, including fresh homemade donuts and muffins, fruit, and yogurt. The location is peaceful -- just steps from the lovely little cove where working boats rest -- but convenient to restaurants/activities by way of a footbridge (no need to use your car), views are amazing and surroundings are beautiful. It was a fantastic experience; highly recommended.

Thank you Supreme F for taking the time to tell the Trip Advisor readers about the Riverside.
The peaceful location is definitely difficult to imagine until one relaxes on this side of the Cove for a few minutes. Our "oasis from the stressful world" is almost impossible to describe with words.
Our staff appreciates your kind comments about our spotless rooms, our number one goal.
Best wishes!

This was our second stay at Riverside and we were just as happy with it as the first time. The rooms are clean and comfortable (in fact one of the couples we were staying with had a newly renovated room that was really nice, I think it was #40). The location is perfect, a short walk over the bridge to the stores and restaurants in Perkins Cove, or better yet, just sit out on the lush lawn and relax, overlooking the pretty cove. Prices are very fair and include a continental breakfast. Finally the staff is very accommodating, knowledgeable and friendly.

Room Tip: second floor rooms have a view of the ocean, first floor rooms have easy access to the lawn which ru...

It was our first time in Ogunquit and stayed at this motel in Perkins Cove, which is the view from any room. Rooms are clean, quite basic, nothing fancy. The desk staff are very friendly and welcoming.

It is a very short walk to the Marginal Way. A longer walk to Ogunquit beach, if you would like to swim or hang out, but the trolley stops at Perkins Cove and can take you there.

Good location and hotel and I would recommend this place to anyine visiting Ogunquit who would like to relax and enjoy the view of the boats and sea.

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...
