“Perfect location!”
Reviewed 19 August 2014 via mobile

Loved the location in Perkins Cove. We walked everywhere and had our choice of many great restaurants. The Marginal Way is three minutes away, and the beach is about a twenty minute gorgeous walk. We rarely saw anyone in the lobby so it is hard to rate the staff. Basic breakfast and basic rooms in need of renovation in the 1874 house. However, the Riverside is quiet, very pretty surroundings, and we would most definitely stay there again.

This was our second year at the Riverside and It was even better than we remembered.. Beautiful views, immaculate quiet rooms, pleasant staff ,ample parking and the most luscious orange cranberry muffins for breakfast. The location is perfect, a short drive to the beaches of York or a walk down Marginal Way to Ogunquit who could ask for More!

Thank you tkjbd for sharing your Riverside visit with the Trip Advisor readers.
Gradually, the best kept secret of our complimentary continental breakfast is becoming more popular. Yes, one used to find a few Orange-cranberry muffins hidden behind the dozens of Maine Blueberry muffins. We will soon need to edit the ratio of our bakery orders.......again!
Best wishes for a beautiful remainder of your summer!

This my second stay at the Riverside Motel, the grounds are beautifully kept, the housekeeping staff is very friendly and the location in Perkins Cove is the best. On this past trip i stayed for four nights, in the future I hope to make it much longer. Thanks to Geoff for making all my stays memorable.

Room Tip: All rooms are excellent with wonderful views.

We again stayed at the Riverside Motel in Ogunquit, ME recently as it is our "escape location" each summer. The staff are very friendly, the rooms are very comfortable and the locations can't be beat. Waking up and looking outside our lower level picture window we see the ocean, we see the lobster boats and we see lovely Perkins Cove. Not a bad way to start the day. Walking the Marginal Way is a must. The views are breath taking. The ocean was inviting and body surfing was on our list of things to do for sure. After a day of this it was cocktails and dinner. The Roost was our first stop. Excellent. The next night it was Roberto Restaurant. Very, very good and the last night we went to CoZap (Thia). After a bumpy start the finish was excellent. We can't way to go back to the Riverside Motel in 2015. Its our little get-a-way. It is a "gem" of a motel.

Room Tip: If you want to walkout onto the green grass pick the lower level rooms. The upstairs rooms are large...

After a variety of rooms over 10 days, this was how we ended our Maine vacation. Clean, roomy, views. Loved that we could walk to dinner and not mess with driving in the crazy August traffic! I know there are Trolleys but I don't know how often they run. The Marginal Way is a nice walk. It's a bit of a haul to the beach, but perfect for a early morning walk and then breakfast at the beach to fortify us for the return! Would certainly stay here again!

Thank you mateome for sharing your vacation with the T/A community. We are happy that the Riverside was the final stop, wish you were still here! Trolleys try to be on the 30 minute schedule in the Cove, but the traffic IS crazy, agreed!! We are fortunate that we are a two minute walk to more than 7 restaurants, and many gift shops, and art galleries. No automobiles needed for a month at the Riverside.
We look forward to your next visit!

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!
