Riverside Motel
Ranked #3 of 36 Hotels in Ogunquit
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 September 2014

A comfortable and clean motel overlooking a small cove filled with fishing boats and sailboats . Immaculate grounds although the hotel says welcoming guests since 1880 it had to be renovated lately it is like new and very clean the the room attendant even wipes every post of our balcony in the morning. Located in Perkins cove you just have to cross a foot bridge for great restaurants and boutiques. It has also access to the Marginal Way trail a trail that outlines the beautiful beaches of Ogunquit the trail is lined with breathtaking greenery and flowers. A photographers paradise.

Just came back from another wonderful stay at the Riverside. The staff seems like family to us as they welcome us back with big hugs. Incredibly clean, peaceful, fantastic view. What more can I say? Can't wait until next time.

My wife and I stayed for two nights last September.
We had been in the USA for two weeks touring around New England and this was our last stop on the way back to Boston for our flight home. After so much travelling we were ready for a couple of relaxing days and that is exactly what we got!
We found the Riverside Motel on Trip Advisor and were pleased with the excellent reviews we saw. We booked via email and stayed in a balcony level room.
The Room - very big, with a double bed (maybe king? I can't remember), two arm chairs, a writing desk and ample space to store our luggage. The balcony had two chairs and a table - and a spectacular view of the picturesque Perkin's Cove. Honestly, I could have spent hours sitting out there watching the boats come and go.
Breakfast was self service in the main building, both mornings we brought it back to our balcony. Lovely!
There is a footbridge which links the two sides of the cove and on the otherside are shops, restaurants and other businesses. It's very small and so easily walkable, but there is a lot to see and do there. There is a coastal walk (the Marginal Way) that leads into Ogunquit, this is well worth doing and doesn't take long - from memory about half an hour. There are more shops and restaurants in Ogunquit. From there you can walk back or take the trolley bus (which we did).
All in all we had a fabulous couple of days at the Riverside and only wish we stayed closer - we'd be back for sure!
Thank you Riverside Motel, what a perfect end to our holiday!

Room Tip: Book a balcony level room - you have a fabulous view over the cove.

Great place to stay. Clean and bardic but quiet at night as in Perkins Cove. Walk along the marginal way if take the Tolley to Ogunquit. Great coffee and continental breakfast....healthy muffins, cereal, juice and the most amazing donuts!

Will stay there again!

Room Tip: All rooms are great, some have balconies and others are at grass level and have stair access if you...

Right on the water, across the drawbridge in Perkin's Cove. You are a minute's walk to the galleries, shoppes, and good restaurants. Boat trips at the pier! Very near the marginal way scenic walk! The rooms are clean and comfortable, but nothing luxurious. A good place for families.

We've stayed at the Riverside Motel several times and are looking forward to staying there again.
The rooms are very clean; the staff is very friendly and helpful. All rooms offer a wonderful view of Perkins Cove and the location is excellent. There is a foot bridge adjacent to the Riverside that gives you access to many restaurants, shops, boat cruises and the Marginal Way which offers breathtaking views of the Maine coast. We recommended the Riverside to several friends all of whom have stayed there and all had enjoyable experiences.
We highly recommend the Riverside Motel for a relaxing wonderful experience.

Room Tip: We prefer the balcony level rooms. However all rooms offer a wonderful view of the cove.

Staying at Riverside is a highlight of our summer. Friendly, welcoming staff, clean rooms, beautiful view and always relaxing. Recent improvements enhanced this summer's experience. Beds now more comfortable for a good night's sleep.
