“Fantastic Girls' Getaway Weekend at The Terrace”
Reviewed 18 April 2011

I have written several reviews of The Terrace By The Sea in the past, each based on stays with my husband. This past weekend, I went with 2 girlfriends for a long weekend. We had a great time! They had never been to Ogunquit and loved it, and our room was absolutely perfect. We had 2 queen beds, with2 chairs and a TV downstairs, and a loft with pull-out sofa and sitting area in the loft upstairs. Perfect for the 3 of us! Also had a fridge and the best part was that there were 2 sinks - one in the bathroom and one off the bathroom. This was the first time I had stayed in the motel part and it was really very nice. On Saturday, we returned to the room to drop off a few things and it was being cleaned. There were 3 staff members cleaning the room - including one person who was scrubbing the bathroom floor. All 3 were very, very pleasant and did a wonderful job of cleaning the room (not that we had left it messy!). The rooms have consistently been spotless. Front desk check-in was smooth (2 hours early, too!), breakfast was the usual juices, coffee, breads/bagels, fresh fruits, cereals. We took advantage of the free wireless access with absolutely no problems in the room. We have been wanting to try The Sparhawk or The Beachmere at some point, but keep going back to The Terrace. After 5 years of visits, it is still the best!!!!

We have stayed several times. I cant speak for the motel part but the main house, the Inn is delightful. The rooms arent fancy but lovely. The location is unbelievable.
Beautiful views. Walk to all in town but set back from the main road. Bedding is spotless and comfortable. The whole inn is impecable. Very nice mainly older clientele we notice in the off season when we go. Continental breakfast wonderful. Fruits, Cereals, Breads, muffins, juices and more in a lovely area with quaint small tables.
Highly recommend.

We stayed one night in Room 100, the small room off the lobby. The room was small but cozy and even had a view of the ocean. The staff when we checked in was very friendly and helped direct us to the Marginal Way so that we could walk to Perkins Cove for dinner. The grounds are beautifully landscaped, a very restful spot to sit and watch the ocean. The inn is also just a short walk to the beach. The breakfast provided by the inn is ample, with fresh fruit, yogurt, cereal, bagels and english muffins to toast. There is coffee and hot water(for tea) available throughout the day. I would definitely stay here again if my travel plans take me to Ogunquit.

`We have stayed several times in the front motel rooms, right on the water, but this time we went last minute and needed 2 rooms since we were traveling just for the 1 night with my parents. We stayed in the main inn and actually, to our surprise, it was really nice! For the least expensive rooms, we expected tiny, with no view, and we were wrong! Our rooms were upstairs and had windows where you could actually see the water, and you could hear it at night when you were falling asleep. The light breakfast in the morning is always good - bagels, fresh fruits, yogurts, dry cereals, coffee, juice. I had trouble sleeping (not any fault of the hotel's) and went outside and sat for about an hour around midnight - I felt safe even though it was so quiet there. My parents had a room with 2 twins and the mattress was great. As always, the rooms were spotless. We had been in Lake George earlier in the week,which was really nice, but Ogunquit is still the most gorgeous place to us!

My husband and I have stayed at Terrace by the Sea for a number of years. The location is great. This year, for the first time, we stayed in the main house. Although the room was clean and bright it was VERY small and located in the lobby. So if you go, you may want to avoid room #100 unless you want to feel like your sleeping in a closet.

I just read some reviews and must admit the desk staff is not as good as it was last year, or the year before etc. We have stayed at the Terrace 3 years now, and will be staying for a week next August also. The rooms are superb, all clean, spacious, well-maintained, and our room has an ocean view that cannot be topped. Assigned parking is new this year, and works very nicely.
Having started with the desk staff, I will now say that some of the desk staff is from years past, very knowledgeable about Ogunquit, very friendly, very helpful. Perhaps next year they all will be like that.
