We spent a wonderful mini-vacation at The Terrace by the Sea in Ogunquit, Maine. We had expected to check in around 3:00 as advertised, but we were pleasantly surprised when we inquired about parking at around 1:00 were told our room was ready. The room was spotlessly clean with lots of windows that could actually open to let in the lovely sea breeze. There was a view of the beach from most of the windows. The room was spacious and an outside porch with two chairs and a table made a nice outside sitting area. Breakfast was served on the outside porch of the main building overlooking the lovely lawn with a flowery border that swept down to the great view of the ocean. It was calm and quiet despite being just steps from the Shore Road, which was filled with shops and restaurants. It was just a short walk on a pathway down to the beach. There was also a very nice outdoor pool with lots of lounge chairs and umbrellas. I would recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for an ocean view. Some rooms don't have one.

Nice property with a beautiful view. Great location in walking distance to shops, restaurants, and the beach. The room seemed recently renovated and clean. Staff on the property was helpful and friendly. There were a few areas for improvement. Wifi was terrible. For $270 a night I would like to see robes in the rooms and a door or curtain to the closet. Breakfast was a big disappointment of prepackaged foods so we opted to dine down the street. Luckily there are lots of options for dining nearby.

We just got back from this spot and loved it. Location is superb (both to downtown and the big beach), accommodations were great, never heard neighbors, breakfast was good and the grounds were well maintained.

Our 6 and 9 yr old loved the pool and the ocean view outdoor patio off our room. We stayed in 133 and 130, both second floor loft units. Kids also loved the separate and unique loft space and immediately took it over upon arrival.

Housekeeping was amazing, we decided to stay an extra night, which meant moving to a new room, and they moved all our stuff to include the soap from the soap dishes. Very nice people.

We usually stay in the main inn.
Location is great. Children under 6 years are not allowed during peak season, so there are very few families . It is quiet and peaceful.
Wifi is an issue.
We spoke to the front staff- nick being the owners son. They are " supposed" to upgrade the system.
We were sorry to hear that Darlene had left- after 30 years or so!
The new staff need training and time to learn what to say and do.
Other than that, we would recommend it to our friends and we keep going back.

We just spent a last minute, 2 night stay at the Terrace. Our actual vacation there will be later this month. After 11 years we still come back - our 6 nights just for us to relax, especially after a week with 4 children and spouses and 8 grandchildren. Our only complaint is the inadequate wifi, Not sure if it is our room, but we are always being dropped and then need to wait to connect again. Very annoying! Office staff listen, but seem to be patronizing us. Also annoying!

Room Tip: Front motel units are fabulous!!!
