“awesome hotel”
Reviewed 16 August 2014

This is my second visit to this hotel. The room is huge with plenty of space. The room was clean and the front desk people are friendly and will help you out with anything. They can improve the breakfast giving people more choices. It is in a good location. The shower sucked! No water pressure at all!! I felt like I still had shampoo in my hair, they had to change that compared to the last time I was there. They have a nice pool that is warm so after you go in the freezing cold ocean you can get warmed up. A hot tub is available also. Overall, I would return.

Room Tip: Better off on the top floor less noise.

We have been returning to this motel for several years now, and stayed for 3 nights in June. The price was amazing, compared to the going rates in the area, as the room faced the outside parking area. The room was clean, but definitely had a musty smell. It must have been closed off during the winter. Breakfast has not changed in years, and has the usual toast, oatmeal, donuts, muffins and danishes (from frozen). Just enough to get going in the morning. Pool and hot tub are great, and the bonus is being able to walk to the beach. Will definitely return .... Though it would be nice if they would give consideration to repeat guests !

The room was clean and the beds comfy. The breakfast was quite ordinary. The place where it was served was a bit depressing (a basement with white walls and white plastic table+ chairs; 5 tables...around 30 places in total) and the lady who was there was not smiling a lot. Good front-desk service; quick check-in and check-out. Too far from the Footbridge beach to go by foot with children. Great soundproofing, though...We did not hear our neighbours and they did not hear our daughters. I would try somewhere else before coming back to this place.

We're approximately 1/2 mile from the Footbridge Beach. Not more than a 15 minute walk.

Our family of four stayed here two nights to enjoy the beach and explore the area. Our room and bathroom were clean and large enough for the four of us, and the motel was conveniently located between downtown Ogunquit and Wells. Footbridge Beach was lovely. We also enjoyed the pool. Our room (224) had a nice distant view of the ocean. I agree with previous reviews that the breakfast is too carb heavy -- there was not even a cereal/milk option, and the yogurt cups need to be chilled. They tasted a bit "off". Overall, this motel met our needs and the staff were friendly.

Room Tip: Second floor oceanview is nice! No elevator though, so be prepared to carry luggage.

The room was adequate. We were on the second floor facing a side street with a pizza restaurant and an ice-cream shop. It was relatively quiet. Lots of dust in the room, however - the table around the fridge and the space around the tv were covered with a layer of dust. No room to hang towels (some people hang them on chairs outside their rooms). No elevator. WiFi is free, but didn't work in our room at all. The breakfast was OK. the motel is a 15-20 min walk away from the beach and a drive (or a trolley ride) to the center of town. We enjoyed the beach itself - very clean, wide with wonderful sand and no huge crowds. But next time we will stay somewhere else.

Glad that you enjoyed our beautiful beaches, and I apologize for the wireless. We did experience a problem over the weekend, but have since had the part replaced.

Chose this place based on the size of the pool, its proximity to Footbridge Beach, and the free breakfast. Stayed in room 117 the last week of July, which is on the left side facing some woods, and was perfect as it cut down on the pool noise (the smells from the nearby restaurant were a bonus). Room had two queen beds and one twin, a small fridge, small table with two chairs, and flat screen tv (didn't really use the tv, but the fridge was handy). Pool was far larger than at other resorts in Ogunquit, and our two boys took full advantage. The hot tub was nice as well. Breakfast is Continental style - Danish, muffins, toast, yogurt, coffee and juice. Everything store bought, but hey, it was included and saved on having to go out to eat every morning.

In terms of location, there are several places to eat within easy walking distance. We enjoyed the Post Road Tavern Restaurant right next door - great food, good service, and they brew their own beer. Angelina's, a more pricey Italian place is about a 3 minute walk further on. There's a pizza place and an ice cream/candy shop within yards of the resort in the opposite direction and plenty of other spots within a short drive. However, if you want to spend a lot of time shopping/eating/walking Marginal Way in the downtown area, you may want to stay somewhere where you can walk from your hotel (there's limited free parking downtown, but after about 6:00 you can often find a spot).

Footbridge Beach is about a 1/2 mile walk away, which is far if you have kids and are lugging a lot of stuff. We drove and paid the $20 fee to park in the beach lot. Beach is very wide at low tide, but there was plenty of space even when it got crowded in the afternoon. Water is cold, but shallow, and there were lifeguards. Bathrooms and a snack shack were also present and appreciated.

All in all, the combination of location, pool size, and price made this ideal for our family.

Other things to know:
- there's a shuttle trolley that runs through town and to the beaches - $2/adult $1/child each way. We didn't use it;
- traffic on the two lane road through the shore towns can really back up - if you're heading out for the day,leave early;
- if you go up to Portland, take 95 - Route 1 took forever!
- the Ogunquit Playhouse was fun!
- we did the Kittery outlets and Portsmouth, NH one day when it rained; Outlets were the same as anywhere else, but Portsmouth was really nice;
- for ice cream, drive North about 2 miles on Route 1 to Scoop Deck- HUGE portions!
- Dunkin Donuts for morning coffee is adjacent to the Sunoco station about a mile north. It's easy to miss.

Best recommendation from a friend!! We visited Ogunquit July 25th & 26th, my friend and I took our kids away for a "mini" little vacation! I was pleasantly surprised upon walking into our spacious room!! We stayed in room 111 which was a view of the pool, great size room, very comfortable beds & a huge bathroom!!! The kids fell in love with the pool & the hot tub! It was nice to just relax at the pool after a long day at the beach & even the pool area was immaculate! Very clean establishment! I would recommend to anyone and will def keep an eye on these specials I keep reading about, I hope I didn't miss out on one during my stay!!!

Room Tip: I really liked the location we were in, Room 111, would like to maybe get a balcony for my next visi...
