“Maine perfect”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2013

As others have noticed, this resort is in the perfect spot to enjoy not only the wonderful Ogunquit Beach, shops and restaurants, but especially the fireworks! Ogunquit puts on a great show and this compact hotel provided a front row seat. The staff is very friendly, the rooms immaculate and just the right size for 2-3 people. The balconies are perfect for your morning cup of coffee, or a cold beverage after a day on the beach, offering panoramic views of the ocean, beach, river or dunes. There's no elevator, so anyone with difficulty navigating a stairway should consider the climb. While not the newest or fanciest resort, the Norseman provides everything you need for a fabulous beach vacation at reasonable rates.

Room Tip: The best views of the ocean come at a higher price, but being between the beach and the river, there...

Thank you for staying at the Norseman Resort on Ogunquit Beach. We are happy that you enjoyed your stay and appreciate your compliments on our hotel. Although we do not have an elevator, we do have a substantial number of first floor rooms for guests unable to negotiate stairs. However, some guests who have difficulty with stairs cannot resist the views from our second or third floor rooms and often sacrifice the convenience of a first floor room for the incredible views offered on our upper levels. Thank you again for staying with us. We look forward to seeing you again.

As they say in real estate, location is everything and this is absolutely true for the Norseman. We were steps away from the beach and a very short walk to shops, great dining and nightlife. We didn't use our car for three days. The room is basic but it met our needs. We had a view of the tidal river which was beautiful and much quieter than the beach side. If you are looking for lots of amenities, this is not the place for you. If you are looking for a clean room with great access and views then this is the place.

Room Tip: Rooms with tidal river views are quieter and beautiful.

Thank you for staying at the Norseman Resort on Ogunquit Beach and writing about your accommodations on tripadvisor.

Our amenities include 2 onsite restaurants - one featuring spectacular casual beachfront dining and bar; tennis court, outdoor heated swimming pool, sauna, guest laundry facilities, refrigerators in every room and wifi. Parking is $25 per day at the beach and enjoying your vacation at the Norseman is a great way to park your car and forget about it for the duration of your stay.

We also have 2 weekly house rentals located on Beach Street which accommodate 12 -14 people. The choice is yours when you stay at the Norseman Properties on Beach Street in Ogunquit. Thank you again for sharing your thoughts and we hope to see you the next time you visit Ogunquit.

We stayed in the Norseman Resort in Ogunquit last weekend for
the first time. The reviews were very good and it is on the ocean.
You can lay on the beach, go for a walk along the beach, do some
shopping, go out for breakfast and supper and never need your car.
The resort is not new and there are no elevators but it is spotless
and everyone there is soooo helpful. Definitely going back.

Room Tip: Just ask when you call and they will suggest what you would be happy with.

We stayed here last September and love this location! When you walk off the beach and go back to your room, the sand goes with you! That's how close to the beach this place is! Our room was very clean and had a great view, we will stay here again!

My wife and I have been staying at the Norseman Resort for over 20 years. We stay about 2 times a year. The Sundowner is nice as it affords a direct view of the ocean. We however, prefer to stay on the top floor of the Dunes. It affords a nice side view of the ocean and also the river. The housecleaning staff is just wonderful and does an outstanding job. We have never found the staff to be anything but courteous and professional. As a matter of fact we stay at there sister resort in Wells in the winter as the Norseman is closed at that time. We haven't had any parking issues at the Norseman, but I'm sure it can be tight if your driving a big SUV or a gas eating tank. The Norseman is close to downtown Ogunquit and you can walk there and avoid parking issues. They keep a book of menus in the lobby so you can look at them and decide where to eat for supper. Just a nice place to relax. I don't care what reviews are posted. My wife and I will be continuing to stay here. We always do.

This hotel is original but clean..it is old rustic ocean view with charm...the tide most reaches their fron door. It is a piece of paradise. Old world charm in modern day. So family oriented. The town is charming and the water is breath taking!!!
