You can't beat watching an exquisite sunset after a long walk on the beach and falling asleep to the sounds of waves rolling into the shore! Greet morning with a gorgeous sunrise and prime beach real estate without the headache of parking. Although prices are higher you can't beat the location. Staff is VERY accommodating, friendly, kind and eager to make your stay wonderful. Highly recommend!

I expected for the price to have a nicer updated room. I realize you pay for the location, but not impressed with the soggy carpets on the porch. Feels like it is rotten wood underneath, I don't think I would stay here again for the price I paid

Situated perfectly on Ogunquit Beach, the ONLY hotel on Ogunquit Beach, one would think they would spend some of the money they charge nightly to update their rooms. Yes it is the perfect location, but Mother Nature provides the sunrises and sunsets and the Norseman, with its decks in need or repair, rooms in need of work, and new front desk in need of training, does little to compete. As the other reviews state, the showers are desperately small and you almost need to be a munchkin to fit properly. The decks are shared which was not told to me by a new associate when I booked. She said they were private. They are not. There are passersby at all times and there is no peace to be had on the decks overlooking the ocean.
The girl who checked us out asked us to visit Trip Advisor. So we are.
To sum it up, we think they could spend a little of the high prices of ocean view rooms on renovations and updates. The front desk seems a little harried and it is not even the high season yet. Sure the views are beautiful but the hotel needs some work.

This place is so adorable and tucked away right on the beach. We actually stayed in the room pictured on the main page and it was just absolutely beautiful. The deck is shared with 2 other rooms and looks out over the ocean. There is a pathway right underneath that leads to the public beach.

Everything is within walking distance.....all of the adorable restaurants and shops are close and accessible. We had a ton of fun exploring. It's nice to have a place within walking distance because there is no street parking for most of the restaurants and the small parking lots become full really quickly.

The room was charming. Not updated but clean and roomy. The only thing I could see being an issue for someone was the small shower. A larger person may have trouble showering. That saying, we had no problems.

Overall such a great experience! We will be coming back again!

Room Tip: Get a room with a balcony facing the beach!

We traveled to Ogunquit to see a play at the Ogunquit Play house. We stayed two nights at the Norseman and had a wonderful time. We had a great view from our room of the ocean. Even though it rained all day we enjoyed our stay. The room was very clean and we loved the free breakfast at Huckleberry's and we had a great dinner at Splash. Can't wait to go back to Ogunquit and stay at the Noreseman

We stayed here for a weekend in June and it was great. The motel is right on the beach and could not be more convenient. The room was a good size, had a lovely balcony overlooking the ocean, and even had a little bar fridge in the bathroom. My only comment is that you should be aware going in that the shower stall in the bathroom is small...so if you are a bigger person you may find it a tight squeeze. Also the rooms are a bit dated, but really immaculate. Otherwise it was the perfect spot for a weekend getaway.

Room Tip: Ocean view is a must!

We generally stay at a resort in York Beach, Maine, but wanted to try something different in Qgunquit, Maine, so glad we did! We were at the Norseman 5/30-6/1/14. The resort is older however very well maintained, the room was very clean , a little dated, but very roomy, with two queen beds, a beautiful view of the ocean with with a sliding door to lounge chairs so you can sit & relax enjoy the view and sun! the bathroom was very roomy with a little refrig, and a very nice shower, and again spotless! and what I really enjoyed was the lovely peace and quiet at night, with the perfect sound of the ocean. I would highly recommend this property, perfect for families, because the rooms are so spacious, also the people that work at the property are very nice and friendly, and they have two large binders one with all the restaurant menus , and other with all kinds of thing to do around the area, plus there is a beach store and a short walk to the lovely downtown, could not ask for anything more! We will be back

Room Tip: we were on the top floor, lovely view
