Reviewed 5 July 2013

This hotel has great accommodations to fit any size or budget.
The hotel is friendly and very clean and updated.
We did not eat at the restaurant, but it was busy all day and night.
It is away from the noise of the main street area but extremely close to the shopping and restaurants in York Beach and to Short Sands beach.
We would definitely return for another stay!

I visited The Union Bluff as a girls vacation with my aunt, mom, and grandma. My family is a bit picky but was blow away by the beauty and service at this hotel. Our bedroom had a great view of the ocean and we loved listening to the waves at night. The bar and restaurant were also fabulous. I can not say enough great things! We will most definitely be back to stay!!!!

Room Tip: main hotel with a corner ocean view!

This is our second stay at the Union Bluff, our first stay was in early October when we stayed two nights to attend a wedding held at this location. During that stay we slept in the original building and were not very impressed. This time we stayed at the Meeting House, which is a set of rooms located two buildings away from the main hotel and is above the function rooms. We were able to book this room midweek during the last week of June.....just before the summer season begins.

We were so impressed with the facility. We stayed in a room with access to a private deck with ocean view. The room was spacious and included king size bed, fireplace, lounge chairs, desk and spacious bathroom. Our room was clean and well kept by housekeeping during our stay.

The location of this hotel couldn't be better. Situated across the street from Short Sands in York, guests have immediate access to the beach and nearby restaurants and shops. The hotel also has a restaurant and bar. We did not get a chance to eat at the restaurant, but did spend a couple of nights at the bar. The bar isn't that big, but it is a fun time. The food is average to above average fare.

We have now stayed in the main hotel and the meeting house. We have not stayed at the annex which is located between the meeting house and the main hotel......if you are looking to stay at this facility I highly suggest you shoot for the meeting house rooms.

Room Tip: Book a room in the Meeting House if you can!

My wife and I were looking for an "off the beaten path" beach vacation for our 2 year old and ourselves. We found just that in York Beach (short sands...not long. big difference) Maine. The town itself offers enough to make the trip comfortable. It provides plenty of mom and pop restaurants, shops and even a small amusement park. The bread and butter of the town is the beach though. Absolutly beautiful sand and views. The water is always a little chilly though. Staying at the Union Bluff puts you right next to the beach. It is a very nice, historic hotel. The one inconvienience of the town is that when dinner comes, good luck getting a seat. We ate almost every night at the union bluff Restaurant which is very good.

Each year my mother, my aunt, my cousin and I go for 3 nights to the Maine coast. Last July (2012) we stayed at the Union Bluff Hotel and couldn't have been happier about it. It was gorgeous - the rooms (Annex rooms, which had recently been updated), the view, the interior, the restaurant, the beach - all beautiful. We wanted to go back this coming July but it's booked and has been since the fall/winter time. Book early for summer weekends! Wish we were going back :)

A friend and I make an annual December trek to York Beach in Maine and we always stay at the Union Bluff. Now, granted this is well "after season" and not a lot of other facilities are open but we would probably stay at the Union Bluff anyway. This hotel has lower off season rates (still not a HUGE bargain) but every little bit helps. The rooms are neat,clean, nicely furnished and most have some sort of ocean view. The in-house restaurant is a bit pricey but the food is very good. I have never visited the Pub but it seems always to be busy. I also know that during off season the Pub is frequented by locals and that is generally a good sign. Across the street is what is called "short sands" beach and it is a nice little stroll from one end to the other. Why December? In December there are one or two weekends when the general area (Wells, Ogunquit and York) have an event centered in Ogunquit called Christmas By the Sea. This weekend event includes caroling, sales at local shops, activities for kids, bonfire - tree lighting, etc. Great fun!! If I had one improvement I could make at the Union Bluff it would be in the lack of friendliness toward guests. There are generally two or more people at the front desk and they really seem to be more interested in each other's chit chat or reading the paper than in guests.

Room Tip: Be sure to ask what sort of view you will have in a given room as not all rooms look directly at the...

My husband & I have had the pleasure of staying at this lovely hotel for 6 times now, and have never been disappointed. The staff is always very friendly & accommodating. We always enjoy dinner @ the Pub... good food and there are several TV's set for different sporting events . Breakfast @ the Union Bluff Grill is very good (great omelets) Nice gift shops just down the street , and access to Short Sands Beach and park is right across the street from the hotel.
