The location was perfect, and the staff was great. My only complaint would be the uncomfortable beds.

the room was nothing fancy, but clean and comfortable. The best thing is that parking is included and you don't have to pay for beach parking. It was great having a pool, most of all. the location is easy for walking to the shops and a few places to eat

Room small but beds very comfortable and clean. Right on trolly stop top Perkins cove Ogunquit and beyond. Beach across from motel small but larger beach trolley ride away . Shopping food every where. Pool cool.

Heater hadn't been turned on for the year and smelled bad, beds squeaked loudly, and room was small. But the staff were nice and it was adequate for the price.

Great staff and pool. Across from beach. Close to everything. Room is small and parking is tight.
