The hotel was as advertised in terms of relative closeness to the beach. As one knows a sandy beach in Maine is often hard to find. Seaside has just such a beach. It was lovely to take a walk despite the cool temps. The breakfast in the morning was also very nice and fresh. The down side....the beds were hard... More

We are glad you enjoyed your time on the beach. No matter what the temperature is if the sun is shining a walk on the beach is always pleasant. I am sorry you did not like our mattresses or pillows. Next time please let us know. We could have moved you to a room with a softer mattress if that... More

I love New England and everything that exemplifies quintessential "seaside" vacations. At less than a mile from downtown makes the inn's location perfect. The rooms are sparkling clean and very spacious. The staff was amazingly friendly and welcoming. Mornings in the breakfast room was delightful and the muffins were wonderfully homemade, warm and plentiful. Fresh fruit, Irish oatmeal and many... More

I was at the seaside inn on september 26th,2014 for 3 nights. As owner of a travel agency on the south shore of montreal, I would just like to mention how much I enjoyed this inn. Although, not 5 star, rooms are extremely clean and well kept as well as the inn itself. The breakfast in the boathouse is also... More

We spent two nights at the Seaside Inn and it was delightful! Our room looked out on the flower garden near the entrance which I found extremely pleasant. The room was charmingly decorated as was the entire inn. We went upstairs and sat on the deck near the hot tub and looked out at the beach. The location of the... More

Spent six nights recently in a 2nd floor "premier" room with my husband and two young adult daughters. We paid premium rates because I wanted to see the ocean from my room and go to sleep to the sounds of the sea. The Seaside did not disappoint! The room was a good size, very clean and comfortable and very quiet.... More

Love the Seaside! Have stayed here for 3 years. Can't beat the location...the beach is a 30 second walk across the grass. The rooms are big and clean and there is a deck with a hot tub and a fabulous view of the water. Best thing about the Seaside though, is the muffins! Homemade every morning and left out to... More

Fortunate to get a one night here on the 2nd floor over looking the ocean. Place is small, rooms are very clean, refrigerator in room, 2 queen beds, small balcony to sit out and see the ocean. Also, a nice jacuzzi on the top deck to relax oceanside. Neil at the desk was very nice, gave good tips on places... More

We loved staying here on our honeymoon. Rooms were clean, staff was very friendly and helpful and the whole Inn is very charming. Breakfast was included and delicious and the whole place had a bit of a bed and breakfast feel. The beach is beautiful and sandy. Highly Recommend.
