We have been coming to the Marginal Way House for almost 20 years, and we look forward to next 20! Our kids have grown up there, and we have made some lifelong friends. We can't say enough about the location, the view, and the wonderful staff. We heard that new owners had taken over this year, and while some things... More

We enjoyed ourselves so much we asked if we could keep the room one more night.. It was available, so we paid the extra night. My wife is... More

For the decade and a half that I have worked at the Marginal Way House, our cancellation policy has always remained the same. 14 days notice in order to receive a refund of deposit less a minimal cancellation fee. Once a guest is inside the 14 day period, if a cancellation is received, the deposit is forfeited unless the room... More

My wife and I were planning a romantic trip to Maine for our thirtieth anniversary. Unfortunately my Step-Dad died; we called and cancelled our reservation TEN DAYS before our arrival date. We were refused a refund of our deposit because they had only rented our room for four of the five days we had reserved. Seriously I can't believe the... More

We have been staying at the MWH for six years. We love it there and will be returning next year. Grounds are beautiful, the staff is awesome, and the accomodations are what we love. Not fancy but most comfortable.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for one night alone then my parents came the next day. I was very impressed! This Motel does not require a 2 night min stay and for the price you can't beat the location. It is right off Shore Road which has everything. One of my favorite features of the Motel was the beautiful... More

The Marginal Way House has undergone several changes this past year, not the least of which is new ownership. At first glance, not much is different, except for some nice new flower beds, thanks to the hiring of a gardener who is both energetic and nurturing. But many more changes are on their way, including gradual renovations of most, if... More

My husband and I have been staying at The Marginal Way House for over five years and we love it. The view of the ocean from the beautifully maintained and sweeping lawn simply cannot be beat.

We come back to the Marginal Way House every summer...usually twice, but this year we'll be returning four times! It is such a wonderful getaway. The grounds are beautiful, rooms well appointed and the VIEW can't be beat! And the location of the Marginal Way House is perfect...you can walk everywhere. We did notice that it seemed to be under... More

I have stayed in Ogunquit many times, but this year was tghe first time we stayed at the Marginal Way House. It was nice and clean, a normal hotel, but the view was unbeatable. The ladies that worked there were very nice and friendly too. The footpath entrance to Marginal way, which brings you to Perkins Cove, is very close.... More

We have been coming here for years. Rooms are very clean, management is excellent and very accommodating especially Laura. The renovations and updates to some of the motel units are wonderful, new windows, furniture, heat/air systems and fabulous showers. Everything is within walking distance. Views are awesome. We visit each year with our extended family -children, grandchildren and their friends.... More
