Spouse and I stayed here recently on our trip along the Maine coast. It has a great location and you can easily walk to everything in Ogunquit. While it does not have direct access to Marginal Way, it's only a short walk away. We had a very large and sunny room, with a partial water view, albeit on the third... More

The Marginal Way House (MWH) proved to be a good location to enjoy and explore Ogunquit. There was no need to drive anywhere once we parked on site. We stayed 2 nights, walking the Marginal Way several times, sampling several nearby restaurants, and taking a few delightful pictures of the area. Our room was located on the third floor (no... More

Location of property is very nice as it is right on the water with great views. Housekeeping was a disappointment. We stayed 2 days and the maid did not leave shampoo for the 2nd day. She also left our dirty glasses (the ones provided by hotel)

Last year, we walked all over Ogunquit looking for the best place to stay for this year. There was no question that the Marginal Way House was our top choice. We felt very lucky to get a room in the Dockside Motel. I called many times last September and booked it as soon as they knew it would be available.... More

Been coming here for four years now and a total of 45 to Ogunquit. It's a five star location with 2 star services. We are hoping that the new owners will upgrade the facility. I always tip the chambermaids generously. Not so this year ! I left half the amount as the floors were never vacuumed and the mirrors not... More

The Marginal Way House is a great place to stay, near all activities and on the trolley line! We stayed in the main house, upstairs, with a breathtaking view of the ocean. The house is dated, but immaculately clean. Our bathroom door didn't shut tight, but it was just my husband and I, so that wasn't a huge problem. The... More

I enjoy travel planning as much as my actual planning. In thoroughly investigating Ogunquit, as it was a new destination for me, I poured over the many hotel options. Turns out my research paid off, The MWH is a very nice property and the location is second to none in OGT. My impression improved as my travel plans needed serious... More

My wife loves Ogunquit. I'm a fan and being from the North Shore of MA, it's got a small town Cape feel without the hassle of getting to the Cape. Unfortunately most places in Ogunquit now have the rates, minimum night stay requirements, and mediocre customer service you run into down there. This hotel is not only situated in the... More

My husband and I have been staying at the Marginal Way house for 40 years. It is our summer vacation spot. The location is perfect-walking distance to beach, town, Perkins cove and many restaurants and shops. We have mostly stayed in the main house but there are several types of accommodation's on the property. The hotel was recently sold and... More

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
