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. The moment we arrive we immediatly go right into a totally relaxed state of mind - it's so peaceful and tranquil and it's just... More

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

Always great to be back. Have been coming here for many years. Thankful to Laura for all of her years of welcoming our family and helping with our plans. The rooms where great as expected. Roseanna is great to see again and a huge asset to the marginal way house. Thank you for making our stay filled with memories.

This hotel is situated in a perfect spot. Drive in and never get in the car again. Overlooking the ocean, and a few steps to the beach and a beautiful walk on the "marginal way" and downtown. Places to dine are out your door as well as bars that stay open late. You can get a room with a small... More

We stayed here site unseen and it is exactly as pictured. While the rooms are dated, they are clean and the view from one of the rooms with an oceanfront view was awesome - watching the tide come in and out from the balcony and seeing the sunrise is worth the décor of the room. Great location - right on... More
