Perfect for that couples getaway and you cannot beat the view. Geoff is a pleasure to communicate with and the desk staff is friendly as well as professional. The grounds are immaculate and the staff let us know that Nancy is the magic behind the beautiful plantings. You cannot beat the view and convenient location. Thank you for the morning... More

Wonderful location, beautiful views and such a fantastic staff. The place is the best. I can not say enough about how fantastic the Riverside is. We left a book behind and the staff mailed it to us immediately. How do you get that kind of service anywhere else ? The local restaurants are also fantastic, but we stay every year... More

I came to Maine for the first time from the UK expecting sunshine but have experienced a non- typical week of sea mist and light rain interspersed with sunshine. Has it dampened by spirit? Not in the least! Looking out across Perkins Cove from my motel room in the mist is magical and walking the Marginal Way in the moist... More

5 star location with 1 star accommodations! I expected much more after reading the reviews. The plus side - We had a room facing the cove on the bottom level, which was great. We took advantage of the spacious front lawn and comfy Adirondack chairs. The outside of the property was well kept. The negatives - the room itself was... More

Thank you for reminding the T/A community about our amazing location, and about our fresh-baked goods which are baked at 2 - 5 am DAILY, by the top two bakeries in York County, the fabulous Congdon's, .(50 years, plus) ....and Ogunquit's own Bread & Roses. We could not be pleased more with their quality!!!! By the way, please read the... More

We recently returned from our third visit to Ogunquit and the Riverside Motel. The facility, as always, was spotless. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The continental breakfast had some very tasty, fresh choices. The location and views from this motel are second to none for the area.

Realtors say that location is everything, this place has a terrific location! Perkin's Cove is picturesque with boats, a charming pedestrian bridge, shops and restaurants. The Riverside Motel has the premier spot on Perkin's Cove. There are cuter, fancier motels/inns in Ogunquit, but none have this view! The proximity to lots of restaurants and the marginal way can't be beat.... More

On this last-minute getaway to Ogunquit, we stayed at the Riverside Motel tucked beautifully in Perkins Cove. Our room overlooked the Cove and, each morning we enjoyed muffins, fruit and coffee provided by the Riverside as we sat right at water's edge. We found this little BnB motel such a restful little spot....and, so convenient to the quaint little shopping... More

My wife and I have been frequent visitors to seaside Maine for numerous times. Having stayed at numerous hotels and motels we know a bit about what is good for us. Having overlooked Riverside Motel we often wondered what we could be missing out on. So, this past weekend we booked a few nights and were more than pleasantly surprised.... More
