I have been coming here since around 1999 when the Staples family owned it and with the new owner Geoff these last seven years the motel continues to be the best. It is well-run, the staff is helpful and smiling all the time, the rooms are perfect and what can you say about that front porch. Every morning you see... More

This is one of the very few places that we called in the area that offered a one night stay. The property is immaculately kept. The room was sooo clean and inviting. The staff were extremely nice and helpful. No view from any room in the hotel is a bad view. And being able to walk to Perkins Cove, after... More

Thank you Heather K for sharing your visit with the T/A community. Our entire staff appreciates your kind comments. We have no prescribed minimum number of nights at the Riverside Motel, and that is often how some guests find us for the first time. Many travelers break up their journey to or from Acadia National Park by visiting us and... More

Beautifully kept property right on Perkins Cove. Within walking distance of shops, restaurants and Marginal Way. This was our first visit to Ogonquit and would definitely return to Riverside Motel. Nice continental breakfast with cereal, juice, yogurt, and pastries. The Blueberry Jelly doughnuts are to die for!

We stayed for 5 days to celebrate my b'day and it was one of the best vacations ever for us. We had a lovely room kept clean by a very attentive, hardworking staff. We sat on the lawn watched the lobster boats come in, walked over the bridge to shops, first rate restaurants, and to top it off walked the... More

My wife just returned from our midweek stay at the Riverside. We have been guests here on several different occasions over the years, and have never been disappointed. As othershere have commented, a very relaxing place to unwind! Nice continental breakfast as well

First rate, pleasant, courteous and attentive staff. Beautiful, perfectly maintained grounds and rooms. Great views of Perkins Cove and the sailboats and fishing boats coming in and out quietly. Just over the footbridge from the Perkins Cove restaurants and shops and The Marginal Way but still enjoyably quiet. Very enjoyable continental breakfast.

Thank you c e for reviewing the Riverside for the T/A readers. We are very pleased when our efforts are appreciated so much. So many of our guests love the quiet on this side of the cove, as they watch the activity. Or you can be in the middle of shopping, touring, and dining on the other side, with just... More

This fabulous location offered a beautiful room overlooking the cove. Relaxing on the lawn in Adirondack chairs as the lobstermen brought in and unloaded their catch for the day. The convenience of the location is only second to the stunning views. We park our car on arrival and don't get back in it until departure. The staff is cheerful, friendly,... More

Very nice room with balcony to watch the Cove activities. Easy walk over the walking/draw bridge to restaurants and shops in the Cove. Also access to 1 mile walk along the ocean from Perkins Cove to town of Oguinquit.

We absolutely loved this motel. The location was great. A small low key motel that has a beautiful view of the harbor, is easy to get to from the highway, set off from the crowds, yet within a 2 minute walk you are in the heart of Perkins Cove. For anyone not familiar with Perkins Cove, it is a beautiful... More
