The Riverside has become our favorite place to stay when in the Ogunquit area. It's not fancy, in fact rooms are very basic. One parking spot per room. Handicapped accessible rooms available. Nice continental breakfast available daily. Most rooms have balcony access, sections roped off so your area is "private", as in its not a walkway and the only access... More

Thank you Nacny for reviewing the Riverside for the T/A community. We have some children visiting each year. You probably don't see many because our small rooms are limited to two (2) persons (by Ogunquit Fire Code). Some of our guests take two adjacent rooms, with one parent in each room. (nice to have access to two bathrooms, also.) But,... More

This quaint motel is a throwback to the "old days" when you could drive right up to your door, unload, and take in the magnificent views within 5 minutes. Our room is always extra clean and includes a deck in front complete with chairs and a lounger to enjoy endless hours of watching the lobster boats chug in and out... More

This is an older motel but immaculately maintained with great amenities. The beds were comfortable and room was spotless. Overlooking Perkins Cove, each room has a nice balcony to enjoy watching the lobster fishermen heading out for the day and returning later with their catch. Great view of Perkins Cove restaurants and shops just across the quaint drawbridge. Restaurants, shopping... More

When I made my reservation the only room they had left was in building C. Building C needs some maintenance work. There was peeling paint in the hall way and around one of the windows. The room was a nice size and had a great view. There was no desk, only two drawers in the dresser, and very little counter... More

Thank you eaglebrian for the perfect timing, (for us, not for you). You have given me the chance to let our readers know that remodeling in the building C King rooms (the best views in southern Maine according to hundreds of opinions) was started last week. It should surprise you next year. Best regards, Geoff More

My husband and I stayed at the Riverside Motel in August. It was a perfect spot with a great view of Perkins Cove! From our balcony you can watch the fishing boats leave early in the morning and return in the evening. By going across the drawbridge you can visit cute shops and wonderful restaurants.

We have stayed here several times and the Riverside never disappoints. The location is amazing, unique, and convenient. As others have said, the grounds are beautiful and the whole place is well-maintained and very clean. The retro look of the rooms adds to the charm and uniqueness of the experience. There is a lot of drawer and closet space, the... More
