We chose to stay here based on its proximity to Perkins Cove as we knew parking around Ogunquit can be challenging. I have to say our expectations were a bit low considering we had to mail in a check for our reservation as they didn't take credit cards over the phone or on the website. What a wonderful place it...

Our entire staff appreciates you mentioning that. In the simplest analysis, that is our number one goal at the Riverside Motel, of course. When people are traveling from home on their... More

What a lovely surprise. The rooms are spacious and especially clean. Perfect place to relax. The view was postcard beautiful. Incredible proximity to shops and restaurants at Perkins Cove. Much more reasonably priced and comfortable than a resort that we stayed at down the road a few months prior. Will absolutely plan to visit again.

This is the third year we have stayed at the Riverside in October and we are never disappointed. The staff are so friendly and the rooms are impeccably clean. You can find more expensive hotels in Ogunquit but the view, amenities and "at home" feeling can't be matched. The location is perfect...walking on the Marginal Way each day was the... More

We stayed here for one night in September on our way to Acadia NP from PA. We arrived around 2PM which was early, but our room was ready, and we were quickly checked in. Our room was a balcony level in Building A. The view was amazing, but it was accompanied by a clean and comfortable room. We got up... More

Location, location, location. The view is amazing. First of the cove where you can sit on your balcony and watch the lobster boats come and go. Second the ocean with waves crashing on the shore. The rooms are immaculate. No carpeting which makes them seem much cleaner. Be sure to get a room with a balcony for the best view.... More

Thank you Mary_MGeorgiaVT for reviewing us for the T/A community. Our entire staff appreciates you mentioning how clean our property is. One half of our balcony rooms have carpeting (which some people prefer), and the other half has the laminate wood flooring. If booking their vacation early enough, our guests can choose their preferred flooring. Although some dates are sold... More

This motel has a great location, just a short walk over the bridge to Perkins Cove where you can eat, shop and take a lobster tour.

Happy to be back @ Riverside again this yr. Just as nice, clean, comfortable as always. A great location w/ Perkins Cove @ property edge. Love sitting on balcony, watching the fishing boats come in w/ their catch, the numerous scooners, private boats & charters. Never get tired of it. Ocean view also. Such a convenient location.

The Riverside motel has a great location--right across the footbridge from Perkins Cove. It is very clean, with nice wood floors rather than filthy carpets. It is not handicapped accessible. If you are in a wheel chair, you can not get to the office/breakfast area. They also do not have a designated smoking area.

My boyfriend and I fell in love with the area. The Riverside Motel was within walking distance (15-20 minutes) of the center of town. Lovely views of the Harbor and boats. The room was clean and a nice size for two people. Although the bathroom was VERY small. It would have been challenging to navigate if we had stayed more... More
