We've stayed here many times. The location is fantastic, you walk over a small bridge that is over the cove and you are in Perkins Cove where there are some nice restaurants and also shopping. The owners are wonderful. The motel is quiet, extremely clean, breakfast great and reasonable. We like it as it is away from the hustle and... More

Thank you MMCC for reviewing us for Trip Advisor. We agree with your balcony description, if you sit there for 30 minutes, a feeling of serenity will surpass anything that one can find in most full service spas. This may explain why many have been returning to the Riverside Motel for generations. Best wishes, Nancy, Geoff, and staff More

Besides the most amazing location, the staff, people staying at hotel and every other aspect of this place has always been top notch. We are now in our 40s and its a place for young and old. Rooms super clean, breakfast wonderful... More

than the Riverside Motel overlooking beautiful Perkins Cove in Ogunquit, ME. My youngest daughter calls it her "Happy Place". My family enjoyed another perfect weekend. Although the weather could have been better, we were still able to enjoy the festivities and decorations on the last weekend before Halloween. Geoff and his staff always make us feel welcomed and appreciated. Needless... More

Well, I got my wish this October and only wish that I could have stayed longer. Located in Perkins Cove, it is situated perfectly with a view of the... More

We stayed at the Riverside Motel twice this past season. The location is perfect for relaxing and enjoying the views of a busy cove and beautiful ocean. A quick walk to shops, restaurants and the marginal way add to the wonderful experience. The breakfast offering is very good - the doughnuts are fabulous. The rooms and grounds are meticulous. We...

Riverside Motel is beyond clean, beautiful, friendly and in the most beautiful setting ever. I highly recommend a stay here during any time of year. We have traveled both in May and October and either time was absolutely magnificent. The view and surrounding town are picturesque and quaint. Absolutely LOVED our time here..
