Please understand that The Riverside is only a motel. The rooms are small and very dated but the location is great. It sits on Perkins Cove and is accessible by a footbridge. The stores are fair at best but the restaurants are good and just a walk away. It also gives easy access to the Marginal Way. Be prepared to... More

We love the Riverside and always tell our friends and acquaintances about it. Our last visit (May 31 - June 5) was perfect even though the weather was not so great for the first 3 days. The grounds are gorgeous, our room perfect and kept so very clean, the view was spectacular from our room, and the staff, as always,... More

The rooms are always clean and the staff extremely pleasant and helpful. Late in the day I asked for more orange juice and the employee brought me a glass. We love sitting on the deck enjoying the covera and ocean views. Nancy's flowers are always so beautiful. There are a good number of restaurants within walking distance at Perkins Cove... More

The staff are outstanding and the owners are welcoming and attentive to guests needs. Sitting on the balcony with the view of the Cove and the ocean and the fishing boats is a bit of heaven. A short walk to Marginal Way and another breathtaking experience. The rooms are clean and inviting (altho the fridge did tend to freeze items... More

I have always called The Riverside "A Little Bit of Heaven" Geoff and Nancy have created something very special! There is nothing better, than sitting on the porch with friends, enjoying a glass of wine, soaking in the view, and trying to decide which great restaurant to go to across "The Footbridge". We're always looking forward to the next visit!

We were at Riverside last May and decided to come again and take family with us. The motel was clean and had an excellent view of Perkin's Cove. This is why we like this motel... Great location and a quick walk to the Marginal Way. I didn't get to have my jelly doughnut for breakfast because they were all gone... More

Best location in Ogunquit. The cove, the ocean, the footbridge, walk to everything. Spotlessly clean, quiet. Great staff. Don't forget the Marginal Way!! Great Donuts!! We come here at least 4 or 5 times each season. Each time we leave we can hardly wait to return.

Sadly we were only there for a night but can certainly recommend the motel. Very clean and comfortable with beautiful views. Just park the car and walk the Marginal Way or sit and absorb the scenery. Very well run motel. The only minus is that coffee is not provided in the rooms. Would certainly stay again. Well done to all... More

The rooms here are small, simple, and clean. Not luxury, but adequate. The grounds are groomed to perfection and the views are spectacular. You can lay in your bed and watch the boats in the cove just footsteps beyond your window. Or enjoy your patio, deck, or the adirondack chairs at the waterfront. Watch the boats come and go, the...

Coming off of 6 months of health issues, my wife and I were looking for a place to relax and enjoy the beauty of Maine. Riverside Motel presented us with manicured grounds, a clean and very comfortable room and scenery that was breath taking. Add to that the most friendly motel staff we have ever experienced and an owner, Geoff,... More

Thank you yajman for reviewing the Riverside for Trip Advisor, and for your kind comments. Nancy and the staff, and our guests who frequent the Riverside are mostly responsible for our unique ambiance. It is truly a very rare situation we have on the New England coast, which is typically crowded and hectic in season. Part of that reason is... More
