Despite the cold temps our stay was, as usual, very pleasant. We have visited the Riverside almost annually for the past 35 years. Although it was early for many blooms, the grounds were impeccable. The rooms very clean, the staff friendly and the atmosphere relaxing. Great continental breakfast, and the Congdon donuts welcome as usual.

This property has a beautiful view, friendly and helpful staff!! Continental breakfast that can be enjoyed indoors, or out on the deck with a view of the Perkin's Cove. The property is very clean, and the many flowers and grounds were lovely. It is wonderful to be able to walk to everywhere, using the footbridge spanning the Cove. The Marginal... More

We are return guests; can't count times. The setting is perfect. You are right on Perkins Cove. The rooms have a perfect view of the cove. The footbridge is next to the property. You are just steps away from great food, the shops and The Marginal Way. The staff takes great care of its guests. We will return. Again and... More

Anthony was on duty when we checked into Riverside....which hadn't officially opened yet.We have stayed here several times before and nothing changes; it is always good. My husband bought a boat several years ago which was - at that time - moored in the Cove. This is always the proverbial trip down memory lane for us. The breakfast was limited... More

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

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.
