We had a great stay at the Terrace in December. It helped that the weather was wonderful. We stayed in the old house and had a great room. Staff couldn't have been nicer to us. The view from the front porch simply can't be beat.

I spent 3 nights at this lovely hotel. It had the feel of a bed and breakfast with the convenience of being literally steps from restaurants, shops and the beach! It was convenient, clean and spacious. We had an assigned parking space right outside our door. It included a conteniental breakfast in another building that was lovely. Their grounds are... More

I recently spent 3 days, two nights with friends at this hotel. I have stayed there before and never had a billing problem. This time, however, was a different story. We had trouble from the start putting down a deposit (one night's cost was not allowed) so we did a partial payment. Upon checking in, we were told you pay... More

Manager Response: Thank you for your feedback regarding this matter. Two people made a reservation taking advantage of our convenience package, with a nice restaurant in the area and wanted to pay their even share and we did make an mistake in the math with this. However, the total amount was correct. We have room rates and also package rates... More

Booked here on the spur of the moment and could not be happier. It is late September and the weather was spectacular. We had a king suite. Room had a great view of the ocean. Room was very clean. All the staff were nice. Breakfast only OK. Will be back.

We just love this place, it's our escape for a weekend away whenever we can. Of course I believe everyone's favorite area is THE LAWN area. You can look out over the ocean while sitting or lying out on chaise lounge chairs. Sooooo peaceful. Front desk is quick and easy, walking distance to center of town, very clean rooms, such... More

We just returned from our second visit to Terrace by the Sea and it did not disappoint. You can't find a better location. It is an easy walk to the beach, the shops, the restaurants, and Marginal Way. The rooms are very clean and the staff friendly. We stayed in a waterfront room in the front motel, the view was...

This our first visit to Terrace By The Sea, although we go to Ogunquit every year. We loved this place. Extremely clean, large rooms, perfect location. Breakfast is a simple continental, but attended to and nicely done. The attention to details here show even in the flowers... Someone was out at sunrise each day drying off the chairs outside so...

This hotel is almost the closest place to the beach. It has larger guest-rooms than normal, however the furniture is just average. The front porch is a very pleasant place to have breakfast, with the best view in town. Continental breakfast is average; it would be nice to have a little more variety. It is a very friendly place, in... More

My husband and I have been going up for long weekends twice a year for the last 4 years. For us it's all about proximity to the beach and Terrace by the Sea has it. Easy walk to the beach, restaurants and shopping. Really no need to get in the car at all.
