We just got back from this spot and loved it. Location is superb (both to downtown and the big beach), accommodations were great, never heard neighbors, breakfast was good and the grounds were well maintained. Our 6 and 9 yr old loved the pool and the ocean view outdoor patio off our room. We stayed in 133 and 130, both... More

We usually stay in the main inn. Location is great. Children under 6 years are not allowed during peak season, so there are very few families . It is quiet and peaceful. Wifi is an issue. We spoke to the front staff- nick being the owners son. They are " supposed" to upgrade the system. We were sorry to hear... More

We just spent a last minute, 2 night stay at the Terrace. Our actual vacation there will be later this month. After 11 years we still come back - our 6 nights just for us to relax, especially after a week with 4 children and spouses and 8 grandchildren. Our only complaint is the inadequate wifi, Not sure if it... More

We stayed in the cottage and it couldn't have been a nicer place. The staff was friendly and helpful, the view of the ocean was incredible and the breakfast was delicious. It was so relaxing with a wonderful atmosphere. We plan to return soon!

Everything was wonderful- the room, the people, the weather and the view. What a view! Everything is a short walk away- beach, food, shopping, marginal way. We parked the car upon arrival and didn't get in it again until it was time to go home. What more could you ask for on a long weekend away from home.

The location here is perfect, right in town and right on the ocean! The view is beautiful and the staff was amazing! The staff was full of suggestions and went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed! Everyone was very friendly and the room was very clean! I am very picky and only write reviews...

My friends and I find Terrace to be the perfect spot for our annual girls' weekend in Ogunquit! Great location, beautiful view, and the two-level rooms are perfect for a group of 4. The hotel is older but that just adds charm, which I love! I'm genuinely surprised it's not ranked higher here on TA. You can't beat the value... More

We stayed here in September for a few days. Having never been to Maine, I spent lots of time reading over Tripadvisor reviews for Ogunquit and neighboring seashore motels and finally I selected Terrace by the Sea because of it's location even though I thought it might be an older establishment. I was so pleased with everything. The location definitely... More
