I've stayed at the Monkey for years. The owners are very friendly and usually book your room themselves. I've stayed in all of the houses, and the rooms have been clean and comfortable. There is a little bit of a mothball smell though, which I don't mind. Sometimes if you pay cash, the rooms are even cheaper. You cannot beat... More

I Met my husband here. This has become a very special place for us since this is where we met!!! Great location! You can easily work into town . You can get on the tram and go anywhere! The summer playhouse has wonderful shows and the restaurants have the best lobster.

My friend and I have been staying at the Yellow Monkey for about 20 yrs. What brought us there first was that they allowed pets in rooms with private entrances and we travel with two small dogs. What kept us going back were the owner's, Victor and Peter, their friendliness and willingness to be accommodating, the staff we met and... More

This place really hasn't changed much in many years...and that would be a good thing! We love this place. And the best part is the friendliness of the staff and other guests...especially Peter! It really helped make our vacation special. Can't wait to go back.

We stayed in room 'E1', a beautiful , newly re modeled, large suite with full kitchen and private patio. Great price! Quiet location but with access to common areas where friendly people meet and party together between events downtown. Short walk to shopping, restaurants, dance and comedy bars. The best Beach a short walk away. Heated Jacuzzi for guests is... More

This was a fine guest house. I wish that all could be as accommodating as this guest house was. We were there in early July...the weather in Ogunquit was awful. It rained--down-poured, and our lovely hotel room was even more of a respite because of the weather. We walked up a set of stone stairs to a suite with a... More

Have stayed at the Yellow Monkey many times over the years, some rooms are better than others, but overall no complaints. Just stayed in Room L, gorgeous room, well appointed, clean and comfortable, also enjoyed the period furniture in the room which were of excellent quality. Thanks to the owner, Peter, for offering a great stay at fair prices.

Maybe there have been a lot of changes for the better, but the Yellow Monkey where I stayed two delightful nights recently bears no resemblance to what is described in the critical reviews here. My room was small, but perfectly adequate. Everything was totally clean and in working order. The furniture is B&B style - not modern, but charming in... More

Most guests are gay men, though a few lesbians and straight parties receive a cordial welcome. Peter, the owner-operator, has stocked the 5 adjacent houses--their bedrooms and their lobbies--with antiques that make a B&B feel much like home.. Most of the rooms have small refrigerators, TV, AC, and a compact, well-designed private bath. The included breakfast is a serve-yourself choice... More

I've never written a hotel review before, but I feel I should about this place. I stayed here a few years ago in July (cannot choose a previous year below for some reason) and had high hopes. My room smelled of mildew and it turns out (most) of the culprit was the air conditioner (the filter looked like it hadn't... More
