This was my first time visiting the Sea Cliff and I stayed at the end of November. What a place! The staff was extremely friendly and professional, especially the young guy, Alex. I was a walk-in without a previous reservation and he took the time to ask about my preferences, as well as whether I wanted a room or suite... More

Let me start by saying I've been staying at the Sea Cliff House on and off for over 20 years and never had a problem. This happened labor day week and I'm just writing now after seeing other reviews with similar issues with the "staff" although I have a feeling we're all talking about the same person. The other people... More

Everyone accidentally locks himself out from time to time, whether it is at your own residence, within your vehicle, or at some type of lodging and many of us misdial telephone numbers on occasion. Neither of these actions are punishable offenses, as we all make mistakes and things like this happen. We certainly understand that and we have no reason... More

This trip was a last minute decision and the Sea Cliff House had vacancies to accommodate us. We stayed in #8 facing the beach on New Years Day for one night. We would have stayed 2 but it was a bit cold and a storm was brewing back home. The room was spotless, well appointed with granite countertops and very... More

I was asked if I wanted a sea view which I paid the extra money for and got a room that was facing a building but if I went out on the deck and looked to the side I could see the ocean or at least a sliver. That was not worth the extra money. 89 dollars for an off... More

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and while we certainly respect everyone’s right to their own personal and subjective opinion, we would like to assure all prospective customers that the physical and aesthetic condition of the Sea Cliff House Motel is not old, outdated, dirty, or anything remotely substandard. To the contrary, we have put forth tireless years... More

We just stayed at the Seacliff for the second time and LOVED it!! We are so tired of the snooty, pretentious commercial hotels that treat you like a credit card number with their hands out constantly waiting for tips to do their jobs. It is so refreshing to go to this charming beach house motel. The ocean is right in... More

at the look of the pictures you see that it is clean, and it is, but you get a 19 inch TV and set high up on the wall, the Jacuzzi tub was the size of a cheap trailers tub & the price was $129 but it wasn't up to par. we're not snobs nor rich but believe that if... More

The Sea Cliff House Motel is a 30-year, family owned and operated establishment and we are proud to cater to a family oriented clientele base. Over the years, the fundamental differences between "hotels" and "motels" have evolved. While we don't offer meals or conference rooms like hotels, we aren't the typical motel either. What sets the Sea Cliff House apart... More

Worst service I've ever experienced. Horrible communication. DO NOT STAY HERE. Please continue reading for an explanation. I booked in advance for one night of a long weekend visit to Maine from New York. The drive to the Sea Cliff House was over 6 hours, and conditions were terrible - stormy weather and slick roads - causing us to driver... More

The Sea Cliff House Motel never wants to turn away a valued guest. However, the front office is open from 9:00 AM (EST) to 9:00 PM (EST) daily and has an established check-in time of 3:00 PM (EST) and a check-out time of 11:00 AM (EST). Unfortunately, if the guest chooses not to contact the front office directly with advanced... More

My husband and I stayed here one night on our way north. Found it at the last minute by searching Google for a place on the beach. Reasonable price ($106 including tax) for room #7, second floor, facing the ocean. Great location right on the beach, building and grounds in very good condition, though room & bathroom were very "tired".... More

We were pleasantly surprised in some ways about the Sea Cliff. The rooms were clean, although well used. The room was spacious and had a kitchenette. The location on the beach was great. The desk clerk was not helpful. When I asked for a small packet of coffee for the morning she made a big deal out of whether she... More

It was an absolutely beautiful September weekend in Maine. We stayed in a kitchenette this visit and loved it. The facility is clean and the staff is very friendly and helpful. It is always nice relaxing in the hot tub after spending the day on the beach. We are already looking forward to our next visit to Sea Cliff House... More
