This place is very interesting. It is a stone's throw away from a lovely beach, via a small sand path through beach grass. You can hear the waves at night. We couldn't see the ocean from the ground floor...perhaps the second floor has a water view. The exterior is very clean and tidy. When we walked in the room, we... More

We traveled 4 hours and finally arrived in Pine Point only to open the door and get blasted with a smell of mold. We weren't expecting a fancy place but we were expecting a clean room for our family. I even asked when booking the room if there was any mold since my husband and son are highly allergic to... More

The closeness to the ocean was a positive as were the maid service and being away from the crowds near to the pier. The negatives were several. The sewage odor was from the marsh. But with no air conditioning we either had either close all the windows to eliminate the odor and sweat or open the windows and smell the... More

We found this motel by chance. It was well worth it. Set away from the crowds of Old Orchard Beach, this motel has been run for the past 30 some odd years by two brothers, and before them by their parents since 1952. While the furnishings may be a bit dated, everything is meticulously maintained and very clean. There is... More

First, I will say that the lady at the front desk was very helpful and friendly. She told me everything I needed to know about the hotel and my room and even brought me some extra towels. I never could get the hot water to work, which was a little frustrating. Since I was traveling with small kids, I was... More

This is a great place if you like the retro style, solid wood paneling (insulates from sound as well), old fashioned walk up 2nd floor, tile bath, etc. Here's what you get for the extra money: quiet-tude, ocean view - right next to the beach, not much else but what more do you need? Getting to Portland is easy, around... More

The Lighthouse Inn is a great way to get away from the rat-race of every day life. All rooms have an ocean view with direct access to the beach. Air conditioning is not needed because of the pleasant ocean breezes. The nearby area has numerous restaurants and shops. Portland ME is only 15 minutes away with more great restaurants and... More

Our family accidently yet luckily discovered the Lighthouse Inn in Scarborough! A step back in time is a good thing. The immaculate property/rooms and decor of yesteryear coupled with the lovely service was more like a family vacation of the past. We made great memories in our family stay and would go back next year without a hesitation. We were... More

This is an idyllic little spot. What a fantastic setting! We found the people at reception very friendly & helpful. Room slightly outdated but relatively clean (was a little staining on bedspread). We were on ground floor which was fine. No air-con not a problem, even in July. Having the beach so near is a definite plus. Breakfast was fine... More
