My husband and I have stayed at the Union Bluff for 5+ years. We love the view and the saff is consistently friendly and helpful. It is pricey and each year we have stayed here, the rates have increased. As we approach retirement, we wil be priced out of our favorite hotel. I give it 4 stars because of the... More

I love this hotel. I have stayed for vacations with my family, with my friends and most recently I attended a wedding here. The rooms are clean, the staff is helpful and nice and you just can't beat the location, location, location! Literally steps to the wonderful Short Sands beach. The food is great - both in the fine dining... More

The location is breathtaking. I prefer it in dead of winter, where there is NO ONE, however, it's gorgeous all year round. Ocean right outside your window, lovely accommodations, beach town to your right, ocean to left....some rooms with balconies, others with hot tubs. Great pub......and restaurant. Staff is friendly, accommodating and knowledgeable. Regardless of how busy they are, everyone... More

We were in town attending a wedding. Very clean hotel with lovely big rooms and all the amenities. We chose not to have an ocean view because you can step out the front door and there is the ocean. Walking distance to shops and short sands beach, and restaurants. Close to Kittery and Freeport Outlets.

Our family, consisting of 3 families traveled to the Union Bluff for a quick 3 day, 2 night vacation together. We were given 3 connecting rooms in the motel section without even asking and that worked out great. The motel portion looks recently renovated and was comfortable & clean. We had a king size bed and our adult children &... More

We needed a 2 day mental health holiday in May before the season begins to rest, relax and recuperate. Union Bluff served that purposed. Fine hotel with 2 restaurants inside the hotel. Nothing much outside was open.

I went on a last minute girls birthday trip for 1 night. We stayed in an ocean front room on the 2nd floor of the motel building. The room had 2 double beds. It was immaculate. The furniture was very appropriate for an oceanfront room. There was a refrigerator and coffee maker in the cabinet under the television. There were... More

Wonderful oceanside brunch spot during October month, overlooking Short Sands Beach, the splashing waves and a nice sandy beach. Very reasonably priced for the location and historical character of the hotel. Make reservations if you don't want to wait for a table, but there are bluffside chairs to sit in while waiting. Seated inside on the small enclosed, windowed porch... More

The Easter Buffet at the beautiful Meeting House function room at Union Bluff was about the best Brunch/Buffet ever!!! Reservations were taken so that at no time were there any kind of lines at the various food stations. The Prime Rib (cut to order) at the Carving Station was about the best Prime Rib I have ever eaten...juicy, flavorful, fork... More

The Union Bluff Hotel represents the elegance of Old Maine, beautiful location, breathtaking ocean views, spacious comfortable rooms and a helpful friendly staff. The location begs you to walk along the beach of short sands. This is a great hotel for a quiet and relaxing off season getaway.
