We paid in excess of $260 a night for a room and were given a room in an annex building with tired motel like rooms and a window air conditioner in the bathroom. The room was small and very noisy. The beach in front of the hotel was crowded and the area surrounding the hotel was loaded with bars and... More

We visited Union Bluff Hotel on a whim with a 3 year old and 2 month old. This hotel was a best case scenario for us. It is on the beach, no lugging our things back and forth between hotel and beach. I could literally sit on the hotels grassy lawn area which runs into the sand, and watch my... More

My wife and I stayed here for 5 days this August. They do a nice job. Clean, well run, great pub and restaurant! The outstanding feature is the location. Literally on the beach and well within walking distance on anything you could want for meals or entertainment. a throwback to the 60's-70's with no big brands or franchises. All Mom... More

Once again, my family was treated to a very nice dinner in their pub. Great food, great service, reasonably priced. Let's not forget the great view of short sands beach as well. You can watch the ocean from your table in a very relaxing environment. We visit every year and are never disappointed!

The Union Bluff has the best view on Short Sands in York Beach Maine! The hotel accommodations are excellent and they have inside and outside dining along with a spectacular function hall for special events! You won't be disappointed! And they are open year round!

You won't want to miss a visit to the Union Bluff Pub if you are in York Beach. It's just a short walk from Short Sands beach and a welcome break from the sun. We four sat at the bar where the bartender was friendly and makes a good drink. We eventually were joined by two more and moved to... More

This is the third time that we've had the pleasure of staying at the Union Buff Hotel in Short Sands, York Beach, Maine, this time for 10 glorious, sunny days of perfect weather in late July/early August, 2015! The Union Bluff is immediately accessible to a delightful cove beach, and guests can sit and enjoy fantastic ocean views from a... More

After a long day at short sands beach this is a great place to have a cold beer and bite to eat. Pub fare and reasonably priced. Never have had a bad meal or service. Have stayed a hotel in past and was very clean, and rooms nice. Also, have a decent breakfast.

I'm writing this review a month after checking into the Union Bluff for a week, something my family & I have done for about ten years. Upon check out, I received a customer survey, honestly voiced my concerns, and never received any feedback. Soooooo, I'm giving my honest review here. 1. Check in was a breeze. Our room was ready...
