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.

My husband and I come in January for a few nights and then again in March. We always stay in a corner room in the main building with the best views of the ocean. The staff throughout the hotel are friendly and helpful. The pub serves very good onion soup, salads, etc., and the restaurant (open only on weekends in... More

We spent 1 night in a queen corner ocean view room February 23rd. I have been to York many times over my life and had seen this hotel looking over the ocean but didn't ever think about staying there. We were traveling along the Maine coast and I wanted to stay on the ocean to catch a sunrise with sea... More

My husband and I just returned from an overnight at the Union Bluff hotel in York Beach, Maine. Nothing else is open at the Beach so it's beautifully quiet at this time of year. Our room had a deck and an amazing view of the beach. We also attended the wine tasting dinner which was magnificent! We tasted several wines,... More

Lovely hotel, great free coffee, views are amazing and right across the street from Short Sands Beach. I can imagine that parking could be tough in the summer. We really liked the pub, watched an awesome Pat's game, lots of cheering and free pizza.

We were at the Union Bluff for five nights which included News Years Eve. We can verify that everything Bob J. said in his review is true! . All the staff seemed truly happy to work at the Union Bluff. Everyone we came in contact with had a smile on their face. We had a suite on the fifth floor.... More

I must tell you about our quick New Year’s adventure. Being that it is winter and we did not want to be driving around during the evening, for a few reasons – we do look for a place where we can have an all included evening out. The Union Bluff Hotel – was the spot we found, and we had... More
