As stated it's the only motel on the ocean. What they didn't tell us that there is a 20' drop onto rocks. You have to walk about 75 yard to get to the beach so you could of stayed across the street. They advertised breakfast but only during peak season and there isn't a place to eat even breakfast for... More

We were in room 39. I scoped it out and I believe that it's the best view in the hotel. It's the top floor corner room of the lower building. (Conversely, I believe room 28, right below, might be the worst room as the stairs are right outside and the laundry is below). We had two windows with views of... More

I reached out to this motel to inquire about booking rooms for the September 2015 season as I will be getting married in York and would like to offer this option to our guests. The woman I spoke with said they refused to take groups at this point. I explained I wasn't looking for a room block, rather, just to... More

the best location, fantastic view, lovely lawn with lots of chaises, chairs. Room had been updated, so it was perfectly serviceable. The guy at the front desk was very nice to let my cousins use the parking lot for several hours too. Only complaint was that the armchair in our room had not been re-upolstered, so although it was 90%... More

As many others have written, we've been staying at the Cutty Sark several times a year for 25+ years, even in early January when we are the only ones there. We go for the view of the ocean -- unmatched, but the view is no longer worth some of the other inconveniences. Two weeks ago we stayed for 3 nights... More

Stayed here for one night, that was enough. This place has great view, but the motel is old. Needs some TLC! Beds are very hard. With such a great location, you'd think they would invest in fixing the place up. Too bad!

The rooms are comfortable and very clean. The service is great. We wanted a reservation for for 4 people; one of which had cancer and was very weak. The person who answered the phone was polite and worked very hard to accommodate what we needed. It turned out we couldn't go because the cancer patient became worse. They were very... More

Excellent veiw as always very nice people at the desk as well as the cleaning personel. Would go back every year with no hesitation. The location is nice because the Nubble is just down the road and you are just 5 minutes from the town and the other activities.

We have been staying here for years wonderful view from every room and the grassy picnic area outside is lovely at high tide. That being said this year we were moved three times in three days. We reserved a room with AC and it was broken so were moved to a different room with AC and then we had to... More

This hotel has a great view of the beach. The hotel is a little worn but very clean. Owners were very nice. They had a small table out in the morning with muffins, coffee, yes and hot chocolate. We would stay there again.
