My husband and I stayed there for 2 nights. Very clean but dark bedspreads made to room look dark and dingy. Air conditioner was on the wall near the ceiling and you couldn't see or reach controls. Bathroom was small but clean. Towels were thin and small. Room had small fridge a TV and a microwave. Which was nice. Beach... More

Perfect location & view. Outdated, with carpet & linens. Flat pillows, WIFI is HORRIBLE! Patio chairs, tables & lounge chairs out back are great. The view & location make it worth it, but not the nicest place

Really loved being right on the ocean...it was a big plus! Loved keeping the windows open & hearing the ocean thru the night. The only negative I have is they were renovating for the summer season & did not get the room I had reserved. We also had no WiFi while there....

Unlike many of the reviewers previous, I stayed in the upper building in 305, the nice corner room. The room was modern and clean (also disappointed in the fact there was no microwave) and everything was freshly painted and working just fine. The bed mattress was also new with clean linens daily. The view was spectacular and opening windows to... More

We've spent many years of of wonderful experiences at the Cutty Sark Motel. I love the sound of the ocean outside of my room. The Hughes family and Patricia are always so gracious and welcoming that it's like coming home again. A totally wonderful place to be.

I made a reservation for my husband and I to spend a few days for our anniversary. When we got there, we could clearly see there was construction going on, and not just a little - it was most of the first and second floor rooms of the original building being renovated. I knew we were on the 3rd floor,... More

This unexpected gem of a find made our day! We had a view of York Beach from our room and were minutes from the Nubble Light House & the best restaurant in the area (Fox's). Prices at this lovely family owned motel are more reasonable than the large chains

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
