we just got back from this place. I give it 5 stars b/c the owner Diane is super friendly and the accommodations were stellar. We had a deluxe room, large enough for a pack and play, all of our things, and room for the kids to have enough space. The breakfast in the morning was just the perfect start to... More

My husband and I stayed here a couple weeks ago and stayed in the Carriage House. It was very clean and decorated nicely. The owner's brother Jack went out of his way to make sure our stay was exceptional and shared some nice stories. The breakfast was plentiful and always fresh from the variety of fruits offered to bagels, muffins,... More

My partner and I stayed here near the very end of what ended up being a month-long, cross-country-and-back, road trip. Here's what I loved: the friendly staff; the spacious, simple room; the availability of a pool; the availability of beach chairs, towels and wagons; the relaxed charm of the office; the breakfast offerings; the very short walk to both Short...

Quiet and clean. The breakfast was very good as well-- hard boiled eggs, cereal, toast, English muffins. The pool was very clean also. Loved being so close to Long Sands beach. Easy walk all around York Beach!

My husband and I just came back from our 2nd vacation there and we stayed in one of the carriage house rooms, which was super clean and beautifully decorated. Very serene and quiet, yet within walking distance of everything we wanted to do. Loved the huge freshly baked muffins, delicious coffee and large assortment of fresh fruit, yogurt, etc in... More

If it looks like a motel and operates like a motel, it is a motel (even if it has pretensions to shake off the motel stigma). All perfectly adequate - clean, if a little worn at the edges - and plenty of space, and fine for a one night stopover, but nothing to lure you back for a second stay.

Though there was a discrepancy as to the correct date at check-in, luckily there was ONE room available due to a no show, so all ended well. Spacious DBL, clean, backed up sink drained 5 minutes after I reported it. Moderately large outdoor pool for a hotel, with adjacent hot tub. Jets could be more powerful, but since i went... More

After a long trip, it was almost like coming home... the lobby was a comfortable beachy living room. The owner Diane, warmly greeted us and shared stories with us during our check-in. She generously was able to accommodate our early check-in as it was just before busy season (May 15th). Her brother Jack was great too...we loved family vibe. It... More

The room was pretty basic, but it was a short walk to Long Sands, and a slightly longer walk to Short Sands Beach. Nice quiet night. Continental breakfast was very nice and the proprietors are some of the nicest people you'll stay with. The only reason I didn't give it four stars is that after one shower, and a bath... More

Ideal location and reasonable prices. Yet close to downtown York and The York Animal Kingdom and Amusement Park. A short ride, jog or walk on scenic Nubble road to the historic lighthouse and spectacular view. The customer service was excellent. My family was greeted on arrival. Clean rooms. Polite, friendly and helpful staff. Especially Maria and Alex. The grounds are... More
