Just returned from the weekend. The location was perfect, right across from the ocean. but at the southern end of the beach, away from the crowds but accessible to everything. All staff were outstanding, went above and beyond to make sure we had a wonderful time.

Enjoy peace and tranquility, be lulled to sleep with the sound of the ocean. York Harbor is located just across the street from the ocean for a breathtaking view and beach access. Over the years the rooms have up graded to include microwave, frig, coffee maker and air conditioning. I have found the rooms to be clean, the staff welcoming,... More

After reading all the reviews on this site, I was skeptical. My mom had already booked the room, so we went anyway. First off, the place was very clean and there was no terrible smell like a few reviews had indicated. It wasn't a huge room, but it was big enough. It had a coffee pot, a toaster, and a... More

The location is great and the people were nice but the motel itself was gross. My family and I stayed for 1 night and my 6 year was holding her nose when she walked in because of the stench. The carpet was disgusting and there was dirt on the walls. We love the town of York but don't waste your... More

My best friend and I stayed at the York Harbor Motel and Cottages while visiting Maine for our 50th birthday celebrations to ourselves. I originally booked a 2-bedroom cottage and was pretty excited about it. However, when we checked in and went to the cottage we noticed there was no toilet paper. No problem, we called the front desk and... More

Just came back from a post Labor Day trip with my family. The weather was fabulous on Sat so we decided to take a trip to the Maine Seacoast. While driving around York Harbor, we found this motel. It is in a perfect location. The Maine rocky coast line is almost on top of you. You can feel the ocean... More

We loved this little place, it's right across the street from the ocean. Nothing fancy, but VERY clean. The lady at the front desk was very friendly and willing to answer our "touristy" questions, they even let my husband use the hose to wash our motorcycle. We did not get a chance to use the pool, but it looked very... More
