Having stayed at other hotels in Ogunquit, this time we decided to try a studio unit so we could have our coffee in room etc. Although not right on the ocean, it's a quick walk across the street to the beginning of the Marginal Way, which is always spectacular. The location was convenient for walking to restaurants, Perkin's Cove etc.
Our unit was very clean and the bed was quite comfortable. The kitchen area is very compact, has no counter space and is in need of TLC. In order to use the coffee pot, you had to place it on the burners of the stove in order to reach a plug. We didn't use the stove so that worked reasonably well, but was inconvenient. We didn't use the toaster or microwave as they were on a rather wobbly cart beside the TV and there was no convenient plug so I'm not sure how people use them. I'm not sure if all units are configured this way or not. For our stay it wasn't an issue but if people rent planning to have meals ensuite it could be difficult, even dangerous with the current set-up.
One of my pet peeves is worn, thin, small towels -- something that could be improved here. On the positive side, the bathroom was clean, spacious and had good lighting. The property itself appeared very well maintained, clean inside and out, and well landscaped. We didn't find time to use the indoor pool/hot tub, but it appeared in good repair. Good value for $$ except for the kitchen area which is why I did not rate rooms as very good.
