“Pleasant Surprise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

We are regular visitors to the Ogunquit area and decided last minute to go for the weekend. All of our favorite places were booked so we decided to take a chance on the Sea View. Glad we did! Located right on Main St., this motel had everything we could possibly need or want. The room was very clean and spacious.... mini refrigerator, coffee maker, flat screen tv and excellent wifi connection! The continental breakfast was fresh and adequate....a nice start to the day. The breakfast room was very small but trays were provided so you could bring it back to your room...a nice touch. We enjoyed ours on the balcony outside our room. Did I mention how good the coffee was?? Overall a great experience...we would definitely go back!

This was my first stay at the Sea View and I couldn't have been happier with the motel. It's conveniently located on Main Street (on the trolley route). There is a pool and a hot tub. The frig was large enough for beverages and snacks and even a microwave. The breakfast was much more than "continental" (coffee, juice, hard boiled eggs, yogurt, hot/cold cereal, english muffins, bagels, small pastries, fruit). In the afternoon, there were cookies (or mini muffins), coffee, and water available if you needed a little something sweet. The staff went out of their way to be helpful with directions, restaurant recommendations, etc. Karen, the owner spent about 15 minutes chatting with us near the pool and it was quite a warm day. I'm a light sleeper and luckily wasn't bothered by other guests or street noise. Being able to sit on the balcony with a cup of coffee or breakfast was simply delightful.

Room Tip: I'm not sharing!!

We've stayed at the Sea View for the past few years and find it a good value considering its location within a long walk from the heart of Ogunquit. The rooms are consistently clean and well-maintained, as are the common facilities. The pool and hot tub are lovely. The flat-screen TVs are truly high-def - impressive! The wi-fi works (better than cell service in the area)! The breakfast (included with stay) is adequate. Parking is convenient and always available, even when the place is full. Some of the newly-renovated rooms have hardwood floors (rather than carpeting), and we could hear our neighbors above and next door for a night or two. We also found the hot tub excessively hot but management lowered the temp somewhat after we complained. All in all, the Sea View is one of the best values in the area and management works hard to keep it that way.

Room Tip: Request a carpeted room.

Great location within walking distance of town center and beach. Trolley stop in front for those who prefer to ride. Definitely an older property but Love the new upgrades to rooms and property. Very clean and comfortable. Staff very friendly and helpful. Continental breakfast provided, though improved, could still use a little tweaking. All in all, great place to stay when visiting Ogunquit, beautiful place by the sea.

We are so happy you enjoyed your total Ogunquit experience. It's a great little spot for sure. We've incorporated many upgrades and we appreciate your letting us know how nice they have turned out! The breakfast is always on our minds and we continually look for new items and other ways to improve it. The location of our breakfast set up also let's us interact with our guests which is one of our goals as owners, Stay tuned! Thanks again. JJ and Karen Mokarzel, Owners

I really liked the staff here...helpful and friendly on all shifts. The room was clean; comfortable bed; mini fridge and large screen tv. I had end room 31 near street but didn't hear any noise from traffic. Pool very refreshing and breakfast fresh.
Walk to beach in 12 minutes or so if you don't take beach street. Hannaford grocery about 4-5 miles down the road.

We spent 4 nights at the Sea View Motel. This is a great place in a convenient location that is owned and operated by very nice people.

We had three generation in two rooms for our visit. The rooms are all recently renovated, neat, clean and practical. The stay-over housekeeping was fine. New TVs are great. The WIFI system seems to work everywhere on the property. Nice to relax outside at a picnic table and do work/fun from the laptop while enjoying a beer.

Breakfast was great - basic but quite fulfilling. Pastries, bagels, muffins, cereal, yogurt, eggs, fruit, and of course coffee and juice. In fact coffee is available free of charge all day. They serve cookies in the afternoon as well which is quite a nice touch.

The kids enjoyed the pool while parents enjoyed the Jacuzzi. Both are clean, neat and well maintained.

Easy walk to town and the beach. If you want to ride the trolley, there is a stop right out front.

We stayed in the Garden Terrace rooms that have wood floors and are away from the parking lot. There is a real sense of privacy here. Room rates were quite reasonable given what others are still charging the last week of August.

The staff is all very friendly and helpful. The desk staff goes out of their way to help you. The hotel staff that serves breakfast and does other work on the property are all friendly and accommodating. You can't help to relax and feel at home with the staff.

Sure - you could find fancier places closer to the center of town. For the price, the location and the service, this is a great value in a convenient location run by people who do sincerely care. I would not hesitate to bring the family back next year for another great visit and stay at the Sea View Motel.
