“Great location, low price, friendly staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2014

I've stayed at the Monkey for years. The owners are very friendly and usually book your room themselves. I've stayed in all of the houses, and the rooms have been clean and comfortable. There is a little bit of a mothball smell though, which I don't mind.

Sometimes if you pay cash, the rooms are even cheaper.

You cannot beat the location or the price.

I Met my husband here. This has become a very special place for us since this is where we met!!!
Great location! You can easily work into town . You can get on the tram and go anywhere! The summer playhouse has wonderful shows and the restaurants have the best lobster.

My friend and I have been staying at the Yellow Monkey for about 20 yrs. What brought us there first was that they allowed pets in rooms with private entrances and we travel with two small dogs. What kept us going back were the owner's, Victor and Peter, their friendliness and willingness to be accommodating, the staff we met and became friendly with over the years, and the other returning guests we like to see each year. Our rooms have always been clean and comfortable. If we need something , all we have to do is ask. We like #17 in the brown house because it is a studio with a bedroom with a nice brick patio..kind of private but with a view of Main St. If your looking for the sterility of a chain hotel where the rooms are the same and people are just faces, look elsewhere. If you're looking for somewhere to kick back, relax, walk to town or the beach, and meet friends, old and new, and be comfortable, give this place a try.

This place really hasn't changed much in many years...and that would be a good thing! We love this place. And the best part is the friendliness of the staff and other guests...especially Peter! It really helped make our vacation special. Can't wait to go back.

We stayed in room 'E1', a beautiful , newly re modeled, large suite with full kitchen and private patio. Great price! Quiet location but with access to common areas where friendly people meet and party together between events downtown. Short walk to shopping, restaurants, dance and comedy bars. The best Beach a short walk away. Heated Jacuzzi for guests is fun. Work out room. Common barbecue area. All age ranges here not overrun with Disco dancers. I met the owner Peter and he's very accommodating. My air conditioner couldn't really cut it in a heat wave. I had a new one in minutes of mentioning it. Staff is friendly and helpful. This is a all male resort. No one is loud and obnoxious. It was great and I would definitely go again.

Room Tip: There are a few low budget rooms. Those are the ones that you may read a negative review. So many mo...

This was a fine guest house. I wish that all could be as accommodating as this guest house was. We were there in early July...the weather in Ogunquit was awful. It rained--down-poured, and our lovely hotel room was even more of a respite because of the weather. We walked up a set of stone stairs to a suite with a small kitchen, a California King Bed, a massive stone wall with a fireplace. Outside the front door was a delightful patio with two lounge chairs a small table and a view of down town Ogunquit.
Just to the back of this suite was the large Jacuzzi. It was fun to use in the rain.
Peter, the owner is very pleasant. He strives to make you feel welcomed and you feel immediately like the grounds are your to play in.
The proximity of the town to this hotel could not be better. Of course, it is not hard to love Ogunquit. It is a quiet, breezy town with quaint gardens, lovely spots to stop and view the scenery and wonderful food and shops to enjoy. This is a 5 star town, and this place fits right in.

Have stayed at the Yellow Monkey many times over the years, some rooms are better than others, but overall no complaints. Just stayed in Room L, gorgeous room, well appointed, clean and comfortable, also enjoyed the period furniture in the room which were of excellent quality. Thanks to the owner, Peter, for offering a great stay at fair prices.
