“stay here!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2010

Innkeepers Betsy and Dale were terrific people, and they clearly were the attraction that brought in both tourists and locals. Port Clyde is a wonderful - very small - town, that was fun and a great escape location. Breakfast was a cook to order menu with 5-6 choices, and excellent. Coffee was brewing early. Computer was available for eamil catch up. The guests were laid back and enjoying being served. Dale has set up a happy hour bar in the adjoining bar, and brought in some local entertainment and lots of customers having fun. Prices were reasonable for oceanfront and views to die for. There is a great "in the rough" restaurant on the bay within 50 yards, which catered to overnight guests, boaters, and local clients. We loved our stay.

I stayed at the Seaside Inn for one night in the Captain's Cabin. The room offered a spectacular view of the harbor and dock. The room was spacious and very welcoming. The bathroom was clean, although the buildout around the shower made it a bit difficult to get in and out of the shower. In addition, there was little light provided within the shower.

The breakfast provided was very good and cooked to order. We were given an egg option and our choice of fruit or muffin, all of which was very tasty. I highly recommend the Dip Net for dinner (located across the street, behind the Port Clyde General Store). We ran over to the restaurant in a torrential downpour (from someone who's lived in the desert their entire life...) but it was well worth it. The lobster ravioli is to die for!

While comfortable, the Inn did not provide what I would say is a typical B&B experience. That would definitely not stop me from staying again, as everything about the Inn was pleasant, just not the experience I was necessarily expecting.

I spent one night at the Seaside Inn before heading to Monhegan Island. The location was great -- very convenient to the dock and ferry. The staff at the Inn are superb -- very friendly and helpful. A hot breakfast with a variety of choices is served and is very delicious. My only negative comment is that folks like to gather in the common room to chat before going to bed, and if your room is at the top of the stairs this can be quite loud. Overall this Inn is a great value for the price and you cannot beat the location, cleanliness and amenities.

The Seaside isn't really a B & B, it's managed by a property company and the owners don't live there. (And the Inn is up for sale.)
That said, the room we had was clean, spacious and had a killer view from the windows looking out over the Port Clyde harbor and all it's various activities.

We stayed 2 nights, and breakfast each morning was your choice of an egg dish along with fruit and fresh baked muffins. And finally, decent cups of coffee.

There is wi-fi in the rooms although the signal is weak 95% of the time. The place is a bit worn around the edges, but really who cares as long as it's clean?

One disappointment was when I asked the girl who checked us in for places in the area to hike and she couldn't give me any ideas except the trip over to Monhegan (which we weren't interested in).

You could have dinner at the Inn if you made reservations, but we wanted to eat at the Dip Net across the street so we took a pass.

During my recent Maine trip, I stayed at a number of fleabag places and one gem: the Seaside Inn. The place is immaculate, beautiful, romantic, cozy. The breakfast is outstanding.

There's a shared mini-fridge and microwave oven. Nice communal room for travelers to meet (although it was pretty empty when I was there). Excellent location near the lighthouse and quaint town of Port Clyde.

The Seaside Inn was a superlative experience.

  • Liked — Location near lighthouse
  • Disliked — Room was rather small.

We happened upon the Seaside Inn more or less by accident since we did not expect to find lodging while visiting the "end of the line" harbor village of Port Clyde, ME on the tip of St. George Peninsula.

As a bed and breakfast it offered more amenities than expected such as private bath, king size beds, and a lounge/library where fresh coffee is always available and the inn keeper had placed a loaf of freshly baked banana bread to enjoy with our coffee or tea.

The inn sits on a hillside on the street paralleling the harbor with terrific views of the working boats and rustic buildings along the wharf.

Our breakfast was "cook's choice", large waffles covered with in-season fresh strawberries and blueberries. For other tastes the menu was not limited to the special. There was cereal, fruit, toast and "fixin's".

The innkeeper was very hospitable, anxious to please, available for any need, but not intrusive. We would gladly have enjoyed a few more days there if our schedule had permitted.

  • Liked — Friendliness and comfort
  • Disliked — Slight difficulty in carrying luggage up the grassy hillside from the parking lot

We were looking for a true Maine experience for a spring getaway that would also be quiet and relaxing. We found the PERFECT spot at the Seaside Inn B&B!! Maggie and the "folks" at the Inn were very gracious and hospitable, the inn is immaculately clean, and very well set up. The breakfasts were absolutely wonderful - great food and lots of it!
If you are looking for a true Maine seaport village and a great place to stay, too, this is the place!
Our stay with Maggie and the Seaside Inn was truly the vacation we were looking for and we will be back!!
