The room was very clean, and beautiful! The view of the ocean from the balcony was stunning. The Inn, and it’s employees were all lovely! The only complaint was that the restaurant was very slow with seating and service, but I understand staffing is an issues everywhere right now. It was an quick Uber ride into Portland, and the beach just down the boardwalk was beautiful!
This has to be one of the nicest looking dog friendly hotels we’ve ever visited. The ocean view accommodations offer beautiful vistas, comfortable beds and a lot of attention to our dog. They provided a dog blanket, bowls, placemat, doggie bags and a huge biscuit! Beautiful grounds with an evening fire pit and trail to the beach. Too cold for the pool or outdoor dining but the restaurant was amazing, and the fireplace room allows pets so we had breakfast there. Dogs at every table. We loved it and recommend it even if you don’t have a pet.
This resort is ideal. Everything was spotlessly clean, cozy, and well designed. There was a beautiful view and helpful staff. In every season, the gardens and spa are wonderful. Of course, we'll return the next time we visit Maine.
The inn has become our favorite place to stay. The staff is amazing - all guests are made to feel special and appreciated. My massage in the spa was one of the best I have ever had! The food never disappoints. Can’t wait to be back!
The restaurant needs a better staff of people who actually know how to prepare and present food. Our food was served lukewarm to cold and very uninspired. This is an issue when it's cold and you don't fancy going out at night.
My husband and I stayed Monday thru Friday. Staff is extremely nice and helpful. Service was great. Location is good for summer time. The pictures are misleading. The lighthouse is a few miles away. We did not have a direct ocean view like we thought. And for some reason our room on the first floor was only accessible by taking an elevator or stairs up then going down a flight to get to room. Very strange. Our bedroom was freezing from drafty windows. Bathroom needs an actual door and an exhaust fan. It’s extremely cold in bathroom. But over all it was nice visit. Staff and service made it.
A perfect place to relaxant unwind while still being close enough to enjoy Portland’s great dining. The Spa and grounds are perfect regardless of season. I recommend a walk on the beach for a feeling of being on a desert island.
You cannot go wrong by spending a night or more at Inn by the sea. It is a fantastic hotel...a beautiful facility with awesome staff. They've clearly taken a great deal of time and pride to make sure that anything a guest might want is there before they ask for it. This was our first visit and we'll be back for sure
I stayed at The Inn by the Sea to consider it for a gathering I am planning next Spring. The staff is very attentive, the rooms are nicely appointed and clean. The outdoor areas are lovely. I enjoyed taking the path to the beach for walks. The location is what makes this place. And being pet friendly is a plus. Unfortunately, the fireplace in my room was inoperable, the pull out sofa bed needs a new mattress, and the stopper in the bathtub didn't work. Management should make sure that small issues like these don't occur since this is a 4 star hotel, and the room rates reflect this. Otherwise, I was pleased overall and have decided to hold my event here next year.
Perfect stay at a perfect oceanfront resort. The rooms were impeccable, staff accommodating, view magnificent. Wish we could have stayed longer. We didn't want to leave. Our only regret is that we didn't allow more time on our itinerary for this lovely destination.
