Very very nice small hotel. Rick and Joe the owners are very hospitable. I stayed in a 5 star resort in Montauk NY last week and the Dolphin Den is by far a better place to call home for three nights. Close to town....an easy walk to all the great shops and restaurants. If you get a chance make Dolphin... More

This was a great area to stay and a plus that the dogs could come too. I didn't realize there was complimentary toiletries as I didn't bring shampoo since most places have little bottles. There was none in the room so didn't even think to ask. The park behind was great for the dogs and most of the restaurants allowed... More

I am so impressed with The Dolphin Den that I can't stop recommending it to friend's who own dogs. I have stayed in many hotels that state they are dog friendly, then go on to say, "Please don't leave your dogs unattended." What??? That is NOT dog friendly. I was so impressed when Rick told us that we can go... More

Excellent place to stay especially if you have a dog. Very clean, cozy, and most of all very quiet. Your host will bend backwards to make sure you have everything you need. Close to all restaurants, beach, and shops. Love it!!!

We loved this little motel/inn! It is within walking distance to everything Ogunquit! Rick was the ultimate host who made sure we had everything we needed. The rooms are bright and cheery and clean. I loved the ceiling fan so we did not need the air conditioner. The only suggestion I would make is that in room hairdryers and shampoo... More

Ogunquit is a favorite getaway of mine and I try to bring “new recruits” with me to enjoy its splendor each year. This time I traveled with a friend that brought her very chill pooch along. On outings like this one, there is only one place that comes to mind – The Dolphin Den. Since my last stay, I noticed... More

Close to beach with cute rooms. Very dog friendly. Personal attention was excellent. The manager Rick, was great. I will return when I come back to this area. They made us feel very welcome and we were thrilled with the nearby dog park. Great place.

Here's the truth. The host, Rick, couldn't be any nicer. The rooms, they could be. We booked what Rick said was their largest room, and people always ask for it when they return (people return?). The room wasn't even as large in what you might find in a roadside motel. Mind you, this is a converted garage that they turned... More
