This is our second visit here and will, we hope, not be our last. We love the central location, the grounds are beautiful. Just being on the deck and listening and looking at the water is so relaxing. The view is wonderful.

Location is fabulous, being at the beginning of the Marginal way. That is a pro along with walking distance to town. Continental Breakfast is free, but a total carb basic breakfast. Would be nice to have hot oatmeal or make your own waffles and some meat of some sort. Cons are a very uncomfortable mattress in #68, which was in... More

This hotel was perfect for our family of 5. Room held all 5 of us, balcony had amazing view! We used the pool, shuffle board and the free morning breakfast was great! The hotel is at the heart of it all...beach views, easy 2 min walk to restaurants, bars and little shops...so quality! Staff were friendly and very helpful.

Great hotel but needs some updating. Stayed at the Barbara Dean house - a little far from the main house which is the only place to get coffee. They should definitely add coffee makers to the rooms. I travel with a 9 year old, and having to leave him sleeping while I get coffee is not ideal. The location is... More

We have been guests of the Sparhawk many times over the years and it is always our first choice of hotel when visiting Maine. The hotel is very clean, the staff (from front desk to cleaning crew to the breakfast shift) are all exceptionally friendly, and you simply cannot beat the location!!

Sparhawk is always consistent and FRIENDLY ! Super place to stay in Ogunquit, but some of the facility is old and is in need of updates. While breakfast is "free", it too could use some updating, like a full service breakfast with menu, waitresses, kitchen cooks. The addition of a Hot Tub in the pool area would be a significant...

Over the years we have had the opportunity to stay at the Sparhawk a few times. The hotel is very well run, professional, and filled with people who are on the ball and care. Other hotels really can take a lesson from how the Sparhawk is run. The property has good size rooms, good amenities, great location. Nothing more to... More
