Nice place to spend time on the beach. Rooms clean and silent. Easy parking the car and live the village by foot. Simply breakfast but in a beautiful location. A great terrace on the sea where you can read a book, admire the tides on take or just wait for the moon!!

Stayed here for a few nights with our family to have some beach vacation. We took a room without sea view but still enjoyed the great view from the breakfast table and from the garden. From here you see the tide and it's quite an event with the little bay in front going through a small metamorphosis. Staff also very... More

Great place to stay at reasonable price. Adult family oriented which we like and walking distance to a wonderful beach and downtown shopping and great restaurants. The trolley takes you to the north to Wells and south to Perkin's Cove! The Marginal Way is a beautiful walk along the coastline! Facilities need some updating, grounds beautiful and heated pool.

Although my wife and I have been vacationing on the coast of Maine for at least 25 years, we had never stayed at Terrace by the Sea. Friends of ours had and told us that the July 4th weekend was a good time to go there. We did and we are quite pleased that we did. Let me say that... More

My daughter and I had a quick visit to Ogunquit this week and stayed at the lovely Terrace by the Sea. The location is amazing. Convenient to everything. The property has spectacular views of the beach and the Marginal Way. We stayed in the Deluxe building. The room was spacious and very clean but it needs some updating. Having said... More

Unfortunately, I feel compelled to report a disappointing experience. The service quality of the manager, in my humble opinion, was lacking in actual hospitality. Perhaps she was having a bad day (however, my perception was that her decision-making process was unilaterally directive, frankly rude in tone and without compromise). The service staff themselves were fine. The continental breakfast was also... More

The location of this property is perfect and the views are gorgeous. The inn has nice old fashioned furnishings but the back 2 story motel needs updating. Very disappointed with this room. We had to change rooms since the first one was not acceptable. I hope they will put some tender loving care into this property since it has so... More

Stayed at the Terrace for three nights with my boyfriend. We were very pleased with the location (5 min walk to the entrance of the Marginal Way, the far end from Perkins Cove), right on the footpath to Ogunquit Beach and a few steps away from Shore Rd which is filled with shops and restaurants, also walking distance to the...

As the majority of the reviews are repeats --- this is no different. Once you visit / stay --- the probability that you will be back is high! As everyone previously has written --- great location, within walking distance to everything in town, with the marginal way just close enough for a nice walk / view. Also, as folks have... More

This was our first time staying here and we were not disappointed, everyone was so welcoming and friendly, wonderful atmosphere, warm and inviting, close to the beach and downtown so you can walk to everything, it is did not break the bank for room rates. We enjoyed it so much we already booked for next year when we checked out.... More
