Average at best. Upgraded to a balcony room that overlooked the parking lot. Continental breakfast was just OK. Could only enter the bed from one side because it was so close to the wall. Beautiful location, grounds and gardens. Walking distance to the Marginal Way. For one night it was OK but wouldn't want to spend longer in the room... More

HOTEL’S FAVORITE REVIEW
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2016

We have stayed at Terrace-by-the-Sea for several years. It is the perfect location if you're staying in lovely Ogunquit. Motel rooms, inn rooms, some ocean views, lovely manicured lawns and just a nice walk on the path to Ogunquit Beach. Each year there are room renovations. There's a complete continental breakfast with small tables both on the porch outside and... More

The buffet breakfast selection has a variety of choices and is ample. The grounds and flowers are beautiful and well maintained. The location is perfect with a short walk to town or to... More

We stay at The Terrace by the Sea about four times a year. We love it there. The rooms are very clean, service great and a delicious breakfast. We tried to get a room last minute for this Saturday but they are sold out. We are very sad but we always go back. Perfect place to stay.

Went here for a two night getaway with the hubs. From the minute we got there the 2 very nice maintenance men let us park our truck while we went in to get our room number. The girl at the desk was very pleasant. Check in went smooth. The grounds are gorgeous and very well maintained. The pool was awesome... More

Just returned from 4 nights at The Terrace By The Sea. This was our 6th trip to Ogunquit and God willing will return again next year. We stayed in the main house and while our room was a bit dated it was adequate for our needs. It was very clean and had a nice size bathroom with tub and shower.... More

This hotel could not be more central to everything in Ogunquit. The room was great, the staff was extremely friendly and helpful and the ocean view from the front porch was incredible. Would highly recommend this hotel if are going to visit Ogunquit.

My wife and I spent 2 nights here on a last minute birthday(hers) trip. The location was pretty nice........a short walk to the beach and also to the quaint downtown area. However, it is very pricey and wasn't quite worth the $$ that we paid. You average motel type room..........had 2 queen beds(uncomfortable)....the pillows too. and a loft that wasn't... More

We returned to Ogunquit and Terrace by the Sea after nearly 10 years, we found Terrace by the Sea as comfortable and friendly as it has been in the past. The room accommodations in the Deluxe Motel were clean, comfortable and spacious for the two of us. The room had two large queen beds and a pull out sofa with... More

Our 4th trip to Ogunquit from Ireland and another wonderful vacation. Our first time at Terrace by the Sea - the location is fantastic with its views of the sea; the breakfasts are wonderful; rooms big and well maintained; and the best ice cream in Maine 60 seconds away! A wonderful stay.
