We've been staying at the Union Bluff for close to 20 years, each summer. The staff feels like and treats us, like family! It is a beautiful place both inside and out and offers something for everyone! Looking forward to this summer already....

Our visit was off-peak, which is our favorite time to travel to busy tourist locations. While the shops of the waterfront might have been closed, there were no disappointments with either this marvelous hotel or the sweeping views from the balconies. If you are able, the extra cost for a front facing, waterfront view is worth every penny..our balcony extended... More

This was our second summer in York Beach and we'd had drinks in the bar of this hotel the year before (frankly, it's the only place open into the evening). The room we got was amazing - almost a suite but without a full wall between the two beds, but it worked out great for my husband, teenage daughter and... More

My wife and I were looking for a place to get away for a night and always loved the Maine coast during the slow, off-peak months. No crowds, no traffic, the beaches to ourselves, no long waits at local restaurants... We like to stay in the Southern coastal region as its closer for us, but is also accessible to more... More

I have stayed at the Union Bluff Hotel on several occasions and have never been disappointed. The hotels offers amazing views as well as clean spacious rooms. The suites on the top floor are so worth the money. They offer small balconies that overlook short sands and either have a gas fireplace or jacuzzi tub. The suites also have small... More

Great stay in a great location. We stayed in the main building on the 5th floor. Great sized room with gas fireplace and small kitchenette area if you wanted to sit for coffee, breakfast etc. The Pub downstairs served good food and drinks at decent value. We did not dine in the restaurant but it seemed to be a nice... More

We have been coming here for many years, and have always had a great visit. We always reserve one of the rooms with ocean view via window. Souvenir shopping is within walking distance, as is Short Sands Beach which is very beautiful. Dining located right on the premises in either The Pub or The Grille... meals are very good! The...

We brought my 85 year old mother to Union Bluff because she'd never stayed on the east coast before. I had looked and looked for a hotel on the ocean that had handicapped rooms with somewhat reasonable rates, and boy are they hard to find. But that is how we ended up at Union Bluff, and I'm so glad we... More

We booked this hotel because our friends were getting married at the hotel. We paid over $250 a night. The location of the hotel is wonderful - overlooking the water (depending on the room) and right next to the beach. Majority of the shops in walking distance. We walked to the "Winey sister" (sells wine, booze..etc) and that place had... More
