We had a nice stay at the Lighthouse Inn, the room reminded me of our first home- more like a summer cabin than a hotel. The bed was comfortable, but the air conditioner was noisy, it had an annoying click that would go on and off in bursts (our 8-year-old had fun dancing to the beat which lightened the mood... More

It pains me to have to write a negative review of this property considering how friendly the staff was, but I feel it is necessary to inform potential guests of our experience. Upon check in, the staff immediately charged my credit card for the entire stay, before we even saw the room. It was not a deposit for incidentals like... More

Hi Flo, Thank you for your review, but of course, I am so sorry to hear you didn’t enjoy your stay. I do feel it’s important to also share with our reading community, some comments regarding your review: First of all, I’m sorry you didn’t care for the type of AC we use or the size of the TV. While... More

Don't miss out on this gem! Diane, the owner is personable and attentive. The staff is friendly and helpful. The Inn has it all. You are steps from the best beach in area by far and Nubble Lighthouse is a nice walk away! Just book it and thank me later! Happy sunning.

Any family would be very welcomed here. Diane went out of her wsy to make us comfortable and satisfied. Very nice pool and rooms are exceptionally clean. Beach wagons available for hauling our stuff to Long Sands are only one example of over the top consideration for guests.

This is our third summer staying at the Lighthouse Inn - everything keeps getting better & better! The owner, Diane, has a truly natural affinity for making guests feel right at home, and this hospitality shines through to her staff. My three kids & I stayed for two nights along with my mother. We had connecting deluxe rooms that included... More

Our first visit but not our last. Diane and her staff were wonderful, friendly and helpful. Having two teenage boys we enjoyed the double deluxe room......and they loved it. We had plenty of room. Cleanliness throughout the entire property. Perfect location for walking downtown, and to long or short beach. Breakfast was a treat as well as enjoying the heated... More

The location is perfect. Just a few minute walk to Nubble light house and even closer to York Beach. We were able to easily walk to the short sand and long sand beach and to many of the restaurants in York Beach. The staff were extremely helpful and gave some great recommendations for lunch and dinner. They were also very... More

We stayed here for the weekend and needed room to sleep six. It was a nice layout, so we could comfortably not only stay there but also entertain guests at night. I will say that if our kids were any bigger, I would have considered it sleeping accommodations for five, as the futon bed really doesn't fit two. We were... More

We recently spent 11 days in one of the Carriage House rooms. Diane is a wonderful host and her staff exceeded our expectations. The hotel is close to town and the beaches but tucked away from the crowds.
