The owner Bob is awful. My family has been renting there for 1 week in the summer for 25 years. Bob was rude enough to my family that we will never go back again! The cabins in the rear are absolute fire hazard! Definitely not up to code! Stay away!

We were going to try to get in a little early but there was a sign on the office door saying they don't allow early check-ins. This wasn't a big deal because we were right across the street at the beautiful beach anyways. When we checked in the woman at the front desk was very nice and helpful. We had a 2 room suite in the Manor House wth 3 queen beds. Each room had a small outside deck with chairs which was nice. Both rooms were large and had their own TV. The whole suite was very clean. There was a kitchen area with a small fridge, a microwave, and a coffee maker. There was also a sink and there was even eating utensils, plates, cups, etc. The bath had a huge walk-in shower with a rainfall head and a wand! The bath was very large. My only issue with the Inn was that the old cement pool could have been cleaaner but we still enjoyed swimming in it. The beds were comfortable. The Inn is directly across from the beach and we would definitely love to stay in that suite again!

The mini Suites in the Manor House are spacious with balcony (limited ocean view). The one downside, only one bathroom for six people was not ideal. Beds were very comfortable, rooms were clean and nicely decorated. During the night, we could hear walking and screaming from the room above. The only place to get ice was in the office, which is in a different building. The pool was closed for our stay, got different stories for reason it was closed. The big upside to this place is the walk across the street to beautiful Long Sands Beach. We love York Beach and return often, not sure that we will stay here again.

Thank you for your review! We appreciate you staying with us! We are sorry you were inconvenienced by the guest above you with the screaming. If the front desk was notified we would have gone and talked to the guest. We do have ice in the office, however there is an ice machine located on the second floor of the Manor House. The pool was closed because of a notification from the State saying that we had "faded" signs and one of the latches to the pool was not closing properly. We notified our maintenance staff right away about this issues. We do hope you will come back in 2020 to stay with us again!

Let me start off by saying i never write reviews but i feel like i needed to speak my peace and help others. We stayed in the newer building manor house thinking it'd be clean. Shower was not cleaned, shower curtain had to be taken down and stored under cabinet because it smelt so bad of mildew, hairs all over the place. The toilet paper roll broke off, trash on balcony, carpets stained, the list goes on. This is the room description we got online... Room Description BRAND NEW BUILDING! 3rd floor with 2 queen beds, efficiency kitchen, and ocean view from private deck. TIP: Don't try to check in early, lady at front desk will rip your face off, mind you check in is at 3pm, we arrived at 2:30pm. She could of politely stated i will check if room is ready instead of attitude right off the bat. Not a good start to the stay. If you look at pictures yes we had private balcony but ocean view is not existent unless you're a giraffe and hang over the railings. Our view was of the other units. If the older lady at the front desk wasn't so rude and miserable these things would of been easier to deal with. We also arrived to find the pool closed due to maintenance. Totally understandable, but when curious about the reopening or even why it was closed we were told "SIGH, i am just as much in the dark as everyone else is". Not really sure how she works in customer service and may want to rethink profession. Now we understand the negative reviews and wish we would of listened. The room we had was $370.00 a night, not worth it one bit. Keep looking, stay anywhere but here.

Thank you for your review. We have no record of this situation being reported either by our housekeepers or front desk staff. If front desk had been notified about how unhappy you were with the room when you checked in, we would have been more than happy to move you to another room. In addition to the private balconies, each floor has a ocean front common area deck for your enjoyment. Additionally, next season we will be replacing some of our front desk staff. We hope you come back and try us again!!

We had a pleasant 2 night last minute beach trip. As other reviewers mention. Definitely try to get into the newer Hotel. We stayed in a second floor Motel room and it was showing its age. But no complaints. My comments to the staff would just be give the rooms a detailed check once a month. Our room felt extremely dusty but then we pulled and rinsed out the ACs filter and that may never had been done. After that it was fine the air was nice again! But otherwise was nice. Rooms are basic with just the 2 beds and bath. And you have a short walk across the street to Long Sands Beach. Hotel was 97% families and older couples. There was maybe 1 group of younger people who kept their collection of Bud Light Empties outside the room but they never made any noise. Only other complaint was a neighbor room smoking outside (pretty sure thats a no no but what you gonna do)

Thank you for taking the time to offer your feedback on our hotel. While we do have a well-trained housekeeping staff on site, we understand that some items may get overlooked during the busiest parts of our season. We are in the process of updating some of the motel rooms this winter. We do get a lot of families that enjoy our outdoor pool and of course the proximity of the beach which is right across the street is a plus. We sincerely hope you consider us should you make a return trip to York Beach!
