I loved this hotel. We had an ocean front double queen room. The view was amazing! Going to sleep listening to the waves crashing is the best! The room was larger than I expected and very comfortable. They have contactless check in that was very efficient. There is no daily housekeeping because of covid safety measures but were very responsive when you needed anything. Text messages were always answered immediately. The staff at the hotel and restaurant were super friendly. I look forward to staying there again!
They tried but seriously not a good experience. The room was tiny and crowded. Noisy like no other. We heard every word, move, unpleasant sounds like luggage on the wood deck, beds moving, people urinating , toilets flushing , showers constantly running etc. The location is ideal but the accommodations grim. Felt like we were camping. Not our thing.
Everything about this place is fantastic! I had booked months prior to our trip and forgot what I selected. When we walked into our room (#6 in the main building) and saw the sliding glass doors to a balcony facing the ocean, we literally gasped. Everything was clean and comfortable. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. We arrived at dinner time. The restaurant downstairs had a 20-minute wait; so they made up our order to go, and we ate on our balcony. Couldn’t have asked for a better way to cap off a long day on the road. The next morning, we watched the sunrise and took a walk to the Nubble Lighthouse (~a mile each way) before getting back on the road. Can’t wait to return to spend some more time in York.
I think it’s my 6 yr going and already booked for next sept. Best view you can ask for. Hotel is clean and staff is quick to help with any questions . Easy check in . Restaurants right there to grab a nice meal.Look forward to next yrs trip and enjoying the time there
Beautiful, clean, new rooms right on the water! Each room has a private balcony facing the ocean. Great amenities-- recycling, composting, environmentally-friendly products. Very comfortable bed. Contactless check in.
I really enjoyed how close I was to the beach. The room was clean and simple, and the sound of the ocean at night was priceless. I stopped here for the night on my way to Bar Harbor and I'm glad I made this choice.
My daughter and I spent one night on September 8, 2020. Fabulous room with a perfect view! The "contactless" check-in was seamless, easy and smart. We are visitors to Long Sands Beach since 1989. Stone's Throw is among the best accommodations in York.
Stayed for two nights and loved it! We had an oceanfront room with a balcony overlooking Long Sands Beach in York, Maine. The room was small but extremely clean and the beds were very comfortable. Everyone we met who worked there was very pleasant and helpful. The general store next door had a number of breakfast items available so we purchased pastries and coffee and enjoyed them on our patio while watching the surfers and the folks walking the beach across the road. Just a quick walk downstairs and across the road and you were on the beach! Would definitely recommend a stay at Stones Throw to anyone looking for a place to stay at Long Sands Beach.
What a great relaxing time! My husband and I were just there to celebrate our wedding anniversary and we wanted some down time with quiet. We were there during the off season and that was just fine with us. The view from room 3 was FANTASTIC! This is right across the street from Long Sands which was the relaxation we were looking for. The room was clean and I liked they were a "green" company with their recycling nd the products they chose to use. The staff was very nice from check in to housekeeping. There is no microwave which would have been nice and the balconies were individual with an attempt at privacy. It would have been nice to have the privacy glass up a little higher as it was a little strange if you were standing at the edge and the ones next to you were sitting. It felt a little uncomfortable. It was just my husband and I but the bathroom door doesn't latch and this was a room with double beds. Good for a family but could be a little strange if you were staying with friends. Hope to stay again as the fantastic view cannot get any better, so if you are an ocean girl like I am you will be very happy with the ocean front rooms.…
Stayed here for 1 week in an oceanfront room. The room itself was cute and clean. Although the location across from the beach was nice to look at ocean and access the beach, the noise from restaurant and street was excruciating. I wanted to leave after the first night... the hotel was all booked so we couldn’t switch rooms to the back of property where it might be quieter. The walls are paper thin. We could here every single move from neighbors and patrons of restaurant. The room was directly over the restaurant so there was no peace until closing time. The curtains on sliding glass door do not keep bright sunlight out so plan to wake up at crack of dawn. Horrible if you want to sleep. Plus you have to walk through the back of restaurant to get to the room... it felt like a rooming house. I give it a 1/2 star. and that is only because the housekeeping was excellent.…
