On our recent trip to Maine we decided to travel "Old School" and made no advance reservation, relying primarily on trip advisor to help locate places to stay. The staff was very nice, but made a point to tell me he moved me to a better room for the view. The room had a distinctly musty smell. We shared our... More

Starting with the the room clerk, everything was a plus. The woman who took our walk-in couldn't have been any nicer. The room we chose was a "side view" for a few dollars less than the oceanfront view and did not disappoint. The room was really clean, big points for that, and actually spacious. No bells or whistles, just a... More

Stayed at a 3rd floor motel room for 2 nights in the weekend with a family of four. For this kind of area and location, they offered a great location and services. As a few other reviewers had previously mentioned, the building and rooms were older and outdated. However, I was impressed by their cleanness. The reception staff was genuinely... More

Just returned from the weekend. The location was perfect, right across from the ocean. but at the southern end of the beach, away from the crowds but accessible to everything. All staff were outstanding, went above and beyond to make sure we had a wonderful time.

Enjoy peace and tranquility, be lulled to sleep with the sound of the ocean. York Harbor is located just across the street from the ocean for a breathtaking view and beach access. Over the years the rooms have up graded to include microwave, frig, coffee maker and air conditioning. I have found the rooms to be clean, the staff welcoming,... More

After reading all the reviews on this site, I was skeptical. My mom had already booked the room, so we went anyway. First off, the place was very clean and there was no terrible smell like a few reviews had indicated. It wasn't a huge room, but it was big enough. It had a coffee pot, a toaster, and a... More
