“Amazing View”
Reviewed June 20, 2011

Just stayed at the Beachmere Inn and fell in love. The view from our balcony was amazing. Many of the other hotels along the Marginal Way have their front door facing the view therefore when you sit outside other people are walking by you. At the Beachmere, your view is from your balcony so it's wonderful to sit outside and relax. Even though most of the time the weather was horrible, it still was amazing to watch the waves crash on the rocks. Very clean room and grounds.

An amazing property, lovely grounds, perfectly located right on the Marginal Way. Nasty cold wind driven rain has made outside activities difficult.

We are in the older part od the hotel, room 216, and wish we had gone to the newer rooms, especially since we've spent so much time in ours! The bath in 216 is quite tiny, with an angled small sink area outside of the bath itself.

It looks like the property went through an amazing transformation about 6 years ago, and from the outside, it was truly a remarkable design and integration of old and new. We do wish we had chosen one of the newer rooms.

However the furniture in our room is new, the bed and linens very comfy, and the breakfast goodies delicious and varied.

We did not like the glass door to the outer corridor. The mini blind still let in way too much light from the very bright exterior hall light. We had to rig a blanket over the door to darken the room somewhat.I would truly suggest a room darkening blind on both glass doors.

Great view of the whipped up surf from all of the balconies I'd imagine! We hope to be back in some more promising weather. We were treated to some champagne for out 35th anniversary, and we agreed if we had to choose great weather, better we had it for the actual wedding 35 years ago. Later we saw a bridal party at the Beachmere! I'm sure it was a great event regardless.it is warm and gracious service.

I just returned from a four night stay at the Beachmere, unit 223 west building. The location is outstanding with direct access to the marginal way, about a ten minute walk to Perkins Cove in one direction and Ogunquit beach in the other direction. It is also a very short walk from the property to the center of the village. Our room was very clean and modern, with a beautiful view of the ocean and tidal river. The Beachmere offers a continental breakfast every morning in the restaurant in the lobby, seating is limited and we brought ours back to the room. They even have kindles to loan to their guests, which I had never seen at a hotel. Overall the property is first rate and appears to be just a notch above it's neighbors, which all appeared to be very nice properties also. The only downside I can think of is there is no pool on property. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again or recommend it to others.

Room Tip: ask for a room in the west building

I don't know exactly how many years we've been coming to the Beachmere, but it's been quite a few. This year, my brother and sister-in-law joined us from Chicago -- she wanted to see the "real" Maine and I assured her that this is truly it. They enjoyed it so much, we've already booked for next year. What I really appreciate is coming back each year and finding even more upgrades and improvements from the last. The lemon poppyseed coffee cake was wonderful. Watching the fog burn off from the Beachmere's cliff overlooking the river and dramatic tide that Ogunquit is known for was a special treat.

we stayed there for a long weekend recently and we were very happy with everything and everyone at the beachmere.
the place was awesome and we loved it from the minute we got there,checked in and got into our room........#219 was clean with a great view and nice balcony facing the courtyard,lawn and ocean......perfect!!!! a big bathroom with double sinks......very clean! a combo kitchen/living room with mini fridge,sink,dishes,silverware,4 chairs and a table to eat at...in the living room area a desk,a nice little couch and a comfy chair with a flat screen tv and dvd player......and in the bedroom a king bed with nightstands,lamps i-home clock radio and a large bureau with another flat screen tv!!!
can't say much more except i would go there anytime if i were in ogunquit..................
the only downside is that the summertime prices do go up a lot after memorial day. "location"....you can walk from there into the center of the town/village....or the other way to perkins cove area either direction in about 15 minutes. and the property is right on the marginal way walking path.........get to the edge of the property and your on it!!!!!

Our late April 2011 stay, the 16th year at the Beachmere, was again like coming home for a visit. Our favorite comfortable and spacious, kitchenette room on the second floor South building with wonderful porches, the incredibly friendly and accomodating staff, and the quiet atmosphere of the off-season complement the spectacular setting on the Marginal Way. We can only visit for a few days, but find the ambiance and charm of the Beachmere conducive to a restful, peaceful, secure getaway retreat that feels like a full vacation. Hospitality for Sarah and her staff does not seem like a job, but a ministry. We would not stay anywhere else!! Sister Joachim and friends

We have stayed at the Beachmere Inn many a summer vacation over the past fifteen or so years. It is consistently the BEST! We had a college tour to do in Maine and my family would not even consider staying anywhere else. The rooms are immaculate, the service is spectacular. We always feel very welcome while we are there. The location couldn't be better either as it is right on the Marginal Way with the ocean right outside your window. The inn is centrally located in town so you can walk just about anywhere. The staff is always courteous and extremely helpful. It is always a pleasure to stay here no matter what the weather or time of year. I am very happy to recommend the Beachmere Inn as it is consistently a clean, charming and wonderful place and you can definitely feel that the owners and staff absolutely care about their visitors and want you to have a relaxing, peaceful vacation. Thanks again, Beachmere Inn,... WE WILL DEFINITELY BE BACK!
