“We had our wedding here, what a perfect place!!!”
Reviewed August 30, 2011

We had our ceremony and wedding here in July 2011. The place could not have been more perfect. The staff was terrific. Kimberly, the wedding coordinator was exceptional. The food, everyone of our guest raved about. Because this was a destination wedding, I had to rely on all the Beachmeres recommendations for who to use a suppliers for the justice of peace, flowers, sound system and hair salon, all were excellent. Our guest put our wedding at the top of the list for best weddings, it was that perfect!!! I would recommend this hotel for any occasion. Robin

...or at least that's how we felt when we stayed at the Beachmere!

This was our first visit to Maine and it was a wonderful experience. The Beachmere provided everything we could have asked for. The property is amazingly beautiful and well-maintained (kudos to your gardener!) -- the rooms are very well appointed, clean and very comfortable. We stayed in 217 in the West building -- this room has a gas fireplace and came in handy on a cool, rainy Monday night during our stay (check the Beachmere website - you can see exactly what's in each room). We had planned for this (checked the weather before arriving of course!) and popped a DVD movie into the DVD player provided in the room.

Both the King bed in the bedroom, and the sofa bed in the living room, were comfortable with nice, clean sheets, pillows and blankets. The bathroom is immaculate - double sink, plenty of new, clean towels.

Beautiful views from the private deck. Ours overlooked Ogunquit beach. The Marginal Way is accessible from several locations directly on the property. Short walk into town and to Perkins Cove -- so it's a perfect location all around. A convenient trolley stop is located at the end of the street.

Housekeeping was excellent. Our rooms were serviced in a timely fashion each day, and requests we made were handled immediately. A very nice breakfast is provided daily from 8 to 10am - you may eat in the indoor breakfast room, or outside on the patio, or take it back to your room. At night, the breakfast room turns into "Bawdy Sally's Pub" -- which we did try one evening -- and was excellent as well (thanks Mike!). The kitchenette contained everything we needed for a quick snack or a hot drink during our stay.

The only thing bad about our stay was that it had to end : ). We can't wait to return!

We LOVE the Beachmere. The room decor is nothing fancy, but it's new and clean and perfectly adequate. We have always stayed in either the West building or the new units at the end of the South.
We love the little cove beaches, plus the fact that it's walking distance to everything in town and right on the Marginal Way. The morning continental breakfast is perfect and the staff is attentive and friendly. I could go on and on....

The only deterrent I can give is if you want a pool or have kids that are easily bored, I'd suggest you stay elsewhere. It's a peaceful and calm setting.

Our fourth year in a row and we have yet to have any complaint worth noting. In fact, every year I've left suggestions on the room suggestion card and am amazed that each year when we return, at least one of the suggestions has been implemented! Way to go Beachmere!!!

Our room in the South building had a nice view. The place is very well cared-for, and the staff was nice. It's pricey, but this is one of those cases where you get what you pay for, and we'd definitely consider coming here again.

The "sumptuous" continental breakfast wasn't really any better than any Hampton Inn.

I had one gripe. They suggest that I tip the housekeeper $2.50 per day per person. I always tip the housekeeper, but not at that rate (unless I'm alone and then I beat it). In all my years of visiting hotels, only once before has a hotel suggested such a thing, and that hotel didn't suggest, it added it to my bill. If I'm spending $250 a night for a room, I should think that the hotel can pay their housekeepers a decent wage and not beg for additional compensation.

Dear Ed C
Thank you for your review here on TripAdvisor. I’m glad you enjoyed your stay with us and that you noticed how hard the staff works to keep our grounds, rooms and amenities well cared for. We find many guests enjoy our continental breakfast consisting of home baked breads, muffins, scones, granola, fruit, cereals, bagels, hard boiled eggs (and more) satisfactory for their start to the day.

I’m sorry that you felt our suggestion for tipping our housekeeper was a plea to help us pay our staff. We pay top wages to our housekeepers. As with any service industry, tipping is based on satisfaction, and we do not add an automatic gratuity to the bill. With the many international travelers who stay with us, we merely make a suggestion, not a rule, to tipping of the housekeeping staff. What is printed in our our guest information book states “We are often asked about tipping. Tipping the staff is purely discretionary. Guidelines used in the area are $2.50 per guest per day for the housekeepers. For 3 people our suggestion comes to $7.50 a day, a 3% gratuity and is discretionary. I’m sorry if this offended you as it was certainly not our intent. We hope to see you back at The Beachmere Inn in the future. Winter well in California!

Just returned from a wonderful 50th birthday celebration with 5 girlfriends. We were all more than pleased with the Beachmere and it's terrific staff. The entire staff, from bartenders to housekeepers went out of their way to be helpful and friendly. The staff arranged a spa day for us that was perfect, Sara (owner/manager) went out of her way to make sure we had a great time and made us feel right at home. The view is spectacular, rooms were clean and comfortable and the homemade donuts at breakfast were the best. Can't wait to come back!

This trip was for my group of 6 close friends, all turning 50 this year, to get away to mark the occasion. We considered many different towns, but ended up settling on Ogunquit. The Beachmere was rated #1 on TripAdvisor, and had everything we were looking for. We were in 3 rooms in the South building, each room with a queen & twin bed. The rooms were spotlessly clean with a small kitchenette. The views were spectacular. Everyone on the staff was extremely friendly, helpful, and it is apparent they take pride in their hotel. Everything in town in within walking distance. We rented a car for one day to take a side trip to Portland and Kennebunkport, but other than that, we walked. Sarah was extremely helpful in the planning of this trip, and she was very friendly and kind to us while we were there. She arranged for us to have a wonderful afternoon at the spa, with a lovely spread of snacks and wine, and Kim was there to make sure everything went as planned that day. Do not hesitate to stay here; I can't imagine a better hotel.

From the warm sun and beach days of summer to the cold winds of January the Beachmere has something to do for everyone. The marginal way is outstanding at all times of the year and off season affords you the chance to see all the quaintness of the town with about 250,000 less tourists sharing it with you. Love, love, love this place, and will undoubtedly return soon...

Dear Binnyboo2-
Thank you for your nicely worded review! Ogunquit remains a hidden secret in the winter time and I'm pleased to hear you enjoyed your March stay with us. One of my favorite activities in the winter is to snowshoe Marginal Way, hopefully you were able to try this as well. Great restaurant deals, a deserted beach and the beauty of the snow makes this a great time to unwind completely. Hope to see you again!
